Seinfeld 9/11 Spec Script Author Says Episode Should've Existed, but Couldn't Have

A version of this article originally appeared on EW.com.

Writer and comedian Billy Domineau has stumbled into viral fame after posting a Seinfeld spec script that imagines how its well-known sitcom characters would have reacted to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The 44-page episode, titled "The Twin Towers," perfectly channels what Domineau sees as the "nihilistic, no-hugging-no-learning nature of the show" by focusing on how the core characters each react selfishly to the national catastrophe: Jerry develops a paranoia about dust, Elaine tries to break up with a survivor she's seeing, George masquerades as a first responder, and Kramer discovers his friend was one of the terrorists behind the attacks.

It's certainly a shocking subject matter, but one that Domineau says he was very careful to write about in a non-offensive way and contextualized in the voice of the show.

Jerry Seinfeld's small-screen alter ego on Seinfeld had plenty to feel good about: He had a loyal (if eccentric) group of friends, a successful career (good enough to buy his parents a new Cadillac), and a dating life that would put even the most devoted Tinder users to shame.

Khloé Kardashian is going for a ride with Jerry Seinfeld in his popular Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee web series – well … sort of.

Funnywoman Maya Rudolph will impersonate the 5-ft., 10-in. Kardashian sister, on Tuesday's episode of Marty & Maya during a fictional "lost episode" segment of Seinfeld's show that showcases "people who are not only funny, but just people who think they're funny."

"I'm pretty much known as the funniest Kardashian," Rudolph-as-Kardashian boasts in the clip, her head towering out of Seinfeld's convertible. "But I'm not just the funny one, I'm also the tall one."

Well before James Corden turned "Carpool Karaoke" into a viral hit, Jerry Seinfeld was mining mobile entertainment for laughs. Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, his offbeat, intimate talk show that is conducted in a vintage vehicle (and includes a pit stop for caffeine/foodstuff) returns for an eighth season of ridesharing – and story sharing – between humorists, who have included everyone from Steve Martin to Don Rickles to Tina Fey to Louis C.K. (And let's not forget President Obama.)

"It seems all I have to do is sit down with someone that interests me and interesting conversations just happen," Seinfeld, 62, tells Entertainment Weekly. "I have no cards, I have no notes. Something we just can't stop … Comedians are very chatty, very inquisitive. They're like watch-repair people: They like to take everything apart." Here, he takes us under the hood of season 8 – the premiere of which is now available on Crackle – by previewing all six episodes, before reflecting an installment from the first season that featured an old friend.

One of Garry Shandling's final screen appearances before his unexpected death Thursday at age 66 came on his longtime friend Jerry Seinfeld's web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.

Although the episode, released in January, bears the now-melancholy title "It's Great That Garry Shandling Is Still Alive," it also stands as a fitting tribute to a sharp and insightful comic mind.
