Lewis Needs a Kidney is the fifth episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 5. It is the forty-fifth episode overall.


Larry David and Jeff Greene find out that their friend, Richard Lewis is sick and needs a kidney. They argue over which one of them would give him their kidney in the case that both of them are matches. Richard Lewis' cousin is deathly ill, but refuses to give up any organs before he dies, so Larry hopes that Richard's cousin will die soon in order to give him a kidney.

Larry also locks himself out of his car on his way to get food at Jack In The Box and has to walk through the drive-thru.
