although i find the other characters funny, i absolutely love Kramer and all of his antics... here are some of my favorite Kramer moments:

1. When Kramer scares away Fred Savage trying to give him his "treatment", after knocking over the table and chasing after Fred, he turns around and gives an extended thumbs up to everyone...

2. In "The Parking Space", in one of the most classic dialogues, Kramer and Jerry talk about "always having to know everything" and Kramer learns that Elaine and George went to a fleamarket without inviting him... When Elaine comes up to the apartment he gives her the funniest "hello", and then shimmies his way around Elaine with his back turned, to get to Jerry... i laugh so hard when i see this episode my stomach hurts

3. In "Kenny's Roasters", Kramer busts into Jerry's apartment and talks about how his rods and cones are all screwed up from the neon sign. Then he makes the bowl of cereal with tomato juice and then throws the bowl in the garbage....

4. In the screen door episode, Kramer shows off his new porch and has to manually move his wind chimes, i laugh so hard... and when Jerry is entering his place with Elaine you hear Kramer say "Y'all come back real----", just as the door slams and cuts him off.... so funny

5. the episode where Jerry decides to shave his chesthair... Kramer confronts him in the bathroom and opens his robe screaming "LOOK AT IT! LOOK AT IT!" in a high pitched voice... HILARIOUS

on a side note, does anyone know how much of Kramers acting and antics were written for him by Seinfeld and the other produer? Some of the things that Kramer does are so uniquely original, I can't imagine they told him exactly what to do. I'm thinking he likely improvised alot of his mannerisms and antics. He was ESPECIALLY good at falling and tripping over things.

I agree, those moments are all classics. He has had so many great scenes. I love in The Junior Mints Read the script of The Junior Mints Download the full epiosde video of The Junior Mints Discuss The Junior Mints when he questions the doctor over using a retractor and in The Yada Yada Read the script of The Yada Yada Download the full epiosde video of The Yada Yada Discuss The Yada Yada when he calls Jerry an anti-dentite.

I just love this dialogue part.

Kramer: They say they like what I do
Jerry: What you do? What do you do?
Kramer: T.C.B.
Jerry: TCB?
Kramer: Taking Care of Business


HILLARIOUS!!

Infact, I think everything Kramer does is so funny, he is always funny, in every episode.

And, when they team him and Newman up... Genious!

Looking at my name, I realised another great part. No speaking involved either.

Its in "The Little Jerry" episode, just when they have Kramer walking Little Jerry Seinfeld down the street... The way he walks is 'spit out your drink' funny!


I love this show!

That episode when Kramer is a working man is classic. He is in a totally different character. "You don't sell the steak, you sell the sizzle!" I am sure that is The Bizarro Jerry.

1. When Kramer drops the money on the counter in "The Contest". He has only left the room for less than a minute (50 seconds as I recall), then proceeds to warn Jerry about the naked lady across the street.

2. When George finishes the story about the whale and produces the golf ball he found lodged in the whale's blow hole. Kramer looks as it sheepishly and asks, "Is that a Titleist?" Which George verifies, then Kramer says, "A hole in one."

3. When Kramer sets up the smoking room in his apartment and his skin and teeth get all discolored. Jerry asks him about it and he implores Jerry not to look at him as he's hideous.

4. In the Kenny Rogers episode, right after Kramer comes into Jerry's he pours a bowl of cereal topping it with Tomato juice. Then, as he leaves, when the red light hits him in the face, he snaps his whole body back. Not funny to describe, but a scream when you see it.

Kramer is indeed my favorite character. However, in most cases I tend to enjoy his subtle moves better than his 'all out' ones. I could list a thousand examples, but i'll just mention a couple:

- In 'The Virgin', when Jerry introduces him to Marla. The way he says hi to her is priceless.

- In 'The Andrea Doria':
Jerry: 'So did you tell Newman about getting that mail out of my storage?'
Kramer: 'Oh yeah..... yeah, he's not gonna do it.

- In 'The Contest', the way he says 'not every day'...

i could go on...

ONE of my favorite Kramer lines (there are sooo many) is when he changes from briefs to boxers and then to nothing because he is worried about his sperm count, and when Jerry and Elaine discover this (Jerry says something like "There's nothing between him and us but a thin piece of gaberdine"). Kramer says, "I'm out there, and LOVING IT!!"

Sorry for posting twice in a row, but I also have to mention the scene in The Strongbox Read the script of The Strongbox Download the full epiosde video of The Strongbox Discuss The Strongbox where we get one of Kramers more subtle moves. (he is not as 'stupid' as pretends to be)

When Jerry and Kramer hear that their neighbors bird has died, Kramer tries to play stupid and prentend not to know anything about it, before he cracks up.

