Storyline

George gets Steinbrenner hooked on eggplant calzones from a local Italian restaurant. But George gets banned from the restaurant when he's accused of stealing from the tip jar. He then asks Kramer to pick up the calzones, but Kramer gets kicked out when he tries to pay with pennies. George's last resort in getting the calzones is Newman who wants a cut of every delivery. Meanwhile, Kramer will only wear clothing if it's straight from the dryer. Written by halo1k

Trivia

Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld) decides a box of Cuban cigars to be an appropriate wedding present for George, but when he was given a box of the cigars by Susan's (Heidi Swedberg) father in season 4, he disliked them so much he gave them to Kramer (Michael Richards). See more »

Goofs

When George goes to Newman's apartment to "drop off the calzone money for the week," Newman is home because "it's raining" (which it is, confirmed in the next scene when Kramer goes out in the rain to buy the replacement calzones). But George (having just come from outside with a raincoat on) is completely dry he carries no umbrella, and no wet spots appear anywhere on his person at all. See more »

Funny episode.
27 January 2007 | by TOMNELSee all my reviews

This is a really great episode, all except for the Kramer plot which is amusing, but a little bit silly. In this episode, George becomes Steinbrener's pet when he lets him have a taste of his calzone, and they begin eating calzones every day for lunch. Elaine in this episode, is dating a man who won't say that they are going out, but takes her on dates, and has found a dating loophole. Kramer has a lot of change and is cooking his shirts in ovens. The Jerry plot is very small and deals with him getting Cuban cigars from Elaine's boyfriend. This is a really funny episode, and has some really great moments, like George Steinbrener's extremely long and silly speeches. Though this is not a perfect episode, it is really good episode.

My rating: Excellent episode. 30 mins. TVPG
