When Larry (Garry Shandling) makes a resolution to only endorse causes he truly believes in, his newfound philosophy is put to the test when it might result in the loss of an important guest. Though Larry is convinced that having Rob Reiner as an upcoming guest will add a touch of class to the show, Reiner's recommendation of Larry to host a benefit tests Larry's resolve. Despite Artie's (Rip Torn) warning that Reiner will cancel his appearance if Larry declines, the host sticks to his guns, and Reiner subsequently cancels with claims of a sprained ankle. Pulling rank on Hank (Jeffrey Tambor), who had picked up the hosting gig after Larry turned it down, Larry takes the job, hoping to catch Reiner in a lie. Guest stars include Richard Belzer, Rob Reiner, and Pauly Shore.
