Howard again complained about the timing of Richard's wedding and--when Richard came in to defend himself--Richard's shocking weight loss, so Richard laughed: "I can't win! I [also] looked horrible when I was fat. I don't think there's a good look for me."
Howard repeated his desire to do send a wedding gift in his stead: "I love you. I really wish you a long and happy marriage. But I don't want to go."
Robin reminded Howard that he didn't owe anyone anything: "The whole problem with your premise is that you have to prove your love."
Howard laughed: "How about I burn myself? How about that?"
Richard passed on a cash gift, saying he'd rather Howard just play some rejected prank calls, but Howard drew a line, refusing to compromise his show's integrity: "No way."
