Early in the show, Howard read an email about Eric the Midget from one of the "In Plain Sight" producers: "My God, the little f'er is maddening. No, the dates never changed. The only variable was whether he was going to work one day or two. But I told him from the f'ing beginning it was the 23rd and 24th. And to make life easier for him, we're doing it all on the 24th. You had it right when you said we all live in the real world and he doesn't..." The email continued: "I will now attempt some deep breathing to calm down. I have some script pages now, if you want to do anything on the show next week. This is insanely annoying but oddly fun at the same time. Perhaps it's because I'm a masochist." Eric then called in answer the charges: "I don't know what he's talking about...all I did was change the 23rd from a morning flight to an afternoon flight."
