While sitting in the coffee shop, Jerry and George resolve to grow up and take life more seriously. Jerry decides to call the woman he recently broke up with - because she shushed him. For his part, George has been thinking a lot about his former girlfriend Susan. After imagining the ideal life they could have together, he goes to her apartment and proposes. She accepts and George almost immediately begins to have second thoughts, especially after Jerry breaks up with his girlfriend a second time. Elaine meanwhile is having trouble with a neighbor's barking dog and enlists the help of two professionals to get rid of the problem: Kramer and Newman. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


Newman (Wayne Knight) is often referenced in relation to infamous New York serial killer David Berkowitz, the 'Son of Sam'. He claims to have taken over his postal route and inherited his mailbag which he offers as collateral for Kramer's (Michael Richards) gambling debts. Berkowitz claimed that his actions were forced upon him by his neighbours dog and Newman states the same when he helps Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) kidnap her neighbour's dog. When the police turn up to arrest him Newman asks 'What took you so long?' which is exactly what Berkowitz said when he was arrested. See more »


Susan tells George that she taped Mad About You. However, in the episode Mad About You: The Apartment it is revealed that Paul has been subletting his old apartment to Kramer, thus putting "Mad About You" and "Seinfeld" within the same fictional universe. See more »

Elaine Benes: Oh, come on, Jerry. Please, please, please, please, please!
Jerry Seinfeld: George Constanza...
Elaine Benes: Yeah?
Jerry Seinfeld: Is getting married!
Elaine Benes: Get out!

We're not men, we're children
26 August 2014 | by Emraan07See all my reviews

What to expect from this episode from the previous ones? Will we see the similar shallow obnoxious behavior which normal people will resent or will we see something indifferent now. Is Jerry and George about to change their attitude and grow up and be more mature about life and relationship. The best thing to do is find out through the twenty four minutes of this startup of season seven. Only thing to be aware of that it has some of the best moments of the series.
