  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (19)

    • Jerry: You know what a good mechanic is worth? You can't compare that to sex.

    • Kramer: Have you ever met a proctologist? They usually have a very good sense of humor. You meet a proctologist at a party, don't walk away. Plant yourself there because you will hear the funniest stories you've ever heard. See, no one wants to admit to them that they stuck something up there. Never. It's always an accident. Every proctologist story ends in the same way… 'It was a million to one shot, doc, million to one.'

    • Kramer: It's Fusilli Jerry! It's made from fusilli pasta. See the microphone? Jerry: When did you do this? Kramer: In my spare time. You know, I'm working on one of you George. I'm using ravioli. See, the hard part is to find a pasta that captures the individual. Jerry: Why fusilli? Kramer: Because you're silly. Get it?

    • George: (about pleasuring his girlfriend) Give me a moan, something. I'd settle for a belch, for God's sake.

    • Jerry: We were in the garage. You know how garages are. They're conducive to sex talk. It's a high testosterone area.

    Trivia (5)

    • Technically, Puddy wasn't using Jerry's "move" at all. When confronted he tells Jerry that he'd been doing the move before he even met Jerry -- that all Jerry added was "the swirl". Jerry doesn't dispute that and adds that "the swirl" is the whole thing. If Puddy does a "pinch" at the end, then Jerry contributed nothing. It is of additional interest that Elaine couldn't have thought much of the move since as we learn in "The Mango" (Season 5) Elaine never had an orgasm while going with Jerry.

    • Earlier in the episode, Frank stops in to get his mail, and Estelle brags that Kramer made a pass at her. She tells him to take his mail and go home, implying that he is staying elsewhere. However, at the end of the episode, after Frank leaves the proctologist's office, George brings him back to the house, and Estelle starts raving about how worried she was that he hadn't come home yet. NOTE: When Frank arrives, Estelle says, "Where have you been, you were supposed to fix the stove!" In other words, he has not "come home", he is only there for that one purpose.

    • At the start of the episode, Jerry comments that David Puddy is his friend, and should have asked Jerry's permission before asking Elaine out. However, throughout the rest of the series there is no evidence that Jerry and Puddy are friends. It seems that they only know each other casually through Elaine.

    • At the end of the show, it seems that Kramer was right in assuming that the Assman was a proctologist. However, if he really were a proctologist, the license plate would also have an MD symbolon the left side.

    • Most states have decency restrictions for their vanity plates, and I don't believe that the state of New York would clear "ASSMAN," even if it were for a proctologist.

    Allusions (1)

    • Elaine: All those mechanics do is work all day with their hands and their big muscular arms on machines, and then they come home dripping with animal sexuality like Stanley Kowalski. This is an allusion to Stanley Kowalski, the character in Tennessee William’s play “A Streetcar Named Desire.” He was most famously portrayed by Marlon Brando in the 1951 film adaptation.
