Eric the Actor called in with a request, so Howard, bored, feigned sleep: "I'm sorry. I fell asleep. What's going on? That's the first time that's happened on the air. I was completely out. I apologize to my audience for acting unprofessional. … Alright, Eric. Thank you for the call. That was Eric the Actor. I'm sorry I missed what he had to say. I'm sure it was fascinating."
