Larry
Don't want to give away too much for those who are going to read the book but there was a very funny episode where Larry was interrogated by the Israeli police. After the standard questions they started asking extremely personal questions about his sex life and partners mentioning details of his life in CA. For a few seconds he was amazed and creeped out by the thoroughness of Israeli intelligence until he saw some cruising buddy's on another boat cracking up.

I was impressed that he buddies were able to get Israeli police to go along with a joke, they seemed like a pretty serious bunch.
