While we found a few references to Seinfeld in Safire's columns, we were more amused by the mention of Safire in season six Seinfeld episode "The Big Salad" (first aired September 29, 1994] in which George Costanza's girlfriend Julie (played by Michelle Forbes), during lunch at Monk's Cafe, mentions "I like Anna Quindlen's column. And Safire. Don't you like Safire? ... Although at times he can be a bit pedantic," which in turn inspires George to expound upon the pronunciation and spelling of Atlanta Falcons quarterback Bobby Hebert's surname, which he says is "a fun name to pronounce" without the expected "r."
