    Andrea Doria

    By thefanof, Jul 14, 2010

    I was not that big a fan of this episode originally, but rewatching it on TBS made me realize how good it really is. From the way the Elaine and Kramer storylines come together in the final moment with Kramer acting like Lassie, to the rehashing of some of the more notable moments involving George in the show's history.

    The George storyline here was not very Larry David-esque, like a few of the later episodes, but it was still a very funny plot for our favorite short, slow-witted character. And the man did hit it dead on, he is chinless.moreless

    Pretty good episode.

    By cactusjack39, Feb 25, 2009

    The thing that I liked about this episode was its ridiculous relations and parody of certain aspects that real people have in their lives. I think that it was well written, well acted, and it was a good episode with decent comedy. My favorite aspects of the show had to be where George tells the apartment people all of his past troubles. It was just hilarious to see him beat out a survivor of a boat crash for the place. Elaine was funny with troubles about her date. Jerry and Kramer were also decent and it all made for a good episode. Thank you.moreless

    Elaine has a big head!?

    By Canogaparkcindy, Aug 09, 2008

    This episode was so funny. Elaine's plot line I liked the best, that was so weird the events that were happening to her, it's like the guy was creating the weird things that were happening to Elaine, the bird that flies in to her head that was hilarious! The A plot was just as funny, George must of been really shallow not to let an old guy take his apartment, I like how he was talking about "the past". The C plot with Jerry & Newman wasn't so interesting, Jerry & Newman are better enemy's. The D didn't develop but still funny, Kramer taking dog pills, now that's comedy.moreless

    This episode is hysterical. Jerry helps his enemy Newman get a transfer to Hawaii by helping deliver the mail, but it doesn't end as planned. Elaine dates a man who is a "bad breaker-upper" and gets offended when he calls her bighead. Meanwhile, George tries to win an apartment over an Andrea Doria survivor. He confesses his life story to the apartment committee and puts them to tears. Kramer has a bad cough and he sounds like a dog. He goes to the vet with the dog and uses the dog medicine. At the end, when someone asks for help, Kramer must go tell the cops and he acts just like a dog. Its a priceless moment.moreless

    Absolutely hilarious! George battles with an old man for an apartment, Elaine finds out that she has a big head, Kramer acts like a dog, and Jerry makes an alliance with Newman.

    This was a great episode. Kramer was really funny as he turned into a dog. He wouldn’t go to a real doctor about the cough he had. When he found a dog with the problem he decided that he would go to a Vet and that is where he ended up getting medicine. The part where Jerry gives him his medicine was really funny and at the end when he was acting like Lassie was great too. He did a really good job playing that role.

    Elaine is out on a blind date but she gets a message from the waiter that her date cannot make it because he had been stabbed. This attracts her to him and she decides that she must meet this guy. When a similar incident happens she finds out that he is a ‘bad breaker upper.’ When Elaine breaks up with him he tells her that she has a big head. This is funny because she brushes it off at first but it starts to bother her when a lot of freak this start to happen.

    Jerry’s part was alright, but I didn’t think it was as good as George and Kramer. Jerry helped Newman deliver some mail so he could possibly get a transfer. He didn’t get the transfer because one of his bosses knew it wasn’t him doing the work. The funny part was that he delivered mail too well. Too many people got their mail and that was how they knew it wasn’t Newman.

    The best part in this episode was George. He didn’t get the apartment across the hall because of an old man who had a sob story about being on the Andrea Doria. When George finds out that it wasn’t a huge disaster like the old man would like to think he tells is sad life to the tenants association. This was great because he told stories from old episodes that were classic. In a twist of fate the man who was the ‘bad breaker upper’ got the place, but not because of his life story but because he gave the super some cash.moreless
