Larry joins a restaurant venture with a group of investors, among them are Ted Danson and Michael York.
It is not long into the series though that we realize that Larry David is his own worst enemy.
He is accused of having an adultery-implying erection because of his extremely baggy trousers that bunch up when he sits down; feuding with a shoe salesman; getting blamed for a newspaper typo after submitting an obituary for Cheryl's aunt; reacting offensively to drinking from his friend's mother's glass; and unintentionally causing someone to believe that his uncle is an incestuous pedophile.
After being kicked out of his own house, Larry goes to Jeff's house only to be kicked out again for supposedly harassing Jeff's mother.
Jeff offers Cheryl a role in The Vagina Monologues; Larry runs into an old girlfriend (Melanie Smith) who asks him to go to an incest survivors group with her—whose members include, the director of the show (Laraine Newman).
In the HBO special upon which the series was based, Larry approaches HBO about having his own hour-long HBO special.
