Some other awesome Seinfeld eps:
Undoubtably the greatest episode in my view (although it goes over two episodes technically)! Jerry sparksd up a friendship with ex-Mets player Keith Hernandez a sporting idol of his. Keith shows an interest in Elaine in which Jerry strangely is jealous. Also, includes the Kramer and Newman spitting montage in the JFK vein.
ELAINE: Just ask him if he wants a to get together.
JERRY: For what dinner?
ELAINE: Dinner's good.
JERRY: Don't you think that's coming on a little too strong? .. Isn't that like
a turn off?
ELAINE: Jerry, He's A GUY!
The Pony Remark:
Features Jerry's remark to Aunt Manya about his hatred for kids with ponies, gets her all upset at her dinner.
JERRY: I know, I hated those kids. In fact, I hate anyone that ever had a pony when they were growing up.
MANYA: ..I had a pony.
Shortly later she passes away and Jerry feels responsobles so mkuch so he ditches his softball team to go to her funeral. Thankfully rain puts the game on hold next week, in which Jerry plays the worst game of his life in:
ERRY: You think Manya showed up during the game and put a hex on me?
ELAINE: I never saw anyone play like that.
JERRY: But I went to the funeral.
ELAINE: Yeah, but that doesn't make up for killing her.
One of my all time favourite Seinfeld cameos by Lt Bookman. Also features George's Atomic Wedgie and the infamous "Can stand-ya" heckle on george. Here's some of the best lines from Bookman's monologue to Jerry:
"Hll, let me tell you something, funny boy. Y'know that little stamp,the one that says "New York Public Library"? Well that may not meananything to you, but that means a lot to me&.Maybe we can live withoutlibraries, people like you and me. Maybe. Sure, we're too old to changethe world, but what about that kid, sitting down, opening a book, rightnow, in a branch at the local library and finding drawings of pee-peesand wee-wees on the Cat in the Hat and the Five Chinese Brothers?Doesn't HE deserve better&.This is about thatkid's right to read a book without getting his mind warped! Or: maybe that turns you on, Seinfeld; maybe that's how y'get your kicks. You and your good-time buddies. Well I got a flash for ya, joy-boy: Party timeis over. Y'got seven days, Seinfeld"
Features the funniest "abstinence" competition, with cameos from Fraser's Jane Leeves as the "Virgin" (carrying on from the previous episeode) and JFK Jnr (although you never see "John John")
GEORGE: First she screams, "George, what are you doing?! My God!" And it looked like she was gonna faint - she started clutching the wall, trying to hang onto it.
KRMAER: (Reflecting on the story so far) Man..
GEORGE: I didn't know whether to try and keep her from falling, or zip up.
JERRY: What did you do?
GEORGE: I zipped up!
ELAINE: (Wide-eyed) So, she fell?
GEORGE: Yeah. (Noticing this makes him out to be the bad kid, he gets defensive) Well, I couldn't run over there the way I was!
