Here's comedian Patton Oswalt crashing a chat with Harlan Ellison at Cinefamily. The brilliant, irascible sci-fi writer known for his rants (our favorite: "Pay the Writer") is there to discuss the limited-edition re-release of The Glass Teat, his collected writings on television.

When Oswalt hijacks the interview, it veers to topics like his attempt to take his pal Ellison, a curmudgeon par excellence, to the fancy steakhouse Jar. Unsurprisingly, Ellison finds something to complain about. [Video after the jump.]

"I didn't know I could just take you to Red Lobster," Oswalt says. "I didn't know you were such a cheap date."

"I put out for Wendy's," Ellison retorts.

(Listen for the bonus "Leiningen Versus the Ants" reference.)
