TV Quote of the Day (‘Seinfeld,’ on High School Gym, or ‘Lord of the Flies for 40 Minutes’)

“Any day that you had gym was a weird school day. You know what I mean? Because it, like, started off kind of normal. You'd have, like, English, geometry, social studies, and then suddenly, you're like in Lord of the Flies for 40 minutes, you know? You're hanging from a rope. You have hardly any clothes on. Teachers are yelling at you, ‘Where's your jockstrap?’ You know, and kids are throwing dodge balls at you. You're trying to survive. Then it's history, science, language. There's something off in the whole flow of that day.”—Comedian Jerry Seinfeld, Seinfeld, Season 3, Episode 5, “The Library,” original air date Oct. 16, 1991, teleplay by Larry David, Jerry Seinfeld, and Larry Charles, directed by Joshua White
