Quotes

Frank Costanza: Let me understand, you got the hen, the chicken and the rooster. The rooster goes with the chicken. So, who's having sex with the hen?
George Costanza: Why don't we talk about it another time.
Frank Costanza: But you see my point here? You only hear of a hen, a rooster and a chicken. Something's missing!
Mrs. Ross: Something's missing all right.
Mr. Ross: They're all chickens. The rooster has sex with all of them.
Frank Costanza: That's perverse.

The Plot: When George's parents and Susan's parents meet, The Costanza's take the rye that they brought back. So George hires Kramer, who is taking care of a horse ride business for a weekend, to take Susan's parents away for a while so he can get back the rye. George sends Jerry to but the rye, but an old woman buys it before he does. Elaine starts dating a very cool performer, but he is soon under the impression that they are hot and heavy.

The Rye is yet another classic episode. I don't think I haven't laughed at one Seinfeld episode yet. They are all fantastic, and will be classics forever. I own every season on DVD, and really enjoy watching The Rye a lot.
