George gets annoyed when Jerry and his girlfriend call each other "Schmoopie," and Larry David also couldn't take Jerry and his girlfriend's "baby talk" in real life. Feresten said he originally pitched the "Schmoopie" idea because his girlfriend would do "really embarrassing public displays of affection." He told HuffPost, "She would do little baby talk. She never said 'Schmoopie,' but she would go, 'Oh, my little baby waby,' and it would make me crazy." schmoopie A disgustingly cute nickname for one's significant other, featured (perhaps coined) on the Seinfeld episode "The Soup Nazi." Often used in a tongue-in-cheek manner when one desires to imitate those publicly affectionate individuals one dreads encountering in a restaurant.
