Storyline

Five years after he and George made their original pitch, Jerry gets a call from NBC saying they want to go ahead with the original proposal. As a perk, they offer him the company jet to take him anywhere he likes and he, Elaine, George and Kramer are soon winging their way to Paris. They don't get very far when the plane has to make an emergency landing - thanks to Kramer's water-logged ear - and soon find themselves with a few hours to kill in a small town. When they see a fat man being car-jacked, they make fun of it but are soon arrested under a new Good Samaritan law for failing to help him. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Because of the immense amount of scrutiny around the plot of the final episode, security during production was high. Audience members who attended the taping (most of whom were family and friends of those involved with the show) had to sign affidavits swearing not to reveal the events of the episode. See more »

Goofs

The Massachusetts "Good Samaritan Law" does not mandate that aid be provided, but rather prohibits the recipient from suing the provider for any injury suffered. See more »

Quotes

Judge Arthur Vandelay: I can think of nothing more fitting than for the four of you to spend a year removed from society so that you can contemplate the manner in which you have conducted yourselves. I know I will. This court is adjourned.

The show is about nothing.
31 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is not Friends. This is not that love-splashing emotion-playing kinds of craps that you usually expect, otherwise it'd be something but THE SHOW IS ABOUT NOTHING. This was the best finale that I have ever seen.

I ended the finale moments ago. Before I watched it, I said to myself: "Oh God, I am about to get so emotional at the end and I am gonna miss those lovely characters so much". At the end of it, not only I didn't feel sad, but actually I was laughing so hard that all of my neighbors, even those three blocks away, noticed. I was laughing out loud at how they have been tantalizing me for several years. The whole show was it self a joke; it did not have any stupid testosterone-rising story. This way I will not miss Seinfeld . . . GREAT!!!
