Howard noted that he'd considered pulling several pranks on the audience today, like having Ralph sit in for the entire show.
Robin was glad Howard had abandoned the idea: "You did that once before. Where you said Ralph would be was going to be able to participate on the show but on the phone. And I lost it."
Howard said he'd also wanted to pretend he'd been fired and replaced by David Lee Roth--and had even begun negotiating the stunt with David.
Howard was glad it didn't work out: "It doesn't make sense here...if we were fired, the channels would just be gone."
Howard said he also almost had Beth come in and pretend to be pregnant, as a prank on Robin, knowing she would invariably say she'd called it: "You love being right."
Robin bristled: "No no. That's the old me."
