In this series-defining episode, everyone goes to this new soup kitchen 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
Did You Know?
The Soup Nazi was based on Al Yeganah, the real-life owner of Soup Kitchen International in Manhattan, New York City. After the episode aired, Seinfeld and members of the cast and crew went to the restaurant for lunch. Yeganah yelled at them and stated that the publicity had ruined his reputation. After Seinfeld offered an apology, Yeganah yelled "No soup for you!" and ejected them from his restaurant. Any references to "Seinfeld" are forbidden in any Soup Kitchen International. See more
