Has anyone tried to open merchandise that comes enclosed in a heavy
plastic wrap? It can drive a person insane, which is what happens to
Larry when he receives an electronic device that he tries to open, but
finds it impossible to do because, no matter what he uses, the damn
thing proves it can defeat most of us.
Loretta, who has a way to boss Larry around, has a doctor's appointment she wants him to take her. He had made plans for playing golf, so he asks her if she can't postpone it. She asks him to tell her what's more important, her cancer, or his game? Larry thinks he has a possible solution for getting out of the relationship with Loretta. He has watched prominent female, Dr. Trundle, interviewed on television who believes certain couples are bad for each other when one of the partners has been struck with cancer. Larry wants Loretta to go see this doctor.
When Larry meets for dinner with Jeff and Susan and Richard and his new girlfriend, Beverly, at a restaurant, he is shocked to hear from his manager about how this new woman performed fellatio on Lewis on their way to dinner. Beverly who has been looking forward meeting Larry offers him a sip from her drink, something that he refuses because of what he has heard from Jeff. Not only that, when she wants to give him a parting kiss, Larry goes a bit berserk. How dare she even think about offering her drink, or even kissing Larry, after what she did to Richard?
The visit to Dr. Trundle doesn't go well. Larry does everything to appear to be he is totally wrong to be with Loretta. He wants the doctor to come out and say the magic word. When Larry picks up the picture on her desk, it shows the doctor and her husband, a distinguished man with a head of white hair. The doctor asks Larry to step out and wait outside. There he recognizes the doctor's husband, but he is approached by Dean Weinstock, his old neighbor. Not knowing whether to shake his hand, or give him a hug, he chooses the second option and in doing so, he breaks the man's eyeglasses, which are hanging from a neck strap. Dean feels it was Larry's fault his glasses got broken and demands his old friend pay.
On the way to Dr. Trundle's lecture she wanted Loretta and Larry to attend, he is surprised when he looks to a car on the highway traveling to his left. It is Mr. Trundle, who cuts passes him and goes to the right to the lane that Larry is driving. Larry and Loretta are shocked when they watch Dr. Trundle's head goes up as it appears she had been doing something to her husband in the car! Larry and Loretta decide to forget the lecture. When Dr. Trundle sees Larry in the lobby of the medical building, she wants to talk to him. Larry informs the doctor he saw her practicing fellatio on the husband while driving! Nothing could be so far fetched as she explains she dropped her cell phone and was trying to retrieve it!
Richard Lewis, had come with Beverly to Larry's to have him apologize to her. Larry confesses about hearing what she had done to Richard on the way to the restaurant and Beverly gets angry at both of the men for spreading rumors about her. That will be the end of Richard's relationship with the beautiful Beverly. Richard, naturally, blames Larry for the breakup.
Larry must find a device that can cut right through that annoying plastic wrapping and buys a blade that will cut through anything at a hardware store. There he meets Leon Black. Earlier Leon had told him about how one of his friends is a big fan of Larry's. Leon evidently has been fooling around with his wife. As Larry arrives to his house later on, he is told by Leon to hide his friend's wife in his car. Loretta, who comes in, not realizing what's going on, is horrified to find a woman that appears to be giving Larry oral sex. Loretta packs up and leaves.
As Larry goes to a party at Michael York's, he sees a car that got off the road. To his total amazement, after stopping to help, he realizes it's Jeff and Susie trapped inside the vehicle. For all appearances they had an accident because Susie was performing fellatio on Jeff. Susie, in desperation, asks Larry to get a knife to cut the seat belts. He goes to his car and finds the special cutter he bought earlier, only to find out it's wrapped in the heavy plastic wrapping he so much hates!
Larry takes four different ideas to make his point. Sex in cars, hard to deal with industrial packaging. Celebrity doctors with books about stupid conclusions and how people greet one another. Vivica Fox shows up as Loretta, the manipulating woman who uses her disease as a crutch on Larry. Lolita Davidovich plays Beverly. Sharon Lawrence has some excellent moments as Dr. Trundle. The regulars do their usual best. Alec Berg directed this episode.
