Season 7 Episode 20

The Calzone

Aired Thursday 9:00 PM Apr 25, 1996 on NBC



  • Trivia

    • Strange that Jerry would consider a box of Cuban cigars an appropriate wedding present for George. In Season Four, when given a box of Cubans by Susan's father, George likes them so little, he gives them to Kramer.

    • Kramer says that he doesn't have a table but back in "The Good Samaritan", he says he falls and hits his head on the coffee table in his apartment.

    • We see Elaine smoking a cigar near the end of the episode. Yet throughout the series she consistently maintains that she HATES smoking.

    • All throughout the episode there are strange noises in the background, such as those that play at the end of an episode.

    • After being pulled over for blatant speeding, Jerry calls to Nikki to have her step out of the car and bring the officer his paperwork. In real traffic stops, cops get extremely jumpy if passengers do this without being asked to do so, whether they're supermodels or not.

    • Right at the end when the credits are rolling, look at the bag in George's left hand. It magically makes its way on top of the pizza box and then back to his left hand.

  • Quotes

    • George: (about George Steinbrenner) He fires people like it's a bodily function.

    • Newman: Let me be perfectly blunt. I don't care for you, Costanza. You hang out on the west side of the building with Seinfeld all day laughing it up, wasting your lives.

    • Jerry: You've got your shirt in my oven?
      Kramer: Well, I didn't have enough quarters for the dryer, but this is better anyway. And it's more convenient.
      Jerry: Oh, for both of us.
      Kramer: Yeah, and I have a lot more control. I got a shirt going for ten minutes at 325.
      Jerry: What's wrong with your oven?
      Kramer: I'm baking a pie.

    • George: Beautiful women… Ya know, they get away with murder. You never see one of them lift anything over three pounds. They do whatever they want, whenever they want to, and nobody can stop them.
      Jerry: She's like a beautiful Godzilla.
      George: And I'm thousands of fleeing Japanese!

    • George: (about Steinbrenner's love of the calzone) I'm like a drug dealer. I got the guy hooked. I'm having lunch at his desk every day this week… just him and me. He doesn't make a move without me.

    • Kramer: I am never putting on another piece of clothing unless it's straight out of the dryer.

    • Elaine: These are terrible.
      Jerry: It's like trying to smoke a chicken bone.

    • Kramer: What happened to Newman?
      George: He called in sick!
      Kramer: Oh yeah right, it's raining.

    • George: You don't work in the rain? You're a mailman! "Neither rain nor sleet nor snow"… IT'S THE FIRST ONE!!!
      Newman: I was never that big on creeds.

    • Steinbrenner: Costanza's in the building, and he's not in this office!

    • Steinbrenner: George let me tell you something. When I find something I like I stick with it. From 1973 to 1982 I ate the exact same lunch everyday, turkey chili in a bowl made out of bread. Bread bowl George! You'd eat the chili then you'd eat the bowl. Nothing more satisfying than looking down after lunch and seeing just a table.

  • Notes

    • At the beginning of the episode George presents his idea for having the doors to bathroom stalls go down all the way to the floor, which he first suggested to Susan in "The Postponement".
