    The whole Prius passenger seat thing was hilarious. The Suzie/Larry scene was probably the most i've laughed at something on television this year.

    I also thought that Ana was going to get sick from the seat moving - I guess that is why it was such a hilarious twist!

    Leon makes the show - Larry's idea about him wearing glasses was top notch. So far I give this season 10/10. Almost every episode has been laugh out loud funny. I pray they come back for another season. I can't believe there is only one episode left... :(

    The whole time I kept thinking that this is just like a Seinfeld episode! I love the uncomfortable Larry but I think I love this Larry even more. A lot less wincing and a lot more laughing. Leon didn't even annoy me as much as usual.

    Smigel doing the Triumph voice was very distracting. He shouldn't have done it exactly.

    I loved how at the end after Larry was talking about what a "good job" he did Anna asked if they could just go for a nice long drive :)

    Actually I really don't think Larry is that much of a jerk season. A lot of the things he is complaining about annoy me as well.

    I did the "Chat and Cut" to my wife the other day. We were at a local dive called "Falafel Drive In" and she was standing in the shade while I was standing in the long line and then at the last moment she comes up and starts talking. I looked at her and said are you doing a "Chat and Cut" and the people in front of me burst out laughing.

    Really good episode this one. Susie and Larry in the car was hilarious.

    It was interesting (in Larry's flashback in the Mister Softee truck with the driver's daughter) to see the origin of his infamous "pretty ... pretty ... pretty ... pretty ... pretty good!" comments.

    I used to get Mister Softee all of the time when I went to visit my grandparents on Long Island. Although the last time I got a Mister Softee was in August 2001 right in front of the World Trade Center on a trip to NYC.

    I dislike the sport of Baseball these days but am really enjoying the baseball-themed shows in CYE this season.

    And it makes sense that Larry would really go to NYC to avoid a camp thing?

    Leon is gold!

    This was the first episode EVER where I actually LIKED the Leon character. His expression sitting on the seat was great...as was Suzie.

    Buckner was surprisingly good, and wow, he's a good sport. Definitely one of my top 5 CYE eps of all time.

    It makes sense for Larry to be there...yes. But I think the point was that it makes no sense for Leon to be there as well. It seems to me they couldn't figure out a good way to get him to NY with Larry.

    Disagree. Leon's whole tie in to the story line is that he just shows up and lives with Larry. Did it in Cali after and is now doing it in NYC. Leon just leaches off him. To get caught up on that is just silly...

    Not caught up on it, really. I just think Leon is a pointless character, and became that once the hurricane family left. He should have gone with them. I'm not even sure where Leon would get the money to even come to NYC.

    Bill Buckner was a horrible actor, not surprisingly.
