Finkelstein looks around and asks, "So, who is going to tell his wife"?
They draw straws. Goldberg picks the short one.
They tell him to use good judgment, be discreet and be gentle. Don't make a bad situation any worse.
"Discreet"? he asked. "I'll be the most discreet person you will ever meet. Discretion is my middle name. Just leave it to me."
So, Goldberg goes over to the Meyerwitz apartment and knocks on the door.
The wife answers and asks what he wants. Goldberg declares, "Your husband just lost $500 and is afraid to come home."
"Tell him to drop dead!" she yells.
"I'll go tell him," says Goldberg.
