* In "The Red Dot", George has sex with a cleaning woman on his desk and when he doesn't pursue a relationship with her and gives her a defective sweater, she reports him to their boss and has him fired. But if having sex in the workplace was a fireable offense then shouldn't she have gotten fired too?

*** Perhaps the prosecution thought him too unhinged and unpleasant to be an effective witness.

** Pretty much. It begs another question, though: Why was Newman never brought to the stand? Surely he could've dished some dirt about Jerry and the gang.

* Hardly the biggest issue with the finale, but why is Newman so jubilant at the verdict? I guess his hatred of Jerry counterbalances his friendship with Kramer, attraction to Elaine and relatively neutral attitude toward George.

** It wasn't so much the concept of masturbation that Marla found offensive; it was that Jerry and his friends were betting on how long they could go without doing it, which implies that they do it a ''lot''. Marla probably thought this preoccupation with sex made Jerry and the gang seem like deviants, so for someone so shy about sex, this creeped her out. Plus, Jerry didn't exactly help his explanation by saying [[ItMakesSenseInContext the contest started with "George and his mother".]]

** I think most women want to be with an experienced man on bed who knows by heart what he's doing, having a man-child reading notes may not be offensive but certainly will shock a lot of women.

* In "The Fusilli Jerry", why was George's girlfriend so offended by the fact George had notes on his hand for performing a sexual move? I mean, she said after sex she really enjoyed it. What's the big deal?

* Why was Marla so disgusted by the titular concept of "The Contest?" Wouldn't a thirty-something virgin have an inimical response to masturbation, if anything? Or was she so pro-masturbation that she was disgusted by the lack thereof? Either way, it barely seems like enough to leave in a huff over.

* Why was Marla so disgusted by the titular concept of "The Contest?" Wouldn't a thirty-something virgin have an inimical response to masturbation, if anything? and welcome abstinence from it? Or was she so pro-masturbation that she was disgusted by the lack thereof? Either way, it barely seems like enough to leave in a huff over.

**Furthermore, it's brought up in "The Finale" as means to shock the small town jury. Again, wouldn't they be appeased by this knowledge? Even if just the mere THOUGHT of a character discussing masturbation at all was enough to upset them, it still seems like a small offense. Perhaps this was RuleOfFunny alone, but it's always bugged me.

** She doesn't understand why they won't step outside the maximum area that they deliver food to. This is positively infuriating to her, and she refuses to give up before she succeeds in making them deliver.



**** [[InferredHolocaust That would mean everyone else in the courtroom is dead.]] [[FridgeHorror What killed all of these different people, all over and outside of New York City, all at once?]]



** Because her father's just an innocent, confused old man. It's not his fault that he destroyed George's car some how. In her opinion, anyhow.



* Is anyone else besides me just sick and tired of the way ''Seinfeld'' on TV keeps getting cropped, recropped, squished, requished, letterbox, pillarbox, etc... ''why'' do they keep doing that? Why can't they just leave the show alone?!

**Changing television formats, I would assume.

** George was also spotting dimes from across the room, he wasn't certain what to think.
