The Rye, the 11th episode of season seven and the 121st overall, was first broadcasted on January 4, 1996 with a script by Carol Leifer and directed by Andy Ackerman.
Elaine dates a jazz saxophonist. Jerry tells one of the band members the saxophonist and Elaine are “hot and heavy.” Susan’s parents meet and have dinner with the Costanzas for the first time. Both families obsess over a loaf of rye bread that wasn’t served with the meal, which Frank takes back home. Kramer takes over a friend’s horse-drawn carriage for a week and feeds the horse Beef-a-Reeno.
A very mixed bag of an episode, not a whole lot of funny moments and a lack of an interesting storyline to work with.
