"Adjacent to refuse is refuse."

Season 6, Episode 6, "The Gymnast"

Extremely underrated, "The Gymnast" may well be my favorite episode from Seinfed's 6th season. First and foremost it's noteworthy for Ian Abercrombie's performance as Mr. Pitt; he truly steals the show in this episode, and his final scene alone is one of the season's most laugh out loud hilarious moments.

He's not alone though. Michael Richards and Jason Alexander are at their best. In addition, Romanian actress Elina Löwensohn is terrific as Jerry's girlfriend-of-the-week, and their final conversation is fantastic, even if it makes no sense at all.
