  • Creating "New Larry" temporarily woos Cheryl

    While trying to win back his wife, Larry pits his therapist against Cheryl and her therapist. Lies, deception and earnestness reveal the "New Larry" as a sham and ruin the life of the terrible-advice-giving Dr. Bright.
    This CYE episode gets most of its laughs from the manner in which Larry rules absolutely over his therapist eventually causing his tragi-comic demise. Larry has no sympathy (of course) and displays his egocentricity like never before.
    Tightly woven, this script is the best of the season to date and uses some great visuals to nail down "The Therapist" as a quintessential episode. Larry's attempt to convince Cheryl that he is truly a new Larry is funny on a raw level since it is clear to the audience that he has done little but tuck in his shirt and put on nice shoes. We see Cheryl wanting to believe him and therefore know there is hope for their marriage after all.
