Seinfeld always struck me as an excellent example of comedy being best when it's created by a small team of people who have a vision in mind as opposed to comedy by committee that a lot of shows seem to have these days.

I love that they worked their philosophy about this into the show using George in the episode "The Comeback". After he tells the group about his great "jerk store" comeback, they all start coming up with different ideas for better comebacks and George freaks out and says..

All right, all right. You see? This is why I hate writing with a large group. Everybody has their own little opinions, and it all gets homogenized, and you lose the whole edge of it. Iím going with jerk store! Jerk store is the line! Jerk store!

Brilliant.

I wish I could actually get my girlfriend/friends to actually give the show a chance, because unless you have absolutely no sense of humor it's hilarious, but Seinfeld (the sitcom and the actor) is decidedly uncool now.

Are you sure? I feel confident it was foreshadowed at least once. On the other hand, we do hardly ever see the Elaine's apartment set throughout the series.

One of my favorite George outburts was when Susan's parents agree to go to the Hamptons with him.

"Speak now, or we are headed to the Hamptons. It's a two-hour drive.
Once you get in that car, we are going all the way... to the Hamptons...All
right, you wanna get nuts? COME ON! LET'S GET NUTS!"


George: "And that leads into the master bedroom."
Mrs. Ross: "Tell us more."
George: "You want to hear more? The master bedroom opens into the solarium."
Mr. Ross: "Another solarium?"
George: "Yes, two solariums. Quite a find. And I have horses, too."
Mr. Ross: "What are their names?"
George: "Snoopy and Prickly Pete. Should I keep driving?"
Mrs. Ross: "Oh, look, an antique stand. Pull over. We'll buy you a
housewarming gift."
George, chuckling to himself: "Housewarming gift."
George, swerving the car to go to the antique stand: "All right, we're taking

My favorite episode is The Race. Kramer as Santa, Mickey as an elf, Elaine dating the commie, Jerry dating Lois and the Superman theme throughout with the perfect climax...

Every quote from Kramer about communism is hilarious.

quote:

KID: I want a racing car set.

KRAMER: Ho ho ho ho A racing car set! Those are assembled in Tai Wan by kids like you. And these Coleman pigs, they sell it at triple the cost.

KID: But I want a racing car set.

KRAMER: You see kid, you're being bamboozaled. These capatalist fat cats are inflating the profit margin and reducing your total number of toys.

KID: Hey, this guy's a commie!

quote:

KRAMER: Each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.

MICKEY: What does that mean?

KRAMER: Well, if you've got needs and abilities that's a pretty good combination.

MICKEY: So what if I want to open up a delicatessen?

KRAMER: There are no delicatessens under Communism.

MICKEY: Why not?

KRAMER: Well, because the meats are divided into a class system. You got Pastrami and Corned Beef in one class and Salami and Bologna in another. That's not right.

MICKEY: So you can't get Corned Beef?

KRAMER: Well, you know, if you're in the Politburo, maybe.
