Sal came in to explain his reasons for attacking Ross Zapin yesterday: "It's a personality thing...I feel that he belittles me."
Howard speculated that Ross was dismissive to Sal, which Sal confirmed: "That's basically what it comes down to." Howard explained: "You think he just gets along with the people he has to get along with." Sal repeated his complaints with Ross' allegedly-rank breath: "If my breath smells like shit, you better believe I'd want someone to tell me...bad is an understatement. It's like the scrapings of a bottom of a dumpster." Sal followed-up with a qualifier: "But I don't want to put him down."
Artie countered that he had been to many events with Ross and had never smelled anything bad.
