Seinfeld is full of movie spoofs and references. Let's make a list and please be as detailed as possible.

I'll start:


The Boyfriend

Jerry's "Magic Lugee" explanation is a clear parody of Kevin Costner's "Magic Bullet" theory in "JFK". Coincidentially Wayne Kight was in both scenes.


The Bris

At the end of the episode Kramer's door closes on Elaine just like the door closes on Diane Keaton in "The Godfather". Kramer and Jerry both do Godfather impressions. "Don't ever go against the family."


The Doorman

Seinfeld scene: Kramer runs through the streets and a German tourist woman recognizes him from a previous "fake" street mugging and follows him shouting "Stop him!"

Original scene: An old Jewish woman recognizes the "White Angel" in the streets of Manhattan and runs after him in the 1976 movie "Marathon Man".

The Pick episode referenced some movie when Jerry stands in front of the elevator and yells "I am not an animal!" Jimmy can't remember the movie though... Crying or Very Sad
