    There actually was a Pixar film where a cockroach was played up as being cute. In the film Wall-E the main robot character befriends a cockroach named Hal that appears throughout the film.

    I think the Potsie/ Happy Days joke was more making fun of the fact that the characters were acting juvenile, rather than acting like sitcom characters. That’s why Jerry says he has to clean the apartment before his parents come home.

    I always listen to podcasts at 1x! I’ve tried 1.25x but then everyone sounds like chipmunks… Doesn’t listening at 1.25x just make it more difficult to be patient when listening to people talk in person/real time??

    PLEASE move the podcast to a later time in the week. It can just be so difficult to listen to the episode and get the comments submitted in time.

    Another good episode, but I’m having trouble remembering everything from this week because I had to listen to the cast in parts, which kind of makes it hard to remember. If I think of anything else I will post it.

    When Rob and Akiva are talking about the episode title they say that we don’t even see the doodle, but this is not true, Elaine holds it up to Jerry and it’s right there on camera.

    IMO, the reason the Seinfelds act so out of character in the hotel suite is that when they enter it, Jerry tells them that it’s all taken care of and that everything is covered. They take this to mean that it’s “all expenses paid” and “everything is included”. Normally Morty and Helen would never splurge like this, but they know Jerry is not paying for the hotel, and that Elaine’s “employer” is paying for everything, so they take a few extras. And once they take a few, it becomes easier to take more, until they’re enjoying every possible extra being offered. It’s like Rumspringa, when young Amish people go out into the real world when they turn 18 (?) – some of them don’t like what they see and come back to their Amish life, but others get into a kind of sensory overload and overindulge in everything they were denied. The Seinfelds’ experience is like this.
