On today's edition of "MarketFoolery," the new daily podcast from The Motley Fool, we dig into the following topics:

Pfizer (NYSE: PFE) posted better-than-expected profits, but shares fell as sales dropped. Is the drugmaker's future brighter than the past quarter?

Shares of Bridgepoint Education (NYSE: PBI) popped as much as 15% today thanks to blowout earnings. Are the results a sign of strength for the overall for-profit education industry, or merely a sign that Bridgepoint is one of the best in class?

What's stranger? That Dish Network (Nasdaq: DISH) CEO compared his business plan to an episode of Seinfeld, or that he said Netflix (Nasdaq: NFLX) has an "insurmountable lead" in the streaming business?

And if Dish Network is Seinfeld, then what television series best represents Pfizer, Bridgepoint Education, and Netflix? Our analysts weigh in.
