  • An off episodes that doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the series.

    7.7
    While the premise is enjoyable—Jerry and George take a limo that’s not meant for them—the episode is very much out of character. There are some fun moments in the beginning and a few later on, but overall, this episode is just too strange and heavy for this series. Kramer has a bit of physical comedy that is too forced, as well. A few highlights include some of Elaine’s and Jerry’s facial expressions, Elaine’s and Kramer’s rare one-on-one interaction, and Jerry’s and George’s usual great interplay. All in all, this episode is quite sub-par. Still, a bad Seinfeld episode is still pretty good (with the exception of the pilot, of course).moreless
  • Nazi's.

    9.0
    This episode was really good, it finally didn't surround, the apartment, or the coffee shop. It is so funny, especially when they shove Elaine & Kramer. That was really funny. I also like the part when Eva brings out the gun, that would of been pretty scary. Elaine is pretty funny in this episode, when they were questioning her. "I really had nothing else to do!" "Please don't shoot." A very funny episode with a very developing plot, from picking up at an airport to a crowd full of angry people ambushing George. It's funny how Kramer thought George was a Nazi, great!moreless
  • Definitely one of the best non-appartment episodes.

    I really loved this episode. The Nazi storyline was impeccable and George as O'Brien was simply hilarious. The way he handled all questions from Eva and the bodyguard was fabulous and when he read from the O'Brien's speech it made me laugh out loud. It even made me think if George acted with such confidence all the time he could've been very successful with the ladies, no doubt. It is definitely one of the best episodes taking place out of the department. This one has it all: great plot, superb acting, memorable quotes, Kramer's three-sixty dunk into bunch of garbage cans and the brilliant ending. Simply great.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (8)

    • Kramer thought Jerry might be a Nazi; however, he knows Jerry is Jewish.

    • This is the first time we hear Norman Brenner (Kramer's stand - in who frequently appears as an extra) speak on the show.

    • George last remarked "We're living in a society!" Back in "The Chinese Restaurant".

    • When Eva takes a gun, Jerry says: "Nice Luger". However, the gun Eva takes is not a Luger, the gun next to the one she takes was.

    • During the sequence at the airport, Jerry has his collar tucked underneath his coat. When we cut back to Jerry after George says "they can't kill us," the collar is suddenly straightened.

    • Audio goof: When Tim tells George about the epilogue he wrote (he of course, believes George is O'Brien), Eva is staring at George and breathing hard. But it sounds like she's breathing out of her mouth, but if you look, you'll see that her mouth is actually closed. Error in the foley department maybe?

    • The newswoman's name is printed at the bottom of the screen as, "Jodi Baskerville" But she concludes her report in saying, "This is Judy Baskerville"

    • In the opening scene, George grabs Jerry as hes walking away. Jerry's scarf is draped over his shoulder, but when we cut, it is fixed. Cut again, back on the shoulder.

  • QUOTES (17)

    • George: Hello, Ma? It's me. Guess where I am? In the back of a limo. No, nobody died. It's a long story, I can't tell you now. Because I can't. I said I can't. If I could, I would. Would you stop it. All right, look, I'm getting off. No, I'm not telling you. How's this - I'm never telling you. I don't care. No. Fine. Never!

    • Jerry: Who's gonna be O'Brien?
      George: I'll be O'Brien.
      Jerry: Who am I?
      George: You're you.
      Jerry: Just me?
      George: Yeah.
      Jerry: Okay.
      George: You don't wanna be you?
      Jerry: Well, if you're gonna be O'Brien, why can't I be somebody?
      George: Like who?
      Jerry: Dylan Murphy.
      George: Okay.
      Jerry: What, now you wanna be Dylan Murphy?
      George: Well, I like Dylan.
      Jerry: You could be Colin.
      George: Okay, Colin O'Brien.
      Jerry: I'm Dylan Murphy.
      George: I'm Colin O'Brien.

