Re: Actor Paul Benedict dead at age 70, Jeffersons neighbor
He did the one episode of Seinfeld (The Cartoon) where he was the editor of the New Yorker magazine trying to explain to Elaine the reasoning for printing a cartoon in the mag.....
Mr. Elinoff: Oh! yeah... That's a rather clever jab at inter office politics don't you think?
Elaine: Why is it that the animals enjoy reading the email?
Mr. Elinoff: Well Miss Benes. Cartoons are like gossamer and one doesn't dissect gossamer.
Elaine; Well you don't have to dissect if you can just tell me why this is suppose to be funny?
Mr. Elinoff: Ha! It's merely a commentary on contemporary mores.
Elaine: But, what is the commentary on?
Mr. Elinoff: It's a slice of life.
Elaine: No it isn't.
Mr. Elinoff: Pun?
Elaine: I don't think so.
Mr Elinoff: Vorshtein?
Elaine: That's not a word.....You have no idea what this means do you?
Mr Elinoff: No.
Elaine: Then why did you print it.
Mr. Elinoff: I liked the kitty.
"panic" only comes from having real expectations
