He has variously been described as a "short, stocky, slow-witted, bald man" (by Elaine Benes and by Costanza himself), "Lord of the Idiots" (by Costanza himself), and as "the greatest sitcom character of all time."[1][2] He is friends with Jerry, Kramer and Elaine.

Biography

Although not a main focus of the show, various details about George's life are revealed throughout. He was born, and grew up in Queens, New York. He met Jerry Seinfeld in a middle-school locker-room, and they remained friends from that point on. He and Seinfeld attended John F. Kennedy High School, and then they both went on to Queens College. The series starts some years after he graduates. Queens is geographically the largest of the five boroughs of New York City in the United States, and the most ethnically diverse county in the U.S. It is coterminous with Queens County in the State of New York and is located on western Long Island. ...

Characteristics

George is neurotic, self-loathing, and dominated by his parents, Frank and Estelle. He has been best friends with Jerry Seinfeld since their middle school years. Despite being billed at times as "slow witted," George starts out as a moderately intelligent character - in some early episodes almost as a mentor to Jerry - but gets dumber to the point at which he is too lazy to even read a book. Frank Costanza (played by Jerry Stiller) is a fictional character on the US television sitcom Seinfeld (1989-1998). ... Estelle Costanza (played by Estelle Harris) is a fictional character on the US television sitcom Seinfeld (1989-1998). ... For the actor, see Jerry Seinfeld. ...


George exhibits a number of negative character traits, among them stinginess, selfishness, dishonesty, insecurity, and neurosis. Many of these traits form the basis for his involvement in various plots, schemes, and awkward social encounters. Episode plots frequently feature George manufacturing elaborate deceptions at work or in his relationships in order to gain or maintain some small or imagined advantage. He had success in "The Opposite" in which Jerry advises him to do the opposite of his instincts which resulted in him getting a girlfriend and a job with the New York Yankees. Frugality (also known as thrift or thriftiness ) is the practice of acquiring goods and services at minimum cost, achieved via economical restraints or creative measures. ... Selfishness denotes the precedence given in thought or deed to self interests and self concerns, the act of placing ones own needs or desires above the needs or desires of others. ... Dishonesty is a term which in common usage may be defined as the act of being dishonest; to act without honesty; a lack of probity, to cheat, lying or being deliberately deceptive; lacking in integrity; to be knavish, perfidious, corrupt or treacherous; charlatanism or quackery. ...

His relationship with Elaine and Kramer is likely a love/hate relationship. With Elaine, he does get into arguments and in one episode, even though he is scared of her, he sometimes wins the argument, which happened in "The Wife" but they also work together most notably in the episode, "The Cadillac." George and Kramer usually feel awkward with each other but started working together (and against each other) in episodes "The Busboy," "The Stall" and "The Slicer." In "The Susie," is only the episode where their relationship is prominent as much as the relationship between the other characters. As with other people, George does try to make up with Kramer to get Allison back. The Wife is the eighty-first episode of the NBC sitcom Seinfeld. ...

He has an affinity for nice restrooms and lush work facilities. In "The Revenge," he quits his real estate job solely because he is forbidden from using his boss's private bathroom. In "The Busboy," he claims to have a cursory knowledge of the locations of the best bathrooms in the city. In "The Bookstore" George takes a book into the bathroom. When he tries to return it the clerk rejects it, declaring, "it's been flagged, this book has been in the bathroom." George tries to figure out a way to get his money back, but his book has been flagged in every bookstore database in the city. When working for the Yankees, he suggested having the bathroom stall doors stretched all the way to the floor (allowing people's legs not to be seen while in the stalls) and in many episodes he shows a fascination with toilet paper and its history. His obsession with bathrooms and bathroom related material is unexplained in the show, but surely serves to reveal George's quirks and neurotic personality. HMS Revenge, built at a cost of £4,000 at the Royal Dockyard of Deptford in 1577 by Mathew Baker, Master Shipwright, was to usher in a new style of ship building that would revolutionize naval warfare for the next three hundred years. ...

The Bookstore is the one-hundred and seventy-third episode of the hit NBC sitcom Seinfeld. ... For the South Park episode, see Toilet Paper (South Park episode). ...


