Here, finally, are the scripts of the first two s.
Although Castle Rock Entertainment's Glenn Padnick thought Jerry Seinfeld was too generous, showcasing his co-stars' comedic talent became a trademark throughout the series.
This episode wasn't filmed because the content was deemed unacceptable, and was replaced by the episode " The Phone Message ". In the beginning of this episode, Jerry clears up the continuity error over George's real estate job.
Also at this time, the use of Jerry's stand-up act slowly declined, and the stand-up segment in the middle of Seinfeld episodes was cut. Much publicity followed the controversial episode, " The Contest ", an Emmy Award -winning episode written by co-creator Larry David, whose subject matter was considered inappropriate for prime time network TV.
To circumvent this taboo, the word " masturbation " was never used in the script, instead substituted for by a variety of oblique references. Cheers reruns that spring. Season five was an even bigger ratings-hit, consisting of popular episodes, such as " The Puffy Shirt " in which Jerry feels embarrassed wearing a "pirate" shirt on The Today Show ,  " The Non-Fat Yogurt " featuring Rudy Giuliani , the Republican then-mayor-elect of New York,  and " The Opposite " in which George, doing the opposite of what his instincts tell him he should do, lands a job with the New York Yankees and Elaine leaves "Pendant Publishing" because of a comedy of errors that lead to its demise.
Another story arc has George returning to live with his parents. In the midst of the story arc, Kramer creates and promotes his coffee table book. Seinfeld was nominated for the same award every year for its entire run but always lost to Frasier, which went on to win a record thirty-nine Emmy Awards in its eleven-season run.
The series remained well-regarded and produced some of its most famous episodes, such as " The Beard " in which Jerry is put through a lie detector test to make him admit that he watched Melrose Place ,  " The Switch " in which Kramer's mom, Babs, reveals that his first name is Cosmo,  and " The Understudy " in which Elaine meets J.
Peterman for the first time. This was the first season in which Seinfeld reached No. The use of Jerry's stand-up act declined with the end stand-up segment no longer appearing, as the storylines for all four characters grew denser.
In season seven, a story arc involved George getting engaged to his ex-girlfriend, Susan Ross, after the pilot Jerry proved unsuccessful. In it, George spends most of the season regretting and trying to get out of the engagement. Along with the regular half-hour episodes, two notable one-hour episodes were " The Cadillac " in which George plans to date award-winning actor Marisa Tomei  and " The Bottle Deposit " with Elaine and Sue Ellen participating in a bidding war to download JFK's golf clubs in an auction.
Larry David left at the end of season seven, although he continued to voice Steinbrenner, so Seinfeld assumed David's duties as showrunner , and, under the direction of a new writing staff, Seinfeld became a faster-paced show. The show no longer contained extracts of Jerry performing stand-up comedy—Jerry had no time or energy for this with his new responsibilities—and storylines occasionally delved into fantasy and broad humor.
For example, in " The Bizarro Jerry ", Elaine is torn between exact opposites of her friends and Jerry dates a woman who has the now-famed "man hands". Despite the enormous popularity and willingness of the cast to return for a tenth season, Seinfeld decided to end the show after season nine, believing he would thereby be able to ensure the show would maintain its quality and go out on top.
Jerry Seinfeld defused the protestors by not letting this episode continue in syndication, as revealed in "Inside Look" on DVD. Jerry Seinfeld was featured on the cover of Time magazine's first issue of Before the finale, a forty-five-minute retrospective clip show, " The Chronicle ", was aired.
The retrospective was expanded to an hour after the original airing and aired again on NBC as an hour-long episode, and has since aired in syndication. It was the first episode since the finale of season seven, " The Invitations ", to feature opening and closing stand-up comedy acts by Jerry Seinfeld.
