"The Glasses" is the sixty-seventh episode of the hit sitcom "Seinfeld". It was the 3rd episode for the 5th season. It aired on September 30, 1993.


George's eyeglasses are stolen at the Health Club and he needs a new pair. He goes to see Kramer's friend to get a thirty percent discount because Kramer helped him break his addiction to sugar. Elaine is bitten by a dog and becomes afraid of dogs as well as the possibility that she may have rabies. While not wearing his glasses, George thinks he sees Jerry's girlfriend Amy kissing Jerry's cousin Jeffrey, who apparently has a "horse face". Jerry decides to visit Jeffrey to figure out if it's true. Jerry doesn't know what to think of George's uncanny ability to see while "squinting". George finally decides upon a new pair but is distressed to hear that he bought a pair of women's glasses made by Gloria Vanderbilt. George manages to trade his frames with a blind man's uncomfortable ones. With his vision back, he realizes that it was not Amy kissing Jeffrey, but a rather homely mounted policewoman affectionately petting her horse. The episode ends as we see George's glasses right on top of the lockers in the Health Club.


* Kramer: Retail is for suckers.

* Jerry: (About George's lady's frames) I don't know what to tell you, Elton.

Jerry: Who picked these out?
George: I did!
Jerry: They're ladies' glasses! All you need is that little chain around your neck so you can wear 'em while you're playing Canasta.

Kramer: May I have one of those, madam?
George: Madam? What are you calling me madam for?
Kramer: They're ladies' glasses. Now look here, see it's right here: Gloria Vanderbilt Collection.
George: He sold me ladies' glasses!


* George eats Rold Gold pretzels in this episode, a product that actor Jason Alexander went on to do commercials for.
* This is the first episode of Seinfeld written by Tom Gammill and Max Pross.
* In this episode Elaine calls Kramer a "hipster doofus". Kramer was previously called this in the season 4 episode The Handicap Spot and The Movie.
* George planting the dime in Jerry's apartment and later "discovering" it in front of Jerry is a reference to "The Great Escape"
