  • A Seinfeld classic.

    This is definitely one of my favorite episodes from Seinfeld. The central conflict is around who deserves a parking space: George or Mike. This is a great example of how the Seinfeld writers were able to take a real-world sceanario and blow it up to epic proportions. The laughter becomes side-splitting as bystanders join in to argue who deserves the spot.
    This episode is also highlighted by an incredible story that Elaine makes up on the spot to distract Jerry from thinking about the damage that George did to his car. All in all, one of the best Seinfeld episodes.
  • For those who don't live in New York City, you don't know what it's like to get a parking space like that. It's a once in a lifetime chance. You'd never give it up once it was in your grasp.

    George borrows Jerry's car and goes up with Elaine to a farmer's market in Westchester County. When he gets back to the city, he has a golden opportunity at a parking space right in front of Jerry's apartament building. He has a conflict with a man who claims he had it first, as he pulled in from the front of his car. The dispute lasts the entire episode, as the two cars are sticking out in the middle of the street. The dispute lasts till the sun goes down. Meanwhile, Kramer knows the man trying to technically steal George's space.
  • Well writen.

    While on the way back from a fly market George his a pot hole and knocks something lose in Jerry’s car which George browed and it starts making a funny noise when the finally get to Jerry’s building George and a friend of Kramer’s named Mike get in to a argument over a parking space in front of Jerry and Kramer’s apartment building mean while a little before they get their Kramer tells Jerry a secret that Mike said Jerry was a phony over all the episode was very funny and I really liked it the different story mix well in this episode and it is well written.

    Incredibly well written episode of Seinfeld here. We got a lot of great one liners from the entire cast. One of them coming from Elaine as she frantically told a lie of a story while breaking the news to Jerry that she and George had done something to his car.

    The whole episode being revolved around that single parking space was genius. I think only a show like Seinfeld can pull this off. Loved the "phony" scene, as well as Jerry frightening the little boy or when Kramer thought the lady was pregnant. It's those takeaway scenes that made the episode what it was.

    The argument was golden and I loved the fact that the two cops ended up arguing over that certain dilemma. Jerry misses the game in the end, perfect tie in. Overall, solid memorable installment from Seinfeld.
