After striking up a casual acquaintance with his seat-mate on a flight home, Jerry is stuck caring for his dog after he falls ill and the aircraft makes an emergency landing in Chicago so he can be hospitalized. After three days of keeping the dog in his apartment, Jerry is at his wits end. He doesn't want to go out in case the dogs makes a mess and he has no idea when the owner may show up to collect him. Kramer meanwhile decides that he wants to break up with his latest girlfriend. Written by garykmcd

In-Jokes Run Leashless
17 December 2006 | by (terra incognito) – See all my reviews

Single Favorite Line: (George, pumped up for movie night) "Let's go people, let's GO! - It's 'Prognosis Negative' time, whhawaggahaha!!"

Notable Guest Stars: Joseph Maher (as Gavin, the drunken, Palsied dog lover)

Memorable Exchange: (George & Elaine, at the coffee shop with nothing to talk about) George: "I like herbal tea...chamomile good...Lemon Lift..Almond Pleasure....." (.....Elaine squeezes the last drips from a tea bag to her cup....) - E: "Jerry like Morning Thunder." - G: "Jerry drinks Morning Thunder?" - E: (pleased with her revelation) "Yeah" - G: "-Morning Thunder has caffeine in it, Jerry doesn't drink caffeine." - E: "Jerry doesn't know Morning Thunder has caffeine in it !", etc.

Key Topics: *Bells Palsy *Bad Dogs *Bad Movies *Delicate Balances in Friendship *Bad Predictions

Part I Didn't Like: Although the voice of the dog barking was played by an actor, it sounded like a Casio keyboard effect, and barked too monotonously. Extra Nice Touch: The posters along the movie ques, are very clever parodies of modern movie types / subjects ( 'Prancer', 'The First Power', 'Sex Relations, Family Relations', and 'Eve, of Destruction' --look fast!)

6 of 10 - good one
