Season 5, Episode 11, "The Conversion" "The Conversion" isn't one of
the strongest or most consistent episodes in Seinfeld's fifth season,
but it is one of the funniest. George's and Kramer's story lines don't
make an ounce of sense, but they're so funny that you just can't
resist. Michael Richards and Jason Alexander both deliver
side-splittingly hilarious performances.
Jerry and Elaine are far less impressive, their stories interact but not in a very interesting way, and they feel more like season 2 material. That stops the episode short of being truly hilarious all the way, but it still has its share of classic moments.
I just love the twists of events they use in this show and they are as
good in this episode as in all the others. Jerry finds a fungus cream
in his girlfriend's cabinet and gives it to Elaine because her
boyfriend is a podiatrist. Jerry also makes fun of podiatrists in this
episode saying that they are not real doctors and that George can
become one if he goes to podiatry school. Meanwhile, Kramer meets a nun
and dumps her later because she decides to forsake religion for his
love! Jerry finds out that the cream is for his girlfriend's cat and
Elaine's boyfriend finds the cream in her cabinet.
Of course George who is the star of this episode as in all other episodes decides to convert to Latvian orthodox for a lady.
George Costanza: You know, in the cab on the way over here, I actually thought about converting. Jerry: To Latvian Orthodox? George Costanza: Yeah, why not, what do I care... Jerry: Ya know, it's not like changing toothpastes. Elaine: I think it would be romantic. George Costanza: Really? Elaine: Yeah, it's like Edward the Eighth abdicating the throne and marrying Mrs. Simpson. Ooh. George Costanza: King Edward. (snapping fingers) George Costanza: Like King Edward, Jerry! Jerry: Yeah well King Edward didn't live in Queens with Frank and Estelle Costanza.
