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 intense public interest in the final episode, only the script supervisor was allowed to keep a copy of the episode script. Cast and crew had to sign off for their copy and return it at the end of the day, at which point it was shredded. An enthusiast of spy films, Jerry Seinfeld also looked into invisible ink as a means to preserve the secrecy of the script. See more »

Goofs

Though probably necessary for the purposes of the plot and dialogue, no American prison would house men and women in the same cell for extended periods of time, so in reality Elaine would have been imprisoned in a different location from the boys. See more »

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.
