Criteria for inclusion: 300+ ratings and 2+ votes (and a captain's pick at 200)
Almost word-for-word from the script of Seinfeld, Season 6, Episode 6, as spoken by a female Romanian gymnast: "In my country, they speak of a man so virile, so potent, that to spend a night with such a man is to enter a world of such sensual delights most women dare not dream of. This man is known as the 'Academic'."
