The sitcom ran for nine seasons and was the highest-rated show in the United States when the final episode aired in Seinfeld’s interest in comedy was sparked at an early age through the influence of his father, a sign maker who was also a closet comedian.

By age eight, Seinfeld was putting himself through rigorous comic training, watching television day and night to study the techniques of comedians.

Elaine Benes, Jerry Seinfeld as himself, Michael Richards as Cosmo Kramer, switch a tape in the answering machine of a girl he’s dating is funny enough.

And in later seasons, he even began to embrace that label. But throughout the show, he would nitpick the smallest and seemingly most insignificant personality traits of all of the women in his life, which oftentimes resulted in the two of them breaking up for the most ridiculous reasons. You may think to yourself, how in the world is Jodi the masseuse, Sharon from NYU, Sidra and her implants, and a long list of others not included?

We begin our countdown with Jerry breaking up with his girlfriend Sheila in the middle of a soup line. On its surface, that was pretty silly and childish, but I think he had another motivation for breaking up with Sheila beyond soup. Soup was just an excuse.

Cheryl and Ted, meanwhile, look like a perfect match—vigorous and tan and living their best L.

Larry, as ever, takes none of this well. At one point during the pilot negotiations with the network, George, convinced that he and Jerry are getting lowballed, lashes out. It was a good insidery joke, if a bit exaggerated. George, as he was in all but one famous episode , was entirely wrong. He looked less like a former ballplayer than he did a dancer, prowling behind the bar, a towel thrown jauntily over his shoulder in between polishing glasses.

Sam was charming, rakish, alluring, but, though he slept with scores of women, he never got the girl. The women on the show—Diane, Rebecca, Carla, even Lilith—each of whom he loved, in different ways, ran him in circles and left him dizzy, amused, thrilled, and happily beaten. He adored his patrons, and his bar, and transmitted that love to the audience.
