My dad is an absolutely massive Seinfeld fan, so I grew up watching it every so often with him, and I liked it, but I definitely didn't really "get" it at the time since I was younger. I remember going to a party my uncle had for the finale, though. As I grew older, we'd watch reruns every night - no matter how many times we'd seen them before, and over time they just got funnier and funnier - and I think that that's really the show's strength, that parts of it are so multilayered and tangled with each other that there's always part of a quote that you missed, or a minor character that you passed over, or a facial expression or fake movie title or anything that slipped by the first 10 times that makes it that much funnier.

Just for the record, though, the best minor character is Kenny Bania (with Puddy a close second). How about Mendy's? OOOOOH!

Incorporating parts of Seinfeld into your real life is probably the best part of the show. Anytime my girlfriend and I are arguing about something trivial and one of us convinces the other that we're right, the winning side will usually rub it in with a "ah, here's a fact: I'M THE WIZ! NOBODY BEATS ME!"

I totally do the "yeah that's right" too. It's hard to make a good Puddy face. You have to kind of jut your jaw out, too.

I was in NYC last weekend and I ate at Tom's Restaurant, which Monk's Cafe is based on in Seinfeld. It has that familiar "RESTAURANT" sign every time they cut to the restaurant. The food there was really loving good, and for a good price. I don't think they had a big salad though.

Should have gone to Mendy's.

Darling, you see where that glass is? How that glass is near the edge of the table. You got the whole table there to put the glass, why you chose the absolute edge, so half the glass is hanging off the table, you breath and that glass falls over, then you're gonna have broken glass on the carpet, embedded in the carpet fibers, deep, deep in the shag, broken glass, bits of broken glass that you never get out. you can't get it out with a vacuum cleaner. Even on your hands and knees with a magnifying glass, you can't get all the pieces, and then you think you got it all and two years later, you're walkin' barefoot and you step on a piece of broken glass and you kill yourself, is that what you want? I don't think you want that, is it? .. Do ya? Huh?
