Eri misread "bed" as "pet" for the first mail. Moving on to the opening talk, sitting on the sofa of her living room is the calmest place in her house for Gaki-san. She enjoys playing games, watching television programs and using her mobile phone on the sofa. According to Eri, the sofa in her house is "broken." They didn't get a replacement immediately. Instead, Eri and her family sat on futon until they saw some cheap zaisus which are what they are using for now. Eri places the zaisu on a hot carpet, behind a desk and she likes the warmth of the carpet in between the zaisu and desk. As Gaki-san was wondering about how one can feel calm in a toilet (the listener who sent in the mail said his calmest place is the toilet), Eri told her "You will feel calm. There's no one but yourself in there." Eri added that she (still) likes narrow places and to be in a secret place so that no one can scold her.

The surreal joke the listener made in his mail got Gaki-san and Eri laughing. The girls gave one another "titles." Gaki-san suggested "random goofy girl" and "goofy happy yaro" (Yaro means rascal) for Eri. In case you're wondering, the "happy yaro" title is the same joke they made in this episode. Eri titled Gaki-san "noisy girl." Gaki-san doesn't want to be called that by Eri but she admits that she is noisier than Eri. Both Gaki-san and Eri can be really loud when their "loud switch" is turned on. However, Gaki-san's loud laughter can be really annoying. Eri often tells Gaki-san to not laugh in such an exaggerated manner because they aren't on TV and she doesn't have to react to them like the way they have to on TV shows. Despite Gaki-san's refusal to accept the title, Eri is still going with "noisy girl" for Gaki-san.
A listener asked Gaki-san and Eri how many new year's card they are planning to prepare. The 2 girls decided to answer at the same time and again, their answers matched. The answer is zero. Gaki-san knows that it isn't a good habit to not write them. She does feel tempted to prepare the cards when she sees the new year related items like new year stickers. Even though they don't send out new year's cards, they do send people their new year greetings, through mobile phone's mails. Not only are they cute, there are postcard templates that can be used. They enjoyed preparing new year's cards when they were younger though. Gaki-san stumbled a little on her words and Eri immediately jumped on her mistake, twice.
Eri knows that she has a habit of blinking continuously but it isn't as bad as the past now. Both of them agreed that the normal face Koharu makes looks funny. Koharu has the habit of making a funny face unknowingly when in a serious discussion.

Gaki-san and Eri don't mind what listeners are doing when they are listening to the radio show. They are happy as long as the listeners listen to the radio show.
Eri: For me...(mumbles)
Eri: Sunny side up eggs
Gaki-san finds slide phones good. Eri has used a slide phone in the past and wonders what's good about it. Gaki-san thinks that slide phones look cute and are convenient. One doesn't have to flip it open to use the phone. Eri, on the other hand, doesn't like the design slide phones. Also, as slide phones are generally smaller in size than flip phones, they look good with the phone straps. Gaki-san goes more for the appearance of her phone than function. She used a slide phone too in the past, but changed to a flip open phone and then she changed back to a slide phone again recently. Now that she is back with a slide phone, she is more for slide phones and has decided to stick to slide phones. Before Gaki-san bought her current phone, she went to look at mobile phones together with Eri after a FIVE STARS Monday recording. The next day when Eri met Gaki-san, Gaki-san showed the Eri her new phone. Her speed in buying a mobile phone surprised Eri. According to Gaki-san, she is pretty fastidious about her mobile phone. With that, Gaki-san gave 5 stars to slide phones.
Eri's selection: GReeeeN - SetsunaAlthough they were travelling in a taxi on the way to the studio, Eri kept singing "Setsuna" despite the presence of a stranger (the taxi driver).
