Did You Know?


Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld), George (Jason Alexander), Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), and Kramer (Michael Richards) spend the episode trying to find their lost car in a parking garage. The episode was supposed to end with the four of them driving around without being able to find the exit. While shooting, however, the car wouldn't start, resulting in a revised ending. Kramer getting out of the car, looking into the horizon, and getting back in was completely improvised, and it's possible to see the other actors starting to laugh at the end of the take.

There are same cars in all scenes at parking. For example, dark blue Volvo 940, parked in different positions, is visible in many shots. See more »


[first lines]
Jerry Seinfeld: It's very hard to find the store that you want in a mall. They have the directory, but the problem with it is even if you figure out where you are and where you wanna go, you still don't really know, sometimes, which way to walk, because it's an upright map. If you had, like, suction-cup feet, then you could just, thp, walk right up on it. Then you could tell. You could just be on it, going, "All right, I'm here. I wanna go to the Gap. That's down there.

Lost and Micturition.
17 December 2006 | by Antoine_BugleboySee all my reviews

Single Favorite Line: (Kramer) "Jerry, are you aware that, adult diapers are a $600,000,000-a-year Industry?"

Notable Guest Stars:David Dunard (Security Guard), Adam Wylie (Kid / Brat)

Memorable Exchange: (all four looking for car) Elaine: "Well, I'm sure it's right around here" - Kramer: "Yeh, yeah, looks familiar --I remember the elevator..." - George: "There's elevators all OVER --everything looks the same!..We're like rats in some experiment!!" - Jerry: "There it is, it's over there!" (they all walk to where it isn't)

Key Topics: *Forgotten Parking Spots *Urination *Thrift *Unfriendliness *Scientology

Part I Didn't Like: The security guards seeming omniscience about when people are on the verge of losing control of their bladder.

Extra Nice Touch: Richards (Kramer) is carrying a real - and really heavy- air conditioner, throughout the episode, and it shows...adding to this weak episode his saving grace --the patented Kramer pratfalls.

4 of 10 - more dead than alive
