The Couch, when George is too lazy to read a book (Breakfast at Tiffany's) and so goes to a stranger's house to watch the movie.....this is one of my personal favorites of the show. The Fusilli Jerry is uproarious......"'It was a million to one shot, doc, million to one." The Jimmy is another classic, with Kramer getting dental work and being mistaken for.....well, if you watch Seinfeld, you know;-)
Some other episodes:
The Chaperone- Kramer tries to help Miss Rhode Island prepare for a pageant, while at the same time Jerry is dating her. Her birds are killed in her hotel room which she was going to use for her talent act, and instead she must resort to singing, which she does not do very well(an understatement).

After she learns the woman who gave he the advice is NOT Chinese but is using a shortened name which sounds Chinese, she says 'this changes everything!' Kramer's sperm count is low and he must go from briefs to boxers but he does not want to as his "boys need a house." Many memorable lines from this one.

The face painting is embarassing to Elaine, Jerry, and offends a priest in a taxi.

The monkey then goes into a deep depression(he stops his autoerotic functioning) and the zoo blames Kramer.
The Couch- George is too lazy to read a book (Breakfast at Tiffany's) for his book club and so goes to a stranger's house to watch the movie after he peers over the counter at the video rental store to see who has the movie.....once there, we see the truly obnoxious side of George Costanza. Grape juice on the couch......I mean, can he be any more obnoxious? This is one of my personal favorites for both the season and the show.
Best quotes: "What's so great about a mom and pop store? Let me tell you something, if my mom and pop ran a store I wouldn't shop there." - George, in "The Mom and Pop Store"
"Have you ever met a proctologist? They usually have a very good sense of humor. You meet a proctologist at a party, don't walk away. Plant yourself there because you will hear the funniest stories you've ever heard. See, no one wants to admit to them that they stuck something up there. Never. It's always an accident. Every proctologist story ends in the same way... 'It was a million to one shot, doc, million to one.' " -Kramer, from The Fusilli Jerry

"If you're a T.V. Seinfeld fan you will absolutely love the DVD's. The scenes that are cut to insert commercials by syndicators are restored on the high quality DVD versions. I grew up in the United States and had always liked the series from television. I was married while living/working/studying in China in 2002 and bought the DVD's for my wife on our coming to the United States in 2005. She had never seen Seinfeld before and had never been exposed to this style of humor or the slice of American life that the series presents. We have watched the DVD's over and over again and they never fail to make us laugh and lift our spirits when we've had a bad day. We utilize the closed captioning option and it has been a great help for my wife in acquiring an understanding of casual English usage including slang, and idiom. On a more serious note, owning so many seasons and watching the episodes regularly makes you realize the sad truth that much of American life really is focused on the themes of myopic self-interest presented and ridiculed in this series. I sometimes worry that individuals may actually see the series as a validation of their lack of ethics, morals, and connection with the Creator instead of as a revelation and jabbing at today's inappropriate social dynamics; just as the Archie Bunker/All In the Family series did in the 1970's. The DVD sets include great special features from "How It Began" to "Making a Seinfeld Episode", deleted scenes, behind the scenes commentary from cast and creators, never-before-seen standup footage of Jerry, original NBC promotional ads and trailers, outtakes and bloopers, and much, much more. It's obvious that a lot of thought and work went into producing the DVD sets and I can't wait until the remaining seasons come out for sale at Amazon. After all; "Who wouldn't love Jerry?" Episodes included in this set are: Season 6 - The Chaperone, The Big Salad, The Pledge Drive, The Chinese Woman, The Couch, The Gymnast, The Mom & Pop Store, The Soup, the Secretary, The Switch, The Race, The Label Maker, The Scofflaw, The Highlights of 100 (Parts 1 & 2), The Beard, The Kiss Hello, The Doorman, The Jimmy, The Doodle, The Fusilli Jerry, The Diplomat's Club, The Face Painter, The Understudy."