George is also incredibly impressionable and many of his actions are based on the actions and advice of his friends. In "The Engagement," George asks Susan Ross to marry him and is enthusiastic about changing his life after Jerry claims that he plans to do the same; however, when George finds out that Jerry doesn't plan to change his ways at all, he suddenly realizes how big a mistake he just made. It is revealed that he only asked Susan to marry him because he thought Jerry was also going to at least be in a meaningful relationship that would result in marriage for the two. In another episode, ("The Conversion") George willingly converts to the Latvian Orthodox faith for his girlfriend, Sasha, after Elaine mentions that it would be romantic, only to learn that she is going to Latvia after he completes the conversion. The Engagement is the seventh season opener (along with the one-hundred and eleventh overall episode) of the popular NBC series Seinfeld. ... The Conversion is the seventy-fifth episode of the NBC sitcom Seinfeld. ... This article needs to be cleaned up to conform to a higher standard of quality. ...


His relationships with women are always unsuccessful and usually end badly. His most disastrous relationship, an engagement to Susan Ross, is one of the few that ends "well" for George; he fears marriage and Susan's unexpected death saves him from the commitment. However, even this comes back to "bite him in the butt" — her wealthy parents create a foundation in her honor and endow it with the land, mansions, and money that would have been given to George and Susan upon their marriage.

Although occasionally referred to as being dumb by his friends (notably Elaine), a contention George does not really argue with, there is every reason to believe George is quite an intelligent man despite his neurotic behavior. He is considered an expert liar, and is often able to talk his way out of extraordinary situations. In "The Andrea Doria" he won a jury over against a Clarence by telling his painful life story and has agreed to be more traumatic than Clarence's tale of shipwrecks and death. George has good speaking skills and is able to relay his childhood trauma and personal demons very well. By the end, the jury was in tears and gave him the case. In "The Beard" George also remarks on his own ability to lie, stating, "Jerry, just remember, it's not a lie if you believe it." His skeptical, almost paranoid nature also makes it extremely difficult for someone to put one over on him. In "The Abstinence," it is discovered George has what would appear to be genius-level intelligence but that he can never access it because his mind is always so completely focused on sex. When circumstances allow him to temporarily remove sex from his mind, he is able to reach his true potential. It should also be noted that George possibly has talent for being an editor just like Elaine. This is shown in the episode "The Red Dot," where he actually stays late to continue his job, commenting on how easy it is. This is also one of the only times where Elaine has actually complimented George for a skill other than lying, as she calls him a "dynamo" at the job. The Andrea Doria is the 144th episode of the hit sitcom Seinfeld. ... The Beard is an episode of NBC sitcom Seinfeld. ... The Abstinence is the 143rd episode of the American sitcom Seinfeld. ... The Red Dot is the twenty-ninth episode of the hit sitcom Seinfeld. ...


The Notes About Nothing on the 1st episode of Seinfeld reveal that George was originally described as an intelligent man trying to escape city life. Throughout the first two seasons, he maintained a sense of intelligence and gave little indication of being an idiot, to the point that he even gave correct advice to Jerry and Elaine about relationships and other topics. However, George's foolishness, and possibly the show's decision to ultimately make him an idiot, was revealed in the episode, "The Cafe," where George had to take an I.Q. test for his girlfriend and in the end had Elaine do it for him. The entire episode actually partly focuses on revealing how idiotic George truly is, especially through his revelation of apparently getting a horrible SAT score but telling everyone he received a 1480. His true score will go with him to the grave. Until that episode, it was just assumed that he was smart; however, from that episode on, George's neurotic stupidity would progress more and more through his actions and ideals, until it became one of his primary characteristics. By the season 6 episode, "The Couch," he couldn't even concentrate enough to read a 90 page book (Breakfast at Tiffany's).Despite all his negative traits,there are moments when George is capable of being brave and responsible. The Café was the twenty-fourth episode of the hit sitcom Seinfeld. ... The Couch is an episode of NBC sitcom Seinfeld. ... Breakfast at Tiffanys is a novella by Truman Capote published in 1958. ...


