Chet's Shirt


Episode Info

Larry (Larry David) gets into trouble for throwing an apple core into a neighbor's garbage can. Later, Larry picks up Cheryl (Cheryl Hines) at Barbara's (Caroline Aaron). Barbara is still getting over the loss of her husband, Chet, who died suddenly a few months ago, but that doesn't stop Larry from admiring a shirt Chet's wearing in an old photo, and pestering Barbara about where her late husband bought the shirt. She eventually tells him, and Larry decides to go pick up the same shirt. Jeff (Jeff Garlin) convinces Larry to consider investing in a new restaurant with actors Ted Danson and Michael York. Ted admires Larry's new shirt, and invites him and Cheryl to his daughter's birthday party later that week. Danson asks Jeff to dress as the Cowardly Lion from The Wizard of Oz, but Larry is adamant about playing that role himself. Larry meets with the restaurant people, and has some ideas that don't go over very well. Cheryl doesn't understand why Larry wants to invest. He tells her they could hang out there, and he could walk around and talk to people, clarifying, "I don't like talking to people I know, but strangers, I'm okay with." When Cheryl tells Larry that his dentist called to invite them to dinner, Larry decides he'll have to find a new dentist. Blowing off the dentist turns out to be a critical gaffe when a misunderstanding over a gift to Danson leads to a violent episode at his daughter's party.
