Best-known episode: "The Sponge"
The Hostile Gays make their first appearance in "The Soup Nazi," lifting an armoire Kramer was guarding for Elaine on the sidewalk simply because they want it. But they return with a vengeance (and one slightly different character name) in "The Sponge," chastising Cosmo for participating in the city's big AIDS Walk without wearing a red ribbon. ("Who! Who does not want to wear the ribbon?") When Kramer, beaten and battered, drags himself across the finish line, he has no idea he'll face the hilarious twosome (played with brilliant flair by Yul Vazquez and John Paragon) once more — when he inadvertently sets fire to a flag in "The Puerto Rican Day."
