The Special Section is the sixth episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 3. It is the twenty-sixth episode overall.


Larry's mother dies, and his father Nat David insists that he didn't tell him right away because he "didn't want to bother him." His cousin, Andy David knew about his mother's death before Larry did. Larry is annoyed with several things regarding her tombstone--she can only be placed in a special section, due to a transgression on her part that prevents her from being buried in a Jewish cemetery, and the fact that Nat had her tombstone read: "Past Away" instead of "Passed Away" because he had to pay by the letter.
