In the Seinfeld episode "The Junior Mints" Jerry is going out with a girl whose name he can't remember, who tells him that it rhymes with a part of the female anatomy. Later we discover that her name is Dolores. What body part does that rhyme with?


Clitoris, though it only rhymes with a specific pronunciation (cli-TO-ris instead of CLI-toris). It's discussed on the episode's Wiki page which also explains George's bizarre name suggestions (e.g. Loleola) and includes this little tidbit:

According to the "Inside Look" from the DVD, the writers had trouble coming up with a name for Jerry's girlfriend, initially settling upon "Cloris". When filming the episode, a comedian would warm up the studio audience in between filming scenes and asked them to guess Jerry's girlfriend's name; one audience member guessed Dolores, which was deemed a better fit than their first choice. Jerry Seinfeld approved in time to add it to the script and the scene was shot with that being the character's name. Afterwards, a producer for the show was amused to overhear the audience member's husband saying "you guessed right!"

    I think George didn’t suggest “Loleola”. He suggested “Celeste”, “Kest”, “Rest”, “Sest”, “Hest”, “Aretha”, “Bovary” and “Mulva”. Jerry tried “Gipple” and “Loleola” at the end of the episode. Jul 2 '20 at 13:45
  • We don't actually get confirmation that her name is Dolores. I was thinking "Regina" and assumed that this was so obvious that they left out the confirmation in the show. Oct 23 at 18:41
