Schmoopie - Cloying term of endearment
("You're Schmoopie!" "No, YOU'RE Schmoopie!") heard on "The
Soup Nazi" episode
of the situation comedy SEINFELD/NBC/1990-1998.
Sheila and Jerry
When Jerry and his girlfriend Sheila
(Alexandra Wentworth) began calling each other "Schmoopie," his friends thought
it was just to gooey, especially George Costanza (Jason Alexander), who hated
such overt physical displays of affection.
But when George next met Jerry at
their local hangout, a competition of affection ensued as Jerry and his date
were "Schmooping" all over the place.
George, not to be shown up in the eyes of
his girlfriend, began to talk baby talk ("Ooogie-Woogie," "Baby-waby") to his
fiancée. A little later Jerry dropped his girlfriend and the normally reserved
George was now stuck with supporting his new persona as a touchy-feely,
sensitive kind of guy.
