  • How a movie can ruin your day!

    Elaine and her boyfriend are seeing The English Patient. She absolutely hates the movie. Jerry is visiting his parents in Florida and Kramer hooks him up with Cubans. And by Cubans, we mean people, not cigars! George meets a woman named Danielle who almost mistakes him as her boyfriend. George gets interested and "goes out" with her.

    While Elaine hears everyone loving The English Patient and ends out going with her boss, J. Peterman, Jerry meets Izzy Mandelbaum, an old athlete who ends up breaking his back, twice and is in the hospital. As Izzy Sr. and Jr. (who are at least 10 years in age difference) visit him and end up breaking their back trying to lift a TV, Jerry realizes that their ownership of a crape place will be closing. But Jerry gets this idea. Kramer finds out that the Cubans are Dominicans so his investment is dropped and he doesn't know what to do, which makes Jerry getting them to roll crapes but it turns out poorly as Kramer states "You got to get real Cubans"

    Geroge tries to see Danielle again but finds out that she has to take care of her real boyfriend, named Neil. She leaves him and thinks Neil won, but no, George unplugs his IV bag.

    The episode ends as Elaine has to travel to Tunisia where the film was taken place but the Cubans hijack the plane to Cuba which drives Elaine nuts, once again.
