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 »

Quotes

Jerry: [Watching two paramedics fighting] All this over a Chuckle.
Cosmo Kramer: What's a Chuckle?
Jerry: It's a jelly candy, comes in five flavors.

"My name is Bob!"

I noticed that Kramer is one character in the first seasons and a complete different one in the last ones. I mean, on this seasons he was an eccentric person but with a normal life. The late Kramer is an abomination of a human being that seems that jumped out of a cartoon. And this is a great example of how to write Kramer right.

George has a medical issue and Kramer has a friend (one of his many eccentric friends) who does alternative medicine. He's not swimming in the f-ucking East River (S08). Here he is a normal human being with relatable situations.

The episode in itself is really funny (with Jason on fire) and has some great supporting characters.
