NOTES

"Ghostface Killah and I are discussing a possible collaboration on a music video." --Larry David's answer to Entertainment Weekly's question "Who is your dream collaborator?" 6/28/02

Larry David drives a $20,000 Prius electric hybrid car; he opted for no extra features, which come at an additional cost.

Larry David split an estimated $600 million dollars with Jerry Seinfeld after Seinfeld was sold into syndication.

"The only change I can really see is that I don't have to shop for pants in stores anymore. I can just call up and they'll bring the pants right over to my house. That's no small thing. Trying on pants is one of the most humiliating things a man can suffer that doesn't involve a woman." --David on the changes that come with huge success

"To be honest with you, I think the only thing that really worked in my favor, is that right from the beginning I really didn't give a shit whether or not the show was a success. That's not to say I didn't want to do good work, but I wasn't about to let myself be judged by network standards. When you're not concerned with succeeding, you can work with complete freedom." --David on the success of "Seinfeld"

"You write about what you know." --David on how he came up with the idea for the famous "Contest" episode of "Seinfeld" which dealt with the topic of masturbation.

David once quit SNL in a fury after yet another one of his sketches was cut after the dress rehersal. After reflecting on the money he was giving up that night, David returned to work the next day and pretended like nothing happened. This story was later turned into a "Seinfeld" episode where George quits his job in a huff then shows up in a meeting the next day.

"Larry is very in tune with his own deepest, darkest, most embarrassing thoughts -- and he's utterly unabashed about sharing them." --"Seinfeld" writer Peter Mehlman
