I don't know if anyone else gets these shows on Fox, but Seinfeld at 10:00 had the episode where the rental car agency doesn't hold Jerry's reservation (which also featured the "These pretzels are making me thirsty" storyline), and then at 10:30 the Drew Carey Show had the skit episode where Jenny McCarthy was Drew's mom, and Lewis and Oswald's pants exploded when she started licking the popsicle.

I just had to share that. Lewis and Oswald's pants exploding is one of the funniest sitcom moments ever.

You actually take time away from the Planet to watch TV?

I agree. When everything else on that show was sliding downhill, I'd still tune in to watch those two.

Elaine: Okay, what about a cold compress? They always do that.

Jerry: I don't have a washcloth.

Elaine: Well use a paper towel.

Jerry: You can't put a paper towel on his head.

Kramer: What about a big sponge?

Jerry: How you gonna hold it on there?

Kramer: Use a belt.

Elaine: No no no no no, that'll, it'll drip all over him.

Jerry: Should we walk him around?

Elaine and Kramer (at the same time): Yes, yes.

Kramer: Yeah, I've seen them do that.

Jerry: No, no that's for a drug overdose.

Kramer: Maybe that's what he's got.

Elaine: No no no no, Kramer, I just had lunch with him, he didn't leave the table.

Kramer: Well he could have dropped acid when you weren't looking.

That's a classic episode. Right up there with the doll that looks like George's Mom, The Maestro and The Contest.

At the car rental counter

Jerry: Seinfeld. I made a reservation for a mid-size, and she's a small. I'm kidding around, of course.

Agent: Okay, let's see here.

Agent: I'm sorry, we have no mid-size available at the moment.

Jerry: I don't understand, I made a reservation, do you have my reservation?

Agent: Yes, we do, unfortunately we ran out of cars.

Jerry: But the reservation keeps the car here. That's why you have the reservation.

Agent: I know why we have reservations.

Jerry: I don't think you do. If you did, I'd have a car. See, you know how to take the reservation, you just don't know how to *hold* the reservation and that's really the most important part of the reservation, the holding. Anybody can just take them.

Agent: Let me, uh, speak with my supervisor.

The agent goes into an office with a window in the door so she can be seen speaking with someone.

Jerry: Uh, here we go. The supervisor. You know what she's saying over there?

Elaine: What?

Jerry: Hey Marge, you see those two people over there? They think I'm talking to you, so you pretend like you're talking to me, okay now you start talking.

Elaine: Oh, you mean like this? So it looks like I'm saying something but I'm not really saying anything at all?

Jerry: Now you say something else and they won't yell at me 'cause they thought I was checking with you.

Elaine: Okay, that's it. I think that's enough, see you later.

The agent returns.

Agent: I'm sorry, my supervisor says there's nothing we can do.

Jerry: Yeah, it looked as if you were in a real conversation over there.

Agent: But we do have a compact if you would like that.

Jerry: Fine.

Agent: Alright. We have a blue Ford Escort for you Mr. Seinfeld. Would you like insurance?

Jerry: Yeah, you better give me the insurance, because I am gonna beat the hell out of this car.

Awesome.

I watched that Seinfeld yesterday as well. The reservation scene is hilarious.

"I know what the reservation is for."
"I don't think you do."

Drew Carey Show had the skit episode where Jenny McCarthy was Drew's mom, and Lewis and Oswald's pants exploded when she started licking the popsicle.

Whoa... I've never seen that one.

When the Drew Carey show first started, I watched it religiously... then, at some point, I completely lost interest. It's weird. Now if I stumble upon an ep in syndication, I'll watch it.

Haha. That was a great line.

I like when the paramedics show up... "Who put cookies in his mouth?"
