serpent_sky: Mugato: Now George's place was about the same and he was on again off again unemployed.

Didn't he have to move back in with his parents at one point?

While he was unemployed a lot, when he was employed, he usually had good, high-paying jobs.

Kramer is much harder to explain... It seems like they didn't go much into it but he probably ran a lot of scams and schemes to get by.  He also generally ate out of Jerry's apartment at all times.


When he was employed, he spent big baby!

That was...wow...just...wow.


That pretty much demonstrates just how uncomfortable it was in the How I Met Your Mother finale when, right after they revealed that the mother had been dead for 6 years, Ted's daughter encouraged him to go bone Aunt Robin, with a really loud laugh track accompanying it. Even if worked from a story perspective, the tone of the scene was thrown off horribly by the laugh track.

Wellon Dowd: Today I learned that Mad Men is a sitcom.


and apparently set in 2014, according to the pay/rent

unless the numbers are adjusted for inflation, and the "author" of this piece failed to mention that somewhere

it MUST be adjusted, because there is NO WAY al bundy pulled in over $1500/month in 1988 dollars

Also, of all the stupid things to talk about, this is right up there. The living spaces aren't realistic because...wait for it...they're filming a TV show on a sound stage! They aren't real places with real rent, they're, as they say, enlarged to show detail and to make it possible to film.

Oddly enough they don't make many shows about people to poor to have someplace to live.

One thing you have to admire about Woody Allen movies is that he seems to get the cramped apartment spaces more right than anyone else.

Phins: serpent_sky: Gig103: How about Penny living across the hall? Even a one-bedroom would be probably 2/3 the $1700 estimate, so $1100/mo on a waitress salary?

I've also wondered why Leonard and Sheldon need to be roommates, with Leonard dealing with all of Sheldon's quirks, if he could have a place just like Penny's on his own.

(I move a lot. These things get to me. I know the show wouldn't work otherwise. Haha.)

The theme from "Friends" always bugged me about how "broke" they are (rent controlled or not)...  also that building has massive disparity in apartments when you look at Monica and Rachael's versus the one across the hall the guys live in.  No building in NYC has a huge, gorgeous spread out apartment like the girls and then that little dingy one across the hall.

There was one episode where Sheldon said that all of his monthly expenses were only ~45% of his salary. But in another episode, he said that he would live alone if he could afford the rent himself.

No, I don't watch that much television, I just have a really good memory.


First, afford means different things than whether one can technically scrape by. I can do a half million dollar home. I don't consider it affordable.

Second sheldon's roomate takes on his commuting costs and half the rent/utilities, so even at its most technical the two of sheldon's statements could be true.

I looked it up, he had an office in the basement that was accessable through a door on the street. Claire was a partner in her law firm, so she probably could take off whenever she wanted

Homer Simpson is pulling in almost $80k?

And Don Draper was on a ton more than $150k , his living room is probably 1000 square feet and he got (IIRC) $500,000 in 1960's cash for his share of Stirling Cooper. He could afford a pretty nice pad..

The thing about Friends that bugged me was that they'd be sitting around the coffee house in the middle of a weekday, when one would assume they'd be at work. I seem to recall Joey mentioning it one time when everyone was talking about their bosses not liking them. Also...Ross. Didn't like him.

serpent_sky: skozlaw: It was heavily implied numerous times throughout the series that Jerry Seinfeld made considerably more money than you would expect just from looking at his career from the outside. In all likelihood, Jerry was paying only a relatively small fraction of his actual income in rent.

Like when he bought the Cadillac for his father like it was nothing, or never seemed to want for anything,


jerry, on the show, seemed to be the kind of guy who, no matter how much money he made, had no need for a big fancy house/apartment or most worldly possessions. he was a perpetual bachelor who would rather spend his money outside the house.

in real life, i have no idea what his house is like, but i do know he has a car collection

phalamir: Mr. Coffee Nerves: I still want to know why three surgeons/officers had to share a single tent on M*A*S*H* while Klinger got an entire tent to himself for his wardrobe.

