A little before he was due at Letterman, Artie popped another Subutex and missed four calls from Dana. When Artie finally got back to her, Dana told him that she'd be "glad" to check him and the girls into the hotel, as she has the confirmation number. In a panic, Artie claimed to be going through a tunnel and hung up. Artie then read the email Vinnie sent Teddy (and Dana), which outlined the Artie's whole clandestine plan for the Penthouse girls – literally every detail.
Dana then called back, and though she initially played along, she quickly let her anger get the better of her and began yelling at Artie. Vinnie then called in from his bathroom (instead of the bus, as he used to do) and apologized, explaining that he accidentally emailed the plan to Dana; because that was the address he had for Artie and didn't realize it was hers. Artie thanked Vinnie and said he sent the Penthouse girls off to dinner by themselves. Artie then said that after all the chaos, Dana wouldn't let him come over afterward, saying she had "company".
