Kramer is walking down a street and sees a man littering. He calls the guy a "pig" but doing so offends a cop who is standing a few feet away. Of course, the cop isn't paying attention and the scofflaw gets away. Kramer decides that he needs a new look and goes with an eye patch. George runs into Gary Fogel, a man who was having cancer and decided not to tell him. But he did tell Jerry, who reveals that he made himself nearly sick being nice to the guy. The next day, George meets with Gary, who drops a bombshell that he never actually had cancer and that the operation revealed that it was benign. Kramer decides to go apologize to the cop on his way to get a book signed by Elaine's ex-boyfriend Jake Jarmel (see episode "The Sniffing Accountant"). The cop reveals a story about a brown Dodge sedan that has become his "white whale" - the scofflaw has racked up more parking tickets than anyone in New York and that he almost nailed him until Kramer made his remark. Kramer goes to the book ... Written by halo1k

"Newman - the White Whale!"
4 October 2011 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Season 6, Episode 13, "The Scofflaw" Seinfeld was probably overdue for a weak episode after getting "The Race", "The Switch" and "The Label Maker" in a row; "The Scofflaw" is the weakest episode in season 6, and one of the weakest in the entire series. Which is not to say it doesn't have its moments, of course.

Kramer has some good moments, especially when interacting with Newman, but nothing that happens to him has any really satisfying conclusion, especially the eye-patch which is kinda cool looking but has no real effect on anything else that happens. Elaine's story makes no sense; the one regarding Jerry, George and Gary Fogel is funnier, but Jon Lovitz is incredibly annoying and unlikable. A filler episode, all around.
