This episode from the second season is considered by many fans to be the epitome of the series' "show about nothing" concept. The entire episode takes place in a Chinese restaurant while Jerry, Elaine, and George wait a ridiculous amount of time for a table. Between daring each other to do embarrassing things to pass the time, Elaine begins to lose her wits out of hunger, Jerry can't remember the name of a woman he runs into, and George fights over a pay phone on which he is awaiting a call. James Hong and David Tress guest star. Originally airing May 23, 1991, "The Chinese Restaurant" was the sixth episode taped for the second season, despite being aired 11th.
