When Jerry begins dating a professional masseuse, he's excited with the idea of constant free massages. But his elation doesn't last long when he comes to the realization that she doesn't seem to have any plans to offer him any back rubs. To make matters worse, George can't get over the fact that the masseuse doesn't like him and when he tries extra hard to impress her, it causes problems with his own girlfriend. Meanwhile, Elaine's new boyfriend decides to change his name because of a famous serial killer with the same moniker, but the lovers are unable to agree on a new name for him. Jennifer Coolidge of Best in Show and the American Pie movies guest stars as Jody the masseuse. Originally airing November 18, 1993, "The Masseuse" was the ninth episode of the show's fifth season.
