** They would get severe burns if they sat out in the sun like Kramer did.

*** It wasn't just bad luck. George's girlfriend Cheryl was a lawyer who tried to keep Babu from being deported. When she find out George and Jerry had been lying to her, she dropped Babu's case, causing him to get deported. Presumably she told Babu exactly why she wouldn't help him anymore, explaning why he blames them for it.

Added DiffLines:

* In "The Engagement", Kramer warns Jerry about getting married, claiming it's like being in prison and you have to fill it with banal small talk. Based on this conversation, are we to assume that Kramer was married himself at one point and speaks from experience?

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

*** Perhaps the prosecution thought him too unhinged and unpleasant to be an effective witness. Not to mention that he was involved in a couple of the cases.

*** Doubtful, the others characters would have reacted accordingly to see such scenario, and they were acting normally around Frank.


Added DiffLines:

** Maybe Kurt was blamed for the aiding, after all, is easier to sentence someone who already has another charge.

** Heidi Swedberg, the actress who played Susan, has pointed out before that Susan came from a very dysfunctional family, including two parents who openly hated each other the same way Frank and Marie did. She points out that while that doesn't ''completely'' answer it, knowing she has that kind of background does make her poor taste slightly more understandable.

Added DiffLines:

* What bothered Sally Weaver about Jerry, hence the way she purposely sabotaged his Charles Grodin appearance in "The Doll"? Was she just being a bully, or was she out for revenge? Second, how does she know Jerry when she was Susan's college roommate????? The hatred only grew two years later in "The Cartoon".

Added DiffLines:

** In all probability the hospital would (or did, off-screen) compensate George for the damage to his car either through an out of court settlement or agreement between their insurer and George's. The point of the scene however was to show how shocked the administrator was at George's callous attitude toward the recently deceased.

Added DiffLines:

* In "The Little Jerry", Kurt is mistaken for George, who had been aiding and abetting Celia, an escaped convict. Kurt is sent to prison for a year for punching the cop who arrested him. But now that they were aware Kurt is not George, shouldn't the cops have gone after George?

** It's quite possible that the woman was emplyed by a cleaning company that is completely seperate to the company George works for. For example, the owners of the buliding hire the cleaning company to clean all floors of the building, while George's company simply rent a floor in said building. That way George and the cleaning lady interact in the same office but have completely different employers.

** Also, non-Jewish troper asking: isn't Hanukkah a relatively minor celebration in the Jewish holiday calendar? IIRC it's kind of been inflated a bit because of its close proximity to Christmas and gentiles assuming it has the same significance. So in that sense it might almost be a RealityIsUnrealistic thing; most of the characters don't make a big deal of it because Jewish people as a whole don't make a big deal of it (or at least not as big a deal as non-Jewish people assume they do).
