Richard (Richard Lewis) is low on the kidney transplant list, so he's hoping that Larry (Larry David) will come through for him. Richard wishes he were more famous, like his hero, Mickey Mantle, whose 500th home-run ball he owns. Richard offers to give Larry the valuable ball in exchange for his kidney. But then Larry runs into George (George Lopez) at the hospital, and George tells him that the head of the local "Kidney Consortium," Ben Heineman (Stuart Pankin), is an Orthodox Jewish Yankee fan who is willing to bend the rules for his friends. In an effort to get Richard moved up on the list of kidney recipients, Larry decides to befriend Heineman by inviting him and his daughter, Rachel (Iris Bahr), to Jeff's (Jeff Garlin) cabin for a ski trip. Larry decides to further ingratiate himself by pretending to be an Orthodox Jew. Of course, this will only work if Susie (Susie Essman) pretends to be his wife. Larry also gets into a dispute with Lisa (Mo Collins), Richard's allegedly larcenous nurse, about the alleged size of her genitalia.
