Season 8: Episode 151: The English Patient

As George meets a beautiful woman who claims he looks like her boyfriend, Elaine reluctantly sees The English Patient. While Elaine's low opinion of the popular film costs her a date, George becomes obsessed with outdoing Danielle's boyfriend, Neil. In Florida helping his parents move, Jerry is surprised to learn that the Cubans he agreed to bring home for Kramer aren't cigars, but three cigar rollers. And when Jerry is challenged to prove who can lift the most weight, a boastful friend of his father is hospitalized.

As Jerry tries to apologize, Izzy Mandelbaum is re-injured and sent to a specialist in New York where the discovery that the cigar rollers are actually from the Dominican Republic ruins Kramer's business venture. And when Elaine claims to have never seen The English Patient, Peterman insists she drop everything to go with him. Meanwhile, as Jerry tries apologizing again, Izzy's aging son ends up in the hospital, too, as George tries to outdo Neil by asking Danielle to move in with him.

After revealing her feelings about the film, Elaine saves her job by agreeing to a trip to Tunisia where The English Patient was filmed. And when Jerry heads back to the hospital, an injury to Izzy's dad jeopardizes their family restaurant business. So Jerry gets the unemployed Dominicans to help out. But when they are fired, the disgruntled trio hijacks Elaine's flight to Cuba as Danielle decides she's staying with Neil.
