  • Episode Description
  • One of Hillary's friends gets breast implants, so now, Hillary wants to get implants, too. However, both Dave and Vicky won't let her do it, as Dave tells Hillary that it's what's on the inside that matters, not appearance. His advice is then tested when he meets Larry's new, overweight, unattractive girlfriend, Marla. Now, he'll have to figure out how to tell Larry that he can do better without going against what he told Hillary earlier.moreless

  • Quotes (17)

    • Dave: At no time in history has a culture been so focused on how they look as we are today. Between the diets, the liposuction, Botox, LASIKS, it's crazy, and who's responsible? The media, and God bless 'em. I mean, who wants to look at fat, ugly people?

    • Dave: Larry. Larry: What? Dave: Look, I'm glad you borrowed it, but give it back. Larry: Give what back? Dave: You know. I seem to be missing a certain magazine. My Penthouse. Larry: You have Penthouse?

    • Dave: Then why are you laying around here on a Saturday afternoon? Larry: I don't know. Dave: Just tell me -- what's bothering you? Larry: I don't have a girlfriend. Dave: That's great! Larry: Okay, dad. Thanks for making me feel better.

    • Dave: (To Larry) Look here's the thing. I sell insurance for a living, okay? The one thing in the world nobody ever wants to buy, but with the right words and some scare tactics, I make it happen. I'm sure there's some girl you can do that to.

    • Dave: (Sees Hillary looking at his Penthouse magazine) What the hell are you doing? That's a men's magazine for men. Oh, God. Don't tell me you're going Rosie O'Donnell on me. Hillary: Relax, I'm just looking at the boobs. Dave: Not making me feel better.
