The Bare Midriff

TV-MA | 32 MIN

Directed by Larry Charles

Written by Larry David

Larry loses out to Jerry and has to talk to their assistant Maureen about her belly-baring attire. Insulted, she quits but Julia (who got her the job) demands Larry make things right, so as not to upset Maureen's mentally unstable mother. Meanwhile, Larry's new pill has increased his flow so much it is causing him to splatter, which leads to a misunderstanding about a miraculously weeping Jesus in Maureen and her mother's bathroom. The mother is stunned at how much Larry reminds her of her husband (who was murdered on their honeymoon in a road rage incident) and has a traumatic flashback when she's driving with Larry that causes her to injure Richard Lewis. Everything culminates with Larry's dangerous rescue of the mother from a suicidal roof jump in which Larry's life is saved by the offending midriff.
