5 corrected entries in season 6

The Soup - S6-E7

Corrected entry: In the last scene, Newman tells Jerry that The Soup Nazi is going out of business. When Jerry asks where Newman is going, Newman replies that The Soup Nazi is giving away what's left and Newman is running home to get a big pot. He then runs to the left of the screen. You then see Jerry silently decide to do the same thing, but he runs off to the right of the screen. Jerry and Newman live in the same building; they wouldn't run in different directions to go to the same place.

Correction: True, but we can't be sure that Jerry runs home. It is possible he did not have any pots/containers big enough, and ran to borrow one from a friend, or maybe even buy a new one. Or he ran to The Soup Nazi straight away, hoping to beat the rush.


The Label Maker - S6-E12

Corrected entry: In the episode where Jerry is going to the Superbowl, when he's going to sit down he says his seat is seat 4 and counts over to find his seat (and also to find Newman there). But the only empty seat in the row he's going down is the third seat. If his seat were the fourth, then Newman would have been sitting in his seat, so they both should be over one seat.

Correction: Not really a mistake. The tickets were a pair (seats 3 and 4), and Newman could have just been sitting in Jerry's seat, unsure who was taking the other ticket.


The Doorman - S6-E18

Corrected entry: Jerry and Elaine are held liable for The Couch that was stolen from the lobby of Mr. Pitt's apartment building because Jerry, who agreed to cover for the building's doorman while he ran out to get a beer, left his post at Elaine's behest during which time The Couch was stolen. Since Jerry was not actually employed by the building, he was under no obligation to continue covering The Doorman's post and therefore could not legally be held liable for the theft.

Correction: And if he refused to do anything about The Couch and the company tried to sue him or press charges, the courts may rule he had no legal obligations (although they would argue Jerry took a legal obligation to watch the lobby when he signed for The Package). However, that's not what happened. Elaine says they're being held accountable for The Couch and instead of reimbursing them The Money or fighting it, they simply give away a pee-stained couch Jerry had already given to George and that George wanted to get rid of.


The Scofflaw - S6-E13

Corrected entry: When the cop is telling Kramer about his history with The Scofflaw, he remarks, 'Mr. Kramer, that day was yesterday.' However he never actually refers to a specific day in the entire discussion. The line makes no sense.

Correction: The cop was telling a story about his "white whale" - a Dodge Diplomat he ticketed 16 years ago that had been avoiding paying its fines. He doesn't have to directly refer to a particular day, because Kramer understood he was talking about an earlier scene the previous day (when he inadvertently distracted him from identifying the car's driver).

The Face Painter - S6-E23

Corrected entry: Puddy says he was raised in New Jersey, and has been a Devils fan "since I was a kid." The Devils didn't move to New Jersey from Colorado until 1982, when Puddy would have already been a young adult.

Correction: That doesn't mean he wasn't a fan while they were in Colorado. I know lots of kids who like other cities' teams; it doesn't matter where you grow up.


The Devils were known as the Colorado Rockies during their time in Denver, which only runs back to 1976 anyway. It would be extremely unlikely for Puddy to have been a fan of a team in Denver in the late 70s in New Jersey.

The Hot Tub - S7-E5

Plot hole: When Elaine is searching for Jean Paul in the streets, one of her verbal flashbacks is of Jean Paul saying, "I trust Elaine, she is my friend." However, Jean Paul made this remark to Jerry, and Elaine was not there to hear it. How could she have a flashback of it?

The Robbery - S1-E2

Trivia: Michael Richards invented his patented Kramer entrance in this episode on accident. He missed his cue and thought he would make up for lost time.

The Suicide - S3-E15

Question: When George and Elaine go to see the psychic, the psychic tells George that she sees a Pauline. George gasps and says that his brother once impregnated a woman named Pauline. Since when does George have a brother? Was this brother shown or mentioned in any other episode?

Chosen answer: George does mention his brother in the episode "The Parking Space". They actually really never mention anything that contradicts the fact he had a brother though, it just isn't mentioned.
