Jerry Seinfeld seems to be synonymous with, "what's the deal with airline peanuts?" yet I've only seen this once on the show, and have never heard it in any of his acts. Where did this come from, and what's the full quote?

The only thing I remember was during "the summer of George" GC wants to play Frisbee/Golf but is supposed to be helping Jerry with his relationship duties. Like the classic angel/devil set-up GC pictures playing Frolf on one side and pictures his good friend Jerry saying "What's the deal with airline peanuts". It is simply a reference to his type of humor not a specific bit as I recall.

I agree with O'Brien in that it's probably just a reference to his type of humor. He has definitely joked about airplane peanuts in his act, though (see "I'm Telling You For The Last Time").
The reference was also made in The Package Read the script of The Package Download the full epiosde video of The Package Discuss The Package , when Jerry refuses mail delivery:

George: Why did you refuse that? Everybody loves a package.
Jerry: I don't know who's it from.
George: What, you think there's a bomb in there?
Jerry: It's possible.
George: ...the ego on you.
Jerry: Why can't I be bombable?
George: Who's gonna bomb you, some airline for all your stupid airplane peanut jokes?
Jerry: You think you are bombable?
George: Hey, there's a couple of people that wouldn't mind getting me out of the way.
Jerry: ...more than a couple.

Jerry mentions airline peanuts in a stand-up he did on SNL, when he hosted it a while back. I'm not a huge Jerry stand-up fan, but that was one of the funniest stand up performances I ever heard.

I don't understand why they would pick that one quote from the show and turn it into something that big when I'm sure there are many others much more qualified. It must be what Gendison said.

Yes, also I think a line like that symbolises Jerry's "did you ever notice this, did you ever notice that..." type of humor. Taking something as unimportant as airline peanuts and making a joke about how small the bag they give you is.

He also starts a stand up routine with something about airline peanuts in The Pen Read the script of The Pen Download the full epiosde video of The Pen Discuss The Pen , when his dad and Jack are arguing at a ceremony. I think its in a few more episodes also, but I'm not sure.
