Did You Know?


George thinks the name "Seven" is so unique. He links it to Mickey Mantle's number with the Yankees. Unfortunately for the writers and producers, the name "Seven" had already been used on a TV comedy, around four years earlier on Married with Children (seventh season 1992-93) and the character Seven Bundy. So both George's contention about its uniqueness and the originality of the writers is in question. See more »


When Elaine and Kramer go into Newman's apartment to get his opinion on whom should have the bike, Newman wears a wedding band. You can clearly see it at 14:52. Then, at 14:57, the wedding band isn't there anymore. See more »


Susan Biddle Ross: They're gonna name their baby Seven.
George Costanza: What? They're stealing the name? That's my name, I made it up!
Susan Biddle Ross: I can't believe that they're using it.
George Costanza: Well, now it's not gonna be original! It's going to lose all its cachet!
Susan Biddle Ross: I don't know how much cachet it had to begin with.
George Costanza: Oh, it's got cachet, baby! It's got cachet up the yin-yang!

"So this is the Fortress of Solitude"
29 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

A somewhat uneven episode, it is enjoyable in itself but it lacks the creativity and craft of The Rye or The Caddy.

Three story lines. Elaine and Kramer's bike situation, George and his baby names and Jerry and his one-dress girl. Out of the three, Jerry's is the best. It actually has one of the best ideas of the entire series: a person who always uses the same clothe! That's gold, Jerry! Gold! It is incredibly relatable and the way they handled it only makes it funnier. Unfortunately the other two stories aren't quite on the same level of quality.

George's story kind of comes and goes. Sometimes it's really funny, sometimes it's really annoying, but above all, is borderline ridiculous. Jerry's story is handled in a wacky way, but it is a relatable situation, but George's isn't. I don't know, it doesn't seem like a funny idea. And Elaine and Kramer bike issue is only funny with Newman. Here he reaffirms he is the best supporting character of the series and whenever he is on screen the story gets more interesting.

Overall, a sometimes funny, sometimes hilarious, sometimes dull episode.
