I don't know why I find it so funny, but I love it when Seinfeld makes up names.

Scene #1:

GEORGE: "Fragile Frankie Merman? I never liked that guy."
JERRY: "Why? He's harmless."
GEORGE: "Every summer you guys went to camp together. I was jealous. Felt
like he was the summer me."
JERRY: "He was not the summer you. Besides, you had a summer me. Whitey Fisk,
the guy who snuck you into Last Tango in Paris."
GEORGE: "I made him up."
JERRY: "So you never saw Last Tango in Paris?"
GEORGE: "No."
JERRY: "Too bad. It was erotic."

Scene #2:

(Jerry enters, with his bag over his shoulder.)

GEORGE: Hey look, he's back.
JERRY: I got your message, (sitting) so I came straight from Atlantic City.
HELEN: Jerry, Kramer called Bally's. You weren't registered.
JERRY: (extemporising) Well, I can't stay under my own name. I was registered under Slappy White.

The Pinball Wizard

Whenever I'm in a competitive environment, I think of the narrator from Pinball Wizard:

I thought I was
The Bally table king.
But I just handed
My pinball crown to hiiiiiiiiim

Even at my favoriate table
He can beat my best
His disciples lead him in
And he just does the rest.
He's got crazy flipper fingers
Never seen him fall
That deaf dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball
