Le marathon de New York chez Seinfeld

En préparation (psychologique et mentale) du marathon de New York, je commence à re-re-re-visionner Seinfeld, les 9 saisons par ordre chronologique, de façon à me mettre dans l'ambiance new-yorkaise.
On trouve d’ailleurs le marathon de New York dans l’épisode 9 (diffusé le 4 avril 1991), « The Apartment ».

Elaine, Jerry, et Georges sont invités à regarder le marathon de l’appartement d’une amie, sur 1st Avenue (marathon auquel Kramer a « encore oublié » de s’inscrire) :
ELAINE: I don't mean to interrupt or anything, but on Sunday, my friend is having a brunch for the New York Marathon.
KRAMER: Oh, I keep forgetting to enter that.
ELAINE: She lives right above First Avenue, and says she has a perfect view of the race. And she said I can invite some friends

Le moins que l’on puisse dire c’est que Jerry n’est pas très porté sur le marathon :

JERRY: Well, better load up on some carbos before the race. (Starts selecting food from the tables)
ROXANNE: Oh, the marathon is great, isn't it?
JERRY: Oh, yes. Particularily if your not in it.
ROXANNE: I wish we had a view of the finish line.
JERRY: What's to see? A woman from Norway, a guy from Kenya, and twenty thousand losers.

(Grete Waitz venait de terminer sa série de 9 victoires au marathon de New York)

C’est dans cette épisode que Georges a sa fameuse réplique « So please, a little respect. For I am Costanza. Lord of the Idiots! » :

(Jerry walks over to George)
JERRY: You have no idea what an idiot it. Elaine just gave me a chance to get out and I didn't take it. (Points to himself) This is an idiot.
GEORGE: Is that right? (Showing him up) I just threw away a lifetime of guilt-free sex and floor seats for every sporting event in Madison Square Garden. So please, a little respect. For I am Costanza. Lord of the Idiots!
ROXANNE: (Yelling out the window) You're all winners!
GEORGE: But suddenly, a new contender has emerged…

(And BTW, yes, we’re all winners !)
