Oh the humanity! (Seinfeld quote)
The Pothole from season 8 has a Newman scene that is forever burned in our memory. While driving, singing a Newmanesque version of Three Times a Lady, his truck suddenly is surrounded by flames. He then quotes the radio reporter Herbert Morrison from the famous Hindenburg disaster: "Oh, the humanity!"
The Pothole is the episode where Jerry knocks his girlfriend Jenna's toothbrush into the toilet and don't tell her before she uses it, and Kramer adopts apart of the highway.
Here is the Herbert Morrison report combined with footage of the disaster.
Here is Lionel Richie and the Commodores performing Three Times a Lady in the late 70's. Look at the costumes. Those were the days!
