2.4  What other TV shows and movies have the main cast members been in?

        Click name for IMdb page:

        Jerry Seinfeld

        Jason Alexander (Jason's real name is Jay Greenspan  His father's name was
                Alexander Greenspan, so that's where he got his stage name.

        Michael Richards

        Julia Louis-Dreyfus

Top

2.5  When are the actor's and character's birthdays?

        Real:
                Jerry Seinfeld - born April 29, 1954 in New York City
                Jason Alexander (Greenspan) - born September 23, 1959 in Newark, New Jersey
                Julia Louis-Dreyfus - born January 13, 1961 in NYC, raised in Washington, D.C.
                Michael Richards - born July 21, 1948 in Los Angeles, California

        TV:

                Jerry was born in December. In "The Heart Attack", George says he was born in April,
        and in "The Butter Shave", Jerry says they are 4 months apart, and I think it's common
        knowledge that Jerry is older than George, so it must be December.

Top

3.1  What is Kramer's name?

        It is revealed in "The Switch" that Kramer's first name is Cosmo.

Top

3.2  How does Kramer support himself?

        Kramer won $18,000 ($600 at 30 to 1) on a horse (named Papa Nick) when he got a tip on the
        subway in "the Subway". This, combined with his Coffee Table book royalties and whatever he
        made as a Calvin Klein underwear model, plus the fact that his apartment is rent controlled and
        he gets most of his food free from Jerry's refrigerator, means Kramer never has a money
        problem.  Also he could have earned some money in Los Angeles in "The Trip" by appearing on
        'Murphy Brown'.  Kramer may have also received some sort of payment for being on strike
        [The Strike].  He acted out diseases for medical students to diagnose [The Burning"). Kramer
        also played Santa [The Race").  Kramer also poses in police line-ups for $50 ["The Beard"] and
        once worked as a stand-in on "All My Children". In "The Muffin Tops", Kramer charged $37.50
        for a ride on the "Peterman Reality Tour".

3.3  How many times has Jerry "known" Elaine?

        In "The Deal" Jerry said they had 'been together' 25 times, where Elaine thought it was 37.
        The problem is, that they have gotten together since this was mentioned.  For example, I
        know they 'did it' in "The Mango". I'm not sure what the real count is, but it's got to be
        around 30 for Jerry and 40 for Elaine, give or take a few.

Top

3.4  How do the characters know each other?

        In "The Outing" (and later in "The Abstinence") we are told George met Jerry at JFK High
        School
, when George fell off a rope in gym class and landed on Jerry's head. But in "The
        Betrayal" Jerry says to George, "Didn't I beat you up in the fourth grade?" Jerry met Kramer
        when they became next-door neighbors. We learn in "The Betrayal" that Kramer was already
        there when Jerry moved in. Jerry and Elaine "used to go out", but how they met is a mystery.

3.6  What religion is xxxxx?

        Jerry is definitely Jewish. His last name is Jewish. His parents got mad at him for making-out
        during "Schindler's List". Elaine is definitely not Jewish. It was revealed she had "shiksappeal"
        (a strange effect that non-Jewish women have on Jewish men) in "The Serenity Now". She may be
        Catholic because she makes the sign of the cross in "The Betrayal" and in "The Doodle".

        Kramer is definitely not Jewish. In "The Fatigues" he organizes a Jewish Single's
        Night and says "I'm not Jewish".

        George is less clear cut.  There's no question Frank is Roman-Catholic. He belongs to the
        'Knights of Columbus", a Catholic organization, and he once made a living selling religious icons,
        counting the Rev. Moon as a customer.  Estelle is Jewish.  While claims have been made that
        she only seems Jewish because the actress that plays her, Estelle Harris, is Jewish, but there
        are enough clues within the show to allow the viewer to know she is Jewish, Estelle’s house
        smells like kasha, a Jewish staple, in “The Cigar Store Indian”, she plays Mah-Jongg, a rummy-
        like tile game stereotypically favored by Jewish women, in “The Handicap Spot”.  Also, she
        wears a Chai (Hebrew character meaning ‘life’) pendant in “The Serenity Now” and she
        mentioned her refusal to ride in a German car in “The Money”. While other reasons have been
        postulated for Estelle's aversion to German cars, the most logical one in the context of this
        particular show is that Estelle is Jewish and won't have anything to do with German products
        etc. due to the Holocaust, this is common among elderly Jews.  And since in the Jewish
        religion, the faith is passed down through the mother and not the father, we can conclude that
        George is Jewish.

4.0  Are there questions about the other characters?

Top

4.1  Who is Newman and why does Jerry hate him?
 

        Newman is a USPS employee who lives in Jerry's building. We do not know Newman's first
        name. His business card simply shows "Newman". There has been some debate over the question
        of Newman's first name ever since his first appearance on 11/27/91 in "the Stranded".  The
        bottom line is this. Newman's first name has never been revealed.  Or, if Newman is his first
        name, then his last name has never been revealed.  At the center of the controversy was a
        scene at the end of "the Bottle Deposit" when a farm girl yells out to a fleeing Newman,
        "Goodbye Norman (See 6.1).  Larry David said during an interview that this was a mistake on
        the part of the actress, but it lent an added level of humor so they left it in.  Newman and
        Jerry are antagonists, but whatever cause the rift between them happened before the show
        began. They have disliked each other from the start.  Newman is a friend of Kramer’s.

Top

4.2  Was Newman in the movie 'Animal House'?

        No.  Newman is played by Wayne Knight. Steven Furst played Kent Dorfman in Animal House.
        Although Wayne Knight did not play Kent Dorfman, there is a Seinfeld - "Animal House"
        connection.  Mark Metcalf (who played the Maestro in "The Maestro" and "The Doll"),
        played Douglas Neidermeyer in that movie.

Top

4.3  Who is the "unfunny comic"?

        Kenny Bania is a night club "hack" and mostly tolerated semi-friend of Jerry’s. Bania is most intrigued by Ovaltine,
        a subject which comprises a large amount of his comedy routine.

Top

4.4  Is that really George Steinbrenner?

        No, that’s not really Big Stein, but he did give his blessings and doesn't mind that he is
        portrayed as bumbling and inept, he was actually flattered. Steinbrenner is only seen from the
        back. The voice is provided by Larry David, and the 'back' is played by actor Lee Bear and also
        by Larry David, depending on the episode. ‘Big Stein’ and Julia's father went to school together.
        They both attended the Culver Military Academy in Indiana, and Steinbrenner said he did know
        Julia's dad while he was there.

Top

4.5  Who is the "Soup Nazi"?

        The owner of Soup Kitchen International, Al Yeganeh, is the man the character is based on
        Al, busy enough already with his business, doesn't like the extra publicity his shop was given by
        this episode nor the use of the word "Nazi". (Although I’m sure he has no problem with the
        extra profit his Seinfeld-created notoriety has resulted in) For his performance as the "Soup
        Nazi" actor Larry Thomas was nominated for an Emmy Award.

        Soup Kitchen International is located at 259A W 55th in New York City,
        (212) 757-7730.  The kitchen is closed summers and weekends.

        Here are some of the Soup Nazi's recipes, in case you don't have an old armoire to search through;

Top

4.6  Who is Kenny Kramer?

        Kenny Kramer was a neighbor of co-creator Larry David, an inspiration for Cosmo Kramer.

Top

4.7  Who is Art Vandelay?

        When George was trying to come up with a name [The Stakeout"), his first choice was Burt
        Harbinson. Then came Art Core.  He seemed to add 'veley' as an afterthought. They were going to
        go with Art Corveley, but George changed it at the last moment to Art Vandelay. There really
        is no Art. It's just the name George uses when he needs 'a name', usually to fill out an alibi
        of some sort.

