  • How can letting a friend keep a spare set of keys turn into a mess? Watch Seinfeld and see.

    I love how this episode goes. Whoever knew that there were actually rules with someone holding a spare set of keys? If someone gives you a key you need to give them yours. Only on Seinfeld could this truly become and issue and a hysterical one at that. I absolutely love the way things play out in this episode and the series as a whole. Kramer running away. Jerry forgetting his keys and not able to get a hold of Elaine. George trying to be sensible by not letting Jerry go into Elaine's to look for his keys but of course George is going to cave. When they can't find the keys but find that Elaine wrote a script for Murphy Brown they of course have to make fun and Elaine walks in. As in all Seinfeld episodes it all ties in together when Elaine and Jerry are watching Murphy Brown and Kramer is her newest secretary. This has got to be one of the best comedies of all time and this episode definitely one of the best, all though to be honest most of the episodes were above average.
  • Definitely a Series Classic

    What a mess... with the keys of course. All the lines where the keys are involved are amazing, they´re original and well structured. So it all starts with Kramer abusing of Jerry. He has never told him anything but now he´s had it. So he asks for his keys back and the fun begins.
    So Kramer decides to leave NY and head to LA. In his trip and in his own way, everything happens to him. The best part has to be when he´s in the van with the crazy young man who in my opinion is terrific. But the mess continues back in NY. Elaine wants her keys and when George doesn´t have them with him, another mess emerges.
    An episode you just cant´miss.
  • Breaking the "Key convenant"

    This was a very good season finale with a cliffhanger! What I always have wanted in Seinfeld, a cliffhanger. After Jeryy takes back Kramer's spare keys, he goes nuts and goes to California according to Newman, anyways the best part about this episode, is the confusion with thye keys, which is hilarious, and Elaine writing a script, a very shocking secret, writing a script for Murphy Brown. Then you see Kramer in the show, thats pretty weird, anyways a great season finale with great plots and cliffhangers. Elaine was the most funny in this episode, espcially when they find George & Jerry iin her aparttment.
