Howard started off the show mourning Greg Giraldo, a longtime friend of the show, saying he didn't see Greg's overdose coming. Robin agreed: "You didn't see any out of control behavior. He wasn't even the kind of wacky guy where you were like, he must be out of control sometimes." Howard noted that Greg left behind four children: "I feel sick for his wife and family." Howard then played a clip of Greg's best Stern show appearance, a vicious set at the Gary Roast--nearly every joke killed. One line, leveled at fellow roaster Lisa Lampanelli, was particularly revealing: "It's good to see you, Lisa. Usually when I'm this close to a fat chick at 7:30 in the morning, it's because I'm coming out of a blackout."
