Storyline

George dates a woman who has a son. She invites him to her son's birthday party. While at the party, a fire breaks out in the kitchen. George screams "FIRE!!!" and knocks down the kids and the old lady as he cowardly tries to make his escape. The clown (not Bozo) puts out the fire with his big shoe. Meanwhile, over at Pendant Publishing, Elaine learns that she's up for a very nice promotion. But her main competition, Toby, is working with Kramer on his coffee table book. The three head over to the comedy club where Jerry is doing an important set where a writer from Entertainment Weekly will be present to do a review of the show for the magazine. Toby heckles Jerry. After Jerry gets the magazine and sees the mostly negative review of his show, he decides to do something unheard of - heckle the heckler. After he goes to Toby's office to heckle her, Toby gets so distraught that she leaves the building and a street sweeper severs her pinkie toe. Kramer gets the toe and hijacks a bus to ...

Season 5, Episode 19, "The Fire"

Somehow, "The Fire" never stood out for me as a classic Seinfeld episode; partly because the actress playing Toby is quite annoying, and partly because nothing very interesting happens to Elaine or Jerry throughout the episode, and for that matter, not to Kramer either - for the most part.

Two scenes, though, are enough to make the episode memorable. One is George at his girlfriend-of-the-week's (Parker Lewis's Miss Musso!) son's birthday, and his hilarious talk with the firefighters afterwords. The other is Kramer's story of his retrieval of Toby's toe and his busjacking, and that scene itself is one of the best moments in the show's entire run, and enough to make it a classic.
