  • I love the complex plot.

    This is a total Seinfeld original. I loved this episode since the beginning. When Elaine wants toilet paper. But Jerry's girlfriend wont give it to her. And throughout the whole episode, Elaine doesn't know that Jane is Jerry's girlfriend. Meanwhile George has a guy crush on Elaine's boyfriend, Tony. While Kramer thinks that Jane is Erica from a sex telephone line. I thought the end was hilarious, when Elaine steals all the toilet paper from the bathroom. And Jane is left with nothing. Hilarious. And it even turned out that Jane was Erica from the sex line. That was hilarious. Surprising ending too!moreless
  • Toliet Paper Politics!

    10
    Rock climbing and Bathroom hijinks are the highlights in this classic episode of "Seinfeld." It gets another 10 in my book and I rerely gave any episode a 10. In the Stall in the bathroom at a movie theatre, Elaine asked another woman for some toliet paper. She refused. The woman in the stall is Jerry's latest girlfriend. She is also doing Telephone sex operator. the voice that Krammer knows. Also Elaine boyfriend went rock climbing with George and Krammer when a accident happen invovles a rope and sandwiches. Everything falls apart in the end as usual. Elain running out of the bathroom with toliet paper. And the fun just keep on coming. "Seinfeld" is a series about manners and the four people who goof up. And the sanwiches were good. Too bad I didn't try one.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (6)

    • This episode gives us the only look at the bathroom in Monk's Coffee Shop.

    • This is the first episode where we see Jerry using his computer. However, while the computer in the background has been an Apple Macintosh, some viewers have said that they spotted a copy of Windows 95 lurking in the background in future episodes.

    • In this episode, Kramer refers to "Monks" by name. Usually they just say, "the coffee shop".

    • After rock climbing with Tony, George and Kramer show up at Jerry's while Elaine is there. She asks how rock climbig went with Tony. Kramer and George are wearing the same climbing clothes and when they tell Elaine about Tony's fall, she goes running out immediatly to check on his condition. The next scene shows Elaine and Tony (face all bandaged up) on the couch and she asks him over and over if the doctors mentioned anything about "radical reconstructive surgery" and so forth. He claims that he's been out of it for 2 days and doesn't remember what the doctors said. If he's been out of it for 2 days, why are George and Kramer wearing the same rock climbing clothes?

      Response: If you watch closely Elaine doesn't have the same clothes as the ones she had when George and Kramer told her about the accident, so it is possible that 2 have passed.

    • There is something weird about the sequencing at the beginning of this episode. Elaine is in Jerry's apartment and she says she has to go downtown and that Jerry is going to give her a ride. Kramer is also there when they leave. As Jerry and Elaine are driving he says to her "you can't keep Tony waiting", implying that Elaine is going to meet him right then. In the next scene Tony and George are sitting in the coffee shop and Kramer comes in, and he is wearing the same shirt that he had on at Jerry's leading me to believe it is not long after. If Elaine was going to meet Tony why is he sitting in the coffee shop with George?

    • Kramer comes out of Jerry's bedroom (he's been using Jerry's phone to call the sex line) without a newspaper in his hand but in the next shot Kramer has a newspaper in his hand.
