Stupid Summer Project: The Apology

Jason Hanky: Alright, George, Alright. I'm sorry. I'm very, very sorry. I'm so sorry that I didn't want your rather bulbous head struggling to find its way through the normal sized neck hole of my finely knit sweater.

Puddy: Puddy.
Kramer: Is, ah, David Puddy there?
Puddy: This is Puddy.
Kramer: Well this is Kramer.
Puddy: I know.

Comment: how much new life did David Puddy inject into the final season of Seinfeld? He had a couple of spectacular episodes in season six, and then he became a classic regular in season nine. A great character, played beautifully by Patrick Warburton. Puddy is my favorite supporting character in the entire show's run: he's full of laugh out loud moments.

  1. In the final episode, Puddy had one of the most brilliant moments when Elaine, about to go to jail, told him, "Don't wait for me." He just said, "Okay" and walked away. I fell out of my seat laughing at that.
    Even though I never enjoyed "The Tick" that much (I liked the cartoon better), I thought Warburton was perfectly cast in the lead role. I'm sorry he never seems to get much good work.
