The theme here is competition. Morty and Izzy compete over which of them is the Best Dad. Izzy and Izzy Jr. compete with Jerry about weight-lifting. Elaine competes with her friends over their opinions of the movie "The English Patient" - apparently everyone in the world loved it and thought it romantic, while Elaine thought it sucked. Mr. Peterman is competitive enough that when he learns Elaine hates the movie, he fires her. George competes with Neil over Danielle. In the hospital, Neil whispers through his bandages, "I win," and George has to agree. A moment later though, behind Neil, George yanks the IV free of the IV bag. Kramer competes with the businessman who wanted to invest in Cuban cigar-makers and tries to finesse his way out of the realization that they are actually Dominicans. See more
