  • >> Stephen: WE'RE BACK WITH AMERICA'S SWEETHEART JERRY

  • SEINFELD.

  • THE BOOK BEGINS IN THE 70s.

  • IT GOES ALL THE WAY UP TO TODAY, INCLUDING THE PANDEMIC.

  • DO YOU-- DO YOU THINK, AS AN OBSERVER OF THE HUMAN CONDITION,

  • DO YOU THINK THIS MOMENT WE'RE IN RIGHT NOW IS GOING TO BE

  • RELATIVE AND APPLICABLE TO OUR LIVES AFTER THIS?

  • OR ARE WE IN, LIKE A MOUNT ZESUVUS MOMENT.

  • NOT EVERY DAY IS POMPEII GETTING BURIED IN LAVA?

  • DO YOU THINK THIS MOMENT RIGHT NOW IS GOING TO BE

  • UNDERSTANDABLE TO THE PEOPLE WHO DIDN'T GO THROUGH IT?

  • IS IT A COMMON ENOUGH HUMAN EXPERIENCE WE'RE HAVING RIGHT

  • NOW?

  • >> YOU KNOW, NOBODY DIDN'T GO THROUGH IT UNLESS YOU'RE BORN

  • FIVE YEARS FROM NOW.

  • >> Stephen: THAT'S WHAT I MEAN.

  • >> NO, IT WON'T BE-- NO.

  • WE DON'T UNDERSTAND WORLD WAR II.

  • THAT'S WHY WE WERE ALWAYS ASKING OUR PARENTS ABOUT IT.

  • BECAUSE WE CAN'T-- WE CAN'T UNDERSTAND IT.

  • AND THEY'LL BE ASKING ABOUT THIS.

  • AND THEY'LL NEVER UNDERSTAND WHAT IT WAS REALLY LIKE IT'S --

  • >> Stephen: WHAT IS IT REALLY LIKE, JERRY?

  • >> YOU KNOW, IT'S-- IT'S REALLY LIKE...

  • THE WHOLE PLANET GETTING DETENTION.

  • AND WHEN YOU GET OUT OF DETENTION, YOU'RE REALLY GOING

  • TO SEE THINGS A LITTLE-- HOPEFULLY YOU'RE GOING TO LEARN

  • TO APPRECIATE A LITTLE BETTER.

  • THAT'S WHAT WE HAVE TO DO.

  • BUT WE PROBABLY WON'T.

  • >> Stephen: MAYBE NOT.

  • BUT IT'S NICE TO HOLD ON TO THAT.

  • >> LET'S TRY.

  • >> Stephen: NICE TO HOLD ON TO THAT HOPE.

  • >> LET'S TRY.

  • LET'S TRY TO APPRECIATE-- I WENT TO A RESTAURANT LAST NIGHT FOR

  • THE FIRST TIME SINCE FEBRUARY.

  • >> Stephen: OKAY.

  • >> AND IT WAS OUTSIDE, BUT EVEN SO, I HADN'T SEEN A MENU OR A

  • WAITRESS IS SINCE FEBRUARY.

  • AND IT WAS THE MOST EXCITING, ODD, STRANGE THING.

  • IT WAS LIKE, WOW!

  • A RESTAURANT.

  • AND THEY BRING THE FOOD AND THE CHECK-- THE CHECK!

  • I GOT A CHECK!

  • ( LAUGHING ) >> Stephen: WHAT DID YOU HAVE?

  • WHAT DID YOU ORDER?

  • WHAT DID YOU ORDER, JERRY?

  • >> YOU KNOW, UHMI THINK IT WAS A TORTELLINI BOLOGNESE.

  • >> Stephen: DO WE HAVE TIME TO GO ANY FURTHER WITH THIS ORDER?

  • WE'RE OUT OF TIME, JERRY.

  • I'M AFRAID WE CAN'T GO ANY FURTHER INTO YOUR ORDER.

  • >> IT WAS GOOD.

  • >> Stephen: AND IT WAS GOOD TO SEE YOU.

  • >> IT WAS GOOD TO SEE YOU.

  • >> Stephen: THANKS FOR BEING HERE.

  • I "IS THIS ANYTHING?" IS AVAILABLE

  • NOW.

  • JERRY SEINFELD, EVERYBODY!

  • WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH A PERFORMANCE BY ELLA MAI.

  • STICK AROUND
