That thing on tv where they spill water on their pants and try to dry it off in the bathroom with a towel, only to be walked in on, looking like they’re masturbating, is the worst one.
If a show tries to pull any kind of “Honey, it’s not what you think!” moment I am done. Right, your wife of 10 years is going to leave in a door-slamming huff without listening to your reasonable explanation because it looked like you might have been humping a dog from her perspective?
Curb Your Enthusiasm had an episode that pulled a very similar bit off very well and was very funny, however. It worked because it was one of the classic Larry David vs. Susie Green moments, and not a husband/wife scenario. I loved that show so much.
