NBC's Seinfeld is considered to be one of the most popular TV shows on Reddit. It is often being discussed by Redditors for its best jokes, hilarious plots, and quotable moments. George's answering machine message, Jerry and Newman's confrontation at Kenny Rogers Roasters restaurant, and his phone conversation with a telemarketer have rightfully earned their spots among the coveted Seinfeld jokes.

Whilst Reddit is laced with plenty of such jokes, it is time to talk about the unforgettable and simply thebest of the best ones. Reddit users think theseSeinfeld jokes, in particular, are exceptional, and fans couldn't agree more.SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY
However unlucky, disgruntled, or selfish George Costanza may be, the fact is, he's good with words. He comes up with funny descriptions of unusual things he observes throughout the show. So when he sees Elaine dance for the first time in the episode "The Little Kicks" he sure has the perfect words to describe it.
Reddit user motown_missile thinks "It was like dry heaves, set to music" is the most memorable line from the show. Fans will easily recall that George was present at the J. Peterman company bash and rushed to Jerry's to describe the horrors of Elaine's dance. Even though he was genuinely embarrassed at the shindig, he still managed to find the most accurate description of the dance and that in itself is remarkable.
George is a habitual liar, and this one time, his habit helps save a dying whale's life. In "The Marine Biologist," Jerry tells a former college classmate, Diane DeConn that George works as a marine biologist. What does the man in question do? He tries his best to maintain the lie on his date with DeConn.
George gets caught in his own web of lies only when he's called upon to save a dying beached whale. Although he successfully removes a golf ball out of the whale's blowhole, Diane finds out his truth and dumps him. What unfolds next is simply known to fans as the greatest and most memorable comic scene in the entire series. George delivers a brilliant monologue about saving the dying whale. It's therefore no surprise why User Ollybringmemysword talks about the comical scene ("The sea was angry that day, my friends.") in a thread asking for unforgettableSeinfeld jokes.
Every time Jerry ran into his arch-nemesis, the words, "Hello, Newman" automatically came out of his mouth. Newman, of course, quickly replied with, "Hello, Jerry." This was always a distasteful change of words, said in the most disdainful way possible.

The fact that neither Jerry, nor Newman were happy to see each other, but always exchanged those fake greetings made the whole thing more hilarious than it already was. User HellYeahTinyRick simply thinks the greeting, "Hello, Jerry" is the most memorable joke from the show. Jerry and Newman's rivalry is heralded as televisions very best, so why shouldn't their greeting go down as an unforgettable joke, eh?
When Kramer pleads with Frank Costanza to revive the Festivus, the latter is spurred into action and screams, "A Festivus for the rest of us!" This hilarious slogan is also mentioned verbatim by Redditor sd_glokta in the unforgettable jokes category.
Frank Costanza's Festivus (or the alternative Christmas holiday) has become the subject of many hilarious Christmas-themed memes today, and therefore it should be no surprise why it's known as an unforgettableSeinfeld joke.
User SgtWicket1 thinks Jerry's hilarious monologue from "The Robbery" is the most distinctive joke from the series. They take fans on a nostalgia trip with the lines, "It is the most impenetrable lock on the market today. It has only one design flaw. The door...MUST BE CLOSED!"
Since season 1 itself, fans were clued in on Kramer's bad neighborly behavior. Jerry was once robbed of his TV and VCR as a result of Kramer not locking his door. When he returned home from a comedy gig, he was furious at Kramer and at Elaine whom he'd entrusted with the apartment security. Jerry went on a silly rant because the robbery still happened despite him taking all precautions to prevent it in the first place.
George has the worst luck in the world. When he pretends to be married at a party in "The Apartment," he suddenly meets amazing women who perfectly fit his dating criteria.

User tuesday_guy thinks George's brilliant dialogue at the end of "The Apartment" has to be an unforgettable Seinfeld joke. When George's plan backfires, he goes: "Is that right? I just threw away a life time of guilt-free s*x and floor seats for every sporting event at Madison Square Garden. So please, a little respect, for I am Costanza, Lord of the Idiots." This joke works perfectly well for the situation as the universe through subtle signs reminds George to quit lying. The warning comes early on in the series, but he never learns.
Reddit user arseniccrazy finds that George's antics in season 5's finale "The Opposite" are unforgettable. He's reached rock bottom in his life, and just when nothing seems to be working for him, he decides to do the opposite of his instincts. Shockingly this lands him a great date right in the cafe and later, his dream job with the New York Yankees.
George begins defying his instincts by walking up to this woman and goes: "I'm George. I'm unemployed and I live with my parents." This epiphany opens a lot of doors for him which leads to many memorable episodes in season 6. No wonder the Redditor loves this particular joke so much.
Elaine's iconic quote (and stall moment) is the best among the unforgettableSeinfeld jokes. To Redditor Artio69, "You can't spare one square?" joke is simply hard to forget.
Fans will easily recall the moment from "The Stall" when Elaine finds it hard to believe that the person using the toilet next to her cannot pass her a square of toilet paper. This woman, Jane (who happens to be Jerry's date) is served justice when at the end Lainey leaves her in a lurch and runs away with every single one of Monk's toilet paper rolls. Elaine's sarcastic question has since cemented an iconic place in popular culture and lives rent-free in fans' heads.
