Storyline

Jerry visits his parents in Florida. Kramer asks Jerry to pick up some Cubans while he's there, but Kramer doesn't specify whether they are cigars or not. The next day, Jerry has an encounter with Izzy Mandelbaum, the founder of the Magic Pan crepe restaurant. Izzy challenges Jerry to a weight-lifting contest, but when Izzy takes it too far, he winds up in the hospital. Jerry goes to visit and learns that Izzy, his father and his son are nearly identical in age, and each one challenges Jerry to a weight-lifting contest. Meanwhile, back in New York, Elaine is repeatedly dragged to go see the best picture winning film "The English Patient (1996) ", but she absolutely despises it. Peterman nearly fires Elaine when she gets angry and leaves half way through the movie. Peterman gets so angry at Elaine that instead of firing her, he decides to teach her a lesson by making her go to Tunisia and live in a cave for six weeks. Jerry gets back to New York and Kramer learns that the Cubans aren't... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

In "The Comeback", it was established that Elaine prefers artsy dramas over silly comedies. Four episodes later, she is more interested in a silly comedy ("Sack Lunch") than in an artsy drama ("The English Patient"). See more »

Goofs

A crepe is open on each end. If they could be rolled too tight the contents would come out the ends. Even if the ends were plugged there wouldn't be enough enough pressure and enough contents in the crepe to cause a violent eruption. See more »
