Larry (Larry David) goes to see his manager, Jeff (Jeff Garlin), who complains that the inner-city kid he sponsored to go to summer camp burned down the canteen and his cabin. "See what happens?" Larry tells Jeff, "You do one nice thing in your life -- I'm assuming it's the first nice thing you've ever done in your life." Larry also points out that it would have been better if the kid had been a kleptomaniac. "Pyro's a bad -maniac," agrees Jeff. Meanwhile, Larry's wife, Cheryl (Cheryl Hines), is obsessed with getting rid of the wire that hangs over their backyard, spoiling the view. The only thing in the way of Cheryl's quest is a neighbor couple, Dean (Wayne Federman) and Phyllis (Lucy Webb), who won't sign a petition to put the wire underground until they meet with Larry and Cheryl. It turns out that Dean is a lawyer, so Larry hooks him up with Jeff, who is being charged for damages by the summer camp. But Dean is also a big Seinfeld fan, and he makes it clear that he won't give Larry and Cheryl what they want unless he gets to meet Julia Louis-Dreyfus. At Cheryl's insistence, Larry reluctantly arranges the meeting, but when Julia shows up, Dean is nowhere to be found, and things only get worse when Phyllis breaks out her camcorder.
