Did You Know?


Despite knowing where he worked, how he got the bit part on the show and that he quit his job to work as an actor, the Pilot's name is not mentioned in the credits, 'notes about nothing' or by the writer's commentary on the DVD. See more »


When Jerry goes to Ithaca for an afternoon performance the outside of the venue says "Ithica Civic Auditorium". It should be "Ithaca", as shown later on the arrivals screen in the lounge. See more »

"I'm freaking out!"
18 October 2011 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Season 6, Episode 21, "The Diplomat's Club"

"The Diplomat's Club" is an excellent episode, one of my favorites in season 6 which, unlike most of the latter part of the season, relies on excellent writing and acting rather that gags and visual humor. Jerry and Elaine both deliver some of their best scenes; George and Kramer are terrific as well, and surprisingly much more subtle in their performance than anywhere else in the latter seasons.

The episode also features excellent work from a couple of recurring supporting actors. Ian Abercrombie makes his final appearance, and one of his best, as Mr. Pitt; Tom Wright as Mr. Morgan is a great straight-man for George. And That 70's Show's Debra Jo Rupp makes her first appearance as Jerry's overprotective agent. An excellent and underrated episode all around, maybe the last of the original classics.
