Trivia

Due to the low water pressure with his new shower head, Kramer (Michael Richards) takes a bath as if it's for the first time and acts disgusted with the concept of it. Back in episode 5.17 Seinfeld: The Wife (1994) however, he clearly stated he took baths rather than showers. See more »

Goofs

When Peterman comes into Elaine's office to tell her she tested positive for opium, he lowers his head to look directly at Elaine while talking to her. In the next shot, his head is raised and he is looking just over her head. See more »

Quotes

Cosmo Kramer: All right, now here's the lowdown. From a certain connection, I've been able to locate some black market shower heads. They're all made in the former Yugoslavia, and from what I hear the Serbs are fanatic about their showers.
Jerry Seinfeld: Not from the footage I've seen.

"You're an Adonis!"
2 September 2016 | by juanmaffeoSee all my reviews

An entertaining filler, it is nevertheless kind of substanceless.

The parts involving uncle Leo are the best by far and the Costanza's situation is really funny but everything else feels thin and disjointed.

Elaine story had potential but it never reached it, the shower problem was kind of funny and that's it. The Seinfeld's moving in an out of apartments was a mess and we didn't get anything from the season's arc (George's engagement).

Overall, it's not a bad episode but certainly not in the level of Season's 7 classics.