        George and Jerry, looking for a reason to be in the building where the woman
        Jerry's staking out works, say they're there to have lunch with Art Vandelay. [The Stakeout]

        George lied to Mrs. Sokol at the unemployment office in order to continue benefits,
        by saying he's close to the latex salesman position at Vandelay Industries.  [The Boyfriend]

        George lies to Susan about spending the day with Marisa Tomei by telling her he's meeting
        with Elaine to discuss a problem she's having with her boy-friend Art Vandelay.  [The Cadillac (2)]

        George tells the receptionist at Brant-Leland he's there to meet Art Vandelay
        as an excuse to meet her. [The Bizarro Jerry]

        George tries fudging his computer sales numbers by faking a sale of two dozen PCs to
        Art Vandelay. [The Serenity Now]

        George tells the real estate agent he is Art Vandelay to use the bathroom, so he can
        wash ink off of his hands. [The Puerto Rican Day]

        During an interview as a proof writer at Pendant Publishing, George said he read
        "Venetian Blinds" by Art Vandelay. [The Red Dot]

        Of course, in the Final Episode, the judge who sends the gang to prison is named Arthur Vandelay.

Top

4.8  Was Jackie Chiles supposed to be Johnny Cochran?

        They are both slick and full of rhyming rhetoric; you make the call.  Phil Morris (the man who
        played Jackie) admitted that Jackie Chiles was a takeoff on Johnnie Cochran.  In a TV Guide
        interview, Morris mentioned that he had a chance to meet with Cochran, who admitted that
        he enjoyed watching Chiles' antics on screen.

Top

4.9  Was Russell Dalrymple supposed to be Warren Littlefield?

        It would seem so. In HBO's "The Late Shift", the story of the late night TV wars, Warren
        Littlefield is played by Bob Balaban, who played Russell Dalrymple on SEINFELD. Also, their
        physical characteristics are strikingly similar.

Top

4.10  Who is J. Peterman?

        J. Peterman is Elaine's boss (played by John O'Hurley) and also a real person and catalog at
        http://www.jpeterman.com.  He had a propensity for telling boring stories about his extensive
        world travels, and apparently had dealing with opium on some of these trips.  He has a number
        of euphemisms for the drug, including: White Lotus, Yam-Yam and Shanghai Sally [The
        Showerhead] and Horse, Smack, White Palace and The Chinaman’s Nightcap [The Bookstore]

Top

4.11 Is there a list of J. Peterman products that were listed on the show?

        -Rogue's Wallet [The Secret Code]("It was where he kept his card;
        his dirty little secret. Smart, devious, balding, his name was Costanza,
        he killed my mother.")
        -Urban Sombrero [The Foundation]
        -Pygmy Pullover [The Bottle Deposit(1)]
        -Norwegian Ice Fishing Vest [The Hot Tub]
        -Himalayan Walking Shoes [The Hot Tub]

        -Classic Horseman's Duster [The Understudy]

Top

4.12  Who are the two ‘curiously effeminate’ street toughs and when do they appear?

        Ray (John Paragon) and Bob (Yul Vasquez). The John Paragon character was named 'Ray' in
        "The Soup Nazi", but for some reason, three weeks later in "The Sponge" his name was
        'Cedric'. They act particularly effeminate, discussing how attractive Elaine’s armoire was as
        they were stealing it.  The duo also appeared in "The Puerto Rican Day" at the toughs who
        initiated the assault on Kramer for refusing to wear the AIDS walk ribbon.

Top

4.13  Who is the Pakistani café owner?

        His name is Babu Bhatt (pronounced 'Bot') and after Jerry ruined his cafe business by
        suggesting he switch to 'authentic Pakistani cuisine' (in "The Cafe") and got him deported to
        Pakistan by neglecting to give him the Visa renewal application in time in "The Visa"), Babu
        swore vengeance on Jerry at the end of "The Visa".  Several years later, he was brought back
        to the USA to testify against the gang, and against Jerry in particular, in the Final episode.
        Babu is best known for his finger wagging and referring to Jerry as a “beddy beddy bad man.”

4.15  Who is Bob Sacamano?

        Bob Sacamano is a friend of Kramer who we never get to see.  Bob is rarely used to further a plot,
        he’s essentially a 'device' used to give Kramer some good lines.  Bob

        - Tried to undergo shock treatments but they didn't work because his synapses were too big. [The Truth]

        - Had a high pitched voice due to a botched hernia operation [The Heart Attack]

        - Lived in New Jersey. [The Fix-up]

        - Worked at a condom factory. [The Fix-up]

- Stayed with Kramer for a year and a half. [The Wig Master]

- Bob had rabies. [The Glasses]

        - Sold Russian hats down in Battery Park for $40. [The Chicken Roaster]

        - Had a party, which Elaine was invited to, three weeks before. [The Fatigues]

        - Decided to attach a piece of elastic to a paddle and rubber ball.  Before that,
        when you hit the ball, it would just bounce away.  [The Puerto Rican Day]

        - Had a father in Florida who sold knock-off Wizard organizers. [The Wizard]

Top

4.16  Who is Lomez?

        Another often mentioned and unseen friend of Kramer’s, Lomez…

        - Usually organized Jewish Singles Night. [The Fatigues]

        - Was an Orthodox Jew.  As Kramer says, "Old School" [The Fatigues]

        - Vacationed in the Everglades. [The Fatigues]

        - Was in the Port-a-Potty. [The Betrayal]

        - Traded steaks for stereo speakers. [The Package]

        - Sold Kramer his hot tub. [The Hot Tub]

        - Had an unavoidable meeting with “Mr. Kramer”. [The Voice]

        - Blew the building circuit when his neighbor left the alarm on. [The Slicer]

        - Lost his cat when the autofeeder went off [The Slicer]

Top

4.17  Where is the real Monk's restaurant?

        Monk's is a fictitious coffee shop. The exterior shots are of Tom's Restaurant located in
        Manhattan on the corner of 112th Ave. and Broadway.  A co-owner of Tom's (Michael Zoulis)
        says he doesn't care for the Seinfeld show, but also mentioned that he was never given a
        penny to have his restaurant façade used on the show, so maybe that's why.

        Sidenote:  It's been mentioned that Tom's Restaurant was the inspiration for the Suzanne
        Vega song entitled, interestingly enough, "Tom's Diner". While it is true that *a* Tom's
        Restaurant is the inspiration for that song, there was some doubt as to whether is was the
        Tom's on 112th and Broadway in Manhattan, or the Tom's in Brooklyn, on Washington Ave and
        Sterling Place. There's said to be a plaque on the wall in the Brooklyn Tom's that sheds light
        (The inscription of the plaque is, "I came, I saw, I wrote.  -Suzanne Vega").  In "Portrait of an
        Artist", a promotional album released in 1987, Vega puts the issue to rest.  It was the
        Manhattan Tom's.  (Maybe someone should contact the owner of the Brooklyn Tom's and
        ask about the plaque...)  For a thorough deconstruction of this song, click here.

4.18  What are the various nicknames of the main characters?

George Costanza: Art Vandelay; an alias often used by George. (See 4.7)
At one point George wanted to be known as "T-Bone", but his co-workers at Kruger Industrial
Smoothing nicknamed him "Koko" instead, and later, "Gammy".
George revealed that if he were to be a porn star, his name would
be "Buck Naked".
Jerry frequently calls George "Biff", referring to the Biff Loman character in Arthur Miller's
Death of a Salesman.