Larry David's Influence

George is based primarily upon co-creator Larry David (see 5th Season DVD Special Feature "Jason + Larry = George"), and named after Jerry Seinfeld's college classmate Michael Costanza (who appeared in the 3rd Season episode "The Parking Space"). Many of George's predicaments were based on past real-life experiences of David. In "The Revenge," for example, when George quits his job in a fury only to realize his actions were a mistake, he goes back the next day as if nothing happened, mirroring David's actions while working as a writer for Saturday Night Live, when he quit and then returned to his job in the same manner. Lawrence Gene David, (born July 2, 1947 in Brooklyn, New York) better known as Larry David, is an Emmy-winning actor, writer, comedian, producer and film director. ...

Alexander, from his first audition for the part, based the character George on Woody Allen. As the show progressed, Alexander discovered that the character was based on David. As Alexander explains in an interview for the Seinfeld DVD, during an early conversation with David, Alexander questioned a script, saying, "This could never happen to anyone, and even if it did, no human being would react like this." David replied, "What do you mean? This happened to me once, and this is exactly how I reacted!"

Jerry Seinfeld described the character of George Costanza. Seinfeld stated "Anger is the key to this whole character, justifiable anger . . . It's justifiable from the point of view. He got a raw deal, handed a bad hand in life, and he's gonna get even."


Family and background

George is half Italian (on his father's side) and presumably Jewish (on his mother's)[3], the son of Frank and Estelle Costanza, who are described as "psychopaths" by Jerry ("The Puffy Shirt"); "loud" and "always fighting" by Helen Seinfeld ("The Raincoats, Part 1"); and "sick" by the father of Susan Ross ("The Rye"). The constant bickering and bizarre behavior of his parents is often cited as a reason for George's adult neurosis and eccentricity: Jerry comments that George "could have been normal" had the Costanzas divorced thirty years earlier ("The Chinese Woman"), and George describes himself as "the result of my parents having stayed together" ("The Shoes"). Nevertheless, George can be fiercely defensive on his parents' behalf if they are snubbed by others, as when Jerry's own parents avoided dinner with them in "The Raincoats, Part 1."

In "The Suicide," George makes reference to a brother who "once impregnated a woman named Pauline." The brother is referenced again in "The Parking Space" when George explains that no one in his family pays for parking, but the brother is never referenced elsewhere, nor does he make an appearance in the series. In the same episode it is mentioned that both of his parents are bald (which they aren't). This was before the first appearance of either of them.

Plot Spoiler warning: Kramer tells Jerry about something his friend Mike said about Jerry being a phony. ...


George has two known cousins. One of them is Shelly, who appeared in "The Contest," and his other cousin Rhisa appears in "The Junk Mail," referred to by George as Frank's "brother's daughter," although this uncle does not appear, either; however, it is mentioned at another time that George has an uncle Moe, who "died a young man" ("The Money"). George also had an aunt, "Aunt Baby," who died at the age of 7 of internal problems ("The Money"). When asked by his wife how old Aunt Baby would be today if she had lived, Frank Costanza replied, "she never would'a' made it." In "The Doll," it is revealed that Frank Costanza has a cousin, Carlo, in Italy. As of the first season episode "The Robbery" George had a living grandmother and grandfather whom he had recently visited. These are likely his father's parents as in another episode George asks his mother about her mother, whom he never really knew and had only seen pictures of.

Jerry

George's best-friendship with Jerry is arguably the main relationship in the series. Despite their trademark shallowness, there does appear to be a deep fraternal bond between Jerry and George that only makes itself clearly shown very rarely. At one point George mentions his dislike for telling people he loves them, remarking casually to Jerry "I like you, I don't tell you," to which Jerry replies "We can only thank God for that." Likewise, once when Jerry's emotionally cold exterior gets broken and his emotions come flooding out of him, he tells George that he loves him as well, which makes George very uncomfortable, until after he tells Jerry of his greatest fears and becomes emotional himself, even though it turns Jerry "back to normal." This article is about the term God in the context of monotheism and henotheism. ...


The friendship of George and Jerry is also apparently great enough to not be disrupted by financial issues. In "The Cadillac, Part 1," Elaine and Kramer both treat Jerry differently after finding out how much money he seems to make, with Elaine becoming very flirty with him and Kramer going so far as to claim "I think this changes the friendship." George, however, still treats Jerry the same throughout the entire episode. The Cadillac, Part 1 is the first half of an hour-long, two-part episode of NBC sitcom Seinfeld (followed by The Cadillac, Part 2). It aired on February 8, 1996. ...


