Howie Mandel Brings a Friend Who Cost Leno More than $1,300 on a Dinner (VIDEO)

Howie Mandel, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Most people are pretty excited to meet celebrities. Not so Howie Mandel's friend on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). It might have been a little less nerve-wracking had Mandel not reminded Jay Leno how the two had previously "met."

Mandel's friend was backed into by a woman, who turned out to be Leno's wife. She told him that her husband usually takes care of everything, at which point Leno suddenly remembered the story.

He told the guy, "I'll pay to fix your car. We'll get it done right. Go have a nice dinner on me. Take a date, your girlfriend or whatever."

Well, the guy didn't have a girlfriend but he did meet someone and took her to the restaurant on Jay's tab, basically. Mandel didn't specify if the girl knew Leno was footing the bill, but we suspect she did based on what she immediately started ordering.

At the end of the meal, the restaurant wouldn't even let the guy see the bill. But Leno saw it: "$1,325!" he said. "The damage to the car was $900."

Okay, now that Leno definitely remembers this guy, let's bring him out. Leno's a pretty imposing figure of a man, as well, but he laughed it off and gave the guy a hug. Still, we imagine it was a pretty tense moment for the poor guy.

Did he, we wonder, get a second date? Or did she dump him when she learned that Leno was only paying for the first one?
