George Likes Spicy Chicken

Michelle reminded me that my dentist episode yesterday - like most things - can be likened to an episode of Seinfeld. I'll make sure I'm tucked.





Excerpts from Seinfeld - The Jimmy

Kramer: So you got any cavities?

Jerry: Just one....gotta go back.....Oh but get this. Elaine, you will appreciate this. I'm sitting in Tim Whatley's waiting room...He's got a Penthouse right out on the table.

Elaine: Penthouse?

Jerry: Yeah!!! What is that? I mean isn't that sick. I mean , I'd be embarrassed to have that in my apartment.

Kramer: So what's wrong with that?

Jerry: (outraged) He's a doctor!.I mean it's supposed to be like a sterile environment.

Kramer: So... Did you take a look?

Jerry: Of course.... But that's got nothing to do with it.

Kramer: Well I'll tell you I'm looking forward to my appointment on Thursday. I might even get there a few minutes early.

....................

Jerry: Looks like he gave you some Novocaine

Kramer: Ohhh H'am loaded.

Jerry: So what about the Penthouse. Did you ask him?

Kramer: Well he said that humm.. you know.that it helps his pathients relax a little bit..and he's got a new polithy: Adults only.

Jerry: Adults only?

Kramer: Yeah!!!

Jerry: What the hell's going on over there?

Kramer: Well you know its.. great. You know, no kids ..allowed. you don't have to watch your language.

Jerry: You find you need to use a lot of obscenities at the dentist.

Kramer: He..he... When they pull that needle out I let the expletives fly.

Kramer reaches for a glass of water and drinks but manages to have it spill out on to the floor.

....................

Tim Whatley's dental office. Jerry is sitting in the chair.

Whatley: Sheryl, would you ready the Nitro, please?

Whatley inhales the gas mask before handing it over to Jerry.

Jerry: Oh! where's Jennifer today?

Whatley: OH!! She's over at Dr.Cessman's office. We find it fun to swap now and then.

Scene cuts to Monks. Jerry and Elaine are talking.

Elaine: ....Maybe you were still under the gas.Maybe you were hallucinating you're coming out of the gas but you were still under the gas.

Jerry: I don't think so. I think they were getting dressed and not only that; my shirt was out!!!

Elaine: Your shirt was out?

Jerry: I think so.

Elaine: Well, what kind of shirt was it.?

Jerry: You know! Like a tennis shirt.

Elaine: Oh! Well ... You don't tuck those in?

Jerry: Sometimes I tuck'em sometimes I don't.

Elaine: Well. Were you tucked?

Jerry: I think I was tucked!

Elaine: All right then say you were. I mean...what do you think could have happened?

Jerry: I don't know but I was spitting out and rinsing like there was no tomorrow.

Elaine: Ughhhh.

Jerry: Is this guy a dentist or Caligula?

Elaine: What are you gettin'?

Jerry: I don't think I'm hungry.

Elaine: Okay...So you were violated by two people while you were under the gas. So What? You're single.

Jerry: But I'm damaged goods now.

Elaine: Join the club.

So there's that,

One of the many things that I LOVE about Seinfeld is that there are sooo many layers to the show. Each episode is great, and you watch it and you think...OH I FORGOT THAT WAS IN THAT EPISODE TOO. For instance when I read the script, I instantly remembered this was also the episode that Kramer was mistaken to be a mentally challendged man because of the dentist, and The Jimmy punching him. I would love to watch Seinfeld with you.

I know! My favorite line in the episode is "George likes spicy chicken," so I had to make that the title. I guess a more apt title would have been, "Is this guy a dentist or Caligula?"

Maybe in my next post.
