One of the best one-liners of the season!, 2 December 2008
Author: BIONIC820 from United States

This is a great episode, however, rather than a total critique I just want to point out one of the funniest quotes of the season. Jerry says, "Your genitals are still lined up." If you can't remember the context then go back and watch it again. I also love the roll of the wake-up call guy and how they use his character. In general, this is a very well written and directed episode from the later years of Seinfeld. An interesting note regarding the directors of Seinfeld of which there were a total of 4. Andy Ackerman and Tom Cherones are the two main directors and were used for most of the episodes. David Steinberg directed 2 episodes in 1991 and David Owen Trainer also directed 2 episodes, one in 1994 and the other in 1997. Tom directed 79 episodes during the first half of the shows run. Andy directed this episode and the most episodes that totaled 88 during the last half of the shows 9 season duration. I love how episodes like these are written so that everything comes together by the end and everyone and/or thing that happens is connected. That is definitely one of Larry David's trademarks. Enjoy!
