‘For Once, JD Was Articulate’

Howard played a clip from yesterday’s Wrap-Up Show of JD struggling to explain that he always felt awkward when he talks on the air. Howard laughed that he wanted to hire a stenographer to copy down whatever JD says in-studio and immediately repeat it back. The crew put JD in an isolation booth and placed bets on which word or phrase JD would say first when he returned to the studio: “I don’t know,” “whatever” or “like.” When he came back, JD held the conversation well – it took almost five minutes before uttering one of the key phrases/words in question. Howard was amazed: “For once, JD was articulate.”
