The script for the unmade episode of SEINFELD has been leaked, and a shocking discarded line is revealed

Seinfeld was a series that always liked to push the boundaries. The sitcom was openly about sex, contraception, masturbation and they brazenly killed George’s girlfriend by making her lick poisoned envelopes in the episode “The Invitations”.

It was a show about nothing that treated every taboo as an everyday occurrence, and while you might think there was no topic too dark, there was a previously announced plot that never saw the light of day.

In 2022, George actor Jason Alexander he auctioned off his copy of the script for an undisclosed sum, which led to the discovery of photocopies on eBay worth several thousand dollars.

Eventually, someone got a copy for $800 and generously threw the script online for all fans to check out.

The script for the unmade season 2 episode, titled “The Bet”, featured a subplot following Elaine wanting to get a gun to protect herself around New York City. Jerry was adamantly against it, which led to an argument in the car that went like this:

Jerry: George…Annie Oakley…is it hot in here or are you just packing?

Elaine: A bullet to the brain should lower your body temperature considerably.

Jerry: I imagine that would provide some cross ventilation. Can you give me the Kennedy? In here (pointing to the back of the neck) and out here (pointing to the Adam’s apple)?

Elaine: Maybe I’ll just take a little bit away from the beginning.

Jerry: Aah, the Lincoln.

That would have been really tacky. But the creator of Seinfeld Larry David is known for making the most embarrassing and dark plots comedic.

It turned out that the actress Elaine Julia Louis-Dreyfus he immediately objected to this script and the episode was shelved. But it was probably best for the show in its second season to err on the side of caution, as it’s become a classic fan favorite.
