Episode Recap

Jerry is sitting at home watching a space B-Movie and later when he's in bed he sleepily writes down something funny. The next day he, George and Elaine are eating at Monk's and Jerry tries to make sense of what he wrote. George, after using an outside cucumber in his salad, says that he's having a heart attack so Jerry calls for the ambulance. While in a hospital bed with a nose plug, Jerry comes in and starts asking if he can have George's things when he goes, Elaine then enters and starts flirting with the handsome doctor who tells George that he needs a tonsillectomy, leading Kramer to recommend a holistic healer as a better and less expensive choice.

The healer gives him a strange potion that causes him to go purple and whilst in the ambulance going to the hospital; it crashes. Meanwhile, Elaine's date with the doctor goes wrong when he turns out to have a tongue fetish. George is later seen in the same hospital bed with Jerry and Elaine at his side; after turning up the TV Jerry finds out what he wrote only to find out that it isn't funny at all.
