  • Kramer restores an old theater, George is believed to be crazy by an old friend, Elaine is unknowing acting sexy, and Jerry gets a pair of glasses and has some adventures.

    This was a very good episode. The whole thing seems to all go back to Lloyd Braun. Everybody interacts with him because he has been taken under Kramer’s wing after he got out of being in an institution for a nervous breakdown he had. Kramer thinks that when people mention words like crazy or insane that Lloyd is going to instantly snap and in turn go crazy himself….again.

    It all starts out pretty innocent when Elaine tries to avoid Lloyd, but that little action attributes to what happens to everyone else throughout the show. She tells Lloyd that Jerry wears glasses and loses a button which gives her a lot of attention.

    Jerry is hilarious when he has on that second pair of glasses. They remind me of what Harry Carey used to wear or at least the glasses that Will Farrell wore when he would play him on SNL. They are such a strong prescription that he cannot see anything out of them, this was some great stuff. I love that sort of humor.

    I think the best part was George in this one. He swears that he paid the coffee shop with a 20 dollar bill, but was incorrectly given change back and the old woman keeps showing up everywhere. Along with this obsession, dressing as King Henry, and his car catching on fire his old neighborhood friend thinks he is crazy and he shows all of the symptoms.
