Medicated Pete came in to confess that he'd lied the other day – he never kissed that girl he took out to lunch: "That whole kiss thing was really, um, down – down deep inside."
Howard didn't understand why Pete would lie: "Did you tell me you made out with her because you wanted to impress me? Because you didn't wanna look like a loser?"
Pete broke down: "Yes. I didn't want to be embarrassed...I just wanted to feel like I was making some progress, you know."
