Episode Info

Larry (Larry David) gets "orthotic" inserts for his shoes from his podiatrist (Carlos Jacott). They ease his foot pain, but they make a horrible squeaking noise when he walks, creating a variety of problems. Larry asks his sullen handyman, Jesus (Lobo Sebastian), to hang a mezuzah on his front door before his father, Nat (Shelley Berman), visits. Cheryl (Cheryl Hines), whose parents are visiting, threatens to fire Maria (Lydia Blanco), their housekeeper and Jesus' wife, because she won't wear a bra. Larry loves the way Maria makes chicken salad, so he agrees to ask her to wear one. Larry gets into an argument when he mocks Cheryl's father (Paul Dooley) for wearing merchandise marketed in connection with The Passion of the Christ, a "Christ nail" on a leather string. He also offends Susie (Susie Essman) when he learns that her 11-year-old daughter, Sammi (Ashly Holloway), still believes in the tooth fairy.
