I'm boooored. So, here's an idea for a topic that's extra light and fluffy (and, hopefully, fun). I haven't found this in a search of the tv-section, so I'll presume it hasn't been done before (although I can't imagine why not).
My favorite sitcom is Seinfeld
, natch. One of its comedic strengths was its use of catchwords and phrases that captured in language the everyday irony of life or, sometimes, just skillfully euphemized
a forbidden topic ("yada yada", "sponge-worthy", "master of one's domain", etc.).
Here I'd like to engage all fans of the show to name their favorite Seinfeld line
Most of these probably shouldn't need a lot of background or exposition to them, if yours needs some, please give it in brief form. If you feel you need to include surrounding dialog, please highlight the line in question
. At the risk of stealing someone's thunder, I give an example.
| "He took it out." |
. . . . .
"How can that be?"
"Ohhhhh, it be."
This is an example that's marginal. It could've included just the line itself
, but I went ahead and included some of the subsequent dialog as well. Fans of the show won't---or shouldn't---need further explanation or details than what's here.
Please identify the episode
from which your line is drawn. To help yourself do this, I suggest searching with key word relevant to the episode at either the S.O.B. (i.e., Steven O'Brien's) Seinfeld episode guide page
or at the tvtome.com guide to Seinfeld
To start this off on the right foot, my own all-time favorite Seinfeld
line (delivered with the characteristic Seinfeld whine):
"Why would a person from a pony-country move to a NON-pony country?"
("The Pony Remark")
: Finally, please, given the (assumed) popularity of this topic, only ONE LINE per customer
. Give others a chance. If your line has been taken, you may comment on it and choose another one---ONE!
---that hasn't yet been used. If, after a couple of days, the participation in the thread hasn't gone through the roof and you have a second line you'd like to throw in, THEN and ONLY THEN
come back with it, in fairness to others.
