NBC65/100

65. Milos

Best-known episode: "The Comeback"
The tortured tennis-club employee with a terrible secret: He can't play. Unfortunately, Jerry discovers this only after Milos has convinced him to buy an expensive racket, and Milos goes to great lengths to keep the matter private, sending his wife to Jerry's apartment as a form of "medieval sexual payola." The plan backfires ("That's the risk you run when you dabble in the flesh trade"), and Jerry must let Milos beat him in tennis so the hapless salesman can regain the respect of his wife. His exuberant celebrations annoy Jerry ("ANOTHER GAME FOR MILOS!") but in the end, he allows Milos to win back his wife. Since the role, actor Mark Harelik has shown up on Scandal, Monk and Breaking Bad. Not too shabby for a guy without a backhand. JAMES MONTGOMERY
