Please share your opinions about the incident in this thread.
One, two, thank, you
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.
Mooose spends more on blow on a Monday morning.
Nothing planned for the show. Wigward making a mountain out of a mole hill.
It did spawn one of my favorite songs ever.
to someone that is a multimillionaire that is like me getting a $40 bottle of wine instead of a $16 at a restaurant...
when going out on a owners tab, I never get the house vodka!
i was more amused by the part leading up to that where theyre discussing how Benjy waltzed in 30 minutes late all sweaty
You know the whorse gets that primo unadulterated nasal candy. What ashame, I'm sure the only person who gets to sniff it off howies cawk is ralphie
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.
also, whats the point of having a fuckton of money if you cant enjoy yourselves??? I don't make a ton, but when I go out for drinks/dinner I don't look at the prices... you gotta enjoy yourself
howard makes $40,000 an hour... fuck him.
not to defend him, but if you remember, a caller called him on that to shut up about the price and I think Howard told the guy to read between the lines and he's doing a show. I think the guy was named Alberto or Ricardo. Then the guy called out Robin for being a vegan but drinking wine.
I have to politely disagree here...An 800$ 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....
He spent 10 million on a fucking closet... fuck him!
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?
He purse under his wives arm is more than I pay for rent for a year... he's cheap in all the wrong places...
he told her to pick it out, and commented that had it been on her bill she would have done the same exact thing...
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.
