The Mafia girlfriend., 11 October 2009
Author: Sirus_the_Virus from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The Plot:Elaine thinks that some one that she works with is faking being deaf. Jerry has a hard time getting into The Friars club after The Flying Santos brothers takes his jacket. Kramer starts following Leonardo Da Vinci's sleeping schedule and eventually falls asleep while having sex with his mafia girlfriend.

The Friars club is an unforgettable episode. I have seen this episode so many times. Rob Schneider guest stars in this episode as the deaf guy. The funniest situation is the one with the deaf guy or the one where Krmaer falls asleep during sex. Everyone of the situations in the episode are hilarious. This is a great episode.
