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

Unlike most of the original uncut broadcast versions of Seinfeld, which were roughly 23-24 minutes in length, this was well over 26 minutes. This being said, far more had to be cut than usual, including the opening dialog between Jerry and George about what to bring on a desert island, additional footage with Kramer and Mickey trying to impress their dates during dinner, and other minor extensions.

Goofs

After Elaine has substantially finished peeling an orange the next cut shows most of the peel still on. See more »

Quotes

Elaine Benes: Anyway, guess what. Beth Lipner called me.
Jerry: Ooohh, Beth Lipner. I'm still waiting out that marriage.
Elaine Benes: What are you talking about? That marriage ended six months ago. She's already remarried.
Jerry: I gotta get on that internet, I'm late on everything!

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!
