Simply brilliant writing
16 July 2019 | by clacuraSee all my reviews

More of Seinfeld brilliance in this episode. You can miss viewing for 20 years and still recall the phrases and delivery from the actors. Even the C actor sitting in the barber shop is memorable; "Gino you've outside yourself this time, this is the best haircut I've ever had!"! The classic Seinfeld hook, "Of course..." taking a snippet of life and building an entire episode.

All the peppered phrases; Kramer: I can raise enough money to cure polio/ I'd like to have shoehorn hands George: The Pensky file...it's just removable...his little drum beat w pencils at the desk

What Seinfeld did better than any other TV show is cast guest actors that you remember for 20 years. Every small part is knocked out of the park with character actors, faces you remember...these details pay off like no other show imo. Casting of Enzo is equally brilliant. This actor knocked it out of the park into the street.

Splicing this episode into Edward Scissorhands works to perfection.
