The day after Independence Day, 1989. A new era began. The era of the Seineld Chronicles. In the first episode, Jerry and George are eating at a restaurant called Pete's Luncheonette. Monk's did not appear until episode 3. Jerry told Jerry about a button that was too high on his shirt saying "That button is in the worst possible spot." Also appearing in the famous last episode of Seinfeld. Jerry was deciding whether a girl that called him was going to go out with him when she said "I'm going to be in town and maybe we'll get together." It turned out that she was engaged. Elaine did not appear. It was almost 11 months until Seinfeld was seen again. In the second episode, Elaine made her debut. In episode 3, Jerry was robbed because Kramer left the door open to his apartment. Jerry said, "This lock only has one designed flaw. The door," He slammed the door. "Must be closed!!!"
After the first season which was only five episodes, the show had very few viewers. Seinfeld gets another shot on January 23, 1991. The show started doing a few important weeks after "Cheers." 2 years is how long it would be until Seinfeld took the 9:00 on Thursdays spot. In episode 16, they were in a chinese restaurant and George was waiting for a payphone. He used the phrase, "If anything starts here, can I count on you???
Season 3 was the first full season of Seinfeld and many people say it was the greatest. There were many famous episodes in this season. The accountant that was doing Jerry's taxes in episode 19 was going out with George. He dumped her and sent her into a nervous breakdown. She said she lost the tax papers and Jerry would have to give her the copies. H said "Who makes copies???" Then the astronaut pen in episode 20 where someone offers Jerry a pen where you can write upside down. There was episode 22 when Jerry gets tracked down by the library cop named Bookman. Kramer said "His name is actually Bookman??? That's like an ice cream man named cone!!!" In episode 23, Jerry peed in a parking garage and told the guard he could get uromiciitisis. And of course there's the famous Babu Batt episode number 24. George cheats on an IQ test. There was the tape recorder that "sounded like a penthouse letter" in episode 25. The subway in episode 30 when Elaine goes to a lesbian wedding while she's best man. There was also the naked guy on the subway. And if you saw the naked guy, you would know that he needed a bro. Keith Hernandez was episode 34. In episode 35 Jerry got off a plane and George was supposed to pick him up. They saw a limo driver holding up a sign that said O'Brien. Jerry knew he missed the plane because he saw O'Brien at the airport. They took O'Brien's limo. O'Brien turned out to be a Nazi. In my opinion, it was the best episode of Seinfeld. In the fourth season, Seinfeld finally took over the 9:00 spot on Thursdays. The Cheers series finale was the second most popular series finale. It was second to Mash. The Seinfeld season finale was the third most popular.
The fourth season starts out concluding the three episode "key saga." Kramer left for L.A. when Jerry took his spare keys away from Kramer because Kramer came to Jerry's house when he was not home. Episode 45 was the episode with the bubble boy. George was playing a game of Trivial Pursuit with the bubble boy and they got into a fight on whether the answers was the moors or the moops. Episode 48 is when Jerry starts dating the virgin, Marla, who also plays Daffney on Frazier. And episode 49 is the classic episode with the contest. A few minutes after the contest starts off, Kramer sees a naked girl across the street. He leaves the room for a few seconds, walks back in, slams $100 on the table and yells, "I'm out!!!" In episode 51, Elaine exposed her nipple on her Christmas card. Jerry is quoted by saying "Everybody's got em." In episode 58, Jerry and Kramer dropped a Junior Mint into a surgery patient. George said "people eat boxes of them every day!!" And Jerry said "yeah, but they don't put them next to vital organs in their body." Episode 61 was when the show "Jerry" finally premiered and was soon canceled.
In season five Seinfeld went from 25th in the ratings to third.