Cosmo Kramer: H. E. (Or possibly A.G.) Pennypacker; in "The Puerto Rican Day", Kramer poses
as Pennypacker, an interested buyer in an apartment, in order to use the bathroom. Kramer
appeared as Pennypacker to get revenge on a clothing store by repricing all the merchandise
in their store with his pricing gun.  Another pseudonym was Dr. Peter von Nostrand; he tried
to get Elaine's medical chart to erase the negative comments her doctor had made. Kramer
used the name Martin van Nostrand when he auditioned for the role of himself on the show
’Jerry’.  Kramer has also been referred to as "Assman" in reference to the licence plate the
state of New York accidentally gave to him. Other nicknames such as "K-man" were short-lived.

Jerry Seinfeld: Kal (or Kel or Kjell) Varnsen; the arch-rival of Pennypacker and a wealthy
developer/industrialist.  Vannsen, Pennypacker and Vandelay make an appearance together in
"The Puerto Rican Day".  Kel Varnsen also answered the phone of Vandelay Industries to aid in
George's unemployment fraud.

Elaine Benes: Susie; after a co-worker mistakenly calls her Susie. Susie was then pawned off
by Elaine as a different person so that complaints against Elaine appeared to be against this
employee Susie. Susie was "bumped off" when the situation with her co-worker became too
complicated.  Elaine also used the name ‘Paloma’ when posing as Uncle Leo’s nurse.

4.20  Was that "Puddy" as the voice of Superman in the American Express ad with Jerry?

        Yes, Patrick Warburton did provide the voice of Superman in a 1998 American Express
        television ad. The cartoon Superman resembles Warburton, with his squinty eyes and broad
        shoulders. Jerry is an avid Superman fan.

4.21  What occupation did George always want to have?

        George always wanted to pretend to be an architect [The Stakeout].  He  once pretended to
        be a marine biologist [The Marine Biologist] because Jerry told their friend from college that
        was what George did for a living, so he had to play the part. George was talking to Jerry, earlier
        in the episode, about the TV show he saw about whales and mentioned how fascinating it was.
        That's probably why Jerry blurted out marine biologist when the old friend asked about George.

        George yelling into the phone while the Astros front office men are calling from their plane.

        Members of the New York Mets front office [The Millennium]: In a meeting, the Mets make an offer to George
        for a vacant front office position at Shea Stadium. But in order for the Mets to hire George, they tell him the
        catch: He has to get fired from the Yankees first. In the end, however, despite George's valiant attempts to make

5.0  Specific episode questions.

Top

5.1  Who won "The Contest"?

        Kramer was out first. He saw a nude woman in an apartment across the street, and lasted about 2 more minutes.
        Elaine was next. She shared an aerobics class with John F. Kennedy Jr. and caved the next day. This leaves George
        and Jerry. In "The Puffy Shirt", we hear George profess to have won the Contest, but in "The Finale", George
        confesses to lying about winning the contest.

Top

5.2  What were the 'Bizarros' in "The Bizarro Jerry"?

        Here's a list (in more or less chronological order):

        1.  Elaine orders a tuna sandwich; ordinarily she's "anti-tuna" because it's not "dolphin safe".

        2.  Elaine wants to break up with Kevin and "just be friends" and he loves the idea.  Jerry would never go
             for this.  In fact, he tried in “The Deal” and it didn’t work out.

        3.  Feldman has a great idea and doesn't act on it.  Kramer often has ridiculous ideas, and usually acts on them.

        4.  The 'Bizarros' go to the library to read. The real gang wouldn't do this.

        5.  The 'Bizarro' gang eats at Reggie's, the real gang eats at Monk's.

        6.  The 'Bizarros' give money to those less fortunate.  The real gang is not often this generous.  (Although, I recall
             Kramer giving leftovers to a guy on the street once).

        7.  Kevin's apartment is the same as Jerry's, only reversed.

        8.  Kevin had a unicycle hanging on the wall where Jerry hangs his bicycle.

        9.  Kevin had jars of pasta lined up on the shelf where Jerry keeps his cereal boxes.

        10.  Feldman rang Kevin's doorbell and waited to be acknowledged, where Kramer prefers 'the pop in'.

        11.  Elaine is berated for taking olives from Kevin's fridge, she eats from Jerry's fridge without reprisals.

        12.  Fargus (Bizarro Newman) works for Federal Express, Newman, of course, is a postal employee.

        13.  Kevin did one of Jerry's 'Newman's (you all know what I mean) only it was for Fargus, and instead of the
              'damn that Newman' attitude Jerry usually exhibits, Kevin's exclamation had more of a 'what a great guy
              that Fargus is' feel to it.

        14.  The 'Bizarros' were overjoyed at receiving Bolshoi ballet tickets. The real gang would have preferred a
               sporting event or the movies.

        15.  Elaine's 'Get out!' hurt Kevin.  Her 'Get out!'s never hurt Jerry.

        16.  Gene reported the pay phone that was giving free long distance calls.  George would have looked for a way to
              profit from  this.

        17.  Feldman brought groceries.  Kramer usually just eats Jerry's food without an offer to pay or restock.

        18.  The 'Bizarros' shared a group hug and Kevin mentioned how much he loved the rest of them.
              (Wait a minute.  After Jerry's emotional turnaround [The Serenity Now], I don't know if we can count
              this one any longer. )

Top

5.3  Is the Wiz [The Junk Mail] Norm Macdonald's (SNL) brother?

        No, the "Wiz" guy was Toby Huss, originally from Iowa. His only SNL connection is his work with former

        co-producer Steve Higgins on the old Comedy Central "Higgins Boys and Gruber" show. He was also in the

        "A Change Will Do You Good" Sheryl Crow video with Molly Shannon (SNL) (he played the doctor). The

        press release for the video said that he'd be in SNL's '97-'98 cast, but apparently that didn't happen.

Top

5.4  What game are Estelle Costanza and her friends playing in "The Handicap Spot"?

        The game is MahJongg and involved little wooden tiles. The game is similar to Rummy; the object is to get the

        highest score by arranging the tiles into runs (straights) or groups of 3 or more matching tiles. The tiles are

        traditionally made of ivory, but plastic is acceptable in more modest sets. A high quality MahJongg set can

        cost several thousand dollars. More information on the game can be found at http://www.mahjongg.com.

Top

5.5  Delores? Mulva? Gipple? (or What was Jerry's girlfriend's name in "The Junior Mint"?)

        During "The Junior Mint" Jerry realizes he doesn't know his girlfriend's name, but he does however
        know that her name rhyme with a female body part. Jerry and George think of a few names that it might
        be such as Gipple (nipple) and Mulva (vulva). Jerry calls her Mulva and the whole thing backfires and she
        breaks up with him. At the end of the episode Jerry calls out "Delores!", which rhymes with clitoris.

        The pronunciation of this word had been under debate in alt.tv.seinfeld for some time.
        The entry for this word in Merriam Webster Dictionary, located at
        http://www.m-w.com/cgi-bin/dictionary

Top

5.6  Wasn't there a lawsuit over this very issue?

        Yes. Miller Brewing Company fired Jerold Mackenzie, 54, in 1993 after he told Patricia Best about the
        show--then gave her a photocopy of a dictionary page with the definition of the body part in question.
        She filed a sexual harassment charge against him with the company.  Mackenzie was awarded $1.5 million
        after the jury decided the joke did not qualify as sexual harassment.

