Oh no, you said a mailam I know, you're you're a mailman I know!

Speaking of, Jerry as a mailman was hilarious. Giving mail to a bum,
"Mail on a Sunday?
"Oops!"

and
"Too many people got their mail...80%! No one at the post office has ever broken the 50% mark! It's like the four minute mile!"

What about after George finds out Susan's parents are starting a foundation in her name based on what Jerry said during the funeral (which he just ripped off from Wrath of Khan).

And then he gets beat up because he didn't give the scholarship to the kid who then joins the Van Buren Boys.

Edit: Nd speaking of watching it with parents...I was watching the one where Jerry tries to do the roommate switch, and George comes up with the menage a trois. I had to ask my parents what that was cause I was too young to know yet.

Jerry:Alright, can I have my dollar back?

Before Seinfeld, muffin tops weren't a thing. I could go buy a muffin top at Atlanta Bread Company right now. That's lasting impact. I'll tell you right now the ABC doesn't make them the "right" way, but I hear it's prohibitively difficult to get rid of the stumps.

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.

WescottF1 posted:

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

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'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.)

Yes. Stanley Stadowski is a great character.

Edit: His character in Airheads sucked balls, though...but I blame that on the writing, and casting someone who is great as playing wacky, oddball characters as more of a straight man. I mean...Kramer as a business executive? Only if his briefcase is full of crackers!

George freaks out and asks "how am I going to explain this?!!" And you watch as he gains composure, his GF walks in, he hands it to her and completely pulls off the most ridiculous explanation ever.
