S01E01 – The Seinfeld Chronicles (Quotes)
Jerry: Women know what men want,men know what men want. What do we want? We want women!
Jerry: If you’ve got a t-shirt with blood stains all over it maybe laundry isn’t your biggest problem right now.
Kramer (Kessler): You got any meat?Jerry: Meat? I don’t, I don’t know, go… hunt!
Jerry: Let’s face it, a date is a job interview that lasts all night. The difference between a date and job interview is not many interviews is there a chance you’ll end up naked at the end.
George: Ho ho ho, “Had to”? “Had to come in”?Jerry: Yeah, but…George: “Had to come in” and “maybe we’ll get together”? “Had to” and “Maybe”?Jerry: Yeah!George: No…no…no, I hate to tell you this: you’re not gonna see this woman.
George: (to Jerry) I can’t believe you want to bring in an extra bed for a woman who wants to sleep with you. Why don’t you bring in an extra guy too?!
George: Listen, your stuff has to be done by know, why don’t you just see if it’s dried?Jerry: No, no, no, don’t interrupt the cycle. The machine is working, it, it knows what it’s doing, just let it finish.George: You’re gonna over dry it.Jerry: You, you can’t over dry.George: Why not?Jerry: Same as you can’t over wet. You see, once something is wet, it’s wet. Same thing with dead: like once you die you’re dead, right? Let’s say you drop dead and I shoot you: you’re not gonna die again, you’re already dead. You can’t over die, you can’t over dry.
Jerry: I swear, I have absolutely no idea what women are thinking. I don’t get it, okay? I… I… I admit, I, I’m not getting the signals. I am not getting it! Women, they’re so subtle, their little… everything they do is subtle. Men are not subtle, we are obvious. Women know what men want, men know what men want, what do we want? We want women, that’s it! It’s the only thing we know for sure, it really is. We want women. How do we get them? Oh, we don’t know ’bout that, we don’t know. The next step after that we have no idea. This is why you see men honking car-horns, yelling from construction sites. These are the best ideas we’ve had so far. The car-horn honk, is that a beauty? Have you seen men doing this? What is this? The man is in the car, the woman walks by the front of the car, he honks. E-eeehh, eehhh, eehhh! This man is out of ideas. How does it…? E-e-e-eeeehhhh! “I don’t think she likes me.” The amazing thing is, that we still get women, don’t we? Men, I mean, men are with women. You see men with women. How are men getting women, many people wonder. Let me tell you a little bit about our organization. Wherever women are, we have a man working on the situation right now. Now, he may not be our best man, okay, we have a lot of areas to cover, but someone from our staff is on the scene. That’s why, I think, men get frustrated, when we see women reading articles, like “Where to meet men?” We’re here, we are everywhere. We’re honking our horns to serve you better.
George: What, it was purple, I liked it. I don’t actually recall considering the button!Jerry: Oh you don’t recall?George: Uh no, not at this time.Jerry: Well senator I’d just like to know what you knew and when you knew it.
Clair: Trust me George, no one has any interest in seeing you on caffeine.

Jerry: What’s that one?Elaine: “Cocoon II: The Return”. I guess they didn’t like it up there…Jerry: Maybe they came back for Chinese food. Y’know Maureen Stapleton, if she gets a craving, she’s probably screaming at those aliens, “I gotta have a Lo Mein!”
Jerry: (opening bit) I think to a man, a cheque is like a note from your mother that says “I don’t have any money, but if you’ll contact these people, I’m sure they’ll stick up for me… If you just trust me this one time I don’t have any money but I have these… I wrote on these… is this of any value at all?

Jerry: This is what I like, see? You come home and your parents are in your bed!
Elaine: A wedding!? Have you lost it, man?
Jerry: Y’know I think that even if you’ve had a relationship with someone, or let’s say,especially if you’ve had a relationship with someone and you try to become friends afterwards, it’s very difficult. Isn’t this? It’s hard. Because, you know each other so well, you know all of each others tricks. It’s like two magicians, trying to entertain each other. The one goes, “Look, a rabbit”. The other goes, “So? … I believe this is your card”.”Look, why don’t we just saw each other in half and call it a night? Okay?”
Elaine: What do you think their parents think?Jerry: “So, uh, what’s your son doing now, Dr. Stevens?” “Oh, he’s a public fornicator. Yes, he’s a fine boy.”
George: Art…Core.Jerry: Art Core?George: …velay.Jerry: Corevelay?

