"The Nose Job" was the twenty-sixth episode of "Seinfeld". The episode was the ninth episode for the show's third season. It aired on November 20, 1991.

The episode was written by Peter Mehlman and was directed by Tom Cherones.


George thinks his girlfriend is perfect, except for one flaw: she has a large nose, so Kramer encourages her to get rhinoplasty. Meanwhile, Jerry is conflicted about his relationship with an actress whom he finds beautiful but with whom he has nothing in common. Also, Kramer needs Elaine's help in reacquiring a jacket that supposedly has an attractive power over women.


* This episode features a scene which was famous among behind-the-scenes "Seinfeld" lore for being one of the first which Julia Louis-Dreyfus had the hardest time getting through without laughing. The sight of Michael Richards as Kramer stuffing his pipe full of tobacco caused Julia to continually burst into giggles. Michael was noticeably displeased with Julia's inability to keep a straight face during this scene, insisting that her laughter was throwing off his concentration. Julia's giggly fits would interrupt the filming of many later scenes throughout the show's run, much to Michael's annoyance.
