Chicken on Skewers
Larry has a problem finding a place to dispose of the skewers after eating the chicken. Larry also says, "I'm not a kebob guy." (In the third season's first episode, Larry said he was against having "kebobs" being served in the restaurant he was investing in.)

Larry gives Ben an "Indiana" studded-shirt (purchased from Susie) and then Ben gives it to Michael.
