gs: Mark DeCarlo (Alec Berg) Raye Birk (Mr. Pless) Pierrino Mascarino (Father Hernandez) Joe Lala (Priest) Katy Selverstone (Siena) Peggy Lane O'Rourke (Waitress) David Richardson (Fan #1) Dave Powledge (Fan #2) Jan Eddy (Fan #3) Lawrence LeJohn (Crowd Member) Patrick Warburton (Puddy)

George and his girlfriend discuss toilet paper and he is in love. Elaine's boyfriend paints his face and his behavior at a hockey game, disturbs Jerry, Elaine and a passing priest. A monkey throws a banana peel at Kramer, when he throws it back, the monkey becomes depressed and the zoo demands an apology. George tries to tell his girlfriend that he loves her, but her reaction surprises him. Jerry refuses to give the "necessary" follow-up courtesy thank you for the hockey tickets and Kramer is outraged.

b: 11-May-95 pc: 622 w: Larry David s: Larry David & Fred Stoller d: Andy Ackerman

NOTE: Story writer Fred Stoller appears in an uncredited cameo as one of the fans behind the gang and the face painter at the hockey game. Sitting next to Fred wearing a Rangers jersey is the "real" Kramer. Viewer Jerry Balsam noticed that there is a character in this episode named Alec Berg, which also happens to be the name of a one of the show's writer-producers. Coincidence? Also there is a visual reference to the fictional company called Gramercy, that Katy Selverstone worked for in a popular series of commercials that she appeared in.
Viewer Alan Bright notes that in this episode George claims that he has never said I love you, except to a dog. However, in "The Ex-Girlfriend", George says that Marlene squeezed an "I love you" return from him. Perhaps he was in denial.
Finally, Josh Tomel notes that 36-year-old Puddy would have been 20 years old when the Devils moved to New Jersey in 1982 from Colorado. So he couldn't have been watching them as a kid and it is not very likely that he would have been a fan of the Colorado incarnation of the team.

Just a meaningless observation but when watching this episode last night I realized that this was the 2nd episode where George had a girlfriend who could not hear out of one ear. In this episode it was Siena who couldn’t hear out of her left ear. In The Implants Read the script of The Implants Download the full epiosde video of The Implants Discuss The Implants it was Betsy who didn’t hear well out of her right ear.

Saw this episode last night. How good is it. From Puddy being the devil and Elaine being the angel at the end to Kramer having a fight with the monkey, topped off with Kramer and Jerry being part of the DEVILS cheer squad with Puddy

it's a shame that real Devil's fans aren't as passionate as Puddy.

At 3:30 into the episode, you can see the movement of the studio lighting reflection on Jerry's cabinets in the upper corner of the kitchen (between the fridge and the sink).

The scene Kramer apologizing to the monkey is a top one. Then the monkey spits water to Kramer´s face and then Kramer got into those classical electrical movements trying to get even with the ape. Hilarious!

1. The real Alec Berg was also a producer for a few dozen episodes of "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

2. Elaine is repulsed by Puddy's devil face paint, but in "The Burning," she and the priest make horns out of their index fingers and shout "bleeeghh" when the priest tells David he's going to Hell, too.
