Standout Susie ether: “Honestly, I don’t want to be next to you for eternity.”

Narratively speaking, “The Freak Book” is all over the place but who cares about a cohesive script when you’ve got Larry David and John McEnroe making assholes of themselves by laughing at the titular book in the middle of Paul McCartney’s pre-party at the Staples Center? Who cares if all the disparate plot threads make sense when you’ve got Larry pressuring Ted Danson to let his lonely driver come into his birthday party, and the guy gets so faded he yells “Happy birthday, Becker!” before feeling up Mary Steenburgen?

It’s impossible to not spend this whole episode in the same uproar Larry, Jeff, and McEnroe share toward their beloved, bizarre coffee-table read.
