Storyline

The gang has various encounters with a man named Jimmy, who talks about himself in the 3rd person. Elaine asks Jimmy to go to the benefit for the Able Mentally Challenged Adults organization starring Mel Torme. Thanks to Jimmy's shoes and getting too much Novocaine at Whatley's office, Kramer is mistaken for a mentally challenged man when he encounters the head of the AMCA. Jerry suspects Tim Whatley and his assistant are using patients for sexual pleasures when he finds pornographic magazines in Whatley's waiting room and thinks that he was violated while under the gas. George cuts a deal with Jimmy to sell Jimmy's shoes, but Jimmy gets injured thanks to Kramer's drooling. The deal, plus some spicy chicken, also helps Wilhelm accuse George of stealing some of the Yankee's batting equipment. Written by halo1k

Trivia

The scene where Tim Whatley gasses himself was totally improvised by Bryan Cranston and it reduced Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David to laughter. Cranston got the idea off one of the crew members. See more »

Goofs

When security starts to drag Jimmy away, they carry him upright. In the next shot, they carry him in a horizontal position. See more »

Quotes

Cosmo Kramer: [talking about Dr. Whatley's dentistry practice in a slurred voice] He's got a new policy. Adults only. It's great. You don't have to watch your language.
Jerry: You feel the need to use a lot of obscenities at the dentist?
Cosmo Kramer: When they pull that needle out, I let the ex-ple-tives fly!

"George is getting upset!"
4 October 2011 | by itamarscomixSee all my reviews

Season 6, Episode 18, "The Jimmy"

"The Jimmy" shows better than any other episode just how different season 6 was from seasons 4 and 5. While the earlier seasons relied heavily on the four main characters, the interactions between them in very limited settings, and their dealings with various social situations, season 6 began to rely on more supporting characters, more locations, more physical comedy and gags, and more outlandish situations.

None of which really takes anything away from the quality. While the scripts are less tight, the show is also less wordy and as a result constantly funny. "The Jimmy" is in fact one of the funniest Seinfeld episodes ever, Michael Richards and Jason Alexander are both in top form and Bryan Cranston makes yet another memorable appearance as jerkass dentist Tim Whatley. Classic.
