This was just used as an answer in the Seinfeld Game, I remember Jerry used it in the close talker episode, but what does it refer to?

Hmmm, You got me. Maybe the Maestro can answer that.

I like to link it to the Dean Martin classic Thats Amore
"Hearts will play tippy tippy tay .... " But that doesnt exactly meet Jerry's quote.

sinatrastar, that's all I could come up w/ too :D the gay (yet furry) spider song ;)

[Edouard] Manet and [Claude] Monet were in fact, French impressionist (....{best frog accent}waa waa, I am impressed{/best frog accent}) but not Tippi/Tippy, I think Jer was jsut playing on words, kind of making fun of the the close talker and his desire to take Sein's parents to a museum, & that whole experience. Jer really smirked at Aaron (close talker) and treated him like a joke..... which of course he was.

Here's a little bit of the script that the Maestro mentioned:

AARON: Ah Jerry you would not believe the time we had.

HELEN: Aaron is quite the tour guide.

MORTY: Jerry have you ever seen any of those impressionist paintings?

JERRY: Oh sure like Monet.

MORTY: Don't you think he had to be uh near sighted? I mean nobody would paint like that if they could see. It's all out of focus.

JERRY: Well he's from the impressionist school, you know like Monet, Manet, Tippi Tippi Dayday.

>>>When the moon hits you eye like a big pizza pie
That's amore
When the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine
That's amore
Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling
And you'll sing "Vita bella"
Hearts will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay
Like a gay tarantella<<<

:blush: I'm just a IDIOT.... :rolleyes:
a tarantula is a big furry spider....
and a tarantella is an Itailian dance.

Learn something every day around these parts :D

This is quite an old post, never the less I will "shed some light on this mystery"

Well I was curious as well to this reference. I did some research and found this thread to be one of the only to inquire yet, no definite answer...

So I did some more research, actually this has got to be one of the hardest to find seinfeld reference's for me to find. Anyway here it goes:

The line can be heard in the movie "Send me no Flowers" and it's muttered by Singer/Actress "Doris Day", the line is "And a tippy tippy day day to you too, mama. No, just a whim."

I'm the Wiz!! I'm the Wiz!!

AWESOME Find Vachon. I thank you very much for this.

You were looking at some old posts, but I am glad you did.

How did you ever find this?

I'm listening to a podcast where they cover SEINFELD episode by episode. I'm up to The Raincoats, and in the discussion the hosts talk about this thread.
