this girl that i used to go out with had the "he took it out" incident happen to her during a dinner date (not with me BTW). We stayed friends after we weren't seeing each other. And one night, she called me from the cab right after she walked out on this dude. So apparently they were having dinner and it isn't going well, because the conversation is dull and this guy is kind of dumb. (He also apparently told her that he was going to cook her an italian meal and it was some store bought crap). So anyways, he just stands up at the dinner table and whips it out and says something like "once you have some of Geno you will want no other". So I ask her if she may have maybe accidentally sent a signal that may have prompted him... and in essense she and I had the same conversation Elaine and Jerry had in The Stand-in. the best part is that she had never seen seinfeld.Once I noticed what had gone down.

One time, I didn't masturbate.

One time, I waited for a table at a Chinese restaurant.

One time, I visited my parents in Florida.

Whatever I was coming here to say isn't as good as this. Well done, sir.

CSB time

I lived on the Upper West Side during the Seinfeld run and there were many real things in the neighborhood that made it to the show.

1) Everyone knows the Soup Nazi was real.  My first job in NYC was about 50 yards away from his first shop on 55th and he was called "The Soup Nazi" pretty much from the very first day he opened.  All my co-workers called him that long before Seinfeld.  I am not saying we invented it, I am saying it was his hyper-obvious name, like when people call me "Big Nose".  Everyone who met him invented it.  And yes he was a complete dick who yelled at customers constantly.

2) The Citibank on 72nd& Broadway had a customer service rep who was named "Donna Chang".  She was African American.  This has to be the source of The Chinese Woman episode.  Nice lady.

3) Best of all, my beloved P&G, where I was idiot-in-residence for several years, was used for exteriors.

I had a smelly car once (mildew from a leaky sunroof that the dealership wouldn't fix). It wasn't as funny as the Seinfeld episode though, because I paid $23k for it 2 years before, and everyone making the comparison to the Seinfeld episode got really old really fast.

I regret having missed out on this show during its run.

You farkers make it sound hilarious.

Too bad my dumb girlfriend says that she hates it, essentially meaning I'm out of luck.

It holds up pretty well, assuming you can get past the fact that cell phones would have made more than half the plots five minutes long.

I think Always Sunny is sort of the spiritual successor to Seinfeld.  They're both the story of a group of increasingly irredeemable assholes that are somehow portrayed as the protagonists.

I thought that the episode where George quits his job because his boss wouldn't let him use the bathroom was taken from and incident between Larry David and Lorne Michaels.

It's Always Sunny is my favorite show.

My moron girlfriend hates that, too.

...Come to think of it, she hates almost everything I like. It gives me precious little time to watch anything, really.

reruns, dvds, etc are EXTREMELY easy to obtain. do you spend 100% of your time with your dumb gf? does she forbid you from watching this show?

either you are dumber than your "dumb" gf, or...well, that's about it...you need help

my wife and i rarely agree on shows, and she's not the type who can watch the same episode of a show or certain movies multiple times. we have more than 1 tv + high-speed internet. solves that "problem" rather quickly

/she HAS gotten me hooked on like 15 different versions of l&o and csi, though

Its creators have described it as "Seinfeld on crack".

doczoidberg, you need to take a cue from George Costanza! Ask your girlfriend to marry you, then buy the cheapest wedding invitations you can find. Put your foot down! When she's putting them together, she'll be poisoned by the toxic adhesive on the envelopes and die, and then you can enjoy all the things you never could before!

Cellphones weren't ubiquitous like they are now, but Elaine had one in one episode where Jerry and George chided her for calling her friend from the street to check on her sick relative. "The street call is the lowest form of call there is."

Agreed. I'd also add "The League" as a child of Seinfeld.

  I think the most bizarre thing about Seinfeld is that Liz Sheridan,who played Jerrys' Mother,dated and eventually lived with James Dean for about a year...It's kinda like Waylon Jennings playing bass for Buddy Holly on the last tour...

Yes, because those situations fall under "strange and bizarre" that the headline was refering to.

Does anyone know whether or not that "Good Samaritan" law from the finale is real anywhere in the U.S.? I know it was mostly made-up for the show, just wondering if there's any semblance of it that actually exists.
