Early in the show, Howard noted that Eric had emailed "In Plain Sight's" producers to rescind his demands for Peps-Cola. In the email--since forwarded to Howard--Eric claimed it was all a ruse for airtime: "That was a good funny call this morning. That was a funny call as a bit." Howard thought there was more to it: "I think Eric felt bad about the letter and is backpedaling...[but] it's over. We'll never know what's going on there."
