Storyline

It's December 23rd, and Larry gets up to get a midnight snack. He eats some cookies in the refrigerator. Unfortunately, those cookies were a nativity scene that Cheryl's devoutly religious sister was preparing, and being Christmas Eve, it's too late to get a replacement. Larry scrambles to find a replacement, which he does in the form of a live nativity scene at a local church. But a hair stuck in Larry's throat means no nativity scene. Written by halo1k

A Very Good Episode
19 May 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was a very good episode of CYE, and the second best of the third season, after "The Corpse Sniffing Dog." The story involves Christmas, specifically Cheryls parents visiting for the holidays and their Christmas spirit making Larry uncomfortable. It also involves Christmas tipping, as Larry tips people at his club and insists he accidentally tipped one guy twice, and then tries to get his money back. He also is accused of tipping one of his employees more than the other, and has a couple Spanish speaking employees gossip about him right in front of him, but in their mother tongue. A side plot involves Jeff having Larry lie for him about a late night phone call Jeff made to a woman. Larry, who has no qualms about lying, tells Jeffs wife he made the call to his housekeeper, and was staying at Jeffs because of a fight with Cheryl. There are many funny moments, including Larry eating all of Cheryls Christmas cookies, thinking they were animal crackers: "That was Jesus? I thought it was a monkey!" The funniest are when Larry, who went down on Cheryl and now has pubic hair stuck in his throat, coughs constantly in front of Cheryls parents and feels awkward about telling them why. Larry shows his usual lack of tact in leering at a woman acting as Virgin Mary in a church production, and this results in a fight. I found it funny because it has those unique CYE moments, like Larry choking on his wifes pubic hair in front of his wifes parents, then being asked for an explanation.
