gs: Philip Baker Hall (Lt. Bookman) Ashley Gardener (Marion) Harris Shore (Mr. Lippman) Cynthia Szigeti (Sandy) Biff Yeager (Heyman) Neal Lerner ("Shusher") Marie Barrientos (Receptionist)

The library asks Jerry about a book he checked out in 1971 and never returned, so Jerry looks up an old girlfriend for his defense against a library cop. George thinks the homeless man he'd seen outside the library is a former gym high school gym teacher that he got fired. Kramer has his eye on a librarian. Elaine worries about her career when her boss hates the recommendations she made.

b: 16-Oct-91 pc: 304 w: Larry Charles d: Joshua White

NOTE: According to viewer Jeffrey Abucay, Marion the Librarian says that Mr. Bookman has been working at the library for 25 years, however Lt. Bookman himself states that 1971 was his first year on the job, which would mean he's been working at the library for twenty years, not twenty five.
Jeff Holland notes that this episode features the appearance of the "infamous" green bike. Why is it infamous?
Viewer Bill Watson notes that people often forget, myself included, about Harris Shore's only appearance as Mr. Lippman. Richard Fancy assumes that role beginning in the "The Red Dot."

i just watched this episode. for some reason i never catch this one on tv. the exchange between bookman and jerry in jerry's apt, is absolutely hysterical.
you can see during the whole exchange in Jerry's apartment, that jerry is trying as hard as he can to keep from cracking up.

I like how in the first confrontation, jerry tells mr. bookman that he doesnt drink coffee while the whole series features jerry drinking coffee in almost every episode

I think of all guest stars that ever starred in the show, Phillip Baker Hall is the only one to upstage Jerry big time on screen. He has an amazing screen presence during the scene.

And every time I see this episode, I feel as though Hall improvised during the shoot, which is probably why Jerry was trying so hard not to laugh.

Stan, could you check up on this?

Stan the Caddy mentions this as the first episode of the Green "Klein Attitude" Bike hanging in the hallway.

In many episodes where there are scenes in the city, you will notice the cast walking past a "Specialized" bike dealer.

Free advertising or was that paid for to be there?

With all the bike imagery, you'd think there would have been at least one reference to actually riding the bike, other than the episode where Kramer wants Elaine
's girl bike she bought at an antique shop.

lovin' every minute of it

In The Apology, Jerry says to his good naked/bad naked girlfriend that he doesn’t ride the bike and that it’s just for show.
