Storyline

At lunch at Monk's, George thinks he's having a heart attack and is rushed to the hospital to learn that the only thing wrong with him is tonsillitis. Kramer suggests that he should seek alternative therapies to surgery and suggest he visit his own herbalist, Tor. Jerry thinks it's all ridiculous, especially after he sees just what Tor is up to. Elaine meanwhile takes a liking to George's doctor and they go out on a date that doesn't go too well. Written by garykmcd

One of the best of season 2.
8 June 2006 | by OllieZSee all my reviews

Not much to say here really. I think this was a turning point in Seinfeld.

When George is purple in the back of an ambulance...strange but hilarious.

Seinfeld is the perfect sitcom for this very reason. It makes nothing seem so funny.

Kramer is great in this episode, as he persuades George to go to a herbal healer.

The healer reacts perfectly to the other characters. Like Curb Your Enthusiasm the comedy is superbly crafted.

Another classics, much like all the episodes.

Situational comedy at it's best.
