gs: Jay Brooks (Sid) Janet Zarish (Rental Car Agent) Edward Penn (Owen March) Jeff Barton (Paramedic)

Jerry's car is stolen and the criminal picks up his car phone. George decides to take a fill-in job moving cars from one side of the street to the other; this turns into a disaster for local traffic flow. Kramer gets a chance to do a line in a Woody Allen film; "these pretzels are making me thirsty." Elaine gets tired of her 66-year-old boyfriend and when she is about to break up with him, he has what might be a heart attack or something.

b: 04-Dec-91 pc: 310 w: Larry David and Bill Masters d: Tom Cherones

NOTE: Viewer Burton Reibling notes that while Kramer almost got his line in Woddy's film. Julia Louis-Dreyfus has a single line in Hannah and Her Sisters. In her scene Woody Allen arrives at work (he is working at a television network), and Julia says, "Mickey, we have half an hour until airtime." She delivers this line about 10 - 15 minutes into the film, and about a minute later John Turturro also has a line.
Viewer Kevin Hercules notes the following blooper: Jerry is driving a BMW. In a BMW, the defroster is on the top of the vent positions. Jerry tells the guy that stole his car that it is on the bottom. In the yet another blooper category, viewer Jeff Holland notes that George moves fast. In an editing blooper in one shot he is across the room by the window. In the next shot, he is in the kitchen behind Jerry. He also notes the irony, that Jason has the side job as "Pretzel Boy" when George utters the line "these pretzels are making me thirsty."
Jeff Holland also notes that Jerry's car phone number 555-8383 is used in a later episode as his home number.

In some cities parking is allowed on one side of the street or the other on certain (alternate) days. For instance, left side of the street on MWF, right side on TandTh, no restrictions on weekends. Often it is for purposes of street sweeeping and other service provision.

my favorite episode!
Elaine- He's vibrant
Would you date a 66 year old woman?
Jerry- I tell you she'd have to be very vibrant, so vibrant, she'd be spinning.

The scene at the car rental place is classic!!

Jerry- But the reservation keeps the car here, thats why you have the reservation.
Woman- I know why we have reservations
Jerry- I dont think you do. If you did I'd have a car.

lovin' every minute of it

Agent: Alright. We have a blue Ford Escort for you Mr. Seinfeld. Would you
like insurance?

Jerry: Yeah, you better give me the insurance, because I am gonna beat the hell
out of this car.

OK people, I may be crazy but.....I think the car thief that Jerry talks to on the phone is Larry David. If you listen closely the voice will sound very familiar.

Car Agent: I know why we have reservations.

Jerry: I don't think you do. If you did, I'd have a car. See, you know how to
TAKE the reservation, you just don't know how to HOLD the reservation and
that's really the most important part of the reservation, the holding. Anybody
can just take them.

The rental car scene doesn't hold a candle to the scene where Owen is unconscious and Kramer puts a cookie in his mouth and Kramer is working his jaw up and down and says: "I got him chewing but I don't think he's going to swallow."

Why did Elaine date this old guy? Seems odd she would see some old guy that wasnt even rich and want to sleep with him, as Jerry finds out she had sex with him.

My favorite part is when the paramedics find the cookies in Owen's mouth and go "Who put cookies in his mouth?!"

In this episode, George has a shirt on that says "Broadway Bound", a musical that he was in-I thought that was cool-and also the way he said,"THESE PRETZELS.....ARE MAKING ME THIRSTY!"

if you look closely, when Elain brings Owen into Jerry's apartment, his eyes are open for a split second when Jerry opens the door, even though he has been passed out for a while
