Elaine and George are fascinated to learn that a massage from a physical therapist can be claimed on health insurance if they have a doctor's note. Jerry offers to get his dentist friend to provide a note for them. George is enthusiastic about it all until he learn that his massage will be given by Raymond, leading him afterward to wonder if he is gay. Jerry is having his own problems with his masseuse who now fears he's a child molester. Kramer meanwhile has trouble convincing everyone that he saw Joe DiMaggio in coffee shop. Written by garykmcd

Season 3 Kicks Off in high gear!
7 December 2006 | by (terra incognito) – See all my reviews

Single Favorite Line: (George, in a brilliant non-sequitur) "I don't even like to use urinals - I've always been a Stall Man"

Notable Guest Stars: Jeff Lester (as Raymond, the masseur), Ralph Bruneau (as the dentist)

Memorable Exchange: Raymond (giving George his massage): "How did you hurt this?" - George (growing increasingly uncomfortable and discombobulated): "I don't know." - R: "You don't know?" - G: "No." - R: "But you just told me-" - G: "-What?" - R: "The hamstring" - G: "-Korea" - R: "You hurt it in Korea?" - G:"What?" - R:"The hamstring" - G: "Korea" - R: "How" - G: "Hamstring" - R: "How did you hurt the hamstring?" - G: "H-h-h-ho-tel"

Key Topics: *Homosexuality *Massage *Missing Children *Dental Ethics *Sporting Men *Masturbation *Donut Dunking

Part I Didn't Like: Jerry's masseuse is irrationally scared he will snatch her little boy, merely because he mentions a missing kid case.

Extra Nice Touch: The classic tune ' Joltin' Joe DiMaggio', plays at end credits.
