61. Sam

Best-known episode: "The Summer of George"
All men seem to love a catfight, and Elaine gets into a doozy when she makes an enemy out of Sam (a glorious Molly Shannon), a colleague in the accounting department at Peterman who doesn't swing her arms when she walks. ("They just hang like salamis." "She walks like an orangutan." "It's like she's carrying invisible suitcases.") Elaine suggests Sam learn to swing her upper limbs so she's not lurching around like a caveman and Sam responds by violently swinging all of Elaine's belongings off her desk. Reer! CARYN GANZ
