"The Pez Dispenser" is the thirty-first episode of the sitcom "Seinfeld". The episode was the fourteenth episode of the show's third season. It aired on January 15, 1992.

The episode was written by Larry David and was directed by Tom Cherones.


Jerry's PEZ dispenser causes Elaine to laugh loudly at a piano recital given by George's girlfriend. Kramer creates a cologne that smells of the beach. Jerry hosts an intervention for an old friend with a drug problem. Jerry's friend developed a drug problem because Kramer told him to pour Gatorade on Marty Benson's head after winning a softball game. The coach developed pneumonia and died (this is a reference to the late football coach George Allen who died the same way).

George's girlfriend hears Elaine laughing, realizes that it was Elaine who ruined her concert, and walks out on George. Jerry's friend kicks his drug habit, but becomes addicted to PEZ.


* In syndication, this episode doesn't feature Jerry's stand-up comedy routine.
