Attractive Applicant


George is authorized by the Yankees to get himself a secretary and he's decided not to hire an attractive woman as it would be too distracting. It doesn't really make a difference. Elaine is having a problem with an expensive dress she's recently bought and is convinced that the store is using 'thin' mirrors. Jerry thinks he sees his dry cleaner wearing his jacket at the movies. Kramer gets Uma Thurman's phone number and writes it down on Jerry's dry cleaning ticket. Written by garykmcd

"It's definitely do-able."
4 October 2011 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Season 6, Episode 9, "The Secretary" "The Secretary" is a good filler episode, one of the weaker in season 6 but it has its share of great moments. Steve Hytner makes a glorious return as Kenny Bania, the comedian we love to hate, and Vicki Lewis (from NewsRadio) is hilarious as George's secretary Ada.

The main plot deals with George and his new secretary and it's hilarious; the other story lines, unfortunately, aren't really explored as well as they could be. Kramer has some very funny moments, but he doesn't get to do much in the episode; Elaine's storyline hardly gets any laughs at all.
