Howard said he had Eric on the line and said that he must be retarded. Howard said that he has figured it out because Eric called Gary up in the office yesterday and he was threatening him. He said Eric wants to sue Gary. He said he got an email from Robert Mills and another guy from the head of TNA Wrestling. Eric said he’s not the head of TNA. Howard said it’s obvious that they’re letters from fans and they’re not the real people.

A few real life events led to the conception of the final episode of season 2, â€œIn The Bagâ€. For example one part of the story really did happen. Sal drove into Manhattan on a weekend and parked in the parking garage where Gary parks. When Sal went to pay the attendant told him he can park in Garyâ€™s spot for free because Gary is never in on the weekends. After this true event Sal imagined it could be easy for him rent out Garyâ€™s parking spot for half price. Sal didnâ€™t do this but it did inspire one of the storylines for â€œIn The Bag.â€
The second real life event that impacted this episode was the chance meeting of one of the actors. Co-director Jason Katz and I were walking through Penn Station when we met Alex, a midget street performer dressed like Michael Jackson and dancing to his songs. This was months before season 2 was even in pre-production but we both know we had to have Little Alex on the second season. Alex didnâ€™t speak English too well and it was tough getting a hold of him on the phone. There were times when he wouldnâ€™t return our calls for weeks and we were worried we might miss out on the chance to work with him. Alex finally got in touch with us and itâ€™s a good thing he did because he delivered a few of the funniest images in â€œShow In The Hallwayâ€ history.
