Taking advantage of the situation, he and Susan go up north to her parent's rebuilt cabin. Elaine meets an old rival who's heir to the Oh Henry! candy bar fortune and has never worn a bra.

  • Agreed it's not the best ever, but still some absolutely classic Seinfeld moments!

  • George's story was ok, sadly, the rest wasn't.

  • Jerry and the gang find themselves in another whacky adventure. Will Kramer and Elaine get rich quick? Will Jerry ever find true love? Will George get a promotion? The answers to these and other questions are answered (kinda) in 'The Caddy'

  • Quotes (10)

    • Jackie Chiles: It's lewd, lascivious, salacious, outrageous!

    • Elaine: This woman has never, not once, ever, as long as I've known her, worn a bra. Jerry: That's just shameless.

    • George: It is all because of that car. See, Steinbrenner is like the first guy in at the crack of dawn. He sees my car, he figures I'm the first guy in. Then, the last person to leave is Wilhelm. He sees my car, he figures I'm burning the midnight oil. Between the two of them, they think I'm working an eighteen-hour day! Jerry: Locking your keys in your car is the best career move you ever made.

    • Jerry: You doing anything? Kramer: Nope. Jerry: You want to go down to the Bronx and see if there are any fliers on George's car? Kramer: Sure! Jerry: I could have said just about anything there, couldn't I?

    • (left on Jerry's answering machine) Frank Costanza: Jerry, it's Frank Costanza! Mr Steinbrenner's here, George is dead, call me back.

    Notes (2)

    • Armin Shimerman (Stan the caddy) is probably best known to TV audiences as Quark from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

    • In this episode Jerry mentions having to throw a rye up to a two-story window, in reference to the previous episode, "The Rye".

    Trivia (5)

    • Elaine refers to an incident in high school which involved Sue Ellen stealing her boyfriend. She makes a point of mentioning that the boyfriend's name was Tom Cosley. Tom Cosley was the name of a guy Julia Louis-Dreyfus actually dated in high school.

    • While in Jerry's apartment, Stan suggests to Kramer that he bring along a light jacket to the golf course. Then, a few moments later, they both leave, and turn up the hallway without going into Kramer's apartment for the jacket.

    • Goof: It is said that the bra in the courtroom is the same as the one Sue Ellen wore when Kramer saw her. In fact, that is the only reason it makes sense for the bra to be a piece of evidence or for Sue Ellen to try it on. However, when she tries it on, it is clearly very different from the one she wore earlier in the episode.

    • Actually Kramer never learns his lessons from lawsuits. He wasn't referring to the fact that he received no cash, It was his fault for accepting the coffee settlement when they were going to offer his money. He must have been referring to the caffeine rush. Jackie also takes on Kramer's case against the tobacco company, in which the settlement was a billboard of Kramer in the city.

    • Kramer says that he wont sue Sue Ellen because he "learned his lesson from that coffee company". As I recall, Kramer got free unlimited coffee after that case. It doesn't seem like something he would regret.

    Allusions (1)

    • Jackie Chiles: "You can't let the defendant have control of the key piece of evidence"
      Sue Ellen trying on the bra is an obvious reference to the OJ Simpson trial and the infamous "glove."
