Seinfeld Watch: Costanza's Dementia (1995)
It was fifteen years ago tonight that George Costanza, after successfully formulating how Jerry Seinfeld could attempt the fabled "roommate switch," asked of his friend: "Do you ever just get down on your knees and thank God that you know me and have access to my dementia?" - George Costanza (Jason Alexader), in the Seinfeld episode, "The Switch" (Original Airdate: January 5, 1995). Although my favorite Costanza episode is "The Opposite" (the fifth season finale which aired May 19, 1994), this is perhaps one of my favorite Costanza moments.
Thirty-something suffering from nostalgia but, thankfully, not from bouts of irony. Here, I will revisit artifacts of popular culture not sufficiently explored elsewhere, though I may perhaps stray from that mission at times.
