Seinfeld

The Revenge - S2-E7

Trivia: The idea of George returning to work and pretending he didn't really quit was based on a real-life incident. Before co-creating "Seinfeld", Larry David once yelled at a "Saturday Night Live" producer and stormed off the set (he was a sketch writer), only to return the following Monday and act as if it never happened. He actually got away with it.

The Chinese Restaurant - S2-E11

Trivia: After Elaine approaches the table and asks for the egg-roll, the customers begin talking amongst themselves. One of the voices belongs to co-creator Larry David, though he wasn't actually sitting at the table.

The Voice - S9-E2

Kramer: They're redoing the Cloud Club.
Jerry: Oh, that restaurant on top of the Chrysler Building? Yeah, that's a good idea.
Kramer: Of course it is. It's my idea.
Jerry: Which part? The renovating the restaurant you don't own part, or the spending the two hundred million you don't have part?

More quotes from Seinfeld

Answer: Composer Jonathan Wolff used a synthesizer, although in seasons 7-9, a real bass is used in addition. Wolff also recorded himself making hundreds of mouth noises, pops, and slaps to add to the synthesized bass licks so that each episode has a different theme. The only real "back-story" is Jerry Seinfeld was having trouble coming up with a theme song and talked to a friend who happened to know Wolff. They wanted to avoid that cheesy late 80's sit-com theme song and Wolff came up with what we enjoy now. Jonathan Wolff has also talked about this further in interviews, recently Reed Dunela interviewed him, so for a fuller account of his story; check out "The Wolff of 116th street".