"Season six marks the shows transition from hillarious to friggin hilarious. These episodes are all classics. I don't even want to list them becuase I know I'll leave some out. Take my word for it. If you are s fan of Seinfeld, buy these DVDs! The "Inside Looks" on most of the episodes are great. Each set comes with it's own full-length (well....kinda full length) documentary about some aspect of the show. Not to mention, comercial free Seinfeld is sublime. If you're not aqcuianted with the show, watch a few episodes on TBS. Who knows, you might just become a fan. For me, there is nothing like first popping in each disc to watch the episodes for the first time on DVD. As Jerry says when he sees George's handicapped bathroom, "Xanadu!""
Season Six 'Seinfeld' at Its Best
Largo Smith | Los Angeles | 11/28/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Season Six is my favorite season of Seinfeld, episode for episode. The fantastic four began to change a little this season, as they each took on a little more edge, becoming all around less 'friendsy.' Season six hit the perfect note as far as character development -- Jerry, George, Kramer and Elaine were in their sitcom prime. The following years, the last two to three seasons of Seinfeld, after co-creator Larry David departed, the characters almost became charicatures of themselves -- the show was still very good and quite funny, but I feel Season Six was the last truly great stand, episode for episode.
The scripts from this season were just brilliant. Retired stand-up comic and familiar working actor Fred Stoller joined the staff for 'Six' and penned 'The Soup' -- Seinfeld at its finest (this episode introduced a one Kenny Bana.) Stoller, a Jewish New Yorker himself, was always a favorite stand-up of mine to catch on TV in the late 1980s and was a natural staffer for Larry David's unique style of sitcom. He also storied out 'The Face Painter' with David, and Stoller himself can be seen in the crowd at the hockey game on this particular episode. Stoller (perhaps most recognizable to the sitcom crowd as Ray's whiney cousin on 'ELR') would later have a guest role as Fred Yerkes, a date of Elaine's.
I recommend Season Six as a keeper for any true Seinfeld fan
Best season next to Season 4

"Seinfeld-Season 6 would see the sitcom finally hit #1 in the Nielsen ratings. This was also the season where the storylines became more complicated as Jerry, Elaine, George, and Kramer would all be involved in one caper or another in the same episode. George's parents, Frank and Estelle Costanza, as well as Jerry's parents, Morty and Helen Seinfeld, and Newman are featured more prominently and we also see the debut of several strong role players such as Mr. Pitt, David Puddy, and Kenny Bania. Amazingly, the storylines stayed strong throughout the season as several episodes would become classics. And while Jerry was usually considered the weakest of the four main actors, his work improved a lot during this season.
Disc 1 starts the season out strong with the excellent episodes "The Big Salad" and "The Pledge Drive" as well as the hysterical classic, "The Couch." "The Chinese Woman" and "The Gymnast" are also very good episodes, both showing the continuing neuroses of the Costanzas. The sitcom always seems to have great episodes on Disc 2 and this is no exception with "The Soup", "The Switch", where we finally learn Kramer's first name, and "The Race" all being classic episodes. Disc 3 is also top notch, featuring the excellent "The Scofflaw", "The Kiss Hello", and "The Doorman", also known as "The Bro", as well as the two-part "Highlights of 100" episode. Disc 4 starts out with the classic episode "The Jimmy", which earned Michael Richards an Emmy for Best Supporting Actor, the excellent "The Fusili Jerry", and the strong season finale, "The Understudy", which mirrors the Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan fiasco, only with Bette Midler, of all people, playing the victim. As usual, the extras are just as strong as the episodes. The Running With the Egg featurette that shows how an episode of Seinfeld is created is probably the best feature thus far in the Seinfeld series. The bloopers are also very funny from this season, especially the ones from "The Fusili Jerry" episode. The deleted scenes, inside looks, exclusive stand-up material, and the Notes About Nothing are also top notch. Although not quite on the level of Season 4, which was their best season, Season 6 was another great season for Seinfeld as the writing was still top notch and the ensemble cast was running on all cylinders. Highly recommended. "
