Elaine's intolerance for a chatty driver pushes her to pretend she's going deaf, but it backfires. JLD does a lot with what she's given in this very funny episode. This is the first episode written by Carol Leifer, one of the few female writers for Seinfeld and it's a classic.

Fun performances and plots, but not...
