In this series-defining episode, everyone goes to this new soup stand because the soup is so great. Unfortunately, the owner is obsessed about his customer's ordering procedure. Jerry and his new girlfriend annoy everybody by using baby talk. George tries to do the same thing with Susan to show how annoying they are to everybody. Jerry and his girlfriend get rejected from the Soup Nazi's kitchen when they're caught kissing in line. Elaine buys an Armoire and asks Kramer to watch it. While watching it, Kramer is robbed by some gay, trash-talking street toughs who want nothing more than the Armoire. She then gets rejected from the soup kitchen when she offends the "Soup Nazi". Kramer, who befriends the Soup Nazi, gets a new Armoire exactly like the one that was stolen from him. He then gives it to Elaine, who discovers the Soup Nazi's recipes inside. Jerry pleads with her not to do anything, but Elaine threatens to put the Soup Nazi out of business.

, confronted a mugger in Boston, only for the mugger to then chase him into a store & threaten him with a knife. See more
All the soups that are served appear on the store board. One of the customers, who claims to be half Spanish, asks for a "gazpacho", a cold soup typical of southern Spain made with oil, tomato, cucumber, garlic and onion. However, none of the soups in the board seems to fit this description. See more
