    Let me understand, you got the hen, the chicken and the rooster. The rooster goes with the chicken. So, who's having sex with the hen?

    Like when Seinfeld reached out to Matt and Trey at South Park and they offered him the role of one of the turkeys in the Starvin Marvin episode of the first season.

    You can't have "a little grace." You either have grace, or you...don't

    O.K., fine, I have...no grace.

    And you can't acquire grace.

    Well, I have no intention of "getting" grace.

    Grace isn't something you can pick up at the market.

    Alright, alright, look - I don't have grace, I don't want grace...I don't even say grace, O.K.?

    Love the often overlooked Kramer and Rick scenes from that great episode.

    Hey ladies, it's the Saab 900! What do you think?!? Can I interest you in a little supplemental restraint!

    ...

    But for a variety of reasons I don't want to be the one responsible for purchasing costly gasoline.

    ...

    Kramer and that other guy, oh they went further to the left of the slash than anyone ever dreamed. It's good to have you back, Stan.

    It's Rick by the way.

    No time!

    if you like seinfeld and podcasts the seincast is a pretty entertaining listen. especially on long road trips.

By season 5 if they land with audience that long these sitcom actors want 1mil+ an episode.
    Note on MASH. Harry Morgan had been on two successful shows, "Pete and Gladys" and "Dragnet." He tried to tell people up one side and down the other, "Do NOT walk off from a successful show!" Everybody has a project for you as long as the show is going on. As soon as the show ends, you're yesterday's news.
    It seemed to be a big thing in the eighties that guys like MacLean Stevenson, Gary Burghoff, Larry Linville, Patrick Duffy and all these other people would walk off from a show because they were going to be big stars, and they ended up maybe doing Fantasy Island. John Travolta is the only person I can think of that walked off a TV show and ended up doing well.
    The Seinfeld people did it right. They made their money, and they don't have to do anything except what they want, now.

    You sure about that? Just going from memory, I thought they came up with a story line about his uncle dying and the family farm needed him to come home, so he got a discharge. He trained Klinger to take over his duties and then left his teddy bear behind in Korea, as I recall.

    Ironically, he was actually on MASH twice, in two different roles

    Was unaware if this was posted previously, but Festivus was a thing that one of Seinfeld's writers lived through as a kid:

    http://uproxx.com/tv/seinfeld-festivus-true-story/

    Today, you can buy Festivus T-shirts and ugly sweaters, and you can decorate your desk with a miniature pole, or just order the real thing for your home, all while praying that Ben & Jerry’s brings back Festivus ice cream. You can even piss your co-workers off by donating to an actual Human Fund in their honor, and they’ll have to act like they’re appreciative because the money goes to supporting arts-education programs in Cleveland. And what makes it all so remarkable isn’t just that the writer responsible for the Festivus story didn’t think it would even make it into the episode, but that he really hoped that no one would ever find out that it was a holiday that his own father invented.

    The real Festivus was created in 1966 by author Daniel O’Keefe, not out of a hatred of all of the commercial and religious aspects of Christmas, but as a unique celebration. His son, Dan O’Keefe, grew up to become a writer for Seinfeld and worked on episodes like “The Pothole,” “The Blood,” and “The Frogger,” among others. But “The Strike” forever became his legacy when the show’s other writers caught wind of the story of this bizarre holiday ritual.

    “It is a fake holiday my dad made up in the ’60s to celebrate the anniversary of his first date with my mother, and it was something that we celebrated as a family in a very peculiar way through the ‘70s, and then I never spoke of it again,” O’Keefe tells us. “I had actually forgotten about it because I had blotted it out of my mind.”
    If the younger O’Keefe had his way, Festivus would have never become a part of Seinfeld lore, let alone TV history, but his brother ended up spilling the beans to Alec Berg and Jeff Schaffer, the other two writers credited on “The Strike.”

    “My brother Mark mentioned it to Jeff Schaffer,” O’Keefe recalls. “Jeff told Alec and Dave [Mandel] and, as I recall, they had me meet at Swingers, this diner in Hollywood, and then one of them sat on the other side of me so I couldn’t leave. They asked about Festivus and I said I didn’t really want to talk about it. They said, ‘Well, Mark told us about it,’ and I said, ‘That f*cker.’ They said, ‘We think it might be funny in the show,’ and I said, ‘I think it’s a mistake and sort of a family shame.’ No one had ever expressed any interest in it before, but I swear I thought it was going to be cut out in the edits.”

    “He was like, ‘Really? You want to do that?’ I was like, ‘Yes! Yes!’” Schaffer explains. “That’s the thing with Seinfeld stories, the real ones are always the best ones. You can almost always tell, ‘Oh, that really happened to you,’ when people would pitch stories. There’s a nuance to reality sometimes that is just perfect. We could have sat in a room for a billion years and we never would have made up Festivus. It’s crazy and hilarious and just so funny and so disturbing. It’s awesome, we gotta put it on television.
    The airing of grievances, however, was an entirely accurate portrayal of the original Festivus. “Airing your grievances was a large portion of the original and it was done into a tape recorder,” O’Keefe explains. “I think my father did occasionally refer to it as airing your grievances. So that was real, and being made to sing into a tape recorder. Songs we learned in school. Those tapes exist and are held in a secure location.”

    The funniest scene to me that still makes me die laughing to this day is when George thinks he bought Jon Voight's car and after the realization that it is a John Voight Jerry deadpans, "sure. and sometimes I spell my name with an "I"" as he can't contain his Schadenfreude laughter.

    Most of the stuff on the show actually happened to the writers. It's the main reason they replaced them every season. They'd use up all their best stories and then move on.

    Kramer: Well, I got gonnorhea.

    Elaine: That seems about right.

    Kramer: That's what they gave me.

    George: They? The government?
