Storyline

George has decided he's made a terrible mistake in breaking up with Susan. He moans and groans and is generally driving everybody crazy. Against everyone's advice he decides to tell her he made a mistake . No sooner are they back together than he decides he's the one who made the mistake. Elaine decides to put her picture on her Christmas cards and Kramer agrees to be the photographer. Only problem is that she exposes just a little too much of herself. Jerry meanwhile is dating the model he recently met on a flight and things seem to be going nicely....until she sees him picking his nose, or so she thinks at any rate. Written by garykmcd

Brilliant Parody of Shylock's Speech from Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice
19 July 2015 | by ealatimerSee all my reviews

"The Pick" blurs the lines between pop culture and high art, comedy and profound cultural commentary. Jerry's spoof on Shylock's famous speech from Act 3, Scene 1 of William Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice--"do we not bleed?" raises interesting questions about the portrayal of Jewishness in popular culture, especially as connected to the Jewish stereotype of a big nose. In fact, most of the subplots in the episode have some connection to the tension between Jewish identity and the experience of Anglo culture. What is comedic on the surface gains depth in literary context, making Shakespeare's text accessible to a broader audience and demonstrating how discourse about Jewishness and cultural stereotypes is alive and well in popular media. This is a good reference: http://structureseinplay.blogspot.com/2009/06/moses-was-picker.html.
