Episode Recap

Larry gives simplistic, 'just say no' type answers to daughter Diane's questions about how to deal with her boyfriend putting pressure on her to go all the way.

Meanwhile, at the radio station Morgan suggests that Larry "spice up" his bland talk show to improve ratings.

Diane calls into his talk show under an assumed name to get her father's unbiased opinion. Instead, she gets even worse "spiced up" advice which Larry regrets giving when he figures out his caller's true identity.
