  • Like a classic Seinfeld episode with seemingly unrelated events coming together in classic CURB fashion.

    8.5
    One of my all time favorite CURB moments is in this episode when Susie and Cheryl confront Larry about trying on her bra. The 2 minute scene makes me tear up everytime I see it. Especially the part where Susie asks Larry what all the "mincing around" was about. Larry responds with something to the affect of wanting to see what it would be like to do housework while having breasts. Then Susie asks, "Who does housework like this? (while holding her boobs and twirling) . It is simply classic.



    Between that and all the chaos going in in this episode, it makes it a series classic.



    Worth viewing for that scene alone.moreless
  • he spoils your fantasy

    9.7
    in \"thor\" from season two, larry gets revenge on a pro wrestler by telling the wrestler\'s children that wrestling is staged. when jeff and suzie\'s kid learns there is no tooth fairy one of larry\'s big recurring themes comes back for just a second, the desctruction of illusions. Larry sometimes reminds me of a jewish phillip marlowe with no game. He stumbles around in kind of a confused state, but he\'s always on the quest for truth, exposing lies or destroying fantasies.



    The funny thing is that second plotline has to do with larry creating a fantasy of being a good jew by having the (whatever it\'s called) nailed above the front door to decieve his father.



    which makes him a bit of a hypocrite.



    but the passion of the christ remake climax was too wonderful for words.moreless
