    Typical Robin passive aggressive nonsense.

    She's going to make Howard part with his money one way or another. Advising him to marry Beth, ordering the wine...all part of her plan. She hates Howard for not loving her.

    It's just a stupid bullshitfiller story.

    Nothing planned for the show. Wigward making a mountain out of a mole hill.

    Great thread and this was one of my favorite segments, because there were so many storyline arcs going on. 1) Artie missed the event as he had his own weekend drama. 2) Benji showing up late and his lack of decorum. 3) Robin being insulted on the air by the cost of the wine. 4) Ralph subsequently bashing Robin, saying she should know better. It was one of those segments that I could list to every now and again because the buildup was very good. I just liked how Benji orders the fish dinner and says he's still working on it when the waiter comes, but doesn't eat half of it when Howard's trying to get out of there. I may need to listen to that now.

    not to defend him, but if you remember, a caller called him on that to shut up about the price and I think Howard told the guy to read between the lines and he's doing a show. I think the guy was named Alberto or Ricardo. Then the guy called out Robin for being a vegan but drinking wine.

    I have to politely disagree here...An 800$ bottle of wine is expensive no matter how much money you make. If you're a multi millionaire can you afford it? Absolutely-you can buy it all night. But that is a good chunk of change no matter who you are. If you enjoy expensive wines then you happily shell out close to a grand for a bottle every night. But you're aware that you're spending that much when you do. Even if you're gracious about it. And Howard just isn't that guy (and Robin of all people knows that)
    I'm not disputing whether or not Howard is a cheap ass. He most definitely is lol. But 800$ is a lot of money for a bottle of liquid no matter how much money you have.

    If you are at a fancy NYC restaurant what do you expect to pay??? And I disagree, $800 is not expensive when you are making $40,000 an hour....

    Certainly Howard can afford it, but it is a rather extreme price ... no matter who it is, it's rude to be cavalier with others people's money, isn't it? :dontknow:

    These people are rich in a way we could never imagine... $800 is unimaginable to us on a bottle of wine.. but to them it is the reg.

    I thought it was funny that you could tell that it kind of bothered Howard even though he was making light of it. Its like 10 minutes of work for him and it seemed to get under his skin and he just covered it up in passive aggressive comedy.

    I'm impressed you guys remember so many of the details and especially their timelines. :toke:
