In The Handicap Spot, Jerry's original opening monologue was about his friend getting married. In syndicated reruns, however, the episode has a monologue about handicap spots being the mirage of the parking desert. Why was it changed in syndication and WHERE CAN I FIND IT??? (It's NOT listed in any scripts of that episode!) Confused

I see all of you can't be as smart as you seem, since nobody knows the answer to my question. Oh well. . .

Oh yeah, since I'm leaving:

You're all really unintelligent for not having the guts nor the knowledge to answer my question. I'm ashamed of all of you. Get your act together, friends. Goodbye.

It's almost impossible to find that, wait for the DVDs, they will have the original NBC versions.

I'm talking about the syndicated version. It has a different monologue. If you look under scripts on this site, under The Handicap Spot, it will show the original. But it's a different monologue than the actual one in syndicated versions of the episode!

REPLY IF YOU KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT

Jose, do you mean you have the monologue I'm talking about? The one where Jerry says "The handicap parking space is like the mirage of the parking desert" and stuff about the Special Olympics? Or do you mean a different one?

Ok, a couple things here. First, I know what your talking about, I'm just not going to go and find it when you can but are too lazy.

Second, how are you going to call us unintelligent for not finding it when you didn't??

Third, if you say you're going to leave, then leave.

Fourth, to prove that I know it here it is..


The handicap parking spot is the mirage of the parking desert. You know the feeling. You see it in the distance, there it is. You can't believe your eyes, "It's too good to be true.A big, wide spot, and it's right by the entrance. Somehow, everybody missed it." And then when you pull up, wait- it wasn't even there. There's nothing. It's like you were hallucinating. "I, I thought there was a spot there. I, I don't know what happened... I-"
What is the handicap parking situation at the Special Olympics? They must have to stack like a thousand cars into those two spots. How else can they do it?


There it is, so now you have it, and you can leave.

And so now that you have it, do you know WHY it's aired instead of the original one in syndication?

The Forum-quit is like knocking over a coke machine. You can't do it in one shot, you gotta rock it back and forth until it falls over.

Jimmy's looking like he took that coke machine down in one motion though.

Troy, of course I know. I work at TBS and make those decisions. I also work at your local FOX station and make those decisions.
