Sal brought Howard a special holiday gift this morning; a picture frame for his new office. However, when Howard saw the frame, he pointed out that it contained a picture of Sal, naked, standing by his console with a cart covering his nether region. Despite the photograph, Howard told Sal he'd still put it in his office.
Richard also brought Howard a special picture frame, but wasn't as lucky as Sal with his present, though, as Howard refused to so much as even touch the frame containing a large sample of Richard's DNA. Although Richard insisted it was art, Howard responded that it wasn't. Richard then said that he got Howard other gifts as well, including a pair of gloves and a leather-bound journal, both of which Howard acknowledged he'd actually use.
This led Sal to tell Howard about the additional presents he bought for him too, all of which were books. Howard mentioned that since the topics of the books Sal picked out didn't interest him, he'd hand them out to his fans during the parade tomorrow. Artie added that it was Howard's reaction to Sal's generosity that has always made the gift-giving portion of the show one of his favorites.
