PINES OF MAR GABLES (NOT REAL)
First home of Jerry’s parents, Morty and Helen, in a retirement community in Florida, from Seasons One through Seven. Not a real location, but based on Florida retirement communities like Boca Raton, Deerfield Beach, etc.
“The Pony Remark”
Jerry mentions in his opening monologue that his parents live in Florida, not because they want to, but because “they’re in their sixties, and that’s the law.” Morty and Helen fly in from Pines Of Mar Gables to visit Manya. Morty: “she made me fly all the way from Florida for this, then she criticizes my jacket.”
Jerry mentions he was going to send his grandfather’s things to his parents in Florida, but they didn’t want it. Jerry later tells Rava his mother is in Florida, when she tells how her mother abandoned her family as a child.
“The Chinese Restaurant”
Jerry mentions that his aunt will call his mother in Florida, upon realizing Jerry didn’t say hello to a mutual friend he didn’t recognize.
The site of the entire episode. Jerry and Elaine stay with Morty and Helen, experiencing overheating, upside-down space pens, foldout bed bars, chiropractors and dinner checks for $19.45. Jerry also mentions his parents in his opening monologue, noting how old people do not wear bathing suits, they wear “trunks.”
Jerry’s parents discover the article claiming he and George are a couple, and Morty blames Helen for his supposed sexuality: “it was those damn culottes you made him wear when he was 5!”
Jerry’s parents are seen watching the pilot at home, with Helen once again asking “how could anybody not like him?”
Jerry’s parents call when they hear from Uncle Leo that Jerry got fake-married.
Morty calls Jack Klompus to have him courier his raincoats overnight. The Seinfeld’s condo is later robbed upon their return, since Jack never fixed the broken window to their garage he had to break to get inside.
Jerry mentions to Willy that his mother keeps her fur coat in his apartment for when she visits from Florida.
“The Kiss Hello”
Morty calculates that Uncle Leo owes Helen $663.45, with 5% interest compounded quarterly from track winnings he was given by their father as a child.
Jerry surprises his parents by giving his father a Cadillac, which ultimately leads to Morty’s downfall and impeachment as condo board President due to a fraud scandal, forcing Morty and Helen to leave the complex for Del Boca Vista.
Jerry flies back to Florida to buy his car back from Jack Klompus. Jerry later maxes out his credit cards by cleaning up the car (after Jack drives it into a swamp), and ends up sleeping in it, since Jack won’t let him stay in his condo.
Helen mentions that Morty can’t run for condo president in Del Boca Vista, as he was impeached once before…to which Morty says he in fact only “resigned.”
