Multiple times in the past, King has commented on her giant smile -- "that smile..." But on the Mon show, he took it a step further: KOAB: How do you like your women Howard? You don't like them too smart, right? Ronnie: [Laughs heartily] Oh man, that's a real major insult. Howard: Whaddaya mean...whaddaya mean by that?? KOAB: No...no...I'm not sayin' that... Ronnie: [In case the audience missed the subtlety, Ronnie clarifies for us.] You just called his wife stupid, you moron. Howard: Yeahh... KOAB: Nononono, listen. Ronnie: Oh yes you did Howard: [Clumsy attempt at defection by pretending it never came up and proceeding to ask Robin an unrelated question. Then Howard tries to get him off the phone ("I gotta get back to news") but KOAB presses on.] KOAB: No but, you gotta tell me, do you like them [talked over by Howard] Howard: [In kind of an exhausted, rehearsed, unconvinced, rote manner.] I like a very smart woman.

I need a woman to engage me. Booey: [Chimes in for boff with another defection attempt, and this time KOAB bites; at which point Howard manages to get King off the phone.] Of course, Howard handled it as he usually does when outmaneuvered: By pretending it didn't happen or defection or changing the subject or just surrendering and hanging up. What a defeated loser. He can't even argue effectively anymore because he has no ammo.
