Did You Know?

Goofs

The horse-drawn carriage is referred to a number of times as a "hansom cab," when it clearly is not- hansom cabs have two wheels and the driver sits behind the passengers, while this carriage has four wheels and the driver up front. Even the owner of the carriage, who should know better, calls it this. (In addition, it is not strictly speaking a "cab," as it is not a taxi, but this is common usage.) See more »

Quotes

Frank Costanza: Let me understand, you got the hen, the chicken and the rooster. The rooster goes with the chicken. So, who's having sex with the hen?
George Costanza: Why don't we talk about it another time.
Frank Costanza: But you see my point here? You only hear of a hen, a rooster and a chicken. Something's missing!
Mrs. Ross: Something's missing all right.
Mr. Ross: They're all chickens. The rooster has sex with all of them.
Frank Costanza: That's perverse.

The Rye
10 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A lot of season 7 episodes are funny. This one is no exception. Elaine is seeing a jazz saxophonist & everything is going OK, until Jerry gets word to him that he & Elaine are "hot & heavy." Cosmo Kramer over buys stuff at a warehouse club store. Then while trying to lug a bunch of stuff to his apartment, another tenant of the building offers him a chance to run his handsome cab while he is on vacation. Giddy-up says Cosmo.

George takes his parents to Susan's to meet Susan's parents for dinner. On the way they get a Snitzer Rye bread to take. This causes a ridiculous team of George, Jerry & Kramer after George's dad takes the rye bread home to put another one in Susan's parents house. Imagine combining these three, a gassy horse, fishing line, & Jerry mugging an old lady together? Funny & yet delightful comedy.
