  • A early classic, albeit uncharacteristic episode

    9.5
    Although Seinfeld took a while before it established the formula which would make it so successful in later years, there are some great early episodes that showed what was to come. This episode contained a sentimentality that was uncharacteristic of Seinfeld, but that was a result of pressure from NBC to get Jerry and Elaine together. Despite that, the comedy in this episode was brilliant. The scene with Jerry and Elaine on the couch, working out "The Deal" has gone down as a classic, and the scene with George and Jerry in the gift shop was also hilarious - "who puts a bench in their house", which led to Jerry giving Elaine the gift of $182 cash, and hench George giving her $91 cash. Very funny episode.
