Seinfeld is my all-time favorite show. Every episode is great in some way. And George is just the pinnacle of pathetic.

I think my all-time favorite line is one I don't hear often. Morty surprises Elaine with a visit to her office, and he asks "Whats the square-footage?"

To me, that just... sums up the boring conversation old people like to make

If you REALLY want to get technical about ZIP codes, here ya go.

The numbers designate the location in the country the destination is at.

East Coast ZIPs mostly start with 0 or 1 and work their way up to 9 as you move toward the West Coast.

The second number and third number designates how far North and South you go. The most North is designated 9 and goes down to 0 the more you move South (i.e. Alaska is 99xxx and San Diego is 90xxx).

The ZIP+4 is mostly for sorting a route at the local mail carrier's level and yes, using them does speed up delivery if the optical reader can make heads or tails of your lovely handwriting.

Hahaha, The Van Buren Boys is so good. I love the whole Jerry plot with his girlfriend (Christine Taylor) and how she's just inexplicably a "loser" and all of his friends instantly recognize her as such. Meanwhile to Jerry and the audience there's absolutely nothing wrong. And then I think about it, and I really do know people like her.

It also has my favorite George quote of all time: "Finishing an entire book doesn't prove anything."

I love Seinfeld because I have seen every episode but sometimes I wont always remember some of the subplots to the show. For example last night I was cooking and walked into the other room and noticed Jerry asked to use the bathroom to wash his hands. I immediately knew this is the episode he found the fungal cream in the chicks medicine cabinet. But I couldn't recall all of the other funny poo poo so it was like watching a show I hadn't seen in a while.

Sorry for the newspaper geek coming out of me, I'll continue the Seinfeld dissection.

I remember the closest we ever came to meeting any of Kramer's unseen friends (Bob Sacameno, Gomez) was in one late season episode where one of them is in a porto-john with Kramer outside. Anyone remember the episode?

I love 'The Muffin Tops' episode. First of all you have Kramer giving a reality tour (The last thing this guy is qualified to give a tour of is reality), then you have George being a tourist (No offense, but this city would eat you alive George), then you have Jerry shaving his chest (it's an old wives tale. Is it? IS IT REALLY?) and finally you have the titular muffin tops and the problems disposing the stumps.

It is just all woven together so loving well that I can't stop laughing during the entire episode. Anyone who says the last two seasons were the low seasons is just not right in the head.

"I can't believe you found an apartment so quickly. How much are you paying for this?"
"Twenty three hundred!"
"OUCH! A month? I guess it's alright for now but if you stay here for more than a couple months, you're a sucker."

"Alright let's go"
"Yeah let's air this place out for awhile - it smells like the last tenant had monkeys"

Sorry LividLiquid, but you're just a loser. No way around it.

My all time favorite Seinfeld arch is still reverse-George.

Cushman: Why don't you tell me about some of your previous job experience?
George Costanza: Alrighty. My last job was in publishing. I got fired for having sex in my office with the cleaning woman.
Cushman: Go on.
George Costanza: All right. Before that, I was in real estate. I quit because the boss wouldn't let me use his private bathroom. That was it.
Cushman: Do you talk to everybody like this?
George Costanza: Of course.
Cushman: My niece told me you were different.
George Costanza: I am different, yeah.

Edit: Seinfeld just came on.

George: What is the deal with the guys in the pit?
Jerry: They're musicians. That's not a joke!
George: It's a funny observation!

But seriously, are you perhaps in the UK? I am just asking because in most American publications I have seen they don't capitalize common acronyms like laser, scuba, or radar because their acronyms have fallen to the wayside, which I suppose is also true of ZIP but I have seen ZIP go all three ways: all caps, single cap, no caps. Also, I believe most American publications use all caps for FIFA and NATO.

As for a Seinfeld answer:

stratdax posted:

Her name is Rena Sofer and her Seinfeld appearance was pretty early in her career. She seems to do a lot of bit work in various tv series and her longest stint was 25 episodes of Melrose Place, but she also had short stints in 24 and Heroes.

The episode where Elaine's bald-by-choice boyfriend starts growing his hair back and discovers to his horror that he's bald is just amazing, especially George checking him out and giving him advice on how to live "the last months of his life"

Any opinions on worst episodes? Larry David in a lot of the dvd bonus material clearly states one in particular stands out but never says what it is, same with Jerry.

The last two seasons are def. a low point but what still stands out as the worst to me is The Puerto Rican Day, especially as the second to last real episode. Sure there are a few good moments with all the fake names but it's so very, VERY un-Seinfeld to me. It seemed to be a very lame attempt to recreate The Chinese Restaurant or The Parking Garage and is always so grating to watch. For periods of time literally nothing happens when they're in traffic and it just plain goes nowhere. Even New York Street stands out as being nothing but a studio set for the only time of the entire series as well.

They had something going with the bleachers/poseidon adventure schtick but it was too short and way way too forced to be pulled off right.

This is pure insanity. The Puerto Rican Parade episode was and is one of my all-time favorites and should have been the finale.
