  • Very good.

    I thought this was a great episode of Seinfeld. It was not only funny, but it was an episode that had great writing, some great comedy, and some good acting. I also thought that the storylines and plots were also decent. George was funny with his same old cheap routine. Elaine was funny with her issue of the label maer, and Kramer was really hilarious in his game of Risk with Newman. Overall, I have to say that this was a really funny episode. In fact, I'll say that it was probably one of the better episodes of the series. Thank you.moreless
  • A very special episode of Seinfeld and probably one of the best, by far.

    When Jerry gets tickets to the Super Bowl, he can't find anybody to go to the game with because Jerry is in the Drake's wedding party. So, he gives the tickets to Tim Whatley and in return, Tim gives Jerry a Label Maker. But Elaine and Jerry suspect something when Elaine gave Tim the same Label Maker. Also, George tries to get his girlfriend's roommate (who is a guy) to leave the apartment, he does everything he could to get him out. He eventually does, but doesn't get eveything that he wants in return. Also, Kramer and Newman are very serious about a game of Risk that they are playing (funniest part in the episode). When Jerry finds out in the end that he can go to the game, he sees the one person that he can't stand the most sitting right next to him... Newman!. This was a great and classic episode. I can watch this episode over and over again.moreless
  • Kramer and Newman duke it out with a game of Risk.

    I love this episode! It'd probably my fav episode of all!

    For everyone who loves've gotta watch this episode. It's as memorible as the Soup Nazi.

    There are some great quotes in this episode such as "The Ukraine Is Weak!" and "It's Risk, a game of world domination played by two guys who can barely run thier own lives."

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • When the labels fall off Scott's boxes, several glue droplets are seen, but label maker labels have a sticky adhesive backing. There would be no glue droplets left if they fell off.

    • There is no Ambassador hotel in Miami; the only listed hotel under that name in the U.S. is in Los Angeles.

    • The fire-escape Newman uses to get into Jerry's apartment is black metal, but whenever we see Jerry's building from the outside, it is white stone.

    • In this episode Jerry tells George that Kramer didn't want the Superbowl tickets because he's only interested in Canadian Football. However, in the episode "The Masseuse" Kramer jumps at the opportunity to go to the New York Giants game.

  • QUOTES (16)

    • Kramer: (close to victory in Risk) You know what the Ukraine is? It's a sitting duck. A road apple, Newman. The Ukraine is weak. It's feeble. I think it's time to put the hurt on the Ukraine.

    • Kramer: (after catching Newman cheating at Risk) I'm taking the Congo as a penalty!

    • Kramer: (to Jerry) Alright, fine, you sit there and you watch while Newman takes over the world. But he'd be a horrible leader. And you know who's going to suffer? The little people. You and George.

    • George: I would drape myself in velvet if it were socially acceptable.

    • Kramer: Jerry, Newman and I are engaged in an epic struggle for world domination. It's winner take all. People cannot be trusted.
      Newman: Don't look at me.
      Kramer: Oh, I'm looking right at you, Big Daddy.

    • Elaine: He's a re-gifter.

    • Scott: Are you gonna need the bathroom? 'Cause I'm gonna jump in the shower.
      Bonnie: No, just throw my bras out of the way.

    • Kramer: We have to put the board in a neutral place where no one will tamper with it.
      Jerry: So that's here?
      Kramer: Yes, yes. You're like Switzerland.
      Jerry: I don't wanna be Switzerland.

    • George: Hey, do you know, Bonnie, I just had a pretty wild idea.
      Bonnie: What is it?
      George: Well I, uh, I'm not sure how you pronounce it or anything, but I believe it's ménage à trois?
      Bonnie: What?
      (Scott enters)
      Scott: Hi.
      Bonnie: Scott! Remember what we talked about the other day? George is into it.
      Scott: Oh, really?!

    • Jerry: Hey, how would you like to go to the Super Bowl?
      Tim: What, are you kidding?
      Jerry: Here. Two tickets. Have a good time.
      Tim: How can I thank you? I'll tell you what, I'll take you to dinner sometime. You ever been to Mendy's?
      Jerry: (panicky) No, no, no! No dinner!

    • George: (on the Super Bowl tickets) How about Kramer or Elaine, they don't want them?
      Jerry: I asked. Elaine laughed at me, Kramer's only interested in Canadian football.

    • Jerry: I think he re-gifted and then he de-gifted and now he's using an upstairs invite as a springboard to a Superbowl sex romp!

    • Jerry: Newman! He's going with Newman!
      George: How does Tim Whatley even know Newman?
      Jerry: He's his mailman.
      George: Who goes to the Superbowl with their mailman?
      Jerry: Who goes anywhere with Newman?
      George: Well…he's merry.
      Jerry: He is merry - I'll give him that.

    • Newman: Jerry, I'm a little insulted.
      Jerry: You're not a little anything, Newman.

    • George: What's that?
      Jerry: Oh, it's Risk. It's a game of world domination, being played by two guys that can barely run their own lives.

    • George: Well if he can regift, why can't you degift?
