Added DiffLines:

** The show initially presents Larry as the sole cause of all his problems, but gradually, more characters are introduced with their own awkward personalities. His reputation means that often he is blamed for something that is someone else's fault. An example is in Season 4 where both his co-stars Ben Stiller and David Schwimmer argue frequently with him.


Added DiffLines:

*** Richard Lewis is much like George, a longtime friend who is worse off than the protoganist. He is neurotic, always in failing relationships, and rarely is he seen to be successful.

Added DiffLines:

* MythologyGag: In "Car Periscope", Larry tests out a car with a built-in periscope that lets you see above the traffic. This idea was pitched by Kramer (and shot down by Jerry) way back in Larry David's previous series, ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}''.

* FieryRedhead: A flashback to when he and Cheryl first got married revealed the abrasive Larry to have curly auburn hair; years later, lost the red tresses but the spirit is still fiery.

** Michael Richards gets into an argument on the street with a black man over SomethingCompletelyDifferent[[note]](Richards thought he had some sort of odd disease, and he was referred to someone who was also living with it, who was black)[[/note]]. He doesn't say anything racial, but considering [[RippedFromTheHeadlines what happened to him a few years prior]], and, well...
--->'''Richards''': ''(seeing someone filming him on their phone)'' Aw, no...

* HollywoodTourettes: It afflicts the French chef that Larry and his associates hire for their restaurant in Season 3.
--> '''Chef''': Fuckhead, shitface, cocksucker, asshole, son of a bitch!

* DisproportionateRetribution: Larry is hardly the best person in the world, but some of his faux pas can hardly even be called offensive and receive a ridiculous response anyway. For example, in one episode Larry tries to buy a new set of shoes he lost at a department store, but since they're not in stock Larry has to order them through the store. Before long he finds his original pair, though, and has them fixed up at a cobbler. The salesman who fulfilled the order happens to run into Larry as he's leaving the cobbler, and not only lectures Larry on spurning the "favor" he did for Larry, but ''appears out of thin air'' to basically run Larry out of the building when he tries to return the new shoes at the store.
