Howard listened to a threatening message Eric the Midget left on Gary's answering machine: "After spending hours and hours and hours on hold, if you think you are ever going to hear another live call..."
Howard didn't think Eric would ever understand his own appeal: "I think my fun with him is, whenever he says he's not going to call in live again, is to get him to call in live again...[and] I guarantee you he'll come back again."
Robin laughed: "Of course! He's addicted."
Jeff the Drunk then called in to report that he was home from the hospital--his surgery required an 11-inch incision and removed a tumor "the size of a baseball."
Howard was unimpressed ("Nobody cares.") and wondered if Jeff could ever be as interesting as he used to be: "Do you think you could fall asleep in the street again?"
Jeff said he'd try: "Well, you know, add alcohol. And it's a party."
