In The Bris, Jerry argued with the Mohel at the hospital after the Mohel cut Jerry's finger during the Bris.

This is at the very top as my favorite non-recurring Seinfeld character. So frenetic. Super casting, as usual. His dialogue is one over which I crack up out loud no matter how many times I see it.

When Elaine sets down her wineglass:

"Darling, do you see where that glass is? How that glass is near the edge of the table. You've got the whole table there to put the glass. Why you chose the absolute edge, so half the glass is hanging off the table.... You breath and that glass falls over. Then you've got broken glass on the
carpet, embedded in the carpet fibers, deep, deep, deep in the shag. Broken glass, bits of broken glass that you never get out. You
can't get it out with a vacuum cleaner. Even on your hands and knees with a magnifying glass, you can't get all the pieces. And then when you think you got it all and two years later, you're walking around barefoot and you step on a piece of broken glass and you kill yourself. Is that what you want? I don't think that's what you want that, is
it? Do you? (his head going into a spastic tic). HILARIOUS!

Great character:
"I could have been a kosher butcher like my brother. THe money's good. There's a union,
with benefits. And, cows have no families. You make a mistake with a cow, you move on with your life...

This was a great charater!

Mohel: "Did I find it alright? Could you send me to a more dangerous neighborhood? I'm dreading walking back to the subway, someone shouldn't crack me over the head and steal my bag, Because I'll be lying there and people will spit on me and empty my pockets. I'll be lying in the gutter like a bum, like a dog, like a mutt, like a mongrel, like an animal! God forbid anybody should help me or call an ambulance. Oh no, that's too much trouble to pick up a phone and press a few buttons. Ahh! What's the point!?"

My FAVORITE non-recurring character - bar none!

This is a BRIS! This is not a burlesque show. This is not a baggy pants farce. This is a sacred covenant between G-d and Abraham...or something...

Thank G-d The Flincher didn't hurt the baby.
