Storyline

Jerry is fed up with Kramer coming into his apartment any time he feels like it and asks him to return his spare set of keys. Kramer begrudgingly complies but then lets it be known that he's leaving for California. As for the others, the one key swap leads to multiple exchanges on pretty well everyone's part. When Jerry forgets his keys, he gets George to let him into Elaine's apartment so her can get his spare set. What they find interests them. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The crossover with "Murphy Brown" led some people to wrongly believe this was the first time shows on competing networks cooperated on a prime-time crossover. Actually, that idea dates as far back as 1960, when Jay North of the CBS series "Dennis the Menace" (1959) took that role to ABC's "The Donna Reed Show" (1958), along with fellow "Dennis" regular Joseph Kearns, also reprising his role as Mr. Wilson.

Out of place
16 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

I think this episode has its good and bad things. The good is the fact that it sets an arc for the following two episodes and we get some exploration into Kramer's character. The bad is that it is disjointed as hell.

I've always had an ever changing relationship with Larry Charles. Sometimes he can deliver classics like "The Subway", "The Airport, "The Outing" and sometimes he delivers out-of-place, dull episodes like "The Bris", "The Baby Shower", "The Trip Pt.1" and this one. He always had a more bizarre point of view, but sometimes it just feels out of place in the context of the other episodes.

There are two story lines here. One is the triangle key problem between Jerry, Elaine and George and the other is Kramer's trip to LA. I think both stories are weak. The "key" story line is as hollow as it gets. The dialogue is 60% fast-complicated speeches about the keys' destinations. I'm not kidding. Kramer's story would fit better in a eight season episode. It is so Ackerman's style that it feels even more out of place here. The contrast between seeing Kramer rollerskating in LA and the gang arguing in Jerry's apartment is so weird. It really feels like too different shows.
