Seinfeld: The Finale (1)

In part one of the finale, the gang find out that the pilot for Jerry's show has been approved and 13 episodes were ordered. NBC lends the foursome a jet to use before they have to move to California for the show, and they decide to go to Paris. While in the air, Kramer tries to get water out of his ear, but ends up stumbling into cockpit, sending the plane into a dive. The plane has to land, and on the ground, the gang sees a robbery, but don't attempt to help, so they are arrested. Several characters travel to their trial, including Jerry's parents, Peterman, Puddy, Newman, and others.

Episode Quotes
Newman: All right, but hear me and hear me well. The day will come - oh, yes, mark my words, Seinfeld - your day of reckoning is coming, when an evil wind will blow through your little play world and wipe that smug smile off your face! And I will be there, in all my glory, watching, watching as it all comes crumbling down! (Laughs)

Jerry's Monologue: It seems like whenever these office people call you in for a meeting, the whole thing is about the sitting down. I would really like to sit down with you. I think we need to sit down and talk. Why don't you come in, and we'll sit down. Well, sometimes the sitting down doesn't work. People get mad at the sitting.You know, we've been sitting here for I don't know how long. How much longer are we just going to sit here? I'll tell you what I think we should do. I think we should all sleep on it. Maybe we're not getting down low enough. Maybe if we all lie down, then our brains will work.

(As they walk to the plane)
Captain Maddox: Ah, Jerry?
Jerry: Yeah.
Captain Maddox: I'm Captain Maddox this is my co-pilot, Kurt Adams. Ready to go to Paris?
Jerry: All set. We'll just grab the bags.
Captain Maddox: Don't worry about that. We'll take care of them for you.
Jerry: Just keeps on getting better and better.
