Howard's Weekend

Howard recounts a call from his mother.

Early in the show, Howard told Robin that his mother had called him over the weekend to discuss the foot pain he'd complained about on the air. Raye had been frantic: "What happened at the doctor? What are you doing? I want you to have a nice old age." Howard said he was shaken by his mother's concern: "Now when I'm running, but my mom is beside me, crying while I'm running." After Dr. Sarno evaluated Howard's pain as psychosomatic, Howard linked up with his photography teacher: "We went and, you know, shot some couples." (With their cameras.) Robin thought it didn't sound therapeutic: "Is that fun?" Howard shot back ("I love it. I love learning.") that he also had to learn how to extract Robin's emails--16 of them--from Beth's junk folder: "You're a virus in Beth's computer."
