Storyline

George meets Jerry at the airport as scheduled but his car broke down on the way there and now don't have a way to get back. When Jerry notices a limo driver waiting for someone named O'Brien, he knows the passenger will never show up since he was supposed to be on Jerry's flight but refused boarding. George has a solution to their problem - just tell the driver he's O'Brien and they'll get a free ride into Manhattan. When the driver tells them he's taking them to Madison Square Garden, they assume they're going to see a Knicks-Bulls game. They're joined by an interesting pair of bodyguards and soon realize that it's not a basketball game they're going to. Written by garykmcd

"Kind of a cute Nazi, though"
3 December 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Nazis are, by definition, not funny. The sole exceptions that come to mind are Mel Brooks' depiction of Hitler in The Producers, Chaplin's performance in The Great Dictator and Peter Sellers playing Dr. Strangelove. Now, thanks to The Limo, we can add a Seinfeld episode to the bunch.

This quite underrated story starts when Jerry and George land at JFK and seize an opportunity to get a free limo ride to Madison Square Garden. On the way, they stop to pick up Kramer and Elaine, since they're convinced the people in the car are taking them to a Knicks/Bulls basketball game. In reality, the limo is headed to a Neo-Nazi meeting, and with protesters filling the street the situation could get a little dangerous.

Given the aforementioned previous comedic depictions of Nazi atrocities, what's left to do that hasn't been done before? Easy: play on the characters' natural ignorance, selfishness and stupidity (never a problem with these guys). As usual, Jason Alexander steals the show the most, whether he's faking Anti-Semitism (hey, he's done a lot worse) or flirting with a female Neo-Nazi (what are you gonna do about it? The lady was cute...). And then there's Kramer diving into a load of trash, and Jerry and Elaine trying to rationalize the whole thing. Long story short: twenty irresistible minutes of sitcom madness.
