The Dog (season 3, episode 4)
written by Larry David, directed by Tom Cherones
original airdate: October 9, 1991
Jerry gets stuck looking after an uncooperative dog for a week. Elaine and George see a movie without Jerry and realize they have nothing in common but Jerry. Jerry and Elaine are not fans of Kramer’s new girlfriend.
Jerry is confined to his apartment after reluctantly agreeing to dog-sit Mr. Polone’s dog, Farfel, which turns out to be more of a wild beast than dog he is responsible for.
George and Elaine visit the coffee shop without Jerry, discovering they have nothing in common except for sharing stories about Jerry.

The site of Kramer’s infamous dumping (“How could I be with someone like you? I couldn’t respect myself!”), then taking back (“Please! I love you! I can’t live without you, I’ll do anything!”), speeches, all done in first person perspective without ever showing Ellen. Thanks Erkan B. for the tip!

Polone claims he was taken here after his hospital visit in Chicago, and thus why he couldn’t claim Farfel. Despite sounding like he is slurring the word “Rockford,” another Illinois city, in fact he is actually saying Rockville, in reference to this renowned facility. Thank you to Seba for the tip!
