2. Larry vs. His Therapist
“The Thong”: Season 2, Episode 5
Some things you just can’t un-see.
A lovely day at the beach is marred for Larry when he sees his therapist sporting a thong bathing suit. At the same time, Larry has to fend off a request from Rob Reiner to help out with a benefit for “Groat’s Syndrome.” As hard as it is for Larry to get the image of his scantily-clad therapist out of his head, he finds it’s even harder to break up with his stubborn therapist.
3. Larry vs. the Judy Doll
“The Doll”: Season 2, Episode 7
Larry David: doll decapitator.
Strictly speaking, Larry is not a hairdresser by trade. But when the daughter of a TV exec asks him to give her “Judy Doll” a haircut, he can’t resist. When the little girl realizes Judy’s hair won’t grow back, she throws a tantrum that sends Larry and Jeff running around town for a replacement Judy Doll head.
4. Larry vs. the LA Lakers
“Shaq”: Season 2, Episode 8
Think twice before you stretch your legs.
It’s no secret that despite living in LA, Larry is a true New Yorker at heart. He certainly doesn’t win any West Coast love after accidentally tripping Shaquille O’Neal while sitting courtside at a Lakers game. Assuming he’s working to take down his rival team, it doesn’t take long for the Staples Center? to turn on Larry.
