Howard played High Pitch Mike's new Artie-calling-in- sick-skewering "Lowdown." Mike then came in to ask Howard how Artie's situation was different from that of K.C.'s, as K.C.'s behavior warranted an intervention. Howard said the difference was that Artie was a good worker and K.C.'s problems were affecting the workplace. Mike understood, and Robin seconded Howard's assessment, as Artie was grappling with both weight and health issues.
