Marco is one of Bob and Larry's TV friends. According to Bob, the other day, he was walking home from his bowling league when he bumped into Marco. Now, Marco had a question for both Bob and Larry.

In the episode Sumo of the Opera, Larry had to go to a toy drive. However, he ends up getting extremely lost, runs out of cash and is then stuck on a payphone at the end of the subway line.
