    Absolutely incredible 30 minutes of comedy built around a socially unacceptable premise, never once uttered by one of the actors but understood by everyone who sees the show this show, which is comedy (not just Seinfeld) never bettered.
    There are too many memorable moments in this episode to remember from George informing his giggling friends his mother had just "caught him" to Kramer ruling himself out of the contest.
    The most impressive aspect of the show is how it took the previous weeks classic story of the virgin and wove that so neatly into the show to help heighten the tension. Another memorable scene to be reproduced later (The Outing) with a different twist is Goeroges' visit to the hospital to see his ailing mother, giving him pleasure and frustration in equal measures.
    Written by Larry David, this is perfect television.
