I know a lot of people claim that seasons 8 and 9, aka the post-Larry David seasons, are inferior to the rest of the show, since things got a lot wackier after Larry left, but frankly I don't care and think that some of the series's funniest episodes are from that era. Also a fellow goon and I took advantage of that wackier nature to write an episode where Kramer, after getting out of jail, tries to go to the moon. Good times.

EDIT: Also, if you like Seinfeld, and aren't watching It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, you're really missing out.

Seinfeld added so much to the pop culture vernacular. People would add poo poo to their vocabulary the day after the show aired, it was true water cooler tv.

You're right, it really is streets ahead of all other sitcoms.

This is missing George's first, failed attempts to sell computers.

George: HELLO? YOU WANNA BUY A COMPUTER?! NO? WHY NOT?! ... OKAY GOOD REASON! THANK YOU!

I gotta wonder what that guy's reason was.

How can a street intersect with itself?!

I use it every time I'm at 1st and 1st.

EDIT: Also, the thing on Seinfeld I never understood was the two-line phone that Jerry gets. Do these actually exist? I always thought you either had to have 2 separate phone lines coming into you apartment with a 2-line phone, or the phone company had to support and activate call waiting.

No, ZIP codes are not meaningless at all.

Postal zones for large cities had been around since the 1940's, but a more general system was needed by the 1960s. The 'father' of the ZIP code (it should be capitalized since it stands for Zone Improvement Plan), Robert Moon, actually submitted the idea for ZIP codes back in 1944, but it wasn't implemented until 1963 and even then ZIP codes weren't mandatory until 1967. Also, the USPS only used the first 3 numbers of Moons plan.

The first 3 numbers of a ZIP code represent the sectional center facility, which it just a large processing center. All the mail for the area goes there first and then it is sorted again by the last two numbers in the zip code. From there the mail is sent out to correct local post office which then sorts the local mail into the delivery routes.

That's all well and good, but I just KNOW these extra 4 numbers I'm starting to see at the end of zipcodes are pure bullshit. Just like sheep cloning.

So now the big question - What is "THE MOVE"?

Is the move some kind of cunnilingus move, or is it a full blown sex move? My evidence for cunnilingus was that they're always moving around under the covers when they do it, but I now know that that's just tv-shorthand for sex. My other evidence was that I couldn't think of what "the swirl" could refer to, except for something to be done with the tongue. But if that's the case, then what's "the pinch"?

OldSenileGuy

Capt. Sticl posted:

There's no question it refers to oral sex. The pinch must be about the clit, explaining why Elaine strongly prefers the swirl (both clockwise and counter-clockwise).
Edit: "Did that move involve a knuckle in any way?"

Counterpoint: George's girlfriend said it feels like aliens poking at her body. Unless The Move is oral sex with other bits thrown in.

Thatís what you had to tell me? Your father wears sneakers in the pool?

That's doubly funny because at the time that episode aired, we had never seen George's father. And then, later on in the series when we did meet him, I could totally see him being a guy to wear his sneakers in the pool.

Also, holy poo poo. I know it's Wikipedia and all, but:

quote:

In Frank's first appearance in the episode "The Handicap Spot" of season 4, the character was played by John Randolph. At the urging of series creator Larry David, once Stiller had been cast for Frank Costanza, the scenes with Randolph were reshot with Stiller for syndication.

I know there's an episode where Jerry's father is played by someone else, but does anyone know if the original version of this episode is out there somewhere?

John Randolph is probably best known around here as Clark's dad from Christmas Vacation. He's great, but Stiller IS Frank Costanza.

Also, from that same scene:

I'd like to lodge a complaint:

It always bugged me in The Contest when Jerry tells his mom he's watching Tiny Toons and then starts singing "The Wheels on the Bus go Round and Round"

Tiny Toons wasn't that kind of show for little kids aged 3-6 or so, it was more for kids aged 7-11 or so and would not have had that song on it!

Does he say Tiny Toons? Ive always just heard "watching cartoons".

He says Tiny Toons, then he says he likes cartoons. Always bugged me, possibly because when that episode first aired, I was at an age where I was watching Tiny Toons regularly. I also had very little idea what the hell they were having a contest about.
