Seinfeld is arguably one of the funniest sitcoms ever, and inarguably one of the best quote-able comedies of all time.
It aired 31 years ago and went on to inspire legions of imitators and disciples. During its nine-year run, it was nominated for an impressive 11 Emmy Awards for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series (winning twice), and is full of so many memorable quotations and phrases
It also made a load of us laugh. Below, we celebrate the best Seinfeld quotes that are still popular today. So while we miss Jerry Seinfeld, George Costanza, Elaine Benes, and Cosmo Kramer, at least we can still watch reruns and ask, “Are you the master of your domain?”
