Howie has never been an activist like Jerry was
("get on the phone and call so-and-so's office...").
Jerry has used that famous soundbite  from "Network":
"I want you to get out of your chairs right now,  go
to your window, open it, and yell, 'I'm as mad as
hell and I'm not gonna take this anymore' !".

Ah! You noticed as well! "Radio Grafitti, one 
sentence and one sentence only..."

As in "you're making '800 large' so why are you such
a cheapskate, you fat bastard!"
