Howard said his big guy's night out dinner went well Thursday night, but Artie spent most of the time trying to get his cell phone to work. Artie explained that his phone wasn't working inside Nobu and he had a poker game to set up - though it was a mistake to worry at all, as he ended up losing 8 grand at the game. Howard laughed that he was so bummed out by Artie's behavior, he tried to talk with Benjy: "He wasn't eating anything...wasn't it bumming you out?"
Howard was further bummed out by Sal's stories about some of the things going on in his life. Fred and Artie thought the stories were entertaining, so Sal came in to say he was glad they enjoyed themselves: "I don't even realize that it's sad anymore." Howard said he learned a lot about the guys at dinner, including Benjy's "wild sex life" and JD's surprising wealth of film knowledge: "He made references that were intelligent and articulate...I was drinking. I don't know."
