    Great classic episode of Seinfeld here. All the story lines managed to tie in quite nicely what with the glasses, air conditioner, the dog, and of course George thinking he saw Jerry's girlfriend cheating on him. We got a lot of takeaway scenes here such as George biting in to an onion or the air conditioner falling out of the window.



    We got a lot of great lines from Julia-Louis Dreyfus tonight. Like after she got bit by the dog: "No, I'll just go, just follow the trail of blood!" Then of course we got the great glasses tie in and Jeffrey looking like a horse which ensued George thinking that Amy was kissing when he saw an old lady kissing a horse without his glasses.



    Sure, it sounds a bit far-fetched, but Seinfeld really made it work tonight. This is really what Seinfeld is all about. Great episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • This is the second mention of Kramer's friend Bob Saccamano. The first was in season three's "The Heart Attack".

    • When Elaine is exhibiting symptoms of rabies, Kramer says that it's the same thing that happened to his friend Bob Sacamano, and adds that rabies is fatal. However, Bob Sacamano is mentioned in several future episodes, so he mustn't have died of rabies.

    • Elaine calls Kramer a "hipster doofus". This is the same name Kramer says he was called by the handicapped woman in Season 4's The Handicap Spot." Oddly, in that episode, Elaine wasn't present when Kramer shared the story with Jerry and George.

    • One of the very few early episodes where the bike hanging in hallway is a blue/silver cannondale, instead of the notorious green klein. Also there is a picture behind this bike, and there is usually a bookshelf behind the klein.

  • QUOTES (19)

  • NOTES (8)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Jerry: "It's Howdy Doody time".
      (...)
      Kramer: "Right this way, Mr. Doody".

      Jerry's line was used in the children's show Howdy Doody.

      Kramer's line was made popular by co-creator Larry David on the show Fridays.

    • George spotting a dime on the far side of Jerry's apartment and then picking it up to prove he can see without glasses, alludes to a scene in "The Great Escape" (1963): Colin Blythe, "The Forger" (Donald Pleasence), is nearly blind, so stages a deception wherein he spots and then picks up a pin to prove he can see well enough to participate in the escape.