Elaine: (claps hands) That is the single greatest packing performance I have ever seen.Jerry: I am the master packer.
Jerry: So I move into the center lane, now I get ahead of this women, who felt for some reason I guess, that she thought that I cut her off. So, she pulls up along side of me, gives me the finger. It seems like such an arbitrary, ridiculous thing to just pick a finger and you show it to the person. It’s a finger, what does it mean? Someone shows me one of their fingers and I’m supposed to feel bad. Is that the way it’s supposed to work? I mean, you could just give someone the toe, really, couldn’t you? I would feel worse if I got the toe, than if I got the finger. ‘Cause it’s not easy to give someone the toe, you’ve gotta get the shoe off, the sock off and drive, get it up and… (Jerry pretends to drive with one foot in the air, giving the toe.) “Look at that toe, buddy.” (He puts his foot down.) I mean, that’s really insulting to get the toe, isn’t it?
Jerry: You could take it? You want it?George: No, I don’t want it. I want it, if you don’t want it.Jerry: So you do want it.George: No I, I want it if you don’t want it!Jerry: You just said, you wanted it!

Jerry: Two bedrooms? Why do I need two bedrooms? I got enough trouble maintaining activity in one.
Jerry: The hot water takes a little while to come on. So, the best thing to do is to turn it on, do all your shopping, you come back and take a shower.

Jerry: I’m really running out of excuses with this guy. I need some sort of “excuse Rolodex.”
Jerry: I do not like the bank. I’ve heard the expression “Laughing all the way to the bank.” I have never seen anyone actually doing it. And those bank lines. I hate it when there’s nobody on the line at all, you know that part, you go to the bank, it’s empty and you still have to go through the little maze. “Can you get a little piece of cheese for me? I’m almost at the front. I’d like a reward for this please.”
Jerry: How can you talk to someone like that?Joel: What are you saying? What, you like turkey roll?
Jerry: Most men like working on things. Tools, objects, fixing things. This is what men enjoy doing. Have you ever noticed a guy’s out in his driveway working on something with tools, how all the other men in the neighborhood are magnetically drawn to this activity. They just come wandering out of the house like zombies. Men, it’s true, men hear a drill, it’s like a dog whistle. Just… (his head perks up) you know, they go running up to that living room curtain, “Honey, I think Jim’s working on something over there.” So they run over to the guy. Now they don’t actually help the guy. No, they just want to hang around the area where work is being done. That’s what men want to do. We want to watch the guy, we want to talk to him, we want to ask him dumb questions. You know, “What are you using, a Phillips-head?” You know, we feel involved. That’s why when they have construction sites; they have to have those wood panel fences around it, that’s just to keep the men out. They cut those little holes for us so we can see what the hell is going on. But if they don’t cut those holes, we are climbing those fences. Right over there. “What are you using the steel girders down there? Yeah, that’ll hold.”
George: Why did I tell her I like her? I have this sick compulsion to tell women how I feel.

Do you see the size of this shirt?Dry Cleaner: You got a receipt?Jerry: I can’t find the receipt.Dry Cleaner: You should get the receipt.Jerry: Look, forget about the receipt, all right? Even if I had the receipt- look at it! It’s a hand puppet. What am I gonna do with this?Dry Cleaner: Yes, but how do I know we did the shirt?Jerry: What do you think this is a little scam I have? I take this tiny shirt all over the city conning dry cleaners out of money? In fact, forget the money. I don’t even want the money. Just once, I would like to hear a dry cleaner admit that something was their fault. That’s what I want. I want an admission of guilt.Dry Cleaner: Maybe you asked for it to be washed.Jerry: No! Dry-cleaned!Dry Cleaner: Let me explain to you something, okay? With certain types of fabrics, different chemicals can react, causing –Jerry: You shrunk it! You know you shrunk it! Just tell me that you shrunk it!Dry Cleaner: (looks around making sure not too many people are listening) I shrunk it.

