During a test-drive of Jeff's new "toy", a vintage '57 Chevy convertible, Larry mistakes the horn in an Aamco radio spot for that of an actual car idling behind him at a red light -- and ends up getting the car rammed. Later, hosting a dinner party catered by an unscrupulous woman who ends up stealing the leftovers, Larry meets Mike Duffy, an actual Aamco repairman, who agrees to fix Jeff's car. But Larry's good fortune is short-lived as he ends up alienating Mike by refusing to invite him to his house on Martha's Vineyard.

NOTE: I wonder what Cheryl had to do if she lost a bet with Larry...

In this episode, Larry gives a homeless guy the food he he gets back from the caterer. Chicken L'orange, in fact. This is weird, but what is weirder, in an earlier episode "the bracelet", when Larry is walking into the jewelry store, a homeless guy calls him "the chicken l'orange guy." What's going on here?

Mike,

I've already asked this question, not only here but on other sites as well. I have yet to get any explanation. The only possible explanation I can think of is that they aired the episodes out of order, and Aamco was supposed to be aired between Porno Gil and The Bracelet. However, if this was the case, wouldn't they have fixed this oversight and changed the order on the DVD of the first season? It just doesn't make any sense.

For those interested, continuity errors also occur in:

Ted & Mary: When Cheryl receives her shoes from the bowling clerk, they are black dress shoes. However, when they are all walking out of the bowling alley, she is wearing white sneakers. Then, when they get home, she has the black shoes on again.

The Benadryl Brownie: When Larry, Cheryl, Jeff, Richard Lewis and his new girlfriend are all at Larry and Cheryl's. After dinner, Larry is having problems with the TV. The rest are all sitting around eating brownies. From one shot to the next, the number of brownies on the plate on the coffee table changes back and forth (from 8 to 5, back to 8, etc.)

Brian,

The episodes can't simply have been aired out of order because of many other continuity lines that go throughout the series that aren't disrupted. I would love to see an interview with Larry or Robert to find out if this was some kind of intentional thing or what. The brownies and the bowling shoes seem like easy mistakes, but this chicken L'orange is too blatant. You are right, it doesn't make any sense.

I don't see any other continuity problems with the AAMCO episode. I agree that most of the episodes have continuity with previous ones, but the AAMCO episode in particular could have been intended to air prior to The Bracelet. Do you see any reason why it could not?

Can someone please tell me the title of the song playing on Jeff's car radio when he and Larry get rear-ended at the traffic light in the AAMCO episode? And the name of the performer as well.

Cool

Harold,

The song is "Poison Ivy" by The Coasters. It was released in 1959 and hit number 7 on the charts. Several other groups have recorded remakes of this song over the years, including The Rolling Stones and most recently Hanson.
