Peckerhead isn't used enough as an insult if you ask me.


Seinfeld was a show I remember watching with my family during dinner as a kid. Most of the jokes went over my head but I still found something to laugh at.

The finale was kinda meh until SNL did their skit with Jerry being sent to Oz, then it became amazing.

And my favorite episode is probably tied between "The Contest" and "The Betrayal".

Edit: I found that Oz parody. Watch it and enjoy. http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1...ld-in-oz_people

I hate cold showers. They stimulate me and then I don't know what to do.

If you can't remember which episode a certain line is from and want to look like some kind of Svenjolly, Seinfeld Scripts really comes in handy.

How do you people date girls that don't know Seinfeld? Your girlfriends should have their own schools.

My favorite Elaine moment is when she tells the Priest that she and Puddy are just "havin' a good time."

The Priest and Elaine making Devil's horns and going "Blaaaahhh!!" while Putty has a look of horror on his face (well...as much as Putty can have a look of horror...) slays me.

It's even funnier that Puddy is religious when you also consider the episode when Puddy scares the poo poo out of the El Salvadorian priest while wearing devil facepaint.

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.

I recently rewatched the Seinfeld finale. My wife had never seen it, but she really likes the show, so I got it for her. It ended up being a lot better than I recalled. It was surprising.

I remember thinking that upon rewatching it later.

I was only 13 when the show ended, but I'd pretty much been raised on it and reruns of Cheers thanks to my dad, grandpa, uncle and cousins who all quoted it endlessly at Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, etc.

When the finale originally aired even I, at 13, was like WTF IS THIS?

But now, after the fact, I realized it was a really, really solid episode that I discounted because my expectations were so high initially.

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."

My favorite George moment right there:

"Hey what is this? A Mounds bar?"
"Its a TWIX! They're all TWIX! It was a setup! BUT YOU'VE SCREWED ME! YOU'VE SCREWED ME AGAIN! Now hurry up and give me one!"

According to IMDB she was born in 1966 and was on the show from 1992-97, so they're close enough.

The Soup Nazi episode re-aired the other night. That's always been one of my favorites with the subplots about Kramer being scared by the two gay guys who take Elaines armoire and Jerry and his girlfriend's constant debate about which one is "Schmoopie". Great stuff.

Tell me about it! I found muffuin tops on sale at Price Chopper a few yars ago and only a couple of my friends knew why i was so excited...but you're right, they bake just the top, when what they really need to do is bake a whole muffin, and "pop" the top.

I mean...if you get some specialty really shallow muffin tins, you'd only be throwing out like 1/4" of crappy stump anyway.

I also always loved the exchange between Elaine and Mr....umm...Mr.Somethingorother from Pendant Publishing
Elaine: And can we get rid of the exclamation point...I mean, it's not "Top of the muffin...TO YOU!!"
Mr.Somethingorother: Yes...it is!

A bit or irony there, since he previously yelled at Elaine when she worked for him for putting in too many exclamation points on her boyfriend's book that she edited.

Wow...she looked a lot older. I'm not alone in thinking this, right? I mean...in her first episode, she was only 26?! She already looked 40 by then! Not in a bad way, she didn't look "old," just a lot more mature-looking than 26.

And I'll 2nd/3rd Julia Louis-Dryfus looking good. Maybe it's just me, but she looked much better in the later seasons with the straight hair. She still looks good now in her 50's. Cougar, ahoy!

I don't think even the shallow tins can work effectively. If the volume of the 'top' comes from the batter rising as it bakes, how can an an equivalent muffin top arise from less than a full stump? Maybe screwing with the recipe to effect greater expansion, but then that's not authentic, either.

This thread has inspired me to watch the whole show from the beginning. I was pretty hazy on some of the earlier episodes, so it's weird to see the show being so grounded. I'm only a bit into season 2 but they still aren't completely terrible human beings, just kind of idiosyncratic. It will be interesting to see how they transition and where the tipping point is.

It's also funny to see some of these threads that have run throughout all of Larry David's stuff. For example, Jerry in The Ex-Girlfriend saying "I don't return fruit. Fruit's a gamble. I know that going in". It reminded me of Larry saying apricots are "a low-yield fruit" in one of the most recent Curb episodes almost 20 years later.

Hah, I love it whenever Jerry asks who is on the phone. Like when Sophie (the tractor story woman) calls Jerry and he really doesn't know who it is.

Jerry: Hello?
Sophie: Hey. It's me.
Jerry: Elaine?
Sophie: No, it's me.
Jerry: George?
Sophie: Jerry, it's Sophie. I can't believe you don't recognize my voice.
Jerry: Oh, I knew it was you, I was joking. I'm a comedian.


Or when George calls Jerry and frantically asks him for a favor, and Jerry just responds smugly: "Who is this?"
