The Seinfeld cocktail is never to be missed in all cases., 2 July 2009
Author: ( from Lebanon

for me no one episode of Seinfeld even if it's not super stunning goes below 8 on a scale of 10 and those that are 9 of 10 or 10 of 10 are plenty. This one is an 8 but if you are a Seinfeld fan as you would love to claim then you should watch all seasons and be loyal to the whole thing and of course you won't regret it. Those people are amazingly funny even if they were silent and doing nothing. No one will ever surpass this masterpiece sitcom. I'll give you for free the Seinfeld Cocktail of this episode. Elaine's boyfriend is perfect and flawless but he has only one problem that she can't live with- believe it or not, he doesn't use exclamation marks! Would you accept such a thing? of course not Lainy. Jerry, Newman and Kramer cook something together and you shouldn't miss this one. George is fixed up for an interview by his father as a brassier salesman! Frank Costanza is in one of his finest episodes here.
