While watching this episode, did you notice a striking similarity between Estelle Costanza’s shirt (shown while George is bringing boxes into the living room) and jerry's puffy shirt that he is forced to wear? Looks like to me Estelle had a jumpstart on the pirate look!

Just watched it - courtesy of Stan's torrents (thank you thank you thank you) - and loved it. What a classic!

Kramer's "Aye Captain!" made me wet my pants. And the whole "hands" scene with George and the director was staggering: "he was dependent on cub scouts to feed him"...I haven't laughed so hard for ages...well not since the last Seinfeld or Curb your Enthusiasm that I saw. Smile

FRANK: Look at this, George. (Takes a coin out of his pocket) You ever seen a silver dollar?
GEORGE: Yes, I've seen a silver dollar.

Oh, how I wish I'd been there...

ESTELLE: "Georgie...Georgie, would you like some Jell-O?"

FRANK: "Why'd you put the bananas in there!"

ESTELLE: "George likes the bananas!"

George frolicking through Central Park upon the windfall of his first paycheck is CLASSIC. My boys and I frolick similarly there when we visit! Ha! Smile

Hands down my favorite episode! Absolutely brilliant, from start to finish! Laughing

JERRY: Where I go? You mean she was asking me to wear this ridiculous shirt on national TV, and I said 'Yes'?!
KRAMER: Yes, yes! You said it!
JERRY: But, I - I didn't know what she was talking about. I couldn't hear her!

JERRY: Look, it's not my shirt.
BRYANT GUMBAL: (Confused) Whose shirt is it?
JERRY: What's the difference? I agreed to wear it. It's - it's a puffy shirt. I feel ridiculous in it, and I think it's the stupidest shirt I've ever seen, to be perfectly honest with you.
LESLIE: (Off camera, yelling) You bastard!
BRYANT: (To Jerry) Did you hear that?
JERRY: (Pointing off screen, nodding) THAT I heard.

Jerry: That benefit was the worst show I ever did. Some of those heckles were really uncalled for: "Avast ye matey" - what the hell does that mean?! "20 degrees off the starboard side - the Spanish Galleon!" - there's no comeback for that!

Curb your Enthusiasm sucks. I know it's Larry David, but it's not funny. No wonder why HBO doens't didn't pick it up anymore. It's just so bland.

The average moron doesn't "get" Curb Your Enthusiasm because there's no laugh track telling them when they should laugh. It's a brilliant show, just takes a little intelligence to understand, that's all.

Did anyone see the news item where the original Puffy Shirt was donated to some big museum? The article I saw had a quote from the costume designer, to the effect that she tried to make it as "uncomfortable and unwearable" as she could!
