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

Elaine Reduced To A Sex Object & Works It For Humor!
12 May 2019 | by fleck05-485-208981See all my reviews

When George gets caught looking at Denise Richard's chest (22 year old Richards trying to play a 15 year old daughter of NBC's President) Jerry points out looking at cleavage is like looking at the sun: you don't stare at it, it's too risky. You get a sense of it then look away! That can be tough since, as Jerry points out, men love cleavage (and women love shoes). They decide to tempt the NBC President by having Elaine parade nearby with a low cut top and push up bra. Julia-Louis Dreyfus showcases her chest in a manner more humorous than sexy. This was when shows were written honestly to our baser instincts... ie funny. Fortunately there are reruns and the Seinfeld and occasionally new episodes of Larry David's show (Seinfeld's creator). Larry David show doesn't bend to the whims of SJW's, either, as his life regularly goes wrong in each episode. If you liked 80's and 90's comedies you'll like this episode. If shows that aren't PC trigger you, you may want to skip this one.
