Thanks to WordPress’s really cool technology, I can see that a bunch of readers were referred here from another blog (at Reason.com) – which had hyperlinked the terms “cache out the yin-yang” to my little ramblins’.
However, I really didn’t get into discussing that Seinfeldian quote – which is one of my favorites.
Courtesy of my very good friends at Seinfeldscripts.com, here’s the scene:
[Blogger’s Note: George has recommended “Soda” as a baby name to Susan’s cousin, but the cousin didn’t like the idea. He told Susan privately that he had already chosen “Seven” as the name for their first child, boy or girl. Susan did not like this idea, despite the name being a tribute to New York Yankees great Mickey Mantle. And we fade up…
George and Susan are having dinner.
GEORGE: Aw c’mon. It’s a fantastic name. It’s a real original, nobody else is gonna have it and I absolutely love it.
SUSAN: Well, I dunno how original it’s gonna be any more.
GEORGE: Why not?
SUSAN: Well I was telling Carrie about our argument, and when I told them the name, they just loved it.
GEORGE: So, what’re you saying?
SUSAN: They’re gonna name their baby Seven.
GEORGE: (disbelief) What?! They’re stealing the name?! That’s my name, I made it up!
SUSAN: I can’t believe that they’re using it.
GEORGE: (anger) Well now it’s not gonna be original! It’s gonna lose all its cache!
SUSAN: I dunno how much cache it had to begin with.
GEORGE: (rage) Oh, it’s got cache, baby! It’s got cache up the yin-yang!!!
