Elaine Benes: Did you find the place alright?
Mohel: Did I find it alright? I mean could you send me to a more dangerous neighborhood? I'm dreading walking back to the subway, someone shouldn't crack me over the head and steal my bag, 'cause I'll be lying there on the street in this neighborhood and people will spit on me and empty my pockets.

The Bris or the Pigman
2 July 2009 | by (Lebanon) – See all my reviews

With all the pigman issue going around and after the famous dialogue between Jerry and Kramer where the latter tells the prior " I'm tellin ya the pigman is alive. The governments been experimenting with pigmen since the fifties.", you get George Costanza's classical comment: " I wish there were pigmen. You get a few of these pigmen walking around I'm looking a whole lot better. Then if somebody wants to fix me up at least they could say, Hey he's no pig-man!"

And you ask me why I love Georgi the most! I could build him a statue and sit to laugh at it all day.

But Jerry also has a unique answer to that : " Believe me, there'd be plenty of women going for the pigmen. No matter what the deformity you'll find some group of perverts attracted to it. Ooo that little tail turns me on."

Can you resist all that?

And when Jerry & Elaine are asked to attend the Bris of the baby they're supposed to be his Godparent, the Mohel accidentally circumcizes Jerry's finger instead of the baby. How about that!

Those people are just magnificent and the whole show is unforgettable.
