Is the Jokeman a Sad Man?

Howard and the gang kicked off the show discussing Jackie's "shantytown" home on the Long Island shore. Artie said Jackie seemed like he was always happy with his carefree life, but Fred and Howard thought Jackie had really just convinced himself that he was happy. Robin speculated that Jackie seemed happy when he was paddling out to the jetty in front of his house carrying a couple beers in his teeth, and everyone agreed – but no one thought he could be happy with his movie projects.
