Jerry Seinfeld celebrates his birthday today (April 29), and we’re so happy, we feel like dancing!

 

In the vein of that iconic moment, we’d all be kidding ourselves if we said we didn’t use some sort of Seinfeld-ism on a daily basis, and be honest, so do you!  While there are countless phrases and moments that have become part of the pop culture lexicon, here are our 15 favorite Seinfeld-isms.

    Soup!  Seinfeld has changed the way we look at soup since this classic episode!

  • 'Spare a square

    You know a show is influential when you could be sitting on the toilet and think about it.

  • Man hands

    Jerry was always picky about his women, but this was easily one of our favorite “deal breakers” of his.

  • 'Master of your domain

    Really…this entire episode is a prime example of just how good the writing was.

  • 'Sponge-worthy'

    The fact that Luke from Gilmore Girls is the one trying to prove himself to be “sponge-worthy” makes this clip even better.

  • 'Yada Yada Yada'

  • Regifting

    Some of us have “regifted” pre-Seinfeld, but they helped coin the term.

  • Schmoopie

    This writer’s in-laws call each other “schmoopie.” Even though they’re just kidding around, it’s still gross.

  • 'These pretzels are making me thirsty!'

    Regardless of the type of pretzel, it’s hard not to think of this Seinfeld-ism when you’re eating them.
