    It's not the same actor, but vkhartiv is right about the surgeon in "The Junior Mint" being the same actor as the one who told George Susan had died. He also made two other appearances as that same doctor.

    Classic. That's the episode where George went to the holistic healer (Tor Eckman) to treat his tonsillitis.

    Wasn't Bob also the guy who sold "rat hats"?

    Yup, for $40 bucks! The difference (between the rat hat and a sable hat) is negligible!


    By the way, the Kenny Rogers Chicken Roaster episode is one of the best of all time. The "switch" between Kramer and Jerry is hilarious.



    Trivia: Who is "Mr. Marbles?"

    Mr. Marbles? Two guesses: The "boogedie man" Elaine feared or the dummy Kramer had, or something like that.

    PS - got your mail and will send you something soon!

    Quiz Time Again!

    Q: What's a Wilard?

    No string, though.

    woohooo, gotta love the quiz.

    A 'Wilard' were the fake Wizard calculators that Jerrys father and Kramer where to give everyone of Del Boca Vista condos to ensure victory in elections. Some lacked the number '7', others overtipped (5 dollar tip for a BLT?). Saccamano Senior screwed Jerry!

    BTW, yeah, Bob Saccamano's dad did live in Florida.

    HA HA - good call although you forgot the "phase III" in the "Del Boca Vista" gig. Nonetheless, GREAT call.

    Oh, I really think you're wrong.

    (Note: "Oh, I really think you're wrong" is a quote from Kramer in The Cafe episode):


    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPxoUHRlx58


    http://www.absoluteastronomy.com/topics/The_Package_(Seinfeld_episode)

    Kramer poses as "Dr. Van Nostrand, from the clinic".





    That episode also had one of the best exchanges EVER on Seinfeld:

    Jerry: So, we're going to make the post office pay for my new stereo now?
    Kramer: It's a write-off for them.

    Jerry: How is it a write-off?
    Kramer: They just write it off.

    Jerry: Write it off what?
    Kramer: Jerry, all these big companies, they write off everything.

    Jerry: You don't even know what a write-off is.
    Kramer: Do you?

    Jerry: No, I don't!
    Kramer: But they do. And they're the ones writing it off.





    You will learn to respect my Seinfeld authori-tay!

    "On the flip side..."

    Q: Kramer has a fear of what?
    Q: Jerry went to what college?
    Q: Jerry and George went to what high-school?
    Q: Jerry is allergic to what metal cleaner chemical?
    Q: What is Jerry's apartment number?

    I'm tired and am going to sleep on what sheet pattern?

    No string for you!

    Was it Queen's College? I recall him wearing a t-shirt from there in one episode. Seth, from the "The Chicken Roaster" was an old college buddy, but I don't recall him saying what college.

    Did anyone watch the 1st episode of the 7th season of Curb last night? It wasn't as good as the previous ones but the plot for the next few episodes is hilarious and I'm looking forward to them...

    Larry the manager of Monk's Cafe.

    Joe Temple (with daughter Remmy and wife)

    George's boss: Mr. Morgan

    Evander Holyfield (poster only)

    the cop from "The Scofflaw" episode that considered Newman his "white whale"

    the flower shop owner from "The Alex" (theater) episode who sprays Elaine with the hose

    There were other "extras" in different episodes, but I can't think of any other regulars.

    I think that guy was Lamar from revenge of the Nerds.

    Seinfeld is riddled with secondary characters who went on to have bigger parts in other shows. Or vice versa.

    How about Mario Joyner? I don't know the name of the character he played, but he was the guy who refused to move his car in "The Puerto Rican Day".

    He also qualifies as someone who played multiple characters on the show as he played a movie patron in "The Engagement".

    Also, don't forget about Walter. He's the guy who worked with Elaine at J Pederman's.

    I forgot about Walter!

    My favorite part is in the "Germophobe" episode where Elaine's co-worker (who kept calling her Suzie) put her brand new bottle of water into the garbage just because Elaine touched it, yet she readily drank the last few ounces of Walter's backwash from his water bottle immediately afterwards.

    Awesome.

    Season 9, Episode 15 – Aired: 2/26/1998
    The Wizard

    Jerry buys his dad a $200 Wizard organizer for a birthday present. George receives a message from Susan's parents, the Rosses. Jerry and George debate about the race of Elaine's new boyfriend and that intrigues her (is he black?).

    Okay, I think we covered the black characters....now how about naming all the notable the Asian characters??


    I'll start us out...

    Ping
    Hopsing
    Female lawyer George dated (name?)
    Male restaurant host ("Cartwright!")
    Flounder fish delivery guy
    Frank's mistress
    Manicure ladies

    Other blacks:

    The guy who moved the cars to the opposite side of the street in the episode in which Kramer had a line in a Woody Allen movie.

    The marathon runner (Jean Claude) who slept through the alarm when Kramer's hot tub blew out the fuses.

    Asians; The 3 japanese guys who were trapped in the Karl Farbman dresser that Kramer let them sleep in. Same episode as the Jean Claude one, I believe.

    And there was the white woman who was a wannabe asian, Donna Chang. Her phone line was crossed with George's.

    The restaurant owner who wanted Elaine to "name names."

    Speaking of Ping, isn't that him singing and crying in the I Don't Know Much........ musical GE commercial?
    Looks like the same guy, Ping Wu, except he is 15 to 20 years older.

    Who was the second spitter?
