Storyline

Larry goes to the hospital to see his new girlfriend, an orthopedist. While in the bathroom, Larry overhears one end of a very angry, horribly offensive cell phone conversation. But repeating what the man said offends another doctor - the same one who is about to perform Jeff's operation. But it only results in Jeff's head getting shaved, who now has to deal with being bald. Larry has to give testimony as Jeff prepares to sue the hospital. Written by halo1k

Larry dates a doctor, Jeff undergoes surgery, hilarity ensues
11 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is funny (as usual), but I'm growing more and more frustrated by the declining plausibility of Curb as the show goes on. It seems that during this sixth season, even more so than before, the actions of many characters are completely unrealistic and overblown. In fact, the entire episode rests on several incidents that would NEVER EVER even come close to happening in real life. If a person overhears you saying the N word, every single time they confront you, they'd give you a chance to explain the context you used it in. It's just basic human behavior. Not only that, but in the final scene, why didn't Larry just say "the n word" instead of "nigger"? I understand that characters on a television show have to be somewhat unrealistic to be interesting, but I think this is taking it too far, to the point where the suspension of disbelief is near impossible.
