It's a Sad Christmas, Larry
The reason for Larry's depression is possibly explored in It's a Sad Christmas, Larry. In this episode, Larry is first seen sitting in a chair at his friend's house on Christmas morning as his kids open their presents. The mother comes over and offers Larry a Christmas cookie which he unenthusiastically accepts, thanking her. Just than his friend brings over a present revealing that it's for Larry. Larry opens the present to find a pair of fuzzy dice to hang from the rearview mirror of a car and starts crying. His friend awkwardly apologizes, stating that they didn't know his car was totaled in the accident. Larry brushes it off and takes a drink from a mug before reading on it "Daddy's Boy". Sheepishly, his friend states "Oh right, the mug. Sure your dad's in the hospital but you survived right?" which only makes Larry start crying again. His friend dismisses the kids so he can talk to Larry alone and tells Larry that his dad is in the hospital as well and they don't know if they'll make it. However, just then, he gets a call from the hospital saying that his dad is okay and will make it home for Christmas dinner his friend announces the news to his family before apologizing to the crying Larry.
The scene changes to Larry stringing popcorn for decorations which he is thanked for. Just then, the doorbell rings and the Grandfather come in much to the kids excitement. The old man looks at Larry and states "You're not my son!" to which Larry laughs and says, "That's funny, my dad used to say the same thing." before crying again. His friend introduced Larry and said that he's going to be having dinner with them and adds that it's time to start.
Soon, everyone is sat at the table and starts to pray which his friend insists Larry lead. Larry starts off a normal dinner pray adding that he could do without his dad being on his death bed and wanting a place to live. His friend immediately cuts Larry off and finishes the normal prayer. His friend starts to ask his father about the hospital when the phone rings. His friend goes to answer it and immediately comes back announcing that it's the hospital and they want to put Larry on the phone with his dad. For the only time so far, Larry looks happy but it immediately drops when he takes the phone. On the other end, he hears his dying dad's voice say that it's all Larry's fault before he flat-lines. In the background you can hear a doctor say "Is it the old man that's alone on Christmas and another correct "No, it the one with the worthless son."
His friend eagerly asks for the news but getting no response, asks Larry if he could help him out once he's done crying. The family resumes conversation while Larry launches into a vivid flashback of the accident, which really was Larry's fault. Pulling Larry out of the flashback Larry's friend states "I wouldn't do that, would you, Larry?" Larry snaps out of it and answers no despite not hearing the question. This turns out to be the wrong answer as the whole family becomes offended and his friend kicks Larry's plate in his face before kicking him out.
Larry tries in vain to fix his mistake before turning around, revealing that Larry is currently wheelchair bound, before wheeling out and falling off the porch landing face first in the snow. Larry starts crying before being run over by a snow plow.
