Howard started off the show wondering which of the in-studio crew was the most disturbed, leading Robin to say, "I'm beginning to think I should part from this group because I'm so well." Fred shot back, "The moment you say something like that, you take 16 steps back...Artie, this is where they can't attack each other so the vortex comes this way." Artie laughed, "Oh, I know." After some debate, Howard decided that "The most normal is Gary, then Fred is more normal than Robin and Robin is more normal than Artie." Gary asked Howard where he ranked himself, and Howard conceded: "The most disturbed person is me, but Artie is in the most trouble."
