  • Pretty good...

    8.2
    The setback about this episode is that it tends to be one that everybody forgets about. Some people who do remember dislike it, which is really too bad since it is not a bad episode at all!



    The basic outline of the story is as follows: Kramer gives Jerry a pez dispenser which causes Elaine to laugh during George's girlfriend's recital; Kramer joins the "polar bears" swim team and has an idea to make a colone (sp?) that smells like the beach; Jerry holds an intervention for somebody he hasn't seen for over 2 years; and the PEZ DESPESNDER fits into all of that.



    As all Seinfeld episodes, I highly recommend viewing this one if you already have not. This is one of the episodes that can still frequently be seen on the FOX network.moreless
  • a hilarious episode

    9.0
    I first saw this episode because my friend referred to it after we had a similar situation at the gym where he put my water bottle on the weights as i was using them and i started laughing.



    The fact that we can all relate to these stupid but funny situations is exactly what makes this show so funny. The line from george: "I've got so much hand I'm coming out of my glove" is hilarious as is the whole conversation.



    The ending was also very humourous:



    What's a three letter word for candy?

    I could never do those things



    This episode represents what this show is all about.



    "Nothing"moreless
  • Intervention.

    8.0
    This episode was pretty weird, how can a Pez dispenser make Elaine laugh like crazy, that was pretty messed up, I felt sorry for the girlfriend, but at the end, I felt sorry for George when she broke up with him. And the Pez dispenser turned out to be something that saved someone's life at an intervention,and the friend hits on Elaine when she is obviously is not interesting, also I like the girl who plays the girlfriend, it reminds me of Susan, (long-term girlfriend of George in future episodes) Anyways an okay episode , seems a bit unrealistic but whatever.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • George mentions that Noel was playing the "Waldstein" sonata which is Beethoven's Piano Sonata #21, Op. 53. Later at the recital the piece Noel is playing is another Beethoven Piano Sonata, #8 "Pathetique" Op. 13.

    • Fred Sanders (Richie) also worked with Jason Alexander (George) in the episode "Pilot" of Listen Up.

    • While talking to George in his apartment, Jerry has a Diet Pepsi. The Pepsi can turns and appears in and out of Jerry's hand throughout the entire scene. Also, when Jerry answers the buzzer at the intervention, his hands are empty. However, when George comes up, a Diet Pepsi appears in Jerry's hand!

    • One of the people at the intervention complains to Jerry about his not having ice cubes. This is odd, considering in every episode (excluding the ones that do not feature Jerry's apartment) clearly shows that Jerry's refrigerator-freezer has an ice and water dispenser.

    • The character head on the Pez dispenser is Tweety.

  • QUOTES (11)

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • As George tells Jerry about the list of conversation topics he had written down before he called Noel, he mentions that of one his topics was why Postum isn't a more popular drink.

      Postum was a caffeine-free, powdered beverage that was a common coffee substitute. It was sold by Kraft Foods and marketed by Postum Cereal Company with two flavors: original and coffee. Postum was popular during World War II when coffee was rationed, but the drink was discontinued in 2007.
