  • Episode Description
  • Elaine gets a blind date with the guy from her wake-up service; the only problem is he likes dogs. A bit of grapefruit pulp, from Jerry's healthy breakfast, gets into George's eye and causes problems for him when his winks keep getting misinterpreted. Jerry's healthy diet conflicts with his dating of Elaine's cousin. Kramer promises a sick boy, that New York Yankee, Paul O'Neill will hit two home runs for him, so he can get back a birthday card that he sold based on George's wink.moreless

  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (15)

    • Jerry: Hey, salad's got nuttin' on this mutton. Holly: That is so funny, did you just make that up? Jerry: I wish I could take credit for it. It's actually a line my butcher uses when we're chewing the fat.

    • Kramer: Two? Sure kid, yeah. But then you gotta promise you'll do something for me. Bobby: I know. Get out of this bed one day and walk again. Kramer: Yeah, that would be nice. But I really just need this card.

    • Holly: Do you always stuff meat in your pocket? Jerry: Uh, sometimes I use the sofa.

    • Elaine: Thanks for mutton.

    • Holly: So, is the beef the way you like it? Jerry: I usually like mine with an angioplasty.

    Trivia (4)

    • Jerry doesn't realise that to avoid eating the pork chops he could've told her that being Jewish, he can't eat pork.

    • Billy Martin was the manager for the Yankees for a total of six times. Five of those were under a 10 year period from 79 until late 88, but he was always replaced after the first mandate. He has also been connected to the Yankees for a long while before. He died in 89. This might be why Steinbrenner mentions his name so many times when he speaks about all the persons he has let go over the years.

    • Jerry has a napkin tucked into his shirt collar while he's eating the mutton. He removes the napkin, spits some of the mutton into it, and hides the napkin in his coat. The camera shows him without the napkin in his shirt, shifts over to Holly, and when it comes back to Jerry, the napkin has returned.

    • When Kramer is talking to Paul O'Neil in the Yankees clubhouse O'Neil is buttoning his unifrom shirt and we see him button it all the way to the top. A few seconds later we cut back and he is buttoning it up again. Seems like a case of bad editing.

    Allusions (2)

    • After Jerry calls Kramer "Jughead", Cosmo proceeds to refer to Jerry as "Archie", Elaine as "Veronica" and George as "Mr. Weatherbee", which is all a reference to characters in Archie comics.

    • The promise to have Paul O'Neill hit 2 HR's is borrowed from the movie Pride of the Yankees
