Favorite Characters, Favorite Lines: S is for Seinfeld!


Let's do this! Give me an A! Give me a B!  

Bring on that S!


It's the 2016 Blogging from A to Z challenge! Lordy, I think I can see the light at the end of the alphabetical tunnel.

Have you visited some of the other participants' blogs? What are ya waiting for? Check out all the great blogs on the list.  #AtoZChallenge 

Arlee Bird (Tossing It Out) and your A-to-Zers, you are an evil taskmaster, lol. A list of great participants can be found at the A to Z Blog site.  The basic idea is to blog every day in April except Sundays (26 days), alphabetically, theme optional. Of course, I had to go with a theme: Favorite Characters, Favorite Lines

Seinfeld, oh where for art thou? I love it when you find a show you really look forward to watching, especially in the years since the invention of DVR and later - Netflix! There's a huge gap in my television and movie expertise that starts about mid-80s and ends around 2000. During that time, I never watched any of the wildly popular shows. No LA Law, 90210, Dawson's Creek, Miami Vice, The Wonder Years (I had to google these). 

But I always knew when Seinfeld was on. The show "about nothing" was a solid favorite and this is my theme, right?  There's as many wise Seinfeld quotes as there are funny ones.

S is for Seinfeld!



George:
 You've got to apologize. 
Jerry:

 Why? 
George:

 Because it’s the mature and adult thing to do. 
Jerry:

 How does that affect me?



Boy, a little too much chlorine in that gene pool.



Looking at cleavage is like looking at the sun. 
You don't stare at it. It's too risky. Ya get a sense
 of it and then you look away


Pain is knowledge rushing in to fill a gap.



George:
You're gonna over-dry your laundry. 
Jerry:

 You can't over-dry. 
George:

Why not? 
Jerry:

Same reason you can't over-wet.



It's amazing that the amount of news that happens in the 
world every day always just exactly fits the newspaper.



Not that there's anything wrong with that...

  1. WOO-HOO! I'm IN!
    What am I now, DOC, 7 For 19? I've lost track. But anyway, of course I know SEINFELD - very funny show. Not the "funniest" IMO (that would be 'FRASIER'), but certainly one of the funniest in TV history.

    Loved the quotes. And no doubt "NOT THAT THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT" absolutely HAD to be here!

    My favorite character was actually George. There are still a lot of episodes I've never seen, and my Brother told me about something in one of them which I still laugh about and quote sometimes...

    Something negative had happened to George and he made some remark in which he blamed it on God. Jerry said to him, "I thought you didn't believe in God", and George replied, "I do for the bad stuff." Ha! ONLY on 'Seinfeld'!

    1. Just for the record, I have a long list of "almost used this instead..." and Niles (Frazier) was on that list!

      I love George because he is such a smuck; this is probably the only show I like Michael Richards in, by the way (oh, wait...UHF...I forgot that one).

  2. I watched this show so many times I can still quote a ton of it. And look at how many terms and phrases it spawned - shrinkage, double dipper, not that there's anything wrong with that. And I'm still the master of my domain.

  4. Love it!! I refer to this show so much. Especially at work, with a particular person that is a "close talker". Oh and I have a shirt that my husband calls my pirate shirt. LOL

  5. This was a classic show. I loved (make that love) this show. One of the things that Seinfeld did best was the circle. Especially when it seemed like all of characters were traveling on different tangents, by the end the circle connected. They didn't realize they were about to collide until they did. Other times, getting into trouble (over nothing) was a group effort.

    1. You are so right! Don't you think that the whole deal about nothing is TOTALLY like real life, though? We spend so much energy on nothing.

  6. "How does that affect me?"
    Exactly!

  10. What a great theme for the #Challenge. LOVE these quotes though I have never really watched the show. Love this about participating in AtoZ because you find fun blogs like yours. Easy to read, uncluttered, great photo support. Well done. If you have time or interest, I have written about hotels and themes, architects, settings this April. Great job.

  11. There are so many brilliant episodes from the soup Nazi (The city i live in has a version of this) to the contest to George's fiance dying from licking too many envelopes...the list is endless. I have to go now, my favourite song is on and I have to dance like Elaine

    1. The Elaine dance is one of the best things about it, ha ha. We all know someone who things they can really "get down."

    1. Of all the shows I've quoted, this is probably the best and most well known. And totally deserved.
