.... "The Rye" takes a while to warm up but, by the end, it's pretty hot and heavy. The storyline with Elaine and her saxophonist boyfriend really is not all that funny - but George's storyline makes the whole episode worth while. George's parents meet his soon-to-be in-laws - enough said, right? George's parent take back the marble rye that they brought for dinner when his in-laws forget to put it out - so George seeks to rectify the situation by sneaking in a new rye into his in-laws house. Kramer distracts them by taking them on a ride in his horse-drawn carriage and Jerry provides the rye - naturally, nothing goes according to plan.
