Seinfeld – Season 2 – Episode 6 – The Statue
Seinfeld The Statue is the 6th episode of the Seinfeld season 2 and the 11th overall the Seinfeld series and it was aired on April 4, 1991.
In the Seinfeld Episode The Statue, Jerry inherits some old possessions of his grandfather Irving. Among them is a statue that looks just like one George’s family had, until George broke it. Jerry promises that George can have it, but leaves it in his apartment for a few days. Kramer takes a few of Irving’s old clothes, including a hat which he believes makes him look like Joe Friday of Dragnet. Elaine persuades Jerry to have his apartment cleaned by her client Rava’s boyfriend Ray. Jerry is very impressed by the quality of the cleaning; but when he and Elaine visit Rava, Jerry notices a statue with a vivid similarity to the one he inherited, and believes Ray stole it.
Jerry, Elaine, George and Kramer discuss the situation and Kramer urges Jerry to do something about it, but Elaine argues that Rava will no longer let her edit her book if Jerry does this. Jerry calls Ray and has lunch with him, while George sits in the next booth and eavesdrops on their conversation. Jerry and George asks him about the statue, but Ray gets offended and leaves when he hears their opinion. Elaine and Rava get into an argument about Jerry’s accusation, and Elaine is no longer allowed to edit Rava’s book. Without notifying anybody, Kramer dresses up in Irving’s old clothes and goes to Ray’s apartment, pretending to be a cop, and recovers the statue, despite Ray’s protests. Kramer returns the statue to a grateful George. But while George is holding the statue, Kramer gives him a friendly pat on the back, causing George to drop the statue, which breaks when it hits the floor.
