  • “It’s not you…it’s me!” George gets dumped and has Jerry’s new girlfriend, a deaf woman who reads lip, eavesdrop on his ex’s conversation to find out why she really dumped him.

    George’s girlfriend dumps him, using the line “It’s not you… it’s me,” which he claims he invented. He tells her “if it’s anyone, it’s me” and storms off. Elaine pretends to be deaf, so that she doesn’t have to make small talk with a cab driver, while Jerry falls for a deaf line judge at a tennis match. Jerry goes out for dinner with George and the deaf woman, who they learn reads lips. Jerry and George attempt to have a conversation without her reading their lips by using their arms and napkins to hide their mouths, but fail. The deaf woman goes to a party with them and reads the lips of George’s ex, but a miscommunication caused by Kramer makes George think his ex is sleeping with someone else.
