Ted asks Larry for permission to date his ex-wife and when he says no, Larry finds out they are doing it anyway.
(He also finds out that Marty Funkhouser, played by Bob Einstein, dated Cheryl behind his back.) How quickly did you land on Ted becoming a romantic interest for Cheryl?
Ted Danson and Cheryl David dating was a seed you planted in the premiere that quickly paid off in this episode.The first day of filming was the day after the 2016 presidential election, and they filmed the second-episode sex scene later in November."That was Larry's idea on the day, he just started going through the list.But then Trump kept firing the people that we were naming, so we had to keep opening up the episode to change them," says Schaffer of the names, which initially included Sean Spicer and Reince Priebus."[Steve] Bannon ended up going but he’s still a dark force that needed to be mentioned, so we added Jared Kushner because he seems to be impervious.
Is it safe to say that we will see more of Ted and Cheryl pursuing their relationship? We may see her again, but that was Larry’s shot at Mary and I think it didn’t work out. There were two things with landing on the disguise.
