JERRY: Oh, that's interesting, because as everyone knows, since there was no
year zero, the millennium doesn't begin until the year two-thousand and one.
Which would make your party, one year late, and thus, quite lame.

This line from The Millenium is the biggest gaffe I have ever noticed on Seinfeld. Remember Newman's party was scheulded for New Year's Eve 1999 so that would make his party one year early, not one year late

It's not a gaffe, because Newman scheduled his party for the millenium, assuming it would be when the year becomes 2000, not 2001. But he was wrong, the third millenium started in 2001.

it's strange to me that so many people always think this is a mistake. i never even noticed the line, the first time i saw this episode. all i thought was, yeah, jerry's right, and he's stickin' it to poor newmie again.

That IS one year early tho! If the party is in 2000 and the real millenium is 2001, its one year early!

full disclosure, please bear with me.

newmie says that he scheduled his party for the millennium new year. the millennium new year began January 1st, 2001, so his party was therefore set for December 31st, 2000.

now, everyone else in the world were planning their millennium parties for December 31st, 1999, to celebrate the rather monumental switchover from the 1000s to the 2000s. nobody gave a damn about the changeover from 2000 to 2001, even though techincally, this changeover was the millennium changeover.

jerry isn't saying that newmie's party will be a year late in terms of the millennium new year. he's saying that it will be late -- and thus, quite lame -- because it will be taking place on December 31st, 2000, one year after everybody else has had their (technically incorrect, in terms of scheduling) millennium parties.

it's not a mistake.

lovin' every minute of it

JERRY: How could they not fire you?

GEORGE: Never thought I'd fail at failing.

You see everything don't you?
We need a new format. Maybe we should shut down and re-tool

How about a guest troll. You know, lately I've tried reading the no-name troll posts. Can't tell the difference.

That place is about to have the sale-of-the-century: nothing over ninety-nine cents.
