The Seven Best Quotes From Jerry Seinfeld & Larry David's New Online Video

Here's the first episode of Jerry Seinfeld's web series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, in which he and Larry David get in a 1952 VW Beetle and go get breakfast at John O Groats in Los Angeles. There is much discussion of food, from salads to free range chickens to whether it actually matters if you're drinking coffee or tea. It's not embeddable, but here are some choice quotes — and do go watch the rest.

Larry David: "The lunch at a normal American restaurant is very problematic for me. I don't like to have hot foods for lunch."
Jerry Seinfeld: "A salad?"
LD: "Yeah, a salad, but there's not much in a salad."
JS: "What do you love?"
LD: "For lunch?"
JS: "Yeah."
LD: "I'll usually have a salad."

LD: "Then I'll have a protein shake."
JS: "Where do you get that?"
LD: "In a store...the answer was equally as stupid as the question."

JS: "I ordered soup the other day. Somebody said that's all you're going to get? What the hell do you care!"

LD on whether it matters if you drink coffee or tea: "Look, I got it in a cup. You don't know what it is. So if this is tea rather than coffee, a person should find that so disturbing?"

JS on whether it matters if you drink coffee or tea: "We go to an ice cream shop, I get a cone, and you get a salad. That's the difference. And you go, 'What? I'm eating, you're eating.' It's the mood!"

LD: "I'll be at a dinner party. They're serving let's say chicken, okay? Normally I won't eat chicken."
JS: "What the hell is wrong with chicken?"
LD: "High in cholesterol...And if it's not free range chicken there's a lot wrong with it."
JS: "How much you think these chickens really enjoy that range? You think they're going out there like a palamino?"
LD: "I think they're enjoying it a lot more than that little cage where they're shitting on each other."

JS on how many slices of pizza he can eat: "I'll have six if I want. When I decide to go, when I pull that pin, when I throw that grenade."
LD: "Me when I go out of control it's half a bag of raw cashews."
