Elaine and Keith Hernandez are still seeing one another and Jerry can't quite come to grips with his emotions. When Keith asks him to help move his furniture, everyone thinks their friendship has gone to a new level. Elaine likes Keith, at least until she learns about one of his personal habits. When Kramer and Newman finally meet Hernandez, the truth of the spitting incident is revealed. George meanwhile latches on to yet another scheme to keep his unemployment benefits flowing - dating the employment counselor's unmarried daughter. Written by garykmcd

2 December 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

The Boyfriend comes to its end with this second twenty-minute batch of highly imaginative and entertaining gags, comprising relationship comedy, heartfelt slapstick and THAT spot-on JFK spoof.

Picking up from Part 1, Jerry is more unhappy than ever about Elaine's dealings with Keith Hernandez, although he needn't worry: since it's Elaine we're talking about, things are bound to go wrong. George has to find a new way to continue receiving unemployment checks, and Jerry's theory about a "second spitter" (the series' version of the second hit-man in the Kennedy assassination) regarding Kramer and Newman's embarrassing encounter with Hernandez a few years earlier is further investigated.

Is there really anything to say about the second episode part of the episode that hasn't already been mentioned in relation to Part One? No, not much so. Suffice to say, the conclusion to the story is just as hilarious as the build-up, with a special mention for how the JFK mockery plays out at the end. It's smart, quotable, a TV landmark, yada yada yada. Long story short: it's Seinfeld, thus an invitation to watch it many, many times, as always.
