For the character referred to as “The Virgin”, see Marla Penny. “The Virgin” is the tenth episode of season four of Seinfeld, and the 50th overall. It originally aired on November 11, 1992.

It was written by Peter Mehlman and directed by Tom Cherones.


Jerry introduces the gang to his new girlfriend, Marla, who happens to be a virgin. Meanwhile, George asks out a woman named Stacy, but knows it will not go far since he is dating Susan. He is excited to finally have a good answer to the question, "What do you do?" since Susan is an executive at NBC and he is writing a sitcom for them, but he realizes if he dates Stacy, Susan will break up with him and he will lose his chance at the sitcom.

Elaine makes the mistake of telling Marla how men act after sex, which makes Marla not want to have sex with Jerry.

George and Jerry pitch a new television idea to NBC, about a man forced to become a butler, and they surprisingly like the show, but George gets Susan fired after he kisses her in front of the other employees, but he keeps his job. He later uses the opportunity to pick up a girl at the comedy club, but the girl he picks is not a fan of sitcom writers.


Jerry: Let me ask you something. When's the last time you went skiing?
George: About six years ago.
Jerry: I think you can take the lift ticket off your jacket now.
George: Women like skiers.

Elaine: Marla and I went out for coffee and afterwards I was crossing the street and he was biking right towards me. So I got out of the way just in time, but then he ran into a parked car. He hit his head and everything went flying.
George: Something happened to the food?!!
