    Seinfeld: A tribute to the greatest show ever

    Join me, Got Spin, in discussion of the worlds greatest tv show. Share quotes, clips and other little quirks that have been amassed from those nine years of sheer brilliance.

    I though we'd start things off with a little tribute video

    As great as Seinfeld is, Curb is better. Haven't met a fan of both (and I know ALOT) that thinks otherwise.

    The Contest - One of Seinfeld's most controversial episodes, in which masterbation was never once mentioned in any form or shape, but was evidently implied. A great episode. Season 4 was the greatest

    CYE annoys me. It just doesn't have that mix of characters that made Seinfeld so damn good.

    Never a show to stay by the guidlines of political correctness, The Outing remains as one my favourite episodes. Who can forget the line 'Not that there's anything wrong with that'

    Can't split 'em. Curb's more modernised, thus edgier. Seinfeld is classic, seen every episode 511 times, still as funny the 512nd time.

    Outside apartment building, night. George and Jerry are sat on a low wall:

    George: Well there is traffic. It might take her till eight-fifteen.

    Jerry: I got one problem: you're keeping her busy in the other room. Now,

    what if she somehow gets away from you and is coming in? You have to signal me

    that she's coming.

    George: A signal, right, erm, OK, er OK, the signal is, I'll call out 'Tippy

    toe!'

    Jerry: 'Tippy Toe?' I don't think so.

    George: You don't like 'Tippy toe?'

    Jerry: No 'Tippy toe.'

    George: Alright, er, OK I got it, erm, I'll sing.

    Jerry: What song?

    George: Erm, 'How do you solve a problem like Maria?'

    Jerry: What is that?

    George: Oh, it's a lovely song. (Sings) How do you solve a problem like

    Maria?

    Jerry: Anything else?

    George: You pick it.

    Jerry: 'Lemon Tree'

    George: Peter, Paul and Mary.

    Jerry: No, Trini Lopez.

    Both: (Singing) Lemon tree very pretty and a lemon flower

    George: You got the tape?

    Jerry: (Produces tapes) Standard. Micro.

    George: How do you feel? Confident?

    Jerry: Feel good.

    George: You nervous?

    Jerry: Not at all.

    George: Get up, get up, it's her. Oh, the hell with this, I'm scared to

    death, just walk away, it's off, cancel everything, go!

    (Carol arrives)

    George: Hey! What are you doing here? I thought I was supposed to call you

    when I got home.

    George: I, I couldn't wait. I was too anxious to see you.

    Carol: Oh, that's so sweet.

    George: Oh, this is my friend, Jerry Seinfeld. I just bumped into him

    around the corner. Isn't that a coincidence? The funny thing is, I see him all

    the time.

    Jerry: All the time.

    Carol: It's nice to meet you.

    Jerry: Hi.

    Carol: So, I'm starving. Where are we gonna eat?

    George: You know, we could go uptown, and that way we could give Jerry a

    ride home.

    Carol: OK. Let's go, I'm ready, where'd you park?

    George: Don't you wanna go upstairs first?

    Carol: No, what for? I'll just give my bag to the doorman.

    Jerry: You know, I really need to use the bathroom.

    Carol: Oh well there's a bathroom in the coffee shop just next door.

    George: Yes, yes, but er, I have to make a call, so...

    Carol: Well they have a phone.

    (George takes Carol to one side)

    George: I know Jerry. He has this phobia about public toilets. I think we

    really should go upstairs.

    Carol: (Aloud) You know, I think I will go upstairs. I can check my

    machine.

    George: Right, right.

    (They enter building)



    Inside Carol's apartment. Carol, Jerry and George enter:

    Carol: The bathroom's on the hall to the right.

    Jerry: Er, you know, why don't you go first, you just had a long trip.

    Carol: No, I'm fine.

    Jerry: Uhmmm, you know, it's the damnedest thing, it went away.

    Carol: Oh that's weird.

    George: No, no that can happen. I've, er, I've read about that in medical

    journals. It's a freak thing, but...

    Carol: Well, let me just check my messages, and we'll go.

    George: Uh, Carol, can I talk to you for a second? Right now.

    Carol: Sure.

    George: Please, this is very, very important. (Leads her to other room)

    (Jerry goes over to machine to switch tape)

    George: (Shouts from other room) Uhh, tippy toe! Tippy toe! Lemon tree!

    (Carol reappears followed by George)

    Carol: (To Jerry) Now I know who you are. You're a comedian. I've seen

    you, it's driving me crazy.

    Jerry: Right. I am.

    George: Carol, that's so rude. Please, I'm serious, just for a moment, if

    you wouldn't mind, and then we'll talk to Jerry.

    (George leads Carol back out, Jerry switches tapes)

    Jerry: (Shouts) Hey you two. I'm ready to go.

    (George and Carol return)

    Carol: That's what you had to tell me? Your father wears sneakers in the

    pool?

    George: (To Jerry) Don't you find that strange?

    Jerry: Yes.
    Best scene in TV history.

    Great contribution there Hoggy. I particulaly love that ending to the scene. This bit i refer to ofcourse
    Carol: That's what you had to tell me? Your father wears sneakers in the

    pool?

    George: (To Jerry) Don't you find that strange?

    Jerry: Yes.

    I might as well contribute too.

    The Marine Biologist. My favourite episode

    George: So I started to walk into the water. I won't lie to you boys, I was terrified! But I pressed on and as I made my way passed the breakers a strange calm came over me. I don't know if it was divine intervention or the kinship of all living things but I tell you Jerry at that moment I was a marine biologist!

    Elaine: George I was just reading this thing in the papers, it's amazing!

    George: I know I was just telling them the story.

    Kramer: Come on George, finish the story.

    George: The sea was angry that day my friends, like an old man trying to return soup at a deli! I got about fifty-feet out and then suddenly the great beast appeared before me. I tell ya he was ten stories high if he was a foot. As if sensing my presence he gave out a big bellow. I said, "Easy big fella!" And then as I watched him struggling I realized something was obstructing his breathing. From where I was standing I could see directly into the eye of the great fish!

    Jerry: Mammal.

    George: Whatever.

    Kramer: Well, what did you do next?

    George: Then from out of nowhere a huge tidal wave lifted. Tossed like a cork, I found myself on top of him face to face with the blow-hole. I could barely see from all of the waves crashing down on top of me but I knew something was there so I reached my hand and pulled out the obstruction!
    [George pulls out of the inside pocket a golf ball]

    Kramer: What is that a Titleist? A hole in one, eh?

    That's the main point of it though, in Seinfeld, Jerry was relativley normal and all the other charachters around him were nuts, in Curb, Larry is the nutjob playing off all the relativley normal people around him.

    Elaine wasn't exactly nuts. Regardless, thats just how i feel. I think Larry David is hilarious. But his supporting cast is just nowhere near as good as Seinfeld, and as a result, i find it much more funny. Humour is a fickle thing though.
