The Reason Everyone Hangs Out at Jerry's Apartment

Have you ever wondered why everyone on Seinfeld was always hanging out at Jerry's apartment? Why did the main characters always seem to be playing catch up with each other's lives in every episode? This fan theory, from Redditor hotdoggstyle, may just give you the answer you've been looking for:

"As a somewhat successful comedian, Jerry is constantly on the road touring, appearing on various late night talk shows, and is more than likely out of town for weeks at a time. His closest friends know his schedule, so when he's in town they know exactly where to find him and don't mind popping in because they haven't seen him for some time."

In the episode "The Frogger" Kramer alerts Jerry and Elaine to a serial killer operating in New York under the moniker "The Lopper." Apparently, he is killing people wholook like Jerry. As theorized, some people believe that The Lopper could have been Jerry's old enemy, Crazy Joe Davola.

"The last time we see Joe Davola is in the "The Pilot" when he tries to attack Jerry in the TV studio. We never find out what happened to him. Perhaps he was arrested for his attempted assault on Jerry and sent to prison. There, Joe became increasingly angry and hostile towards Jerry. When he got out of prison, he hated Jerry so much that he started beheading anyone who looked like him."

Kramer Was a Pot Smoking Drug Dealer

While most Seinfeld fans believe Kramer never held a job, this theory states the opposite: Kramer was secretly a drug dealer and possibly an addict. This could explain how he affords an apartment in Manhattan.

Wondering who's supplying his stuff? Dorkly has a theory for that: "Kramer would need a supplier, but we already know his hook-up: Bob Sacamano, the mysterious friend of his that goes unseen for the entire series."

Jerry Lied About George's Frogger High Score Being Lost

In "The Frogger" Jerry and George revisit a pizza parlor/childhood hangout and discover that George miraculously, still holds the high score on the Frogger arcade game in the parlor. In an effort to hang on to one of his only life accomplishments, George buys the machine, but not before Jerry tells him that his score will be lost if the game is unplugged.

However, Reddit user Nathan Gatten is suspicious of Jerry's motives here:

"If arcade machines lose their data simply by being without power, then how the heck did it hold Georges high score for about fifteen years? New York has went through a series of blackouts since then, and no business would leave the machine running when closed.

The thing is, Jerry lied to George so he could see how far he would go to save the frogger machine. And why would he set George in the footsteps of disaster? Simple, for entertainment value. Jerry has done this before, in fact he does this all the time."
