Howard promised that no matter what he decides, "I will never say a bad word about Sirius. I will compete with them and I will be fierce in my competition...but I will never say a bad word about them. They've been nothing but honorable."
Howard said he was proud of the business he brought to the company: "They will be a strong competitor of ours if we are somewhere else...we have all done something miraculous here."
That said, Howard weighed his options: "One is I'm never working again."
Option 2: "We're going to a new opportunity."
And 3: "We're staying here."
Or an entirely new frontier: "I'm building a rocket. We're all going to outer space."
Bobo then called in to ask for Howard's chair in the event of the show's departure, and Howard relented, apologizing to the chair: "The poor chair will be raped."