The extreme closeness of the friendship (despite being entirely platonic as Jerry and George are both heterosexual) is occasionally mistaken for homosexuality. "The Outing" deals with a reporter from a New York University college paper mistaking Jerry and George for a homosexual couple, and in "The Cartoon" George dates someone who Kramer insists is merely a "femme Jerry." When George is forced to note to himself that the idea of a female Jerry with whom he can have a close personal relationship and also a sexual relationship would be everything he's ever wanted, George breaks off his relationship with the woman in horror.

Susan

George becomes engaged to Susan Biddle Ross, a wealthy executive at NBC who approved Jerry and George's show-within-the-show sitcom pilot. George and Susan date for a year, during which time the commitment-phobic George is constantly trying to find ways to end their relationship without actually having to initiate the breakup with her. In "The Engagement," he proposes to her in a short-lived bout of midlife crisis, after he and Jerry had made a "pact" to move forward with their lives. When Jerry breaks up with his girlfriend and declares the deal over, George panics and again tries repeatedly to weasel out of his engagement. He gets his wish about two weeks before the wedding in "The Invitations," when he inadvertently causes her death by selecting cheap envelopes for their wedding invitations, not knowing they contained toxic glue. When notified of her death at the hospital, George displays a combination of shock, apathy and relief. A few moments after being notified of Susan's passing, he says to Jerry, Kramer and Elaine, "Well, let's go get some coffee." Susan's parents, never knowing the specifics behind her poisoning but suspecting George was somehow involved, never forgive him for this, and they appoint him to the Board of Directors of the Susan Ross Foundation to keep him trapped under their influence and to ensure that he would never get any of Susan's inheritance.

Religion

Unlike Jerry, George is never specifically identified as Jewish - or any other religion. But according to some hints given in the show, it is most likely that he is Catholic. Larry David once claimed in an interview that George is half-Jewish/half-Italian, although that could merely be ethnicity. If this is the case, then the obvious conclusion to draw is that Estelle is the Jewish half of the equation, as the name "Costanza" comes from Frank, he hails from Tuscany and all references to the possible Catholicism of the Costanza family are due to aspects of Frank, not Estelle. This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ... For other uses, see Tuscany (disambiguation). ...

  • In the episode "The Fatigues," it is learned that Frank, George's father, is a member of the Knights of Columbus, an all-Catholic fraternal organization.
  • It is revealed Frank has relatives in Italy, and lived in Italy for part of his early childhood. Additionally in "The Calzone," George points out that Costanza is Italian, and that he and the Paisano's clerk are like family because of that.
  • In "The Understudy" Jerry tells Elaine that Frank Costanza sold religious articles like statues of Jesus and the Blessed Virgin Mary, which are obviously symbols of the Catholic faith.
  • George sometimes refers to "Mother of God," using it as an expression of being stunned (e.g. in "The Rye").
  • In the episode The Money, Estelle alludes to her Jewish faith when she opts to purchase a Cadillac instead of a Mercedes because she won't ride a German car.

  • In "The Conversion," George converts to Latvian Orthodox so that he can continue to date his girlfriend who will only date within her faith. When George's parents discover his plan to convert, they are furious (Frank thinks that it is the group that "goes around mutilating squirrels").
  • In "The Strike," it is revealed that George's father Frank invented the December holiday Festivus to counter the commercialism of Christmas. When George was a child, he was forced to celebrate the holiday, and as a result George hates Festivus. George shows his feelings for the holiday when he refuses to take down Frank in the Feats of Strength (but Frank makes him do it anyway).
  • In "The Pilot, Part 1," it is revealed that George does not believe in God except for the "bad things" in life.

Professional life

George's professional life is unstable. He is unable to remain in any job for any great length of time before making an embarrassing blunder and getting fired. Very often the blunder is lying and trying to cover it up only to have it all fall apart.


Over the course of the series, he works for a real estate transaction services firm (Rick Bahr Properties), a rest stop supply company (Sanalac), Elaine's company (Pendant Publishing), the New York Yankees (his longest running job), a playground equipment company (Play Now), an industrial smoothing company (Kruger Industrial Smoothing), and other places. He is fired from his job at Pendant Publishing for having sex with the cleaning woman on his desk in "The Red Dot" (he professes he has always been attracted to cleaning women).

