This episode has it all
2 July 2009 | by (Lebanon) – See all my reviews

All the famous things that you are aware of starts from this episode. Pitching Kramer's famous idea the coffee table book about coffee tables. The guy who meets Elaine in the Bus and in later episodes a strange mannequin who looks a lot like Elaine starts to appear in all stores and this guys turns out to be the maker of the mannequin. And in this same very episode, Jerry likes a native American woman who is a friend to Elaine and she gets offended by the gift that Jerry brings to Elaine, the Indian man! And following some of the conversations that Jerry has with this woman: Jerry: "I though we'd eat at the Gentle Harvest" Winona: "OO I love that place but it should be so crowded. Can we get a table?" Jerry: "Oh, don't worry i made reser.." Winona: "You made what?" Jerry: "I uh I arranged for the appropriate accommodations"

Jerry: " And then.. Knick tickets, floor seats." Winona: " How did you get these?" Jerry: " Got 'em on the street from a scal.." Winona: "From who?" Jerry: "One of those guys" Winona: "What guys?" Jerry: "You know the guys that sell the tickets to the sold out events"

And Georgi has an affair with a lady from the antique store where Jerry bought the gift to Elaine. George sleeps with the lady in his parent's bed and they find the condom wrapper when they come back and listen to Frank Costanza here: "What is this? A prophylactic wrapper? We're gone one week and you turn our house into Bourbon street. You want to live here, you respect the rules of this house. You're GROUNDED!!"
