Storyline

Elaine's ex-boyfriend is recovering in the hospital and has surgery. The gang goes to visit. Kramer gets the idea to paint his apartment to simulate the feel of a ski lodge. While at the hospital, Kramer's concern about the operation gets him and Jerry in to watch. But when Kramer sneaks in candy and forces it on Jerry, Jerry starts a chain reaction that causes the Junior Mints to land in Elaine's ex-boyfriend. Jerry thinks he may have killed the guy while George, who learns that he has recently come into some money, decides to invest in the ex-boyfriend's artwork. Written by halo1k

First, this was the first episode Elaine got applause on her entrance. In this episode, Jerry can't remember his girlfriend name and the only tip he has is that it rhymes with a female organ. You can imagine the comedy now. God, just tell me who would have thought of something like this to write for a sitcom, only geniuses like Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld and of course genius actors like Jason, Richards, and Dreyfus. Elaine visits an old boyfriend in the hospital who was fat and after the surgery slimmed down, that she wants to get back with him and George, my Georgi decides to buy his art after he learns that he got some kind of infection. Why? of course not because he wants to encourage him. This is not our George. Our George thinks that if the artist die, his art will be sold for high prices. Of course the doctor later says that the patient was saved by something from above (referring to Godly intervention) that cleaned the infection. We all know though that it's the junior mint which fell from Kramer and Jerry while they were watching the surgery. Oh my God, if I keep watching this work of art until the end of my days, I tell you I can never get bored.
