Larry (Larry David) meets Cheryl (Cheryl Hines) and Yoshi (Greg Watanabe), an art dealer, at a Japanese restaurant for lunch. The staff of the restaurant call Larry "Chicken Teriyaki Boy" due to his penchant for ordering the same meal every time. At lunch, Larry is surprised to learn that Yoshi's father (Ken Takamoto), who lives in the same nursing home as Nat (Shelley Berman), was a kamikaze pilot during WWII. "Shouldn't he be dead?" Larry asks Yoshi, who is forced to explain, "He grazed the ship." The meal ends disastrously, with Yoshi believing that the oblivious Larry is calling him a chicken. Later, Larry is at a poker game when the host, Kevin (Kevin Nealon) is called away because Yoshi, who happens to be his brother-in-law, has attempted suicide. The guests decide to keep playing cards. Also, Larry catches Nat watching an inappropriate video at an even more inappropriate volume, debates the merits of a doctor's prescription vs. a pharmacist's recommendation, and demands an investigation into the legitimacy of the bingo game at Nat's nursing home.
