George quite likes his new girlfriend Audrey but isn't quite sure he will ever get over the fact that she has a rather large nose. When Kramer, to everyone's embarrassment, blurts out in Audrey's presence that all she needs is a nose job, she begins to seriously consider it. The results aren't what she hoped for leading to a typical reaction from George. Kramer meanwhile is still obsessing over the jacket he was forced to return to the owner two years after it was left at his mother's house. He gets Elaine involved in a scheme to get it back for him.

Nowhere near the quality of the previous episodes, "The Nose Job" is more of a return to Season 2 of "Seinfeld" and focuses more around the hapless romances of George and Jerry.

George dates a woman he really likes, whose only repellent feature is her large nose, and he attempts to convince her in the most gentle of ways to get a nose job. Jerry dates a woman he met on a elevator; a woman he loathes but a woman who provokes irresistible sexual desires.

I found the George story-line entertaining, largely due to the brilliance of Jason Alexander. He has a special, rare comedic gift to make almost any line brilliant. When he feels guilty over his superficiality towards his girlfriend, he says "Oh man, I'm going straight to hell!". This line shouldn't be that funny, especially seeing as how its been said before, but Jason Alexander makes it humorous.

I wasn't as crazy about Jerry's story-line, the chess scene between penis-Jerry and brain-Jerry wasn't very amusing to me. I also enjoyed the small subplot of Kramer and Elaine, attempting to retrieve Kramer's favourite jumper.

A good episode, disposable entertainment but not an episode worthy of long term memory.
