Seinfeld Question

Recommended Posts

At the end of the episode where Ma & Pa stole Jerry's sneakers, what movie/TV show are they spoofing when they are in the bus at the end? Kramer gets a nose bleed and whines he's falling apart. A Jim Croce song (I think) is in the backgroud.

Wasn't it Midnight Cowboy that was spoofing that Seinfeld episode?

My Seinfeld questions:

How come no one ever noticed that the physical layout of Jerry's apartment and the coffee shop don't line up right?

For example, whenever we see Jerry's hallway, with Kramer's door opposite his, it's a straight hallway. There's like an 8 foot, straight on wall and at the end is Jerry's door. Yet, when Jerry opens the door, there's a kitchen to his left and behind him--right where he was just standing on the outside of the apartment.

Same with the coffee shop. The stock shot of the red-neon sign "Tom's Restaurant" is a flat-front building parallel to the street. There's even a door shown, facing straight out. When we go inside, however, there's an entryway with a door at a right angle--perpendicular to the exterior shot.

Yet, it never bugs anyone that both geographies are wrong. Dozens of years, hundreds of viewings, for most people it's just :rolleyes:

Actually, that's a rather interesting question and there's been a lot of thought given to the explanation.

Different question. In the episode where Sue Ellen is about to get married in India(subplots of George dating Nina-"Reparations!"&Kramer battling FDR), the episode is shown in reverse in short segments. What movie is this modeled? I always thought "Momento", but I think it was released after this episode.

Harold Pinter's play "Betrayal". Episode title is the same and they also named the groom Pinter.

what?
In many episodes, the exterior hallway to Jerry's apartment is shown as, well, a long, straight hallway, and at the end are Jerry and Kramer's doors. I couldn't find a good shot but this one kind of gives you the idea. Anyway, even in that shot, there's no way it lines up with the interior, where the wall bends to accomodate Jerry's kitchen about a foot away from the edge of the door frame. The back of the fridge and the entire kitchen should be in the hallway.

As far as Monks/Tom's Restaurant, the exterior door to the street is parallel to the street itself. In the show, however, the entrance is perpendicular... or, the woman at the counter and the entire back of the diner, including the bathrooms, are out in the street.
