Howard got Mike Walker of the National Enquirer on the line, as he does every Thursday, to play "The Gossip Game," in which Mike reads four gossip items – three (allegedly) true, and one false – and the crew has guess which is the fake. Mike then read this week's stories:
1. The "American Idol" security staff assigned to keep Paula Abdul away from the contestants use a codename for her: "Mrs. Robinson."
2. Ben Affleck was pranked by Sasha Baron Cohen in the upcoming "Bruno" movie.
3. Johnny Depp saved some extras on the set of his new movie from a out-of-control stunt car.
4. Gary Sinese interrupted a couple having sex in a car because he thought it was an assault situation.
Howard, Robin and Fred all thought the Johnny Depp story sounded too much like another story, and Artie broke rank, saying Mike seemed to self-satisfied with the Ben Affleck item. Mike then revealed that everyone was wrong this week; Gary Sinese frequently interrupts people, but not when they're having sex.
