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

"They can't shoot us in the city"
13 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

One of the great bottle episodes, The Limo is also one of the more creative and weird ones (from the first five seasons). Larry Charles was always trying to make very non- sitcom situations in the episodes he wrote and this is an example of the ones that came up well.

Also, this has to be one of the most cinematic Seinfeld episodes. Aside from the comically strange plot, the way they shoot it really makes a statement about the show and about Cherones (the director). The street set is very stylish, the fragments of the news reporter, the climatic end.

The performances are great all around the table. Jason and Jerry give outstanding performances as well as the neo-Nazis characters. Kramer and Elaine really don't have much to work with and that's maybe why this will never be a classic episode. If they could have centered just on the limo story line (and if they pulled it out right) maybe it would hit that sweet spot.

Nevertheless, it is an incredibly innovating episode and another example of how Season 3 was constantly pushing boundaries.