They were behind 60 minutes and the Seinfeld rival, Home
Improvement. In episode 63, Kramer starts dating someone named
Leslie. She happened to be a low talker. Jerry, not actually
hearing what she said, just kept nodding to whatever she was
saying. It turned out he had agreed to wear a puffy shirt on
"The Today Show." In episode 68, there was a non-fat yogurt
store that everybody liked. The store owners son had a problem
with cursing. Everybody found out about how the yogurt was
actually not fat-free. The kid says, "Thanks for ruining my
daddy's business you fat
In season six, Seinfeld finally reached its 100th episode. In episode 85, Jerry cashes some old checks his nana sent to him. What he didn't know was that the account had no money in it. Uncle Leo said, "Your nana's missing." In episode 89, a comedian gives Jerry an armani suit in exchange for a dinner. Jerry takes him out to dinner and the comedian only orders a soup. They had an argument about whether a soup is or is not a dinner. In episode 92, Elaine's communist boyfriend made Kramer a communist. He was telling a little kid about communism while he was pretending to be Santa. In episode 94, Jerry gave Elaine's boyfriend his Super Bowl tickets so Elaine's boyfriend decided that he had to give Jerry a label maker. Elaine realized that that was the same gift that she gave him for Christmas inventing the phrase "regifting" and "degifting." In episode 97, Jerry gets tired of people kissing him hello and when Kramer puts his picture up in the apartment lobby, Jerry gets mad and everybody else is mad at him. He couldn't even get into kramer's party. In episode 104, George hurt Bette Midler in a softball game. Jerry was gong out with the understudy and Kramer who became friends with Bette thought they were all in on it. This was also the year of the assman.
The seventh season was thought by some to be the shows last season. This was an especially controversial season for seinfeld with the soup Nazi and a few more. In episode 107, Kramer is suing a coffee company because he spilled coffee on himself. Kramer used a Chinese balm and it made the burn better. He settled for a life time supply of coffee. Jackie Chiles was pissed. "Who told you to put the balm on??? I didn't tell you to put the balm on," he said. In episode 108, Elaine's cousin Holly was going out with Jerry. She ate a lot of meat and Jerry didn't like to. He was stuffing her meat into napkins because he didn't want to eat it. Also, George couldn't stop winking because Jerry accidentally squirted grapefruit at his eye. Kramer says, "Do you know what the wink means??? It means the opposite of what you just said!!!" Episode 110 was the episode of the soup Nazi. When some people went to get soup he would yell, "No soup for you!!!" When someone stole Elaine's antique armoir, Kramer--who was friends with the Nazi--got a new one from the soup Nazi. When Elaine--who hated the soup Nazi--found the soup recipes in the armoir, she exposed his recipes and made him go out of business. Not that many great episodes that season, but the good ones were some of the best.
In episode 129, Kramer gets a job, George discovers how to date supermodels, and Elaine hangs out with three guys that are the complete opposite of Kramer, Jerry, and George. Jerry calls them from Bizarro world. In episode 130, Elaine tries to dance. However, she didn't dance to well. In a later episode, when she went to the next years party, someone asked her to tell them if she was going to dance so the chefs could be brought out of the kitchen. In episode 134, a Kenny Rogers chicken restaurant opened up in front of the apartment building. A huge neon light id shining through Kramer's window. Kramer and Jerry decide to temporarily switch apartments. Jerry suddenly became much more like Kramer and Kramer became like Jerry. Jerry got his apartment back when he found out that Kramer was eating Kenny Roger's chicken. In episode 135, Jackie Chiles made another appearance. Kramer ran a smoking lounge in his apartment and Jerry said that his face looked like an old catcher's mitt. Quoting Kramer, "Don't look at me, I'm hideous." Kramer settled with the tobacco company for his face on an ad. In episode 137, Kramer gets a cockfighting rooster and names it Little Jerry Seinfeld. When Little Jerry was up against a rooster that could kick his rooster ass, Kramer tried to save Little Jerry.
