Storyline

In this series-defining episode, everyone goes to this new soup stand because the soup is so great. Unfortunately, the owner is obsessed about his customer's ordering procedure. Jerry and his new girlfriend annoy everybody by using baby talk. George tries to do the same thing with Susan to show how annoying they are to everybody. Jerry and his girlfriend get rejected from the Soup Nazi's kitchen when they're caught kissing in line. Elaine buys an Armoire and asks Kramer to watch it. While watching it, Kramer is robbed by some gay, trash-talking street toughs who want nothing more than the Armour. She then gets rejected from the soup kitchen when she offends the "Soup Nazi". Kramer, who befriends the Soup Nazi, gets a new Armoire exactly like the one that was stolen from him. He then gives it to Elaine, who discovers the Soup Nazi's recipes inside. Jerry pleads with her not to do anything, but Elaine threatens to put the Soup Nazi out of business. Written by halo1k

One of the best sitcom episodes in TV's history
22 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Seinfeld" was one of best TV sitcom series ever produced, and "The Soup Nazi" was probably the best episode of "Seinfeld." Go out of your way to see it! Seriously! Check IMDb to see when it airs, and see it! You won't be disappointed. I've seen it half a dozen times, and each time I enjoy it more.

The Soup Nazi has become one of most memorable TV guest characters of all time. A few years after the episode first aired, we were on vacation and went to a "strip mall" sushi bar. This gruff sushi chef/owner was behind the counter making sushi and occasionally arguing/swearing at/insulting his lone waitress. A customer called and all we heard at our end was an irritated "Very busy...2-3 hours...No" A lone diner at the end of the sushi counter looked his way and asked "Excuse me, do you have uni?" No answer. The diner glanced our way as if to ask "Was my question audible? Is this guy just ignoring me?" So he asks the question again. This time the sushi chef/owner hardly looks up, continues working awhile, and then says "No, too expensive." Then he mutters under his breath "Stupid question!" From that day forward, although he never exactly said "No sushi for you! Next!", he has always been fondly remembered by us as "The Sushi Nazi."
