The Wife, the 17th episode of season 5 and the 81st overall, was first broadcasted on March 17, 1994 with a script by Peter Mehlman and directed by Tom Cherones.
Jerry’s girlfriend (Courteney Cox) makes him pretend they are married so that she can get a dry-cleaning discount; the pretence leads to tensions in their relationship. Kramer also takes advantage of the discount, but can’t sleep without his quilt. Meanwhile, at the health club George is caught urinating in the shower by a man whom Elaine would like to date. Her dilemma: does she side with George or with the prospective boyfriend?
First off, couples out there, do you pretend you’re married just to get stuff? Is that really something couples do? I don’t know, maybe it’s just me but it just seems like an odd thing to do.
But yeah, anyway, a decent little episode with a certainly odd premise to it to say the least.
