Jerry and Elaine visit his parents in Florida and to attend a dinner in honor of his father. They meet the neighbors, Jack and Doris, and after Jerry admires Jack's astronaut pen, he offers it to him, which Jerry gladly accepts. He didn't really want to give it to him which leads to non-stop gossip. It all leads to an interesting dinner. Elaine meanwhile has an uncomfortable night on the pull-out bed - the lack of air conditioning doesn't help - hurting her back. Desperate to go back to New York, she is told by a chiropractor she has to stay for another 5 days. Written by

The pen shown in this episode is the bullet pen, made by Fisher. Although it does write upside down and in extreme temperatures, the bullet was not the pen used by NASA and taken into space. It was Fisher's AG7, a retractable pen and the first one invented by Fisher in 1966, that NASA used on all manned space flights. See more
