The Postponement

The Postponement

"The Postponement" is the one-hundred and twelfth episode of NBC sitcom Seinfeld, and the 2nd episode of the 7th season. It aired in the U.S. on September 28, 1995.

Plot

Elaine's dog problem is solved by a rabbi in her apartment complex with a cable show. Elaine later confides in the Rabbi about her insecurity about George's engagement to Susan Ross and that George (whom she considered a loser) would marry before she would. The Rabbi later tells several people, including Jerry, about Elaine's insecurity towards George's wedding.

Kramer's involvement in the dognapping worries him. George decides he wants to postpone the engagement until March 21 (Spring Equinox). His first attempt to postpone the wedding leads to Susan becoming hysterical and bursting into tears. Later George gets the idea to be nonchalant about the whole thing after watching a man break up with his girlfriend at Monk's. Intending to try a similar approach he eventually breaks down in tears and begs Susan to postpone the wedding, touched by his show of emotions Susan agrees to postpone the wedding.

Kramer and Jerry go to see Plan 9 from Outer Space at the cinema. Kramer sneaks in gourmet coffee, spills it, and scalds himself; he says he has a case for a lawsuit (an obvious reference to the well known McDonald's coffee case).

The episode ends with Susan and George watching the Rabbi's TV show and the Rabbi recounting the story Elaine told him including a part about George (the Rabbi references both Elaine and George by name) wanting to know if it was still cheating if he paid for a prostitute while still engaged.

Trivia

The film Plan 9 from Outer Space, which Jerry describes as the "worst movie ever made" is the same movie Jerry misses out on in "The Chinese Restaurant" episode in Season 2. He mentions the events of this episode here.
