WHY is Robin even bothering coming back to the office?

    Aside from the "if you are well enough to do book signings you are well enough to come to the office", it's not like Howard really cares if she's in person or via ISDN.

    She sold her apartment and is moving to NJ full time.

    By the looks of the Post picture, she's clearly not slim and healthy.

    So why bother?

    ...shes hoping it will be a big homecoming, lots of media attention and after the spotlight is on her triumphant return we will be reminded to buy robins new book about how vegetables saved her life.

    Brando's take on Bob Hope is exactly how I feel about Wiggy and Gunty. From the great Lawrence Grobel Playboy interview:

    BRANDO: Bob Hope will go to the opening of a phone booth in a gas station in Anaheim, provided they have a camera and three people there. He'll go to the opening of a market and receive an award. Get an award from Thom McAn for wearing their shoes. It's pathetic. It's a bottomless pit. A barrel that has no floor. He must be a man who has an ever-crumbling estimation of himself. He's constantly filling himself up. He's like a junkie--an applause junkie, like Sammy Davis Jr. Sammy desperately longs to be loved, approved of. He's very talented. What happens to those people when they can't get up and do their shtick, God only knows. Bob Hope, Christ, instead of growing old gracefully or doing something with his money, be helpful, all he does is he has an anniversary with the President looking on. It's sad. He gets on an airplane every two minutes, always going someplace. It didn't bother him at all to work the Vietnam war. Oh, he took that in his stride. He did his World War Two and Korean War act. "Our boys" and all that. He's a pathetic guy.

    She is essentially showing up as a "guest" to promote her book. Back to ISDN after her appearance.

    I think that she is looking for an angle. Lets say that Sirius won't let Robin into the building.
    Pull the black card.
    =
    Free publicity.

    When Howard cared about the show he would have had Robin come back after a vacation to build hype. Having her coming in a random day is pretty strange/meaningless.
    BTW. Why wont she buy a condo in Florida so she can do the show with Howard. The show will be horrible (even MORE) when Howard starts using ISDN next year.

    She is trying to promote her stupid book. She already started this morning when she kept asking Howard if she can make him lunch. He kept saying no, and she just kept repeating herself. I wonder how many "cooking with robin" bits there will be in the near future?

    Her book will do better than Lisa G's, but nowhere near a best seller. That ship has sailed, hit a rock and sunk to the bottom.

    ...well her pitch to get a story in the news on "what robin cooks for howards lunch" fell flat and with a quickness. that was just as bad as trying to hit people up for donations to fifteeeeeeen.

    That is exactly correct. How would it look trying to sell a book like hers if she couldn't make it into work.
