And the moral of this tale is....never congratulate a friend on the size of his son's winkle
18 June 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Larry David could, to coin an old phrase, cause trouble in an empty house. At a pool party thrown by fellow restaurant-financier Hugh Mellon, David commits two errors which will prove painful in their fallout. Firstly, he decides to use the off-limits house toilet and, secondly, he mentions Mellon's son's winkle to him in conversation.

A great episode, there's Richard Lewis' insistence that he came up with the expression "The (blank)from hell" and a nanny that is simply looney-tunes.

8 out of 10. Not one of the best episodes but clever and funny nonetheless.
