List of Seinfeld episodes

"The Nose Job" is the twenty-sixth episode of Seinfeld. It is the ninth episode of the show's third season. It first aired on November 20, 1991.

The episode was written by Peter Mehlman and was directed by Tom Cherones.


George thinks his girlfriend Audrey (Susan Diol) is perfect, except for one flaw: she has a large nose. During a conversation about beautiful women, Kramer bluntly tells her she needs a nose job. Meanwhile, Jerry is conflicted about his relationship with an actress (Tawny Kitaen), whom he finds beautiful but with whom he has nothing in common. Also, Kramer needs Elaine's help in reacquiring a jacket that supposedly has an attractive power over women.

Episode notes

  • This episode features a scene which was famous among behind-the-scenes Seinfeld lore for being one of the first which Julia Louis-Dreyfus had the hardest time getting through without laughing. The sight of Michael Richards as Kramer stuffing his pipe full of tobacco caused Louis-Dreyfus to continually burst into giggles. Richards was noticeably displeased with her inability to keep a straight face during this scene, insisting that her laughter was throwing off his concentration. Her laughing fits would interrupt the filming of many later scenes throughout the show's run, much to Richards' annoyance.
  • At the end of the episode when George's ex-girlfriend ends up dating Kramer after getting her nose fixed, Jerry jokes, "My nose, my nose, my kingdom for nose." This is an allusion to Shakespeare’s play Richard III, in which the eponymous character speaks the immortal line: “A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse.”[1]
