Herman records his own version of 'Dry Bones' as a lark on a tape recorder belonging to one of Eddie's friends. Before he knows it, the song, now known as 'That's how Herman was born' is number three in the top forty for two consecutive weeks. Lily starts to worry that Herman's ego is expanding uncontrollably.