In the ninth season, which was the last, NBC offered the crew $5 million an episode. However, they turned it down. See mtv's celebrity death matches for details. They didn't want to end the series an unpopular one. If they stop making new episodes now, they figured they could leave with a standing ovation. In episode 153, Kramer thinks he is getting to much mail and goes to the post office to cancel all of his mail. He decided not to after a threatening visit by the postmaster general. In episode 154, Kramer finds the set to the Merv Griffin Show. Jerry drugs his girlfriend so he can play with the vintage toys her father owned. Kramer told on him on the Merv Griffin Show. In episode 156, that was the famous backwards episode. Jerry told Elaine a secret and she said "Don't worry, I'll keep it in the vault." Jerry replied, "No, too many people know the combination," and made a gesture like he was drinking. In episode 165, Uncle Leo is stealing books from the bookstore and Jerry wanted to scare him and ended up getting him arrested. George took an expensive book into the bathroom and had to buy it. The book was flagged so he couldn't take it back. He was going to steal another one and return it so he could get the money back. Jerry told on George before he could steal it so Uncle Leo would be off the hook. Also, Kramer and Newman had an idea for having homeless people ride rickshas. In episode 166, George had the high score on a frogger machine from a long time ago. He decided to buy the machine. In episode 167, Jerry gets a maid and when they start sleeping together he feels like he's hiring a prostitute when she's not cleaning but he's still paying her. In episode 168, which is now banned from television because they burned a Puerto Rican flag, they were stuck in traffic on Puerto Rican day. George went to see a movie twice to practice a funny line he said at a certain part of the movie. In episode 170, the series finale, Jerry would be back on the air!!! However, when they could go anywhere on a private jet, the jet malfunctions when Kramer is jumping up and down to get water out of his ears from going to the beach. They witness a fat guy being mugged. They were arrested for not helping someone who needed help. Many past guest characters appeared on this show.
Jerry Seinfeld, the creator and writer of Seinfeld. Some people think he is gay because he is neat and clean. Kramer thought he was a neo-nazi named O'Brien in one of the episodes (see above). He is also a Mets fan. A comedian in real life and on the show, king of "What's the deal with" comedy. He had sex with Elaine 25 times (or so he says). A breast man, not a leg man. Said once, "Why would I like legs??? I have legs." He is probably the most normal out of the regular four. In his apartment, his hot water is so slow to heat up you have to go shopping while waiting for it. Also, there can not be soft cheese in his refrigerator. He went to Edward R. Murrow Junior High and never really grew up.
Cosmo Kramer made his first appearance in a bathrobe when he knocked on Jerry's door in the first episode. He is probably the funniest member of the cast but I doubt he's the most normal. In the beginning of the series, Kramer had allegedly not left the building in 10 years. However, he left the building in episode 3 when Jerry's apartment was robbed. Calvin Klein thought that his ass was sublime. Kramer was unemployed virtually the entire series. Sometimes friends with Newman and yet sometimes not. Likes to be on the bottom during sex. "Let them do all the work," he said to the actor playing him in "Jerry." George once said about Kramer, "I drive them to lesbianism, and he brings them back."
George Castanza is most likely the biggest loser on Seinfeld. However, he is funny at times. He's balding, unemployed, and lives with his parents at one point but still tends to have many girlfriends throughout the series. He hurt his ankle one because he jumped over a puddle like a Mary, some kids made fun of him, and he tripped. He once said that he could be a porno writer named Buck Naked. His fiancee Susan died from licking toxic envelopes. In some episodes, he is able to lie in any situation, but usually he can't referring to when Gary Fogal had cancer. He once quit his job, realized he shouldn't have quit, so he walked back into work the next morning pretending nothing happened. When his boss fired him again, he poisoned his boss.
Elaine Benes did not show up until the second episode. Her IQ. is 145. She says she had sex with Jerry 38 times (he said 25) and she faked it everytime. She doesn't like uncircumcised penises. She thinks they have no face or personality. She once sent out a Christmas card and then realized that her nipple was showing on the card. Once she wore an Orioles cap to a Yankee game and got kicked out because she wouldn't take it off. Elaine is pretty normal, unlike George and Kramer, but Elaine just isn't funny.
