After Shuli reported that Eric the Midget had expressed his willingness to return to the show, Johnny Fratto–Eric’s manager–called in to say Eric’s lone condition would hurt Howard’s brain: “He wants to do the red carpet for Smurfs.”

Howard said he had a condition of his own: “Will Eric dress as a Smurf?”

Johnny said Eric just might: “This motherf’er collects Smurfs!”

Howard later amended his offer: “If he holds a sign that says, ‘I’m a gay Smurf’…and he has to dress like a gay Smurf.”
