The one where they all take a pact to refrain from masturbating was great. And Kramer coming into the room and slamming the money down saying "I'm out" was classic.
Putty was a great character, too.
who was Jerry's hottest girlfriend Vic

You didn't ask me but...
Sidra was number 1. Melissa my number 2
I liked the one where they debate if her tittys are real and Elaine falls into them in the sauna room.
And the one where her parents find out they are making out during Schindlers List. She also sees George's shrinkage.
Not that she's one but I think I saw an appearance from Skyler of Breaking Bad.
Funniest moment in the series is George's mother publicly berating him for masturbating while she's in the hospital.
"I come home and find my son treating his body like an amusement park!"
"Too bad you can't do that for a living!"
George! I'm huuuuungryyyyyy!
Hang on, ma. Hang on...

Continuing the "Seinfeld Curse" talk:
I always thought that was a product of the success of the individual sitcoms, be it: MASH Cheers Cosby Seinfeld Friends Raymond, Big Bang Theory or whatever, these shows take mediocre performances by B or C list actors and transform them into household names. By season 5 if they land with audience that long these sitcom actors want 1mil+ an episode.
When Jim Parsons moves on in a couple years he's going to want big money from a studio to take a risk on a new show and character that is close to his current character, but not too close. I can't stand BBT and don't understand how it's different from dozens of failures, but the public watches it and that's all that matters.
What's the real difference between a season 1 cancelation and season 2 character development, success, and emmys? Seinfeld was slow season 1. I'd argue very little separates all time historic sitcom success from typical bull$#@! 1 and dones.
The only real exceptions I can think of are Anniston, Cosby, and maybe Ted Danson (although he had a less severe n-word incident than Richards at his post Cheers mid90s peak) during their respective eras. No one is excited for a show or movie just because Schwimmer or Malcom Jamal Warner is in it. Cranston and JLD took years of being successful JAGs before they were recognized as actual all star talents.
"Every day it's something else with you. I don't know anything about you anymore. Who are you? What kind of life are you leading? Who knows what you're doing? Maybe you're making porno films."
"Yeah, I'm Buck Naked."
I'd go with the woman from the Tractor Story.
Also the chick with the southern accent that Jerry dated after George
The one at the Hamptons who saw George's shrinkage
The one that was so goodlooking she could get sold out theater tickets and get Jerry out of a speeding ticket.
Jerry and George both pulled some top-shelf trim.
Edited to add Lori Laughlin
Also "Grace" from "Will & Grace." Of course, she played a racist and anti-Semite... (and anti-dentite).
Started googling some of these names to remind me of what they looked like, and found this helpful link that contains all SIXTY-SIX of Jerry's girlfriends (and also has links to compilations of George, Kramer, and Elaine's significant others). Some definite smoke-shows in there.

Wait, Vic, you'd never seen Seinfeld until recently? Mind blown. I have seen every Seinfeld episode probably a minimum 20 times. I probably catch 4-5 episodes/week on cable re-runs.
Taxi is next on my list. Plan to watch that in the next months.
I'll be disappointed if you don't like Taxi, it's in my Top5 comedies. Just loved Rev. Jim and hated Latka(hated Andy Kaufman, period.)
Andy Kaufman was brilliant as Latka on Taxi. He was a comedic genius but also at least a little bit insane. He did some bat$#@! crazy stunts but some of his standup was truly original.
"You mean the panties your mother laid out for you?"
I've seen the episode many times, but it wasn't until recently that I heard this line on TBS. Was it edited out for its initial syndication run?
Since we're talking about Taxi on a Seinfeld thread, let's not forget the first Elaine.
I think we touched on Taxi in the Cheers thread I made. Isn't Carla from Cheers real life husband (or at one time) on Taxi?
Ahhh ok I had no idea it was Devito. Is he as funny on there as he is on Its Always Sunny?
I need to start that in the next month. I didn't realize it had all of them on it. Sounds like an all star cast.
Would you say it's better than All In The Family?
I like both All in the Family and Taxi, but if you put a gun to my head and made me choose, I'd probably choose All in the Family.
To give an example of a plot from Taxi - Jim (a homeless wino who hangs around the Taxi company) gets a bit of money in one episode and immeidately starts giving it away. Everyone calls him crazy, so he makes a deal - he'll give everyone a small share of his money, and they have to go and give their share to someone else, and afterwards, if they can come back and tell them that doing so didn't make them feel great, then he'll keep the rest of his money. So the rest of the episode is individual stories of good deeds by all the main characters, who, at the end, agree that giving the money away felt too good to deny. And in the end, everyone is happy and loving each other. Really no conflict in the episode at all.
