Larry and Cheryl are invited to a dinner party thrown by a retired porn star, Gil Thelander (Bob Odenkirk), who performed under the name "Gil Bang." Jeff, who is in the hospital after a routine check-up reveals he urgently needs emergency bypass surgery, asks Larry to hide his porn collection from Susie (Susie Essman) in case something happens to him. However, it is Susie's parents that discover Larry enjoying Jeff's porn near the end.
