Storyline

Jerry is going to be out of town for the weekend and Elaine gets his OK to use his apartment to host a baby shower for an old college friend, Leslie. George remembers her all too well as they had been out on a disastrous date two years before. He always regretted not telling her exactly what he thought of her. Kramer meanwhile has been after Jerry to get an illegal cable hook-up from his Russian friends. Jerry reluctantly agrees - but he has visions of the FBI descending upon him. When Jerry returns home unexpectedly after bad weather cancels his trip, he arrives in the middle of the baby shower as do the oafish Russians to install the cable. George gets his chance to tell Leslie what he thinks of her - if he can get the courage to do so. Written by garykmcd
