Ok, let's debate it here. Who was right in "The Parking Space?"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0v42Gz5EH4

Debate for George: He was parallel parking.
Debate for Mike: George was taking too long, and Mike started parking first.

Here's the conversation:

quote:

Elaine (pointing backwards): Oh George, there's a space right there!

George (putting the car in reverse): Oh beautiful! Look at that, the dream
space right in front of Jerry's building. Huh? Dreams can come true, what did
I tell you?

Elaine: You didn't even have to take it out to dinner.

They share a laugh.

George: Alright, now you're gonna see some parallel parking. (spitting into
his hands and rubbing them together) How I wish you could make a living
parallel parking. (turning around in his seat) It's all geometry, knowing all
the angles, when to make that first turn and then when to swing it back in,
that's the key.

Elaine: Will you just park it already?

George: There's nothing I can even impart to you, that's the sad thing. It's
so inborn, I can't pass it on. (begins backing into the space) Look at this
guy. Are you crazy, what are you doing?! Hey! Hey, you're stealing my space!

Elaine: George, wait, you don't know who this guy is, people kill for a parking
space in this city.

George: No no no, he's not getting away with this.

Elaine: George?

George gets out of the car to confront the other driver.

George: Hey, what are you doing?

Mike: I think I'm parking my car.

George: You can't do that, you can't just sneak in from the back like that.

Mike: I'm not sneaking. I didn't even know you were parking, you were just
sitting there three spaces up.

George: Well if you didn't think I was parking, why did you put it in head
first?

Mike: Well that's the way I park. Anyway, you didn't start backing in until I
pulled in.

George: I was in the middle of a conversation.

My problem is that the space is huge, and parallel parking isn't even necessary. Elaine is the one who notices the spot, so in my mind George would have missed it anyway. George gives a little speech before he pulls into the spot so he's taking longer than necessary. Now, if the other guy came up on George, fully aware that George was backing up, then I side with George. Larry says George is right but going from what he said earlier, I think he only says that to cause further debate. I dunno, what do you guys think?

If there is room, and if you decide to go head-first, you have earned the consequences from people who have done it correctly, although in their absence your action would not have been innately immoral.

I haven't seen that episode in a long time. The big question is did anybody notice George put the car into reverse before beginning his speech to Elaine?

If the reverse lights were on the space was his, no lights no space.

If George had just been sitting there in park I'd say it's Mike's space, if not for the fact that the car's reverse lights would have made it apparent to anyone behind George that he's backing into the space. George had put the car in reverse before Mike began to pull in head first.

Did George have his blinker on? This is important. Either way, George is right, but if he had his blinker on he's even more right.

I like how terrifying Elaine's father was at the restaurant in "The Jacket". The part where George comes up with a really lovely lie to try and get out of dinner and Jerry goes "Oh yeah, that'd work....he'd clunk our heads together like Moe."

edit: Haha here's the exchange:

JERRY: How are we going to get out of it?
GEORGE: We'll say we're frightened and we have to go home.
JERRY: Yeah, that's good. He'd clunk our heads together like Moe.
GEORGE: I don't know. Just start scratching. Tell him you have the crabs. He was in the military. He'll understand that.

The preceding scene is the best, with Jerry being an rear end in a top hat to the holistic therapy guy, Tor, as he's making herbal tea for George.

Tor: Your tea is ready now. This should solve your so-called tonsil problem. It's a special concoction. It contains crampbark.
Jerry: I love crampbark.
Tor: Cleavers.
Jerry: Cleaver, I once had cleaver as a kid. I was able to lift a car!
Tor: And some couchgrass.
Jerry: Couchgrass and crampbark? You know, I think that's what killed Curly.

This isn't going to stop until Pictionary bans the word windmill.


I like Jerry's "thoughts" in that scene.
Tor: You know, I am not a business man. I'm a holistic healer. It's a calling, it's a gift. You see, it's in the best interest of the medical profession that you remain sick. You see, that insures good business. You're not a patient. You're a customer.

Jerry: And you're not a doctor, but you play one in real life.
