  • "I don't want to be a pirate!"

    The fifth season continues going strong with another classic installment "The Puffy Shirt". Kramer's girlfriend, a "low talker" gets Jerry to wear a puffy pirate shirt on his appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno; but Jerry doesn't know what he's agreed to do. This is another example of Seinfeld taking the most mundane and ridiculous (at the same time) topic and turning it into a great piece of television. This episode also features George becoming a hand model and unfortunately losing this new "job" when he meets an unfortunate accident. I love this episode. It's another classic Seinfeld episode. The puffy shirt and the "I don't want to be a pirate" line are classic.
