Storyline

George gets Steinbrenner hooked on eggplant calzones from a local Italian restaurant. But George gets banned from the restaurant when he's accused of stealing from the tip jar. He then asks Kramer to pick up the calzones, but Kramer gets kicked out when he tries to pay with pennies. George's last resort in getting the calzones is Newman who wants a cut of every delivery. Meanwhile, Kramer will only wear clothing if it's straight from the dryer. Written by halo1k

George Costanza: [George had been banned from Paisano's] Well, this is bad. I am really in a bad situation now.
Jerry: So what is Steinbrenner going to do if he doesn't get his calzone?
George Costanza: What's he gonna do? That's exactly the point! Nobody knows what this guy is capable of. He fires people like it's a bodily function!

Funny episode.
27 January 2007 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

This is a really great episode, all except for the Kramer plot which is amusing, but a little bit silly. In this episode, George becomes Steinbrener's pet when he lets him have a taste of his calzone, and they begin eating calzones every day for lunch. Elaine in this episode, is dating a man who won't say that they are going out, but takes her on dates, and has found a dating loophole. Kramer has a lot of change and is cooking his shirts in ovens. The Jerry plot is very small and deals with him getting Cuban cigars from Elaine's boyfriend. This is a really funny episode, and has some really great moments, like George Steinbrener's extremely long and silly speeches. Though this is not a perfect episode, it is really good episode.

My rating: Excellent episode. 30 mins. TVPG
