22. "The Ida Funkhouser Roadside Memorial" (Season 6, Episode 3)
Catchphrase: “That’s a good one, get that. Get that.”
Standout Susie ether: “Just knowing you is a liability!”
Most episodes of Curb involve Larry getting into trouble through a series of misunderstandings. In the others, he’s just an asshole. Here, he robs not one but two of Funkhouser’s admittedly OD memorials to his recently deceased mother, all to selfiishly get back in the good graces of people he fucked over earlier in the episode (and to get it in with Cheryl).
In between there’s a great recurring gag involving a nasty, sweaty $50 bill from Funkhouser that no one will take off of Larry’s hands, and the way he does get rid of it is a joke only he could pull off with impunity. Also, in this edition of Larry David’s mission to civilize, he’s up against sample abusers. Three guesses on how well that goes.
