Curb Your Enthusiasm - "Denise Handicap" - 10/18/09

"Denise Handicap"
Spoiler:
Larry learns to embrace the upside of disability without actually being disabled, and looks to disprove the rumor that Rosie O'Donnell can kick his ass.

After a slight disappointment last week (but still a pretty good episode) Curb comes back with another fantastic episode. So many great moments in this episode. Larry with the handicap women, Rosie O'Donnell, and the beach incident haha.

Nice solid episode! The Rosie plot was a bit forced but the rest was great. "Who's she?" Wendy Wheelchair "And her?" Denise Handicapped

Fantastic episode! As another poster mentioned, just so many things to love in this one. Loved seeing D/H projectiled onto the bed with a drum roll no less. Hiding her in the closet and then running away up the stairs was great. Like a cat climbing up a tree while the dogs are left only to bark from below. Easily, the best of this season (so far) for me. I agree the check argument was a bit forced (even for Larry), but if you're gonna have someone come after you and mean it, who better than an fat angry loudmouth like Rosie.

Leon was comedy gold in this episode.

"You did the dizzle on her?"
"Bring the fuckin' ruckus to that ass, Larry"
"I woulda had her ass tap-dancing, Larry. I don't fuck around."
"I'll go over there and twist that ass up, Larry"
"I'll bend that bitch like Beckham"
"I'll have her ass like a Goddamn pretzel"
"You shoulda broke that ass in two pieces"
"You shoulda come back with the bottom half of her ass"

Jesus I was dying in that scene.

Finally. I was so sick of this show sucking. Back to normal but the whole family moving in just always seemed like cheap laughs. But this episode has me cracking up so many times it was great.

"Does she have a proclivity for chopsticks?"

The scene at the restaurant with Larry and Ted Danson arguing about the pie was hilarious

My favorite episode in years. That was friggin amazing. So glad they figured a way to get rid of the Blacks but keep Leon. Intellectually, his staying makes no sense, but comically, it's by far the best thing they could have done.

I have no idea what Ted Danson is like in real life, but he's amazing on the show. He cracks me up every time. His barely-concealed seething rage is just perfect.

Glad to see the thread unanimous so far... this was one of my favorite episodes of the show ever... so many great lines, i was from when Denise read "Wendy Wheelchair" 'til the very end.

Totally agreed Decker that keeping Leon seems so random, but I'm so glad they did, he was always a riot even through some mediocre episodes with The Blacks.

Re: Curb Your Enthusiasm - "Denise Handicap" - 10/18/09

I loved this ep, but I wish they'd waited to set up the Seinfeld reunion until later in the season. It's weird to have these stand-alone eps with only a line from Jeff to LD about the reunion. It makes sense from a ratings standpoint to have Jerry & crew on early, but it's endlessly frustrating to have them gloss over such a thing from week to week. While LD may have his faults, it doesn't make sense to have his character having all this casual sex while still having the desire to get back with Cheryl. It would make more sense to have him go from Vivica to flings to Cheryl, not Vivica to realizing he wants Cheryl to casual sex filler and then back to Cheryl eventually. Curb fans are curb fans, they don't need sweeps week-style stunts to get us to watch.

Great episode. I'm not a big Rosie O'Donnell fan, but I got a kick out of seeing her beating up Larry.

Larry making out with Denise was the best part by far.

And Amy Pietz looked amazing

I was expecting him try to keep her as his girlfriend after he saw the special treatment, parking pass etc... However, she would want to break up with him for whatever reason.

I didn't like the Rosie ending either. Bit to forced and over the top.

It boggles my mind how most of you loved this episode, but thought last week's was over-the-top. This was every bit as over-the-top, and probably more.

Loved it. The makeout scene was my least favorite part, much too contrived, but other than that it was hilarious. Some classic stuff.

Are you a woman, by any chance?

I think they were both equally as over-the-top, and equally as brilliant.
