    I'd just like to say that this episode, "The Outing", which spurred the phrase "Not that there's anythign wrong with that" (still remembered today) contains one of my favorite lines in Seinfeld history (George's final line):

    Jerry: We're not gay! Not that there's anything wrong with that...
    George: No, of course not...
    Jerry: I mean that's fine if that's who you are...
    George: Absolutely...
    Jerry: I mean I have many gay friends...
    George: My father's gay.

    This episode, along with "The Contest" earlier this season, proves how off-the-wall Seinfeld can really be. All the characters in this episode acted (and reacted) so pefectly, from Elaine's little game on the eavesdropping reporter which would later begin the whole mess to the reaction of George's mom when she "finds out."

    Anyway, this episode is a must-see. I'll leave you with one final quote from this classic episode:

    (after finding out the reporter thinks Jerry and George are gay)
    Kramer: (comes in) Hey, C'mon! Let's go! I thought we were going to take a steam!
    George: No!
    Jerry: No steam!
    Kramer: Well I don't want to sit there naked all by myself!