5.7  Who is Stein Ericson?  (referenced in "The Reverse Peephole")

            Jerry: So, Puddy wears a man fur?
            Elaine: He was struttin' around the coffee shop like Stein Erickson.

        Stein Ericson was an Olympic Gold Medal skiing champion in 1954. and
        is the current Ski Director at the Deer Valley Resort Ski Resort
 

Top

5.8  Why did Jerry call Kramer 'Kessler' in the pilot episode?

        At the time the pilot was taped, Jerry and Larry were still not sure if Kenny Kramer (the inspiration for
        Cosmo Kramer) was going to let them use his name. The original name for the character (if Kenny had put the
        kibosh on the deal) was "Hoffman". Jerry called him Kessler in the episode, and  shortly after that Kenny gave
        his blessing so Hoffman/Kessler became Kramer. I also heard from Kenny that "Bender" was another possible
        name that Larry David considered, and that he was paid the princely sum of $5,000 for granting the naming
        rights.

Top

5.9  Is there a Superman reference in every episode?

        While it's true that both TV Jerry and real-life Jerry are big fans of Superman, and that references to
        Superman (and other comic book super heroes) are regular occurrences on the show, and despite the list that
        has been circulating throughout the Internet for years, it is not true that every episode includes a reference.
        In fact, of the 180 episodes, approximately 52 of them do not include any references at all, that's nearly 30%

        The Superman magnet made its first appearance during Season 4 in "The Shoes" (episode #56), and the Superman
        figurine first appears on Jerry's shelving unit a year later in "The Stall" (episode #76)

        Superman references;  (19 verbal)

        "The Stock Tip" (#5)  George and Jerry discuss whether Superman's heightened senses included a heightened sense
        of humor.

        "The Cafe" (#24)  In Jerry's closing monologue, he talks about super heroes being professional good deed doers.
        "It's tough to do a good deed. Just look at your professional good deed doers; Your lone rangers, your
        Superman, your Batman, your Spiderman, your Elasticman. They are all wearing disguises, masks over their faces.
        Secret identities. Don't want people to know who they are. It's too much aggravation. "Superman, yeah thanks
        for saving my life, but did you have to come through my wall? I'm renting here. I've got a security deposit.
        What am I supposed to do?"

        In "The Tape" (#25)  When George orders the baldness cure from China, Jerry says, "Imagine no baldness.
        It'd be like a nation of Supermen."

        "The Implant" (#59)  Elaine, referring to Jerry while talking to Sidra in the sauna, "Does he talk about Superman
        all the time?"

        In "The Smelly Car" (#61)  Jerry says he has no choice but to sell the car.
        Jerry: You don't understand what I'm up against. This is a force more powerful than anything you can imagine.
                   Even Superman would be helpless against this kind of stench..

        "The Lip Reader" (#70)  George compared knowing a lip reader to having Superman as a friend.  Jerry then
        compared the power to X-ray vision.

        "The Stall" (#76)  When George went to visit Elaine's 'mimbo', Tony, after the rock climbing accident, he brought
        Tony some Superman comic books.

        In "The Marine Biologist" (#78)  when Jerry was concerned with getting Testikoff to admit he threw the
        organizer out the window to help the woman it hit:
        Elaine: Why are you so interested, you want to take her out?
        Jerry:  You know when Superman saves someone no one asks if he's trying to hit on her!
        Elaine: Well you're not Superman.
        Jerry:  Well you're not Lois Lane.

        In "The Stand In" (#80)  while Jerry is trying to cheer up Fulton in the hospital, he mentions Superman.
        Jerry:  ...and this whole justice league, Batman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman. You mean to tell me
                    Superman can't cover everything?
        Fulton (laughing and coughing):  Stop!
        Jerry:  For crying out loud, He's Superman!. (Fulton stops laughing, Jerry's face is stunned) Fulton?
                    (looks at him) Fulton?

        In "The Chinese Woman" (#90)  Jerry spots Frank with a man wearing a cape.
        George:  I don't trust men in capes.
        Jerry:  You can't cast aspersions on someone just because they're wearin' a cape. .. Superman wore a cape..
        And I'll be damned if I'm gonna stand here and let you say something bad about him.

        "The Race" (#96)  When Jerry and Duncan race, the Superman theme music is playing.

        "The Switch" (#97)  Jerry, talking about the woman who would not laugh at his jokes, "...jokes kept bouncing off
        her like Superman."

        "The Face Painter" (#109)  When George learned that his unreturned "I love you" was not returned because the
        woman he said it to may have been hard of hearing, he said, "It's like Superman flew around the world and reversed
        time."

        "The Secret Code" (#117)  Jerry's Bank card PIN number is "Jor-El", Superman's father’s name.

        "The Seven" (#123)  Jerry, referring to the woman who wears the same dress every day, "Does she wear the same
        dress every day or does she have a bunch of them like Superman?"  Jerry also called her apartment "the Fortress
        of Solitude".

        In "The Invitations" (#125)  Jerry and Jeannie Steinman read Superman comics together

        "The Bizarro Jerry" (#137)  Elaine begins spending time with three men who seem to be Bizarro
        duplicates/opposites of Jerry, George and Kramer. Bizarro Jerry even had a Bizarro statue in place of
        Jerry's Superman figurine.

        The Superman theme plays at the beginning of "The Clip Show" (#177, #178).
 

        Tangential references:

        In "The Revenge" (#12)  Jerry  refers to Kramer's scheme to sabotage a washing machine
        Jerry:  If only you could put your mind to something worthwhile. You're like Lex Luthor.

        In "The Boyfriend (1)" (#34)  Keith Hernandez says, "I love your bit on Jimmy Olsen."

        In "The Watch" (#46)  after finding out George talked Dalrymple down to $8000 for the pilot,
        said, "You know, this is how they negotiate in the bizarro world."

        In "The Outing" (#57)  Jerry convinces the NYU reporter that he's not gay.
        Sharon:  Oh, can you ever forgive me?
        Jerry:  I dunno... [they kiss again] Alright, I forgive you...
        Sharon:  Y'know the funny thing is, I was attracted to you immediately.
        Jerry: I was attracted to you, too. You remind me of Lois Lane.

        In "The Mom and Pop Store" (#94)  Jerry, in response to Elaine saying she'd been snooping around to find out
        why he wasn't invited to Tim Whatley's party, said, "Ahh! What'd you find out, Lois?"

        "The Caddy", (#122)  Jerry refers to Sue Ellen Mischke as "Elaine's Lex Luthor".

        In "The Cartoon" (#169)  Jerry makes fun of Elaine's drawing ability, as she wants to submit a cartoon to
        the New Yorker Magazine
        Elaine: It's better than your drawings of naked Lois Lane.
        Jerry: Where did you see that? Those are private!!

        In "The Strongbox" (#170)  Jerry make fun of Elaine's 'super hero' boyfriend, who he finds out is homeless,
        by saying, "Maybe his girlfriend is Lois Loan.".

        of the 180 episodes.  When the survey is complete, the list of non-Superman episodes will be added to the FAQ.)

5.10  Why did Elaine say "maybe the dingo ate your baby" in "The Stranded"?

        In "The Stranded", an annoying party-goer keeps saying things like "Where is my finance?",  “I think I've lost the
        poor baby", Elaine responds by saying (in an Australian accent) "Maybe the dingo ate your baby!" The line is an
        allusion to the Meryl Streep movie "A Cry in the Dark" (“Evil Angels" in Australia) "The story of a mother whose
        child was killed in an animal attack, only to have herself accused of the infant's murder"

5.11  What is the name of the song used in final segment of "The Clip Show"?

        The name of the song is "Time of your Life (Good Riddance)" by Green Day
        from their album Nimrod.  You can hear a 30 second clip here.

