Top Ten Seinfeld Episodes


The Top Ten

1 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. - mgenet

There are so many funny moments, such as George's mother screaming that he treats his body like an amusement park, Kramer going out the contest and Jerry asking if you're still master of your domain. There are some other good episodes, such as The Chinese Restaurant, The Soup Nazi, The Marine Biologist etc but this is the best.

Yes this is the best Seinfeld episode. Absolute genius. To take such a taboo subject and handle it in such a tasteful yet hilarious way is absolutely remarkable. The brilliant writing of Larry David coming up with situations like the curtain in the hospital room, the "treating his body like an amusement park", the wager in the diner, Kramer''s "I'm out! ", and so many other parts make this the most original, and absolutely number one episode.

Ranked 1 on T.V. guides top 100 T.V. episodes. EVER. If that doesn't make it master of it's domain, then Kramer's "I'm Out" will.

2 The Soup Nazi

"This episode is epic! NEXT! "

You cannot go one solid month or year without someone saying, "No soup for you! " This is what makes this episode a classic!

I love this episode it is so funny. It is probably one of the most quotable episodes as well. "No soup for you."

I've probably seen every episode of Seinfeld and this has to be the best! When ever I think of Seinfeld, I think of ''No soup for you! '', and this is probably the most iconic episode and if you haven't seen this episode or don't like it, then you don't know true comedy! I'm a 13 year old male and I still think that Seinfeld is definitely my favorite T.V. show of all time!

3 The Bubble Boy

"I'm sorry but the correct answer is moops. "

One of the best episodes of any show ever!

What a funny episode. I thought that it was so funny when George and Susan were playing trival pursuit with the bubble boy and he was being mean to them. I can't believe that at the end of the episode Kramer burned down the cabin.

A really funny episode

4 The 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

"One never knows how the gastrointestinal workings of the equine are going to function. "
- Kramer

Best clip ever when George is in movie theatre!

If I have to choose only one Seinfeld, It would be this episode. George’s performance is exceptional.

5 The 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. "

The sea was angry that day, my friends... Like an old man trying to return soup at a deli

6 The Gum

George appears to be losing his mind because of Lloyd Braun and the Woman on the Horse. Hilarious

The most hard laughs of any Seinfeld episode for me

7 The 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 - Robmofo

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.

One of the best episodes of Seinfeld. I like how there was bathroom humor in this episode. The episode also has some of the best quotes and memorable scenes that the show has had. definitely one of my top 5 favorite episodes.

Great, great episode with such a simple idea

8 The Hamptons

"Significant shrinkage! "

"She thinks that it's not all that it could be when it's all that it could be and more! "

Kramer stealing lobsters, everyone seeing George's girlfriend topless but the best is Elaine's line " it shrinks how do you guys walk around with those things"

9 The Apology
10 The 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. "
