Cheryl David feels uncomfortable due to Larry's housekeeper, Maria, not wearing a bra. She is too embarrassed to speak with Dora directly, so she asks Larry to tell Dora to wear a bra. When Dora tells Larry she never wears a bra, Larry offers to buy her a particularly comfortable one. When Larry goes out to buy the bra, he first takes a look at Susie Greene's bra size because he thinks she might be the same size as Dora. After a verbal lashing from Susie, Larry buys the bra for Dora, only to discover that her husband, Jesus, is extremely angry with him. On top of that, Cheryl's Christian parents are visiting, and her father is wearing around his neck a nail from the movie, The Passion of the Christ. Larry's Jewish father Nat David is also visiting, and Larry has forgotten to nail the mezuzah that his father gave him, to the door. When Cheryl's father is asleep, Larry takes the nail and uses it to nail the mezuzah to the door in time for his father to arrive. The nail once again comes in handy when Jesus steps on it on his way to beat Larry up.
