The Top Ten Most Quotable Seinfeld Quotes

The Top Ten
1 No soup for you! - The Soup Nazi

Not only the best Seinfeld quote, from the best Seinfeld episode, but one of the ten best episodes of any show ever! I also liked Giddy Up, The jerk store called, and Elaine's best quote was not The dingo ate your baby but her trademark Get Out, followed by her chest push.

Very versatile line from a brilliant episode. You can use it in multiple situations.

Even if you don't watch Seinfeld, you have still heard of this quote.

2 Not that there's anything wrong with that! - Jerry

It's clever, it's funny, it was bold, and it will be around for a long time. With this line, they have accomplished making everyone comfortable so they can really focus on enjoying a good joke. Something they didn't really achieve with racial jokes (not racist, just about race). Anyway, this line (and episode) is my favorite.

This quote shows how the show was ahead of its time. Everyone knows now that there's nothing wrong with being gay!

What would today's society think of that episode?

3 Serenity Now! - Frank Costanza

Hard to believe that this quote, when said viciously, is really a good way to relieve stress. But it does. And I use it more than I should. My post content quality indicator keeps going green and then gray. SERENITY NOW. That's better.

Frank was such a great character, as were all the parents. Too bad Elaine's dad never made more appearances. "Master of the house, doling out the charm..." Ha!

Yeah, Serenity Now, Insanity later. I loved it when Kramer flipped out in the apartment.

4 Maybe the dingo ate your baby! - Elaine

This one came out of the blue in that episode. The tone of Elaine's voice matched the emotion perfectly. Excellent quote representative of the best of Seinfeld.

Elaine's tone when saying it, mocking the person she was talking to, made it a memorable quote.

Loved it. Plus, Daphne has an almost identical call on Frasier!

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

One of the best episodes (The Marine Biologist) and perhaps the greatest closing scene and episode conclusion, from that line through the tie-in with Kramer's golf ball!

The cartoon version of this scene on YouTube is great. And these pretzels are really making me thirsty now.

I just imagined the old man. Funny!

6 Yada, yada, yada.

I love every Seinfeld line, but Yada, yada, yada. This one is the best!

7 I don't wanna be a pirate! - Jerry
8 These pretzels are making me thirsty. - Kramer

No matter who says this or when it is said, I always use it. I still laugh every single time this line is played during Seinfeld reruns. It is just too funny. I use this line also kind of like Frank Costanza's stress relief line, "Serenity now." I just use "These pretzels are making me thirsty" when I get stressed out, and it just melts the stress away and gives me something to laugh at.

Every time I see anything by Woody Allen, I think of this line.

The best part is when George shouts it out the window.

9 It's not a lie if you believe it - George

Not just a quote - a complete philosophy.

10 And you want to be my latex salesman - Jerry

I use this every time someone does something stupid or performs a clumsy act.

The Contenders
11 There was shrinkage! - George

This is where I learned that men experience this!

Hasn't everyone had this issue while swimming?

12 Hoochie Mama! - Frank Costanza

I say this ALL THE TIME! But what about "I'm out there Jerry, and I'm loving every minute of it!" by Kramer? Or from the same episode, "I feel like a naked innocent boy roaming the countryside." Both refer to the fact that he is not wearing any underwear at all. Classic!

13 Am I crazy? Or am I just so sane I blew your mind? - Kramer
14 I won a contest - George
15 Hello... Newman - Jerry

This is probably the most quotable quote from Seinfeld. You could directly use it toward someone with whom you do not get along. You don't even have to use Newman's name. You could just say Hello, whoever, in a similar voice to how Jerry talks to Newman.

Yeah, there's one kid in my class, Eric, who I just started calling Newman. He didn't know what that was until he saw an episode with this in it. Now it's:
"Hello, Newman."
"Hello, Jerry."

This is a revolution in my school. You can go to anyone and just say, "Hello, Newman." So funny.

16 You gotta see the baby! - Carol
17 Look away, I'm hideous. - Kramer

Okay, this should be number 2 or so. I LOVE Kramer. He's awesome. So funny. These are my favorites:
"No soup for you."
"But I don't wanna be a cowboy."
But my all-time favorite, one I use every day, is "Hello, Newman," or just "Newman!"

18 Sponge worthy - Elaine
19 I'm back baby! - George
20 Who's gonna turn down a Junior Mint? It's chocolate, it's's delicious! - Kramer
21 DIE DIE! - Elaine

I disliked this movie, so this episode really cracked me up.

22 I'm out there Jerry, and I'm LOVIN' every minute of it! - Kramer

I would put this line higher than #19. One of the best!

23 They're real and they're spectacular - Jerry's girlfriend (played by Teri Hatcher)
24 Giddyup! - Kramer
25 Can you spare a square? - Elaine
