‘I will show you the Stooges’


Variety reporter Jeff Sneider’s news that Sofia Vergara of “Modern Family” was in talks for the female lead in the upcoming “Three Stooges” pic immediately took me back to this episode of “Seinfeld” with Gina Gallego.

The clip above isn’t the exact one I was looking for, but it sets the tone for what followed:

GINA: I do not like your toothbrush. There are no bristles.

JERRY: You can say what you want about me, but I’ll be damned if I’m going to stand here while you insult my toothbrush.

GINA: It is too small for someone with such a big mouth [kisses Jerry]. Let me ask you. What will you do if Martin wakes up? Run away like a mouse?

JERRY: No, more like the Three Stooges at the end of every movie.

GINA: Who are these Stooges you speak of?

JERRY: They’re a comedy team.

GINA: Tell me about them. Everything.

JERRY: Well, they’re three kind of funny looking guys and they hit each other a lot.

GINA: You will show me the Stooges?

JERRY (in her accent): I will show you the Stooges.
