  • Jerry, George, and Elaine sign up for volunteer work with the elderly. They wind up with three of the most eccentric old-timers in New York. Meanwhile, Kramer and Newman plot to sell used records for (hopefully) a huge profit.

    I chose "Well Written" to describe 'The Old Man,' even though you could say this for any 'Seinfeld' episode. The dialogue here is truly amazing. Bill Erwin does a remarkable job portraying Sid Fields, a crazy old man who thinks his African housekeeper is stealing from him. Sid's lines are as funny as his personality. His exchange with Jerry when they first meet is classic. He describes watching Kramer and Newman taking his records as like "watching a bunch of hyenas." Also great is Kramer and Newman's final encounter with the record store clerk. "You emit a foul and unpleasant odor!...you are a piece of crap!...I loathe you!" The recurring joke in this episode is about bald men (Gandhi, George) dipping their bald heads in oil and rubbing them all over their female counterparts bodies. Truly great stuff here.
