  • What a great episode!

    9.8
    This episode was one of the funniest that I have ever seen, George thinks that one of his work mates thinks that he killed Susan, so he tries a radio tape in order to find out what happen and discovers a really amusing and interesting message. Meanwhile, Kramer decides tha the likes Jerry's new girlfriend which he doesn't likes, but as soon as Kramer tells him about it, Jerry decides that he really likes Pam, and that makes things out of control, this is a really good story and one of the best episodes of Seinfeld.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (7)

    • There is a joke where Jerry and George spend a good deal of time standing there while the tape rewinds, and yet later it is revealed that supposedly the recorder was shut of after only recording about five seconds of audio.

    • George's model of the foundation's conference room includes a Red Power Rangers Zeo action figure and a Yellow M&M figure.

    • When George went back into the building to get his suitcase, how did he not notice the damages to it until he got to Jerry's later that night?

    • When Jerry finally chases down Newman in the hall of the building the apartment directly behind them is labeled 4D but on the other side of the hall the apartment is labeled 5E.

    • In the opening scene, George has his hands folded on top of his briefcase. In the next shot, one hand is on top of the other.

    • Kevin says that he has a jet-ski in his garage, but in a later episode we see that he lives in an apartment, which probably doesn't have a garage.

    • Its not much of a goof, but watch Jerry's grip on the M&M when he picks it up out of the shoebox. It moves from the top, to the middle and then back to the top.

  • QUOTES (6)

  • NOTES (2)

    • At the start of the episode George is fantasizing about being in prison and then says wistfully, "One day...". Of course at the end of Season 9 he gets his wish!

    • This episode was dedicated "In Memory of Our Friend Victor Wayne Harris." Victor was the assistant prop master for the series and he died in August following a stroke. Back in the episode "The Pilot (2)", in the scene where George is on the phone calling for his test results, right at the end of the scene you'll see a man with a white t-shirt and a cap approaching the phone, that was Victor Wayne Harris.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Newman whispers to Kramer what he should say to his "Soul Mate". This mirrors Season Four's "The Old Man" in which Kramer feeds lines to Newman with which to insult the used record store owner.

    • Newman feeding Kramer words with which to woo his true love, borrows from the play Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand. Several films were made based on this play, including 1987's Roxanne starring Steve Martin.
