Trivia

During the scene where Frank (Jerry Stiller) crawls into bed with George, Jason Alexander (George) couldn't stop breaking into laughter. It took dozens of takes to get the shot. See more »

Goofs

While Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld) waits for the elevator, he talks to the doorman (Larry Miller) who is standing behind holding the newspaper in both hands. He lowers the paper & changes expressions during the conversation, but when Jerry turns back to the elevator, we see the doorman back in his original pose. An editing problem. See more »

The Mansserie
27 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

In "The Doorman", Jerry unintentionally gets into a feud with Mr. Pitt's doorman, culminating with the lobby's couch being stolen and Jerry taking the blame. George's parents separate and Frank comes to stay with him. George tries to figure out how to get rid of him. Kramer & Frank come up with an idea to sell male bras and George begins to worry that male breasts might be hereditary.

Another classic episode, the mansserie is a Seinfeld reference that has transcended the show's airtime. I always love it when Kramer tries to get some type of entrepreneurial business going. I am not as big of fan of the doorman subplot but I have to admit that Larry Miller is perfect for the role.
