Larry (Larry David) and Cheryl (Cheryl Hines) are late for a barbecue on the beach hosted by Mark (Rob Huebel) and Marla (Lauren Katz), but Larry insists upon going back into the house to get his jacket, boasting that like the third pig in The Three Little Pigs, "I build my house with bricks!" It turns out to be a chilly evening on the beach, and when Larry goes to get the jacket, he's dismayed to find the newly engaged Marla wearing it. He pesters her until she gives it back, but he's outraged to discover that she's spilled melted chocolate on it. Later, while Larry is meeting with his Korean bookie, Sung (Bobby Lee), Susie (Susie Essman) brings Oscar (Rhett the Dog) into the room, and Sung takes an odd degree of interest in the dog. When Oscar later vanishes, Larry assumes the absolute worst, leading him to cause a terrible scene at Mark and Marla's wedding. Larry is also outraged to discover that Ben Heineman (Stuart Pankin) still hasn't gotten his Cadillac repaired, despite the fact that Larry gave him a check for the damages. It turns out that Heineman gave Larry's money to his daughter, Rachel (Iris Bahr), for something she needed.
