If my friend can't remember a name, he'll say Bob Sacramento regardless of gender.

Bob Sacamano.

As in:

Jerry: "You know my friend Bob Sacamano..."
Elaine: "I thought he was Kramer's friend."
Jerry: "Well he called last night about 3am and we got to talking. He sells Russian hats down at Battery Park. 40 bucks."
Elaine: "40 bucks? Are they sable?"
Jerry: "No, but the difference is negligible"
Kramer: "Oh yeah, I like this idea."

The Chicken Roaster is still one of my favorite episodes. Jerry turning into Kramer is great.

Remember...it's not a lie, if you believe it.

This is the best George line and I truly believe that it is the best advice possible for fooling a lie detector test.

Also, the George eating from the trash episode came on today and it's so hilarious because it goes from George eating the trash to him wiping off a windshield with a newspaper to him coming out of the bathroom with no shirt on. Also it has Pittman doing Hitler.

And it ends with the gymnast telling Jerry:

"In my country, they speak of a man so virile, so potent, that to spend a night with such a man is to enter a world of sensual delights most women dare not dream of. This man is known as The Comedian. You may tell jokes Mr. Jerry Seinfeld, but you are no Comedian."

edit: I've always wondered, are zip codes really meaningless?

No, ZIP codes are not meaningless at all.

Postal zones for large cities had been around since the 1940's, but a more general system was needed by the 1960s. The 'father' of the ZIP code (it should be capitalized since it stands for Zone Improvement Plan), Robert Moon, actually submitted the idea for ZIP codes back in 1944, but it wasn't implemented until 1963 and even then ZIP codes weren't mandatory until 1967. Also, the USPS only used the first 3 numbers of Moons plan.

The first 3 numbers of a ZIP code represent the sectional center facility, which it just a large processing center. All the mail for the area goes there first and then it is sorted again by the last two numbers in the zip code. From there the mail is sent out to correct local post office which then sorts the local mail into the delivery routes.

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.

Sorry to call you out on this as it is very pedantic. However, what I've bolded is somewhat incorrect. In most every publication house's style guide you'll see that acronyms, such as Zip, Laser, Fifa, Nato, etc. only have the first letter capitalized (being proper nouns) since the abbreviation is pronounced as a word. You would only capitalize every letter with an initialism, where every letter is said such as USA (which is not pronounced Oh-sa).

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?

It's Bob Sacamano. counter-pedanted!

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:

The woman who played George's girlfriend was gorgeous. Probably because of her eyes. Anybody know her name?

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.

Will never get tired of "Who is this?".

Kramer's stogie-based physical comedy from "The Reverse Peephole" (backwards, dropping it with his slack jaw).

"Who is this?" will indeed never get old and I really hope I get to use it naturally one day.

However, in the .gif that was posted, Jerry is clearly saying 'Uncle Leo?' which just sets George off even more than a "Who is this?"

I know that. I use "Who is this?" as shorthand for any time the characters get up to some phone hijinx at someone else's expense. Happens 4 or 5 times throughout the series.

Jerry: "UNCLE LEO!?"
Elaine: "Oh, that's nice."

Heh, I was watching 'The Dealership' today and got a kick out of Elaine using 'Who is this?' on Jerry.

Haha, I never really noticed that Jerry, George and Elaine all throw like 4 bucks a piece for a tip to the black waitress when they are talking about Elaine's boyfriend being black.

I also love that when they find out they are both white, Elaine asks 'Wanna go to the Gap?'

Izzy Mandelbaum is Lloyd Bridges - didn't have any idea.

Lloyd Bridges is awesome and Seinfeld was one of the last things he did in his life.

I think he has the longest listing I have ever seen on IMDb. Lloyd Bridges has 216 entries as an actor!

Although about 20-30 of them are (uncredited) stuff from his early career, but they did credits different then and some of it would be credited if it was made in today's era.

I just love the fact that Kramer has everyday balloons.

The real question is why you don't have everyday ballons?

I don't know why, but I was just thinking about the Van Buren Boys episode, specifically the Kramer/Peterman sideplot. I absolutely love how Petermans apartment is so plain and boring and how he doesn't do anything special at home. (Oh, drat! I forgot to buy plant food again, I'll bet I have a coupon for it.)

But the best part is after Elaine pitches the 'improved' pants story, but Peterman won't have it. Then when she tells the real story, I lose it every time Peterman replies with 'The very pants I was returning!'

Are those George's burnt hands from the hand-model episode?