His original job when the series starts is as a real estate agent; he ends up quitting, only to slip his boss a mickey in "The Revenge." It remains to be seen why George would be able to collect unemployment when he quits his job without any good reason. He always wanted be an architect; he first desires to be one in "The Stakeout," and he claims in "The Race" that he had designed "the new addition to the Guggenheim." In "The Van Buren Boys," he denies his young protégé a scholarship from the Susan Ross Foundation when the young man decides he no longer wants to be an architect, and wants to become a city planner instead.

This was his longest-lasting job during the course of the series. While at the Yankees George was promoted twice, replacing his former bosses Mr. Morgan and Mr. Wilhelm.

Pseudonyms

  • Art Vandelay first appears in the episode "The Stakeout," in which George and Jerry need an excuse to give to a woman as to why they are waiting in the lobby of the office building where she worked. Their excuse is that they were meeting Art Vandelay, an importer-exporter who works in the same building, for lunch. In one instance ("The Boyfriend, Part 1"), George tells the unemployment office he is close to getting a job at "Vandelay Industries." The name is also used as a fake boyfriend of Elaine. Here, Art is an importer/exporter, and used as a cover story for when George is going on a date with Marisa Tomei, claiming that George and Elaine are meeting to discuss a problem with her boyfriend so that Susan does not think that George is having an affair ("The Cadillac, Part 1"). George also uses the pseudonym when interviewing for a job with Elaine's boss in "The Red Dot." When asked which authors he reads the answer is "Art Vandelay" from New York. In "The Serenity Now," George calls up fake customers, one of which is "Mr. Vandelay," pretending to get computer orders. In "The Bizarro Jerry" George goes to an office and asks for Mr. Vandelay, as part of a setup to approach an attractive secretary. Finally, in "The Puerto Rican Day," George pretends to be Vandelay (along with Jerry as Kal Vernsen and Kramer as Pennypacker) to try to sneak into an open house to watch a Mets game that they had left because they were getting blown out. In the episode "The Finale," the name of the presiding judge is actually Arthur Vandelay, much to the amazement of George. George says he thinks it is "good luck" that that is the judge's name.
  • At one point ("The Maid"), George wants to be known as T-Bone, but his co-workers at Kruger Industrial Smoothing nickname him Koko because of the way he had flailed his arms when demanding the nickname "T-Bone" back from a coworker. George deliberately hires a woman named Coco to work there, only to be nicknamed Gammy instead.
  • George reveals that if he were to be a porn star, his name would be Buck Naked. ("The Outing")
  • During a very long period of unemployment for George, Jerry calls George Biff, referring to the Biff Loman character in Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman. George is also compared to Biff Loman by the daughter of Lenore Sokol, the woman in charge of George's unemployment benefits.
  • George once assumes the identity of a man named Donald O'Brien in order to take his limousine ("The Limo"), only to later discover this man was the leader of a white supremacist neo-nazi group and was on his way to make his first public appearance, at Madison Square Garden.
  • In "The Watch," a doorman mistakenly tells Mr. Dalrymple that a "George Bonanza" has arrived to see him.
  • In "The Chinese Restaurant," the host calls for a "Cartwright" to answer a call from George's girlfriend.
  • George's attempt to streak at Yankee Stadium while wearing a body suit earned him the name Body Suit Man. ("The Millennium")
  • In "The Library," George is reunited with his former old high school teacher who always called him "Cant-stand-ya"
  • In "The Contest" he says "I'm king of the county."

George Costanza - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (5194 words)
George is the son of Frank and Estelle Costanza, described as "psychopath[s]" by Jerry ("The Puffy Shirt"), "loud" and "always fighting" by Helen Seinfeld ("The Raincoats, Part 1") and "sick" by the father of Susan Ross ("The Rye").
George views himself as being made up of two distinct psyches: "Independent George" and "Relationship George." The latter is the tedious personality he felt compelled to adopt within the context of his personal relationship with Susan Biddle Ross in order to maintain that relationship.
George tells the priest that the reason for his conversion was the nice hats worn by the clergy.
