Curb Your Enthusiasm Wiki

The Group is the tenth episode of Season 1 of Curb Your Enthusiasm. It is the tenth overall episode.


Jeff offers Cheryl a role in The Vagina Monologues, which Cheryl is eager to take. Larry runs into an old girlfriend Lucy (Melanie Smith) who asks him to go to an incest survivors group with her which is led by the director of the show (Laraine Newman). That night, Larry admits to Cheryl that he pleasured himself and briefly thought about Lucy who turned out to be "a prima donna" and hard to work with in his fantasies. Cheryl tells him he is no longer allowed to think about any ex-girlfriends during masturbation. She says she is going to the group because her stepfather abused her, but Larry disapproves, saying that if it was her stepfather, that doesn't really count as incest. Larry calls himself "Todd" at the meeting pretends to have been molested by his uncle Leo to avoid getting kicked out of the support group. The director of The Vagina Monologues turns out to have a very extensive list of incest encounters, and so when Larry runs into her with Cheryl, he acts sketchy about where he knows her from (he was sworn to secrecy). When Cheryl suspects an affair between the two of them, Larry finally admits how he knows her, but Cheryl calls the director and says that Larry "explained how he knows you from Gambling Addicts Anonymous". However, Larry's real uncle Leo, who never abused him, shows up to see The Vagina Monologues and when the director meets him, she confronts him about abusing Larry, creating mayhem for Larry once again.
