While you can't go wrong with almost any episode of Seinfeld, one of my favorite episodes is The Nose Job. It's early in the shows run, I want to say season 2. It has some hilarious scenes and you can really start to see the characters growing into their roles at that point.

Yeah, I agree...there's not many that aren't hilarious - but that's also a good one.

I don't remember the name of the episode, but it was the one where the "Fusilli Jerry" statue impaled Frank Costanza in a dirty place.

The Chamberlain...


JERRY: Vomitting is not a deal breaker. If Hitler had vomitted on Chamberlain, Chamberlain still would have given him Czechoslovakia.

GEORGE: Chamberlain...you could hold his head in the toilet, he'd still give you half of Europe.

I laughed uncontrollably during "The Contest". One of my friends from childhood had a similar experience when his mother "caught" him inside the car which was inside the garage. All she said was, "(Masked Profanity), Shawn, go into the bathroom and lock the door!!"

I remember the first airing of that episode. The NBC promos led us to believe that the entire episode would be about the naked woman across the street. Kramer slamming his money down onto the counter and declaring, "I'm out!!!!" is one of the funniest television moments ever.

I've got the first 4 seasons on DVD. That, and it's on every night on TBS - I'm addicted! I just can't stop watching this show over and over. :lol:

Some of my favorites...

The Pony Remark

ELAINE: What about ponies? What kind of abnormal animal is that? And those kids who had their own ponies..

JERRY: I know, I hated those kids. In fact, I hate anyone that ever had a pony when they were growing up.

MANYA: ..I had a pony.

(The room is dead quiet)

JERRY: ..Well, I didn't really mean a pony, per se.

MANYA: (Angry) When I was a little girl in Poland, we all had ponies. My sister had pony, my cousin had pony, ..So, what's wrong with that?

JERRY: Nothing. Nothing at all. I was just merely expressing..

HELEN: Should we have coffee? Who's having coffee?

MANYA: He was a beautiful pony! And I loved him.

JERRY: Well, I'm sure you did. Who wouldn't love a pony? Who wouldn't love a person that had a pony?

MANYA: You! You said so!

JERRY: No, see, we didn't have ponies. I'm sure at the time in Poland, they were very common. They were probably like compact cars..

MANYA: That's it! I've had enough! (She leaves the room)

ISAAC: Have your coffee, everyone. She's a little upset. It's been an emotional day.

(Isaac leaves, everyone looks at Jerry)

JERRY: I didn't know she had a pony. How was I to know she had a pony? Who figures an immigrant's going to have a pony? Do you know what the odds are on that? I mean, in all the pictures I saw of immigrants on boats coming into New York harbor, I never saw one of them sitting on a pony. Why would anybody come here if they had a pony? Who leaves a country packed with ponies to come to a non-pony country? It doesn't make sense.. am I wrong?


The Chinese Restaurant

"Seinfeld - Four!"

The Outing

Jerry: There's been a big misunderstanding here! We did that whole thing

for your benefit. We knew you were eavesdropping. That's why my

friend said all that. It was on purpose! We're not gay! Not that

there's anything wrong with that...

George: No, of course not...

Jerry: I mean that's fine if that's who you are...

George: Absolutely...

Jerry: I mean I have many gay friends...

George: My *father* is gay...

Sharon: Look, I know what I heard.

Jerry: It was a *joke*...

George: Look, you wanna have sex right now? Do want to have sex with me right

now? Let's go! C'mon, let's go baby! C'mon!

The Nose Job

Audrey: It's amazing how many beautiful women live in New York. I actually

find it kind of intimidating.

Kramer: Well, you're as pretty as any of them, you just need a nose job.

The Bubbleboy

George's battle with the BB in Trivial Pursuit. :lol:

DONALD: OK, HISTORY. THIS IS FOR THE GAME. HOW YA DOIN' OVER THERE? NOT TOO GOOD!

GEORGE: All right BB. Let's just play... Who invaded Spain in the 8th century?

DONALD: THAT'S A JOKE. THE MOORS.

GEORGE: Oh, Noooo, I'm so sorry. It's the MOOPS. The correct answer is, The MOOPS.

DONALD: MOOPS? LET ME SEE THAT. THAT'S NOT MOOPS YOU JERK, IT'S MOORS. IT'S A MISPRINT.

GEORGE: I'm sorry the card says MOOPS.

DONALD: IT DOESN'T MATTER. I'S THE MOORS. THERE'S NO MOOPS.

GEORGE: It's MOOPS.

DONALD: MOORS.

GEORGE: MOOPS,

DONALD: MOORS!

GEORGE: Help, someone. <BUBBLE BOY is strangling George>

DONALD: THERE'S NO MOOPS. YOU IDIOT.

