Fridge / Seinfeld

Fridge Brillance
  • The idea of Jerry having a show in Japan isn't entirely far-fetched; his old college buddy even asks, "So, would have done it in Japan, but in English?", to which Jerry says he doesn't know. Japan actually does have a rather large English-speaking community, particularly Okinawa, so it wouldn't be entirely impossible for Jerry and George to do their in-universe show over in Japan.
  • In "The Finale", the officer keeping an eye on the gang in lockup says that the Good Samaritan Law they were arrested for breaking was based on a French law. The gang was on their way to Paris when their plane went down, so even if they had managed to get there the same thing probably would have happened to them. Karma's a bitch.
  • The sub-plot in "The Abstinence" of George becoming more intelligent by forgoing sex and Elaine becoming less intelligent for the same reason makes more sense when you remember the fifth season finale ("The Opposite"). There, the plot was that whenever George gained a success (got a girlfriend, got a new apartment, got a job), Elaine would suffer the opposite failure (broke up with her boyfriend, got evicted, lost her job) due to Jerry being "Even Steven".
  • "The Summer of George" ends when George falls down the stairs. To reiterate, summer ends with fall.
  • "The Bris": Why was the mohel "highly recommended", despite clearly being a nutcase? Because everybody who meets him is so petrified of him that they'll give him good reviews because they're afraid of what he'll do if they don't.
  • There are complaints over "The Finale" that partly stem from the fact that the entire trial for the gang was a farce, but consider the following: Jerry's show had a pilot with questionable writing regarding the law and a man being sentenced to be a butler (a point lampshaded several times), and the entire trial happens due to an event that takes place because of the show being picked up.

Fridge Horror
  • In one episode, Elaine gets bitten by a dog, and she fears she may have gotten rabies. After her doctor, who doesn't understand much english, cleans her arm off, Elaine asks him if she needs a rabies shot. The doctor thinks she's asking if she was shot by a gun ("Woof! Woof! Not, Bang! Bang!"). Elaine does get a rabies shot later in the episode, but only after showing symptoms of rabies! Okay, so this doctor who speaks poor english.... how many other patients has he misdiagnosed, or not properly treated due to not understanding certain questions?
    • Another one involving Elaine and doctors. In "The Package" Elaine has difficulty getting her doctors to treat a rash she has all because she has a notice in her file that she's "difficult". A notice that stemmed from her simply not wanting to wear a hospital gown. Subsequently, Elaine tries to be friendlier and easier to work with to get her rash treated, but every doctor she sees brushes her off, or immediately dismisses her the second they see her file and see the notice that she's difficult. Watching this episode it's not hard to see that these doctors are merely looking for ways to not treat a patient, not do any actual work, and still get paid. Elaine should have sued their asses.
  • George is a moron and an amoral schemer, but man does his life SUCK. Especially in regards to how his relationship with Susan's parents soured. As a matter of fact, in one part of the series finale, Mr. Ross was shown buying a handgun. Yes, you saw that right. Susan's parents dislike George to the point of wishing death on him. To be fair, though, you can't blame them for missing their daughter.
  • Speaking of George. . .in an episode where he sleeps with a married woman, the woman's husband declares his intent to "sew his ass to his face, break all his joints and reattach them backwards", etc. One wonders what kind of treatment his poor wife was in for when she returned home from their tryst.

Fridge Logic
  • A rare in-show example has Jerry remembering the name of the woman he is sleeping with.
