Curb sets many a scene at this famous Jewish delicatessen in Santa Monica, known far and wide for its hefty sandwiches. Here, Larry stages yet another “run-in,” this time with an orthodox Jew who happens to be the head of the kidney consortium. Hoping to buddy up and help his boy Richard move up the list, he waltzes in with his yarmulke and his best phony baloney Hebrew accent to get in Ben Heineman's good graces. You can also witness Jerry Seinfeld giving him shit about his crazy napkin habits here, habits that will haunt him later.
