75. Jake Jarmel

Best-known episode: "The Sniffling Accountant"
Jake Jarmel is that rare creature — an Elaine boyfriend who manages to last three episodes. (And who isn't Puddy.) He wins her heart by approaching her in the office and flirtatiously feeling the fabric of her gabardine jacket. ("He just felt your material?") However, Elaine finds it hard to forgive Jake's punctuation habits when he writes down a phone message but neglects to add an exclamation point. He adds an exclamation point to his next sentence: "I'm leaving!" They later break up again over eyeglasses and Jujyfruits. ROB SHEFFIELD