SUSAN: Stop it. Let go of him!

Mrs. SANGER: Donald, stop it! Now, let go of him Donald. Donald!

DONALD: I'M GOING TO KILL HIM.

Mrs. SANGER: Donald, ... donald...

DONALD: MOORS. SAY MOORS!

Mrs. SANGER: Donald, No. ... stop it ..

<Susan bursts the bubble>

<hissing sound and Donald's hands leave George's throat>

The one about being sponge worthy.

Where Elaine was interviewing/interogating the guy to see if he was sponge-worthy was hilarious....

Elaine: "You gonna do something about them sideburns?"
Guy: "Yeah, Yeah. Tommorrow, first thing."
Elaine: "Ok. Lets go."

One of the best "George scenes" ever....
Cut back to George attempting to explain his cowardly actions (trampling women and children in an attempt to flee a burning house) to Robin, her mother, Eric and a fireman from the back of the ambulance at the party.

GEORGE (voice is hoarse from screaming): I...was trying to lead the way. We needed a leader! Someone to lead the way to safety.

ROBIN: But you yelled "get out of my way"!

GEORGE: Because! Because, as the leader...if I die...then all hope is lost! Who would lead? The clown? Instead of castigating me, you should all be thanking me. What kind of a topsy-turvy world do we live in, where heroes are cast as villains? Brave men as cowards?

ROBIN: But I saw you push the women and children out of the way in a mad panic! I saw you knock them down! And when you ran out, you left everyone behind!

GEORGE: Seemingly. Seemingly, to the untrained eye, I can fully understand how you got that impression. What looked like pushing...what looked like knocking down...was a safety precaution! In a fire, you stay close to the ground, am I right? And when I ran out that door, I was not leaving anyone behind! Oh, quite the contrary! I risked my life making sure that exit was clear. Any other questions?

FIREMAN: How do you live with yourself?

GEORGE: Its not easy.

Followed up by--in the same episode--one of the best Kramer scenes ever...


Kramer and Jerry in Jerry's apartment (after Toby's toe was severed)

KRAMER: What did you go up there to heckle her for?

JERRY: Because she came down to the club and heckled me! Give her a taste of her own medicine! <George enters.>

KRAMER: Oh, YEAH! You gave her a taste of medicine, alright.

JERRY: Well, I didn't want her to have an accident.

GEORGE: What accident?

KRAMER: Well, after he heckled Toby, she got so upset, she ran out of the building and a street sweeper ran over her foot and severed her pinky toe.

GEORGE: That's unbelievable!

KRAMER: Yeah! Then after the ambulance left, I found the toe! So I put it in a Cracker Jack box, filled it with ice, and took off for the hospital.

GEORGE: You ran?

KRAMER: No, I jumped on the bus. I told the driver, "I got a toe here, buddy - step on it."

GEORGE: Holy cow!

KRAMER: Yeah, yeah, then all of a sudden, this guy pulls out a gun. Well, I knew any delay is gonna cost her her pinky toe, so I got out of the seat and I started walking towards him. He says, "Where do you think you're going, Cracker Jack?" I said, "Well, I got a little prize for ya, buddy - " <Kramer throws two quick punches and a massive uppercut> - knocked him out cold!

GEORGE: How could you do that?!

KRAMER: Then everybody is screamin,' because the driver, he's passed out from all the commotion...the bus is out of control! So, I grab him by the collar, I take him out of the seat, I get behind the wheel and now I'm drivin' the bus.

GEORGE: You're Batman.

KRAMER: Yeah. Yeah, I am Batman. Then the mugger, he comes to, and he starts chokin' me! So I'm fightin' him off with one hand and I kept drivin' the bus with the other, y'know? Then I managed to open up the door, and I kicked him out the door with my foot, you know - at the next stop.

JERRY: You kept makin' all the stops?

KRAMER: Well, people kept ringin' the bell!

GEORGE: Well, what about the toe? What happened to the toe?

KRAMER: Well! I am happy to say that the little guy is back in place at the end of the line.

GEORGE: You did all this...for a pinky toe?

KRAMER: Well, it's a valuable appendage.

That's just a great exchange. :lol:

There were some good exchanges in the Smelly Car.


When Geoerge sees Susan at the video store and discovers she's now a lesbian....

George: Listen. Let me ask you something. If you and Mona were ever to... dance, how do you decide who leads? I mean... do you take turns? Do you discuss it beforehand? How does that work?

Susan: You're an idiot.

George: Why? That's a *legitimate* sociological question.

Elaine describing the B.O. in the car....

