Howard talked about the fact that he had a Thanksgiving dinner with his daughters on Wednesday, and that he and Beth went out to eat on Thursday.
However, Howard noted that before they went to dinner, he called Richard Christy, who he knew was alone for the holiday, to see if he wanted to eat with them. Howard commented that Richard was planning on eating a frozen turkey dinner to celebrate the day, but that he instead jumped at the chance to dine with him and Beth.
Richard came into the studio and thanked Howard for his kind gesture, and added that he and Beth even brought him pie and cookies from their feast the previous day.
Howard admitted that the one thing he was worried about when it came to asking only Richard to dinner was how Sal would handle the news.
Sal then entered the studio and told Howard that he was driving to his sister's house on Thursday, that his wife was complaining that she wanted to listen to Celine Dion during the trip, and that his kids were crying in the backseat when Richard called him to inform him of his plans.
Sal admitted that, given his situation at the time, Richard's news didn't sit well with him.
