    I'm not wishing ill upon anyone, or hoping for their death, but I was discussing this earlier with a friend. I made the proposition that if within the remainder of this contract (or if he renews) there's a good chance we could see Howard have a total breakdown, especially given a scenario where in a short time span his parents were to pass (They're no spring chickens) and Robins "cured" cancer gets the better of her and she checks out too.

    I think with no parents and no Robin, contract or not he would just end the show and become a quiet recluse a la Howard Hughes holed up in his mansion never to be seen again, surrounded by hundreds of cats while he paints alone in his study.

    Can you forsee any other scenarios that would make Howard finally "crack"

    - Beth or Ashley in The Fappening.
    - He and Beth being robbed at gunpoint.
    - Being fired by Sirius for poor performance.
    - Leaked photos presenting indisputable proof that it's a wig.
    - Whichever daughter is living in the idiot desert getting killed in an air raid or beheaded by ISIS.
    - Pics of Beff blowing Nacho or his horse.
    - High-Pitch Mike being diagnosed with AIDS and Howard having to work in the same general proximity.

    There are a million things that could cause it, but they're all just fantasies.

    Replace 'dates' with 'fucks' and 'Ronnie' with 'Ant'

    No. Well, not that you would notice anyway.

    And that's not to shit upon the funny stuff that has been posted in this thread.

    Buchwald is an expert at appealing to Howard's ego. Buchwald enticed Howard to set up a power of attorney regarding major dealings with Howard's estate if Howard is ever :quote:incapacitated:quote:

    Buckwald: Howard, let's say events contrive against you and a million things go wrong in your life at once. Things we don't like to think about.
    Howard: eh, what Don? What are you talking about?
    Buckwald: Howard, sometimes things go wrong all at the same time and our judgement is clouded. I don't think it will happen to you, but God forbid, catastrophe strikes and you have some challenges dealing with it. For example, you have more than one close loved one pass in short order...God forbid.
    Howard: Yeah?
    Buckwald: You will have a million things to deal with in your own mind. You won't be prepared to make rational choices. So at that moment, we just need to set aside major decisions. Let someone else deal with the major business and publicity issue -- very briefly, and nothing is irreversible. It will give you time to put your personal business in order. It just makes sense.
    Howard: Don, you always do right by me.
    Buckwald: I'll have the paperwork finished by the end of the day. A courier will bring it by for you to sign.
    Howard: Don, what would I do without you?

    I would love to see the shenanigans he has engaged in over the years be brought to light.
