The New York Times asked Seinfeld, "When you’re flipping channels and you come across a Seinfeld rerun, do you flip right past it or do you linger?" Seinfeld responded: Right past it. I think there’s a level of focus you need to get something to a certain point creatively, and you pay a price for that, which is you can’t ever look at it again." As for if he ever second-guessed turning down NBC's offer to continue doing Seinfeld at $5 million an episode, Seinfeld says: "No. It was the perfect moment, and the proof that it was the right moment is the number of questions you’re still asking me about it."
