| "They don't know what's going on"
The other high point in Season 4 (and in Seinfeld actually), along with The Contest, The Outing is one of the most entertaining, clever and funniest episodes of the show. It actually comes out as a sequel to The Contest, not just because of the risky material but also because of one scene that makes reference to the classic. And this is what The Outing is: an immediate classic.

Although this episode doesn't revolve around our four protagonist, what makes this episode classic is the absurd amount of great scenes. From the interview to the two- line phone malfunction and the newspaper article aftermath (Kramer, Jerry's parents and Estelle's reactions are all hilarious) and last, but not least, the conclusion of the episode. There's not a dull moment.

Beside from the main story, we get some nice details that enrich the episode, like Elaine's problem with Jerry's birthday gift, Kramer's last line, the gang discussing ugliest leaders, Elaine and her coat problem, the guy from the militia.

Without a doubt, one of the best.
