"The Big Salad" is the 88th episode of the NBC sitcom Seinfeld. This was the 2nd episode for the 6th season. It aired on September 29, 1994.
Elaine must find a special mechanical pencil, the Rolamech 1000, for Mr. Pitt and soon finds herself dealing with the romantic advances of the stationery store clerk. The clerk asks for her telephone number to call her when he receives the pencil but Elaine gives him Jerry's number instead. At Elaine's request, George purchases a "big salad" for her from Monk's. But his girlfriend (Julie) appears to take credit for the purchase when she hands Elaine the salad in Jerry's apartment. George obsesses over the fact that Elaine believes Julie bought the salad, to the point that he goes out of his way to inform Elaine that he was responsible for the purchase. George's obsession eventually leads to a rift between him and Julie. Jerry learns that his current girlfriend, Margaret (Marita Geraghty), formerly dated Newman, who ended the relationship. Jerry cannot comprehend why Newman dumped someone so clearly "out of his league" in terms of beauty, so he attempts to find any fault in his girlfriend. Kramer plays golf with an ex-Major League Baseball player, who washes his ball on the second shot (not on the green), breaking the rules and causing an altercation with Kramer. The man is later suspected in the murder of a dry cleaner, and Kramer helps the man flee in a white Ford Bronco in a low speed chase down the New Jersey Turnpike.
