I answered them in the same way I answered everyone else

(George raises his hand)


For me, the scene between Jerry and George in the coffee with duncan and lois is the best seinfeld scene ever

George- so do you do a lot of that " did you ever notice stuff"
Jerry- yeah, yeah
George- It seems to me a lot of guys are doing that these days
Jerry- yeah, yeah
a small pause
Jerry- Boy, you really went bald
there didn't ya.
The whole exhnacge between them as they _reunited" was hialrious
Jerry- Duncan and I were talking about the day of the big race
George- oh, yes the big race
Lois- you were there?
George- Oh yes, I'll never forget it , becasue that was the day I lost my virginity to mrs. stafford thee voluptuous homeroom teacher
Duncan- mrs stafford!!
George- yes yes, she came up behind in detention when I was erasing the black board-
Jerry- George!!

It's very obvious that this episode associates Jerry with Superman the most. From his girlfriend's name, to Jerry's witty phrases, to Jerry's heroic wink at the end of the race, Superman is tied to every one of these elements. Also once again, we see George impersonating an architect. This might be one of George's most convincing performances in terms of attempting to pose as someone with the job he has always desired. Funny how we don't really see how the relationship ends with Elaine and Ned.

i agree, Timmy. what a great scene!
"Did you see the new addition to the Gugenheim?"
"you designed that?"
"yeah...didn't take that long either."

as for you, kate...i'm pretty sure that was the theme from Superman the movie.

The music is the Superman Theme, by John Williams. He has composed a lot of music for movies, including Star Wars, Superman, E.T., and Indiana Jones.

Here is a complete set:

Just for the record, Jimmy didn't write the above post (doo doo...chee, chee), nor does Jimmy even understand what the hell it's supposed to mean.

Seems funny to answer a question posted 8 months ago. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Yes, like W31DO said, the music is by 'Vangelis'from the movie "Chariots of Fire". He also scored the music for "Missing", "Bladerunner" and "The Bounty" (Mel Gibson). Perfect music for the race as "Chariots" was a movie about two british sprinters, one a Jew and one a Christian, competing in the 1924 Olympics. I have the album with this theme.

How can you be so ignorant?
It is most certainly not "Chariots of Fire."
It is in deed, as mentioned before, the Superman Theme written by the great John Williams.

Does anyone else think the plain secretary gets progressively better looking over the course of the two shows she's in?
