In two separate episodes of Seinfeld, George mentions his brother.

The first, in episode fifteen of the third season, titled "The Suicide":

RULA: Who’s Pauline?
GEORGE: Pauline? . . . Wait a minute. I got it. My brother once impregnated a woman named Pauline.
RULA: Do you think about her?
GEORGE: When I hear her name mentioned.

The second, in the twenty-third episode of the third season, titled "The Parking Spot":

ELAINE: Oh come on, George, please put it in a garage. I don't want to spend an hour looking for a space.
GEORGE: I can't park in a garage.
GEORGE: I don't know, I just can't. Nobody in my family can pay for parking, it's a sickness. My father never paid for parking; my mother, my brother, nobody. We can't do it.

Further confusing the situation is that in later episodes George repeatedly claims to be an only child. (examples welcome)

So what's the deal with George Constanza's brother? Is he real, or is George an only child?

Unfortunately it is an unsolved mystery; those are the only 2 times his brother is mentioned and there is much more of him claiming otherwise.

  • It could only be a common "movie" mistake, since there is not any weight put on his brother he is only used as a subject in a response.
  • In other case it could only be that his is just sarcastic when telling he is only child, like he has a grunge against his brother.

I would go with a "movie" mistake however.
