Howard took a call from Pittsburgh Pete who said that he thinks Artie has fooled them again with this suicide thing because he thinks he’s just doing that to take time off. Howard said this is the real deal with Artie and it’s not the kind of thing that he’d do to take time off. Howard said this was a really serious thing and how he survived it was beyond him. Pete said if you really want to go then you’ll find a way to do it. Howard said he thinks that Artie really wanted to check out. Robin said that it was an accident that his mother had come by that day. She was the one who found him.
Howard wasn’t sure what to say about this story in the paper about Artie (Stern sidekick in suicide try). He said he was hoping the story wouldn’t come out. He thought they were out of the woods with that because the family was able to keep it out of the news for so long.