Why did two jag-offs and a complete twat, who between the three of them could give everyone in the camp a compelling reason under the UMCJ to slowly torture them unto death, but the guy who ran the office where all the logistical paperwork originated got his own tent?  Nope, can't think of a single reason.


To make matters more interesting you've got to take into consideration the changes in jobs for Klinger.

If you recall, Radar lived in his office or at least he slept there and Klinger was just a lowly corpsman with his own tent.  I think when Klinger got the promotion to company clerk he moved into the office, giving up his own tent.

The article says he's a Nuclear Safety "instructor", which I don't think is right. I think he's head of safety in the plant, which probably requires at least a masters in engineering. Which of course Homer doesn't have but he must have gotten the job through some comical means. The salary is probably about right.

Real life Jerry has an internet show where he talks to other comics as they drive around. One episode he picked the guest up in a DeLorean. It broke down during the interview so he used his other one. I don't know if that was a bit or real but just the idea of having one DeLorean is pretty cool.

I always loved the Honeymooners apartment. The window looked out on an air shaft. There was a cloth covering the space below the kitchen sink. 2 1/2 rooms. It looked reasonable that a bus driver lived there.

That was for his original job (handling isotopes). He was promoted in the 3rd episode after complaining about the lack of safety in the plant. Of course I wouldn't be surprised if this promotion came with no raise or pay increase (typical of Mr. Burns), and workplace accidents have doubled every year since Homer got the job, so he probably isn't getting any bonuses.

Plus the author forgot that Abe Simpson sold the old family house to help Homer pay for his (and Homer shipped him off to a retirement home 3 weeks later), so the mortgage is much lower than it would be on a house that isn't paid for.

i know you didn't say it was like getting a rolls or bentley, and i didn't mean to imply you said that...although after i hit "add comment" i thought twice about my comment...so, sorry :)

but apparently there was quite a stockpile of original parts when the dmc company shut down, so i think it's fairly easy to get certain parts. apparently, though, a door is quite difficult to come by...at least for stan smith.

i was just pointing out that for someone with jerry's money and jerry's car collection, 1 delorean would be really a neat collectable, but having 2 wouldn't be outrageous

In the episode where Homer finds the big pile of sugar, he tells Marge that he found a dollar. She yells at him that while he was out "earning" that dollar he lost $40 by not going to work, so he must have been making $5/hour.

Unless she was talking about net rather than pre-tax gross, so maybe he was making $7/hour.

Not a sitcom, but I do wonder how Sherlock manages to afford his flat on Baker Street. Yes, I know, Mrs. Hudson's cutting him a special deal, but still...and in "His Last Vow" we see that she's in debt so...how does that work, exactly?

Even in the books it says that Sherlock is paying her a princely sum for his rooms. Scotland Yard isn't paying him so...how...?

Delorean parts are incredibly EASY to get ahold of. Enough parts were produced to make over 30,000, but less than 10,000 got assembled. There's a company in Texas (Delorean Motor Company) that bought EVERYTHING...all the NOS parts, all of the CAD files, blueprints, everything. Any parts that they run out of, they can reproduce to OEM specs or better. They also do full restorations, and Back to the Future conversions, if I remember correctly.

bungle_jr: Mugato: Target Builder: Homer Simpson is pulling in almost $80k?

The article says he's a Nuclear Safety "instructor", which I don't think is right. I think he's head of safety in the plant, which probably requires at least a masters in engineering. Which of course Homer doesn't have but he must have gotten the job through some comical means. The salary is probably about right.

if tfa said "instructor" it's wrong...nuclear safety INSPECTOR i do believe is correct.

i can't remember details right now, but i recall it was some sort of open application process when the plant opened, about the time homer was getting out of high school...or something like that. how he got such a seemingly high up job, i really don't recall.


IIRC the episode where the plant was going to melt down Smithers and Burns were talking about Homer being hired under Operation Bootstrap. Mr. Burns thanked president Ford for that plan.
