21 The Handicap Spot
Having been invited to an engagement party for Drake, Jerry and his friends debate what kind of gift to bring. Convincing George to borrow his father's car, they stop at a shopping mall while on their way to the party and, after parking in a handicap space, head off to buy a big screen television. When they return to the car, they discover that a wheelchair-bound woman's accident has drawn an angry crowd around their illegally parked car and, retreating to plan their escape, they return to find it has been totaled by the mob. While George tells his father that he and his friends were attacked by an irate gang, Kramer announces that he has fallen in love with the injured woman while visiting her in the hospital. Insisting on helping Lola out, Kramer takes George to buy a used wheelchair, while Jerry and Elaine discover that Drake has called off the wedding and has given his fiancé all of the party gifts. Determined to get the TV back, Elaine calls Drake's ex-fiancé only to find that she has donated the gifts to a charity -- one at which George's father also happens to be a volunteer. However, during the meeting where he is being singled out for his years of faithful service to the organization, Frank is arrested for George's illegally parking in a handicap spot. To repay his father for the damage and, the ticket, George takes a page from his pilot for NBC and agrees to become his father's butler. Meanwhile, dumping Kramer after being given the wheelchair, a faulty brake causes Lola to careen out of control while going down a hill. Learning of the accident, Frank decides to give Lola a big screen TV that was recently donated and orders George to get his friends to help deliver it. So, after picking up the set and returning it to get their money back, George is persuaded to park next to a fire hydrant. © 1993 Castle Rock Entertainment. All Rights Reserved.
22 The Pilot, Part 1 and 2
While Jerry and George await news of the future of their pilot, Kramer lobbies to play himself in the show, as NBC President Russell Dalrymple pressures Elaine to go out with him again. Worried about what will happen to him now that he is on the verge of success, George goes to see his therapist. But, when Dana notices a slight discoloration under his lip and suggests he see a doctor, he immediately assumes it is cancer. As everyone at NBC worries about Russell's failure to show up for the auditions, Jerry and George help select the cast. Then, determined to get a shot at a part, Kramer arrives to try out, only to have his audition cut short by a sudden need for a bathroom. But, unable to find a bathroom, he sprints for home and is mugged along the way. Meanwhile, Jerry and Elaine notice that the coffee shop's new owner hired only large-breasted waitresses, and George panics when his doctor orders a biopsy on his lip. Invited to the taping, but fearing another confrontation with Russell, Elaine arrives in a disguise, only to be recognized by a childhood acquaintance. Meanwhile, George gets some good news about his biopsy, Kramer takes extreme measures to regain regularity and the psychotic Joe Davola suddenly leaps from the studio audience and attacks Jerry. As everyone arrives to watch the completed pilot on TV, Kramer announces his success in curing his constipation, while Jerry discovers his father’s long-missing wallet beneath the cushions of his couch. But, just as they are getting used to the idea of being rich television producers, Jerry and George learn that Russell has been fired after mysteriously disappearing and that his replacement is not picking up their show for the new season. Blamed by Jerry for their show’s failure, Elaine presses her case and finds that the coffee shop waitresses are actually the owner’s daughters. Finally, after Russell becomes an environmental activist to redeem himself in Elaine's eyes, he is lost at sea while intercepting a whaling ship. © 1993 Castle Rock Entertainment.

The show about nothing yet it kept us all watching & either cheering them on or wanting to see how they fail. I didn't think I would like it at 1st but my folks watched it. They grew on me, like a fungous. I didn't want to like them but glad I gave them the chance. If you have friends who you say hi to but don't want to invest time in them then these guys will give you lots of ways to handle it. I found the new adventures of old Christine & I'm happy to see the humor again. 👏🤣❤️💜💛💚💙💜👍💯

Without a doubt, one of the best shows ever created. Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld are comedy GENIUSES! So was the whole cast. I've seen every episode a few hundred times and it NEVER EVER gets old. I laugh just as hard as I did when I first watched. I still literally fall off of the couch sometimes laughing. "I met this My AKC King German Shepherd's name is 7 Costanza Zwayer.

Like it or hate it, it can't be denied that Seinfeld has left a lasting impact on the genre of the TV sitcom. Plenty of memorable lines and moments came from this show, like Elaine's off-kilter dancing and the Soup Nazi's bellowing of "No soup for you!".
