Any rules about certain sensitive, hot-button topics being off-limits for sitcom fodder went out the window after this classic episode. When Kramer and Poppie team up to finally make Kramer's make-your-own-pizza idea a reality, tensions rise as the two debate at which point a pizza becomes a pizza. Meanwhile, George tracks down a copy of the film adaptation for the book he was supposed to read for his book club, and Elaine begins dating the delivery man who brought Jerry his new couch. Jessica Hecht, who played Carol's lover Susan on Friends, guest stars along with Reni Santoni and Patton Oswalt. Originally airing October 27, 1994, "The Couch" was the fifth episode of the show's sixth season.
