Palestinian Chicken

Larry becomes a “social assassin” after he makes a comment about cold mashed potatoes at a dinner party. things begin to go awry, when he is enlisted by his friend to tell his wife, Ilene (Maggie Wheeler), to stop saying “LOL” this turns out to be the straw that broke the camel’s back, and Ilene blames her husband for putting Larry up to it.

Larry and Jeff begin eating at Al-Abbas, a Palestinian restaurant that has the best chicken in LA. Larry says it’s a great place for Jews, who want to cheat on their spouses, b/c no other Jews would ever think to go in there. Larry spots Ilene at the restaurant with another man (Larry Miller), who also happens to be a member of Larry’s golf team, that is competing for their club championship.

meanwhile, Funkhouser’s re-dedication to Judaism, may prevent him from competing on Larry’s team. Larry and Jeff invite Funkhouser to lunch at Al-Abbas. Larry befriends a female patron, after confronting Funkhouser about wearing his yamulke inside the restaurant.

Funkhouser: if Rabin and Arafat can break bread, then I guess I can eat chicken at this Palestinian shithole.

there’s some really funny dialogue in the sex scene, with Shara (the Palestinian woman) cursing at Larry.
Shara: fuck me, you fucking Jew!
Larry: filthy Jew, filthy Jew.
Shara: you Zionist pig, you occupying fuck, occupy this!
Larry: I’m an occupier.
Shara: fuck me, you Jew bastard! fuck me, like Israel fucked my people! Leib, son of Nat.
Larry: let’s leave my father out of this.

Funkhouser is waiting in the living room, and overhears most of the session. Larry introduces him to Shara, and after she leaves, he asks Larry “when did u have your orgasm? when she said she’d fuck the Jew out of you?”

the episode ends at a rally where a new Al-Abbas restaurant has opened up right next to a Goldblatt’s Delicatessen, and Larry is caught in the middle.
