Goofs

Before he buys the candy bar, George tells Jerry that he only needs one more nickel. Once he has the coin from Jerry, he inserts 3 coins into the machine. Later, the camera zooms in, revealing the price of the candy bar to be 50 cents. Three coins minus Jerry's nickel is 45 cents, and there are no two coins that add up to 45 cents. See more »

Another ninth season absurdist gem
15 October 2009 | by (Atlanta) – See all my reviews

Like all the episodes from the final season of Seinfeld, "The Dealership" features several very thin premises, semi-believable characters, and absolutely hilarious moments. The primary plot about Jerry buying a car and Elaine's relationship with Puddy are fairly bland, relying mostly on fairly typical jokes about car dealers and the Elaine/Puddy dynamic.

But the other two plots are dazzling. George becomes obsessed with proving that a mechanic stole his candy bar and his increasingly frantic encounters with the disinterested staff, culminating in the "candy lineup" is not necessarily believable, but is quite funny. They've made vending machines more efficient, but it's still very much a tale most of us can relate to.

Kramer's story is by far the best, thanks in large part to the brilliant dialog. This exchange might be one of my favorites of the entire series. RICK: Oh, Mr. Kramer, I gotta thank you. I - I learned a lot. Things are gonna be different for me now. KRAMER: Well, that's a weird thing to say.

10/10.
