"Maybe the dingo ate your baby!"
10 November 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Change, parties, hookers, Long Island, fur: another regular day for the Seinfeld gang in this hilarious episode, which once again points out exactly how stupid, selfish or shallow those four people can be.

It all starts with George arguing with a pharmacist over the change he received when buying an anti-flea cream (he claims he gave her a 20$ bill, but only got change for 10$), a scenario that will repeat itself, with variations, over the years. Then Jerry and Elaine agree to go with him to a party in Long Island so that he can try to score with a female colleague. The evening ends with Jerry and Elaine waiting for Kramer to come and pick them up, and the situation gets worse the next day when Steve Pocatillo (Michael Chiklis), whom jerry casually invited to come over to Manhattan some day, takes the invitation too seriously and insists the two do something together.

As usual, it's the small moments that make the whole thing worthwhile: George's greed, Elaine's statements about fur coats and weird lines delivered with a British accent, and Kramer's overall presence. It all comes to a head in the inspired ending, which is one of the few where most (though not all) of the plot strands climax at the same time. Also worth noticing is Chiklis in his early, funny years (he still had hair!), a guest spot that deserves to be seen as a funny counterpoint to his career-best performance in the raw, edgy cop drama The Shield, which came about eleven years later. Who'd have thought Vic Mackey could be this much fun?
