“The Outing” (February 11, 1993)

Seinfeld won a GLAAD award for this episode all about how even the most well-meaning straight people would be horrified to be mistaken for gay. It helped popularize “not that there’s anything wrong with that” and, to a lesser extent, “single, thin and neat” as 90s-era gay catchphrases and also managed to spin a whole half-hour with minimal presence of actual LGBT characters. Emelie Burnette, copy editor to the stars, joins Glen and Drew to talk about what this episode gets right, as well as Veronica Mars’ enduring legacy, seeing Larry David in the men’s room, a rapper whose name sounds like Queef Latina, and why Elaine refuses to take off her coat.
