FEBRUARY 5, 2001: BACK FROM THE GOLD COAST

On this date in 2001, the show had just returned from a week of shows in Las Vegas and Los Angeles and everyone had had a great time - except maybe Scott the Engineer. During the trip, Scott had slipped and fallen at a pool party, hitting the ground and screaming, "I can't feel my legs! I can't feel my legs!" Nobody even noticed that he'd taken a tumble and what's worse, the gang continued to goof on Scott and his bad luck once they got back to New York. Other memorable moments from the west coast included Benjy skinny dipping in the Playboy Mansion, Howard's $100,000 bet in Vegas, and the private jet ride in which Howard asked Jackie Martling to look around at everything they had and appreciate how great their lives were. The Joke Man would resign from the show a few months later.
