Del Boca Vista

DEL BOCA VISTA (NOT REAL)

“Where living has no limits”
The second home of Jerry’s parents, Morty and Helen, from Seasons Seven until the end of the series, and very temporary home of George’s parents, in a retirement community in Florida. Not a real location, but based on Florida retirement communities like Boca Raton, Deerfield Beach, etc.

FEATURED EPISODES

The Shower Head
Jerry mentions his parents are scheduled to move in here from Pines Of Mar Gables, but are in New York until they’re ready. George convinces his parents to move there as well, but they decide to stay, since they cannot bear being away from George.

The Foundation
Jerry warns Morty not to eat anything he caught in the pond in front of their condo…before quickly telling him he’s no longer engaged to Jeannie.

The Little Jerry
Jerry’s parents call him, worried about money, and send him $50 because his check bounced at Marcellino’s bodega.

The Money
Frank and Estelle buy a condo at Del Boca Vista, since Queens is too “low-rent” for them…but quickly decide to return to Queens after seeing a “bum” (actually Jerry) sleeping in a car. Helen and Morty eventually leave Del Boca Vista for a trailer (“its too much house”), since they want to save their money to still support Jerry.

The English Patient
Jerry visits his parents and helps them move their things back into Del Boca Vista. Jerry gets to meet the Mandelbaum clan, who blame Jerry for thinking he’s better than them (and subsequently putting all of them in the hospital).

The Blood
Helen and Morty explain to Jerry that to maintain their health, they joined a program where they walk around their block 3 times a week (and every morning, Morty eats a plum). They later call after hearing from Kramer that Jerry was in the hospital.

The Wizard
Kramer retires from “the grind” and moves down to Del Boca Vista, eventually running for condo president. Jerry visits his parents, and grudgingly tries helping his father install a puppet regime with Kramer in charge, as Morty cannot run for President himself, but the fake Wizards (the “Willards” from Bob Sacamano Sr.) bring down the campaign.

The Bookstore
Talking to his parents about Uncle Leo, Jerry discovers that Leo has prior criminal charges, and could actually serve time in prison for theft.

The Finale
Jerry tells Helen and Morty the show “Jerry” was picked up by NBC, and Morty reveals all he watches on television is “Xena: Warrior Princess.”

FEATURED EPISODES

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.”

The Statue

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 Pen
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.”

The Outing
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!”

The Pilot
Jerry’s parents are seen watching the pilot at home, with Helen once again asking “how could anybody not like him?”

The Wife
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.

The Secretary
Jerry mentions to Willy that his mother keeps her fur coat in his apartment for when she visits from Florida.

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.

The Doodle
Elaine uses Jerry’s parents address as her own in her interview with Viking Press, in order to get a free stay at the Plaza Hotel.

The Cadillac
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.

The Money
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.

The Wizard
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.”
