  • Truly an underrated episode!

    The main plot of this episode is that Elaine is dating a composer who prefers to be called "Maestro". He drives Jerry crazy by randomly mentioning that there are no homes left in Tuscany. It's so funny how Jerry ends up going to Poppi's brother and takes Kramer to Tuscany.

    But what really drives the episodes up are the sub-plots. First there's George who gets a chair for the security guard at Susan's uncle's clothing store. The funniest part is how the security guard ends up falling asleep and the store is robbed. That though is even pedestrian to Kramer and his lawsuit against Java World which Jackie Chiles is introduced. Jackie Chiles is truly a caricature of Johnny Cochran, but a hilarious one at that. His fast-talking nature is so funny to watch especially when he bawls out Kramer. Speaking of which, Kramer ends up blowing the case by taking only free coffee at any Java World when they were about to offer $50,0000. It's "free coffee at any Java World plus....." Kramer: "I'll take it!" That has to be the funniest scene is this episode. One thing I will note though this does not detract from the episode, starting in this episode, Susan becomes quite cold and nasty. It seems out of character that she doesn't feel any sympathy at all for the security guard. It's almost like she and George swapped personalities this episode. I wonder if the writers were making her unlikable this season on purpose so no one would care that the characters didn't care about her dying at the end of the season.

    But anyway, it's a funny episode all the same and a must-watch for any true Seinfeld fan.
