The Movie (season 4, episode 14)

written by Steve Skrovan & Bill Masters & Jon Hayman, directed by Tom Cherones

Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer keep missing each other when they try to meet at the movies. Jerry’s delay is compounded by annoying comedian Pat Buckles.

FEATURED LOCATIONS

Jerry’s Apartment and Monk’s Café are not featured in this episode.

The Improv
Jerry’s timeslot gets bumped, and he then misses the slot altogether at 11:00, where he is replaced again by Pat Buckles. In a deleted scene, Buckles is later shown doing his terrible set about historical figures being stuck in traffic.
