UPDATE:
 
23. An astute commenter has pointed out another unsolved mystery.  George, indeed, mentions a brother in the third season episode, The Suicide.  Also, he mentions him again in The Parking Space.  So, who is George’s brother and how come we never meet him?
 
24. In another third season episode, The Fix-Up, there’s a scene where Cynthia and Elaine are talking about George.  If you look closely at the refrigerator, you’ll notice black fingerprints.  How did they get there and who do they belong to?
 
25. Why do Newman and Jerry hate each other?

  1. In the first season, George also makes a comment about a sibling. I think it’s a brother, but isn’t mentioned ever again. It might have been the pilot.

  2. Sorry, it was season 3, "the suicide". George makes a reference to his brother impregnating a woman. funny

  3. to answer question ten. the following season he explains to his father why they broke up. i believe it was when elaine and jerry visit jerry’s parents in Florida in the 3rd season. they’re(jerry and his parents) are whispering about elaine, and jerry tells them they decided it was best to stay friends. something about it being complicated i think. It is “The Pen” episode.

  4. I can’t believe you missed this one:

    In “The Seven” does the girl that Jerry is dating wear the same dress every day? Does she have multiple like Superman?

  5. [...] 44. Is Christie, Jerry’s girlfriend in The Seven, really wearing the same black & white dress with the neck scoop every time they see each other or does she have a closet full of them? (Belated thanks to Joe Pants for this one.) [...]

  6. 13. He says during the “plane crash” that he cheated because he is a cheater.
    25. I think Jerry said during an interview that hating Newman was just a funny thing to him, so there’s no reason.

  7. Though Jerry has stated publicly that the decision to have Jerry and Newman hate each other was made simply because it just seemed funnier to do so, I’ve always believed it was because Jerry wouldn’t let Newman borrow the deaf lip reader he was dating to spy on his new supervisor and verify his suspicions that they were planning to transfer him. Furthermore, the gang proving that the non-fat frozen yogurt actually had fat in it probably didn’t make Newman any happier, either.
