We recently got broadcast cable after three years without TV. Ack! I've become addicted to the Seinfeld reruns on Fox.

I think the first two seasons are the best. My favorite episode is the "Vandelay Industries" one. Either that or the one where an NYU reporter thinks that Jerry & George are gay, or the toilet paper episode with Jamie Gertz. ("I can't spare a square. I don't have a square to spare.") Oh, and the one where Jerry and Elaine go to Florida and Jerry gets two black eyes from scuba diving and Elaine gets all high on muscle relaxers after hurting her back on Mr. & Mrs. Seinfeld's fold-out bed.:LOL

What's your favorite?

Id have to say my favorites are:

The Festivus Episode

The Soup Nazi Episode

The Bro/Manzierre Episode


I really liked any episode Putty was in also. That guy cracks me up!!!

My favorite is the episode in which George gets fired from Pendant Publishing for sleeping with the nighttime cleaning lady. His response is classic:

Was that wrong?

Should I not have done that?

I'm gonna have to plead ignorance on this one...

if only I had been informed that this sort of thing was frowned upon.

My life is a Seinfeld episode!

killing off Susan and the saga after makes me laugh.

Putty/Puddy (how do you spell that I have no idea) is the best and the episode where he and Elaine see the priest is one of my all time favorites.

Kramer with the fried chicken place.

the marble rye

Elaine dancing

Actually I think my list could be too long...I like most of them and the only ones I don't like are the backwards one, some of the ones where Jerry/George are tied up pitching the sitcom and the finale, just dull.

Ohh, Puddy is hysterical. I love the episode where Elaine discovers he is a Christian and he thinks she is going to hell and he is not.

The Marble Rye

Soup Nazi
we stood on the real NYC line once to try it out after the episode aired.

But I wasn't impressed.

My fave is Elaine's nipple on the Xmas card...when she shoves George's head into her cleavage, yelling "Fine...See?!?!" I nearly died laughing.

I also like the one where George is dating the woman who looks like Jerry, and at the very end when she gets gum in her hair and cuts a bunch of it off, and then looks even more like Jerry.:LOL

Manhands

The one where Kramer rubs himself w/butter & tans, then Neuman visualizes him as a turkey-so sick!

The suede jacket with the pink striped lining

The puffy shirt

The one where Molly Shannon works at Elaine's office & goes all psycho on Elaine when she thinks she was making fun of how she walks w/out moving her arms

Master of my domain, of course!

The one where Elaine gives a woman she doesn't like a bra as a gift, because she never wears one-and the woman shows up at her office wearing it as a top, then later causes Kramer to have a car accident when he sees her walking down the street.

Kramer as Calvin Klein model. Also when he gets a job.

The whole J Peterman thing is just hysterically funny-the urban sombrero & the rat hat!

When George & Jerry take a guys limo at the airport who turns out to be a white supremicist

Tee hee hee). If forgot about manhands! That was so funny. What about the one where the girl Jerry is dating looks beautiful one minute but at other times she is ugly. And the Kenny Rogers chicken episode where Kramer can't get enough of it is hysterical!

I love everyone...it's my favorite sitcom ever. I've seen every episode at least twice.

One of my favorite lines ( and please excuse me if I don't get it perfect ): " Oh, and yes, they're real...and they're spectacular! "

:

Love the new smilies!!!

I think currently they are not out on DVD because the cast/other members did not have DVD releases in their contracts and it is messy. This could be some weird rumor but that is all I have heard concerning the DVD.

Oh I forgot the girl whose name rhymes with a female body part...oh I miss watching this show.

When Kramer is mistakenly given someone else's vanity plates: ASSMAN.

"Mr. Kramer, according to the state of New York, you ARE the Assman.":LOL

The shrinkage one, :LOL

George: Elaine, do women know about shrinkage?

Elaine: You mean, like in the laundry?

I never watched the show while it was running, but reruns have converted me.

I love so many of them.

The backwards one, where they are all in India, where Jerry has slept with George's girlfriend and Elaine slept with the groom.

Elaine: What's the big deal, Jerry slept with Karen, I slept with Pintor, who cares?

George: YOU SLEPT WITH THE GROOM?

Anything with Puddy. The Germaphobe one. The way he wore the germ charm on a necklace. Kramer preparing the salad in the shower.

The one where everyone was faking it.

George: Do you feel the way after sex that you do when you're done with the risotto?

Woman: I feel full after the resotto

The Gonnerhea (sp) one, with the Tractor story :LOL

Jerry: It's me!

And Newman, I just love Newman. Again, from the backwards episode.

Jerry: Does your girlfriend have to be here?

Newman: Does yours? (looking at Kramer)

I wouldn't say it's my favorite, but I like the one where they watch the pilot because they have everyone who had a story line that season watching and making comments--also because DH's friend Brian plays "the butler."

I do like the storyline with the virgin (Jane Leeves) and how she ends up with JFKjr.

Also love Puddy and the one where George is trying to buy a car from him. Also the one where they are trying to meet at the movies and everyone keeps describing the others to the ticket taker.