Kramer: "You know, it's a funny thing about that bird dying. I hid the key in
Fredo's food dish. Whew! That's a weird coincidence."
Jerry: "Kramer!?"
Kramer: "What?"
Jerry: "You killed Fredo!"
Kramer: "Fredo was weak and stupid. He shouldn't've eaten that key."
.....

Yeah, all those examples are great... but the BEST Kramer moment has to be when he's telling the story of riding on the bus, and some badguy hijacks it, and takes control of the bus, as he's fighting off the hijacker until.. "I threw him out at the next stop."

Jerry: "You kept making all the stops??"

Kramer: "Well, people kept ringing the bell!!"

It ends with George saying, "You're Batman!"

Can someone give a transcript? It's the BEST!!!

I love that Batman bit too where Kramer saved the pinky toe.

One bit of Kramers that I get a kick out of is in The Outing Read the script of The Outing Download the full epiosde video of The Outing Discuss The Outing . He has just read the article about George and Jerry being gay (not that there's anything wrong with that) and comes busting into Jerry's apartment and says "I thought we were friends". You probably have to see it to get a good laugh. His tone of voice is hilarious.

Here's the Batman bit:
KRAMER: What did you go up there to heckle her for?

JERRY: Because she came down to the club and heckled me! Give her a taste of her own medicine!

KRAMER: Oh, YEAH! You gave her a taste of medicine, alright.

JERRY: Well, I didn't want her to have an accident.

GEORGE: What accident?

KRAMER: Well, after he heckled Toby, she got so upset, she ran out of the building and a street sweeper ran over her foot and severed her pinky toe.

GEORGE: That's unbelievable!

KRAMER: Yeah! Then after the ambulance left, I found the toe! So I put it in a Cracker Jack box, filled it with ice, and took off for the hospital.

GEORGE: You ran?

KRAMER: No, I jumped on the bus. I told the driver, "I got a toe here, buddy - step on it."

GEORGE: Holy cow!

KRAMER: Yeah, yeah, then all of a sudden, this guy pulls out a gun. Well, I knew any delay is gonna cost her her pinky toe, so I got out of the seat and I started walking towards him. He says, "Where do you think you're going, Cracker Jack?" I said, "Well, I got a little prize for ya, buddy - " - knocked him out cold!

GEORGE: How could you do that?!

KRAMER: Then everybody is screamin,' because the driver, he's passed out from all the commotion...the bus is out of control! So, I grab him by the collar, I take him out of the seat, I get behind the wheel and now I'm drivin' the bus.

GEORGE: You're Batman.

KRAMER: Yeah. Yeah, I am Batman. Then the mugger, he comes to, and he starts chokin' me! So I'm fightin' him off with one hand and I kept drivin' the bus with the other, y'know? Then I managed to open up the door, and I kicked him out the door with my foot, you know - at the next stop.

JERRY: You kept makin' all the stops?

KRAMER: Well, people kept ringin' the bell!

GEORGE: Well, what about the toe? What happened to the toe?

KRAMER: Well! I am happy to say that the little guy is back in place at the end of the line.

GEORGE: You did all this...for a pinky toe?

KRAMER: Well, it's a valuable appendage.

Have you ever been completely below the slash?

Well I almost did once, and I blacked out. When I came to, the car was in a ditch and the tank was full. I don’t know who did it, and I never got to thank them

i Know people have been dissing the first 2 seasons but 'one' of my fav K-man moments is when Kramer goes to Ray's apartment pretending to be a police man (to reclaim the statue Read the script of the statue Download the full epiosde video of the statue Discuss the statue he stole from jerry)
here's how it goes
(Ray's home alone. There's a Brusque knock at the door)

KRAMER: Police! Open up!

RAY: Police? (Opens the door a crack - Kramer barges in like a cop. He's wearing Jerry's grandfather's suit and hat. He forces Ray against the wall - face first)

KRAMER: Freeze, mother!

RAY: Hey..

(Kramer shoves him roughly against the wall)

KRAMER: Shut up. Spread 'em. I said spread 'em! (Looks around) You're in big trouble son. Burglary, grand larceny, possession of stolen goods.. and uh, uh.. murder.

RAY: Murder?!(trying to turn; panicked)

(Kramer shoves him against the wall)

KRAMER: Shut up! Keep 'em spread! Just make love to that wall, pervert!

RAY: I think you have me confused with somebody else.

KRAMER: (Looking slightly worried) Is your name Ray?

RAY: Yeah.

KRAMER: Yeah, you're the punk I'm looking for. (all the while he's looking around for the statue. he sees it on the mantle, and puts it in his bag)

RAY: Hey, hey, are you a cop?

KRAMER: Yeah, I'm a cop. I'm a good cop. I'm a damn good cop!
Today's your lucky day, junior, 'cause I'm gonna let you off with a warning. Any more of this criminal activity, and you'll be sorry. You got me?

RAY: Got you? I don't even know what the hell you're talking about.

KRAMER: Good. Good. Let's keep it that way.
