this is sort of a branching out of the previous topic, because i just thought that maybe choosing one greatest moment would just be impossible (and i'm aware of the irony of saying that it's impossible when i actually replied, so don't bother pointing it out).

so...how about we look at some of the main character's greatest individual moments...then maybe after some duo greatest moments...and so on. (unless this has already been discussed at some point before).
otherwise i say we start with Jerry.

this is a very tough one because, for the most part, jerry did play the "relative" straight man. but for me, i'd have to say that his greatest moment was in "the heart attack". George, in his melodramatic fashion, asks Jerry to end his misery by killing him, saying "just take my pillow, and put it over my face."
Jerry calmly takes the pillow and asks "what,kinda like this?"

I'd say Jerry's greatest moment would be when he got all serious for George's sake and did his rant about Birthdays (Happy Birthday??? No such thing).

I love the physical humor of "The Gum" episode where Jerry is in the movie theater with those really thick glasses that Kramer makes him wear.....and he's walking after Lloyd Braun with his arms sticking straight out. And then he gives him a $100 bill to get gum.
That's some funny stuff!!
Also, the one where Jerry shaves his chest hair and can't stop...HOWL!!!

One of my favorite Jerry's moments is in The Serenity Now, when he's sitting on the couch with George and he goes, "Sure I'm not funny anymore, but there's more to life than to make shallow, fairly obvious observations."

When he busts through his own apartment door after spending the night in the chicken supernova with the red menace and he's acting like Kramer. He even uses a giddyup.

Way yonder too difficult to select one moment. But, with respect to physical comedy, I always bust a gut watching Kramer's (Van Nostrand's and Pennypacker's)adventures with the pipe. Banging it on the door as he leaves Elaine's doctor's office is classic. Actually, any spot where he assumes the character of Van Nostrand (especially before going in to "examine" Kruger in The Slicer) is a real howl.

Here is what was in the origianl post:

So, LEMOI, have I gone astray, or not, in speaking of Kramer?

Well, we would probably have to take that up in court to get an interpretation and I don't want a court battle with J. Chiles. cousin jeffrey wanted to start with jerry and others were posting about jerry. We only had 5 jerry moments listed. If you are ready to move on to Kramer, I see nothing wrong with that but only 5 moments for Jerry is probably short changing him. Was I just malifluous ? Wink

OK, Jerry. How about his rapid fire and panicky "he's gonna put the kibosh on me" delivery to Kramer and his later, "can you imagine what he'll do if he finds out..." to Elaine.

OTOH, perhaps this thread should conclude, or not, regarding the subject of Jerry on its own volition (or momentum, if one prefers). Smile

Alright, alright. You see? This is why I hate
writing with a large group. Everybody has their own little opinions, and it
all gets homogenised, and you lose the whole edge of it. I'm going with jerk
store! Jerk store is the line! Jerk store! Yess!

Can anyone tell me the name of the episode in which Kramer's hair goes on fire? I love that scene. Thanks!

I also have a question. Why do people go out of their way to find a thread that is over 6 months old, and resurrect it with a completely unrelated post?

It's a perfectly legitimate sociological question.

excellent question, rio.

in answer to you, Rochelle, the episode you're talking about also happens to be one of my all time favorites, entitled 'the matches'. the storyline follows the life of a book of matches the gang grabbed from the Chinese Restaurant in true tarantino fashion (great spoof!). the matches are interwoven into each of the characters sub-plots for the episode. Jerry dates an attractive dental assistant with a pension for smoking Colts, and he lends her the matches to light one. she leaves the pack on a restaurant table, and the maitre-d pockets them, and then lights a cigar for Elaine on the street after she gets a promotion at Pendant! She in turn leaves them at Jerry's place (by accident), and george ends up using them to burn the end of his shoe laces to prevent them from fraying because he can't afford to buy those things that go on the end of your shoe laces (what are those things??!?!?!! they don't HAVE a NAME!!) . Finally, Kramer gets his hands on a box of cigars, uses one of the famous matches to light it, then tosses the match into the air (thinking it lands on the ground, but instead ends up in his HAIR!!!) Followed by an incredible howl, he runs out of the apartment screaming. The episode ends with Jerry having dinner in the chinese restaurant with his date, and as they leave, the camera pans into a full screen shot of the matches being forgotten on the restaurant table next to a filthy ashtray laden with two half smoke Colts. Classic writing again by Larry D., my main man.

Peace, Rochelle.

Stay outta the deep end.
