Storyline

At a movie theater's restroom, Elaine, realizing she doesn't have any toilet paper left, asks the woman in the next stall (Jami Gertz) if she has any toilet paper to spare, but the woman refuses, claiming that she "can't spare a square". Elaine pleads with the woman, but she leaves, ignoring Elaine. The woman returns to her seat, and is revealed as Jerry's girlfriend, Jane. Elaine is shown returning to her seat, with her new boyfriend Tony (played by Dan Cortese). The two women tell their dates about what had just happened. At Jerry's apartment, Kramer walks in, asking to use Jerry's phone. Jerry accuses Kramer of using it to call a telephone sex line. Elaine comes into the apartment, and describes to Jerry the incident that occurred at the movie theatre. Jerry realizes that the woman that Elaine was bickering for toilet paper was Jane. He tries to defend Jane, while not letting Elaine know that it was her. Meanwhile, George becomes enamored of Elaine's boyfriend, claiming that "He's ... Written by Tummy AuGratin

this is one of my best - the 12th in season five and number 76. I mark my favorites
2 July 2009 | by (Lebanon) – See all my reviews

Each one of the four is a star in this one and that's what makes it one of the very best episodes.

This episode is really juicy. Elaine is in some toilet and ran out of toilet paper so she asks the lady in the next stall if she can give her any and the other lady answers : " can't spare a square" and leaves Elaine to her problem. Later on the lady turns out to Jerry's new girlfriend and when Jerry knows, he tries to keep them away from each others until one day Elaine buzz Jerry and comes all of a sudden while the Jane (the lady from the stall) is with him and here comes the very funny part - Jerry tells Jane that her mouth smells very bad and gives her like so much gum to change her voice pitch. Kramer asks Jerry to use his phone and the latter accuses him of using the phone for sex. When Kramer gets to meet Jane and hears her voice, he tells Jerry that her voice is similar to sex-phone girl Erika but Jerry doesn't believe him so Kramer tells him that he has a date with Erika so to prove to Jerry that she is Jane. Now Elaine's boyfriend is so handsome and Jerry doubts that Elaine is only going out with him because he is attractive. George becomes friend with Tony and when they two plans to go climbing together, Kramer comes in and it turns out that Tony invited him. George of course being hysterical and sick and of course my favorite character reacts jealously because he thinks that Kramer might become more friends with Tony than him. So they go climbing and Tony asks Kramer to tie the robe for him but Kramer gives this mission to George and distracts him by asking for food so Tony goes up unaware of the robe untied and falls on the rocks. Elaine afraid that this can deform his face in one way or another rushes to him and he tells her that the doctor can't tell now if his face will be damaged permanently or not. And there are so many more. Just two words for you : Watch it.
