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

Did You Know?


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 »

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.

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!!!
