Storyline

When Jerry runs into an old college friend, Diane, she asks how George is and what he's doing now. Not knowing what else to say, Jerry says George is a marine biologist - George had been talking about a science program on TV - and she takes a definite interest. They start seeing each other but a walk on the beach proves fateful. Kramer has gotten himself a car trunk full of golf balls and decides to go to the beach to practice his golf. He also gives Elaine a electronic organizer. Elaine is thrilled at the prospect of meeting famed Russian author, Testikov, but one of Jerry's practical jokes backfires. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

George's (Jason Alexander) final monologue was not in the original script. Larry David came up with the idea while the episode was being filmed and wrote it on the spot. Jason Alexander quickly memorized the monologue and only one take was filmed. Correction: More than one take of this monologue was filmed. Elaine's hand is not against her head right after George says, "Easy big fella!" then they immediately cut to another camera angle and her hand is against her head. So they filmed at least two takes. You can also see Julia Louis-Dreyfus trying not to laugh after Alexander says, "Easy big fella." This is probably why they had to do a second take because Dreyfus was known to break into laughter quite a bit during tapings. See more »

Quotes

[last lines]
George: The sea was angry that day, my friends - like an old man trying to send back soup in a deli. I got about fifty feet out and suddenly, the great beast appeared before me. I tell you he was ten stories high if he was a foot. As if sensing my presence, he let out a great bellow. I said, "Easy, big fella!" And then, as I watched him struggling, I realized that something was obstructing its breathing. From where I was standing, I could see directly into the eye of the great fish.
Jerry: Mammal.

Season 5, Episode 14, "The Marine Biologist"

"The Marine Biologist" is possibly the best episode in Seinfeld's fifth season, and one of the best in the whole series. While other episodes usually had two, three or four parallel story lines, here George is the clear star of the episode, and Jason Alexander delivers some of his best, most hilarious acting. His monologue at the end of the episode, in particular, is genius and one of the finest moments in the series.

That's not to say that the other actors don't pull their weight. Elaine has some hilarious moments, and Kramer has brief but fantastic scenes. Rosalind Allen and Carol Kane drop by for great guest appearances. All around, one of the very best episodes of this wonderful show.
