Larry (Larry David) and his wife, Cheryl (Cheryl Hines), are going to bed when Larry warns that her he's expecting a visit from his uncle. He also tells her that his manager, Jeff (Jeff Garlin), wants them both to come to his office the following day. Larry is drifting off when Cheryl asks him, "Why am I the one that always has to initiate sex?" Larry explains that he's always available, and all Cheryl has to do is tap him on the shoulder. Otherwise, he tells her, "I'll just be mauling you all the time." The next day, they find out that Jeff has gotten Cheryl a part in the L.A. production of the hit show, +The Vagina Monologues. Leaving Jeff's office, Larry and Cheryl run into Lucy (Melanie Smith), a beautiful actress whom Larry once dated. She tells Larry she's been thinking about him, and Cheryl feels a bit jealous. Lucy seems jealous, too, when she finds out about Cheryl's role in the play. While Cheryl goes to wait in the car, Larry makes a lunch date with Lucy. That night in bed, when Cheryl "taps" Larry, he explains that he's "tapped out" from pleasuring himself. He admits that he thought briefly of Lucy when he was doing it, and Cheryl disapproves. She makes him promise not to fantasize about his ex-girlfriends. When Larry meets Lucy for lunch the next day, they run into Jeff, who seems overly interested in Lucy. At lunch, Lucy tells Larry that he's the only person she's ever told about her stepfather abusing her, and asks him to accompany her to an incest survivors group meeting. Larry reluctantly agrees. At the meeting, he calls himself "Todd," and feels pressured into telling his own -- purely fictional -- incest tale.
