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

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.

A disappointing end.
16 December 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

It had the same great humor, it revisits the characters which made the show great and it adds a final quirky situation to the already impressive catalogue of everyday-life spoofs, but in my opinion, it fails as a finale, I was left wanting more.

I think it's a real shame that the epic series had to be ended on this extremely mediocre note. It added a disappointing sense of finality, the kind of thing that can ruin good memories from a fun show.

Seinfeld was interviewed saying that the idea of filming one more episode was toyed with, if only this was the case!

----------- 6/10
