Jerry Seinfled on mortality, entropy, gravity and television
"The thing about television is that it always wins in the end. Television always wins. In other words, these shows that we had, if we didn’t kill them, they would kill us. It’s not a fair fight. You can subdue it for a period of time, a long period of time, but you know its only getting stronger and you’re getting weaker. And I knew some day,and I didn’t know when it was, it might have been the next season, it might have been the one after, one day this thing was going to smite me down. The trick is to make a neat and graceful exit before it gets that chance."
-- Jerry Seinfeld interviewed by Garry Shandling on The Larry Sanders Show Complete Series DVD.
