I seem to remember a comic involving Kramer running in screaming about apples, only for apples to pour through the door and push him out the window. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

TWWWWWIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIX

This episode fires on all cylinders for me. Kramer driving past E, Jerry dealing with Elaine and Puddy (Hey, Koko. That monkey's alright. High Five,), and the candy lineup.

My favorite quote from that episode is "And you! How many Twix does that make for you, today?! Like, 8 Twix?!" and the mechanic's mouthful of "Noooo."

It's a Shmorky comic, with the Mackinaw Peaches that Kramer was obsessed with. I can't find it for the life of me, but it's wonderful. Webcomic authors do such a great job with Seinfeld subject matter, for whatever reason.

Yeah a lot of people dont like this one because it's probably among the most unrealistic and zany of all the episodes, but it's all loving gold.

Puddy taking Elaine to "a restaurant..."
Puddy adding insane charges to Jerry's car; "Finders fee? It was on the lot." "Yeah that's right." "Keys?" "How you gonna start it?"
The entire insane conversation about the 100 grand bar -- especially the line "They all have swirling chocolate in the commercials!" Crazy old man: Not skittles!

"The Tigers' biggest obstacle to a championship will be keeping a straight face. The Tigers in three."

I've always been a pretty big fan of Seinfeld, but I didn't start getting into Curb Your Enthusiasm until the last year or two, so I didn't know until recently that George was based on Larry David. Or if I did hear about it in the past, I just didn't care since I had no idea who Larry was I started watching Curb.

Now when I watch reruns of Seinfeld they take on a whole new level of entertainment since I can picture Larry David in all the situations George got into, and when George acts like an rear end in a top hat I picture Larry acting like a mega-rear end in a top hat. Especially after one of the last episodes of Curb where Larry was doing a rehersal as George.

A few years ago at my first job, I was in a rush to get together a whole crapload of pages for a book right before a meeting -- basically, I had to get 10 copies of this book printed -- and the printer had hosed up and didn't collate the pages. So I had stacks of pages in my cubicle, and I was sitting on the floor trying to sift my way through all of this stuff, and one of the editors walked by, took one look at the papers and at how frustrated I was, and said to me, "And you want to be my latex salesman," then walked away.

Seinfeld never gets re-run in the uk (if it does its on at some god-forsaken time on some digital channel in the bowels of sky+)

Therefore i have only ever seen a hondful of episodes and clips, it sucks because friends is shown still all the time but seinfeld is just as funny and just as long running?

Curb is on a lot and i know thats like the nearest thing on right now because of larry david. wish more4 would just whack Seinfeld on more often.

Seinfeld always got a bum deal in the UK, BBC2 bought it and would keep moving the timeslot between different days and it ended up going out after midnight usually. They did this with Larry Sanders too and more recently with Arrested Development.

It was shown on Paramount Comedy later on when it was picking up a cult following, not sure if it's still on there though.

It really is a great episode and I love how in his description to Puddy, George includes that the guy is a liar. And everything else is funny too.

JERRY: (Threatening tone) So, listen, Puddy. When we first started this deal, I thought things were gonna be different. Now, if you want to play hard ball, I got my friend, George, here, and he can play pretty hard.. ball. George, vein it up.

GEORGE: Alright, Puddy, listen, and listen good: I need to know the name of that mechanic that walks around here. Big guy, a liar. Short name. Sam? Moe? Sol?!

JERRY: George! Can we focus on the car, here?

JERRY: (Pleading) George, could you help me, please?

GEORGE: (Standing up) Yes. This is wrong!

JERRY: Sing it, sister!

GEORGE: Just because a candy bar fails to fall from its perch..!

JERRY: Uhhh..

GEORGE: ..does not imply transfer of ownership. Moe, Sol, orů Lem is not gonna get away with this!

Also, his solution:

GEORGE: All I want is my seventy-five cents back, an apology, and for him to be fired!

In the early commentaries, Elaine is always commenting on Jerry's lame shirts.

The Strike is also a fantastic episode. You have:

FRANK: Many Christmases ago, I went to buy a doll for my son. I reach for the last one they had - but so did another man. As I rained blows opon him, I realized

there had to be another way!

KRAMER: What happened to the doll?

FRANK: It was destroyed. But out of that, a new holiday was born. "A Festivus for the rest of us!"

KRAMER: That musta been some kind of doll.

FRANK: She was.


and

FRANK: Welcome, new comers. The tradition of Festivus begins with the airing of grievances. I got a lot of problems with you people! And now you're gonna hear about it! You, Kruger. My son tells me your company stinks!

GEORGE: Oh, God.

FRANK: (To George) Quiet, you'll get yours in a minute. Kruger, you couldn't smooth a silk sheet if you had a hot date with a babe.. I lost my train of thought.

AND

GWEN: I guess this is the ugly girl I've been hearing about.

ELAINE: Hey, I was in a shvitz for 6 hours. Give me a break.

(Gwen leaves, Jerry follows)

JERRY: Gwen. Gwen, wait! Ah! (runs back to his seat) Bad lighting on the porch.

My friends and I always used to throw "you couldn't smooth a silk sheet if you had a hot date..." into arguments.

I don't think so, I was going to check the actual episode (The Bottle Deposit), but Wikipedia was quicker.

Mr. Wilhelm is delighted with the job George did on the project; however, George has no idea what he did or how he did it. Unknowingly to George, Mr. Wilhelm had forgotten to take his medication, which would explain his compliment.

Why don't you go get a glass of orange juice and spill it all over yourself like a big dumb baby



One of my all time favorite Seinfeld moment/concept is from the early season six episode "The Couch" when George is too lazy to read Breakfast at Tiffany's, so he decides to rent the film version instead, but it's already been rented out. So he finds out the address of the (black) family that rented it and goes to their apartment to plead his bizarre request to watch the film with them. They hesitantly comply. He makes a complete rear end of himself, etc.

Anyways, the hilarious part is that almost a whole year later, toward the end of season 6, in the episode "The Diplomat's Club", George suspects his boss thinks he's racist, so he goes around trying to make black friends so he can introduce them to his boss & impress him.

He ends up remembering the black family, and awkwardly tries to befriend the father. This of course makes him look utterly insane & creepy.

I love the fact that because George has barely interacted with any African-Americans, his desperation for his boss's approval causes him to contact a black family that he briefly interacted with almost a year ago.

George is the greatest sitcom character ever to exist.