5.12  Who is Mary Beth Whitehead, as referenced in "The Bottle Deposit"?

        In "The Bottle Deposit", Jerry referred to Tony's stealing his car as "pulling a Mary Beth Whitehead".
        In 1985, Mary Beth Whitehead was involved in what is believed to be the first US Court case concerning
        surrogate motherhood.

        "...because Elizabeth Stern was unable to carry a pregnancy, she and her husband William contracted to pay
        $10,000 to Mary Beth Whitehead to act as a surrogate. William Stern's sperm was artificially injected into
        Ms. Whitehead's uterus and she successfully conceived.  But after the child was born, she would not accept the
        money, and refused to hand over the baby. This led to a battle for possession of the child between the biological
       father and the biological mother, which ended in a lawsuit."

        Jerry was comparing the surrogate mother's attempt to regain possession of the baby she gave birth to with
        Tony's attempt to gain possession of the car he became obsessed with.

5.13  Can I have more information on "Festivus"?

        Sure, here is a mini-FAQ about Festivus;

        1.  Who invented Festivus?

          Frank Costanza.

        2.  What is the reason Frank invented Festivus?

            Frank "invented" Festivus after getting into a fight in a toy store when he and another man both grabbed
            for the last doll.  (Frank wanted to buy a doll for George.  Go figure.)  Anyway, he decided that
            commercialization ruined Christmas and he would now celebrate Festivus.  A Festivus - for the rest of us.

        3.  When does Festivus take place?

            December 23rd.

        4.  What's with that wrestling thing?

            One of the traditions of Festivus is the Feats of Strength, where two of the
            celebrants must engage in a contest of some sort to determine which is stronger.

        5.  What is the pole made out of?  How big is it?  Was it passed around or mounted
             or what is the deal?

            The undecorated aluminum pole represented the non-commercial nature of the holiday.
            No tinsel, no ornaments.  It appeared to be approximately 8 or 9 feet tall and was
            probably placed in a corner of the living room, much like a Christmas tree.

        6.  What about the insults?

            That's another Festivus tradition, "The Airing of Grievances".  Before commencing
            Festivus dinner, you go around the table telling each other participant about all of
            the ways they have disappointed you throughout the year.

        7.  What does the Festivus meal consist of?

            Although it wasn't specifically mentioned, the plate Estelle brought into the dining
            room appeared to be spaghetti OR meatloaf, either topped with red sauce. (Open
            to interpretation)

        8.  Who can celebrate Festivus?

            Anyone at all.  It's nondenominational.  The practical answer, however, is that only
            Seinfeld fans can *truly* celebrate Festivus. ;)
 

        9.  Any other elements which I may not have inquired about would be greatly appreciated!

            Well, I think we've just about covered it.  Oh, except for the occasional 'Festivus miracle'
            that's been known to happen.

5.14  Is there a real 555-FILM?

        When Kramer was given the phone number 555-FILK (easily confused with 555-FILM) in "The Pool Guy"
       he was constantly called for movie show times. The actual NY phone number is 212-777-FILM. Kramer's
        "Hewwo and welcome to Movie phone" sounds very similar to the voice for the real number.

Top

5.15  What did the Silkwood/radiation reference in "The Shower Head" mean?

        In the movie "Silkwood", Meryl Streep worked in a nuclear power plant.  It was the practice
        at the plant that if there was any sign of radiation exposure, the affected people were
        stripped down, blasted with a high-powered hose and scrubbed clean.

        That movie is based on a true story involving Karen Silkwood, a technician working at a
        Kerr McGee plant involved in plutonium fuel production in the early 1970's.  She discovered
        dangerous cost-cutting methods were being used and she led a widely publicized effort to
        improve safety measures at the facility.

        Silkwood died (or was murdered) in a car crash in late 1974 during a period in which she was
        gathering evidence to support her claims.  An autopsy also confirmed she had been exposed
        to plutonium several times just before her death.

Top

5.16  What's the 'sausage music' in "The Blood"?

        In "The Blood", Kramer and Newman are seen making sausages in Jerry's kitchen accompanied
        by some festive music.  The song they're playing is "Mañana (is soon enough for me)".  Originally
        recorded by Peggy Lee, the version used in the show is the Hammond version performed by
        Jackie Davis.  (Capitol Records Ultra-Lounge series, volume 2, "Mambo Fever".)

Top

5.17  Why did Jerry refer to himself as ‘Jerry Cougar Mellencamp’ in “The Stakeout”?

        Jerry said this in response to having his cousin Artie Levine pronounced le-veen correct his pronunciation to
        le-vine.  It's a reference to John Cougar who changed his name to John Cougar Mellencamp after his first hit
        album.

Top

5.18  What is the ‘Algonquin Round Table’? (referenced in “The Phone Message”)

        Jerry was deriding Donna's friends who liked the Dockers commercial when he called them "a regular Algonquin
        Round Table".  The Algonquin Round Table was named for a group of famous intellectuals who used to meet at the
        Algonquin Hotel in NYC after WWII.  The implication was that Jerry thought Donna's friends were not too bright.

Top

5.19  Who is ‘Johnny Yuma’? (referenced in “The Heart Attack”)

        When Kramer tells Jerry that holistic healer Tor Eckman was a rebel, Jerry replied, "A rebel? Johnny Yuma
        was a rebel. Eckman is a nut."  This is a reference to an old Johnny Cash song called "The Rebel-Johnny Yuma"
        The first line of the song goes, "Johnny Yuma was a rebel."
        Side note:  Kramer sings this song to himself while waiting on hold for Dr. Reston in "The Wallet".

Top

5.20  What is ‘Lara’s Theme’?  (referenced in “The Deal”)

        "Lara's Theme" aka "Somewhere My Love" was a song from the film/play "Dr. Shivago."  Jerry mentions it when
        rejecting a music box for Elaine's birthday.  "Too relationshippy.  She opens it up, she hears that 'Lara's Theme',
        I'm dead."

Top

5.21  What is ‘Chappaquiddick’?  (referenced in “The Baby Shower”)

        Jerry, referred to a distant cousin of the Kennedy family talking at his wedding, You should have heard him talking
        about Chappaquiddick - trying to blame the whole thing on bad directions...."  This is a reference to a now infamous
        incident that took place near Chappaquiddick, Massachusetts in 1969, where Ted Kennedy drove his car off a
        bridge and abandoned his date to drown in the sinking car.  For more info, click here.

5.22  Who was ‘Sakharov’?  (referenced in “The Baby Shower”)

        Kramer refers to the Soviet cable guy as the "Sakharov of cable guys" because he escaped from the gulag.
        A reference to Andraei Sakharov who was a Soviet nuclear weapons designer who ended up investigating the gulags,
        fighting for human rights and winning the Nobel Peace Prize.

Top

5.23  What is ‘lockjaw’?  (referenced in “The Dog”)

        Jerry, talking about the dog in his care,, said, "He's deranged.  Maybe he's got rabies. I can get lockjaw."
        Tetanus, a bacterial disease often referred to as Lockjaw because initial symptoms involve muscular stiffness or
        spasms in the jaw, is often caused by dog bites when the puncture wound becomes infected.

Top

5.24  Who are ‘Yukon Jack’ and ‘Cujo’?  (referenced in “The Dog”)

        Jerry, talking about the seating situation, says, "Two hundred seats on a plane, I gotta wind up next to Yukon Jack
        and his dog Cujo."  Yukon Jack was the nickname of author Jack London, best known for his survival struggle novels
        like "Call of the Wild" and "White Fang".  Cujo was the name of a rabid St. Bernard in the Stephen King novel and
        the movie of the same name.

