Why do I bring this up now, years after the final season? Because I just finished watching Season 5 on DVD. In the “Inside Look” commentary on the season’s last episode (“The Opposite”), Seinfeld has this to say:
My favorite part of that was in the coffee shop scene, the line “If everything you do is wrong, then the opposite would have to be right.” Which, you know, even as the character I knew I was just leading him down the primrose path. You know, but that always fun for me to do, to kind of pave the way when he [George] has an awful idea, I wanna do as much, as best as I can to get him to pursue it, for my own entertainment.I feel vindicated.
