Yeah, so how do you guys

l didn't know how to get in touch.

Why would you do that?
You were thinking of this woman Lucy

That's fair, that's completely legitimate.
-Don't drink it all at once.
-No, l won't.
-She was in the tornado.
-l did an asteroid.
You're just a big bowl of wrong.
and l told you about my stepfather,
and, what happened?
Are you sure that you qualify with your
stepfather? ls that considered incest?
l want you to be comfortable,
l want you to be okay, so....
-So, what's going on?
Just representation stuff.
We have total anonymity here.
Good. On that note, if you'd like to share.
and the coconut and the cherries.

''And, wow, l'm so hot...
''and she tells me to always know
how to give myself pleasure...
He was so funny, by the way.
You have nothing to be worried about.
lt's just kind of personal.
Don't worry. l would never betray you.
That's horrible, l had no idea.

Larry gets himself in trouble, when he makes a racist-like comment to Richard's friend. Also, Larry inadvertently loses Cheryl's prescription note.
Fuck, l can't. We're doing something early.
l'm sorry. l beg your pardon, what?
Do you see my point?
l was just trying to be affable.
-l was with Richard Lewis...
l made a mistake.
lt was a stupid thing to say.
-Let's try something here.
-What are you doing?
My wife's itching, you know....
Why, because all those people
are still waiting?
lf you're not in a hurry
to get somewhere, why not?
-You know what?
'Cause we had a really nice meeting.
You said my resume looked great...
Why do you have a problem
giving somebody like me a job?
but, somehow, Elaine or Jerry
never had any black girlfriends.
l just hope you have a very nice dinner.
Thank you, Mr. Larry David.
Nice to see you. How you doing?
You guys just sitting down?
l think l gave the maitre d' the prescription.
-They were folded up, they felt alike!
-Didn't he look at it?
lf you call his machine,
it'll tell you you can't page him.
''unless they were burned in a fire...
You'll find it in a trash can,
right through those double doors.
-You want me to get in the can?
-lf that's what it takes, Larry, l guess, yeah.
l could call him and apologize.
He could phone in the prescription for us.
lt's this dermatitis and it's spreading

-is your friend from.... The dermatologist.
-The guy from today? Justin?
Honey, baby, l'm on the phone.
She's sick and you're not, how's that?
He really feels horrible about it,
but his wife has this.... What's it called?
-You'll do that?
-Of course, are you kidding?
-Did you hear that?
-Yeah, l did hear it.
-''Daddy, l'm not so stupid!''
That's okay, the best laid plans
always will change...
-Hi, how you doing?
-Mrs. David, a pleasure to meet you.
Larry, this is Professor Roget
from Caltech Physics.

My advice to you, go back, because....
We're very interested
in hearing what you have to say.
He's in very good shape, this man,
by the way. Very good shape.
''You let him work on you even with
the whole affirmative action thing?''
l think we should be sleeping on the street,
eating crumbs, and we should be that way...
l'm gonna call him. l'm gonna page him.

When Cheryl's aunt dies, Larry is left in charge of the obituary. But when the newspaper accidentally places "beloved c*nt" instead of beloved aunt, things take an expected turn for the worse.
We never had this conversation, by the way.
-He's been very quiet for several days.
-That's so sweet.
l don't even like to drive.
And l don't like walking.
-That'd be really sweet.
-l'll write it myself.
4:00 is the deadline.
l let my wife know before l go anywhere.
Let's do this obituary thing, okay?
You have a pad?
-Did very well.
-Yeah, that's unusual.
She's been on the phone all morning
with her boyfriend...
l'm not contributing anything.

He requested me to do five minutes.
-No, don't you bother, l've got the car.
-You don't even know where it is.
-These are pretty good.
Did he say anything to you?
Oh, God, all right,
l'm gonna be back in 20 minutes.
-For my friend's mother.
-Do they sell all that in the same store?
-No, l don't believe they do.
ls that in the same store as the scissor

Excuse me for a second.
-What is the matter with you?
-He's a bad guy, l was doing you a favor!
You could probably go to a stationery store.
-They have the paper.
-...would they wrap it for me?
-Hi! Look who's here.
-Look at those.
lsn't that nice? How did the obit go?
Oh, God, Larry.

All right, look, set the alarm.
Do you know how to set the alarm?

