Artie learned that backstage passes to one of his comedy shows were being sold on eBay - and the seller was his "friend" Ass Napkin Ed. Artie was confused by the news, as Ed was really just selling his guest list 'plus-one' spots.
Ed then called in to say he'd sell as many plus-ones he could - leading Howard to laugh that he never asked Artie in the first place. Artie promised Ed he could bring his friends (Goblin and Chester) and two more. Ed continued to press his luck, asking if he, Goblin, Chester and the Ebay winners could eat some of the free food in Artie's dressing room. Artie laughed: "Can you find out if Goblin or Chester have eating issues, like, can they eat meat?" Ed didn't get the joke and asked: "Can Hanzi come?" Artie said yes. "Can he bring two people?" Artie just laughed: "Tell Hanzi to text me." Hanzi did just that, texting Artie that he never asked to be included in this, adding that he couldn't even get to the gig anyway.
