Storyline

George gets insulted by a co-worker named Reilly during a business meeting with the line "Hey George, the ocean called and they're running out of shrimp". He plans to get back at him with the "jerk store" remark, which all his friends try to change. Jerry buys a new tennis racket from Milos, a tennis pro-shop worker, because he thinks he is a great tennis player. Jerry finds out that Milos is a terrible tennis player and Milos offers Jerry his wife, Patty as some sort of "medieval sexual payola". Patty loses respect for Milos and begs Jerry to let him win a game of tennis in front of Patty. Elaine is renting videos from "Vincent's Picks" and develops a secret phone relationship with him. She betrays him when she rents "Weekend at Bernie's", a "Gene Pick". Kramer asks Elaine to act as a witness to "pull the plug" if he ever goes into a coma because he watches "The Other Side of Darkness". He finds out that the woman coma victim wakes up and changes his mind after he signs the will. ... Written by Jim

George Costanza for President!!!!
4 January 2011 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

OK first off ; I'm a huge fan of Seinfeld! It's been 12. years since the show ended and i still haven't stopped watching it! This show is the best! From season 3 till season 9 the show was the best and really hilarious ! I taped almost all seasons except season 8 & 9. I run out off tapes and time. The show run really late by us and had to wake - up early in the morning and i had no time to stay late at night and taped. Waiting longer because of the commercials they were running too. Anyway today is year 2011 and i'm still watching this show! The best characters to me are Cosmo Kraner and George Costanza! I Don't like Elaine Benes that much! at first she was attractive and hot but now she isn't! She look's like my older cousin with that curly black hair and her glasses on! Jerry is great and funny i love him. This Ep# " The Comeback " is the best Ep# from Season 8 ever!!! The whole Ep# is funny and i could not stop laughing! The best part is the end! Were Karmer walks and look's so funny with his smiling face on the Tenis court and than Milosh some guy that Jerry meet throw the racket which landed on the guy with a machine - balls who shoot tennis - balls in the air who accidentally landed and hit Kramer's head. I could not stop laughing at Kramer. Than there was George and his Lines to Reilly "Oh yeah, Reilly? Well, the jerk store called. They're running out a you" I was so laughing at him and his lines he was so funny! George fly Extra from New York to Akron, Ohio just to get even with Reilly! When Reilly make George a laughing stuck in front all his members and co - workers in his meeting with stuff - members and when he change his job and start working in other state. George fly Extra there to get revenge! That is why i said George Costanza for president! George is so funny, but he dose not beat Kramer, no one dose! Well i think i said enough you all probably know the story, so i wan't be explaining it. Except about Kramer [; well he meets Elaine in the video store and he rent a " Gene movie ; " The Other Site of Darkness " about some women who landed in the coma and Kramer get's freaked out after watching the movie and he dose not wanna end like that lady did. So he decide if he ever landed in coma or get really sick and he is about to die. He want's that one of his friends turns off his machines support and plugs off the cables. So he authorized Elaine for it! But later cause he did not watch the whole movie probably only for 20.min, the women woke up and she felt fine. So he changes his mind. Jerry tells Kramer he should talk to an attorney but Jackie Chiles get him a restraining order he can't go near him nearly two hundred feet, after tho two incidents happened in the previous episodes, he humiliated Jackie, while he lost both of his cases. So he when't to see a new Lawyer "name" Shellbach! The actor who portrayed Shellbach look's like exactly the same actor who played that crazy doctor in "The Mask. " - with Jim Carrey. But i don't know if he is the same person or not. So anyway this sitcom is the best-one ever there is! Better than all the stupid sitcom shows around except ; Friends & The Fresh Prince of Bel - Air, they were my favorite's too! This episode 13 is far by the best-one ever season 8 there is! Don't miss watching it you wan't regretted! My vote is 10 out of 10 cause that episode and the show deserved!
