Seinfeld Script Search:

Most underrated scene?

All the time, quoted from TV Guide or magazines, you hear about people praising scenes in "The Pen" or "The Contest". But what about all those other scenes, perhaps overlooked in the greater body of comedy?

My personal favorite underrated scenes:
1. The discussion with the drycleaner who admits to shrinking the shirt in "The Stock Tip"
2. The revelation concerning the "Pig Man"
3. "Sex in the tub? That doesn't work!"
4. Kramer's physical acting putting concrete in the washer in "The Revenge"

1.Strange Man:"What the hell are you
doing?! Get out of here!!
Kramer: "Whoaaa..that's a lot of potatoes."

2.Frank Costanza yelling first on camera then in the background at the Nail Salon.

"You've got some nerve!!"

"I've never seen people treated this way!"

i just ran by this episode recently. Very underated.

"You know, as a glasses-wearer, i take exception to that. That's like buying a wheelchair for the fun of it!"

"Yeah, i've considered that."

Kramer watching dudes take a shower..."Oh yeah, I'm watching you too, but this guy is really showing me something".

(since it is on) Jerry's break-up scene with Lisi always cracks me up.
"Well, I'm sorry I'm not Brad. I'm me!"

Gendison's post cracked me up just reading it and now remembering it.

George suspects Jerry's girlfriend has got toethumbs.

Jerry: "She doesn't have toethumbs!"
George: (taking a sip of his coffee)"Well, if she keeps horsing around with that tractor..."
Jerry: Allright!"

Short bit but very funny.

The final scene of the Marine Biologist...George's story...For my money, that's the best scene ever in Seinfeld....Hilarious...I laugh so hard I cry when I watch it.

Jerry and George's dialogue in Monk's in "The Race."

When George enters and recognizes Jerry and Jerry returns, "I'm sorry, uhh.."

And the whole "did you every notice" came back by Jerry's "Boy, you really went bald there."

"It starts with a DUNCAN!"

That whole scene is classic.

F.D.R., the part I really love in that scene is where Jerry says "well, George, you really built yourself up into something" and then George says "well, Jerry, I, uh, had a dream."

George: Hey, Jerry, remember Frogger? I used to be so into this game. Getting that frog across the street was my entire life.

Jerry: Yeah, and then you went onto... It's a good game.
