"The Robbery" - Season 1 Episode 3 of Seinfeld First Airs

"The Robbery" is the third episode of the first season of the NBC sitcom Seinfeld.

It aired on June 7, 1990. It was written by Matt Goldman, therefore making this the first Seinfeld episode not written by the show's creators: Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David.

In the episode, the character of Jerry Seinfeld leaves Elaine in charge of his apartment while he goes on tour. When he returns, he finds the apartment has been robbed after his next-door neighbor Kramer left the front door open. While Kramer promises to find the robbers, Jerry's friend George Costanza offers him the chance to move into a much better apartment—a move he accepts, allowing Elaine to move in Jerry's apartment and away from her annoying roommate Tina.
