Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Goof: Early in the episode, George comes out of the bathroom and he and Jerry are debating whether or not they like the button fly on jeans. As Jerry tells George that a zipper fly is like "a mink trap down there," he is standing by the counter in the kitchen. When the camera angle changes, George is still buttoning his fly, but Jerry has somehow instantaneously picked up his jacket and is already walking back toward the kitchen.

    • This episode clearly shows that Jerry kept the letter his girlfriend sent him but in "The Pledge Drive", Jerry's relationship was ruined when he threw out her card.

    • In the painting Kramer is holding his hands, but when Nina is painting him Kramer has his hands on his knees.

    • When Jerry unlocks the door it opens by itself.

    • When Kramer yells "Hey Charlie, you better catch them here this ain't Philadelphia!" the image of the 3rd basemen making the play is not Charlie Hayes the former Phillies 3rd basemen who was later traded to the Yankees

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Jerry: I like the button fly. That is one place on my wardrobe I do not need sharp interlocking metal teeth. It's a mink trap down there.

    • (Jerry and Nina are watching TV)
      Jerry: Don't go in there, you're gonna get shot.
      (Gunshot on TV)
      Jerry: I told you.

    • Jerry: (picks up Nina's painting George bought) And by the way, can you get this thing outta my house?
      George: Tell you what; I'll make a deal with you. I'll sell it to you right now for ten bucks.

    • Kramer: You're sure you don't want me to take my clothes off? 'Cause I'll do it.
      Nina: No, that's the last thing in the world I want you to do.
      Kramer: Well why don't you take your clothes off?

    • Jerry: How are you feeling?
      Kramer: Oh yeah, I'm fine. I'm fine. (to Elaine) How're you, Carroll?
      *later*
      George: Hey Kramer.
      Kramer: Hi Mike.

    • Jerry: I have to go meet Nina. You want to come to her loft, check out her paintings?
      George: I don't get art.
      Jerry: There's nothing to get.
      George: No, it always has to be explained to me, and then I have to have someone explain the explanation.
      Jerry: She does a lot of abstract stuff. In fact she's painting Kramer right now.

    • Mrs. Armstrong: (on The Kramer) I sense great vulnerability. A land child crying out for love; an innocent orphan in the post-modern world.
      Mr. Armstrong: I see a parasite. A sexually-depraved miscreant, who is seeking to gratify only his most basic and immediate urges.

    • Kramer: I hopped a steam boat to Sweden.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • After Kramer's head accident, he calls George "Mike." This is in reference to Mike Costanza, the person who for the most part was the actual person George was based on.
