    I would use The Pitch/The Ticket. All the storylines are strong, and the Kramer/Newman court scene never fails. You may have to show the previous ep as well, to explain why Kramer has concussion. Also, general opinion seems to think all of season three is excellent, when the writing was top notch.

    I'd recommend "The Red Dot" from Season Three. In my experience, people find it hard not to laugh at that one. And it's kind of in season right now too.

    I would go with anything from Season 3- not a bad episode in the bunch.

    I think "The Contest" it was the one which made the show a hit and will win over anyone.

    One of the first episodes of Seinfeld that I got to was The Clip Show.

    Naturally, The Soup Nazi episode is always a hit. Was that even the name of it? Idk But it's a classic and a goodie. Also The Contest was on earlier, that's a hilarious one to use as well.

    The Contest is the most obvious all though not my personal favourite it is just a great episode.

    I always thought the Marine Biologist is a great Episode to show friend.

    Yeah, it is. We had to watch if for school once (dont ask) and even the people you can tell dont really watch Seinfeld were still laughing throughtout. Its funny without being like raunchy or anything like that. I love 'The Contest' but if you dont like an episode full of sexual stuff like that, you may not like it. Thats what I was saying. Not that I personally thought it was too raunchy for myself because I watch worse (see below).

    I was watching 'The Tape' earlier today and I had forgotten what a good episode it is. When George develops feelings for Elaine and theyre talkin in the car its priceless. "Theres really nothing to do...can you think of anything?" lol. Also when Kramer, Jerry and George start drooling over her at the end its hilarious!

    Depends on the friends, I would recommend "The Soup Nazi" (as suggested earlier), "The Contest" or "The Pick". These are the episodes that made Seinfeld my favorite show.
