Anyone know the inspiration behind J.Peterman? Was the character just a combination of the writing and O'Hurley's spin? He had some fantastically classic lines..

"ONE MOMENT! I am reading a most fascinating article on the most fascinating people of the year... annnnd.. done."

"My neck is a gargantuan monkey fist."

"Elaine, congratulations on a job... done."

"Elaine, up until a few minutes ago, I was convinced I was on the receiving end of the oldest baker's grift in the books - The Enterman's Shim Sham. Until I remembered my security camera, which I installed to catch other Walter using my latrine."

"Elaine, who among us hasn't snuck into the break room to nibble on a love newton?"

"No buts, Elaine. Or I will strip you of your 'associate' status."

"Elaine, I'm afraid I have incurred yet another flat tire."

There is a real J. Perterman of J. Peterman catalog fame. However, from all I've seen, there is no connection or similarity, whatsoever, between the person who IS J. Peterman and the character J. Peterman, as played by O'Hurley.

A dull, drab piece of driftwood that has no purpose, was the inspiration for the tiresome, lifeless, monotonous, nonsensicle, do nothing, say nothing, insignificant, pest of a character.

I just looked at the J.Peterman website. They have Gatsby pants. I am influenced by the things I see so I had no choice but to buy them. Now I can be like the Gatsby's by myself in the comfort of my own home. Size 32/34 Color, original cream, yarn-dyed for richness. Price: $128. God bless you J.Peterman.

everybody has some character they cannot stand. Jimmy's happens to be J. Peterman.

Personally, I like J. Peterman, but I do have a problem with the Seinfelds (except Jerry of course, duh.)

I all seriousness, however, the delivery and timing of both Morty and Helen are nothing short of superlative, IM(H)O, and provide absolutely top-flight comedy.
