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

Goofs

When the prosecutors are preparing to try the group for breaking the Good Samaritan Law, the D.A. says that the main issue in the trial will be "character". Under the rules of evidence in criminal law, it is expressly forbidden for a prosecutor to initiate an attack on the defendant's character unless the defendant first attempts to offer evidence of good character.

Quotes

Jerry Seinfeld: [the conversation from the pilot episode of 'Seinfeld'] See now, to me, that button is in the worst possible spot.
George Costanza: Really?
Jerry Seinfeld: Oh yeah. The second button is the key button. It literally makes or breaks the shirt. Look at it, it's too high, it's in no-man's land.
George Costanza: Haven't we had this conversation before?
Jerry Seinfeld: You think?
George Costanza: I think we have.
Jerry Seinfeld: Yeah, maybe we have.

I wish I'd never seen it.
24 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a lame way to end a really funny series. I couldn't watch any Seinfeld rerun for years afterward because this finale left such a bad taste in my mouth.

They hyped the finale so much that nearly everyone in America watched. Maybe that was the problem, but I missed it the first time it aired (one of the few), and I heard from my friends how bad it was, so my expectations were lowered and I still hated it.

My husband has never watched the finale because he heard from several people (including me) that we couldn't stand to watch the good episodes because this was so horrible. He has no tainted memory of the show. Meanwhile, it took seven years before I was able to stay in the same room with him when he watched Seinfeld reruns. That's a long time for a wound to heal.
