A classic episode from start to finish. Jerry dates a girl named Lois and runs into a former high school rival. We also see Elaine dating a communist and Kramer volunteering as a department store Santa.
It has many classic moments, the big race at the end is my favorite, the Superman music kicking up and the celebrating, including Jerry knocking Elaine out of the way. I love this episode. Jerry's comment to George in the coffee shop (you really went bald there) is classic.
"The Race" is the best episode of the sixth season. I almost forgot to mention Jerry's references to Lois as if he were Superman. Great.
