My favorite Seinfeld moment is from The Yada Yada where Jerry goes to the priest because he thinks his dentist converted to Judaism just for the jokes.

Father: That's a kneeler.

Jerry: Oh.

Father: Tell me your sins, my son.

Jerry: Well I should tell you that I'm Jewish.

Father: That's no sin.

That whole scene is awesome but I love the ending when George busts into the confession booth. That whole episode he's showing up in places he shouldn't.

Okay, not trying to derail this great thread, but who else thinks Kramer was a toker. I'm not a advocate, per se, but I've smoked my share and his discombobulation and random asides point to weeeeeeed.

Again, not saying he was, but it just seemed like so much of his behavior seemed indicative of cannabis use.

Feel free to smack me down if you know from cannon that he wasn't.

I've brought it up with friends both smokers and not, and their response is usually "meh, maybe, maybe not" but some of the things he does seem like things only your best stoner buddy would attempt (and predictably, fail at).

I feel that having drug use a folly for his behavior kind of takes away the magic of the character. Kramer is so strange simply because hes Kramer. Although I do recall an episode where he said that an air conditioner fell on his head in 1979, which may explain his disjointed thinking.

This guy doesn't make it sound very funny, but trust me, it was.

Also, Kramer was not knowledgeable about drugs in general, as exposed in "The Sniffing Accountant", and was clearly bothered by the idea of the accountant using drugs at all, even giving Jerry advice about the lifestyle of drug users (they live in the bathroom!) but I guess he could have smoked pot. It would explain kind of a lot. I personally think he didn't though.

\/\/\/ Yeah, that's what Kramer thinks drug users are really like. He doesn't do drugs, he's just Kramer. But that's an outtake. Kramer doesn't burp in the real version.

Speaking of George and movie theaters:

Man #1: "Hey baby, how about a little tongue action, huh?"
Man #2: "Yeah, stick your tongue down his throat!"
(They laugh and kick George's and Victoria's seats)
Victoria: "What are we gonna do? Should we just move?"
George: "That won't be necessary." (gets up and turns towards the two men)
George: "Shut your traps and stop kicking the seats! We're trying to watch the movie! And if I have to tell you again, we're gonna take it outside and I'm gonna show you what it's like! You understand me? Now, shut your mouths or I'll shut 'em for ya, and if you think I'm kidding, just try me. Try me. Because I would LOVE it!"

quote:

As Alexander explains in an interview for the Seinfeld DVD, during an early conversation with David, Alexander questioned a script, saying, "This could never happen to anyone, and even if it did, no human being would react like this." David replied, "What do you mean? This happened to me once, and this is exactly how I reacted!".
Do they ever specify what situation Alexander and David are talking about? Personally, I like to think it's the bit where George finds the eclair in the trash can and eats it.

According to the "Inside Looks" on the Seinfeld DVD's, that's one of three Buddy Rich lines in the show, lifted from bootleg tapes of Rich's rants that Seinfeld and David are fans of. The other two are "This guy... this is not my kind of guy." from "The Understudy" and "Then we'll see how he does, up there, without all the assistance." from "The Butter Shave" I think.

I'm honestly disappointed to hear "This guy... this is not my kind of guy." is a Buddy Rich quote. I mean I love Buddy Rich, but I always thought it was some awesome moment of Jerry Stiller weirdly screwing up the line in a way that was unexpectedly more funny, and they decided to use it. Oh well....

I had that jacket back in the early nineties. Loved the hell out of it. Pretty sure it was an Eddie Bauer.

I also wore a lot of flannel, but that was more of a grunge thing.

Don't have a clip, but my favorite Bania exchange:

Bania: You work out with weights?
Jerry: No, I don't.
Bania: You should
Jerry: Why?

Then Bania gives this sort of "what am i doing with my life?" look for one brief second and then returns to his cheery self and continues with the conversation.

I love that you can hear Larry David's laughter throughout that scene.

When Seinfeld was actually on air during its first run, I had no idea who Larry David was and only really discovered him once Curb became a series. It was only after that point that I discovered just how much his voice cameos on Seinfeld.. phone calls, people yelling off-screen, and of course George Steinbrenner. And then, of course there's this.

I'm not entirely sure, but in "The Secret Code" George meets Peterman and after Peterman introduces himself as J. Peterman, George touches his jacket and replies "J. Crew". I just don't remember for sure what jacket that was.

I found this funny because before I saw that episode, I assumed J.Peterman was the Seinfeld Universe's fake version of J.Crew...then I found out the J.Peterman catalog (complete with outlandish descriptions as if they were part of some grand adventure of J.Peterman himself) was real!

(but that actual person J.Peterman is fake...that part they did make up.)
