Does anyone know why this episode is called the Soup? Surely it should be "The Suit"??

I haven't seen this episode for some time but soup was a major part of the show. Jerry takes Bania to dinner to repay him for the suit and Bania decides to order soup. Bania claims that soup is not a meal and Jerry still owes him. Jerry and Elaine have a discussion as to whether or not soup is a meal. I suppose that either The Suit or The Soup Read the script of The Soup Download the full epiosde video of The Soup Discuss The Soup would have been a suitable name.

I agree, I cant beleive that kelly is the same actress who played marlene. That's a great spot who ever did it. and what a great acting job by Tracy Kolis. As Marlene she has long hair, and a southern accent, but no accent and short hair as kelly. Also, dont you think kelly looks a lot like George's g/f who handed elaine the big salad? I cant remember the episode. I thought they might be the same actress.

Well it depends on what kind of soup it is as to whether or not it should count as a meal or not!

I can't believe Marlene = Kelly. The southern accent and the face seems totally different. Like someone said the Big Salad episode with George's gf looks exactly like the Manure episode waitress from Monks, at least moreso than Marlene.

The transcript for "The Soup" needs to be corrected. It says "nure" where it should say "newer." (The TV closed-captioning makes the same mistake.)

When George breaks "manure" down into two parts, he's using the homophone "newer" in place of the true second syllable, "nure." "It's 'newer,' which is good. And a 'ma' in front of it. 'Ma'-'newer'..."

"...'nure,' which is good..." makes no sense.

"Newer" is better because it's a word. On top of which, except for antiques and historical buildings, newer is usually better than older, staler, petrified, etc.

George says, "... 'newer,' which is good..." My pitch would be that "nure" can't be bad or good, because it isn't anything, because it isn't a word. But "newer" as a "good" makes sense, because newer clothes can be better than older clothes, newer cars and TVs better than older ones.

Last year I saw a production of George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion at Minneapolis Minnesota's Guthrie Theatre. In it, the actor playing Simon in this episode played one of the lead roles as the pompous Professor Henry Higgins, while the role of Eliza Doolittle's father was played by the actor who plays Dan the high talker in an earlier episode.

Elaine: (reiterating the question) Did he crumble, any crackers in it?

Jerry: As a mater of fact, he did.

Elaine: Oh, well. Crackers in a bowl. That -- That could be a meal.
