i was just thinking about all the movie references in seinfeld (i.e. apocalypse now, schindler's list, the godfather) and was wondering if anybody else could come up with any and the context of the reference

At the end of The Cadillac when Morty is impeached there is a reference to some movie, but I don't know which one.

The English Patient - in one of the earlier episodes ( The Robbery Read the script of The Robbery Download the full epiosde video of The Robbery Discuss The Robbery ?) Jerry gives Elaine the apartment for a weekend and says that if she must have sex, to do it in the bathtub.

Then in The English Patient Read the script of The English Patient Download the full epiosde video of The English Patient Discuss The English Patient she watches the movie and tells the waitress at Monks that sex in the bathtub doesn't work.

Would "Rochelle, Rochelle - An erotic journey from Milan to Minsk" count?

Gotta say no on the Rochelle, Rochelle. I believe they are looking for situations on the show that are in reference to actual movies.

In The Mom and Pop Store Read the script of The Mom and Pop Store Download the full epiosde video of The Mom and Pop Store Discuss The Mom and Pop Store at the ending of this episode, with Kramer suffering a nosebleed and Jerry comforting him in the back of a bus, was a takeoff on the ending to the movie "Midnight Cowboy". The "Midnight Cowboy" theme was present throughout this episode, as Jon Voigt starred in the movie, Jerry wears cowboy boots during the episode, and the theme song from the movie, "Everybody's Talking at Me" is heard playing twice.

Kramer,

To get the episode link to work you have to highlight the episode name by dragging the mouse pointer over it and then just click on the box containing "ep" located right below the smily faces. Cool

It’s not a movie reference but a real life reference that Gendison and Kramer were involved in. The scene where Kramer is driving Gendison to see his fish appears to be footage from the infamous OJ Simpson chase when they show the overhead shot. The whole ordeal of having the suspected killer being driven to his home with police in pursuit is exactly the same as the OJ event.

You are correct Mr Gendison. I wouldn't want to upset Mr Gendison. He might use one of those tees on you. Smile

Dang some of the people posting here sure are a bit thick. Very Happy The topic is supposed to be about SCENES in Seinfeld that strongly reference REAL movies (and not fictional movies mentioned in the series and so forth). Smile The Midnight Cowboy one is a perfect example.

The first one that comes to mind is Oliver Stone's JFK, referenced in The Boyfriend, pt.1. "The spit must have paused - in mid-air, mind you!", "That was one magic lugey", "There must have been a second spitter". Great stuff, very funny.

Does anyone know if the scene in The Library, in which Bookman the Library Detective scolds Jerry in his apartment for failing to return a book, is a reference to any movie?
