Storyline

Jerry scores premium tickets to a New Jersey Devils playoff game. He invites Kramer, Puddy, and Elaine along. But Jerry gets weirded out when Puddy shows up at the game and paints his face to match the team colors. Puddy gets so worked up after the game that he freaks out a visiting pastor from El Salvador, who is convinced that Puddy really is the devil. Elaine tries to convince him otherwise. Kramer enjoyed the game so much that he tries to convince Jerry to get more tickets from the guy Jerry got them from. Meanwhile, George decides to tell his girlfriend that he loves her, only to have the plans backfire on him while Kramer battles a chimpanzee at the zoo. Written by halo1k

Season 6, Episode 22, "The Face Painter"

"The Face Painter" is an excellent episode, that relies almost entirely on Jason Alexander, who delivers one of his best performances as George Constanza. George has been becoming more and more of a jerkass as the series progressed, but on "The Face Painter" he's sympathetic as well.

He's not alone, though. Patrick Warburton reprises his role as David Puddy, and where his previous appearance on "The Fusilli Jerry" was pretty tame, this time he nails the character. His interactions with Elaine are hilarious, and set the pace for most of season 9 (on which he'd be used a bit excessively - though he's still one of the funniest actors on the show). Kramer is also hilarious in a pretty dumb and inconsequential but entertaining side-plot.
