Storyline

Susan's friends are in town for the Broadway production of Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Kramer gets to wear the coat and is mistaken for a pimp in public when he accuses a local parking lot of running a prostitution ring out of his car. Jerry buys a jacket and later returns it for spite. Elaine tries to buy a dress from the same guy Jerry gets the jacket from, but is stunned to learn that he's holding it until Elaine sleeps with him. Written by halo1k

Trivia

George (Jason Alexander) is enthusiastic about parking in the Jiffy Park lot which is the opposite to his feeling about parking in a lot in episode 3.22, Seinfeld: The Parking Space (1992). Then he said, "parking in a lot is like going to a prostitute, why pay for it, when if i apply myself i can get it for free." See more »

Painful
7 October 2006 | by GafaddictSee all my reviews

There's something missing from this episode. I'm not sure what it is... this one just seems to miss the cutting-edge Seinfeld humor most episodes usually have. One particular detractor from this is the flamboyantly gay and unbelievably stereotypical wig master who is staying with George and Susan - whose character seems to destroy every scene he's in. None of the four main characters have any particularly great lines in this one - except for Kramer's interaction with the cop at the end of episode. The whole Kramer-as-a-pimp bit was overplayed. Coming from Spike Feresten, I'm surprised he couldn't have handled this episode better.

Case in point, avoid it.
