Ok, so I tuned into Request Week on the show and one of the segments requested was the time Howard gave Robin a car. Clearly this is a fake request because the segment has nothing to offer other than Howard going on and on about how wonderful he was giving Robin a car. So the segment starts by Howard announcing he bought Robin a car. He keeps on going on how great he was for doing it and describing the events of buying her the car and giving it to her as if he was the center of the story and Robin was an after thought. He said he thought about getting her a silver Mercedes because he knows she liked silver cars, but got the black one because he liked it better. Of course Robin overcompensated in saying Howard made the right choice because she already has silver cars and Mr. X liked the black color better. Everyone on the air went on and on about how the car Howard bought was far better than any other car you could have got and how Howard bought the perfect car. I missed the segment back in 2006. I admit I was a Stern Sheep back then and probably would have thought Howard was awesome for doing it then. But now it is clear that Howard bought this car to look like a bigshot.
