  • Love this episode... where we first see how much George longs to be an architect.

    The Stakeout shows us several things... Jerry's relationship with Elaine; George's longing to be an architect (or at least something... some sort of career!); and exactly how shallow Jerry can be when it comes to women. He meets a woman at a party (which he attends with Elaine) and in order to track her down, he stalks her! He pretends that he belongs, bringing George with him, to the building where she works. And it's definitely a riot! The pivotal scene is the one between George and Jerry when they are trying to figure out what sort of story to tell the woman, on why they are in the building. Never fails to make me crack up!
