Late in the show, Eric the Actor called in with some riveting material: "I'm calling because of the fact that you shut me down last week when I was trying to request something." Howard moaned that he couldn't afford Eric's drag: "I have a pace to this show." So Eric fumed ("I realize you're doing a show, jackass.") that he only wanted to be the show's correspondent at an upcoming wrestling event. Howard refused, citing Eric's infamously uncooperative reporting: "You're not willing to ask questions that are interesting."
