Elaine sneaks up to first class after smelling cookies up there. She attempts to sleep in an abandoned seat but is quickly asked to leave.

Kramer sits alone watching the movie the gang had planned to see. Jerry and Elaine watch another movie because they arrived to the theater late. A whole episode about being late to the movie theater is just another example of how Seinfeld is a show about nothing.

At first Jerry has trouble with this but then he starts to say rather dark and twisted things when around George's girlfriend.

He returns with no proof and attempts extrme measures to obtain proof but utlimately fails in his quest for the discount.

6* The Junior Mint

Jerry's new girlfriend has a name that rhymes with a female body part, but Jerry can't remember it for the life of him. After making out with her, he knows that it is just too late to ask her about this. He and George ponder what her name may be in the Coffee shop. George thinks aloud and comes up with Mulva, Bovary, and Arethra. The name still can't be remembered. Jerry spends more time with her and attempts to look in her purse to find out her name. She catches him and he says he was just looking for some gum or a junior mint. Kramer enters the room and Jerry gets Kramer to introduce himself to her in hopes that she would be forced to reveal her own name. It doesen't work and then he tries the same thing when George enters the room. Jerry can only refer to this woman as "you." He mutters Mulva to her and inquires in a secretive way to see if this is her name. He then claims he has an aunt named Mulva and that her massages reminded him of her. She ultimately finds out that Jerry does not know her name and leaves. Just as she has left Jerry realises her name and screams Dolores from his apartment. Dolores rhymes with clitoris a rather intimate part of the female anatomy. Elaine discovers that a guy she once went out with is in the hospital and is about to undergo surgery. She remembers him from the past as fat and feels compeled to see him in the hospital but has Jerry pose as a boyfriend so that the guy doesen't get the wrong idea. Kramer also goes along to the hospital so that he can get some gloves to use in his apartment for redoing the wallpaper. In the hospital Elaine discovers that he has lost a lot of weight. He tells Elaine that after they broke up he was not able to eat for weeks. She naturally feels rather good about this effect she had on the man. Jerry goes to the corner and plays Yo Yo as Elaine tries to downplay her comments about Jerry being the boyfriend. Elaine arranges to have dinner with the man after the operation. She later tries to back out of this after she sees how he eats like a pig but Jerry won't help her with this. Kramer comments with the doctor about retractors which he heard about on 20/20 and the doctors tells him that those retractors will not be used. Kramer is invited to watch the operation, Jerry agrees to come to after commenting that it will be fun to see the guy cut open. Kramer snacks on Junior mints as the doctors operate and once even asks a doctor to move so he can get a better view. Kramer offers Jerry a mint but Jerry says no. Kramer persists and Jerry accidentally knocks the Junior Mint out of Kramer's hand and into the open wound of the man being operated on. Jerry and Kramer look on in horror and ponder what they have done. At first the man recovers from his operation but then falls very ill. George believes that the man may die so he invests $1900 in a painting by the man which he refers to as "the triangles." If the artist dies the panting could be worth some money he presumes. The man ultimately gets better and the doctor tells the gang that powers from above were at work to stay off the infection. This was humorous as the Junior Mint fell from above and into the wound earlier.

The Smelly Car

Jerry notices an unusual odor in his car after having it parked by a valet. The odor becomes so unbearable that Jerry attempts to sell the car but can't. Instead Jerry leaves the car and it's keys just on the street for the taking. George spots his girlfriend, Susan holding hands with a girl. George finds his girlfriend's new outlook on sexuality interesting. Kramer converts Susan's friend to heterosexuality but she soon converts back after smelling a jacket that Kramer borrowed from Jerry that was in the smelly car.

The Handicap Spot

Kramer talks George into parking his father's car in a handicap spot while he goes to shop for an engagement present for a friend "the Drake." A handicap woman gets injured because of George's parking. Kramer and George see her in the hospital. Kramer begins to like the lady and replaces her wheelchair which was damaged as a result of the accident. The wheelchair he gives her is not of the highest quality however. The old lady flys down a hill at full speed with no way to stop as the brakes on the wheelchair are defective. As a result of George's parking leading to the old lady getting hurt an angry mob damages the car. George's dad gets arrested for parking in the handicap spot that George parked in himself earlier. George becomes a butler of a sort for his father. The butler concept in this episode probably was a reference of sorts to the butler concept in the "Jerry" show that Jerry and George pitch which also has a butler.

The Pilot (1)

George and Jerry reach an agreement with NBC executivies to produce a pilot for their show about nothing. They primarily get an agreement to do the show because NBC's President really likes Elaine. In the pilot Jerry is to play himself but actors are to play Kramer, George, and Elaine. George notices a small white blimish on his lip and asks everyone if they see it too. George thinks he spots the man playing Kramer's character taking a box of raisins from the set and absolutely must find out the truth on the matter. The actress playing Elaine wants to experience what Elaine's life is really like. That includes sampling the real Jerry in bed to help her better know the role she is to play. Elaine has a problem with the waitresses of a coffee shop she and Jerry go to. All the waitresses are large chested. Jerry and George love this fact, but Elaine takes issue with this until she discovers the waitresses all have similar endowments because they are relatives of the coffee shop's owner.

The Pilot (2)

George asks the man playing Kramer more about what he knows about the raisins. The character playing George acts frantically as he worries that he will forget his lines or screw up. Jerry comments that the actor is just like George. The filming of the pilot is watched by Elaine in disguise as well as by Jerry's relatives on TV later. Elaine attends the screening in disguise to avoid a crazy man "Joe" that thinks he knows her but doesen't. She wears a stylish blonde whig in the episode. The pilot's premise centers around Jerry having a buttler and the normal nothing adventures that Jerry's life often has with Elaine, George, and Kramer. NBC's President begins to act funny because of his obsession with Elaine. After Elaine tells him off he goes mad and joins green peace to save the whales. The episode ends with him chasing a boat trying to spread the "environmental cheer" before being thrown overboard. With NBC's President gone a new woman fills his shoes and decides the Jerry Show is just not what NBC needs.
