I always knew that, deep down, Simmons hated the kidding at his expense. You could see it in his eyes every time Letterman teased him. He's like the kid in high school who knew he was a pariah but kept acting up anyway because he didn't know how else to be. (Lori knows a certain former neighbor of Andy who would fit that description.)

Anna: Lori was referring to an excitable friend of ours from high school, not Richard Simmons.
