  • Elaine accidentally flirts with recently institutionalized Lloyd Braun and Jerry accidentally orders $100 worth of gum that he doesn't even like very much. George is a victim of circumstance and is perceived as crazy.

    One of the most intricate and well-written episodes in the entire series. The viewer is constantly bounced back and forth between storylines that at first seem unrelated but become very intricately woven by the episode's end. This is typical of Seinfeld, however, this episode more than most represents the series. The viewer is continually cracking up immensely due to the continued ways in which George is perceived as crazy. This episode in one in which George steals the show, even if it is named after the gum, involving Jerry, Kramer, Elaine, and Lloyd Braun. Without question one of my all-time favourite episodes in the entirity of the series. Makes you want to stand up and applaud at the episode's end.
