The Top Ten

The Contest
Actually ANY episode that dealt with sex or had an alternate story line about sex are the best ones. Never ever saying the word and only through innuendo, subtext and images, were able to stroll past the censors and have fun at the same time. Best use of the medium for a still uptight and Puritanical American society. Simply brilliant.


I'm out!
Master of my domain
Queen of the castle
King of the castle



"Master of your domain"

2Soup Nazi
You cannot go one solid month or year without someone saying, "No soup for you! " This is what makes this episode a classic!
EVERYONE knows the quote "no soup for you" making this the most popular episode ever
Best character ever and best line ever "No Soup For You! "

4The Opposite

(Episode 86, Season 5)
"Who are you, George Costanza? "
"I'm the opposite of every guy you've ever met. "
- Victoria and George

"This guy could be a little bonkos. "
- Regis Philbin, introducing Kramer

5The Marine Biologist
(Episode 78, Season 5)
"Did you know that the original title for War and Peace was War, What Is It Good For? "
- Jerry

"The sea was angry that day, my friends, like an old man trying to send back soup in a deli. "

6The Gum
The I-M-P-P-C-W... We prefer the Institute.

7The Apology

8The Rye

9The Comeback
If you don't vote for this, then the jerk store just called for you. The way in which the "other side of midnight" plot line was weaved into the "comeback" plot line at the end was very nice. The first time I saw it I about busted a gut when the guy said "His wife's in a coma. "

10The Parking Garage
(Episode 23, Season 3)
"You know, I've been issued a public urination pass by the city because of my condition. Unfortunately, my little brother ran out of the house with it this morning. Him and his friends are probably peeing all over the place. "
- Jerry


It has to be one of the best T.V. moments in history. It is one of those episodes that you'll never forget. Like the Chinese restaurant. You can watch it over and over and it never gets old.
lost in a mall parking garage and Jerry has to pee
