Urban Talmud

Nach dem Besuch beim Herrenausstatter (Seinfeld 7.19):

JERRY: So to get out of the store I told him I wanted to see what someone else thought and then he makes a face like he doesn’t believe me.
ELAINE: Oh, so he knew you were making it up.
JERRY: Yeah, he caught me. So here is what I want you to do: come back with me to the store and we’ll pretend to look at the coat.
ELAINE: That’s ridiculous! Why do you want to go back there if you don’t want the coat?
JERRY: Because he thinks I was lying, I want to show him I wasn’t.
ELAINE: But you were.
JERRY: Well, if you go back with me, then I’m not.

Der ganze Abgrund des Moralisierens, und man ist erst bei den Absichten.
