Literally it means to give you a bar of soap in addition to whatever else is on offer. But this term could have other transferred meanings that are not deducible without the context.

I believe Peter Parker is covered in filth at the time Jameson says that. "Throw in" in this case means "add for free."

Then again, I'm not much of a Spidey fanatic.
