He said Beth was in the other room, so I don't think that was it. I have a feeling that it involved either his daughters or his ex-wife. It can't be work-related because that passion left him a while ago.
I'm with Bark on this one. I believe Howard's childlike outbursts have to do with the constant guilt he carries about abandoning his family. Or moreso, the realization that after he abandoned them, they are doing better without him. Alison moved on - quickly, his older daughters have moved away, and his youngest girl finally has a dad that spends time with her. Sure beats being raised by the "cleaning woman" like the other two.
For a self-absorbed oaf like The King of Irrelevancy, that must hurt quite a bit. Haha....keep going to therapy so you can make it better :jj:
Maybe next time he beats his idea-less head he can muster up enough strength from those spaghetti girl arms and knock his wig sideways.
Now, that would almost be interesting Howard TV.
