I don't know if this topic has been done but I was watching a commercial on tbs for friends and Joey was saying "It's a moo point." That's just totally biting "Statue of Limitiations". Has anyone else come accross things that just bite off Seinfeld?

No one from Seinfeld said it. It was Joey from Friends. He said something like it's a moo point and went one about something about a cow. The point was that the writers of Friends just ripped off Seinfeld and Larry David's "The Statue of Limitations" deal. It's Stachute. It's not a statue. Okay It's a sculpture of limitations. Seinfeld also did the sphenjolly (spelling?) one too.

OK, I'll be the first one to say that "Friends" was a very lame watered down "Seinfeld", but the example you're givng hear is a bit of a stretch. I mean, it's not as if Jerry and Larry invented word-play. I really thought i missed something.
(I know your next asnswer will be "There's something missing alright"...)

And just for the sake of accuracy...It's not "Stachute", it's "Statute".

I saw a commercial for Friends with some girl who might have been Joey's girlfriend laughing very much like "Elmer Fudd sitting on a blender."

"That's a moo point" is REALLY close to "Statue of limitations"???? OK, if you say so...Like I said, I'm probably missing something...but I don't really think so.

Friend's definitely a Seinfeld rip off. That was the first thought that came to mind after watching Friend's for the first time. I made an effort to watch Friend's. And I never...ever...laughed. Seinfeld brought me to tears from laughing so much. Seinfeld has seminal characters who will live forever. Soup Nazi, the Costanza's, Newman, Kenny Banya.And so many more. Friend's has NONE of those. Friend's was watered down, had no edge, required little thought. No contest...Seinfeld all day every day over Friend's.

Nothing new under the sun. Everything is copied from somebody. Flintstones from Honeymooners, Two broke girls from Lavern and Shirley. Don't get me started on Hollywood and their recent "new" movies

Every time you turn on a TV, all you see is four morons sitting round an apartment, whining about their dates!
