In the nosejob, after George's girl get's her nose fixed and leaves with Kramer, Jerry says "My nose, my nose, my kingdom for a nose." This is obviously referring to some sort famous quote. I just don't know which one. Can anyone help?

It's reference to the play "Cerano Debergerac" (and i might have totally mangled the spelling on that one). It's a play about a guy with a really big nose who writes beautiful poetry, but can't get laid. So he plays the same part Newman played in another reference to the same play. Newman feeding Kramer lines so that Kramer can impress Jerry's girlfriend "Pam" is a more dirsct reference to the play that I can't spell.

Shakespeare's "Richard III," Act V, scene iv: "A horse! A horse! My kingdom for a horse!"

Are you sure? Come to think of it, you're probably right. Why the hell would anyone say "A Kingdom for my nose". Oh well, I had it wrong all this time.
