This is a tough one. I've thought about it a lot lately. Not the most used phrase like "Not that there's nothing wrong with that". I Mean the one moment that can get even a non-Seinfeld fan to crack up. Ironically, some of the best moments are Frank Constanza ("You're grounded") or Newman ("You control INFORMATION") lines. But I have to say that, in my opinion, the one funniest moment is Kramer driving by in the cab saying "Hey Jerry, look what I got...WooHoooWooHoo..." In the Cigar Store Indian.
What's yours?

I like the entire airport episode, from George getting the last Time magazine before the convict on the cover can get it and then being confronted by the convict on the plane to the part where Kramer comes flying down the luggage shoot.
"You guys ready?"

So funny!! The whole episode!!

I don't mean to be negative, Queen, and I do appreciate your enthusiasm. But that wasn't the question. There are alot of episodes that I can say "I liked the whole episode". In fact, there are at least 150 episodes that I can say that about. I was trying to start a thread about the "ONE GREATEST MOMENT". In fact, I'm pretty sure that's the name of this thread.

Okay...then I say when Kramer comes flying down the luggage shoot (during the airport episode.)

Picky, Picky.

No, don't be so sensitive. It's not a matter of being picky. We already had a "Best episode" poll, and there are many opportunities to talk about favorite episodes. I specifically asked about "The One Greatest Moment"...so don't get defensive for no reason, ok honey??? smile ok??? that's better.

It would have to be something with either George or Elaine, because they, no doubt, make Jimmy laugh the most... probably a visual moment that needs no lines. Elaine's dancing, George knocking everyone over to escape a fire, Kramer smelling Rusty's gas...etc. Those are the best in Jimmy's opinion.

Jimmy's pick would be the time George walks slowly toward the door, then suddenly takes off down the hall after telling the unemployment lady that she could call Vandelay Industries. He did it again later after he said he'd bring Keith Hernandez over. Jimmy couldn't watch that and not laugh if you paid him!

Gendison, you stole my thunder with your "WooHoo" choice -- that's the one that immediately came to mind when I saw this thread... so I'll have to go with my second choice, the Kramer-Mel Torme duet. That goofy look on Kramer's face -- side splitting stuff!

gendison, maybe all of his favorite moments are during that whole episode. you shouldnt be calling him sensitive. your the one getting mad about him making a tiny mistake. which isnt really a mistake.

Fusili, why don't you mind your own business. I'm sure SHE can stand up for herself. Second of all, I didn't get mad, i very politely said "I appreciate your enthusiasm, but....". Vegetable Lasagna just had a best episode contest. The question was favorite MOMENTS. To say "Maybe all his favorite moments are from that episode", is senseless, because SHE specifically said "I like the whole airport episode". Believe me, unless someone dirctly insults me, it takes alot more than someone not understanding a question to get me mad. It's no big deal how someone answers, but i think I re-explained the question very politely, and then responded to being called picky very politely. Shouldn't YOU be out on a ledge somewhere?

This is not an attack on Queen, or anyone else... But jimmy just doesn't understand why "clearly written" threads are always being misread, or just ignored. Inanimate objects listed in the Character's Forum, characters listed in the Episodes Forum, DVD questions posted anywhere other than the "DVD" Forum. Is it really THAT difficult to thoroughly READ something, and respond to it correctly, or at least TRY? There are many threads to ramble on back and forth with nonsense around here. But "trivia games," "best and worst" threads, etc, should remain somewhat on topic and stick with the original thread starter's questions and rules. When they're not, there's nothing wrong with correcting someone in a civil way, which Jimmy feels, Gendison did.

Now back to the "One Greatest Moment" thread already in progress... Smile

I'm new here...and this is my first post...so I hope it works...but I would say...

The episode when George arranges for Susan's parents to take Kramer's horse/buggy ride around New York...as Jerry mugs the old woman for the marble rye...and then the horse lets loose w/the gas from his dinner of Beef-a-Roni.

I cant believe that no one has said this yet. When the soup nazi kicks george or elaine out and says NO SOUP FOR YOU. I remember being in middle school when that aired (not being a seinfeld fan yet) i remember kids saying no soup for you all the time. It rubbed off on me, so i was saying no soup for you and had no idea what it meant. It just seemed funny. That was the only thing i knew about seinfeld and i had never even watched the show.

Welcome Bosco. Those are definitely great moments.

But, just for the record, I think Beef-a-roni actually exists. What Kramer got was Beef-a-reeno.

first off, this is my very first post so let me say that it is great to finally see a small community of people who devote their time to such a worthy cause!! (note the inappropriate double exclamation point). and now to answer your question.
off the top of my head, i'd say the greatest moment has to be when kramer drinks a beer with a cigarette in his mouth in "the sniffing accountant". Priceless.

Everyone else does something, we'll do nothing.

You're saying we do a show about nothing.

Yes.

I think you're on to something here.

(Only the greatest moment if the conversation actually took palce between Jerry and Larry prior to the show's beginning, though.)

Your so right Jackie.

Cousin Jeffrey reminded me of my second greatest moment. When Kramer is sitting at the bar and the waitress flips the door up hits him in the head, that will ALWAYS kill me.

How about when Kramer comes in the apartment, throws his money down on the table and proclaims, "I'm OUT!"


I think my favorite moment though is when George runs out of the bathroom yelling "VANDELAY INDUSTRIES!!! VANDELAY INDUSTRIES!!!" and then trips on his pants. Jerry walks up and says "And you want to be my latex salesman." Now that's a moment.

Speaking of Mickey, how about when the little bulldog dives onto Kramer, never fearing a good scrap, and his litte legs stick out into the air behind him? Classic!

Yes, I think that happens twice, Jackie. Once when Kramer is supposed to help Mickey with his acting skit and can't sit down, and once when Mickey is pissed off at Kramer for being responsible for Mickey losing all his friends because of the lifts.

Still speaking of Mickey, but a Kramer moment, is when Kramer says "You wanna throw? Let's throw!!!" And the pacing he does afterwards.

Kramer relating the attempted bus hijacking to george and jerry. a masterful re-telling combined with a brilliant mime.
"you kept making all the stops ?"
"well people kept ringing the bell !"
