Storyline

Elaine loans Mr. Pitt's expensive tennis racket to an executive from Doubleday who hints there may be a job opening for Elaine soon. When the woman injures her arm, Elaine can't quite get the racket back. Jerry's girlfriend never smiles or laughs at his jokes but her roommate laughs at everything he says so he contemplates the switch. George comes up with an idea as to how he might get away with it. George's girlfriend, a model, eats like a horse but never puts on weight. Kramer suggests she might be bulimic. The gang learns Kramer's first name, thanks to his mom Babs. Written by garykmcd

Another great seinfeld episode
5 October 2016 | by markjayaweera2003See all my reviews

This is another fantastic Seinfeld episode. Seinfeld created some of the most entertaining American television of the 1990s. A show about nothing focusing on the lives of 4 people who we could all relate to. This episode in fact nearly all the Seinfeld episodes of the first 6 seasons, created some of the funniest inventive comedic television. Certainly one of the best things to come out of American Television in the 1990s. The humor of Seinfeld will keep people laughing for generations to come. Also as a side note we see a guest appearance of Charlotte Lewis. Who 9 years earlier memorably partnered eddie murphy in that forgotten 80s cult classic - The Golden Child.
