* In "The Old Man", Sid Fields's son berates Kramer and Newman for trying to sell his dad's records, claiming they're extremely valuable. Two things: 1) Sid flat out gave Jerry permission for Kramer and Newman to take the records, dismissing them as "garbage". And 2) What business is it of Sid's son what happens to his records? Sid's an adult, he can make his own decisions.

* What is the Soup Nazi's ethnic background? In the original episode, he is offended when someone speaks Spanish in his line, yet in the finale, we learn that after Elaine ruined his business, he returned to...Argentina. (??) His name ("Yev Kassem"), revealed in the finale, sounds more Middle Eastern (Lebanese? Palestinian?) to me. Then again, if he is literally a Soup ''Nazi,'' taking refuge in Argentina makes perfect sense!

** I've been in many "noisy neighbor" situations in my life, and I've learned that most people are either (a) genuinely not bothered by stray noises, (b) annoyed by it, but not willing to confront the source for fear of reprisal, or (c) bothered by it, but never complain because they actually believe that they have a "right" to make whatever noise they want because they pay rent, too. (Please note: no, they don't. There's no constitutional "right" to annoy your neighbors. It's called "Disturbing the Peace.")

* 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.

to:

** 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".]]
