GARY FELL ASLEEP DURING YESTERDAY'S SHOW
HowardTV brought up footage of Gary sleeping at his desk during yesterday's show on the in-studio monitors--Howard was pissed: "You were snoring and licking your chops!" Gary tried to deny it at first but later conceded: "I do look [passed] out. I'll admit that...I didn't think I was but it looks like I am." Howard (almost) couldn't believe it: "This is disrespectful to me...put your energy into your job."
Howard blamed Gary's slumber on the black-and-white cookies delivered every Wednesday morning as part of cupcake Wednesday, but Gary denied it: "I probably had 7 or 8. The little ones--not the big ones." Howard seemed hurt: "It's as offensive to me as Benjy showing up late."
DEPACE CATCHES SHRAPNEL
Gary later attacked HowardTV's Scott DePace for showing anyone the footage, as he'd promised to never use the camera in Gary's office to monitor his behavior: "You broke that trust!" Scott initially fought back ("Put a hat over the lens when you don't want to be seen!") but later apologized after Howard told him that Gary was right: "You're a liar. You have to just accept that."
SLEEPING BOOEY CONTROVERSY PT.2
HowardTV director, Scott DePace tried again to explain why he broke Gary's trust and showed Howard the 'Sleeping Booey' footage: "Everybody's going crazy in the control room that Gary's sleeping. I'm trying to direct a segment!" Gary said he tried to rationalize Scott's position but quickly exhausted himself: "I ran out of buts...you're not a man of your word and you can't be trusted."
HowardTV producer, Doug Goodstein came in to say Scott should "just apologize." Scott relented: "I promise you, we'll never use anything [again]...I'm sorry." Gary accepted at an arm's length: "I actually don't care anymore...he doesn't have any feelings. He's inhuman." Scott later claimed he'd negotiated the office cam discretion with Gary as a company man: "When he sat with me, it wasn't me. It was a representative of HowardTV." Gary was unsympathetic: "Go run an oil company, you asshole."
GARY TURNS THE CAMERA ON SCOTT
Early in the show, Howard again faulted Gary for denying that he fell asleep at work, so Gary came in to repeat his claim: "I really did not think I fell asleep...I closed my eyes." Howard critiqued the footage, pointing out Gary's gaping maw: "Your mouth is fully open when you sleep. And I'm going to be honest, whenever I see someone with their mouth full open when they sleep, I think it indicates a dullness...it seems dopey."
Gary focused his anger on Scott DePace, as--according to Gary--Scott didn't go far enough to vet the Sleeping Booey footage: "He didn't really try that hard." Gary challenged Scott to have a camera trained on him all day as well: "If there were a camera on Scott, there would be weeks of material." Scott accepted the challenge--Gary promised to personally install the camera as soon as possible.
SLEEPING BOOEY DAY 5
Howard reiterated that Gary's work ethic has not been tainted by the controversial Sleeping Booey footage: "He fell asleep [on the job] one time in 30 years." Scott DePace came in to agree: "I've never even seen him pick his nose...[but] I feel like he has done some stuff that we've missed." Howard was annoyed: "Why don't we all just agree to hate each other and move on with the show?"
Scott confessed that he would've fought harder to withhold the footage if he and Gary were closer: "They asked, 'If it were Will, would you have defended him more?' And I said yes!" Howard told Scott he was only digging himself deeper: "You've got to stop talking...you're going into areas you don't even need to go into." Howard said he had to apologize to Gary: "When the tape was brought to me, I did the wrong thing."
DEPACE APOLOGIZES TO GARY
Scott decided he wanted to apologize to Gary as well: "Gary, I apologize to you for breaking my word. I also apologize to you for not defending you more when Doug brought the tape to Howard." Gary speculated that Scott would've defended him more if he wasn't so competitive--a point Scott later confirmed: "It would take more guys to rape me than it would [to rape] you."
