Jerry Seinfeld recently opened up with fans during a Reddit Ask Me Anything (AMA) event. He teased an upcoming “huge” project with ‘Seinfeld’ creator, Larry David, and shared some behind-the-scenes info about ‘Seinfeld’ episodes that could’ve been, but weren’t.

Some highlights from the AMA included:

On the final episode of ‘Seinfeld’: “I was happy with the Seinfeld finale because we didn’t want to do another episode as much as we wanted to have everybody come back to the show we had so much fun with…It was a way to thank all of the people who worked on the show over the years.”

On a secret upcoming project with Larry David: “Most recent was intentional mumbling. We wrote this script for this thing that you will eventually see, but I can’t reveal what it is at this time. All I can do is tell you is that it’s big, huge, gigantic. Even bigger than that Amazon package.”

On using some of the one-liners from his sit-com in real life: “The only line I quote from the show (and I’ll be very impressed if anybody out there remembers this line) is ‘If you’re one of us, you’ll take a bite…I find myself saying that to my kids a lot. It’s a very obscure line, but George was working at some company where they all had lunch together, and he wasn’t trying the apple pie, and the boss finally says ‘If you’re one of us, you’ll take a bite.’ A lot of times kids won’t want to try certain foods, and so I’ll use that line. Sometimes I’ll quote Newman in flames screaming, ‘Oh the humanity.'”

On the handgun episode that never was: “And we started making it and stopped in the middle and said, ‘This doesn’t work…We did the read-through and then canceled it. A lot of other stuff happened, but trying to make that funny ended up being no fun.”
