Late in the show, David Arquette called in to discuss his “Dancing with the Stars” gig: “I’m doing this to win it.”

Howard suggested David try to steal Chaz Bono’s trans-gender thunder: “You should have a tail somewhere on your body. And say you’re trans-species.”

David laughed off the idea, saying he was busy training with Kim, his “beautiful” dance partner: “I’m learning. It’s really difficult…but I’m taking it seriously. I’m training my butt off.”

Howard and Robin tried to find out if there was any romantic connection, but David begged off. Howard instead pitched another idea: a potential for a romantic connection between David’s sister Alexis, a male-to-female transgendered person, and Chaz, a female-to-male transgendered person.

David laughed: “That’s not a bad idea!”

Asked if Courtney Cox would come out to support him, David said he thought so: “She’ll be there. Listen. We’re best friends.”

But things could get weird if she brings a date: “That would be awkward.” Howard then suggested a few more ways for David to steal Chaz’s press, like dancing in costume as Hitler or Osama bin Laden, but David begged off: “Now I really got to be going.”
