Storyline

Susan Ross invites George to dinner to meet her parents and he's worried about what to say when the subject of the now destroyed cabin comes up. Susan's father doesn't take it very well. When a metal box containing letters from author John Cheever is retrieved, a Ross family secret is revealed. After Jerry makes a remark to Elaine about her chatty assistant, the woman quits forcing Jerry to apologize and take her out for a drink. It doesn't go well. In need of more Cuban cigars, Kramer visits their offices at the UN. Written by garykmcd

"That's absolutely filthy"
29 June 2016 | by juanmaffeoSee all my reviews

Another solid entrance in Season 4 streak of great episodes.

Something I got while watching this episode is how disconnected Kramer's life is in this couple of episodes with the rest of the gang. He always has an unrelated story and the rest has a somewhat connected story. It's not that it hurts the episode but it definitely hurts Kramer's relationship with the gang.

This episode feels like a filler but it is a great one. I say filler because nothing transcendental to the arc really happens or nothing memorable happens. Jerry and George start writing the sitcom and that (with the addition of the cabin's aftermath and Kramer's story with the Cubans) is the only bit of continuation we get.

That being said it has the side story of Jerry's situation with Elaine's secretary and that provides one of the best conversations of the season.