Jeff gets a new car, and when Larry takes it for a spin, a commercial comes on the radio for AAMCO, with a noise sounding much like a car horn from behind. Upon hearing this, Larry curses the man behind him, prompting the man to rear-end Jeff's brand new car. Also, Larry and Cheryl hold a dinner party.
Do me a favor, will you?
to have people over your house
and serve them food and talk to them?
-We'll make a bet and see.
-You already decided you won't.
Until l moved to Los Angeles, l was never
in the same room as a caterer. Ever, once.
What is it? Did l do something?
l didn't know that congratulations
were in order when you get a new car.
''Double A, beep, beep, M-C-O.''
Everyone's heard that commercial.

-They're moving to, what, Downey?
Larry, you gotta take

-My friend got this '57 Chevy.
-My God, that's terrible.
-Now the car's making a terrible noise.
-l like you, Larry. l like your show, too.
-Dig in, you heard the man!
-Have yourself a good time, all right?
-May l start with my salad now?
So you're moving to Covina?
-Okay, l'll make a note of that.
-l want some Cohens, some Bernsteins...

And guess what?
l just don't like....
There's no taste to that lndian thing.
I wanna talk to you about it.
I'll be in my office, say, around 12..30.
Either just say, ''Call me back,''
or tell me why you're feeling weird.
And l look over, and l see Maggie....
But now they think
l don't want them staying in the guesthouse.
-What do you make of that?
-l don't know.
-This is stealing.

Hi, Debbie, it's Cheryl David from last night.
Larry's gonna come over and pick it up.

-Sorry about that, there you go.
Thank you, Carmel.
Did you wanna check on the buns out back?

Hoping to bury an unsightly telephone wire dangling over their yard, Larry and Cheryl befriend a pair of bizarre neighbors who must approve the burial. The husband is an incompetent lawyer but a big Seinfeld fan, so to appease him Larry arranges to
have Julia Louis-Dreyfuss come for a visit. But when the actress arrives, the lawyer is missing; he's been hired to defend Jeff in a case involving a destructive kid Jeff sponsored for a Fresh Air Fund camp. At Larry's house, Julia ends up buying a bracelet from the lawyer's wife -- the same kind Larry wanted in episode 4 -- only to later accuse Larry of stealing it after he buys a similar one for Cheryl.
l'm finally in the house
that Jerry Seinfeld built.
Let the machine get it, it's okay.
-l'm a lawyer.
-He thinks she's the most talented actress.
lt's so hard to get anything
Yeah, we'll do that on the way out.
-What kind of person is that?
-He's a fan.
l've done so much work
trying to get this removed--
-l should call Jeff and tell him about this.
Susie, it's Larry. Did l wake you?
Susie was pretty pissed off.
She's really upset.
You've got me some expensive idiot lawyer,
so you can have your wire dropped down.
The guy's a total prick, he'll do a good job,
believe me. Pricks are good.
He got kicked out of the camp,
he wants to stay at my house.
-That l would love to do.
-l would love to do that.
-Are you by yourself?
-No, l'm with Julia.
l've got a better idea. Hey, brainstorm.
This is just so outrageous.
Do you know this woman?
Okay, just let me get.... Okay.
You know, l've got to tell you,
l don't have any fucking idea.
-He's still here.
-He's still there?
-What's going on?
-This is so unusual.
l've never turned a piece of jewelry
around this fast.
-l'm not asking her again, that's it.
-Larry, do you not even care about me?
That you write your ideas down on?
l don't know where that is.
-What time is the cut-off?
-10:00. 10 minutes before the cut-off.
Most people have a 10:00 or 10:30 cut-off.
-l made a phone call in that office.
-ln my office?
Bobby, what are you doing? lt's so late.
Go on upstairs--
-l gotta tell him about this.
-What's the cut-off on New York?
'Cause you're a fat, fucking asshole,

Let me tell you something, Larry.
Jeff's computer golf game is gone!
You're going to get him?
Look at you, you're pathetic.

-You have a 10:00 cut-off, okay.
-Did he take it?

Don't worry, Jeff set up another meeting.
You know what? Quite frankly,

Cheryl and Larry get into a fight after she returns from a trip and he's too distracted by a game on TV to greet her properly. To make peace, Larry decides to buy her a bracelet at a jewelry store, but isn't allowed in because of his shabby clothes.
After bribing a guy to use his cell phone, Larry calls pal Richard Lewis, who arrives to help--except that the store is now closed for lunch. The pair end up helping a blind man move into his apartment, the jewelry store closes for the night, and Richard ends up coveting the same bracelet that Larry wants to buy.
