    I think there is a Talk Tennis member called "Mr. Harharwood". That was the old man at the theatre.

    There is one chapter where Kramer works as an actor in a Hospital.

    The chapter with the Top of the Muffin store was very funny, specially the Newman part.

    I am a fan of Seinfield, The only chapter I do not like that much is the one when the all got in jail due the Good Samaritan Law, same as Friends, I can watch both shows reruns and still LMAO.

    I'm a HUGE Seinfeld fan, best sitcom of all time, IMO.

    My favorite episode has got to be "The Contest". So many great scenes, esp. when Kramer puts the money down, "I'm OUT!" Hilarious! :D

    As for characters, hard to say. They all worked so well together. Maybe George, he always had something funny to say. Newman was great, too.

    My favorite scenes are the rickshaw, Vandelay Industries, Kramer talking to Elaine about the shower heads while Mr.Peterman overhears, and Kramer's "Welcome to MovieFone". "Why don't you just tell me the name of the movie you've selected?", he says in a still robotic voice. ROTFL

    ^^^^ Yes. Not often though. The food's so-so, I'm sorry to say. Average diner stuff. Lots of Seinfeld memorabilia on the wall, and there are tons of tourists taking pics on the outside all the time. (The interior looks nothing like the interior shown on Seinfeld)

    I heard the exterior shot of Seinfeld's apartment building was really a building in LA.

    yup, good call. they were trying to get it 'landmark' status by the city....also, can anyone remember off the top of their heads (from that episode) what the name of the "institute" that was mentioned? even i can't remember the full name. it's something along the lines of ''institute of motion picture...preservation...society''

    another "job" of kramer's which wasn't really one was when his phone number changed to 555-FILK...and people kept dialing the wrong number trying to get 555-FILM which was moviefone so he ended up just giving the movie show times like the automated message...lol that was hilarious..."why don't you just tell me where you want to see the movie" .. "why don't you just TELL ME the name of the movie you want to see"........

    one of my favorites from the latter seasons was when george was trying to crop himself out of kruger's family photo on the beach...i think that was the same episode where this came from..


    [​IMG]

    the ending to that episode was priceless...when jerry turns to george after seeing the photo of the black photo salesman and says "i have a few questions of my own"

    The episode was called "The Gum" and it was also top-5 worthy. The part that made it classic was the constant references to Lloyd Braun throughout the whole episode. It definitely had one of the most interwoven storylines in the entire show's history.

    "The Institute" was the Institute for the Preservation of Motion Picture Costumes and Wardrobe. Or, as Kramer said, the "IPMPCW".

    It was great when Deena saw George dressed up in the Henry VIII costume at the end and he told her it was from "the institute."

    Also note that the magazine stand attendant at the end of that episode where George buys a pack of gum was Larry David.

    The timeless art of seduction!


    BTW, the girl from the photo store that George asked out for a date was ADORABLE! Seinfeld always had hot chicks in the episodes.

    Toss up between "The Switch" and "The Comeback" since they are both tennis related. But the real question is what is the better racquet?...the Bruline - Newman's weapon of choice...remember, he's fantastic ~or~ the Wilson Sledge Hammer - so you can be a real man like Milos.

    All I know is if I were to use a Sledge Hammer against Ethel Kennedy, she'd be in big trouble.

    Definitely the GOAT sitcom. I can't pinpoint a single episode as my favorite. I love them all and still watch them when I stumble across them on TV. I cracked up @ this the other day:

    Mr. Lippman: It's come to my attention that you and the cleaning woman have engaged in sexual intercourse on the desk in your office. Is that correct?
    George Costanza: Who said that?
    Mr. Lippman: She did.
    George Costanza: [pause] Was that wrong? Should I not have done that? I tell you, I gotta plead ignorence on this thing, because if anyone had said anything to me at all when I first started here that that sort of thing is frowned upon... you know, cause I've worked in a lot of offices, and I tell you, people do that all the time.
    Mr. Lippman: You're fired!
    George Costanza: Well, you didn't have to say it like that.


    George's delivery of these lines were perfect....I was cracking up.

    It's incredible how one line from an episode brings the whole thing rushing back and has you instantly laughing. People who never watched it think you're nuts.

    George and Kramer were my two favorite regulars, but I think the funniest characters were the occasional or one-time onlies. Mr. Peterman was definitely one of my favorites, I wish they had used him more. Also, George's dad was hilarious (and still is on the King of Queens).

    I feel old when I start talking about Seinfeld and the people I'm with never saw it because it was before their time. How sad.

    I always tell everone that for every situation in life there's a Seinfeld episode that corresponds. Think about it. Work, relationships, parents... It's all covered.

    The library episode is still the funniest moment in that show's history. The library cop never ceased to make me laugh.

    It's go time!

    I love how TBS and my local UPN affiliate have converted Seinfeld into HD. Looks fantastic.

    Let's not forget the great Jon Voight and "we had a pact" themes that ran through several episodes. It's fun to see those show up from different episodes.




    "YOU GOT ME BLACKLISTED FROM HOP-SING'S?!"
    "She name name"



    "I, uh, I gotta sit down"
    "NO PAPPY NO!"


    "Earthen ware, China ware..what's the difference? There's earth in China."

    PHARMACIST: Can I help you?
    ELAINE (with little hope): Yeah, do you have any Today sponges? I know they're off the market, but...
    PHARMACIST: Actually, we have a case left.
    ELAINE (excited): A case! A case of sponges? I mean, uh...a case. Huh. Uh...how many come in a case?
    PHARMACIST: Sixty.
    ELAINE: Sixty?! Uh...well, I'll take three.
    PHARMACIST: Three.
    ELAINE: Make it ten.
    PHARMACIST: Ten?
    ELAINE: Twenty sponges should be plenty.
    PHARMACIST: Did you say twenty?
    ELAINE: Yeah, twenty-five sponges is just fine.
    PHARMACIST: Right. So, you're set with twenty-five.
    ELAINE: Yeah. Just give me the whole case and I'll be on my way.

    Don't you know what it means to become an orgy guy? It changes everything. I'd have to dress different. I'd have to act different. I'd have to grow a mustache and get all kinds of robes and lotions and I'd need a new bedspread and new curtains I'd have to get thick carpeting and weirdo lighting. I'd have to get new friends. I'd have to get orgy friends.
    ... Naw, I'm not ready for it.

    George: *Kramer* goes to a fantasy camp-His whole life is a fantasy camp. People should plunk down two-thousand dollars to live like him for a week. Do nothing, fall ***-backwards into money, mooch food off your neighbors and have sex without dating; that’s a fantasy camp!
