Splicing together all the fragmented "Seinfeld" reunion scenes that appear in "Curb Your Enthusiasm" sounds like a job for lonely netizens with nothing better to do—which apparently describes actor Topher Grace. The That 70s Show and Spider-Man 3 actor has done the lord's work and constructed a 10-minute Seinfeld reunion episode from clips involving cast members scattered across season seven of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
This is actually not the first time Grace has displayed an affinity and skill for supercuts. Back in 2012, he cut together the three Star Wars prequels to create a shorter, more watchable version of all that good backstory in only 84 minutes. For obvious legal reasons, he couldn't share that one online. But for now, his "Seinfeld" reunion survives.
Here's a written treatment of episode, based on the scenes collected by Grace:
George and Jerry argue whether or not it's acceptable to blow your nose in a cloth napkin at a restaurant.
We learn that George is divorced from a woman he apparently married, named Amanda. Plus, he lost the fortune he earned from developing the iToilet to Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme. Jerry implies the divorce stems from George's penchant for blowing his nose in cloth napkins.
Meanwhile, Elaine won't let Kramer babysit the child she apparently raises by herself, and Jerry ruined said child's doll by trimming its hair. Of course, Elaine's child is the result of in vitro fertilization by one Jerry Seinfeld. The daughter has no idea.
In a scene that could easily come from the Modern Seinfeld Twitter account, Jerry is annoyed by Elaine on her blackberry. How is it socially acceptable to text in someone's face? Could you just pick up a magazine while you're having a conversation with someone?
Somehow, George gets back together with Amanda. Amanda gets the Fresh Prince treatment, played by both Cheryl Hines and an actress named Virginia.
Newman is upset with the iToilet. Says Jerry, "My sympathies lie only with the toilet."
George finds out his ex-wife withdrew the money she got from her divorce settlement from Bernie Madoff before the Ponzi scheme came crashing down.
Kramer buys a black doll for Elaine's daughter, who might now think Kramer is her father? This part is unclear.
George reveals that Amanda wants him to sign a prenup, so if they get another divorce, George won't get his Madoff money back. Elaine's winning line: "Are you marrying her for your money?"
George reaches for a cloth napkin at the diner to blow his nose. The gang stops him in unison.
Cue the Seinfeld bassline.
