That is a bit of a continuity error in the Seinfeld Universe. There was an episode of Mad About You where Jamie found out that Paul had kept the lease on his old apartment and was subletting it. The subletter was Kramer in his Seinfeld apartment.

That was literally the only time I ever saw Mad About You. Quite fortuitous to see the episode with Kramer.

This scene, where Elaine goes into Crazy Joe Davola's apartment is really creepy. I remember watching this episode as a kid and being freaked out.

It's like something right out of Silence of the Lambs. The audience laughter just makes it more surreal and uncomfortable.

Something about the early seasons are already unsettling to begin with.

Larry Charles is loving psychotic and every episode he did had weirdness, taboo or violence in it.

I was going to say, Larry Charles must've written that episode.

That episode he wrote but they never made sounded stupid.

Yeah, I was trying to figure out the uncle thing, but the moment I read this, I could clearly recall the exact line and the exact way George said it, "My father's gay!" with that BFD tone of voice of his.

Thus my post. What a weird misquote (unless it's legit but very obscure).

Remember when Kramer lost the contest? "I'm done!"

Sorry, I'm not trying to be an rear end in a top hat, so I'll shut up.

Sorry to call you out on this as it is very pedantic. However, what I've bolded is somewhat incorrect. In most every publication house's style guide you'll see that acronyms, such as Zip, Laser, Fifa, Nato, etc. only have the first letter capitalized (being proper nouns) since the abbreviation is pronounced as a word. You would only capitalize every letter with an initialism, where every letter is said such as USA (which is not pronounced Oh-sa).

Sorry for the newspaper geek coming out of me, I'll continue the Seinfeld dissection.

I remember the closest we ever came to meeting any of Kramer's unseen friends (Bob Sacameno, Gomez) was in one late season episode where one of them is in a porto-john with Kramer outside. Anyone remember the episode?

I believe it's Lomez. Counter-pedanted.

Michael Richards is so intense in real life. When he talks about Kramer on the DVDs, it's like he's talking about when he played Hamlet. He was very serious about his comedy. Jerry, Jason, and Julia would go out for food after every episode wrapped up, but Michael would rarely come. I can see him getting pissed about people breaking character to laugh. In "The Parking Garage" that box that he was carrying had a real air conditioner in it because he wanted to feel the heft. When he put it in the trunk he busted his lip on it but didn't break character. In "The Glasses" he's installing a different air conditioner in Jerry's apartment, and when it falls he rushes over to try to catch it. He bruised his rib during the take you see and still didn't break character. Guy's a pro.

Yeah, and the bag of cement was real in The Revenge.

That always stood out to me. What could he be talking about? What is absolute zero the answer to that he just deducted while reading?

One of my absolute favorite moments from this show is in the episode where they get the Chinese food, or at least wait for it.

I die laughing every time that random rear end guy comes in and goes, 'HEY! What stinks in here?' and is welcomed as if he is the owner himself. It's just so utterly bizarre, possible, annoying, and fitting that it makes for great comedy.

I like how they don't pick up on the fact that she's lying even though it's painfully obvious, both because of how ridiculous it is and what a horrendous liar Elaine is.

Actually, something that's always irked me about this episode is how the girlfriend rags on George using a crib sheet (crib hand, in this case) to pull off the move correctly. The dude just made you orgasm, what do you care that he had it written down? God knows that if my girlfriend wanted to look up online better ways to blow me, I wouldn't complain.

Yeah, I've wondered about this for pretty much forever. She even says it's "sick." Really? Really? That's way more prudish than being disgusted by "the contest."

I love the Chinese Restaurant; it's one of my favorite episodes. It sucks that Kramer wasn't in it, but The Parking Garage pretty much reused the premise and included him, so that made up for it. I think The Parking Garage was a really underrated episode.

I would say it's definitely a top 5, if not the most, underrated episode.

It also has one of my favorite lines that nobody I know seems to think is funny:

George: A guy goes to the bathroom and never comes back. It's like something out of a science fiction story.

I love the defeated way he says it too.
