  • It was good...

    Larry argues with Susie and Richard Lewis over condolences, confronts a pair of "sample abusers" at an ice-cream parlor and a perfumery, and is accused of pinching flowers by Marty Funkhouser. This episode was really funny but it was not as good as the prevous two episodes of the gem of a show,I felt sorry for Funkhouser in this episode, but also I like the way we have seen more of the character this season I always wanted to see more of him because he is great, I'm still liking the the new faamily, I love the way Larry is getting called LD, I always laugh at that.moreless
  • fantastic show well acted and very humourous

    the best thing about this show is its not like any other show...typical situations are twisted into being think larry would never take flowers from a place like that....but to do it three times then have orphan funkmeir find out was hilarious i agree orphan at that age!

    the swearing is needed for this excellent show larry still makes me laugh if only brit semi scripted comedy was this funny sample stealing ive seen it so many times timewasters who always go for the basic stuff after trying it all i was laughing at the rudeness and the queue argument was spot on heres to series 7 david go on!moreless

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Larry: You don't need to tell me how to apologize to people. I've been apologizing to people since I'm six years old on a daily basis. I pretty much have it down.

    • Larry: On the days I want sex I'm a lot nicer.
      Jeff: Oh, really?
      Larry: Oh, yeah. I'll be nice the whole day. And then we'll have sex and then I'll just go back to being the way I am.

    • Jeff: I shouldn't be eating ice cream.
      Larry: No, you shouldn't.

    • Marty: I'm an orphan, okay?
      Larry: You're a what?
      Marty: I'm an orphan.
      Larry: Orphan?
      Marty: Yeah, an orphan.
      Larry: You're a little too old to be an orphan.
      Marty: No, if you don't have parents you're an orphan.
      Larry: Oh, you could be 70 and be an orphan?
      Marty: You can be 100 and be an orphan!

    • Larry: (on confronting a sample abuser) Don't abuse your sampling privileges. She abused the sampling privilege. And you know what else?
      Cheryl: What?
      Larry: I was also looking out for the counterperson, as well.
      Cheryl: If she had a problem with that woman, don't you think she would have said, "Excuse me, ma'am"?
      Larry: No, no, 'cause she's always told 'the customer is right,' and in fact, the customer is usually a moron and an asshole.

    • Marty: Jogging's the best thing for me.
      Larry: So mourners exercise? I didn't know that.
      Marty: I don't know if mourners exercise, it's just good for me.

    • Marty: (to Larry) If you weren't my best friend I would take my bare hands and pop your head off your neck.
      Larry: (laughs) He's not my best friend.

    • Loretta: I want them kids in that school.
      Larry: I'm gonna rectify it. I'm a great rectifier. That's what I do. I break down, I rectify.

    • Loretta: You know something, Larry, you should've mind your business on this one though.
      Larry: She was breaking the rules. She wasn't following the rules of society.
      Cheryl: What rules?
      Larry: The unwritten rules that we have as we go about our day.

    • Jeff: (to Larry) Oh, you know what? You have ruined my life. You have ruined my life! (points to an irate Susie) I have to live with this now!
      Susie: Oh, you bet he does.
      Jeff: Oh, you hear that?! I am fucked, and you fucked me—hard!!

    • Larry: You can't ask a mourner for fifty dollars.

  • NOTES (2)


    • Larry jokingly refers to Marty as "Little Orphan Funkhouser", playing off of Harold Gray's comic creation Little Orphan Annie.
