According to Julia Louis-Dreyfus
, the key to the comedy in her dancing was to look as ridiculous as possible while keeping her face full of confidence and thorough enjoyment. It was important to her to look like a fool but also be funny. In this sense, in spite of the fact that she was deliberately dancing poorly, she was going for a feeling of humiliation, as she wanted people to laugh at her more than with her. See more
When Brody says he's coming up, the door is closed. Then, when Jerry and Kramer are panicking to watch the tape, the door behind them is inexplicably slightly ajar. But when Brody arrives the door is closed and he has to open it to get in. See more
I don't care about Brody. I was up on 96th Street today, there was a kid couldn't have been more than ten years old. He was asking a street vendor if he had any other bootlegs as good as Death Blow. That's who I care about. The little kid who needs bootlegs, because his parent or guardian won't let him see the excessive violence and strong sexual content you and I take for granted.
