    A girl Jerry met on the road wants to stay with him when she comes to New York. George thinks that she is just using Jerry as contingency plan. Hoffman (Kessler/Kramer see notes) comes by to borrow a couple of pieces of meat. The girl calls and asks Jerry if she can stay at his apartment for the night, when she arrives she asks to stay for another night. Jerry is disappointed when everything is going his way until he finds out she is engaged.

    Review: It is amazing how together this show is from the beggining. I mean, sure somethings don\'t stay like Claire the waitress, bad opening music, and no Elaine?!? But altogether, the conversations are there and the show never really changed from this template. Key Moments: \"Hand Sandwich\"
