Eerie: Richard Lewis Told Larry David He Was Leaving Him Money in His Will in This Season’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” (Watch)


It’s a little eerie now that beloved actor Richard Lewis has sadly died.

In the third of episode of this season’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” which aired two weeks ago, Larry David and Richard Lewis argue about leaving money to each if the other one dies first.

Lewis says, sitting in a golf cart, apropos of nothing: “By the way, my will. I’m going to see an estate attorney this week. So you’ll be covered. You’re set.”

Larry immediately counters that Lewis is doing this so Larry will put him in his will. Then a lightbulb goes off because he assumes Lewis is setting him up.

David: “And by the way, what makes you think I’m going to die before you?”

Lewis: “You’re a little ragged right now,” he retorts. I’m in a little better shape than you.”

“I’m going to outlive you by 20 years!” insists Larry.

Lewis: My trainer is going to move in with me!”

But what’s it all about? Lewis says to Larry, in real life his friend since birth: “When I die I want you to know how much I care about you!”

And that sums it up.