    • Jerry: I'll tell you one thing, this chauffeur's gonna be waiting a while. O'Brien's not showing up.
      George: How do you know?
      Jerry: He was in Chicago. Flight was overbooked; they wouldn't let him on the plane. He kept screaming how he had to get to Madison Square Garden.
      George: We should take his limo.
      Jerry: Yeah, right.
      (Jerry begins to walk away, but George suddenly stops him)
      George: Wait a second. Think about it. He's not showing up. Wait till you see the line for cabs, it's, like, 45 minutes long. You said he's in Chicago.
      Jerry: He's definitely in Chicago.
      George: Well, the guy's just standing there.
      (Jerry looks at the chauffeur, who checks his watch)
      Jerry: How would we do it?
      George: We just go up to him and say, "We're O'Brien."
      Jerry: Maybe he knows O'Brien.
      George: No, he doesn't know O'Brien, if he knew O'Brien, he wouldn't have a sign.

    • Eva: What was that you said about the myth of the Holocaust?

    • (George is in front of the news camera as the on-screen graphic says "DONALD O'BRIEN Leader of the Aryan Union").
      George: I am not O'Brien! I am not O'Brien! I repeat, I am not O'Brien! Ask anyone! Jerry! JERRY!

    • Kramer: (points to Jerry) O'Brien, long time no see. (points to George) How's tricks, Murphy?
      Tim: Why did you call him O'Brien and him Murphy?
      Jerry: No, he was talking to me. He's cross-eyed.
      Elaine: It could be very confusing.

    • George: (on the phone) Yeah, hello, police? Uh, yeah, listen, uh, we're in the back of a limo in Queens-
      (Tim re-enters the limo)
      George Uh…Astroturf? You know who's responsible for that, don't you?! The Jews! (hangs up the phone) Ah, the Jews hate grass. They always have, they always will.
      Tim: We'll be ready in a minute.
      George: Would you excuse us for a minute, Tim boy, we're, uh, kind of in the middle of something.
      Tim: With all due respect, Mr. O'Brien, we're just about to leave.
      (George moves and sits down next to Tim)
      George: Tim, who's the head of the Aryan Union, you or me?
      Tim: You are.
      George: And who is responsible for making hatemongering and fascism popular again?
      Tim: You are.
      George: Okay? I think you forgot something.
      Tim: I'm sorry.
      George: Good. Now, get out.
      (Tim leaves)

    • Jerry: Excuse me, driver, why are we getting off this exit?
      Chauffeur: To pick up the other members of your party.
      George: Right. The other members of our party. (closes partition) The other members of our party? What other members of our party? I didn't even know we were in a party. Oh, I'm telling you, the jig is up.
      Jerry: It was a bad jig to begin with. We never should've started this jig.
      George: It was a good jig.
      Jerry: It was a bad jig, a terrible, terrible jig. What are we gonna do now? They're gonna know you're not O'Brien.
      George: There could be more than one O'Brien on a plane who ordered a limo.
      Jerry: First of all, you don't look like any O'Brien, period.
      George: Well, you should've been O'Brien!
      Jerry: I don't even wanna be Murphy anymore! Do I still have to be Murphy?
      George: Yes, you have to be Murphy!
      Jerry: It makes no sense now, me being Murphy!
      George: You're Murphy!
      Jerry: I'm Seinfeld!
      George: YOU'RE MURPHY!

    • George: I just got here. My car broke down on the Belt Parkway.
      Jerry: Oh, I can't believe-- why don't you get rid of that piece of junk?
      George: One mile from the exit, it starts shaking, really violently shaking, like it's having a nervous breakdown, then it completely stopped dead.
      Jerry: So, you have no car?
      George: No.
      Jerry: So, what good are you?

    • George: Look, let's just jump out of the car.
      Jerry: We're going sixty miles an hour!
      George: So, we jump and roll, you won't get hurt.
      Jerry: What are you, Mannix?

    • (George is giddy with excitement as he and Jerry are sitting in the back of O'Brien's limo)
      George: This is incredible! This is one of the greatest things I've ever done in my life! I'm gonna call my mother.
      Jerry: What for?
      George: I dunno, I'm in a limo.

    • Elaine: I know Jerry. He's not a Nazi. No. He's just neat.

    • Kramer: There's always been something very strange about Jerry. Always so clean and organized.

    • Jerry:Nice lookin' Luger.

    • George: (reading the speech he's been given) ". . . and so the Jews, through their Zionist occupied governments, use the black man to import drugs into our underprivileged, white, minority communities."
      Jerry: You're not going to open with that, are you?

    • Jerry: She's a Nazi, George. A Nazi!

    • Jerry: I may not look like a Murphy but I act like a Murphy.
