Recap / Seinfeld S 2 E 1 The Ex Girlfriend

Jerry begins seeing George's ex, Marlene.
  • Characterization Marches On: George complains about having left his books at his ex-girlfriend's house (which he claims to have read). It's established later in the series that George simply does not like to read anything.
    • Freeze-Frame Bonus: On the other hand, George's books are briefly seen on-camera, and they're all self-help books. Which probably are the only reading material George would have on hand.
  • Minor Flaw Major Break Up: Marlene dumps Jerry because she saw his act and didn't think it was funny.
  • Running Gag: Nobody likes the taste of Kramer's cantaloupe.
