Howard said he didn’t want his staff to turn into the nudges at Piers Morgan’s who held him for pre- and post-interviews for over 90 minutes: “Once they had me, they took advantage of me.”

After Howard asked that Fred show Benjy how to behave, Fred begged off: “I think Benjy’s untrainable.”

Howard later told Benjy to ask him before approaching a guest–even though the answer will always be no: “But ask me if you get confused.”
