gs: David Dunard (Security Guard) Cynthia Ettinger (Michelle) Gregory Daniel (Man in Corvette) Carlyle King (Mother) Adam Wylie (Kid) Joe Farago (Man with Woman) Ron Evans (Bodybuilder) Tucker Smallwood (Man in Mercedes)

Everyone separates to try to find the car in a huge parking garage. Jerry needs the use of a bathroom so he finds a place to go and gets busted. Elaine tries to get help from people passing by. George joins Jerry in getting busted. Kramer is wearing "the jacket," and forgets where he put down the air conditioner he was carrying and causes George to be real late for his parent's 47th anniversary.

b: 30-Oct-91 pc: 306 w: Larry David d: Tom Cherones

NOTE: Viewer Kyle Westphal notes that Kramer parks in Purple 23. This happens to be the 23rd episode. Another viewer, Kyle Matschke notes that Kramer put the air conditioner down in Purple 23 and Jerry peed in Yellow 14.

The part at the end where Kramer cannot start the car was not supposed to be in the script as revealed by Larry David in an article I read some time ago. If you look very closely when the car won't start you can see George and Elaine trying to keep from laughing hysterically from the irony of the car not starting. This also confirms that the car not starting was not in the script but nevertheless, was a good ending.

My friend and I were watching the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre the other night and picked up on a little something. In the movie, when they're calling out to Jerry, it sounds exactly like the way they're calling out to Jerry in this episode. I wonder if that was just coincidence or did they deliberately write the script that way? Has anyone else noticed this?

In the beggining of the episode, kramer is using a red all star, when he is carrying that air conditioner, but in the end of the episode, just when they ar waiting for kramer next to the car, kramer appears, and we can see now that the all star he's wearing is green!!

Did anybody notice that when they start the episode Kramer says they parked in Green 22 and that's where they start, and at the end of the episode they are in the exact same place!

Jimmy loves Jerry's idea for labeling parking levels with names you'd never "Your Mother's A Whore." LMAO!!

This isn't the first episode without Jerry's apartment. "The Chinese Restaurant" is one that is definitely before this episode.

Did anyone think that one of the men Elaine walks past, late in the episode asking to help her, could actually be Larry Charles?
I watched this the other night and after seeing interviews with him on the DVD's it looks a lot like a 10 years ago version of him.

Jerry getting caught for peeing and making up the whole story including his little brother who's probably having a peeing party is hilarious.

This episode was on free-to-air in Australia last night. I was extremely disappointed that the part at the end of the episode where Kramer gets out of the car to look around (that was unscripted as Adam Roederer points out) was cut off. By the way, what was the scripted ending?; does anyone know?

The "Inside Look" segment for this episode on the DVD actually shows the last page of the working script. Kramer takes out his parking stub and says: "Boy, this garage is going to cost a fortune. You know how long we were here?" The script then says: "SILENCE. HE STARTS UP THE CAR AND AS THEY HEAD OUT... FADE OUT. END OF ACT TWO. END OF EPISODE."

Btw: If you're one of those fans who own the DVDs and who've never liked "The Parking Garage," or who think it's overrated, then watch the "Inside Look" and give it another chance.

If you pay attention, when Kramer puts the air conditioner on the trunk of the car, he knocks his mouth on it, and it starts to blid. That really happend, and he says to Elaine that he was hurt!!!

FYI: The transcript for The Parking Garage is full of mistakes. They are too numerous to detail, but I'll mention one, because I used this quote today and I mistakenly relied on this transcript.

About three minutes into the episode, they realize they're lost. They're trying to remember where the color-code where Kramer parked his car. The transcript has Jerry saying, "I thought it was green. I remember seeing green." The actual line is: "I remember orange. I thought it was orange."

So did you copy-paste that line from the script to the seinfeld game thread?
