Storyline

Jerry hosts the annual PBS pledge drive and asks George to get some of the Yankee players to appear on the show. George comes through and gets Danny Tartabul to appear on the show. Kramer discovers that Jerry has been getting some birthday cards from his Nana with money inside. He cashes them in and suddenly Nana's bank account is overdrawn. Nana then goes missing. Jerry gets in trouble with Elaine's friends (one of whom has an unusually high voice) when Elaine starts a rumor that the wife was hitting on Jerry. George thinks everybody is giving him the finger and decides to follow one offender while driving Danny Tartabul to the pledge drive. Kramer volunteers to become a phone-answerer for PBS and Elaine discovers that Mr. Pitt eats his candy bars with a knife and fork, starting an unusual trend. Written by halo1k

Another classic
15 March 2007 | by (Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

I think this another of the great Seinfeld episodes with great interconnected story lines. The whole thread about eating a Snickers bar with a knife and fork -- starting with Mr. Pitt, moving on to George, then various Yankees, and finally everybody everywhere -- is hilarious. Jerry cashing his grandmother's checks, which bounce and cause her to get up before the crack of dawn to go to the bank, is also funny. It also contains one of my favorite lines ever, which is when Elaine thinks her friend's "high talker" boyfriend is calling Jerry's house and she says "Jerry doesn't want to talk to you, nobody wants to talk to you. . . so why don't you just DROP DEAD!" but it's really Jerry's grandmother.
