S07E08 - The Pool Guy
No: 118 | Season: 7 Episode: 8 | Air Date: 16-Nov-1995 | Production #708
Elaine has tickets for a historical clothing exhibit and realizes that she has no female friends; Jerry suggests that she ask Susan. Kramer suggests that is the wrong move and that George's worlds will collide. Jerry meets his pool guy outside a movie, and then he can't get rid of him. George is worried by Elaine wanting to get to know Susan, then he finds out it was Jerry's idea. Kramer's new phone number is similar to a film information line. When Kramer keeps getting wrong numbers, he begins giving out the information for movie show times a la "Moviefone".
Director and Writers
Director: Andy Ackerman
Writers: David Mandel
George: I have relationship George, but I also have independent George. That's the George you know, the George you grew up with: movie George, coffee shop George, liar George, bawdy George.
Jerry: I love that George.
George: Me too, and he's dying, Jerry! If relationship George walks through that door, he will kill independent George. A George divided against itself cannot stand!
Jerry: What else did you two do?
Elaine: Ah, you know, girl stuff.
Jerry: Flower shows, shopping for pretty bows, and then back to her place strip down to bra and panties for a tickle fight?
Elaine: That's really what you think girls do, isn't it?
Jerry: Yes, I do.
Notes and Trivia
When Kramer is giving movie advice you can see his pasta figures on the shelf behind him.
Danny Hoch refused the role of Ramon. He did not want to contribute to the stereotypical view of Latinos.
This episode was dedicated "In memory of our friend Rick Bolden". Rick was one of the musicians who worked on the Seinfeld theme.
When George says, "A George divided against itself cannot stand!" he is referring to the Bible, the Book of Mark, verse 3:25, "And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand".
