Storyline

The gang has various encounters with a man named Jimmy, who talks about himself in the 3rd person. Elaine asks Jimmy to go to the benefit for the Able Mentally Challenged Adults organization starring Mel Torme. Thanks to Jimmy's shoes and getting too much Novocaine at Whatley's office, Kramer is mistaken for a mentally challenged man when he encounters the head of the AMCA. Jerry suspects Tim Whatley and his assistant are using patients for sexual pleasures when he finds pornographic magazines in Whatley's waiting room and thinks that he was violated while under the gas. George cuts a deal with Jimmy to sell Jimmy's shoes, but Jimmy gets injured thanks to Kramer's drooling. The deal, plus some spicy chicken, also helps Wilhelm accuse George of stealing some of the Yankee's batting equipment. Written by halo1k

Quotes

[first lines]
Jerry Seinfeld: Buying shoes is one of the great shopping challenges. Ever seen someone put on a new pair of shoes? They turn into a zombie once they start walking around. "Yeah, these are pretty good." Then they have that little 1-foot-high mirror there. What is that? To see what cats will think of my shoes? What is that angle? Bum passed out on the curb. "Hey, what do you think of these? -- I just got them. I've seen them from that angle myself."
