The Suicide is a really fantastic episode, that's full of wonderful wacky moments and laughs!
4 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

*plot*. Jerry starts a relationship with a woman whose boyfriend falls into a coma after attempting suicide. Newman appears and threatens to reveal the affair to the coma victim as soon as he recovers. George gives his dream vacation to Kramer after a psychic predicts a catastrophe, while Elaine cannot eat until she gets the test results back from her test.

The Suicide is a really fantastic episode, that's full of wonderful wacky moments and laughs!. The character of Martin really reminded me of a person that I know personally that I despise, and This episode is highly underrated in my opinion, plus it's extremely well written by Tom Leopold and directed by Tom Cherones!. Jerry's stand ups were very funny in this one, and it's really well made as well, plus it was also funny when Elaine freaks out at the psychic for smoking while pregnant with her baby. Julia was also very funny when she had this scene in the hospital talking about Duck, and I really loved the ending to this as well,plus The scene where GIna is asking Jerry about The Three stooges was the highlight of the show for me. The Suicide is a really fantastic episode, that's full of wonderful wacky moments and laughs, and I say Go see it now Seinfeld fans if you Haven't!. ***** out of 5 Favorite quotes.

Jerry: There a Comedy team. Gina: Tell me about them tell me everything!. Jerry: Well They're really funny looking guys, and They'd hit each other a lot. Gina: You will show me the stooges?. Jerry: I will show you the stooges.

Psychic: Get out of here!. George: Is it a plain crash, Heart attack, Lupus is it Lupus?. Psychic: Do you want me to call the super?, he was a Commando. George: If you don't say anything, I'll assume it's a plain crash. Psychic: Get out!. George: Not a plane crash, is it a plane crash?.

(Elaine hasn't eaten in three days). Elaine: But here it was mountains of duck, and not Fatty duck either, but juicy tender breasts of duck, beautifully sliced, you can takes as much as you want.
