Storyline

Jerry's new agent thinks he's a celebrity who needs his hand held on every little decision. After she tells him that the pilot who flew the plane to Ithaca is in the audience, Jerry freaks out. Kramer goes to the Diplomat's Club to meet up with Jerry and winds up gambling with a Texas business man on which plane is going to arrive first. Meanwhile, Mr. Pitt puts Elaine in his will, and Mr. Pitt's lawyer has reason to suspect that Elaine is up to something. Written by halo1k

"I'm freaking out!"

Season 6, Episode 21, "The Diplomat's Club"

"The Diplomat's Club" is an excellent episode, one of my favorites in season 6 which, unlike most of the latter part of the season, relies on excellent writing and acting rather that gags and visual humor. Jerry and Elaine both deliver some of their best scenes; George and Kramer are terrific as well, and surprisingly much more subtle in their performance than anywhere else in the latter seasons.

The episode also features excellent work from a couple of recurring supporting actors. Ian Abercrombie makes his final appearance, and one of his best, as Mr. Pitt; Tom Wright as Mr. Morgan is a great straight-man for George. And That 70's Show's Debra Jo Rupp makes her first appearance as Jerry's overprotective agent. An excellent and underrated episode all around, maybe the last of the original classics.