Top

5.25  Who is ‘Dick Gregory’?  (referenced in “The Subway”)

        Jerry, referring to the eating habits of the naked fat man on the subway said, "I understand, I like good breakfast.
        Long as you don't wind up trapped in a room with bib overalls and pigtails, being counseled by Dick Gregory."
        Dick Gregory was an entertainer, activist, politician and liquid diet guru, and developer of the tremendously
        restrictive Bahamian Diet, best known for shaving 1,200 lb Walter Hudson down to 500 lbs.

Top

5.26  Who is ‘Sunny von Bulow’?  (referenced in “The Suicide”)

        Jerry refers to Martin's 'light' coma by saying, "That’s not too bad. It’s not like a Sunny von Bulow coma.
        The doctor said he should snap out of it anytime." In 1982, Claus von Bulow stood trial for trying to murder
        his diabetic wife, Sunny, by administering a large dose of insulin.  She did not die, rather she slipped into a coma
        where she remains to this day.  Von Bulow was convicted but the decision was overturned two years later on appeal.

5.27  Who was ‘Jose Jimenez’?  (referenced in “The Boyfriend (1)”)

        Jose Jimenez was a TV character played by Bill Dana on the Steve Allen Show in the 50's and 60's.
        Jose was a Hispanic “Man on the Street” interview subject who held various occupations including elevator operator,
        Olympic bobsledder and astronaut.  He always introduced himself by saying, "My name, Jose Jimenez."  Most of the
        comedy was based on misunderstanding the English language while being interviewed.

        For example, part of the bobsledder interview went like this.

        Steve Allen:  So you say you're a bobsledder.
        Jose Jimenez:  I'm a skier.
        Steve Allen:  But I thought you said you were a bobsledder, not a skier.
        Jose Jimenez:  I'm a skier (scared) to go on the bobsled.

5.28  Who is ‘C. Everett Koop’?  (referenced in “The Boyfriend (2)”)

        Jerry compares dating Elaine, a rabid anti-smoker with dating C. Everett Koop.  Koop was US Surgeon General
        under Reagan from 1982 through 1989, and was known for being very outspoken about health concerns, especially
        the dangers of smoking.

6.0  What are some of the oddities and inconsistencies in SEINFELD?

Top

6.1  Why does the farm girl at the end of 'The Bottle Deposit' refer to Newman as Norman?

        I once heard that this question was posed to Jerry before a taping by an audience member, and he said that the girl
        said "Norman" instead of Newman. Larry David said it added an additional level of humor, a woman telling a man
        she’ll never forget him, while getting his name wrong.

6.2  Other Oddities and Interesting Tidbits

        During "The Parking Garage", when the group finally makes it back to the car, the car wouldn't start. Viewers can
        see the heads of the cast moving with laughter at the end of the show.

        Another oddity, in "The Masseuse" (aired 11/18/93), Elaine dates a man with the same name as a serial killer.
        Joel Rifkin. They decide he should change his name, and one of Elaine's suggestions in O.J. We all know what
        happened a few months later...

        During the scene in "The Contest" where George's mother was laid up in the hospital and George comes to visit,
        she complains to him how hungry she is but he's preoccupied by the nurse giving a female patient a sponge bath,
        so he tosses a box of Tic-tacs on her lap.  Estelle Harris admitted during an interview that this was unscripted.
        Jason happened to have some Tic-Tacs in his pocket and his decision to toss them to Estelle was purely impromptu.
        She went on to say that this gesture made her laugh so hard, they had to delay shooting the rest of the scene by 20
        minutes.

        The name of Jerry and George's softball team is "Friends of Clyde". (from "The Pony Remark"). No other mention
        of Clyde is ever made.  It was likely an inside joke.

        George mentions in "The Heart Attack" that he's always loved his Blackhawks jacket, but we've never seen him wear
        it, before or since.

        Kramer had a dog in the first two episodes [The Seinfeld Chronicles, The Stakeout].  The dog disappeared without
        a trace or an explanation.

        In "The Dealership", George came up with a number of Twix candy bars for his ‘Candy Line-Up'.  George must have
        gotten these candy bars from somewhere, but he apparently did not eat anything while he was there, as his hunger
        wasn't satiated until he ate the Arby's sandwich in the cab on the ride home.  If George was so hungry, why didn't he
        eat something from the store where he got the candy bars?  And how did he get to the store, he didn't have a ride?
        It's possible the store was within walking distance, but this still doesn't explain why he didn't eat something.

        It's well known that Jerry is a big Superman fan.  Coincidentally, Jerry's father's name was Kal, and Superman's
        ‘Kryptonian’ name is Kal-El.

        Also, in the street scenes in a number of episodes, a "Kal's Signs" sign can be seen hanging over a store front.
        This is a nod to Jerry's father, who was in the sign making business.

6.3  Continuity errors and inconsistencies

        Continuity errors

        In "The Outing", Estelle claims that the "super" or landlord had to help her to the hospital, after reading about
        George's "metamorphosis" in the paper, but the Costanzas don't live in an apartment.

        In "The Dinner Party", Jerry is shown eating a black and white cookie and, during one scene, each time the camera
        angle changed the number of bites missing and the left-right orientation of the cookie changed.

        In "The Soup", George orders a bowl of chili, but is given a bowl of tomato soup. (Either it was o soup, or the
        thinnest chili I’ve ever seen.)

        In "The Boyfriend (2)", at the end, when the phone rings and George runs out of the bathroom to tell Kramer to
        "Say Vandelay!  Say Vandelay!", he trips and the newspaper he’s carrying drops to the floor to George's right. In
        the next shot, the newspaper is in his other hand.

        In "The Wife", during the scene where Jerry and Meryl (Courteney Cox) are arguing over who had the can opener,
        there's a six pack case of bottles on Jerry's kitchen counter. One bottle has been removed and is sitting on the side
        of the case closest to the door.  As they switch shots, the bottle moves back and forth, alternating from one side of
        the six to the other a la the black and white cookie in "The Dinner Party".

        In "The Secretary", when Kramer is shown in the dressing room wearing only his underwear, we can see his wallet
        tucked into the waistband of his shorts. A moment later, the wallet is not there, and we never saw Kramer remove it.

        In "The Seven", during the scene where Newman acts as arbitrator to determine whether Kramer or Elaine should
        keep the bicycle, the wedding band on Newman's finger mysteriously disappears.

        In "The English Patient", during the scene where Peterman and Elaine are watching the movie, the extras sitting
        around them in the theater change from one scene to the next.

        In "The Butter Shave", in the scene where Jerry comes off stage after "bombing" on purpose, the neck area of his
        T-shirt is sweat soaked. In the next scene, the shirt is bone dry, and the sweat stain returns one scene later.

        In "The Postponement", Elaine crushes a beer can. She crushed it right beside the cutting board on Jerry's counter
        then left the apartment, they cut back to Jerry and Kramer and the crushed can is now sitting on the cutting board.

        In "The Comeback", Kramer didn't know that it was possible to come out of a coma, but years earlier in
        "The Suicide", he knew.

        In "The Nap" George was seen reading People magazine under the desk, and he tucked the magazine into the shelf
        under the desk when he went to lunch.  Steinbrenner came in later to look for him but he hadn't gotten back yet,
        and the same People magazine was sitting on the corner of the desk.

