30 Episodes For 30 Years Of ‘Seinfeld’

The show about nothing premiered 30 years ago today, and if you’re looking for a way to celebrate we’ve got you covered. One of the most quotable and well known shows of all time, Seinfeld has over 150 episodes worth watching, but we’ve narrowed it down into a few sections based on our favourite recurring tropes. Here are 30 of the most memorable Seinfeld episodes, neatly organized for all your binge-watching needs. No hugging, no learning, but lots of laughing.

You can watch Seinfeld in its entirety on Crave.


Food For Thought: Most Memorable Meals

Aside from the recognizable Monk’s Cafe, a number of episodes contained memorable moments across many food groups.

Season 2, Episode 11: The Chinese Restaurant

This episode is proof that it never hurts to make a reservation.

Season 3, Episode 7: The Cafe

“It’s like some sort of Bermuda triangle of retail, you know?”

Season 6, Episode 21: The Fusilli Jerry

“I’m Cosmo Kramer, the Assman!”

Season 7, Episode 6: The Soup Nazi

“I gotta focus. I’m shifting into soup mode.”

Season 8, Episode 8: The Chicken Roaster

A very impressive hat for George, a chicken addiction for Kramer and Newman.


Best Dressed: Iconic Fashion Moments

With the resurgence of ’90s trends still making their way into stores, looks from Seinfeld can serve as inspiration for even the most fashion-forward. Jerry’s sneakers remain timeless, Elaine’s workout wear will never go out of style, and the puffy shirt draws some resemblance to the milkmaid chic trend happening all around us. It wouldn’t be all that surprising to see your Instagram influencer of choice in the very shirt Jerry dreaded.

Season 5, Episode 2: The Puffy Shirt

See? Not as bad as we remember.

Season 5, Episode 13: The Dinner Party

George was on the puffer jacket trend before the rest of us.

Season 5, Episode 15: The Pie

Kramer’s famous lobster shirt makes an appearance in this ep.

Season 6, Episode 19: The Jimmy

Elaine flexes her work out wear and attracts a man who strictly speaks in third person.

Season 7, Episode 12: The Caddy

Elaine’s favourite person makes a statement, another Seinfeld fashion moment that’s still around today.

On The Road: Best Travel Episodes

It’s no surprise that in the city or out of it, miscommunication and absurdity in the most ordinary of situations follow Jerry, Elaine, George, and Kramer.

Season 3, Episode 13: The Subway

Do you also think about this nightmare episode every time you take the subway? No? Just us? Cool cool cool.

Season 4, Episode 12: The Airport

We are all Elaine aka we’re a little too desperate to get a taste of first class.

Season 5, Episode 21: The Hamptons

He was in the pool!

Season 6, Episode 8: The Mom & Pop Store 

“Everybody’s talkin’ at me, I can’t hear a word they’re sayin’, just drivin’ around in Jon Voight’s car.”

Season 9, Episode 8: The Betrayal

This “backwards” episode takes the New Yorkers all the way to India.


No New Friends: Worst Dates

One of the main plot points of virtually every Seinfeld episode saw at least one character going on an date, and virtually every one of those dates ending terribly. Whether it was due to Jerry’s shallowness (see: man hands, someone who doesn’t like pie and the one who liked a Dockers commercial) or it just wasn’t meant to be (see: George and Susan’s entire relationship), some of the most memorable moments of the show included the dates and partners, good or bad.

Season 5, Episode 18/19: The Raincoats

The close talker with a weird interest in Jerry’s parents? Unforgettable.

Season 6, Episode 10: The Race

Communism takes over in this episode.

Season 6, Episode 23: The Face Painter

Elaine couldn’t be more embarrassed, but there’s nothing wrong with showing a little love for your team.

Season 7, Episode 9: The Sponge 

“I think I’m very sponge-worthy”

Season 8, Episode 3: The Bizarro Jerry

This ep has both the opposite version of the friends and a very memorable date with a perfect woman who has “man hands.”

Familiar Faces: Best Recurring Characters

From family to friends to neighbours to rival comedians, Seinfeld‘s recurring characters sometimes stole the spotlight themselves. Some of our faves are Frank and Estelle Costanza, Newman, and Uncle Leo. Some honourable mentions: J. Peterman, Jackie Chiles, and George Steinbrenner.

Season 5, Episode 10: The Cigar Store Indian

Estelle and Frank Costanza are known for their explosive arguments and their…interesting relationship with son George. The TV guide scene in this ep perfect captures what it means to be a Costanza.

Season 7, Episode 24: The Invitations

You hate to see it.

Season 8, Episode 5: The Package

“Hello Newman”

Season 9, Episode 17: The Bookstore 

Uncle Leo stealing a book but getting hung up on why Jerry didn’t say “hello” to him…Leo behaviour indeed.

Season 7, Episode 14/15: The Cadillac

Jerry’s parents come a close second to George’s when it comes to being overbearing.


Best Of The Best: Series-Defining Moments

This section is up for debate, as every Seinfeld fan has their own idea of what the most quotable moment was. The only thing we can all agree on is Festivus, but the rest of the episodes listed here are strong contenders.

Season 4, Episode 7: The Bubble Boy

“He’s a bubble-boy!”

Season 4, Episode 11: The Contest 

“But… are you still Master of your domain?”

Season 8, Episode 4: The Little Kicks 

Probably how we look when we dance too, but we’re still laughing anyways.

Season 9, Episode 3: The Serenity Now
