Self-centered, impatient, and difficult, Larry David creates awkwardness and discomfort in various social situations.
His problems are often caused by his own neuroses and an obstinate faith in his own (mis)understanding of etiquette.
At the same time, he usually has good intentions and often finds himself a victim of circumstance and of sensitive, easily-offended people he encounters.
Larry: Who do you think has more freedom: the married man in America or the single man in Communist China?
Cheryl: Well, I think you should write a letter of apology to him.
Larry: "Dear prick, why are you such a prick?"