They’ve got it. It’s all set up for you to wait. And you sit there, you know, and you’ve got your little magazine. You pretend you’re reading it, but you’re really looking at the other people. You know, you’re thinking about them. Things like, “I wonder what he’s got. As soon as she goes, I’m getting her magazine.” And then, they finally call you and it’s a very exciting moment. They finally call you, and you stand up and you kinda look around at the other people in the room. “Well, I guess I’ve been chosen. I’ll see you all later.” You know, so you think you’re going to see the doctor, but you’re not, are you? No. You’re going into the next waiting room

George: I think I swallowed a fly! I swallowed a fly! What do I do? What can happen?

George: I just don’t see what purpose is it going to serve your going? I mean, you think dead people care who’s at the funeral? They don’t even know they’re having a funeral. It’s not like she’s hanging out in the back going, “I can’t believe Jerry didn’t show up”.Elaine: Maybe she’s there in spirit. How about that?George: If you’re a spirit, and you can travel to other dimensions and galaxies, and find out the mysteries of the universe, you think she’s going to want to hang around Drexler’s funeral home on Ocean Parkway?

You mess up, somebody just walks on the set, and stops the whole shot. You know what I mean? Think of the things you wish you could take back. You’re out somewhere with people, ‘Gee, you look pregnant… are ya?’ ‘Cut, cut, cut, cut, cut, that’s not gonna work at all. Walk out the door, and come back in. Let’s take this whole scene again. People, think about what you’re saying!’
Kramer: Well, occasionally I like to help the humans.
Jerry: Well, I painted my apartment again. I’ve been living in this apartment for years and years, and every time I paint it, it kinda gets me down. I look around, and I think, well, it’s a little bit smaller now. You know, I realize it’s just the thickness of the paint, but I’m aware of it. It just coming in and coming in. Every time I paint it, it’s closer and closer. I don’t even know where the wall outlets are anymore. I just look for like a lump with two slots in it. Kinda looks like a pig is trying to push his way through from the other side. That’s where I plug in. My idea of the perfect living room would be the bridge on the Starship Enterprise. You know what I mean? Big chair, nice screen, remote control… That’s why Star Trek really was the ultimate male fantasy. Just hurtling through space in your living room, watching TV. That’s why all the aliens were always dropping in, because Kirk was the only one that had the big screen. They came over Friday nights, Klingon boxing, gotta be there.
Jerry: People don’t turn down money! It’s what separates us from the animals.
George: I lie every second of the day. My whole life is a sham.
Jerry: (to Kramer) You’re not normal. I love you, but you’re a pod.

Jerry: She’s right in my building! Right above me! Every time I come in the building, I’m gonna have to sneak around like a cat burglar.George: You’re doomed. You’re gonna have to have all your sex at women’s apartments. It’ll be like a permanent road trip. Forget about the home bed advantage.Jerry: But I need the home bed advantage!George: Of course, we all do.
Kramer: I feel like I’ve had two lives. My pre-mousse, and now I begin my post-mousse.
Jerry: You have no idea what an idiot is. Elaine just gave me a chance to get out and I didn’t take it. This (pointing to himself) is an idiot.George: Is that right? I just threw away a lifetime of guilt-free sex, and floor seats for every sporting event in Madison Square Garden. So please, a little respect, for I am Costanza, Lord of the Idiots.Roxanne: (Yelling out the window) You’re all winners!George: But suddenly, a new contender has emerged.
George: I don’t think anyone’s turned down an apartment because of a weak shower spray.Jerry: If they were fanatic about showers, they might.George: For that rent, she’d take a bath in the toilet tank if she had to.
George: I’d like to have a kid … ‘course you have to have a date first.
Jerry: (about the marathon) Ah, what’s to see? A woman from Norway, a guy from Kenya and 20,000 losers.
Jerry: Come in (the coffee shop) for two minutes and sit with me.George: I was just in there. It’s embarrassing.Jerry: Oh, who’s gonna know?George: They saw me walk out.
Harold: It’s a good thing her rent was overdue. She’d be rotting up there for a month.Jerry: She died? Mrs. Hudwalker died?Harold: Ninety-four years old. I found her yesterday. She didn’t have a wig on… It was horrifying.
Harold: (to Manny) I told you I don’t like these sponges – they’re too small! I want a big sponge! You can’t pick up anything with these! There’s no absorption!
Kramer: Tell me the truth: have you ever seen a better looking guy?Jerry: Looks are so subjective.
Roxanne: The marathon is great, isn’t it?Jerry: Yes, particularly if you’re not in it.

