Favorite "Seinfeld" moment according to you...

Kramer to his intern for Kramerica:
Kramer: "You know if you told me a week ago that we'd be solving the worlds' energy crisis, I never would've believed you...
now let's drop this giant ball of oil out the window."

George to Elaine's now-going-bald boyfriend:
Boyfriend: "So how long do I have?"
George: "6, maybe 10 months."
Boyfriend: "Is there anything I can do?"
George: "Yes...live, live dammit, live every moment as if it were your last...because, in many ways, it is."

KRAMER: "If the Pigman had a car, he'd give you a ride!"

GEORGE: "How do you know? What if the Pigman had a two-seater?"

KRAMER: "Be realistic, George."

Kramer buying one of the shower heads which are used to clean elephants. Tears come out of my eyes everytime I see him turning on the shower for the first time

Season 7 can't get here fast enough

"And you want to be my Latex salesman" - Jerry overlooking Georgle lying on the floor of his apartment with his pants around his ankles having just tripped over them running from the bathroom.

"Why don't you just tell me the movie you would like to see!"
- A stunned Kramer filling in for movie phone after he realizes that he has no idea what digit the person on the other phone pressed.

two of my favorites have been mentioned : "now let's drop this giant ball of oil out the window" and Kramer's version of the Merv Griffin show. I also love when Kramer is talking about how he gave blood for money until they stuck the needle in and all that came out was a puff of air. My favorite is probably from "The Slicer":
Kramer: Elaine, alright where's the SP2000? Cause I gotta slice.

Elaine: Aah, I forgot it. I gotta get home.

Kramer: Ok, I'll go with you.

Elaine: Umm, I'm not actually going straight to home, I have to first stop at the eh...circus, you know with all the...clowns.

Kramer: Oh, well you have fun...[Elaine leaves] oh no clowns...hate clowns...the clowns.

Kramer slides down the wall as he's saying this, due to some traumatic experience with clowns

edit: Michael Corvin just reminded me of the "Why don't you just tell me..." - maybe that is my all-time favorite.

I don't remember that one. It reminds me of a line from the movie "The Jerk."

Believe it or not, George isn't at home.
Please leave a message at the beep.
I must be out or I'd pick up the phone
Where could I be?
Believe it or not, I'm not home.

For me it's pretty much anything that happened in "The Gum."

As far as I'm concerned, that's it right there!

He took "it," out?

So you were talking, you're having pleasant conversation, then all of a sudden...
Yeah.

Elaine: I don't have a fax machine.

Kramer: Maybe you have one somewhere and just don't know it.

Elaine: Maybe YOU have one somewhere and just don't know it.

Kramer: (considers this, then does a full body spasm) You just blew my mind.

It would have to be Jerry being questioned about a missing library book by Bookman. Phillip Baker Hall is brilliant.

"Sure, we're too old to change the world. What about that kid, sitting down, opening a book right now in a branch of the local library and finding pictures of pee-pees and wee-wees in The Cat in the Hat and The Five Chinese Brothers."

Elaine: "Do you want all your faxes?"

Kramer: "Yeah"

Elaine: "Eeeyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!" (mimics the annoying sound the fax makes on the phone)

Kramer on the talk show set: OK, we're shutting this down; we gotta retool.
