  • Absolutely hilarious! George battles with an old man for an apartment, Elaine finds out that she has a big head, Kramer acts like a dog, and Jerry makes an alliance with Newman.

    This was a great episode. Kramer was really funny as he turned into a dog. He wouldn’t go to a real doctor about the cough he had. When he found a dog with the problem he decided that he would go to a Vet and that is where he ended up getting medicine. The part where Jerry gives him his medicine was really funny and at the end when he was acting like Lassie was great too. He did a really good job playing that role.

    Elaine is out on a blind date but she gets a message from the waiter that her date cannot make it because he had been stabbed. This attracts her to him and she decides that she must meet this guy. When a similar incident happens she finds out that he is a ‘bad breaker upper.’ When Elaine breaks up with him he tells her that she has a big head. This is funny because she brushes it off at first but it starts to bother her when a lot of freak this start to happen.

    Jerry’s part was alright, but I didn’t think it was as good as George and Kramer. Jerry helped Newman deliver some mail so he could possibly get a transfer. He didn’t get the transfer because one of his bosses knew it wasn’t him doing the work. The funny part was that he delivered mail too well. Too many people got their mail and that was how they knew it wasn’t Newman.

    The best part in this episode was George. He didn’t get the apartment across the hall because of an old man who had a sob story about being on the Andrea Doria. When George finds out that it wasn’t a huge disaster like the old man would like to think he tells is sad life to the tenants association. This was great because he told stories from old episodes that were classic. In a twist of fate the man who was the ‘bad breaker upper’ got the place, but not because of his life story but because he gave the super some cash.
