Trivia About Nothing! But You Can Still Win!


Could it Be 10 Years Already?

Ten years ago this week, 76 million viewers tuned in to watch Seinfeld say goodbye. (Most of them immediately started complaining about the finale.) But the show didn’t really go anywhere—as a matter of fact, I don't even bother to Tivo Seinfeld, because if I want to watch an episode, I know it will always be on.

Hardly a day goes by when you don't hear someone in my household quoting from an episode.

Who Would've Known?

So many famous actors cycled through those doors on the seinfeld set. You'd have to pay very close attention to catch them all. Even a die-hard Seinfeld fan might have a little trouble answering these trivia questions. How many actors can you identify? (Answers in the next blogpost).

Are you up for a challenge? Post your answers in your comments.

Win a prize!!!

Along with the answers, the winner will be profiled in my next blogpost. Any information you provide will also be profiled, so in addition to your answers, here's your chance to promote yourself with your blog, Twitter, FaceSpace, MyPlace, etc. :) Because GeekyMomma's blog gets SO MUCH traffic, this is a GREAT prize! SUBMIT YOUR ANSWERS IN YOUR COMMENTS BELOW. Have fun and thanks for visiting! ~Lee

  1. She was in this 1993's episode called, The Implant, and they were "real and spectacular."
  2. She auditioned for the "Show Within The Show" as Elaine in this '93 episode.
  3. She played George's girlfriend, Betsy, when he "double-dipped a chip."
  4. She is the masseuse of the title who frustrates Jerry by refusing to give him a massage. George also falls for her because, "She just dislikes me so much ... It's irresistible."
  5. She posed as Jerry's wife so they could receive a dry-cleaning discount, only to discover that they weren't ready for the demands of a fake marriage. Still, they'd alwayshave pancakes.
  6. George made a trip with Jerry to appear on The Tonight Show and he ran into this actor there. George tells him his idea for the perfect L.A. Law episode, and this actor berates him on the air.
  7. A recovering substance abuser who refuses to apologize to George as part of his Alcoholics Anonymous ninth step. This actor had refused to loan George a sweater because he said George would have stretched out the neck hole.
  8. The eccentric boss of Elaine. He often forced Elaine to do things by threatening to fire her if she didn't, such as going out with a deaf co-worker, seeing (and liking) The English Patient, and stop carrying Tic-Tacs because of the sound they made.
  9. The voice of George's boss, the rambling, hard-nosed owner of the New York Yankees.
  10. George's father. Inventor of the holiday, Fesitivus (For The Rest of Us).
There can be more than one winner. All winners will be profiled in next blogpost. Contest will end at noon on May 18, 2008.

I agree with riptide furse's answers.

Seinfield was one of those shows that was so hilarious and bizarre in its weaving of disparate coincidences and irony, but it occasionally extended into very immoral behaviors that made it awkward to watch with our pre-teens.

I still have often thought about buying the series on DVD though, just to make sure I haven't missed an episode (I am thinking I haven't).
