George quickly established himself as the sad sack of the main group, drifting through a series of failed jobs and romantic relationships that he often self-sabotage. By the Season 5 finale “The Opposite,” George decided to completely change his outlook on life in a desperate bid to reverse his fate. Though George’s lifestyle changes proved surprisingly successful for him, his rise to fame has been accompanied by Elaine’s own downward spiral as she fills the void as the group’s alleged loser.
George begins to consciously make choices that are completely opposite of what he would normally make, which leads to him dating a beautiful woman and being hired by the New York Yankees. However, Elaine endures a breakup and begins to visibly care less about herself, going so far as to resemble George in his lowly moments. The crowning glory of this hilarious tale is the realization that while George and Elaine occupy opposite spectrums of the group’s success, Jerry stays right in the middle, without an overwhelming sense of success or failure.
