The Smoking Jacket is the sixth episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 5. It is the forty-sixth episode overall.


Jeff Greene gets invited to the Playboy Mansion and Larry is jealous he can't go. Cheryl is already angry with him, so he knows it is forbidden. Jeff explains to him the "double transgression theory"-- if his wife is already angry with him, going to the Playboy Mansion won't matter. When Larry goes there, he realizes that he and Hugh Hefner have the same smoking jacket, and they trade jackets. Larry also runs into issues with people bringing possessions of his into the bathroom with them.
