A donation has been made in your name to the Human Fund

Hey everybody! Today is my birthday so I thought I would showcase my entry in the book for Birthday. Unfortunately, it's not that long yet. But never fear, it will be.

Birthday Elaine has one and it coincides with her and Jerry starting to have sex again, yet still retain their friendship; it works at first, but soon deteriorates when she becomes upset with Jerry who doesn’t spend the night after having sex; Jerry then worries about getting her a birthday gift and tells George, “You don’t understand. I’m in a very delicate position. Whatever I give her, she’s going to be bringing in experts from all over the country to interpret the meaning behind it.” (14)

I want to wish everyone a very happy holiday season. No matter how you celebrate, be it with trees and presents or aluminum poles and airing of grievances. I really do appreciate everyone who has stopped by this site. We are almost at my goal of 1000 hits, so please tell anyone you know about this blog. And if you're new to the site, you can get your name in my book by just following the link on the right. Think of it as my gift to you. And to all a good night!!

I Think You May Have Something Here

Looks like it's that time again, so I'll make it short and sweet. Figured I should include the entry that is basically this book in a nutshell.

Nothing After joking around about salsa with Jerry, George says, “See, this should be the show. This is the show.” He is talking of the proposed TV show NBC has talked with Jerry about; Jerry asks “What?” and George replies, “This. Just talking.” Jerry chuckles at the notion, but George says, “No, I’m really serious. I think that’s a good idea.” Jerry asks, “Just talking? Well, what’s the show about?” and George responds, “It’s about nothing.” Jerry questions, “No story?” and George says, “No, forget the story…Remember when we were waiting for that table in that Chinese restaurant that time? That could be a TV show.” George goes on to say that he could be one of the characters, as well as Elaine and Kramer; Jerry still doesn’t quite understand, so George explains, “Everybody’s doing something. We’ll do nothing.” Jerry tries to straighten it all out, “We go into NBC, tell them we got a show about nothing.” George replies, “Exactly.” Jerry says, “They say, ‘What’s your show about?’ I say, ‘Nothing.” George replies, “There you go.” Jerry finally says, “I think you may have something here.” However, once in the meeting with the executives, George takes over, despite telling Jerry to do all the talking, and explains that the show “is just like life. You know, you eat, you go shopping, you read, you eat, you read, you go shopping.” Dalrymple asks for the stories, but George explains there are no stories; when he asks, “Why am I watching it,” George explains, “Because it’s on TV.” Dalrymple quips, “Not yet.” George then storms out citing his “artistic integrity”; despite it all, one of the executives, Susan Ross, likes the idea and plans to champion the show, but then Kramer vomits on her; Jerry thinks the show is dead and George says they should take the idea to different network; Jerry wonders how George ever talked him into going along with it; but NBC calls back and wants to have another meeting; this time George is more flexible and because Dalrymple has a feeling about Jerry and George, and because he places a lot of faith into Susan’s judgment, he says “Let’s make a pilot.” (42)

That's it for another week or so, Seinfeld fans. Keep on coming back for more, keep on telling everyone about this site, and as usual, follow the link on the right to get your name on the book!

The More Obscure, The Better

Greetings. Greetings and salutations. What a day for a ballgame...Let's play two! Well, perhaps not. But one blog entry will be just as nice. I am back, fellow Seinfeld lovers, and I am ready to give you all yet another sneak peak at my book. As I promised last time, this preview will be dedicated to the more obscure entries. I want to make sure that my encyclopedia has everything, and I do mean everything from Seinfeld. So enough chit chat, let's get to it.

Sullivan’s Store where Morty and Helen bought their convertible sofa (43)

John Name of the repairman who fixes Jerry’s refrigerator (25)

Friedrich Brand of air conditioner Kramer buys at a mall in New Jersey (23)

Kekich Party of two called before George, Jerry, and Elaine at Hunan 5th Ave (16)

Leopard Cousin Jeffrey’s favorite animal; he likes the spots (64)

Do I Have to Give Up Me to Be Loved by You One of the books George leaves at Marlene’s apartment; it was written by two PhDs, Jordan and Margaret Paul (6)

So there we have it for yet another week. Hopefully this shows how serious I am to including everything. Nothing is too minute. Thanks for tuning in and remember, sign up and get your name in the book. Just follow the link on the right. Easy as falling off a log. Believe me.

Heads or Tails

Hello once again. Figured it was time I hop back on here and give you all another glimpse of the future.

In the book there will be many entries that have multiple bullet points. This is because a phrase or word comes up in many episodes. For instance:

Flip a Coin
Method Jerry suggests he and George use to determine who will get the great apartment on West 83rd Street; they decide that Jerry will flip, and George will call the “no crying, no guilt, winner takes all” flip; George calls heads, but it comes up tails; George calls interference, for on the way down, the coin hit the counter; George says, “You can’t count that! The coin can’t touch anything! It affects it!” When Jerry says, “You didn’t call no interference,” George responds, “You don’t have to call that! It’s a rule!” (3)
  • When George hears that Elaine is attending a lesbian wedding, he asks, “How do they work the bride and groom on that? What, do they flip a coin?” Elaine scoffs and George asks, “What, was that not politically correct? It’s a legitimate question.” (30)
  • Elaine suggests that George and Mike Moffet flip a coin to decide who gets the parking space they both started to pull into (38)
I'm looking forward to the completion of this book just so I can see how many times a certain thing has been mentioned in the show. Like in how many episodes did "Ketchup" get mentioned or just how many Carols were there?

So that's it for this edition. Be sure to tune in next time when I'll be showcasing some of the more obscure entries.

And as always, be sure to sign up and get your name in the book. The link is on the right.
