    Classic episode, it had it all, classic misunderstandings, a great gueststar and a bit of hanky panky! The opening scene with the selaciiously hot Gina Gershon was great, Larry's finally gonna get his 10th anniversary present! It was interesting to see the Rabbi give his blessing and his reasoning. The 'Survivor' bit was excellent, it was great to see Colby defend his 'Survivor' experience against a Holocaust Survior, "We didn't have toilet paper, we had mosquitoes!" (Larry pushes the envelope again!). It was funny how Larry didn't want to vow eternal love in the ceremony, he thought he could have eternity to play around! Hop ehe has better luck than at the hotel!moreless

    • When the earthquake hits, Anna is in bed with her headscarf and a sheet at her feet. When the camera switches to a side view, the sheet has moved and the headscarf has disappeared entirely.

    • The rabbi fails to mention two things about the story from Scripture: (1) laying with a handmaiden was common practice for those who could not conceive, and (2) God later condemned Sarah and Abram for not having enough faith in Him to trust that they would eventually conceive.
