"The Fusilli Jerry" is the 107th episode of the sitcom Seinfeld. This was the 21st episode of the sixth season. It aired on April 27, 1995. Working titles for this episode were "The Move", "The Proctologist", and "The Assman".
Elaine starts dating Jerry's mechanic, David Puddy, for the first time in the series. During their first night in bed, Puddy does a sex move which she recognizes as Jerry's (albeit with a pinch, not a swirl). Jerry is appalled when he hears about this. He goes to chew Puddy out, and finds someone else to look into his car. Puddy is upset that he can't do the move, so he uses George's old move. Jerry suspects that his new mechanic is over-pricing the repair bill on his car, so Elaine asks Puddy how he much he charges, proving Jerry's theory. He ends up taking his car back to Puddy.
George is desperate for a new move, and asks Jerry to learn his. He tries it, but he forgets to save for the swirl for the end. Eventually, he gets it right, but is dumped shortly after, when his girlfriend noticed that he wrote down the move on his hand.
Estelle gets an eye job on the condition that she cannot cry for ten days. When Kramer drives her home, he runs over a pothole and pushes his arm on Estelle, which she recognizes as Frank's move ("Stopping short"). Frank is also upset at this, and finds Kramer at Jerry's apartment. A small fight ensues, causing Frank to land on a Fusilli Jerry (A pasta statue made by Kramer).
Frank and George come home that night from a proctologist, and Estelle gets so overwhelmed that she starts to cry, but George quickly reminds her not to.
Kramer the ASSMAN
Kramer goes to the Department of Motor Vehicles for his new licence plates. To his surprise, the plates read "ASSMAN". He suspects those plates were meant for a proctologist (Their stories end with "Million to one shot, doc."), and uses this theory to his advantage, by parking in a "Doctors Only" spot when he goes to pick up Estelle. The plates also score him cat calls from passing drivers, and a date with a big-bottomed girlfriend named Sally.
Later, when the gang take Frank to a proctologist, Kramer spots a picture of a boat called "ASSMAN". He finally found the doctor who is supposed to have the plates.
- This episode marks the first appearance of David Puddy (Patrick Warburton), Jerry's mechanic and Elaine's on-again/off-again boyfriend. Warburton would later voice Superman in The Adventures of Seinfeld & Superman.
