What's your all-time favorite Seinfeld episode?
I can't help myself--I am so flooded with relief right now that I figured I would post my first truly pointless Lounge thread!!!

My favorite is... ooh, so many to choose from... I have to say that I honestly love the Soup Nazi episode, but also the one where Jerry's girlfriend looks like a completely different person in different light--too funny and that is the one with Festivus as well (the name of the episode is The Strike, which is my favorite holiday.

"It's a Festivus for the rest-of-us!" Wiki actually has an entry on Festivus, which just rocked my world http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Festivus .

What's yours?

1. So many good ones
Kramer putting his clothes in the pizza oven
Costanza doing a real-life Frogger with the Frogger machine to keep his high score
Kramer getting nailed poaching lobsters from the traps
Jon Voight's car
Costanza goes on a bad-boy streak, gets picked up in the police station by his father
Frank Costanza cooking for the WWII Veterans
"Oooh, you're too good for the Early Bird special now?"
RISK
Elaine's dance gets bootlegged and sold on the street

5. So many to choose from, but "The Wizard" is classic.
Edited on Fri Mar-10-06 05:40 PM by Starbucks Anarchist
It's the one where Kramer runs for condo president with Jerry's dad's help in Florida and where Elaine doesn't know if her boyfriend is black, white or mixed race.

:rofl:

EDIT: Also, the "Jerk Store" episode was a classic.

6. I like the one where George accidentally strangles a prostitute...
...and he and Kramer hide her in the trunk of Jerry's car, but they don't tell Jerry. Then, a couple of weeks later, Jerry and Elaine are in his car, and he asks her "do you think it stinks?" and she says "oh, I think it stinks." And then Kramer gets in the car and he does that silly convulsive thing because it smells so bad. "Jerry! I'm too delicate for prison!"

Hilarity.

8. The competition to see who can go longest without ...
... and they never mention exactly what they're not doing.

Brilliant, brilliant stuff.

"Master of my domain? I'm king of the county."

That or the one where George is mistaken for a Neo-Nazi leader in the back of a limo.

10. The Keith Hernandez episode.
After that - the Soup Nazi, the Contest, and the one about Jerry and Elaine trying to work out the rules for having a sexual relationship.

12. Too hard to choose...
Though it's safe to say that if Puddy, J. Peterman, or Frank Costanza made an appearance, it was classic, haha.

14. The "Jimmy" episode
Every element tied back together...the dentist, the vertical leap shoes, George and the Kung Pao chicken, Mel Torme, Jimmy going out with Elaine...

Brilliant.

16. I think "The Slicer" is sheer comic genius.
Oh man, that just starts an excellent story arc when George gets the job working at Krueger Industrial Smoothing. :D

"He looks like a Peanuts character!" :rofl:

24. George taking an eclair * out of a garbage pail and he's just about to
sink his teeth into it and someone (potential girlfriend's mother?) sticks her head in the kitchen at the very instant he's biting down....

Just started laughing out loud thinking about it!!! :7

*(maybe it was a cannoli)

26. Are you talking about the bizarro Jerrys? I love that one.
Also love the one with the contest. And the one when Jerry accidentally drops his girlfriend's toothbrush into the toilet. And the one when George finds the place where all the really hot chicks hang out and Jerry dates "Man-hands."

29. "Merv Griffin"...without a DOUBT, "Merv Griffin"...
Hype?

Of COURSE...the whole Seinfeld legend is FILLED TO OVERFLOWING with HYPE.

But that ONE EPISODE...from the final season...lived UP to all of the hype.

GENIUS. 23 minutes of PURE COMEDIC GENIUS.

I CANNOT wait for the Season 9 DVD.

:toast:

32. The Hot Tub, The Junior Mint, The Blood, The Pie
I think Seinfeld has got to be the most quotable sitcom in TV history. Jerry and the gang did leave on a high note, IMO.
