    It's too bad the network scrapped this episode...sounds like it was great!

    For those of you who don't know. "The Bet" was an episode written before "the phone message" and included Jerry and Elaine betting $100 on whether or not she would buy a gun. Other parts include Kramer having sex with a stewardess and George and Jerry betting on if Kramer is telling the truth. A great scene of dialogue was talked about in the airport where George uses the alias R. Flemmer.---would have been hilarious!

    Network execs thought the gun content was too controversial. I'm pissed! Seinfeld lost episode never got produced.

    Yeah it would be nice to see that, because this whole thing just sounds weird. I dont see why they find this to be too controversial.

    That would have been great! I'm disappointed, but it does have a "The Contest" feel to it.

    I guess the idea behind "The Contest" was in a certain way to compensate for not having "The Bet". Just a thought.
