Like the others, I feel there are so many. It seems as though a lot of people have picked the "no masterbation" bet episode. That def. is an all time favorite of mine.
Since no one has mentioned it though, I enjoyed the episode where George is obsessed with the game "Frogger" and buys the arcade game. In the end he has to cross a busy road (pushing the arcade machine) and says, "I've been waiting my whole life for this"! Larry David is very creative at taking everyday topics and blowing them up into a great sitcom series. Definitely miss that show and still watch re-runs a lot.
Way too many to choose from - Puddy is always hilarious and Bookman is one of my favorite guest spots, and I love when George is distraught because women don't know about 'shrinkage' (Elaine's reaction "It shrinks?!" is priceless). Puddy and Elaine's airplane trip is gut-busting - but I think if I had to name one episode that kills me every time I watch it, it has to be the Merv Griffin set Kramer recovers & George's injured squirrel episode (when the vet tells George he can visit the recuperating squirrel and tells him "you have half-an-hour" and George looks at him like 'what the hell am I supposed to do with an injured squirrel for a half-an-hour?!". And when Kramer breaks for a snack and then announces "Ok, we're back").
Oh, but wait, I just recalled - my favorite has to be the bris/pig-man episode . . . brilliant.
Great, great show. There are so many favourites, but the masturbation episode really stands out. Kramer walking in the door 5 minutes after the bet was made, throwing his money on the table, telling them 'I'm out'. Genius!! Also the shower head episode......so many!!
I tend to like the latter ones better because they involved so many ridiculous plotlines that all eventually came together in some crazy way. Like where Kramer pretends to be a doctor to get a picture of Mr. Kruger because of George's airbrushing attempt gone wrong. But then says he wants to use his deli slicer to get a slice from Mr. Kruger's mole because he thinks it might be cancer. All the while the Bronz-o he has been using on his deli slicer was giving Jerry a rash that he kept blaming on Pimplepopper M.D. who was supposed to be doing the exam in the first place and backed out leaving Kramer to do it. I thought that type of stuff was brilliant.
My favorite episode however has to be The Gum. Watching Kramer go out of his way to convince Lloyd Braun he's not crazy is the funniest ever. Making Jerry wear those ridiculous glasses and then eating that 50-year-old hot dog. I laugh every time.
I'd have to say my two favorite are when Kramer has the Merv Griffin set in his house and he starts hosting a fictional talk show. The second would be George trying to help Jerry buy a car from Puddy. George nailed it on the head when he said of car dealerships, "There's no rules in here...it's like THUNDERDOME!!"
Episode 19: The Jimmy Kramer Gets Novacaine At The Dentist Kramer, is thought to be mentally challenged by one Arnold Deensfrei, who invites him to be at the head table with him and The Velvet Fog, Mr. Mel Torme
