It was a show about nothing!  Nothing is good!   20 years ago tonight May 14th the final episode of Seinfeld aired on NBC.

The story of 4 friends almost didn’t make the cut its 1st year.  The 1st episode was called “The Seinfeld Chronicles” was just popular enough with the audience to continue on NBC and as the show stated to hit its stride the audience came around to laughing at the life’s of Jerry, Elaine, George and Kramer.

The final episode feature the 4 jetting to Hollywood to film pilot  for NBC  when troubles on the jet forced a landing in a small town and witnessing a carjacking without trying to help the victim.  A new law called the “Good Samaritan Law” was broken and our four had to go to court to face charges.  Where they were convicted and sentence to spend one day in jail.

Side not.   The man who was car jacked was the late stand -up comedian and actor John Pinnete.  He is one of my favorite comedians and based on the amount of feedback we get could be one of yours too.   I got to meet John about 25 years ago at the Rivera where he was performing.  Here is a routine of John Pinnete.

Back to the SHOW ABOUT NOTHING.

It amazing to think about how much the show affected our lives and speech.  Think about it – How many times have you heard “NO SOUP FOR YOU” “SERINTY NOW” OR “HAPPY FESTIVUS “?

Some of my favorite lines include_ These Pretzels are making me thirsty, That is one magic logie, He’s a regifter, Shinkage, I don’t want to be a pilot, and The dingo are your baby.

Here is 100 quotes from Seinfeld

But the phase I use the most in everyday life comes from “The Soup Nazi” No it isn’t No Soup for you, it the word Smoopie.   The term of endearment that Jerry and his girlfriend used to determine who the Smoopiest was!   My wife and I still use the term or variations to express our love and friendship with each other.  AWWWWWWWW as to quote The Church Lady ‘Isn’t that special”

So the next time I answer the phone don’t be surprised if I say ‘Vandalay Industries”.

Here is a true story that happened to me, I took my in-laws to Salt Lake to have some work on a vacuum cleaner.   I AM NOT KIDDING THE BUISNESS WAS CALLED VANDALY INDUSTRIES.    I did not have a phone with a camera in it so I don’t have the proof but my wife and I were about to lose it and my in-laws were saying what’s so funny.  Google it!

It was a great show and still one of the most popular in syndication.  Not bad for a show about nothing.
