Ever find yourself wondering how LD has been hooking up with all these good-looking broads this season? Well, today we finally got our answer. Like any other man, he
lies withholds the truth.
Sitting next to an attractive blonde on his plane ride to NY (finally!), Larry is given the thumbs up by the Greens to game the broad. He bungles it spectacularly — promising “to do better next time”. Which he does, in typical Larry David fashion. After heading to the bathroom in coach, Larry trips over his own shoelaces and falls on top of a belligerent air rager. Larry is instantly recognized as a hero and, well, he doesn’t correct them. Would you?
Of course, everyone’s got their own definition of a hero and for Jeff it means grabbing your lunch off the line while your eavesdropping waiter is too busy schmoozing with comedian extraordinaire, Ricky Gervais.
This is where the episode mines most of its comedy, as it pits the ultra-sensitive to social rules Larry David against the charming but completely oblivious to accepted behavior Ricky Gervais. To watch these two assholes go at it, it’s simply poetry. The improvised banter, the talking over one another, and the truly outrageous behavior these two partake in, it’s priceless.
