  • The Wig Master

    Kramer dresses up as a pimp just makes this episode. Seinfeld and its writers find a way to take the zaniest moments and turn them into pure comedy gold. A friend of Susan's (the titular wig master) stays at George's place for a number of days. Jerry tries to buy a crest jacket (callback to the previous episode "The Friars Club") from a store and when he brings in Elaine, the salesman asks her out right in front of him. It's another nutty moment for Jerry. In the end, Kramer gets a number of things and puts together a pimp costume, complete with hat, cane and outlandishly loud coat (and a pink Cadillac). He gets mistaken for a pimp when he finds a prostitute and John in the back of his rental Cadillac. The Wig Master is another one of my favorite episodes of the season. For those brief seconds with Kramer dressed as a pimp, it's totally worth it.
