"The Ex-Girlfriend"

My favorite episode of the first season, "The Ex-Girlfriend" is very good.

It starts as George breaks up with his girlfriend Marlene, partly because of her voice and because he leaves long phone messages. He's trying to think of the best way to go about this, and Jerry suggests, "You should just do it like a Band-Aid. One motion! Right off!"

Elaine also relates a story about her and a guy in their building. They start of talking to each other when they pass, then they just say hi, then it evolved into just a head nod, and now nothing. According to Elaine, this has created a deep animosity in their relationship, which is essentially based on nothing. She asks George and Jerry for advice, and George says that if he were a different person, he would confront him.

Kramer enters eating cantaloupe, which he says he got at Joe's, whereas Jerry gets his from the supermarket, much to the dismay of Kramer. Kramer also tells Jerry that he can return the fruit if he doesn't like it, and Jerry replies that he doesn't reutrn fruit because he knows going in that it's a gamble.

By this point George breaks up with his girlfriend, but then remembers that he forgot his books there, and he asks Jerry to go get them. But when Jerry does go get them, he ends up being attracted to her, because of her voice. Even though she calls a lot, he can't stop seeing her.

Later, George's back starts to hurt, and Jerry insists he go see his chiropractor, against George's wishes. So George sees him, and he is unimpressed, as, in his mind, he paid $75 for 2 minutes, and he tells Jerry he's only paying half. Later, Jerry asks George if it's ok that he plans on seeing Marlene, and George is fine with it, much to his surprise.

So Jerry takes Marlene back to her place, where she breaks things off on the basis that she didn't like his act, telling Jerry she can't be with a man if she doesn't respect what he does. Jerry tries to make excuses like the crowd was weak, or that it was a weekday and he has better stuff on the weekend. In the end, it's not enough to convince Marlene, and the show ends. But what a great episode it was.

Favorite Quotes from "The Ex-Girlfriend"

JERRY: A relationship is an organism. You created this thing and then you starved it so it turned against you. Same thing happened to The Blob.

KRAMER: See, the other thing is, if you don't like anything, he takes it right back.
JERRY: I don't return fruit. Fruit is a gamble. I know that going in.

JERRY: No, no. It's not your fault. Books, books, I need my books. Have you re-read those books yet, by the way? You know the great thing? When you read Moby Dick the second time, Ahab and the whale become good friends.

RECEPTIONIST: The doctor'll see you now.
GEORGE: (To Jerry, sarcastically) Yeah, doctor.

GEORGE: What's seventy-five bucks? What, am I seeing Sinatra in there?! Am I being entertained? I don't understand this. I'm only paying half.

MARLENE: Well, okay. I guess things changed for me on Tuesday night.
JERRY: Tuesday night? What happened Tuesday night?
MARLENE: ..I saw your act.
JERRY: My act? What does that have to do with anything?
MARLENE: Well, to be honest, it just didn't make it for me. It's just so much fluff.
JERRY: I can't believe this. So what are you saying? You didn't like my act, so that's it?
MARLENE: I can't be with someone if I don't respect what they do.
JERRY: You're a cashier!
MARLENE: Look, Jerry, it's just not my kind of humor.
JERRY: You can't go by the audience that night. It was late. They were terrible.
MARLENE: I heard the material.
JERRY: I have other stuff. You should come see me on the weekend.

"The Fire"

The third to last episode of Season 5, but The Fire is a classic.

George goes over to his girlfriend's apartment for a birthday party, where this is a clown there that doesn't know who Bozo is, much to the dismay of George. Then, at the birthday party, there's a fire in the apartment. George runs out and pushes everyone out of the way, including his girlfriend's mom, who needed a walker. This causes hilarity when they are all outside, and George is trying to explain his actions, which eventually winds up with the fireman asking George how he lives with himself, to which George answers, "It's not easy."

The other subplot involves Jerry, Elaine, Kramer, and Elaine's coworker Toby, who's a "package full of energy." Kramer decides to take her to one of Jerry's shows, and she begins to heckle him. This costs Jerry a good review, so he goes to her office to heckle her, which upsets her so much that she runs out of the office and her toe is cut off by a street sweeper.

However, Kramer is there, and he eventually recovers the toe, but not before getting on a bus and being attacked by a man with a gun, and the bus driver passes out forcing Kramer to fight off the attacker and drive the bus. Also during this time Kramer continues to make the stops, because "they kept ringing the bell!"

This all results in Toby getting her toe back, and then getting a promotion that Elaine was also up for and was perhaps more qualified for. All in all a high quality episode.

