Where would Seinfeld be without Elaine Benes? Cancelled is the answer, actually.
Famously, NBC ordered Seinfeld creators Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld to add a principal female character to the cast of the show after feeling it was too "male-centric" and thus, Elaine Benes was born.
Elaine is essentially the female Jerry and their similarities on their outlook to life is probably why they were better best friends than they ever were suitable lovers. Their dating was never meant to last and although they slept together several dozen times (the number varies depending on which of Jerry or Elaine you actually believe), they were never destined to walk down the aisle together.
Julia Louise-Dreyfuss won a Golden Globe, an Emmy and five SAG awards for her portrayal of Elaine on the show but how well can you remember every weird and wonderful moments her character got involved with. Can you remember what gift Elaine got the dentist Tim Whatley that he ended up re-gifting to Jerry, much to Elaine's shock! Or what number apartment Elaine lives in or why she was fired for voicing her disdain about a movie she didn't realise her boss admired?
If you actually know what Elaine's favourite film is, you're probably a qualified Seinfeld fan to take our quiz below!
