I don't know all the details of why he thinks Jerry had something to do with Kiboshing his deal, but I think Joe also had a script for a TV show he was pitching to NBC.

Divola wants to put the kibosh on Jerry because Jerry supposedly put the kybosh on Divola's deal at NBC.

If you remember in the episodes The Wallet and The Watch George initially passes on the deal at NBC for "Jerry." In the meantime NBC signed a deal with Joe Divola (Russell alludes to this in his apartment when George went up to plead for the show back).

Since Russell and George agree to reduce the amount per episode to $8,000, Russell is forced to remove a show from their pilot line-up. The idea here is that they removed Joe's show in place of "Jerry."

Thus, George and Russell unknowingly put the "kibosh" on Joe Divola's deal with NBC.

Did CJD attempt to kick Jerry's head in or was it just a perpetual threat to do so? I don't recall an actually attempt.

Btw, has anyone else noticed when CJD called Jerry's answering machine he attempted to spit-out the hair in his mouth four times but when Jerry plays the message back on his machine CJD only spits three times?
