Season 5, Episode 10, "The Cigar Store Indian"

An excellent season 5 episode, though it lacks a bit in theme or memorable central storyline, "The Cigar Store Indian" has some of the show's funniest moments.

Most of all it stands out for being the first Seinfeld episode to address racism (this is a show that has in recent years often been blamed or racism itself) in a hilarious, almost disturbing manner, almost ahead of its time in its deconstruction of PC which was quite prevalent at the time. George's scenes are all hilarious too, and of course this is the origin of Kramer's famous "Coffee table book".
