George Costanza: It became very clear to me sitting out there today that every decision I've made in my entire life has been wrong. My life is the complete opposite of everything I want it to be. Every instinct I have, in every aspect of life, be it something to wear, something to eat - it's all been wrong.
This is the episode where George's parents make their debut and when it originally aired, another actor played the part of George's father. When the role was recast with Jerry Stiller, all the scenes in this episode were re-shot. See more...

Continuity: The exterior shot they use when establishing Monk's cafe is completely different than what is inside in the cafe. First the outside has neon lights with just RESTAURANT. The inside of the cafe, the menus, windows and door all have Monk's cafe logo on them. Secondly the door should be in the middle of the restaurant, instead the interior shows it to be to the left of the restaurant and somewhat to the side. Lastly the windows in the exterior shot are extremely large with no writing, logo and curtains pulled to the side. Inside the cafe, the windows are much smaller, with permanent curtains coming halfway up the windows and the rest being blocked by Monk's cafe logo.
Factual error: During the entire series, the view of Jerry's door from the hallway is of a flat wall with the door in line, yet from inside the apartment, not only does the kitchen angle into the hallway, but Jerry's fridge is recessed into the wall. The wall behind it should be blocking the hallway completely.
Continuity: There are inconsistencies regarding how old Jerry and George are. In Season 2's The Heart Attack, George states he is 33 years old. In Season 3's The Stranded - just one year later - Jerry states that he is 36 years old. However, in Season 9's The Butter Shave, it is revealed that they are just four months apart.
Plot hole: In the episode where Kramer decides to start sleeping like a Seal, he's with a girl. He falls asleep on top of her and she seems to think that he's dead. While breathing, your chest expands in such a way that if somebody were laying on top of you, there is no conceivable way that you could think that they are dead.
Revealing: While Jack is leaving the apartment after giving Jerry the pen, you can see they have put a fake background outside the front door. What's more it is not even that realistic. It looks like a forest with a river in the middle. The Seinfeld's Florida apartment is situated amongst many other apartments around it.
