    Sorry if this was already posted, but I didnt see it. I saw a George, Jerry and I think a Kraimer but not her. She may not have been as funny or crazy as the other 3 or 2 if you dont find Jerry either of those things, but she had her moments.

    1- In the episode where she keeps getting back together with David Putty, I think it was The Voice, and she keeps having to give Jerry money that she bet not to do so, and she does things like sneak out of the movies with Jerry to go see him..haha

    2- Her dance, in The Kicks...who could forget that with the legs and the thumbs?

    3- In that episode where shes on the airplane and she sneaks up to first class and then comes back and screams HEY to the guy next to her that was sleeping.

    4- In the episode where David Putty gets religious and she does "the devil horns" to him..haha classic.

    5- In the episode where she does the cover of J Petterman all by herself and she calls up Jerry smoking a cigar.."I say its a peach!"

    6- Where she throws george's tupee out the window, of course.

    I couldnt really narrow it down to 5 so i just put whatever lol.

    That's def one of my favorite episodes. I also just watched The Pen again and love the part when she's screaming 'Stella!'. She looks a bit likea beaver since onlyher top teeth are showing,haha. She's definitely got great parts and is a very funny character. I love how the show wouldn't be the same with just one of the four missing and that they are all important.

    One of my favorite Elaine moments is in the episode where she stops having sex to help her boyfriend on his Medical exams. I love the part when she's watching the tires spin. It's classic!

    And though it's not in episodes themselves I love some of the outtakes. It's hilarious how when she gets going she can't stop laughing and you can see Jerry or the other actors/people involved start getting annoyed and know she can't stop for awhile.

    My favorite Elaine moment would have to be her dance. Not only is her dance hilarious, the look of disgust on everyone's face when they watch her do it is even better.

    Ah, the Van Wick...another good one!

    I also love when she goes to the rabbi to discuss how depressed/annoyed she is over George's engagement. "No rabbi no joy at all, the whole thing just makes me..SICK!" haha

    I think she's the least funny of the four, but still funny.

    I actually think of the 4 of them Jerry is the least funny and the most overrated. He definetly has his moments, the one with the shower head when he goes to Kramers and has that look on his face comes to mind, but he doesnt do much over the top comedy..like I cant see Jerry doing that Van Wick scene that Elaine did, or pretty much anything George did, and Kramer did a LOT of physical comedy too. Jerry just said things once in a while or would give a look or something but thats about it. 'The Voice' is the only one that comes to mind where he had a whole funny episode and it wasnt just a random funny joke and even that got old after a while, lol. IDK thats just my opinion though.

    like I cant see Jerry doing that Van Wick scene that Elaine did - What about the one where Jerry takes the lie detector test about Melrose Place?

    Jerry might be a good comedian but he is a bad actor IMO..his performance is soo pretentious,on the other hand elaine is much more believable

    I'm not sure if Jerry is the least funny of all them but I still got a whole lot of laughs out of what he did on that show. IMO none of the 4 were weak, just some were stronger than others. Kramer and George are definitely my favorites though, both superb actors.

    I totally agree. And yes, Jerry is not that great of an actor, but he's still funny (and funnier than Elaine in my opinion).

    Hmmm..Okay...yes, I believe Jerry was a bad actor...and maybe what I should say is that Elaine is more funny with what she does, while Jerry is more funny with he says. I dont really know. I just like her more for some reason (and no not because shes a woman). And the lie detector thing was funny (i havent seen that episode in a while so it didnt come to me) but I found the VW thing funnier...I really dont know lol. I dont get the chance to watch much tv and when I do seinfeld isnt high on my list because Ive seen it so much so Ill have to compare the 2 more and get back to you lol.
