Storyline

Jerry visits his parents in Florida. Kramer asks Jerry to pick up some Cubans while he's there, but Kramer doesn't specify whether they are cigars or not. The next day, Jerry has an encounter with Izzy Mandelbaum, the founder of the Magic Pan crepe restaurant. Izzy challenges Jerry to a weight-lifting contest, but when Izzy takes it too far, he winds up in the hospital. Jerry goes to visit and learns that Izzy, his father and his son are nearly identical in age, and each one challenges Jerry to a weight-lifting contest. Meanwhile, back in New York, Elaine is repeatedly dragged to go see the best picture winning film "The English Patient (1996) ", but she absolutely despises it. Peterman nearly fires Elaine when she gets angry and leaves half way through the movie. Peterman gets so angry at Elaine that instead of firing her, he decides to teach her a lesson by making her go to Tunisia and live in a cave for six weeks. Jerry gets back to New York and Kramer learns that the Cubans aren't... Written by Anonymous

I hate it!

Great episode from the bizarre eight season.

Being the bizarre season it is, this is a quite normal episode, with just one story line being weird.

Elaine's story is the funniest with Julia on fire. Jerry's story starts kind of slow but picks up when the second Mandelbaum appears. George's story (the weirdest) starts off great, with George trying to be like someone who gets beautiful women to the point he can't notice he is already getting a beautiful woman, but ends pretty forced. Kramer's is the weakest with no real funny scenes.

Two great story lines, one good story line and one bad story line.