Elaine: Y'know I can think of at *least* six known offensive odours that

I would *rather* smell than what's livin' in your car.

Jerry: What about skunk?

Elaine: I don't mind skunk.

Jerry: Horse manure?

Elaine: I *loooove* horse manure.

------------------------------------------------------------

And the Cigar Store Indian had some hlarious stuff poking fun at political correctness, and with Jerry trying to win over the Native American girl and not have a slip of the tongue after offending her earlier with the cigar store Indian....

JERRY: You know, I don't get it. Not allowed to ask a Chinese person where the Chinese restaurant is! I mean, aren't we all getting a little too sensitive? I mean, someone asks me which way's Israel, I don't fly off the handle.



WINONA: So, where are we gonna go eat?

JERRY: I thought we'd eat at the Gentle Harvest.

WINONA: Ooh, I love that place, but it's usually so crowded. Can we get a table?

JERRY: Ah, don't worry. I made reser... (catches himself)

WINONA: You made what?

JERRY: I uh, I uh, I arranged for the appropriate accommodation. And then, Knick tickets, floor seats.

WINONA: How did you get these?

JERRY: Got 'em on the street, from a scal... (catches himself again) A uh, one of those guys.

WINONA: What guys?

JERRY: You know, the guys, that uh, they sell the tickets for the sold-out
events.

WINONA: Oh.

WINONA: (laughs) Oh, by the way. That TV Guide I gave you, I need it back.

JERRY: Why?

WINONA: Well, I'm doing a report on minorities in the media, and I wanted to use that interview with Al Roker.

JERRY: Well, it's too late. I gave it to Elaine, and she's already on her way to give it to George's father.

WINONA: Jerry, I really need it back. It, it is mine.

JERRY: You can't give something and then take it back. I mean, what are you... (catches himself)

WINONA: What?

JERRY: A uh, a person that uh...

WINONA: A person that what?

JERRY: Well, a person that gives something and then they're dissatisfied and
they wish they had, had never uh...

WINONA: And?

JERRY: ...give, given it to the person that they originally gave it to.

WINONA: You mean like, an Indian giver?!

JERRY: I'm sorry, I'm not familiar with that term.

* The one where Kramer does everything in the shower, including cook

* The one where George lies about being a marine biologist and then has to save a beached whale

* The one with the cigar store Indian

But my all-time favorite has to be the one when Elaine goes with Jerry to Florida to visit his parents and she is forced to sleep on a fold-out couch in a condo with no AC. It's also the one with the astronaut pen that writes upside down.

I love the one where Kramer found the Old Merv Griffin Set in a dumpster and set it up in his apartment.

One of my favorite moments was from another episode in which George bought some fruit I believe for Kramer..When George asked him for the money Kramer said " I don't carry money" Goerge replies " Don't carry money? How do you get by?" Kramer explains "Oh I get by"

LOL I have some friends like that :)

What was great about this show was some of the phraseology and expressions that sprung...

"Women go after doctors like men go after models. They want someone with knowledge of the body. We just want the body." - Jerry

"You could do your taxes in the time it takes me to have an orgasm." - George

"Hawaii... The most sought-after postal route of them all. The air is so dewy-sweet you don't even have to lick the stamps." - Newman

A couple from an exchange between George and his Mother....

"I think we really need to be in front of the television set. You take TV out of this relationship, it is just torture."

"I'm out there, George."
"You're not out there."
"I am too."
"You're not out there. You can't be because I am out there. And if I see you out there there's not enough voltage in this world to electro-shock me back into coherence."

"You know what a good mechanic is worth? You can't compare that to sex." - Jerry

"Don't we have a deal with the pigeons?"
"Of course we have a deal. They get out of the way of our cars, we look the other way on the statue defecation." - George and Jerry

"It's more like a full-body dry heave set to music."
- George, on Elaine's dancing style, in "The Little Kicks"

"You remember this: When you control the mail, you control information!" - Newman

"I'm better with the mothers than I am with the daughters."
"Maybe you should date the mothers."
"If I could talk to the mothers and have sex with the daughters, then I'd really have something going." - George and Jerry

And I loved the episode where Kramer and Newman were playing RISK. :lol:

"Alright, fine, you sit there and you watch while Newman takes over the world. But he'd be a horrible leader. And you know who's going to suffer? The little people. You and George." - Kramer to Jerry

"It's Risk. It's a game of world domination being played by two guys who can barely run their own lives." - Jerry

"I'm taking the Congo as a penalty!" - Kramer, after catching Newman cheating

"You know what the Ukraine is? It's a sitting duck. A road apple, Newman. The Ukraine is weak. It's feeble. I think it's time to put the hurt on the Ukraine." - Kramer
