Storyline

Jerry is astounded when Kramer tells him he's managed to kiss a girl Jerry dated several times but only ever got a handshake from. The woman is fascinated with Elaine's expensive shoes which drives Elaine crazy. Jerry and George meanwhile are trying to finalize the script for their new sitcom and have a meeting with Russell from NBC. Everything falls apart after Russell catches George staring at his 15 year-old daughter's cleavage. It's now up to the buxom Elaine Benes to come to their rescue. Written by garykmcd

Everything about Seinfeld is perfect

If you look at all Seinfeld's part you find genius everywhere. Haven't you always wondered why this episode was called this and not that? Like for instance, why was this episode called the shoes and not the cleavage? I am kidding but Jerry says in this one: "Looking at cleavage is like looking at the sun. You don't stare at it. It's too risky. Ya get a sense of it and then you look away." Well, you should watch this scene where George and Jerry are supposed to meet with Russel in NBC to discuss to discuss the script for the pilot and they see his daughter denise richards' cleavage and Russell catches them looking. There's a funny dialogue between George and Jerry that you really don't want to miss. There's also this scene where they're trying to write the script, you don't want to miss this one either. In this scene they try to write some lines for Elaine and both surrender saying that they can't write for women hence the reason why Elaine wasn't in the pilot episode.
