Storyline

George's new girlfriend often fills in her stories with the expression yada-yada leaving out much of the detail. Jerry tells him she's being concise but not knowing what's going starts to drive George crazy. Jerry meanwhile is convinced that his dentist, Tim Whatley, has converted to Judaism to he can tell Jewish jokes. When he continues to tell Catholic jokes, he even complains to Whatley's former priest. It all leads Kramer to accuse him of being an anti-Dentite. Elaine is asked by friends to be a character reference with a adoption agency but she doesn't exactly help them. Kramer and Mickey can't quite agree on which of two women they've met they'd like to date. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The word "yada" in ancient Hebrew was translated "know" in the King James bible and was a euphemism for intercourse. In this episode, George is trying to find out if "yada yada" by his girlfriend means she had intercourse with her old boyfriend. Whether this play on an ancient Hebrew word was intentional or not by the writers is unknown. See more »

Wacky episode spawns famous Seinfeld catch phrase
29 January 2009 | by (Greensboro, NC) – See all my reviews

This is a funny episode from season 8. Even if you never watched this episode, you have no doubt been familiar with the phrase that everyone started using after it - "yada yada yada".

George is dating a girl that doesn't complete stories but instead fills in the blanks by saying "yada yada yada". Jerry says its great because she's succinct - like USA TODAY. But George soon learns she is leaving out important info.

Jerry's dentist converts to Judaism and proceeds to telling frequent Jewish jokes - so Jerry thinks he converted just so he can tell the jokes. He confides to a priest that it doesn't bother him as Jew, but as a COMIC. HILARIOUS! Then Jerry tells a dentist joke and word gets around that he's "anti-dentite". At times the episode gets a little wacky but there are some funny moments. A must see episode of you are a fan of Seinfeld!
