Howard's dad called in to discuss Howard's new contract, so Howard said Ben would benefit directly: "Dad, I'm making enough money now that I can buy you hair."
Ben thanked Howard's staff: "Congratulations to the whole crew there."
Howard said Ben actually had a lot do with the new contract: "My dad's of the theory that if you have something good going, you keep it going till it ends...I kept hearing his voice in my head whenever I considered not working."
Howard also credited his psychiatrist's influence on his decision to continue broadcasting: "He convinced me I enjoy it! I don't know how he did that...I think he's right. I hope he's right! I've got five more years of this."
