Hi All,

Me and a colleague are putting together an animation using CGI Muppets of George and Jerry in the apartment. We want to use a 30-60 second sound clip from seinfeld to animate to - we're looking for a classic Jerry/George bit of dialogue that really shows off both characters well. We've been watching episode after episode trying to find the right piece, but we thought we'd asking on a seinfeld forum for a bit of help - so if anyone's got any suggestions then you're help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Thom

Remember when George built that minature model of the board room and he was trying to figure out what jacked up the briefcase with the tape recorder? George wanted to use Superman as himself but Jerry thought peanut M&M guy was more appropriate.. you should use that. It would be like... well it would be like something

George: She thinks I'm a nice guy. Women always think I'm nice, but women don't like nice. Why is nice bad? What kind of sick society we are living in, when nice is bad?

Jerry: What's that smell? What are you wearing?

George: A little cologne. Monica wants me to wear it.

Jerry: So why didn't you say no?

George: I'm too nice. She wants me to take an IQ test.

Jerry: That's because you're stupid enough to wear the cologne.

George: Yeah, and she's going to find I'm a moron. You know, people think I'm smart, but I'm not smart.

Jerry: Who thinks you're smart?

"The Limo" has one of the lengthiest Jerry/George interactions ever.

Also, having the consistent, less complicated, and low lit environment would make modeling and animation much easier.

I agree with Jimmy on "The Limo". They're like....Laurel and Costello....or someone....Rowan and Marting? Bush and Quayle?

Anyway, you could also do the "Fix up" scene. Where George is asking about her flowing, cascading hair and the pinkish hue.

While Laurel and Costello was a deliberate "mistake", the "g" on the end of "Martin" wasn't.

(looking up to the sky...room spinning)

The Mango has a pretty good, lengthy sequence with Jerry and George right at the beginning. Below the equator, he got the tap. I nominate The Mango.

Not to be confused with Ralph Kramden learning The Mambo.

Wow! thanks so much for the help everyone. I need to rewatch both 'the mango' and 'the fix up' but i vaguely remember the scenes you're referring to and they're excellent. This has been a great mini-project to work on so far - it's given me even more reason to sit around watching seinfeld all day Smile

Thom, you are probably the first person, in three years, who asked a question and received serious, helpful answers. You got balls, man.

Let us see it when it's done.

I'm torn between the "Limo" and "Pinkish-hue." Although, I just thought of the one when Jerry is meeting the attorney in the lobby and George, as always, wants to be presented as an architect.

The latest offering from the Majestic Thom Theatre.... Well I think this will have marvelous production value!

Ya know, Thom, I'd kill for a peek when you're done. I'm a big fan of the genre. I'd consider it a personal favor to me...

It might be a little harder to do, it's not exclusive to George and Jerry, but in the Race when George meets Jerry "by accident" to back up Jerry's claim that he didn't get a head start. That'd be a little more challenging because there are other characters in the scene.

But whichever scene you choose, I really would like to see it when you're done.

Back when threatening to punch a wife's lights out could be laughed at, Ralph would threaten to punch Alice so hard she'd go to the moon. Eventually, this got shortened to "bang, zoom" and he would move his hand upward at an angle as he said "zoom" to indicate her flight path.
