Hello Eric, Are You There?? Eric?

Eric the Midget called in - but Howard and the gang pretended they couldn't hear his repeated screams: "I'm here! Damnit, I'm here, retard!" When Howard eventually "heard" Eric's cries, the little guy was on fire: "I was going to apologize for yesterday's call, but f' that...now I won't." Artie was so overjoyed; his laugh just turned into a high-pitched whine, but Howard quickly grew tired of the little guy and hung up. Later, Eric called in to tell Steve Langford he was "interfering with my business with Johnny [Fratto]."
