Just like Larry David! I always find myself relating to LD and seeing the validity in his points of view. There's no question his "character" on Curb is an awful person though.

I've had an IRL argument by stating that I think Larry was right in saying that it's dumb to have dinner in one restaurant before driving to a diferent one and having dessert there.

The one that really got me wasn't in an episode I don't think, but from Seinfeld's comedy CD. He mentions how you're in the shower sometimes and you notice a hair stuck to the wall and proceed to gather little pools of water with your hands to throw at it so you don't have to touch it. I thought I was the only one!

He was spot on about the Hospital waiting room, too. I always feel like such an rear end in a top hat in there.

One thing that always bugged me: When he's talking about the superman suit, he says "but it's not the super fit... that you are hopin' fo.'" He says it in this weird stilted way that I'm sure he must be doing something visually, but I've never had any idea what he was going for there.

I'm going to assume he was probably pulling on his jacket, in an attempt to look like it didn't fit. I've seen it live (well, on tv) but it's not the same recording.

It keeps up that pace right up until the current season in my opinion. All of Curb is great.

One interesting take on The Finale I always found interesting was that as the events play out, the foursome actually die when the plane goes down and the trial is representative of one of the ideas of the afterlife, where you go on trial and face all the people you've wronged in your life awaiting judgment. I'm not sure this is what Larry had in mind (and would have been retconned by last season's Curb) but it makes the lackluster of it for its time more appealing for sure.

My other favorite intro is for the Merv Griffin Show, which I can't seem to find:

Kramer: We're like Cain and Abel.
Jerry: You know Cain slew Abel.
Kramer: No he didn't. They were in business together...drywall or something.
Jerry: The way I remember it, Abel worked all summer harvesting his crops, while Cain just played in the field. Then when winter came, Abel had all the nuts. Cain had no nuts. So he killed him.
Kramer: See, the way I remember it, Cain - he was a successful doctor, but when he took this special formula, he became Mr Abel.
Jerry: You broke my blender, didn't you?
Kramer: Yeah, I was trying to make gravel, and it just, didn't work out.

I don't remember this at all. Is this where they are walking down the street and come up to the dumpster? I've seen that a bunch of times but TBS always seems to start right when they come up to the dumpster.

I know it's an obvious thing to say, but Seinfeld thrives in basically taking all those little things that people do but don't talk about because they know it's socially not acceptable, and then having the person that does it fall under social scrutiny.

I would drape myself in velvet if it was socially acceptable.

Also, one of my favourite George moments:

As I understand it was cut in syndication. Which makes the exchange between Jerry and Kramer after the cue (right before they find the set) a bit out of place:

Jerry: Why were you making gravel?
Kramer: Well... I like the sound it makes when you walk on it.

I dated a Jewish girl in high school. She told me that no matter what you do, if you're Jewish, you only go to hell for a year. It made the finale make way more sense to me.

I just realized the character of Susan's mother is amazing, especially when she's drunk.

"Look Henry I spilled wine on me!"

And a bonus Frank quote from a scene with her:

"Let me understand. You've got the hen, chicken and the rooster. The rooster, goes with the chicken. So who's. havin. sex. with. the hen?"

She's a really weird looking person, for some reason I've always thought since seeing her in this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUJSMAWFXkY#t=1m45s that she looks like the alien from the Alien series. I'm not really sure why, it might just be because she looks a bit like Sigourney Weaver if Sigourney Weaver was actually an ill-fitting flesh suit stretched over a robot or something.

Which episode is the one where George wants Jerry not to be funny in front of George's date? One of my favorite scenes is from that episode (badly butchered transcript as follows):

George: You can't not be funny!
Jerry: Am I being funny now? Is this funny?
Elaine: A little.
Jerry: George, is this funny?
George: It's funny!


e: just found it, and the above transcript was as badly butchered as expected. Hilarious scene though:
