Larry vs Rosie
27 September 2011 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

The start of the episode finds Larry having a great time at an art gallery in Manhattan. He has met Jane Cohen, a vivacious woman who has not only given Larry her phone number, but has agreed to go on a date with him. At the exhibit, Larry runs into his friend Rosie O'Donnell. She goes to tell Larry about having met an exciting woman. When they compare notes, both have met the same Jane Cohen. Rosie promises she will give Larry a lot of competition.

As Larry gets home, he finds Leon who has driven Larry's own car to New York. Having just met Jane, he discusses the fact that Jane is bisexual and he does not know whether he will prefer him over Rosie. No problem, Leon has the solution: a Viagra pill will do the trick. Leon proceeds to make Larry's borrowed apartment into his pied-a-terre in Manhattan as well.

Larry is bringing food to Jane's. As he enters the Japanese restaurant, his friend Duckstein, from L.A., comes to greet him. The man asks him to lunch, something that Larry refuses. Duckstein talks about his expertise in the Heimlich maneuver, in case it is needed, but Larry will have none of it. At Jane's apartment, Larry discovers the whole dinner is ruined because the soup has leaked all over all the other dishes.

Larry returns to the restaurant to complain about the ruined dinner. The man at the desk offers to replace the meal, but Larry feels an apology will be better. The Japanese man gives a bow as a way of saying he is sorry for the disaster. Larry seems satisfied.

Larry and Jane have a great time in the sack. Jane seems happy about their tryst. The next day, Larry and Jeff are playing softball in Central Park against a team where Rosie O'Donnell is playing catcher. He is happy Jane appears to prefer him over Rosie. Jane had canceled her date with Rosie to the Tony's on Broadway. Rosie accuses Larry of taking Viagra in order to perform with Jane.

After the game, Larry runs into a group of Japanese tourists. One of the group knocks someone's ice cream and immediately bows in apology. Larry, who is watching has to ask about the custom and compare it with his own experience. The man explains an apology demands a deeper bow, making the bow from the restaurant owner a gave him a &^%$-bow.

As Larry prepares to go with Jane to the Baseball Museum in Cooperstown, he figures he needs another pill. Leon does not have anymore, so he gives him a tip about how to get it. Larry must go to Washington Square Park where all drug deals are made and look for a gray haired man who will sell him the pills. Larry goes, but he only gets two pills. As he and Jane arrive at the museum, he accidentally knocks Jane's shoe. By way of apologizing, he bows, spilling one of the blue pills from his shirt pocket.

Duckstein had a choking incident and is at the hospital. Larry goes to see him feeling guilty for having been mean to him. Duckstein could not care less. He is only too happy to have someone to share his hospital lunch with.

Another good episode in the 2011 series. The screenplay was written by Larry David, Alec Berg, Jeff Schaffer and David Mandel, who directed. The main theme is bisexuality, as Rosie O'Donnell is on board to compete for the charms of Jame Cohen. The other point being made is how common the use of Viagra has become. Mr. David plays well the apology aspect of this installment by comparing it to Japanese vowing and how few people practice the art of recognizing something that goes wrong.
