While trying to get into a trendy new restaurant, Larry accidentally hands the host Cheryl's prescription instead of a $20. Larry tries to retrieve the prescription as Cheryl's condition gets worse, but he later has to get a new one, and that means having to see the doctor he insulted earlier. Written by halo1k

very good
21 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

every time larry makes me laugh and cheryl seems to be a greater comfort for the viewers than just to larry,the old swag.his crazy mates just love him and in every situation he does exactly what every other one of us would do,if we had the intelligence and the balls to open our mouths.-and makes a great blunder with every word that flows from his mouth.sometimes others do get the better of him tho.cheryl is always funny,even though she never makes a joke.its her understanding of larry and that beautiful constant inner smile saying,my husbands a jerk,a smart jerk,a lovable jerk,and i understand him coz i love him coz he's really better than the rest of those crackheads.this was a funny episode,highlighting all our racist action.gee i sound like I've just put on a golf sweater and claiming my 500 bucks for finding larry's little book.i'd like to see whats in that book.I've got plenty of them.this is a genius series.and genius with beauty always wins.thanks larry and cheryl.and that fat guy for stealing your mince pies...he's funny...larry and him must have a real laugh.
