Storyline

In this hour-long episode, Jerry performs the biggest show of his life in Atlantic City. He receives a rather generous pay check for the event, and decides to buy his father a Cadillac. Unfortunately, doing so puts Morty in the hot seat with the condo board of directors, where he serves as president. Morty is accused of stealing money from the board, and ultimately gets removed from his post as president and kicked out of the condo. Meanwhile, thanks to Elaine, George can score a date with "My Cousin Vinny" star Marisa Tomei but Elaine objects because of George's engagement with Susan. Kramer turns the tables on the cable company when they want to disconnect his service. Written by halo1k

Greatness!

This was the first episode of Seinfeld I had watched in full and it happened to be an hour long special! It was such a load of fun and full of laughs, even though I didn't really know the characters too well. Plus we get to see Marisa Tomei make a cameo appearance out of nowhere!

The story revolves around a few things, the main part being that Jerry buys his father a Cadillac after landing a fortune at a big gig. But those at the condo where his father lives, and is the President of, believe he has used funds from the office to buy it.

Meanwhile, George becomes obsessed with Marisa Tomei and Kramer has a hilarious run-in with a cable guy. The chase is just fantastic! There are plenty of gags here and I recommend anyone new to Seinfeld watch this episode to get a feel for it. 9/10
