Seinfeld – Season 5 – Episode 5 – The Bris
Seinfeld The Bris is the 5th episode of the Seinfeld season 5 and the 69th overall the Seinfeld series and it was aired on October 14, 1993.
In the Seinfeld episode The Bris, Jerry, Elaine, George, and Kramer go to the hospital to meet friends who have just had a baby. At the hospital, George gets a fortunate parking spot right in front of the hospital, which becomes unfortunate when a mental patient at the hospital suicidally jumps from the roof and lands on it. Later, George attempts to get the hospital to pay for the car’s damages, but is rejected due to his callousness of caring more about the car instead of the patient’s death. Kramer, having directed the mental patient to the roof without realizing his intention, stumbles into the wrong room at the hospital and becomes convinced that he has seen a “pigman”, an encounter he quickly develops into part of a conspiracy theory concerning the government and genetic mutation, claiming, “The government’s been experimenting with pig-men since the ’50s!” When George thinks there should be pigmen walking around, Jerry tells George that there is always some “group of perverts that’s attracted to it: ‘Ooh, that little tail really turns me on.'”
Jerry and Elaine become nervous about the religious duties they must perform when they agree to become godparents to the newborn baby arrives. Kramer, disturbed by the concept of the bris, attempts to stop it. As the circumcision gets under way, the mohel cuts Jerry’s finger; Jerry is accused of flinching, in which Jerry calls the mohel “Butcher Boy” in retaliation. The four go to the hospital, where Jerry’s finger is stitched up. Kramer finds the “pigman” (whom he later discovers is actually “just a fat little mental patient”) and “liberates” him from the hospital. The “pigman” steals George’s car, which was again conveniently parked.
