See, you know how to take the reservation...

Wow, what a first response! I want to thank every person who has visited this site so far. We are well on our way to getting this book published. Just keep on coming to the site and telling anyone and everyone about it. OK, on to business.

The way the encyclopedia will work is a complete A to Z guide. There is the initial word or phrase and that is followed by a description and usually a lot of dialogue from the episode. And at the end, is the episode number. In addition to the A to Z guide, the book will feature an "entry listed by episode" section for quick and easy access to all entries. Meaning, that if you go to this section, you can see all the entries from a certain episode, like the Junior Mint or what have you. Also, I will include an episode guide to all nine season which will include original airdate, writers and guest stars.

And now to wet your whistles, here is an entry from the episode, "The Alternate Side".

Reservation Jerry makes a reservation for a midsize car at Worthy Rent-A-Car, but when he arrives, the agent says they have no midsize available at the moment; Jerry asks, “I made a reservation? Do you have my reservation?” and the agent responds, “Yes, we do. Unfortunately, we ran out of cars.” Jerry explains, “But the reservation keeps the car here. That’s why you have the reservations.” When the agent says, “I know why we have the reservations,” Jerry tells her, “I don’t think you do. If you did, I’d have a car. See, you know how to take the reservation. You just don’t know how to hold the reservation. And that’s really the most important part of the reservation, the holding. Anyone can just take them.” The agent then goes to talk to her supervisor and says there’s nothing to be done; Jerry can have a compact if he likes, and Jerry agrees; when the agent asks if he’d like the insurance, Jerry tells her, “Yeah, you better give me the insurance, because I am gonna beat the hell outta this thing.” (28)

So there you have it, your first glimpse at my book. Thank you all once again, and just keep on coming back. "Come early, come often" as they say. And as always, if you follow the link to the right, you can get your name in the book! Yes, you read that right. Your name could be in every bookstore in America! Sounds nice, doesn't it? Let's make it happen.
