Mather and Howard met at the Beverly Center not some mall in the valley. I was walking through the mall with my dog (I have no idea why I had my dog in the mall) and Howard was walking towards us and I said "hi" to Howard and introduced the two. Mather remembers because he was thinking "That was the dude from Austin Stories." Howard was in a hurry and may not even remember it. I think he was going to a movie and running late or maybe just pretending to be in a hurry.