        In "The Revenge", Kramer says Newman wants to commit suicide because he has "no job, no woman". Later we find
        out that Newman is a Postal employee, thus having a job.

        In "The Seinfeld Chronicles", George brought a jar of pennies to the bank to have them rolled.  They insisted he roll
        them himself.  Later at Jerry's apartment, George has about $8 in rolled pennies on the coffee able, yet the level of
         pennies in the jar is the same as it was in the bank.

        In "The Scofflaw", George likens wearing glasses if you don't need them to using a wheelchair if you're not
        handicapped.  And then in "The Little Jerry", when George found out Elaine's boyfriend shaved his head, again he
        likened shaving a good head of hair to using a wheelchair if you don't need one. But in "The Butter Shave", what do
        we see George doing?  Riding a 'Little Rascal' (motorized wheelchair) even though he is not physically impaired.

        In "The Calzone" George makes a deal with Newman to pick up Italian food and deliver it to Yankee stadium because
        it was "on his route".  There's no way a single mail route runs through Manhattan AND the Bronx, where the stadium
        is located.

        The interior that is seen when Kramer sometimes opens his door consists of some hangers and stuff like in a hallway.
        But when seen through the peephole [The Reverse Peephole], you see Kramer's living room with the wooden wallpaper
        and a couch and some pasta figures.

        In "The Secretary", in the scene where Jerry busts Donna, the dry cleaner's wife, wearing his mother's fur coat, as
        Donna walks up to Elaine, Donna is holding her long purse strap in her right hand only, then switches it to her left
        hand and puts the strap over her left shoulder.  The purse hangs below her left hip.  She just had placed the long
        purse strap over her shoulder as she left the dressing room area walking away from Jerry.

        In "The Jimmy", Kramer is wearing the training shoes that George got from Jimmy. In one scene in Jerry's
        apartment, Kramer has his feet up on the coffee table and the brand name of the show is clearly visible on the
        bottom, and in other shots in the same scene, there is a piece of white tape covering up the brand name.
 

        Inconsistencies

        In "The Seinfeld Chronicles", there is a scene in which Jerry and George are moving a futon into the apartment.
        Jerry mentioned that if his father was helping move, he'd have a cigarette in his mouth, implying that his father
        smoked so much, he would probably smoke while moving furniture. After this mention, we have not ever seen or heard
        of Morty smoking.

        In "The Statue", George says his parents used to keep the statue in question on their mantel.  But in a prior
        episode, "The Pledge Drive", George says his life would have been different if only his parents had a mantel.

        In "The Money", Frank says he and Estelle have slept is separate beds for 30 years, but in "The Cigar Store
        Indian",  the Costanzas have one bed.

        In "The Dog", Elaine and George find they have nothing in common apart from Jerry. George asks if Elaine has ever
        seen Jerry vomit, and they both make the same gesture to simulate vomiting.  Now this was in episode #21, aired
        Oct. 9,  1991. In "The Dinner Party" (#77, aired 2/3/94), Jerry mentions his 'vomit streak' of 13 years. His last
        vomit was in June 1980.  The problem is Jerry and Elaine did not know each other 13 years before this, so how did
        she know what the right gesture to share with George was, just 3 years earlier, if she had never seen it?

        In "The Kiss Hello", when Jerry complains about his photo having been defaced, Kramer says it's ok because he made
        double prints, but he used a Polaroid camera to take the picture.  You can't make double prints of a Polaroid photo.

        In "The Contest", George says that his parents weren't at home because they were supposed to be at work. What
        job does Estelle have, and what was his father doing in Chicago?

        In "The Bris", George mentions that he was never the type to drive a convertible because of his hair, but a year
        later, in "The Mom and Pop Store", he buys a Chrysler LeBaron convertible.

        In "The Foundation", Elaine represents the Urban Sombrero as an utter failure, and hear several men on the subway
        talk about how the oversized hat ruined their lives.  But in "The Checks", the umbrella vendor on the street,
        complaining about slow business, says, "...now we got that damned Urban Sombrero to deal with" implying that the
        wide brimmed hat was so popular, its sales were actually hurting the umbrella business.

        In "The Wink", Jerry stuffs three of "'Grandma Mimma's" napkins full of mutton into his jacket pockets, but Holly
        says only two were missing.  Also napkins were falling out of the pocket as Elaine was putting on the jacket, but they
        were tucked in while she was being chased by the dogs.  If she didn’t know they were there, how did they get tucked
        back into the pocket?

        In "the Wink" (which first aired on 10/12/95), Jerry ponders whether it would be better to date a deaf person or
        a blind person, but two years earlier, in "The Lip Reader (first aired 10/28/93), Jerry dates a hearing impaired
        woman.

        In "The Library", Mr. Bookman said he started working at the library in 1971.  He also mentioned that he'd been
        working there for 25 years, but the episode first aired in 1991, so 25 years earlier would have been 1966, not 1971.

        Absence of Malice - [The Junk Mail] Kramer meets with the Postmaster General (played by Wilfred Brimley) in a
        takeoff of the scene Brimley played in the movie.

        Apocalypse Now - [The Chicken Roaster]   The encounter between Elaine and Peterman is a parody of the first

        had "L-O-V-E" and "H-A-T-E" tattooed on his knuckles.  Mitchum also played the creepy psycho in the original
        "Cape Fear", and the remake references this fact with the tattooed knuckles. Mitchum also appeared in the remake.

                harem, scare 'em, rip 'em, tear 'em,
                tay-taw-toe.

        his brothers.

        The Elephant Man - [The Pick] When Jerry confronts Tia by the elevator, he yells out to the crowd that gathers,

        The Fugitive - [The Sponge]  While searching for contraceptive sponges, Elaine mimics Tommy Lee Jones when she
        says she's performing a "...hard-target search of every drug store, general store,  health store and grocery store

        ala Donald Pleasance in the movie.

        JFK - [The Boyfriend] Takeoff of the Zapruder film showing the Kennedy assassination.
        (Interesting note: Wayne Knight played 'Numa' in JFK and 'Newman' in Seinfeld and takes the same spot in the
        courtroom re-enactment with Jerry as he did with Kevin Costner in the movie.)

        Lassie - [The Andrea Doria] Kramer takes dog medicine, starts to act like a dog, witnesses a problem at the Old Mill
        restaurant, runs to get the police, "What is it boy?  Trouble at the old mill?"

        Just like Szell being chased through NY's diamond district by the Jewish shoppers and business people who
        recognized him.

        Midnight Cowboy - [The Mom and Pop Store]  George buys 'John Voight's car'  Final scene is Jerry and Kramer in
        the back of the bus.

        Phenomenon - [The Abstinence] George becomes a genius, learns Portuguese, etc.

        Platoon - [The Fatigues] Frank has a flashback about when he was a cook in Korea.

        lives.

        Schindler's List - [The Raincoats] Aaron laments that if he sold his ring, he could have bought the Seinfelds one more

7.5  Where can I find scripts to SEINFELD episodes?

        Scripts for all 180 episodes can be found on the web at:
        http://wave.prohosting.com/tnguym/scripts2.html
 

Top

7.6  Are there official books about SEINFELD?
        (reviews by Dave Antonoff)
        Well, there are a few books devoted to the subject, but only one is 'official'.
        (Note: All books listed can be purchased through Barnes & Noble online or Amazon

        "The Seinfeld Companion" (1993, from the publishers of Entertainment Weekly, written by Bruce Fretts) is
        essentially a Seinfeld dictionary, cataloging many catch phrases and symbolic images from the first few seasons.
        The drawback is it was published too long ago.  It only goes up to 'The Pilot'.  It’s been 12 years. I’ve given up hope
        for a 2nd volume.

