    This episode was an instant classic. Everything clicked: from Buckner, to Yari the mechanic, to the blabbing therapist, to Ana Gasteyer AND Leon AND Susie orgasming on the rattling seat (I had to pause for a good couple minutes for each one, I was laughing so hard), it all fell into place so seamlessly. Certainly one of the best CYEs of all time, IMO. Great stuff.

    The car scene with Suzie was classic! It was a very Seinfeld-ish episode.

    I don't think I'd go that far, but it was definately one of the better (Top 10-ish) CYE episodes. If they would have left out Leon entirely, it would have been that much better.

    I love Leon. His description of the Prius seat cracked me up.

    I was dying while watching this episode. Everything fit together great. I don't usually like Leon, but his addition during this episode was awesome, with him able to get all the perks that are usually denied him just by putting on glasses.

    The way the camera panned back and forth between Larry and Susie, as each of their expressions got more and more pronounced, was freakin' hilarious.

    At first I thought Ana was getting motion sickness and was about to throw up. It took me a while to figure out what she was doing.
    Larry and Susie in the car ... LOL!!

    I know many don't like Leon and yes it makes no sense that he's in New York with Larry but I love him on this show. The interaction with him and Larry is great.

    That was my initial take as well. They had just eaten. Larry was babbling, the seat was moving around, I thought she was going to get sick, her expressions seemed more like nausea than orgasmic :D

    I wonder what the fact that I knew exactly what she was doing says about me... :eek:

    This. I love watching Leon and Larry play off of each other. It's obvious that Larry has great fun with JB Smoove.

    I also thought Anna was getting sick in the O seat.

    Larry irritates the heck out of me but his interactions with Suzie kill me. She's funny. Larry's annoying. I'm still trying to figure out how he gets women.

    Seinfeld millions probably has something to do with it :)

    It was nice seeing and hearing the voice of Triumph the Insult comic dog. Every time he yelled at Larry I kept picturing him holding the Triumph puppet.

    I haven't laughed that long in a while. That was a great episode.

    I like Cheryl Hines but the show is much better with Larry being single.

    I was waiting for Larry to break out his Steinbrenner voice when Yuri was ranting about what Steinbrenner would have said.
