Lubbock Was Mentioned On ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ [VIDEO]
I guess you don't have to take this as a slam on Lubbock if you don't want to, but it kind of is.
So, what would be a strong enough deterrent to keep you from helping a fellow human being? Being forced to stay in Lubbock, Texas is the answer in this scene from HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm."
Check out this little back-and-forth between Larry David and Ed Begley Jr. Ed DOES NOT want to help a sick airline passenger out of fear of an emergency landing in the Hub City. (This clip actually pre-dates this Lubbock namedrop on "Saturday Night Live" over the weekend.)
It's a quick moment, but I have the video right at the beginning of the joke setup for you.
