In this episode, the predecessor to Seinfeld (1989), Jerry is expecting a woman that he met in Michigan to come and visit him in New York. Throughout the first part of the show Jerry and George are discussing the situation. Later we meet "Kessler" who comes in to Jerry's apartment to borrow some meat and uncharacteristically knocks on the door before entering.

In this pilot Michael Richards
plays the wacky neighbor named Kessler instead of Kramer. The original idea was call him Kramer as he was based on a real person who lived next door to Larry David

But for legal reasons it had to be changed, as there was the possibility that the real life person might sue. Afterwards, they did secure an agreement with the real life Kramer to use his name and likeness. (The real life Kenny Kramer
looks a lot like Michael Richards does). See more

Women - they're so *subtle*, their little - everything they do is *subtle*. Men are not subtle, we are obvious. Women know what men want, men know what men want, what do we want? We want women! That's it! It's the only thing we know for sure, it really is. We want women. How do we get them? Oh, we don't know about that, we don't know. The next ...
