  • Jerry and Elain\'s relationship really comes into play...

    8.0
    What I really like about this episode is the play between Jerry and Elaine. The debate about whether or not they should be together recurred through the first couple of seasons, and here is a perfect example of why they should never have gotten together, and thankfully, didn\'t.

    Towards the end when they finally set parameters for their friendship is not necessarily important in the episode, but is for the rest of the series. The openness they share is critical for the humour, and could never have occured if they became a full fleged couple.

    The first mention of Art Vandelay as well is here, also a later classic part of the show.
