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: I think I am just going to get a Cobb Salad. I'd like to make a few substitutions, if that's OK. I'll get... no bacon. No eggs. Bleu cheese on the side.
Cliff Cobb: Are you sure you want a Cobb Salad? Do you do that every time you order that salad?
Larry: Do you have a problem with it?
Cliff Cobb: It's my grandfather's salad. I'm a Cobb of Cobb salad fame.
Larry: I think that this is a real bullshit story
Larry: Who do you think has more freedom: the married man in America or the single man in Communist China?
