Season 3 Episode 19

The Limo

Aired Thursday 9:00 PM Feb 26, 1992 on NBC



  • Trivia

    • 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

    • 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.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Jerry: "What are you, Mannix?"

      Mannix: was an late 60's/early 70's detective show starring Mike Conners as Joe Mannix. The show was known for its action scenes usually involving Mannix himself. The show was a victim of the move to limit violence on TV.

    • The woman who George and Jerry pick up on the way to the neo-Nazi conference is named Eva. Eva Braun was the name of Hitler's girlfriend during WWII.
