Seinfeld isn’t just a TV show, it’s a way of life. Not a day goes by that I don’t directly or indirectly quote the show. To this day I can’t look at a box of Junior Mints without saying “It’s chocolate, its peppermint- it’s delicious!”.
I kept holding out hope that one day, Netflix would pick up the complete Seinfeld series but alas that never came to fruition. Then came the announcement I have been waiting for, CraveTV is here, and with it comes a massive catalog of TV shows I care about, most importantly SEINFELD!!
In honour of this announcement, I am counting down my 10 favourite Seinfeld episodes.
10. The Reverse Peephole
“My back is killing me.” “Of course, because of that wallet! You’ve got a filing cabinet under half of your ass.” “This is an organizer, a secretary, and a friend.”
“Hey Silvio, look at Jerry here, prancing around in his coat with his purse. Yup, he’s a dandy. He’s a real fancy boy!”
and of course….
9. The Soup Nazi
“Street Toughs took my armoire?”
8. The Opposite
“My name is George. I’m unemployed and I live with my parents.”
“You know who you are? Even Steven”
“So you heard that I was in a car accident , and then decided to stop off for some Jujyfruit?”
“Did I tell you this guy was bonkos?”
“Do you know what’s going on here? Can’t you see what’s happened? I’ve become George.”
7. The Marine Biologist
This scene is perfection:
6. The Bizzaro Jerry
“She had man hands”
“T.C.B, You know, takin’ care o’ business.”
“I don’t even really work here.” “That’s what makes this so difficult.”
5. The Jimmy
As a person with the name Jimmy, this episode is quoted to me at an almost weekly basis.
“Jimmy’s gonna put the moves on Elaine”
“DON’T, TOUCH, JIMMY”
4. The Butter Shave
“I feel like an out of work pornstar”
“Stick a fork in me Jerry, I’m done”
“What’s the deal with cancer?”
3. The Dealership
“High Five ”
“I think I’ve reached a point in my life where I can tell the difference between nougat and cookie.”
“They all have swirling chocolate in the commercials!!!” “Not Skittles”
2. The Strike
“No bagle, no bagle, no bagle”
“A donation has been made in your honour to ‘The Human Fund'”
“You couldn’t smooth a silk sheet, if you had a hot date….I lost my train of thought”
1. The Chicken Roaster
“That’s not going to be good for business…” “That’s not going to be good for anyone”
“Oh, I’m stressed!”
