Marty Funkhouser (played by Bob Einstein) is one of Larry's oldest friends. He considers Larry to be his best friend although Larry begs to differ.
A self-described "orphan," Marty lost his parents in death a year apart when he was about 65.
He has a wife, and one daughter Jodi, who is a lesbian. He also has a cousin who is a dentist.
He is often very methodical about most of his actions and puts great emphasis on family. Despite that, he has been known to take credit for things that don't apply to him.
Marty: I gotta pick up someone at the airport, and I know it's on the way. Can you give me a lift, please?
Larry: Why don't you ask your father to help jump start the car? (to empty passenger seat) Hey Leo, why don't you give him a push?!
Marty: Why do you pee sitting down?
Larry: Many reasons.
Marty: Do you crap standing up?
