- First mentioned in episode 73 "The Masseuse", when Jerry claims he has not vomited since June 29, 1980. This episode aired November 18, 1993, so the streak lasted about 13 years and 5 months, an amazing feat if you ask anyone.
The Cookie That Ended It
- Four episodes after "The Masseuse", the astounding streak comes to an end in a bakery bathroom in episode 77, "The Dinner Party". After David and Barbara Benedict order the last chocolate babka, Jerry and Elaine have to settle for the "Lesser Babka", Cinnamon Babka. When this is purchased, Jerry also buys a black-and-white cookie. Little did Jerry know that the consumption of this cookie would lead to the untimely death of his Non-Vomit Streak.
The Scene Before the Streak Ends
- Jerry (Takes a bite out of the cookie): Mmm! The thing about eating the black-and-white cookie, Elaine, is you want to get some black and some white in each bite. Nothing mixes better than vanilla and chocolate, and yet somehow racial harmony eludes us. If people would only look to the cookie, all our problems would be solved.
Elaine: Your views on race relations are fascinating. You really should do an op-ed piece for the Times.
Jerry: Mmm, mmm. Look to the cookie, Elaine. Look to the cookie. (Holds up cookie to acknowledge an African-American man eating the same type of cookie)
Later, Jerry ends the streak by rushing to the bathroom and spewing out his glory.
There is a possible inconsistency in the non-vomit streak given that in the episode titled “The Dog”. Elaine responds to George's question "Have you ever seen him throw up?" with gestures that suggest that she has. Elaine has only lived in New York City for 6 years.
