On their way back into the city Elaine, George, Kramer and Jerry find themselves stuck in traffic owing to the Puerto Rican day parade. An impatient Elaine abandons them and tries to get a cab but it's no faster. George gives up as well, hopping out of Jerry's car and going to a movie but has an encounter with someone who has a laser pointer. Kramer and Jerry have a running encounter with someone in a maroon Golf. When Kramer needs to find a restroom, a visit to an apartment that's for sale seems to do the trick. Written by garykmcd

Poorest cast and written episode
22 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There's not much to say except that this is the worst-cast, poorest- written episode of "Seinfeld." All the logic-defying, mind-numbing moments of this episode really detract from the rest of this amazing season of "Seinfeld" (with the exception of "The Dealership"). The ludicrous story lines, the extraordinarily clunky actors playing the extras (i.e., the people under the bleachers with Elaine or the women in the theater) in conjunction with a terrible script really made for a sad penultimate episode of one the best shows on TV. My concerns don't lie within the offenses perceived by the episode, but how the once- skilled writing team of "Seinfeld" went from making hilarious quips and commentaries about everyday issues of life to this.
