Curb Your Enthusiasm

Vow of Silence

Series 8 - Episode 5 Vow of Silence



If you caught all the publicity braying about series eight being set in New York, you may be wondering, halfway in, if Larry and his LA-centric pals will ever get there. This fifth episode deftly sets the wheels in motion. Jeff and Susie hold a leaving party and get bad news from the vet about their dog. Larry couldn’t care less, even denying the pooch his final meal, while obsessing about bad parking, “chat and cut” queue-jumpers and ducking an event for “special needs kids”. All of which comes back to bite him, of course.


Larry helps Jeff comfort his family's ailing dog by picking up its favourite food. He also hopes to lie his way out of attending a charity event - but his fake alibi spirals dangerously out of control. With Michael McKean, Michael Hitchcock and Rich Sommer.
