Since Seinfeld ended 17 years ago, Julia Louis-Dreyfuss has become its most successful star (she’s the President of the United States for goodness sake). Similarly, Elaine Benes has become somewhat of a prototype for the perfect female sitcom lead, from her — at times — rather misanthropic view of the world, to being an outspoken and independent woman who unabashedly says what she’s thinking and quite literally dances like no one is watching. So for all of those reasons and the fact that it’s been impossible for me and my family to get together without quoting and making references to her and Seinfeld since the ’90s, I’ve gathered 20 of Elaine’s most memorable lines from the course of the show’s nine seasons.
