After a break, Howard complained that Gary had disrupted his breakfast by repeatedly coughing and hacking while pitching ideas before the show started.

Gary claimed it might be psychological problem – he was fine driving into work and even in his office – it's only in front of Howard, the one person he knows would it would upset, that he has coughing fits. JD said Gary had at least done his best to disguise the issue: "He tried to very subtle, like, clear his throat."
