    • Lassie:

      The scene where Kramer is trying to tell the police officers about Elaine stabbing Alan at the Old Mill Restaurant is a spoof of Lassie. Often in Lassie episodes someone—usually Timmy—would get into trouble by, for example falling down at the old mill. Lassie would then run to someone for help but being unable to speak, would find it difficult to explain the situation much as Kramer did while coughing.

      Also, Kramer takes dog medication in this episode and exhibits other canine behavior further facilitating his transformation into Lassie.
