It's a beautiful Sunday, and Larry (Larry David) and Jeff (Jeff Garlin), can't play golf, because they haven't heard back from the "restricted" golf club about their membership applications. They want to go to the next night's Dodger game, which is sold out. Larry remembers that Marty Funkhouser (Bob Einstein) has season tickets, and probably won't feel like going since his father died recently. "It doesn't hurt to ask," says Larry, but when they do, Marty tells them he's going to the game, and the second ticket is "spoken for." Later, Cheryl (Cheryl Hines) surprises him with tickets to the game. Larry tells Cheryl he plans to get out of jury duty. "I would serve if they made me foreman," he explains, "but I can't serve under another foreman. That's not gonna work." He ends up getting out of it by making a racist comment during jury selection. He also decides to buy some marijuana for his father (Shelley Berman), who suffers from glaucoma. When a street dealer (Jorge Garcia of Lost) offers him some expensive hydroponic weed, a very nervous Larry explains, "I'm not looking for a sound system," and ends up overpaying for some "schwag." The next day, Jeff cancels on him, and Larry decides to hire Monena (Kym Whitley), a prostitute, to ride in his car with him so he can use the car pool lane, beat traffic, and get to the game on time. She insists on going to the game with him, leading to a couple of awkward encounters. Ken Howard and James Sikking guest star.
