gs: Jennifer Lynn Campbell (Tia) Scott Burkholder (Prisoner) Jim J. Bullock (Attendant #1) Allan Wasserman (Grossbard) Lenny Rose (Passenger #1) Karen Denise Williams (Attendant #2) Annie Korzen (Passenger #2) Deck McKenzie (Security Guard) Maggie Egan (Ticket Clerk) Mark Christopher Lawrence (Sky Cap) Jack Graiman (Cop) William Evan Masters (Driver) Larry David (Voice of Man ordering the leftover kosher meal (uncredited))

When their flight home gets canceled, Jerry & Elaine gets on another flight, the latter gets cramped into coach and Jerry parties in 1st class with a model. George and Kramer go between JFK and La Guardia to pick them up. When they settle on an airport George meets a convict and Kramer sees a man who owes him $240 from years ago.

b: 25-Nov-92 pc: 412 w: Larry Charles d: Tom Cherones

NOTE: Larry Charles makes a cameo appearance as the guy who stinks up the bathroom before Elaine goes in. Thanks to Greg Gattuso for this tidbit. Greg is author of the book "The Seinfeld Universe".
Viewer Paul Brackett, who must work in the airline industry, notes the following:
"They were flying from St. Louis to JFK, then to LGA. Only TWA flies these routes non-stop. They showed 2 ground shots of the aircraft, and both of the ground shots were of a Southwest airlines Boeing 737. Then they showed the plane in flight a couple of times, both shots were of a McDonnell Douglas DC-9. Then they showed the interior of the coach section, in which the colors of the seats and the configuration resembled the interior of a Delta coach plane, with 3-3 seating. Both the 737 and the DC-9 are 3-2 seating. Then they showed the interior of the first class section, which looked like the interior of a Continental DC-10 First class section, based on seating arrangements and color of the seats. One would think that folks in the TV industry would fly enough to notice these things!"
A St. Louis based viewer, Randy Canis notes that Jerry and Elaine are not at the real Lambert Field. I wouldn't expect them to be, that would be too expensive to film and only viewers familiar with the airport would ever notice.

Viewer Joe notes that Elaine is supposed to visiting her sister in St. Louis. This is one of only a few references to Elaine having a sister.

Listen closely to when Elain is discussing what a kosher meal is with various people on the plane. You'll hear geroge Steinbrenner (larry david) talking, off the screen.

This is really obsure, but when elaine and jerry are at the ticket counter talking about the first class ticket elaine says somehing I cant make out.
Jerry- Elaine, I've flown first class, I cant go back to coach, I wont
Elaine- (says something about coach I think)
Jerry- (I believe says) yeah that's true.

Elaine says something to the effect of, "well you flew here in coach", and Jerry says "You have a point there" -something liek that anyway

Jerry's comedy bit about the first class curtain is a classic...

"Well perhaps if you'd worked a bit harder, I wouldn't have to do this"

... and closes the first class curtain.

Re: the commentary... grateful though I am that someone has put in all that effort of transcribing, I find it annoying too... here's an example:

"Meanwhile, back on the plane, Jerry and Tia are chatting (isn't that always the way? You get stuck beside someone who insists on going on and on about their kids and how their life didn't go according to plan and
all that boring dreck...)"

All rather unnecessary. Guess it depends who transcribed. I'm sure *they* thought it was funny at the time. Rolling Eyes

Tia to Jerry (after his comment on fudge distribution): I've never met a man who knew so much about nothing.

No, Kramah, the airport pickup is a binding social contract. We must go forward, not back...

Good looking Bean. This is another line that alludes to the show being about "nothing." In fact, in the clips show of the first 100 episodes, this line would have been good to place in the segment that shows the characters talking things in relation to "nothing."

A couple-o-things about this episode.

Jerry and Elaine are told that only two seats remian on thier flight, one in first-class (I can't go back. I can't, I won't) and one in coach. Later, Elaine snekas into first-class and there are several empty seats.

Second, the plane they show when they are boarding (presumably their plane) is definitely a Southwest Airlines MD-80. They do not have first-class on Southwest flights.... Sad

Elaine's bags at the end are her carry-on bags.

My son and I are watching this one the other night and he points to one of George's speech pattern idiosyncrasies, putting the emPHASis on a word within a sentence different from most mortal men.

Kramer:
I like to stop at the duty free shop.
George:
The duty free SHOP?

another is-

Modeling Agent:
Have you ever done any hand modeling?
George:
Hand MODELING?

Minutiae to be absolutely sure, but typical of George's speech and, IMHO, central to the effectiveness of his delivery.
