“This was supposed to be the ‘Summer of George’!”

(a note to readers before you read on to more Seinfeld-isms below)

This George-ian line inspired the name of the episode at the end of which we find George on a hospital stretcher when he says this line. Hospital and stretcher explain much of the quiet around here since my last post. It’s a testament to the nature of the family emergency (the loved one is okay now) that I didn’t think of this classic line once while I was at the hospital (no, it wasn’t me, but I was there…a lot).

I should have, now that I think about–since the family emergency consumed leave time I’d scheduled for the family vacation. How does that Buffet line go? “If we couldn’t laugh, we would all go insane”?

A few more George-inspired laughs, then, by showcasing all of his lines so far in this compendium of the best that Seinfeld has to offer us in navigating life:

Please, a little respect…for I am Costanza, Lord of the Idiots.

George is gettin’ upset!

Do you ever just get down on your knees and thank God that you know me and have access to dementia?

You know we’re LIVING in a SOCIETY…

We mustn’t disturb the delicate genius!

…there’s not enough voltage in this world to electroshock me back into coherence!


Worlds are colliding!

Is there a pinkish hue?

He’s bebopping and scatting…!

Happy, Pappy?

There’s your “summer,” George! Now I’m going to go regain mine in some fashion and, among other things, soon unpack the next couple of Seinfeld-isms I’ve had in the works–one of which is from George, in a rare moment of kicking sand in Jerry’s face…
