Henning (henningbw) The following "author" has a quote added. The problem is that this person doesn't exist. Elaine Benes is Julia Louis-Dreyfus' character on the comedy series Seinfeld. The quote is from one of the episodes.

I figure characters aren't supposed to be added like this, but I don't know if the quote should be credited with the actor or just be deleted (or something else entirely).

Marina Should be deleted, I think.
This site is for book quotes and quotes from real people, not TV characters.
Only, I don't quite know how to do it...

Banjomike | 5524 comments Deleted. I couldn't track down a specific writer for the quote and it almost certainly wasn't by Julia Louis-Dreyfus. The author record can stay until the famous "delete empty authors" script runs.
