She then videotapes herself dancing over the bootleg of "Cry, Cry, Again". Elaine apologizes over the phone to George calling him a "good seed".

Did You Know?


According to Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the key to the comedy in her dancing was to look as ridiculous as possible while keeping her face full of confidence and thorough enjoyment. It was important to her to look like a fool but also be funny. In this sense, in spite of the fact that she was deliberately dancing poorly, she was going for a feeling of humiliation, as she wanted people to laugh at her more than with her. See more »

The wrong actress is listed as Anna
9 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews If you go into the site above you will see it is Rebecca McFarland and not Cindy Ambuehl They both look similar And people who have commented also say it is Ms. McFarland

I recently watched this episode and wanted to know who the actress was playing Anna.

When I viewed Ms Ambuehl I was like "That's not her?

Oh well it was a good episode and worth seeing over and over as are most the Seinfeld episodes.

I recently saw Ms McFarland in another show and said "Hey that is the girl from Seinfeld where George borrows his fathers GTO with the back support
