Gary reported that Sal had shat on a toilet seat at the local parking garage, and Sal came in to deny everything: "I hate to break it to you, I never took a shit in there. I will take a lie detector test."
Gary asked why he'd taken so long in the bathroom, so Sal explained: "I was violently washing my hands. That's what I do. I wash my hands a lot...I'm becoming a little bit of a germaphobe."
Gary just repeated the facts: "He went in there and there was shit all over after."
While he was in the studio, Howard again took notice of Sal's curiously-dark beard. Sal confessed that he hadn't dyed it, but he had treated it: "I applied a hair powder to it."
Sal said it was a simple process--he sprays a powder on a hairbrush--but Howard thought it might be too strong: "I've never seen hair that black."
Sal agreed: "It looks like I rubbed a piece of charcoal on my face."
