Actually, that's Jerry acting like the wolfman.
I like the at the end of The Big Salad Read the script of The Big Salad Download the full epiosde video of The Big Salad Discuss The Big Salad where Kramer is driving his buddy(who is accused of killing a dry cleaner) on the interstate in a white Ford Bronco. They are being followed by numerous police cars and Kramer is talking to the police on a car phone. It’s an obvious spoof on the OJ Simpson fiasco. The aerial footage may even be actual film from the OJ broadcast.

No, not newman doesn't act like the wolfman, he parodies winston wolf aka "the wolf" from pulp fiction, but jerry being the wolfman is also hilarious

In The Keys....when Neuman does the talk about how Kramer left for the coast..."" You wanna know what happened to Kramer? I'll tell you what happened to Kramer. He was ticked off. About the keys. Yeah, that's right - about the keys. Thought he got a bad rap....Bad Rap??, Yeah From You...Me?? You heard me.... So he packed it up and split for the coast. La-La Land. L.A."...That feels liks it's from an old movie..any ideas???

LEMOI, Kramer driving me in the white Ford Bronco, is a classic refernce, but it's a real life reference, not a movie reference...sorry, don't mean to nit-pick.

i think the all-time greatest movie reference in seinfeld - actually, all sitcoms for that matter - is the jfk spoof with keith hernandez. i couldn't stop laughing throughout that whole scene.

def. "the wolf" from pulp fiction, i started cracking up when newman was like "If I'm curt, then I apologize. But as I understand it, we have a situation here and time is of the essence." hilarious

I third the vote for "the wolf" from 'Pulp Fiction.' Loved the scene in the movie, and the parody by Newman. Very Happy

Jimmy likes:

Jerry's "I am not an animal!" from The Pick - referenced from The Elephant Man

Newman's "Ohh the Humanity!" from The Pothole - referenced from the 1937 Hindenburg disaster news reel.

I think the Newman/Wolf scene is great, but some other movie references are a bit too played-out for my taste to be really funny. Top runners in this category are the JFK/Keith Hernandez scene and the scene with Aaron and the Seinfelds at the airport (a la Schindler's List). References can be a fun addition to an episode, but in these cases they seem a bit eh dragging. Disclaimer: Seinfeld is still the best sitcom ever, period.

How about the godfather reference in "The Bris" . "Don't ever go against the family, Jerry."

The Pulp Fict. is my favorite mainly because PF is my favorite movie. Talk about diaologue. "Sewer rat may taste like pumkin pie but I will never know because I won't eat the filthy mother f*****."

totally agree with the above post, the godfather reference was hilarious but since pulp fiction is my favorite movie, "the wolf" parody was the best one

I like "I am not an animal" from the pick. That whole speech is so funny.

George: "Everytime I think I'm out they pull me back in!"

Jerry: "Don't move Kramer. I will find you!" (from Last of the Mohicans)

I also like when Newman interrogates Jerry about his broken cd player at the Post Office. It works as a parody of Basic Instinct, which also starred Wayne Knight.

At the end of The Mom And Pop Store, Jerry and Kramer on the bus is a reference to Midnight Cowboy.
