  • "Poppy's a little sloppy"....

    .... "The Pie" is a very funny episode and one of the best episodes of Season 5. The title storyline comes from Jerry and his girlfriend, whose father, Poppy, owns a restaurant. After Jerry's girlfriend inexplicably rejects his offer to try a piece of apple pie, Jerry is put in a similar position when Poppy doesn't wash his hands after visiting the bathroom before hand-making Jerry's pizza. The moment where Jerry and Poppy are in the bathroom together is one of the best moments of the entire series.

    Kramer's story, revolving around an itch he can't scratch until he dates a woman with really long fingernails, only works because of Michael Richards whose physical comedic abilities are unparalleled. Meanwhile, George fights with another man to get his hands on a nifty suit for half the price, only to have his victory backfire.

    However, the best aspect of this episode is the storyline revolving around a mannequin that looks exactly like Elaine. The Elaine mannequin is the center piece to the whole episode - with Kramer, Jerry and especially George hilariously crossing paths with it. Imagine her surprise and dissatisfaction with such a thing - and you wouldn't guess who is behind the whole thing.
