I always loved this show just because of how Jerry and the gang straight up laughed in each other's faces when a personal tragedy/loss occurred. Its like there was zero compassion at all amongst the four of them. Glorious.

Which came to a climax when Susan died. Elaine's "I'm so...sorry?" is hilarious as is Kramer meta-pondering the strangeness of Susan's death ("Well that's weird...")

Haha yeah it seemed like Elaine was confused as to whether she should mock George or offer her condolences. That's a hosed up group dynamic right there.

I've always loved how George always tries to tell one little lie to get out of doing something and it will end up snowballing into this giant thing that he has to try and hide. If only he could ever admit the first lie.

Also I've heard there's a superman joke in every single show. I knows there's a lot but is there really that many?

You're very probably thinking of "The Opposite" in S5, which is one of my all-time favorite episodes. A variation of this same theme occurs in "The Abstinence" in S8 as well, where George finds a sexual dryspell greatly increases his intellect while the same circumstance has the inverse effect on Elaine.

This was a weird show growing up because pretty much 100% of any names dropped were people I had never heard of. There's a lot of stuff that's much funnier when I rewatch it.

That's the episode where he was trying to avoid his girlfriend so she couldn't break up with him. Then Kramer ends up doing it for her at some fancy restaurant.

'The Susie' - Another favorite. To anyone who doesn't watch too closely; the death of an imaginary person created by Elaine is a heavy load to bear in exactly the same way as Susan's death was to George. She closes out the episode with a spinning dolly shot and an anguished scream of "SUUUUUSE", just like George did the same with "KHAAAAAAN" in 'The Foundation'.

My two favorite Episodes are by far The Pen and The Cheever Letters. Both of those episodes put the cast into a world that's so completely insane they make them look normal. In both stories the people involved are in worlds so isolated they don't even realize that the way they act is abnormal. Which is what Larry David's point was in the finale anyway, except this time about the main characters.

I loved Jerry's explanation of why it showed up at the end of his "Cry, Cry Again" bootleg. "So you cry, and when you see the dancer, you cry again."

When it comes to celebrity appearances, I always liked a then-relatively unknown Brian Posehn's 2-line appearance as another member of the disease actor troop from Kramer and Mickey's gonorrhea storyline.

"The surgeon left a sponge in me."

Reading the script for that episode, I forgot just how many great lines there are. It may be one of my favorite episodes.

I like how terrifying Elaine's father was at the restaurant in "The Jacket". The part where George comes up with a really lovely lie to try and get out of dinner and Jerry goes "Oh yeah, that'd work....he'd clunk our heads together like Moe."

edit: Haha here's the exchange:

JERRY: How are we going to get out of it?
GEORGE: We'll say we're frightened and we have to go home.
JERRY: Yeah, that's good. He'd clunk our heads together like Moe.
GEORGE: I don't know. Just start scratching. Tell him you have the crabs. He was in the military. He'll understand that.

The episode where Jerry goes and heckles Toby in her office (causing her to lose her pinkie toe) is so goddamned good, not just because of Kramer's retelling of the bus story, but also when Jerry is talking to the prop comic. The exchange goes something like this:

quote:

JERRY: So, I went down to the magazine, I pleaded with him to come and see me again, finally he agreed to come down tonight, and he's going to write another article.

RONNIE: I heard you went down to somebody's office and heckled them?

JERRY: drat right! We've been lapdogs long enough!

RONNIE: How could you do that? I mean, everybody's talking about it.

JERRY: Well, it's about time one of us drew a line in the sand.

RONNIE: Jerry, you're like Rosa Parks. You opened the door for all of us. I can't wait till the next time someone heckles me.

JERRY: Yeah, well, won't be long.

The fact that he says "Yeah, well, won't be long" directly to the guy's face, loud enough to be heard cracks me up every time I hear it.

Of all the side characters Jackie Chiles Has to be my favorite. The funniest one though is when he's suing the tobacco company because Kramer aged 50 years in a few days, the greatest of Jackie's public humiliations.

I remember when they had the clip show episode and they showed the filming of the scene where Kramer's face is all hosed up because of the tobacco smoke. I wonder how many takes it took for Jerry to say "your face looks like an old catcher's mitt" without cracking up. They showed him doing it at least 4 times.
