Jerry desperately wants Joel Hornek, a childhood friend who keeps calling him and wanting to hang out together, to leave him alone. George suggests Jerry tell him the truth and break up with him much as he would with a girl. Joel doesn't take the news very well and Jerry backs off, even giving him George's ticket to an upcoming Knicks game. George meanwhile thinks he's blown it with a new girl after he lets her know he likes her. Kramer comes up with a new business idea--a make-your-own pizza place.
