That's what he said to Alec Baldwin. WTF? I remember that lying asshole talking about The Hamptons a long time before that - mostly about how the people there were jerks and how he'd never want to live there. A quick look at marksfriggin (which only goes back to 1996) brings up plenty of old references. One example: -- Wednesday June 11, 1997 -- ◾Stuttering John's Nightmarish Wedding Plans. 6/11/97. 6:35am Stuttering John is getting married in the near future and he's been having some problems with the plans. He was telling Howard about how he doesn't have a permit to have the wedding on the beach like he's supposed to but that doesn't matter because there's no beach at the house he's renting for $10,000 a month! John has been planning all of this for a very long time and now it's falling apart. He has to get a different house on the beach so that he has a beach to have the wedding on. Then the caterer has to get a permit to have the wedding. Howard pointed out that John is having this wedding out in the Hamptons on Long Island. It's a very popular spot and there's only one road in and out of the place so it's going to be a pain in the ass for all of his guests to get there.
