Season 1, Episode 2 - "Ted & Mary" - Larry David and Jeff Garlin
In this episode of Curb, entitled "Ted and Mary," we get to meet Larry and Cheryl's couple-friends Ted (hey, he was on Cheers!) and Mary (hey, she was in Back to the Future Part 3!), watch Larry fumble through a crush and enjoy the saga of shoes, shopping and Simon.
Cheryl and Larry are unwinding bowling with their friends (and real-life husband and wife) Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen. Larry winds up and throws a strike thrilling, and impressing all. Ted hands Larry his winnings, Cheryl applauds and there are smiles aplenty. They're having such a good time that Ted invites them both to see Paul Simon with them in their luxury box seats that weekend.
Larry goes up to the counter to turn in his bowling shoes and is handed a pair of sneakers: not his. After looking around, the guy running the counter admits he must have given up Larry's shoes to another guy by mistake. They all can't believe the guy took them (What kind of guy would take someone else's shoes?!) so Larry leaves, not only his phone number, but the building... in his stocking feet.
Ted: "Does this happen to you a lot?"
Larry: "Yeah it does."
Ted, let me let you in on a secret: if it didn't we wouldn't have a show.