        "Seinlanguage" (1993, written by Jerry Seinfeld) is essentially a collection of Jerry's comedy bits.  I own it, but I
        don't really like it.  The material is very humorous, but it just doesn't sound the same in my head when I'm reading
        it.  It's gotta come out of Jerry's mouth to be funny, but again, that's just my personal opinion.

        "Much Ado About Nothing" (1993, ECW Press, written by Josh Levine), is a standard, run of the mill biography.
        Some good information about Jerry's formative years and his career but the main drawback is the fact that it was
        written 6 years ago and so much has happened since then; it's dated material.

        "The Seinfeld Universe" (1996/1998 written by Greg Gattuso) is also not ‘official',  but it's a great source of info
        on the actors’ personal lives, and how they came to wind up on this show. Some insider info and some juicy tidbits
        make it worth buying.   Greg released an updated version of the book early in 98 with additional final season stuff.
        If you have a choice, get the newer one, but if you already have the original, there's not really enough extra to
        warrant purchasing the update (unless, like me, you've gotta have 'em all!)

        "The Real Seinfeld" (1998 Worldwide Literary Services, written by Mike Costanza and Greg Lawrence), as an
        attempt to cash in on the Seinfeld name is annoying but accepted, but as an attempt to further chronicle parts of
        Jerry's life before show business, it's one of the best sources available.  Mike Costanza was a good friend of
        Jerry's when they were younger and, in addition to giving Jason Alexander's character his name, Jerry and Larry
        David have also imbued George with many characteristics and idiosyncrasies from Mike's life.

        "Seinfeld Scripts" (1998, written by Jerry Seinfeld, Larry David, Larry Charles, Peter Mehlman)  Perhaps the only
        'official' Seinfeld book available (put out by Castle Rock Entertainment), it's simply a compilation of the complete
        scripts to the first 17 Seinfeld episodes. These are the shooting scripts, not taken verbatim from the show, so some
        lines are different.  Great for the hardcore fans who like to read along.  Also great for trivia buffs (you can pick
        up more detail from reading than from watching).

       "Letters from a Nut" (1997, Avon Books, written by Ted L. Nancy)  Jerry wrote the intro for the book.  He said he
        found the letters and shared them with some friends who loved them, so he put them in a book. Nobody knows who
        Ted Nancy is, but the book is also very comical. It's essentially a book of letters containing outrageous requests or
        comments written to legitimate corporations, followed by completely serious responses from those companies that
        'took the bait'.

        "More Letters from a Nut” (1998, written by Ted L. Nancy, Introduced by Jerry Seinfeld)  More of the same from
        the first book.  Jerry's intro delves further into the "Who is Nancy" question, but other than that, consider it
        "Letters Part II".

        Extra Nutty!  Even More Letters from a Nut!” (2000, Written by Ted L. Nancy)
        Yada yada yada, consider this ‘Letters’ part 3.

        There's also a 'book on tape' available from Amazon.com called "Writing - Seinfeld Style" (1996, Davenporrt
        Productions, written/recorded by Peter Mehlman.) which, although I haven't purchased it yet, sounds like a
        primer on how to write a more sophisticated sitcom.

        "You're a Super Yada, Yada, Yada Fan if...” (1998, written by Hugh Myrrh and Joe Kerr)  This was a disappointing
        attempt to cash in on "Seinfeld-mania".  I purchase each new Seinfeld related book as it is published because I'm
        interested in every aspect of my favorite TV show. Well, almost every aspect, as this book has shown me. The very
        first page starts out with, "Sorry trivia buffs, but tidbits like Kramer parking in purple 23 in episode 23 or his
        NYPD 331781-0404 mug shot number or Jerry's 555-8383 car phone number... ...didn't make the cut because this
        is not a book about trivia." So right off the bat, I mostly considered this book a waste of money. What the hell. I
        paid for it, may as well read it, right?  Mistake.  It's supposedly a book of thought provoking questions designed to
        promote conversation and exploration of feelings and motivations, but I found it something less than entertaining.
        The book uses moments and lines from the show to create such questions as "Have you ever been lost in a parking
        garage?" and "What's the longest non-vomiting streak you've ever had?" Granted, these questions, when posed by
        the Seinfeld writers, resulted in some of the greatest sitcom episodes in TV history, but when asked around a coffee
        table by mere fans, they fall flat. Very flat. In addition to the questions, there are also (a few on every page) enough
        "You're a super yada yada yada fan if..." entries to fill out a 190 page book, but rather than being humorous,
        they're downright silly. Like Jeff Foxworthy's "You might be a redneck if..." only without the humor.  Instead they
        serve only as reminders of specific moments within specific episodes. You're a super yada yada yada fan if... "12
        cent royalty checks arrive from Japan", or "when stuck in airports you gamble on arrival times". Besides the
        'dubious' content, the book is about 5"x6" and predominantly uses a monstrous font, giving it the appearance of a
        25 page booklet that bulked itself up to a 190 page book. To conclude, if there are a dozen different books about
        Seinfeld, make this one the 12th one you purchase.

         "How Well Do You Know Jerry. . . and His Friends?: A Trivia Book" (1998, Mass Market Paperback, written by
        Artie Mangravito) This is not a book, it's a pamphlet containing a few hundred random Seinfeld trivia questions
        followed by a few hundred answers.  My first reaction was to the cover, which features a silhouette of Jerry and
        his co-stars.  Talk about "unofficial", the author couldn't even use Jerry's face on the cover?  Anyway, the book
        might have been passable if the questions had been arranged in some sort of logical order, either by subject or
        chronology, and enough questions were included to make the book worth $8.  As it was published, it's very difficult
        to read and enjoy.  NOTE:  Do not attempt to use this book as the "final word" on any Seinfeld related discussion, as
        there are various mistakes strewn throughout the book.  The worst offender?
        Q: What is Jerry's address? A: 129 East 81st. St.
        Now, any fan worth his Snapple knows Jerry lives on West 81st St.  The bottom line is this.  Spend a few minutes
        with a search engine and the words "Seinfeld trivia" and you can do much better for free on the Internet than you
        can with this book.

        "Jerry Seinfeld: the Entire Domain" (1998 Birch Lane Press, written by Kathleen Tracy) Perhaps the best
        biography to date, if in part because it's the most recent and even covers some post-TV show stuff.  More oriented
        towards Jerry's professional life than his personal history, it almost seems at times to be a biography of the show,
        not the person. But there is plenty of info on Jerry's private life, his loves, his ambitions, etc.   But the TV show is
        the reason to read this book.  Tracy takes us through the entire 9 year run from conception to Finale, with lots of
        FAQworthy tidbits and includes an episode guide at the end.

        “Sein Off:  the Final Days of Seinfeld” (1998 Harper Perennial, written by Jerry Seinfeld, Michael Richards,
        and David Hume Kennerly)  A photojournalists dream; to be the only photographer on the set during the week of the
        Final episode taping.  This was Kennerly's assignment, and he completed it extremely well, capturing some of the
        quiet/secret moments fans rarely, if ever, get a glimpse of.  Wall to wall black and white photos of the cast and crew,
        the sets and props, and this is only half of the book. Along with the photos are some of the best, most sensitive, most
        revealing quotes from Jerry, Michael, Jason and Julia that have ever appeared in print.  This is only the 2nd 'coffee
        table book' that's worthy to sit on my coffee table.  (Kramer wrote the first one.)  Examples of Kennerly's work can
        be found here.
