As the second season of the program begins, Larry (Larry David) and Cheryl (Cheryl Hines) have moved out of their old house (see "Curb Your Enthusiasm: The Wire" from season one) and Larry is spending his days in a hotel, eating chips and watching Maury Povich. Cheryl wants to go meet with the realtor, but Larry is reluctant. "They're gonna go to boot camp," he explains, "and I wanna see which ones get rehabilitated." The realtor shows them a huge house with a great view of the beach. When the owner, Barbara (Jeanne Chin), mentions seeing some whales that morning, Larry asks, "Can you shoot the whales from the terrace? Cuz I like blubber for breakfast." Barbara's husband turns out to be Jay Schneider (Matthew North), who represents Larry's old collaborator, Jason Alexander. Schneider suggests that Larry and Jason take a meeting. Cheryl, eager to see Larry working again, agrees. Cheryl also loves the house, and they make an offer, even though Larry suspects that Jay lied about the percentage of cashmere in his sweater. Larry meets Jeff (Jeff Garlin) for lunch, and Jeff also wants Larry to meet with Jason. They run into Tom Clarke (Rick Hall), the Toyota dealer who sold Jeff his car. Larry says he's always wanted to be a car salesman, and convinces Tom to let him work for him for one day. "I can talk people into anything," Larry says, "except women into sex." It turns out to be tougher than Larry expected, especially when Richard Lewis shows up to mock him.
