Storyline

At lunch in their favorite restaurant, George thinks he's having a heart attack and is rushed to the hospital to learn that the only thing wrong with him is tonsillitis. Kramer suggests that he should seek alternative therapies to surgery and suggest he visit his own herbalist, Tor. Jerry thinks it's all ridiculous, especially after he sees just what Tor is up to. Elaine meanwhile takes a liking to George's doctor and they go out on a date - that doesn't go too well. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

When George thinks he's having a heart attack, an ambulance takes him to "Manhattan Memorial". The footage shows the ambulance speeding under elevated subway tracks. That El would be either in the Bronx or Brooklyn, certainly not on the east side of Manhattan, where the show takes place. See more »
