She is mentally ill, Pauley. I believe due to her childhood she never fully developed into an adult. She laughs like a 12 year old girl. Ever see a group of 12 year old girls together? They just laugh and laugh for no reason. That's Robin. And for some reason, Howard has been able to put up with it for years. I sympathize with her due to her health problems. I hope she is able to recover from whatever ails her. However, she is truly crazy and makes it really difficult to listen to the show.

I think we're all forget this^. I remember turning off Howard the first time I heard him years ago because I could stand her inane cackling. I've gotten used to so it doesn't irritate me as much. But she has just been the giggler he puts there to laugh at him, kinda like when he had people clapping in the studio. Jackie and Artie laughing illicited more laughter from others though than Robin ever does. (*kinda Yaqi sounded voice*)

Well I'm trying to look at it rationally minus the emotion. It can't just be about an irrational ego fear of all focus turning to her, I'm thinking its mostly about not wanting to upset the apple cart, avoiding confrontation, business as usual just come in punch the clock and make as little effort as possible which includes avoiding unnecessary expenditure of energy on having an emotion about RQ -- how many times have we heard him say "how do you get a gameshow, perfect job show up to ask a few dumb questions off cue cards and get paid" and realize he's slowly molded his own show into that template.

Casey Kasem rage about a "goddamn death dedication" coming out of an uptempo number.
