Cheryl (Cheryl Hines) is upset with Susie (Susie Essman) because she's canceled their lunch date again, claiming she had to go to the dentist. Larry (Larry David) catches TV restaurant critic Andy Portico (Paul Wilson) giving a big "thumbs down" to a new establishment and frets over Portico's impending visit to Bobo's on opening night. "Guy couldn't get dates, takes it out on the rest of the world," opines Larry. Cheryl asks Larry to pick up some Colon Cleanse for her, which her osteopath recommended to treat her cough. At the health food store, Jeff (Jeff Garlin) corroborates Susie's dentist excuse. Larry spots Phil (Ian Gomez), the bald chef he's hired, wearing a toupee, and feels compelled to fire him. He explains to his distraught restaurant partners that the chef was "literally, a bald-faced liar." Larry and Jeff stop by Jeff's daughter's school, which Portico's son also attends. Larry joins Portico in a parent-student dodgeball game, where things get out of hand, and Larry ends up damaging the curmudgeonly critic's treasured thumbs. Not only does Portico forgive Larry, but he recommends a new chef for Bobo's -- Guy Bernier (Paul Sand). Later, Larry and Cheryl get stuck in a car wash as her Colon Cleanse kicks in. The restaurant business seems to be on the upswing until the Bobo's crew discovers that Guy has Tourette's syndrome. The restaurant's open kitchen may not be the ideal place for his profane outbursts. Richard Lewis and Michael York are among those who turn up for a wild opening night.
