Soup Nazi is a classic.

Probably the only one I ever use is the re-gifter term. I was never a Seinfeld fan. The characters were all such small, selfish people I couldn't find them amusing.

I was working as a copy ed when the show aired its final ep and were being all secrety about it. My award-winning headline was 'Seinfeld 'hush-hush' on final 'yada-yada.'

I got an extra $50 in my paycheck for that!

The most quotable show ever! I still use lots of these, especially close talker and high talker LOL.

My husband said something the other day and followed up with, "You know that's from Seinfeld?" I pointed out that, yes, I know Seinfeld...I just don't know it like everyone else, who seem to be able to quote every episode verbatim! I watch a show once or twice, then move on...I've never been one to watch the same stuff over and over again!

My rabbi has taught a Torah Tuesday class on Jewish messages from Seinfeld, as developed by a past student. I personally was always a little uncomfortable when there was Jewish content, since it often seemed to be mocked or played for laughs (like tricking a kosher girlfriend into eating lobster or making out by Schindler's List), though I did like the class.

Ah, this is perfection for 90s + Y. I still use this phrase so much.

And this isn't so much a made-up expression from the show, but I still get "Bosco! Bosco!" caught in my head sometimes. :)

It's amazing how influential this show was. We ALL use phrases from it, to this day. And everyone loved it. Pretty impressive.

Ava Quinn said...

All good ones. I quote the show pretty often. :)

The Costanzas were one of my favorite things about that show... George's parents screaming at each other :) And the episode where Kramer cooks a turkey in the shower!

The first Seinfeld episode I ever watched was the last episode. I never got on the Seinfeld bandwagon when the show was popular. Guess I'm somewhat like a Seinfeld character in that respect. A few years ago I started watching the reruns in syndication and now love the show. It's timeless comedy.
