A while back I said that the best Curb episodes, like this season's "Vehicular Fellatio," form a complete full circle. Those episodes are almost like a comedy ourobourous, and, for me at least, they're usually the best to watch: surprising, funny, inventive. The fun in the ourobourous episodes is that you know the snake is going to eat its tail—you know that vacuum-sealed packaging is going to surface again at the end of the episode, for example, or you know that you'll see Officer Krupke again—but you're just not sure exactly how it'll happen. Tonight's episode was just one of those full circle episodes, but something about it just felt, well, off. I think my disappointment in the episode hinges on the fact that so much of the episode hinged on the "I'm Larry David and I enjoy wearing women's underwear" joke.
Our mothers all are junkies, Our fathers all are drunks. Golly Moses, natcherly we're punks! We ain't no delinquents, We're misunderstood. Deep down inside us there is good!
The song was composed by Stephen Sondheim lyrics and Leonard Bernstein music , and was featured in both the Broadway musical and subsequent motion picture. The song is sung by members of the street gang the Jets, who poke fun at the gruff Police Sergeant Krupke by singing about the societal forces that led them to join a gang. Following a theme used throughout the musical, the song begins with a tritone on the word " Dear ," held longer to signify its importance. Each verse culminates with an interjection "Golly Moses", "Leapin' lizards" , followed by the final line.
