    Anyone else watch it besides me?

    Just an OK episode, but obviously laid the groundwork for the Seinfeld reunion storyline. It seems Larry will start working on that in an attempt to win Cheryl back.

    And it seems LD is going to use Loretta's illness as an excuse to get rid of the Blacks. I hope Leon sticks around in some capacity.

    Also, great guest turn by Catherine O'Hara. And any I like any episode with lots of Marty Funkhauser.

    Marty is such a great character. And they can't get rid of Leon. Leon rules.

    Last night's ep was one of the best in the series, for my money.

    I've watched every season. So far this season while the bits are very funny it seems like Larry is trying too hard and the bits seem a bit forced.

    In past seasons stuff that happened seemed more plausible as out on the edge as it is.

    You can't make an open gesture to a Funkhouser.

    Empty gesture.

    Jeff Garlin's orgasm noises will haunt me in my dreams. "Come on, fat boy!"

    Re: the wheelchair episode...

    Are we really to believe that Larry, oblivious as he is, would make a chopsticks reference about the newly adopted kid of his friends? C'mon, this is way forced, not just an observation of accepted-yet-dumb everyday behavior.

    And the Rosie O'Donnell-kicked-his-ass stuff? Must be setting up something later in the season, because it was a waste of time.

    There's been some good stuff this season, but also this sort of stuff where you can seem them sweating for awkward opportunities.

    Exactly-- in previous seasons things were obnoxious and funny but did not seemed forced.

    The Chop Stix example is perfect.

    I did think that Larry was over-the-top in his meanness in this episode. Usually, he gets in trouble by being really self-centered. This time he was just being a jerk.

    I know it's wrong, but when Larry tells Denise her name is "Denise Handicap" on his phone, I couldn't stop laughing. Shit, I'm still laughing.
