Curb Your Enthusiasm Wiki

Ben's Birthday Party is the second episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 4. It is the thirty-second episode overall.


Larry reunites with his blind friend, Michael, who is the pianist for The Producers. He introduces Larry to his girlfriend Rhonda, who is an unattractive woman who told Michael that she was a model. She expects Larry to lie for her.

Then, at Ben Stiller's birthday party, Larry doesn't bring a gift because Ben told him "No gifts". However, when they arrive they see a large pile of gifts, everyone else having assumed that "No gifts" is something that no one ever says sincerely. While playing a game of "telephone" with the children at the party, Larry says "I love tits", thinking that one of the little boys whispered it to him, when the real message was "I love pigs". Larry insults Susie's glittery homemade sweatshirts, but eventually decides to make amends by buying one for Ben as a birthday gift.

Richard Lewis asks Larry to convince his family friend's daughter, Kim, that she doesn't need breast implants, which she plans on getting for her acting career. Larry fails, and Kim ends up getting the implants and putting Larry's hands on her breasts to show him how real they feel. Cheryl catches Kim doing this. Combining this with Larry's use of the word "titmouse" when he sees a regular mouse, and Larry's "telephone" faux pas, she decides that he has a breast fetish.
