    I never understood Artie's beef with Gary on this? It seemed like he was legit angry about it for some reason on the air. Was it because Gary took the place of other comedians who could have gone but there wasn't any room on the plane?

    Because Gary has a wife & kids & Artie didn't want to be responsible if anything bad happened. Plus, I bet Gary never shut the fuck up the whole way there & back. :eek:

    Maybe because Gary is an arrogant insufferable douchebag.

    He's not one of the comedians and probably annoying to be around.

    Because Artie wanted another comedian in that spot, if I remember correctly. Plus he was probably not wanting Gary around because he was Howard's puppet.

    You give Artie too much credit. He didn't want Gary to go because at that point he saw Gary as the aloof delusional celebrity that he acted like and didn't think he should kick out one of his buddies for a guy who doesn't genuinely care about the "lesser" people fighting a war, and who got bored in Vegas.

    Agreed with others that Garry is Howard's rat and Artie didn't want howard knowing every little detail of his trip. Plus Artie was a raging feind than.

    Because Gary was a waste of space. If another comedian came, they could share time on stage -- less work for Artie.

    Of course- that was Artie's story about caring about Gary's family... we all know that the real reason is that he didn't want to hang out with the boring monkey... Who would?!?


    ETA: some USO talk around 22min in:

    Artie is suicidal, Gary is not.

    As it came out in the end, Artie was on all kinds of dope that trip and Gary saw the damage first hand. Who would want their "boss" to see all of that?

    -Artie rather have the spot filled by a comedian buddy, Baba Booey is useless.
    -Arties finds Gary annoying
    -Didn't want Gary there as a 'spy' so to say, to report back to Howard whatever fat junkie was up to.

    Those are my guesses.

    That's what I thought too but Gary seemed genuinely hurt when Artie said what he said.

    That was my thought, and Gary in a way did that when he filmed Artie while he was strung up on something. He was probably worried that the monkey would get bored and hover over him the whole time, like a portly surveillance camera.
