Now we get the "creme de la creme" of Season's 4 streak of great episode. This episode begins the mini-streak of four continuous classic episodes that includes The Contest, The Airport and ends with The Pick. All amazing episodes.

Apart from being great on its own, this one does a lot of job tying things together. On one side, it continues the arc of the season (the creation of the pilot) and gives substantial material to the arc (Susan getting fired, the conception of the pilot's story) and on the other side we get two stories that will set up two mini arcs respectively. One being the incident with Ping and the other being Jerry starting a relationship with Marla The Virgin.

As an individual episode it has great memorable moments and big laughs throughout. Jerry and George have a great conversation about George's relationship with Susan, we get a delightful George's reaction to Susan getting fired.

In summation, a great episode that apart from being amazing on its own, gains more credit for its importance in the season.

PD: loved the little detail of Elaine not getting the door opening. Little eggs that make the show much more realistic.
