List of Seinfeld episodes

"The Pitch" is the 43rd episode of the sitcom Seinfeld. It is the third episode of the fourth season. It aired on September 16, 1992.

Plot

NBC executives ask Jerry to come up with an idea for a TV series. George decides he can be a sitcom writer and comes up with it being "a show about nothing." Kramer trades a radar detector for a helmet, and later Newman receives a speeding ticket.

While waiting to meet the NBC executives, George and Jerry meet "Crazy" Joe Davola, a writer and "a total nut" who goes to the same therapist as Elaine. Jerry, searching for conversation, mentions Kramer's party, to which Joe was not invited. While discussing the disaster of the meeting with NBC, George focuses on starting a relationship with the female executive, Susan Ross. Kramer drinks spoiled milk and vomits on her. The helmet saves Kramer from an attack by "Crazy" Joe Davola. This attack leaves him suffering of hemispatial neglect (forgets to dress half of his body properly, forgets to shave half his face, etc). While all this is occurring, Elaine is in Europe with her therapist.

Trivia

  • In syndication, this episode doesn't feature Jerry's stand-up routine and also uses Season 3's logo at the beginning, as is the same with The Ticket, The Cheever Letters, and The Virgin
  • Both this and The Ticket were originally broadcasted as a one-hour episode, but are shown separately in syndication.
  • The primary storyline about Jerry and George co-creating the show Jerry was a tongue-in-cheek homage to the process that Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David experienced when co-creating the show Seinfeld. In the Season 4 DVD extra documentary called "The Breakthrough Season," Jason Alexander and Castle Rock executive Glenn Padnick discussed their initial skepticism about using this idea in not only one episode but as an arc for an entire season. Jason Alexander found it to be "insane" and "self-aggrandized." Glenn Padnick described the arc about the Jerry show as "inside baseball on a show that most people didn't know even existed."
