Artie started off the show noting that he threw an impromptu party at his beach house over the break, and other than Howard, almost everyone showed up. Robin laughed that Artie missed most of the party by taking a 2-hour-long shower, so Artie explained that he was hanging with his new friend Jessica and having some fun in there. Artie wasn't the only one who had a good time Ralph took the opportunity to turn the invite into a 3-day stay. Artie said he and Jessica hooked up in his bedroom during the party and he even managed some pretty-good-for-a-fat-guy maneuvers, but he was bothered by the noises coming from the party downstairs particularly Robin's laugh, as it made him paranoid that she was laughing at him. Robin remarked that she wasn't laughing at Artie, though she was upset by the lack of vegetarian meal options.
