  • You doubled dipped the chip!

    Great line! Eating potato chips will never be the same.
  • Season 4 continues.

    Season 4 may arguably be the best season ever of Seinfeld and this was yet another great installment during that year. This episode was responsible for yet another quote that became synonymous with pop culture: "They're real and they're spectacular" and you just have to wonder how one show changed the world so much.

    This episode had so many great gags from being able to spot a lesbian too, to investigative journalism to Sal Bass. You just do not get much funnier than this show and anybody who thinks Seinfeld is not the best comedy ever is only lying to themselves.moreless
  • This episode is just amazing, with two great plots, and a small sub-plot. This is easily one of the best episodes in season four.

    "The Implant" is a wonderful Seinfeld episode. This is an episode that gave Seinfeld 2 famous phrases, "There real and there spectacular". And "You double-diped a chip!". This starts in a health club where Elaine tells Jerry that his girlfriend's breasts' have implants in them, hence the title. Upon hearing this Jerry can't wait to find out. He then sends Elaine to spy on her and see how they look. Elaine tells Jerry and then he breaks up with her.Elaine meets Jerry's girlfriend again in a sauna, trips and falls into her breasts', she then tells Jerry her breasts' are real so they get back together. Watch the episode to see the rest. On George's and Kramer's side, George's girlfriend has not had sex with him and they have been out nine times! After a relative of George's girlfriend has a death in the family George goes to the funerial beacuse it would count as "like 10 dates". George and Kramer say they have a death in the family to get a big discount on plane tickets to Detroit, where the funerial takes place. He then must get the death certificat so he gets the discount. Just as he is about to get he "double-dips" a chip and is thrown out. See the episode for the rest.moreless
  • "There real, and they're spectacular!"

    This episode is a definite classic. Jerry asks Elaine to see if Sidra's chest is real. Meanwhile George travels to see if he can go on second base with his girlfriend, but it only makes things worse. When Timmy ruins it by starting a commotion cause George double dips. I like how George is so cheap, he would lie to fake a death of a loved one just so he can get half off on a plane ticket. I like how in the end, Sidra proves that they are definitely real. Must suck for Jerry. I do not get the Salman storyline.moreless
  • Jerry breaks up with Sidra (Teri Hatcher) because Elaine tells him that her breasts are fake, but later finds out that they are real, and taunts Jerry. They get back together, but Sidra leaves Jerry when she finds out that he dated Elaine. George goes tomoreless

    This is a great example of the Seinfled obsession with Superman. First of all, it guest-stars Teri Hatcher, who played Lois Lane in \"Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman\". In the beginning, Jerry tells Elaine to \"do some investigative journalism\" which of course is the job of Lois Lane. Another reference to Superman, of course, Elaine asking, in the sauna \"Is he obsessed with Superman?\" And, as usual by this time in the life of seinfeld, there is the Superman fridge magnet and also the Superman action figure on the shelf. Great episode overall, and great tribute to Superman.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Kramer says that he knows what fake breasts feel like, and explains that it's because he lived in LA for three months. In response, Elaine says, "I thought you hated LA," as if Kramer said that he missed LA. However, he only said that he lived there - certainly not a contradiction to Elaine's assumption that he didn't like it there.

    • When the guys are in the sauna, Kramer is wearing a metal chain around his neck (ouch!!!) and George metal frame glasses. I'm not sure about the glasses, but I'm pretty sure I've had to remove jewelry while in a sauna----wow, that metal gets hot and burns the skin!!!!! Yes????

    • As Jerry and Sidra are about to get intimate, Kramer knocks on the door and interupts them. In one shot, they're holding hands. In the next shot, they have their hands in their laps.

    • At about 17 minutes into the episode, Jerry has his arms folded across his chest. Then the shot changes and Kramer walks in after Jerry says, "I gotta draw the line somewhere." In this shot, Jerry has one hand on his hip and the other at his side.

    • At the wake George tucks into the food like crazy and puts about 6 or 7 pieces on his plate, the camera angle changes and he only has 1 piece on his plate, the other disappeared.

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Jerry: I usually last about ten minutes on the stairmaster. Unless, of course, there's someone stretching in front of me in a leotard, then I can go an hour. That's why they call it the stairmaster. You get up there and you stare.

    • Kramer: Come on, what's wrong with my boys?
      Jerry: Your boys should stay in their neighborhood.

    • (George double-dips a chip, and Timmy rushes over to him after seeing what he did)
      Timmy: What are you doing?
      George: What?
      Timmy: Did…did you just double-dip that chip?
      George: Excuse me?
      Timmy: You double-dipped the chip!
      George: Double-dipped? What are you talking about?
      Timmy: You dipped the chip, you took a bite, and you dipped again.
      George: So?
      Timmy: That's like putting your whole mouth right in the dip! From now on, when you take a chip, just take one dip and end it!

    • Elaine: I never knew you were so into breasts. I thought you were a leg man.
      Jerry: A leg man? Why would I be a leg man? I don't need legs. I have legs.

    • (Trying to convince Jerry the man at the health club is Salman Rushdie.)
      Kramer: Jerry, are you blind?! He's a writer. He said his name was Sal Bass. Bass, Jerry! Instead of salmon he went with bass. He just substituted one fish for another!

    • Elaine: (to Jerry) Just when I think you're the shallowest man I've ever met, you somehow manage to drain a little more out of the pool.

    • Sidra: And by the way. They're real, and they're spectacular!

    • Elaine: Come on. Don't you think they seem a bit too perfect?
      Jerry: Yes they do!

    • Elaine: You know, uh... They're fake.

    • Kramer: (while in the sauna) Whew. It's like a sauna in here.
