Elaine Benes: Did you find the place alright?
Mohel: Did I find it alright? I mean could you send me to a more dangerous neighborhood? I'm dreading walking back to the subway, someone shouldn't crack me over the head and steal my bag, 'cause I'll be lying there on the street in this neighborhood and people will spit on me and empty my pockets.

Season 5, Chapter 5, "The Bris" This is one of those episodes that made people say that Seinfeld is "too Jewish".

Much as we Jewish folk love to make fun of ourselves - and I loved those part of the episode - this is one of the weaker episodes in season 5. The bris scene itself is, actually, one of the few major highlights of the episode, with the Dangerfieldian mohel making or an excellent character, but the story itself doesn't make much sense and the ending isn't satisfying at all. It does have some very funny moments like the pigman debate, and it's funny like every episode from this season is, but it's not a classic.
