Honorable mentions:
Episodes I enjoy, but are a little too popular for me to consider them personal favorites:
The Boyfriend
The Chinese Restaurant
The Contest
The Soup Nazi
The Bizarro Jerry
The Serenity Now
The Opposite
The Marine Biologists
The Puffy Shirt
The Fuscili Jerry
The Race
The Switch
The Hamptons
The Little Kicks
Other Episodes that barely missed the cut:
The Deal
The Beard
The Kiss Hello
The Cigar Store Indian
The Airport
The Bubble Boy

And tonight's top 10 list, with my personal favorite quote from each one.
10. The Handicap Spot - "Do you have anything more...less expensive?"
9. The Pitch - "Artistic integrity? Where did you come up with that? You're not artistic and you have no integrity.
8. The Merv Griffin Show - "You drugged a woman in order to take advantage of her toys?!"
7. The Muffin Tops - "The last thing this guy's qualified to give a tour of is reality."
6. The Label Maker - "Risk, the game of world domination, being played by two guys who can barely run their own lives."
5. The Hot Tub - "This son of a bitch is ice cold."
4. The Outing - "Do you want to have sex right now?!?"
3. The Junior Mint - "Who are you to play God!? If his number is up, who are you to interfere!?"
2. The Implants - "I think you're both mentally ill."
1. The Limo - "Astroturf? You know who's responsible for that, don't you?! The
Jews! Ah, the Jews hate grass."

So I suppose season 4 is my favorite season. I need to find something to do on Friday nights.

"Episodes I enjoy, but are a little too popular for me to consider them personal favorites:"

So, even if you totally dig something, whether it's an episode of Seinfeld, or a band, or a song, or a TV show...the fact that it's popular will prohibit you form considering them a favorite??? That's peculiar...If that's the case, why are you a Seinfled fan?

What is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught.
To say the things he truly feels;
And not the words of one who kneels.
The record shows I took the blows -
And did it my way!

I'll explain myself. First of all, I have some personal issues with The Contest. It was one of the first episodes of Seinfeld that I saw. I was young, 8 or 9 I think, and obviously, I had no idea what it was about. It sort of turned me off on the show, and pushed me back a few years on really getting into it.
I never saw the big deal about The Soup Nazi. Perhaps, its because I saw the episode after it had become so embedded in pop culture, and I anticipated the "No soup for you!" from a mile away. HOWEVER, I think the subplots are pretty weak, and I found Jerry's girlfriend ungodly irritating.
And the rest, I guess I just didn't like as much as some other consumate Seinfeld fans. And since this is MY top 10 list, I did it my way.

I have to agree with Scotty on the "Soup Nazi". The episode is really only popular becuase of "No Soup for You" and it is based on a real place in NY. "The Contest" is also very popular but for a reason- the way they pulled off the show without saying what they were competing for and because it happened at a time when the sensors would never let them say it. In tv today you can do just about anything! I think he makes a good point about the soup nazi though. Its easy to pick popular episodes just based on catch phrases--but there are better episodes for better reasons!

With this thread experiencing a Terri Hatcher-like revival, I'll admit I had more grandiose visions for it. Every so often I'd introduce a subject, post my personal top 10 list, and open it for discussions, other peoples choices and the such. With TV Land starting their countdown of the 100 most memorable television moments tonight, I think its timely to reflect on our most memorable television moments. Here's mine
A few disclaimers:
1. What is a memorable event? I define it as an event one remembers distincly, and remembers the circumstances under which he witnessed it.
2. I'm from St. Louis, so it includes several unforgettable St. Louis sports moments.

10. I'll dedicate this to all the people we've lost over the years, and how I found about their deaths, particularly Jack Buck, Darryl Kile, John Ritter, and Warren Zevon.

9. Scott Rolen's HR in this Game 7 of this past year's NLCS. I had attended the previous nights dramatic game 6, won on an Edmonds HR in the 12th. I was starting to lose hope, maybe a game 7 victory over the Rocket was too much to ask. But then...BAM. Of course the season was much like Seinfeld, great season/show bad final Series/episode.

8. Ken Jennings 76 game Jeopardy! streak ending. I remember it like it was last week.

7. Finding out Maggie shot Mr. Burns. It was the summer of my seventh year. I had fallen in love with The Simpsons during their first run in syndication. It was America's burning question: Who shot Mr. Burns? I was convinced that it was Grandpa Abe, but go figure, my mom called it.

6. John Carpenter becoming the first million dollar winner on "Who wants to be a Millionaire?" It was incredible for me to watch, as I was a 12 year old kid, obsessed with the show, marveling at this guy who didn't even need any lifelines. I remember when he called his dad on the Million dollar question, I said "Why doesn't he use the 50/50 first?" Of course he didn't need it, and it was game show history.

5. Mark McGwire's 62nd homerun to break Roger Maris' single season homerun record. "Down the left field line, is it enough? GONE! There it is! 62! Touch first Mark, you are the new single season home run king.

4. Super Bowl 34. Mike Jones tackles Kevin Dyson to wrap up the most improbable season in sports history. The Rams win by a yard. "Can he get in? No he can NOT!"

TV Land/Guide named 9/11 as their number one, and its hard to argue with that. I remember quite vividly that Tuesday morning in my history class when I first heard the news. However, I would say I didn't really digest the magnitude of the day until at least the following day. For me, the most memorable part of 9/11 was the country bouncing bak and returning to American life. In my experience, three particular TV moments best demonstrated America's resolve

3. Jack Buck's speech on the field at Busch Stadium before the first baseball game back. "I don't know about you, but for me , the question has already been answered; Should we be here? Yes. Should we show others how to demonstrate our resolve? Yes, and we shall do it here this evening."

2. The Tribute to Heroes concert. Specifically, Springsteen and the E Street Band opening with My City of Ruins. "Come on rise up!"

1. David Letterman's first show after the attacks. Forgoing his usual monologue he sat at his desk and gave a heartfelt, genuinely moving statement. I still get chills from it today. And you can read that unabridged here
