Sal & Richard came in to say that Robin had convinced them to return to the studio. Sal requested that Robin be their "moderator," so Howard begrudgingly obliged. Sal then said he and Artie were very passionate about their work, so when someone insults that work, they tend to lash out. Sal apologized for insulting Artie's resume, and Richard said that while Artie's comments sometimes hurt, they'll just deal with it from now on.
Howard asked how Sal making fun of Gary's work was different than Artie making fun of Sal's work, but Sal claimed it was "different." Artie said Richard and Sal were asking him to edit himself, so Richard replied that he didn't want Artie to censor himself, just be aware that his statements hurt. Sal then apologized to Artie but still maintained that "Beer League" was "OK" – and not as good as his own film, "Robin's Meats & Vegetables."
