    I loved this episode. It’s one of my personal favourites.

  • Suzi!

    Enjoyed this podcast. My favorite part is when the waitress keeps mispronouncing Jerry’s last name as “Seinfield.” Oh, and on a side note, one year my husband’s fantasy football team was called “The Moops!”

    After listening to this, I am really glad that you guys don’t read out the entire e-mail messages I send out. They sound funny as I am typing them at 2:00 in the morning, but as the week goes on I start to doubt if it was really that funny. It’s really not as funny as I thought. I’d say I’m sorry and I’ll try to make less of a funny attempt and put in more questions, but knowing me I just can’t promise that. Even now I’m writing and deleting horrible jokes for this.

    Does anybody else think the Bubble Boy sounds exactly like Kenny Banya?

    I haven’t seen these episodes since they first aired but I think Rob and Akiva (and the cast) are being too hard on Heidi Swedberg. I don’t know about any of the behind the scenes stuff, but so far I think she is doing great as Susan and I’m picking up on little things that I didn’t notice the first time.

    Like when Kramer comes into the apartment in this episode, she moves her arms to cover her chest – she’s instinctively remembering that he threw up on her. And when the Bubble Boy tells her to take off her top she folds her arms in front of her, covering her breasts.

    I also was confused by Jerry and Akiva thinking Susan was out of line with the affection she was showing George in this episode. They are a new couple, and she is just kissing him and biting his ear. This is really on the low end of the “public displays of affection” scale. Why shouldn’t she be like this with George?

    I also liked how the scene set her and George in Jerry’s apartment at the beginning of the scene listening to Jerry talk about the Bubble Boy. It really felt like she was part of the group.

    Now that I think about it, could Susan be the longest-running non-family guest character? She is introduced in the start of season 4, she appears all this season, reappears when she becomes a lesbian, and once George proposes she’s in most episodes until she dies at the end of season 7. That’s a pretty good run.

    And I don’t think just because her parents own a cabin is an indication that she is rich. People can own a summer cabin and not be millionaires.
