Hugh (Tim Kazurinsky), one of the investors in the restaurant, invites Larry (Larry David) and the other investors to a pool party at his house. Larry confirms that Hugh's company publishes Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, and tells Hugh that Richard Lewis wants to be included in the book for coming up with the expression "[blank] from Hell." Hugh seems dubious, but agrees to look into it. Larry finds out that Jeff (Jeff Garlin) plans to go to the party, and Jeff also tells him that he's moving back in with Susie (Susie Essman), his estranged wife. He asks Larry not to tell anyone that Susie is pregnant. Larry and Cheryl (Cheryl Hines) stop off at their favorite bakery to buy a cake for the party, and learn that it's going out of business. Larry insists on buying a sponge cake, which Cheryl thinks no one will eat. But when they get to the party, Jeff says the cake is "like eating a delicious sponge." Larry needs to use the bathroom, but Hugh's nanny, Martine (Cheri Oteri), won't let him into the house, telling him that Hugh has insisted that guests use the cabana. Larry persuades her to let him in, promising he'll "take full responsibility." During the party, Larry notices that Hugh's young son is exceptionally well endowed. A few days later, the investors meet at the restaurant, where they discuss the trouble they've had finding a new chef. Larry tells Hugh privately that his son's "got some penis." Hugh doesn't respond well, and when Larry gets home, the unstable Martine is there with a suitcase. She tells him that she's been fired, and that he's responsible.
