3 episodes... From Season 2-the one where Larry can't believe that the Jewish man who is marrying Cheryl's sister is converting to Christianity. And,Richard Lewis accuses Larry of stealing the outgoing message of his answering machine, and Larry accuses several passengers of stealing his airline tickets.

Then from Season 1-Where On his way to the drug store to fill a prescription for his wife's itchy skin condition, Larry meets with Richard Lewis, who insists that he and Cheryl come by for coffee after dinner so Larry can make up with Richard's girlfriend. The two then run into a black dermatologist friend of Richard's, whom Larry promptly offends with a tasteless affirmative-action joke. Shocked, Larry forgets to go to the drug store. Later, he loses Cheryl's prescription by giving it to a restaurant maitre 'd instead of a twenty-dollar bill. Now he's forced to try to get a new one from the dermatologist he insulted earlier.

And also from Season 1-Larry in the Group session.

These are among the funniest comedy shows ever broadcast on television.

My all time favorite was a season closer - when they open the restaurant was being opened, with an open kitchen and the chef with Turrets......

"Crazy-Eyez Killah" and the "doll-head" one. Hell, they're all hilarious. Tremendous show. I hope Larry's got a few more seasons up his sleeve.

One of my favorite characters on that show...or anywhere....is Suzie. She has an unbelievably quick, sharp and filthy tongue....a real classic. I love her retort to what she thought was an insult hurled her way by Larry's wife in that episode...."You Car Wash C___!" I laughed myself sick!

She also gives it to Larry pretty good..."You Four-Eyed F___!"

I saw on the Best Damn Sports Show period, the actor that plays Larry's agent (his name escapes me presently) said that the show is entirely extemperaneous except for a basic plot...but all dialogue is made up right there on the spot...genius.

"Excuse me...are you jewish?
"Do you wanna check my p-n-s?"

"Look at that...he's a bra sniffing dog!"
"What do you mean I can't bring my water in the theater? I have a medical condition!"

and yeah, every scene is adlibed with larry giving a basic idea of the scene to the cast members before each scene. on disc 2 of season 3 the extra goodies is a sitdown i believe from the sundance film festival with larry, jeff, suzie, richard lewis and 3 or 4 of the writers. i think jeff again is the guy who says that its all adlibbed. one of my favorite things from that sitdown is when someone asks suzie if she's really the way she is on the show in real life as well. her response was something like..."jeff and i go to knicks games all the time and there's always someone who recognizes me and says 'hey, call me a **** !'......im not like this in real life but.....i always oblige." great show..."hey larry, why dont you take your $450 million dollars and go buy some more shrimp!!"

This is my favourite television show as well...
but so far this season has been a disappoint-
ment. If it doesn't improve, this will be the
first `CURB' that I won't buy on DVD.
Still a lot better than most, however!
