In the Seinfeld episode The Gymnast, Jerry  a Romanian former gymnast whom Jerry says won a silver medal at the 1984 Olympics. Kramer encourages him to have sex with her, since she is probably very “flexible.” Jerry can only think of a conversation involving deposed dictator Nicolae Ceauşescu. George is given another shot with Lindsay, whom he met while trying to join a book club to read Breakfast at Tiffany’s (“The Couch“); according to George, she finds his stupidity “charming.” Jerry and Kramer find out about one of George’s odd bathroom habits: whenever he goes into the “office” he takes off his shirt so as to feel “no encumbrances.” Jerry talks about how George is better with the mothers of his girlfriends than with the girlfriends themselves. Kramer goes to Mr. Pitt’s office to retrieve a 3-D autostereogram painting that Elaine took to frame. Kramer leaves early as he feels intense pain which turns out to be a kidney stone. Mr. Pitt becomes obsessed with finding the “spaceship” image in the 3-D painting. In place of Mr. Pitt, Elaine goes to a merger meeting between Morgan Springs and Poland Creek, but starts a dispute because of the suggested name “Moland” Springs. At Lindsay’s mother’s house, George impresses Mrs. Enright with his gentlemanly demeanor, until he is caught by her eating a partially eaten chocolate éclair out of the trash can. George assures Jerry that the pastry was clean and “on top”, but Jerry says George has crossed the border between man and bum by eating trash. George explains his point of view in a phone call and gets another chance with Lindsay. Kramer brings Jerry a videotape of the 1984 Olympics and Jerry decides to go for it with Katya. Later, Jerry tells Elaine of his disappointment with the sexual tryst (there was nothing gymnastic about it), and she tells him he is now committed to dating Katya for at least three more weeks. At the street, George buys a cup of coffee but he does not like it and throws it away, accidentally splashing a nearby automobile. The driver gets upset and demands George to clean the windshield; he is then spotted cleaning the windshield by Lindsay’s mother, who is now convinced that he is a bum. George has to apologize once more and gets another opportunity with Lindsay.
