“Faster than a speeding bullet, Lois.”
5. And even the characters outside the main four are amazing.
J. Peterman: adventurous, well-dressed, clueless.
It would have been a bitch to live with Frank and Estelle Costanza in real life, but in the fictional world of Seinfeld, damn were they hilarious to watch.
Jackie Chiles, master of adjectives. “It’s outrageous, egregious, preposterous.”

To the crazy schemes he gets involved in…

Said when something goes horribly, horribly wrong.
