Eric the Midget called in advance of Dax Shepard's appearance on the show to have Howard ask if any of NBC's 'Parenthood' (which Dax stars on) were shot in Northern California, explaining: "It's a show based in the Bay Area."
No one could figure out why that was an important question, so Eric confessed: "Because maybe, I don't know, there's a shot I could be on the show."
Howard laughed: "I get it. I'll ask if you can be on the show. Thank you."
