Seinfeld – Season 3 – Episode 10 – The Stranded
Seinfeld The Stranded is the 10th episode of the Seinfeld season 3 and the 27th overall the Seinfeld series and it was aired on November 27, 1991.
The Seinfeld episode The Stranded, begins with Jerry and George at a drug store to purchase medicine where George becomes involved in an altercation with the cashier, accusing her of short-changing him ten dollars. He is removed by the security guard. George gets invited to a party on Long Island and brings Elaine and Jerry with him. Jerry and Elaine have a bad time stuck in boring conversations, and Elaine confronts a woman because of her fur coat. At one point during the party, Elaine does a mock Australian accent from the film A Cry in the Dark and exclaims “Maybe the dingo ate your baby?”
When a co-worker starts coming on to George, he strands Jerry and Elaine at the party, leaving them to wait for a very tardy Kramer. As a sign of gratitude for allowing him and Elaine to wait at his home, Jerry suggests the hosts, Steve and Jenny, stop by his apartment if they are ever in New York.
A week later, to Jerry’s surprise, Steve takes him up on his offer just as Jerry is heading out the door. Jerry allows him to wait in the apartment until his return. However, Kramer stops by and he and Steve have some drinks and laughs. Eventually Steve hires a prostitute to come over to Jerry’s apartment. Jerry and George meet at the drug store where they speak about George’s coworker, whom he slept with after the party. Then, after Jerry picks a medicine, George puts it in his shirt under his jacket as retribution for the short-changing incident before. The security guard catches him and takes him away, presumably to jail.
