"What is his stand... on abortion?"
4 October 2011 | by itamarscomixSee all my reviews

Season 6, Episode 5, "The Couch"

A hilarious episode, though not one of the best season 6 has to offer. The main highlight is the return of Poppy (who first appeared in season 5's "The Pie") who helps Kramer with his vision for the "pizza place where you make your own pie", and provides some of the episode's funniest moments.

Elaine is also truly great in this episode, and it's probably the last time we've seen her take a stand and care about something (she was given a semi-activist personality in the early episodes with her anti-fur and feminist rants, but became more apathetic as the series progressed, in line with the rest of the cast).
