Lisa G reported that Sal has been invited to write jokes for an upcoming Friar's Club Roast of Quentin Tarantino--but wouldn't be paid.
Howard demanded to know why he--Sal's employer--had to pay for Sal's work, while the Friar's Club can get it for free, so Sal came in to explain: "They offered to pay me, but I turned it down. I figured it would be a nice gesture."
Howard was confused: "Is there any charity involved, at least?"
Sal said yes.
