My favorite Peterman centered episode.
26 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

Though I don't consider this a classic episode, it was still very funny. The main plot in this one is George won't give Susan his secret bank code, and he is feeling guilty. When he ends up eating dinner with Peterman, and Peterman learns his mother is dying George has to go with him. George tells his bed ridden, vegetable mother that his code is Bosco, and she shouts it out, and dies. Peterman is trying to figure out who Bosco is. It's a really amusing episode, with a great Jerry plot where a crippled man going to hire Jerry as his spokesman thinks Jerry is making fun of him when his foot falls asleep, a great Kramer plot of him trying to become a fireman, and a great Elaine plot where she is attracted to a man because he doesn't remember her. Though it's not one of my favorites, this is still a very good episode, especially for people who enjoyed the character of J. Peterman, because he made this episode!

My rating: Great episode. 30 mins. TV PG