George: (to Jerry about Ray) Remember, don’t take any crap.
George: When I was ten years old, my parents had this very same statue on the mantle of our apartment. Exactly, and, one day, I grabbed it, and I was using it as a microphone. I was singing, “MacArthur Park”, and I got to the part about, “I’ll never have that recipe again,” and it slipped out of my hand and it broke. My parents looked at me like I smashed the Ten Commandments. To this day, they bring it up. It was the single most damaging experience in my life, aside from seeing my father naked.

Jerry: Well, perhaps we can take comfort in the knowledge that in the next world, Ray will be the recipient of a much larger and more harsh brand of justice.George: Yeah, he’ll have my parents.
Kramer: (shouting) And today’s your lucky day, junior. Because I’m gonna let you off with just a warning! Any more of this criminal activity and you’ll be sorry! You got me?Ray: Got you? I don’t know what the hell you’re talking about!Kramer: (slightly nervous) Good, good. Let’s, uh, keep it that way.
George: There’s just no justice. This experience has changed me! It’s made me more cynical, more bitter, more jaded!Jerry: Really?George: Sure, why not…
Jerry: (to Rava) So, where’s this boyfriend of yours? I can’t wait much longer. I’ve got a flight.Elaine: Oh, probably caught in traffic.Rava: Or maybe he’s dead.Jerry: So what do you write, children’s books?
Ray: Greetings, greetings and salutations! I beg your forgiveness, my tardiness was unavoidable. And you must be Jerry, Lord of the manor. My Liege, a pleasure to serve you. Your palace shall sparkle like the stars in the heaven upon your safe arrival, Sire.

Someone even told me once they thought I’d be a good talk show host.Jerry: Really?George: Yeah. A couple of people. I don’t get that, though. Where do you start?Jerry: Well, that’s where it gets tricky.George: You can’t just walk into a building and say “I wanna be a talk show host”.Jerry: I wouldn’t think so.George: It’s all politics.Jerry: All right, okay. Sports, movies, talk show host. What else?George: This could have been a huge mistake.Jerry: Well, it doesn’t sound like you completely thought this through.

Elaine: You ever notice how happy people are when they finally get a table? They feel so special because they’ve been chosen. It’s enough to make you SICK!!Jerry: Boy. You are REALLY hungry.

At Queens Boulevard, I took the shoulder. At Jewel Avenue, I used the median. I had it. I was there. And then, I hit the Van Wyck. They say no one’s ever beaten the Van Wyck, but gentlemen, I tell you this… I came as close as anyone ever has. And if it hadn’t been for that five-car pile-up on Rockaway Boulevard, that numbskull would be on a plane for Seattle right now instead of looking for a parking space downstairs.
Jerry: Are you still using that same old alarm clock?Elaine: Oh no no, I bought a new one today. It’s got everything! You oversleep more than ten minutes, a hand comes out and slaps you in the face.
Jerry: They’ll probably kill his family over this.
Eddie: Watch where you’re going.Antonio: Hey! Why don’t you watch where you’re going, okay?

Kramer: Cats run away all the time. You know, my aunt, she had a cat. Ran away. Showed up three years later. You never know. They’ve got things in their brains where they remember where they’re from. Unless, of course, somebody else starts feeding him. See, that’s what you’ve gotta worry about.
Jerry: Look I feel sorry for him too, but he’ll get another job. I mean let’s face it, it’s not a profession in which you embellish your resume and undergo a series of gruelling interviews.

