At a movie theater's restroom, Elaine, realizing she doesn't have any toilet paper left, asks the woman in the next stall (Jami Gertz) if she has any toilet paper to spare, but the woman refuses, claiming that she "can't spare a square". Elaine pleads with the woman, but she leaves, ignoring Elaine. The woman returns to her seat, and is revealed as Jerry's girlfriend, Jane.

"Yeah... for a while"
30 July 2016 | by juanmaffeoSee all my reviews

A great episode with a few flaws.

For starters, I don't see the point behind making Jane, Jerry's girlfriend of the week, a phone-sex woman. In the end it doesn't leave any explanation or good resolution, so it only seems like a cheap way to connect the stories. Aside from that, it is not as funny as other classics from this season.

That being said, this episode does some good things. Tony is one Elaine's best boyfriend of the week and his story with George and Kramer is hilarious. We also get a look at a more superficial and flawed side of the Elaine character. The Jane story shines when it revolves around Jerry and Elaine and not around Kramer. Seeing Jerry trying to set Elaine and Jane apart is really funny and the few interactions these two have are the highlights of the episode.

Another great addition to the ever evolving Season 5.
