The scene where Kramer gets arrested in his apartment, among the people waiting outside you can see Larry David and Larry Charles on the right. See more »


When George and Jerry are in the back of the police car, George makes a crack about the window and tries to get Jerry to roll it down, tricking him because there are no locks or window handles in police cars - as Jerry finds out when he can't roll down the window. However, when the police go to arrest Kramer, they go in the building and Jerry reaches out the open window to open the door (which also clearly has a lock.) And of course, the criminal the cops picked up earlier escapes and is later to revealed to be a serial killer as well. See more »

Kramer the serial killer...
27 February 2009 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

The Trip: Part 2 is an excellent continuation of the Season Four premiere of Seinfeld, shifting its focus from the media to a mercilessly entertaining spoof of police procedures (an element that resurfaces in later episodes as well).

What happens is that while Jerry was on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (and George couldn't keep his mouth shut as usual), Kramer, now a struggling actor, was arrested by the LAPD for a series of grisly murders (his name popped up during the investigation and the detectives came to the wrong conclusion). After witnessing the arrest on TV, Jerry and George do their best (amd Kramer his worst) to convince the police that it's all a big mistake, while the real killer is still at large, waiting for his next victim. Oh, and again, no Elaine.

People getting wrongfully arrested, or just in trouble with the police, is a necessary plot line in most comedy shows nowadays. No one, however, has done it better than the Seinfeld writers, who knew exactly what buttons to push and for how long. Kramer's famous interrogation (one of several reasons why he deserved his second consecutive Emmy win in 1993) is a pitch-perfect parody of your average thriller, not to mention an ironic counterpoint to Season Two episode The Statue, where Jerry's adorably inventive neighbor posed as a cop.

Plus, in regards to the show's immortal "no hugs, no learning" rule, it doesn't get much more suitable than at the end of the episode, where we see the guys' reactions to Kramer's release. Boy, those people just can't seem to care about anyone but themselves - and that's exactly why Seinfeld is the funniest show ever made.
