"I don't have a square to spare... I can't spare a square."

Season 5, Episode 12, "The Stall"

What a perfect, endlessly quotable episode. One of the best of season 5 and one of the best in the series overall.

As is often the case with the best Seinfeld episodes, "The Stall" is four stories that are one, and other than the four core cast members, only two "girl/boyfriends-of-the-week" actually make an appearance. For once, George and Elaine are the big stars, and Jerry and Kramer provide the more level-headed players in the story.

"The Stall" is one of Seinfeld's most quotable episodes - almost every line in it is timeless. And Jane and Tony make for two of the most memorable and hilarious one-time characters in the show's run.
