"Seinfeld" The Marine Biologist (TV Episode 1994) Poster

(TV Series)

(1994)

Trivia

The audience response to the end of George's (Jason Alexander) story is regarded by many as one of the longest sustained laughs by the "Seinfeld" studio audience in the show's history, rivaled only by the response to Kramer's (Michael Richards) line "I'm out" from Season 4's Seinfeld: The Contest (1992).

George's (Jason Alexander) final monologue was not in the original script. Larry David came up with the idea while the episode was being filmed and It was added as a result of a late-night rewrite the night before shooting and therefore no time to rehearse was available. Jason Alexander quickly memorized the monologue so rehearsal wasn't necessary and only one take was filmed. Correction: More than one take of this monologue was filmed. Elaine's hand is not against her head right after George says, "Easy big fella!" then they immediately cut to another camera angle and her hand is against her head. So they filmed at least two takes. You can also see Julia Louis-Dreyfus trying not to laugh after Alexander says, "Easy big fella." This is probably why they had to do a second take because Dreyfus was known to break into laughter quite a bit during recordings.

A CGI whale was originally made by the production crew but in the end it was decided it would be more humorous if George (Jason Alexander) told the story.

Prior to the scene where Kramer almost hits Elaine in the head with his golf bag, Michael Richards (Kramer) reassured Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Elaine) that he had never physically harmed anyone doing anything like this. Unfortunately though, he accidentally hit her right in the eye which caused a cut and a bruise. To make matters worse, she was also battling a bad fever that night.
