he news? Note: Howard only brought it up one time after Sam's announcement and if you re-listen to his comments, he more-so asks his famous question to Robin "What is that?" when discussing Sam's oblivious laughing during a serious interview. Fast forward to the set up caller that blatantly said "I thought he might give some to Beth's charity".... Howard then explained to her that not only is Beth involved but so am I. In other words, if Sam gave to Beth, it would be like giving to Howard too. Just re-listen to the call and note how everything was said on cue and how Howard was able to inform the caller Beth's needs for 7 million dollars. It's really pretty dag-gum grosse. My point is that Howard took her call the day after finding out Sam was donating all his money to charity.
