    This episode is overlooked by many. Maybe the Van Buren story line is not the most easily remembered, but it has many, many great scenes. Like when George and Kramer try to tell Jerry that his girlfriend is not up to par, and when Elaine goes to the coffee shop but doesn\'t want to talk to Jerry, and all the moments with George and his protege, who wants to be a city planner. Eventually Jerry finds a reason to dislike his girl, the mere fact that his parents think she\'s great. I like the look on Kramer\'s face after he tells the story of returning his pants, and Elaine says, \'You were wearing them?\' And seeing Peterman with his remote TV control and his socks on the coffee table. Those are classic moments.
