Howard started off the show saying he belittled his psychiatrist yesterday and was starting to feel bad about it: “He told me to bring my anger into the room and I said, ‘Ok. Here’s my anger and I’ll direct it at you’…I’m just a horrible person and I’ve come to the conclusion that I should quit therapy.”

Artie said he was also struggling with his shrink: “I can remember anyone’s phone number. It’s weird…but this guy I gotta keep looking it up. It’s like I’m fighting it.”

Howard referenced the shrink Robin used to see: “Did she quit you or all therapy? I have a feeling she just quit you.”

Robin claimed the woman quit completely – and then revealed she’d been replaced: “I do talk to someone. A counselor. I’m not telling you who…she’s a doctor. I’m not in therapy but I have someone I talk to when I need guidance.”

Howard asked if the woman was a life coach, but Robin denied it, saying the woman was a psychologist: “I use her when I need her.”

Later, Robin repeated: “It’s not treatment.”
