Jerry desperately wants Joel Hornek, a childhood friend who keeps calling him and wanting to hang out together, to leave him alone. George suggests Jerry tell him the truth and break up with him much as he would with a girl.

George meanwhile thinks he's blown it with a new girl after he lets he know he likes her. Kramer comes up with a new business idea - a make-your-own pizza place. Written by
