Howard started off the show complaining that construction in his apartment had upset Bianca's sleeping routine - and, by proxy, his and Beth's as well. Gary came in to say he had a similar problem, as his dog sleeps in the bed with him and his wife, making things difficult when they want to have sex.
Howard wondered: "Do you ever ask yourself if Mary ever thinks, 'Oh good! The dog's in here so I don't have to have sex with my husband." Gary shrugged: "Maybe. I don't know."
