A woman is eavesdropping on the conversation that Elaine has with Jerry and George at the coffee shop. Elaine decides to give the woman the impression that Jerry and George are a homosexual couple. Unfortunately that woman is a reporter from NYU who is doing an interview with Jerry for the school newspaper. She goes to Jerry's apartment and the suspicions are confirmed when Jerry and George get in a fight over a piece of fruit. She publishes an article using the angle that Jerry and George are a homosexual couple. Things get even worse when Jerry's birthday gifts don't help his case any when Kramer gives Jerry a faulty two-line phone and George gets Jerry tickets to the musical "Guys And Dolls". George doesn't help his case any when he uses the homosexual angle of the article to get out of a bad relationship and his mother freaks out and is admitted to the hospital. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Did You Know?
When Estelle Harris
(Estelle Costanza) wasn't available for one scene in this episode, The The Nanny
(1993)'s Fran Drescher
stood in for her in the hospital scene. By having Drescher fill in, they could record the laughter from the audience and use that for when Harris was available to film. That scene with Fran Drescher is available to be seen on the Inside Look in the Season 4 DVD set. See more
