The Higher Being
Kramer and Newman walk through Central Park, Newman complaining about his various physical imperfections. “I’m fat, I stink, and just sitting down causes me to wheeze.” A lean, slow, short man walks past the two. “Hell,” Newman says, “I wish I could have that guy’s body!”
Elaine files her nails while watching television one day, but is so absent-minded about it, she fails to notice that she’s filed away down to her elbow. “Great,” she says. “Just great.” She tries to throw her hands up in resignation, but it’s profoundly dissatisfying.
George stands in Battery Park, Jerry in Inwood. The two start slowly walking toward each other, then jogging a little before reaching a full-tilt run. By the time the two are within sight of each other, each is traveling 0.1c. They jump in the air and collide over 86th street in an incandescent burst of blue, then fall to the ground.
Only one man remains when he rises from the street. With the voice of Jerry, the body of George, and the worst personality traits of both, a more perfect creature remains: Larry David.
