The Red Dot

I never noticed how little 90s tv shows are released on DVD. Maybe in America, but most aren’t popular enough to be released in Australia. Want to know what’s really popular? Seinfeld. Surprised?

Seinfeld is considered the best sit-com of all time. It’s not my personal favourite but I respect the concept and the creators so much, what I like is besides the point.

Jerry and George attend Elaine’s office party where she is talking to her co-worker/boyfriend. Elaine managers to grab George a job and Jerry places an alcholic drink next Elaine’s sober boyfriend which he chugs down. Now he’s going to “fall off the wagon”!

George should be so grateful to Elaine, and Jerry thinks so too as he wants George to get Elaine a thank you gift at ‘Nautica’. “Do I really have to buy her something?” says George. Why must you be so . . . so . . .

As usual the men argue over little things such as “who doesn’t like cashmere?” and does buying a friend a damaged cashmere (there’s a red dot somewhere) that is marked down from 600 to 80 dollars make you cheap? Would you? Yes I’m asking YOU reader.

Elaine is wondering whether her boyfriend is drinking again. Jerry suggest that if she can smell it then he’s drinking again. “You don’t always smell from a drink,” says Elaine. They ask loopy Kramer to drink and to test if he smells. He takes a sip of Hennigan’s and… nothing Here comes the multi-billion award winning commercial:

“Boy, that Hennigan goes down smooth and afterwards you don’t even smell. That’s right, folks. I just had three shots of Hennigan’s and I don’t even smell. Imagine, you can walk around all drunk all day. That’s Hennigan’s, no-smell, no-tell Scotch.”

Elaine is filled with joy at George’s early Christmas gift, but Kramer notices a red dot. Elaine asks Jerry does he see it and Jerry plays dumb in the worst way I have ever seen, that it even sends Kramer to sleep.

Elaine finds out from Jerry’s expression that George knew about the dot and bought it cause it was cheap but of course both accuse her of accusing them of such terrible things! More lies come out of George’s mouth. I love honesty. I don’t know what I’d do with a pal like George.

Elaine’s ex-boyfriend IS back on the wagon– I mean off! Damn you Jerry for confusing me. When you become an alcoholic after being sober for so long, it’s off the wagon, isn’t it?

George hands the gift to the cleaning woman he is having sex with, and she is delighted, until she notices the red dot. Cleaning woman comes clean to the boss. So long to George and his red dot cashmere sweater!

Happy Holidays Everybody!
