Seinfeld (TV)

"So don't. I get it. Companionship, needs, yada yada yada."

The phrase "yada yada yada," meaning "et cetera," first started on that popular show-about-nothing Seinfeld. Other phrases from the show that have crept into everyday usage are "They are real, and they are spectacular" and "No soup for you!" We eagerly await the day when the US officially adopts Festivus (for the rest of us!) as a holiday. I bet that might cheer up Veronica after being glib to her dad about his relationship with Rebecca James.

1.05 "You Think You Know Somebody"

"You know who you remind me of? That guy on Seinfeld, George."

Despite supposedly being a television show about nothing, Seinfeld was certainly popular. It ran on American TV from 1989 until 1998 and featured the wacky hijinks of Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer. When Keith's date tells him he reminds her of George, it isn't a very flattering comparison. With George's receding hairline and various psychological problems, including narcissism, compulsive lying, low self-esteem, and fits of anger, we don't think Keith has made a very good impression. Not that there's anything wrong with that. He's certainly the master of his domain.
