Seinfeld

The Hot Tub - S7-E5

Plot hole: When Elaine is searching for Jean Paul in the streets, one of her verbal flashbacks is of Jean Paul saying, "I trust Elaine, she is my friend." However, Jean Paul made this remark to Jerry, and Elaine was not there to hear it. How could she have a flashback of it?

The Rye - S7-E11

Plot hole: When George and Jerry are discussing The Rye bread scheme, George says Susan is working late that night, so she won't be around when he sneaks The Rye into the house. But when George reels The Rye in with the fishing pole, Susan is standing there with her parents, wearing her coat. When did she get home? She couldn't have entered through the front door, because Jerry was there tossing The Rye up to George. And since it's a New York City brownstone, there's no backdoor that's accessible. There's no logical explanation for her getting into the house to see George reeling in The Rye.

The Friars Club - S7-E18

Plot hole: In the episode where Kramer decides to start sleeping like a Seal, he's with a girl. He falls asleep on top of her and she seems to think that he's dead. While breathing, your chest expands in such a way that if somebody were laying on top of you, there is no conceivable way that you could think that they are dead.

Jimmy: Oh yeah, Jimmy's ready. Check Jimmy out. Jimmy's got some new moves. [Slips and falls from the water.] Jimmy's down.

Trivia: No matter who the characters in Seinfeld call, they never have to look up the phone number in the phone book. They have the phone numbers to every restaurant, hotel, and business memorised.

More trivia for Seinfeld

Answer: Composer Jonathan Wolff used a synthesizer, although in seasons 7-9, a real bass is used in addition. Wolff also recorded himself making hundreds of mouth noises, pops, and slaps to add to the synthesized bass licks so that each episode has a different theme. The only real "back-story" is Jerry Seinfeld was having trouble coming up with a theme song and talked to a friend who happened to know Wolff. They wanted to avoid that cheesy late 80's sit-com theme song and Wolff came up with what we enjoy now. Jonathan Wolff has also talked about this further in interviews, recently Reed Dunela interviewed him, so for a fuller account of his story; check out "The Wolff of 116th street".