Favorite Quotes from "The Fire"

JERRY: You don't know? Come on, that's gold!
ELAINE: Well, I don't know about "gold."
JERRY: Oh, that's gold, baby.
ELAINE: 'Baby'? What, are you doing George now?
JERRY: I was saying 'baby' way before George!

GEORGE: How can you call yourself a clown and not know who Bozo is?
ERIC: Hey, man - what are you hassling me for? This is just a gig, it's not my life. I don't know who Bozo is, what - is he a clown?
GEORGE: Is he a clown? What, are you kidding me!?
ERIC: Well, what is he?
GEORGE: Yes, he's a clown!
ERIC: Alright, so what's the big deal! There's millions of clowns!
GEORGE: Alright, just forget it.
ERIC: Me forget it? You should forget it! You're livin' in the past, man! You're hung up on some clown from the sixties, man!

GEORGE: Because! Because, as the leader...if I die...then all hope is lost! Who would lead? The clown? Instead of castigating me, you should all be thanking me. What kind of a topsy-turvy world do we live in, where heroes are cast as villains? Brave men as cowards?
ROBIN: But I saw you push the women and children out of the way in a mad panic! I saw you knock them down! And when you ran out, you left everyone behind!
GEORGE: Seemingly. Seemingly, to the untrained eye, I can fully understand how you got that impression. What looked like pushing...what looked like knocking down...was a safety precaution! In a fire, you stay close to the ground, am I right? And when I ran out that door, I was not leaving anyone behind! Oh, quite the contrary! I risked my life making sure that exit was clear. Any other questions?
FIREMAN: How do you live with yourself?
GEORGE: Its not easy.

JERRY: You know what? I think I'm gonna do that! She came down to where I work, I'll go down to where she works!
GEORGE: This is unprecedented!
JERRY: There's no precedent, baby!
GEORGE: What...are you using my babies now?

KRAMER: Well, after he heckled Toby, she got so upset, she ran out of the building and a street sweeper ran over her foot and severed her pinky toe.
GEORGE: That's unbelievable!
KRAMER: Yeah! Then after the ambulance left, I found the toe! So I put it in a Cracker Jack box, filled it with ice, and took off for the hospital.
GEORGE: You ran?
KRAMER: No, I jumped on the bus. I told the driver, "I got a toe here, buddy - step on it."
GEORGE: Holy cow!
KRAMER: Yeah, yeah, then all of a sudden, this guy pulls out a gun. Well, I knew any delay is gonna cost her her pinky toe, so I got out of the seat and I started walking towards him. He says, "Where do you think you're going, Cracker Jack?" I said, "Well, I got a little prize for ya, buddy - " - knocked him out cold!
GEORGE: How could you do that?!
KRAMER: Then everybody is screamin,' because the driver, he's passed out from all the commotion...the bus is out of control! So, I grab him by the collar, I take him out of the seat, I get behind the wheel and now I'm drivin' the bus.
GEORGE: You're Batman.
KRAMER: Yeah. Yeah, I am Batman. Then the mugger, he comes to, and he starts chokin' me! So I'm fightin' him off with one hand and I kept drivin' the bus with the other, y'know? Then I managed to open up the door, and I kicked him out the door with my foot, you know - at the next stop.
JERRY: You kept makin' all the stops?
KRAMER: Well, people kept ringin' the bell!
GEORGE: Well, what about the toe? What happened to the toe?
KRAMER: Well! I am happy to say that the little guy is back in place at the end of the line.
GEORGE: You did all this...for a pinky toe?
KRAMER: Well, it's a valuable appendage.

JERRY: So you feel "women and children first," in this day and age, is somewhat of an antiquated notion.
GEORGE: To some degree.
JERRY: So basically, it's every man, woman, child, and invalid for themselves.
GEORGE: In a manner of speaking.
JERRY: Well, it's honest.
GEORGE: Yeah. She should be commending me for treating everyone like equals.
JERRY: Well, perhaps when she's released from the burn center, she'll see things differently.

"The Library"

Probably my favorite Seinfeld episode, so I'll start with this to review.

I think the biggest reason that this is my favorite is because of Lt. Bookman, who I consider the be probably the best character ever on the show, at least outside of the Big 4. I had a very good laugh at each of his lines, just because of the way he said them. And the coat thing. Oh my, what a character!

The whole storyline itself is very humorous. Jerry gets a call from the library that he has an overdue book from 1971. At first he is positive that he returned the book, but then we learn that George dropped it in gym class and it was taken by the gym teacher, who called George "Cantstandya."

