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

"You never saw people so pleased"
15 July 2016 | by juanmaffeoSee all my reviews

Easily one of the weakest episodes in Season 4, the quality drop from The Movie to this is dramatic.

It seems that this episode propels the pilot arc further but in the end it is in the same place that it was before. All the things that happen in the episode are corrected by the end of it and it is all back to where it was.

Apart from that, the humor is not good. Taking some of George's phrases out of the way, nothing else rings funny. Gail isn't really good, Elaine's story with the shoes isn't entertaining and when they used her as an object of distraction Elaine lost a lot of her character.
