List of Seinfeld episodes

"The Truth" is the nineteenth episode of Seinfeld. The episode was the second episode for the show's third season. It aired on September 25, 1991.



George tells his girlfriend, Patrice (played by Valerie Mahaffey), the truth about why he ended their relationship; as a result, she checks herself into the Woodhaven mental institution. Jerry is very upset at this because he is being audited by the IRS and George's girlfriend, who is an accountant, was supposed to help him out. To make things worse, she has all of his tax papers and Jerry needs them back desperately.

It was Kramer who had gotten Jerry into trouble by compelling him to contribute to a fake volcano relief fund. Kramer is also dating Elaine's roommate, Tina, and Elaine complains about the loud tribal music and sexual noises in her apartment. Kramer also walks into Elaine's room and sees her naked.


George comments on turning women to lesbianism, yet in season 4 he says he had never turned one before.

Jerry says, "Those brave Krakatoans, east of Java, who sacrificed so much for so long!" Krakatoa is actually west of Java, a fact noted by many continuity buffs when the movie, Krakatoa, East of Java came out.


George: The truth? You want the truth?... It is your earrings! It is your chopsticks! But it's so much more than that! You're pretentious! You call everybody by their full name! You called my doorman Sammy "Samuel"! But you didn't even say "Samuel", you said it "Samuelle"! Papier-mâché? What is pah-pee-ay mah-shay?
