The Nanny From Hell is the fourth episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 3. It is the twenty-fourth overall episode.


Larry David meets the publisher, Hugh, of Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, a book that Richard Lewis wants to be featured in, for inventing the term "the ___ from hell". Larry hopes to make this happen for Richard, but things take a turn for the worse when he makes an inappropriate comment about Hugh's son's penis. Larry also discovers that Jeff Greene plans to reunite with his estranged wife, Susie Greene because she is pregnant. Meanwhile, Larry gets Hugh's nanny fired, who turns out to really be a "nanny from hell" when she is hired by Jeff and Susie Greene. When a certain insipid song sets her off in bouts of anger. This leads to her having a physical fight with Susie, and when Susie falls over she miscarries.