The other storyline is Kramer putting the moves on the Marion the librarian. This is very funny, especially when he reads her poetry and cries, only the poetry actually sucks. But that's ok.

So what do you get with a great storyline, the best character ever, and some great lines? One of, if not the best episode ever.

Favorite Quotes from "The Library"

KRAMER: "The Dewey Decimal System - what a scam that was. Boy that Dewey guy really cleaned up on that deal."

KRAMER: "Look at her. This is a lonely woman looking for companionship.. Spinster. ..Maybe a virgin.. Maybe she got hurt a long time ago. She was a schoolgirl. There was a boy - It didn't work out. Now she needs a little tenderness. She needs a little understanding. (Warming up to the idea) She needs a little Kramer."
JERRY: "Yeah, and then she'll need a little shot of penicillin."

KRAMER: "Hey, uh, I'll see you boys later." (Turns to the librarian) "So uh, what's a guy got to do around here to get a library card?"

This is long, but this is probably my favorite scene ever, so here it is:
JERRY: (Enters his home to find Mr. Bookman waiting for him) "Oh, I'm glad you're here, so we can get this all straightened out. Would you like a cup of tea?"

: "You got any coffee?"
JERRY: "Coffee?"
BOOKMAN: "Yeah. Coffee."
JERRY: "No, I don't drink coffee."
BOOKMAN: "Yeah, you don't drink coffee? How about instant coffee?"
JERRY: "No, I don't have.."
BOOKMAN: (Cutting him off) "You don't have any instant coffee?"
JERRY: "Well, I don't normally.."
BOOKMAN: "Who doesn't have instant coffee?"
JERRY: "I don't."
BOOKMAN: "You buy a jar of Folger's Crystals, you put it in the cupboard, you forget about it. Then, later on, when you need it, it's there. It lasts forever. It's freeze-dried.. Freeze-dried Crystals."
JERRY: "Really? I'll have to remember that."
BOOKMAN: "You took this book out in 1971."
JERRY: "Yes, and I returned it in 1971."
BOOKMAN: "Yeah, '71. That was my first year on the job.. Bad year for libraries. Bad year for America. Hippies burning library cards, Abby Hoffman telling everybody to steal books. I don't judge a man by the length of his hair or the kind of music he listens to. Rock was never my bag. But you put on a pair of shoes when you walk into the New York Public Library, fella."
JERRY: "Look, Mr. Bookman. I-I returned that book. I remember it very specifically."
BOOKMAN: "You're a comedian, you make people laugh."
JERRY: "I try."
BOOKMAN: "You think this is all a big joke, don't you?"
JERRY: "No, I don't."
BOOKMAN: "I saw you on T.V. once; I remembered your name - from my list. I looked it up. Sure enough, it checked out. You think because you're a celebrity that somehow the law doesn't apply to you? That you're above the law?"
JERRY: "Certainly not."
BOOKMAN: "Well, let me tell you something, funny boy. Y'know that little stamp, the one that says "New York Public Library"? Well that may not mean anything to you, but that means a lot to me. One whole hell of a lot. Sure, go ahead, laugh if you want to. I've seen your type before: Flashy, making the scene, flaunting convention. Yeah, I know what you're thinking, 'What's this guy making such a big stink about old library books?' Well, let me give you a hint, junior. Maybe we can live without libraries, people like you and me. Maybe. Sure, we're too old to change the world, but what about that kid, sitting down, opening a book, right now, in a branch at the local library and finding drawings of pee-pees and wee-wees on the Cat in the Hat and the Five Chinese Brothers? Doesn't HE deserve better? Look. If you think this is about overdue fines and missing books, you'd better think again. This is about that kid's right to read a book without getting his mind warped! (Pauses) Or, maybe that turns you on, Seinfeld; maybe that's how y'get your kicks. You and your good-time buddies.. Well I got a flash for ya, joy-boy: Party time is over. Y'got seven days, Seinfeld. That is one week!"

BOOKMAN: "I remember when the librarian was a much older woman: Kindly, discreet, unattractive. We didn't know anything about her private life.. We didn't want to know anything about her private life. She didn't have a private life. While you're thinking about that, think about this: The library closes at five o'clock, no exceptions. This is your final warning. Got that, kewpie-doll?"

JERRY: "Anyway, I hope there's no hard feelings.."
BOOKMAN: "Hard feelings? What do you know about hard feelings? Y'ever have a man die in your arms? Y'ever kill somebody?"
JERRY: "What is your problem?"
BOOKMAN: "What's my problem? Punks like you, that's my problem. And you better not screw up again Seinfeld, because if you do, I'll be all over you like a pit bull on a poodle."
