Abraham and Sara
The Rabbi uses the story of Abraham and Sara from the Book of Genesis to illustrate why Cheryl's 10th anniversary gift (letting Larry sleep with another woman) is acceptable. The infertile Sara let Abraham have sex with their Egyptian handmaiden, Hagar, so that they could have a child.

Extra-Bad Person
