Up here, I'm Already Gone

Whoa, it's like a ghost town in here. Can almost hear the tumbleweeds rolling by. Readership is down as well as sign-ups, so I do apologize. Why should any one visit when I haven't posted in almost a month. But you see, I've been quite busy as I am gearing up to travel across the country to start an internship in Los Angeles. Yes, must like Kramer, I am leaving the East Coast with stars in my eyes. So in honor of that, today's sneak peeks will all revolve around those episodes.

Los Angeles City in California, AKA L.A., the coast, La-la land; Kramer develops the acting bug and heads to L.A. where he appears on an episode of Murphy Brown (39)

  • Jerry is given two plane tickets by the Tonight Show to fly to L.A., so he takes George with him and they try to track down Kramer (40)
  • Once they find Kramer, Jerry and George asks Kramer what he is going to do now, after being falsely accused of being a serial killer; Kramer replies, “Do? Do? Hey, I’m doing what I do. You know, I’ve always done what I do. I’m doing what I do. The way I’ve always done it, and the way I’ll always do it.” George then asks, “Kramer, what the hell are you talking about?” Kramer states, “Well, what do you want me to say? That things haven’t worked out the way that I’ve planned? That I’m struggling, barely able to keep my head above water? That L.A.’s a cold place even in the middle of summer? That it’s a lonely place even when you’re stuck in traffic on the Hollywood freeway? That I’m no better than the screenwriter driving a cab, the starlet turning tricks, the producer in a house he can’t afford? Is that what you want me to say?” George quips, “Yeah, I’d like to hear that.” Jerry agrees; Kramer tells them, “Well, I’m not saying that! You know, things are going pretty well for me here. I met a girl.” Jerry reminds him, “Kramer, she was murdered.” Kramer replies, “Yeah, well, you know, I wasn’t looking for a long-term relationship. I was on TV.” George reminds him, “As a suspect in a serial killing.” Kramer replies, “Okay, yeah, all right. You guys gotta put a negative spin on everything.” Jerry and George say goodbye and a few days later, while in Jerry’s apartment, they watch as Kramer enters, takes some food and goes back to his apartment (41)
  • After hearing Jerry say, “You know, I do kind of wonder what fake breasts feel like,” Kramer replies, “Well, I know what they feel like.” Jerry asks, “You? How do you know?” and Kramer explains, “Well, I lived in Los Angeles for three months.” Elaine then asks, “I thought you hated Los Angeles,” and Kramer says, “No, I do. Just miss the warm weather, you know? Jeez. Oh, man. I wish I could get away.” Jerry quips, “Real busy now, down at the office?” Bewildered, Kramer replies, “No. Huh?” (57)
California State where Albert Pepper’s daughter, Wanda, lives (26)
  • Kramer informs George that he has got the acting bug and that he is going to California; George can’t believe it and asks, “You’re not really going to California, are you?” and Kramer, pointing to his head, replies, “Up here, I’m already gone.” He does leave and goes cross-country by hippie van, motorcycle and 18-wheeler (39)
  • While in California, Kramer stays at the Las Palmas Hotel in Los Angeles and pursues his acting career; however, eventually he is mistaken for the Smog Strangler, a serial killer, and is arrested and placed in jail; when Jerry and George come to visit, Kramer says he is staying, but a few days later, he unexpectedly shows up back in New York (40, 41)
  • When Elaine arrives back from her European vacation, she says to Kramer, “I thought you were in California.” He replies, “Well, I came back for you,” and she playfully shoves him and says, “Oh, shut up.” (43)

Well, that's all for now. Again, I apologize for the long absence but I do appreciate everyone who kept visiting in the hopes that I would get my act together and post something.
