  • In one of the truly classic episodes in the best show of all time\'s history, Jerry gets a visit from the library detective, Kramer begins to fall in love with a librarian and George sees his hated high school gym teacher,now a homeless man.

    One of the best one episode characters in Seinfeld\'s history, the Library Detective is an hilariously stubborn old fashioned man who confronts Jerry about a missing book years ago that was never returned. Jerry goes to see his girlfriend at the time to see if he returned the book, only to find indeed he had not! Meanwhile, Kramer meets a pretty librarian and George sees his brown toothed underwear pulling gym teacher, who now as a bum living under the steps of the NYC Public Library, give him a wedgie yet again, this time atomic! The ending is a great twist, and I won\'t spoil it. One of my favorites.
