Jerry and Elaine decide to set George up with her friend Cynthia, leading to fighting amongst the group. Jerry describes George, who is looking for very specific features (a pinkish hue, a rosy glow, thick lustrous hair) in a woman. Kramer gives George a condom for his date from Bob Sacamano, but warns him (after it is used, of course) that it may be defective, leading to a pregnancy scare.