S03E04 – The Dog (Quotes)
Jerry: (doing stand-up) I had a parakeet when I was a kid, that was the only pet that I really enjoyed. We used to let him out of his cage, and he would fly around and my mother had built, one entire wall of our living room was mirrored. She felt this gives you a feeling of space. Have you ever heard this interior design principle that a mirror makes it seem like you have an entire other room? What kind of a jerk walks up to a mirror and goes, “Hey look, there’s a whole other room in there. There’s a guy in there looks just like me.” But the parakeet will fall for this, you’ll let him out of his cage, he flies around the room, BANG! With his little head, he would just go ‘click’ Ohh! And I’d always think, even if he thinks the mirror is another room, why doesn’t he at least try to avoid hitting the other parakeet?

Kramer: (to Ellen) I must’ve been out of my mind! Look at you. Why don’t you do something with your life? You sit around here all day. You contribute nothing to society. You’re just taking up space. How could I be with someone like you? I wouldn’t respect myself.
Jerry: One more day Farfle and you are pound bound!
Jerry: What’d we say that was so bad?Elaine: I believe I referred to her personality as a potential science exhibit.Jerry: I said I was surprised no one killed her yet.

There I was on the steps of the 42nd St. library ,a grown man, getting a wedgie.Elaine: At least it wasn’t atomic.George: It was.George: Listen, just because I got the guy fired doesn’t mean I turned him into a bum – does it?

George: Unbelievable. I’m never gonna get outta here. Guy goes to pee, he never comes back. It’s like a science-fiction story.

Jerry: Why do I always have the feeling everyone’s doing something better than me on Saturday afternoon?Elaine: This is what people do.Jerry: No they don’t.

Gina: Come, you walk me to a cab.Jerry: Well, uh, I uh, I don’t want you to get upset or anything but uh, with Martin and all, well maybe it’s not such a good idea for us to be seen together in the building, because, you know, he had a lot of friends here.Gina: You’re still afraid. You are not a man.Jerry: Well then what are all those ties and sport jackets doing in my closet?
Gina: I do not like your toothbrush. There are no bristles.Jerry: You can say what you want about me but I’ll be damned if I’m going to stand here while you insult my toothbrush.
Jerry: The thing I don’t understand about the suicide person is the people who try and commit suicide for some reason they don’t die and that’s it. They stop trying. Why? Why don’t they just keep trying? What has changed? Is their life any better now? No. In fact it’s worse because now they’ve found out one more thing you stink at. Okay, that’s why these people don’t succeed in life to begin with. Because they give up too easy. I saw, pills don’t work, try a rope. Car won’t start in the garage, get a tune up. You know what I mean? There’s nothing more rewarding than reaching a goal you have set for yourself.
Kramer: The carpet sweeper is the biggest scam perpetrated on the American public since one-hour martinizing.

Jerry: That’s what death is, really: it’s the last big move. The hearse is like the van, the pallbearers are your close friends, the only ones you can ask to help you in a move like this, and the casket is that one perfect box you’ve been looking for your entire life.

Kramer: (giving a lecture) My personal acting technique is working with color. Imagining, then finding the emotional vibrational mood connected to the color.

No salsa?”George: You know, it must be impossible for a Spanish person to order seltzer and not get salsa. “I wanted seltzer, not salsa!”Jerry: “Don’t you know the difference between seltzer and salsa?! You have the seltzer after the salsa!”
Newman: I want my helmet back! You give me back my helmet, and you’re gonna pay for that ticket!Kramer: Oh, yeah, yeah. You better think again, Mojambo.

Newman: (to Kramer) You gave me a defective detector! Jerry?Jerry: Buyer beware.
Jerry: (to George) I don’t even want to talk about it anymore. What were you thinking? What was going on in your mind? Artistic integrity. Where, where did you come up with that? You’re not artistic and you have no integrity. You know, you really need some help, and a regular psychiatrist couldn’t even help you. You need to go to, like, Vienna or something. You know what I mean? You need to get involved at the University level, like where Freud studied, and have all those people looking at you and checking up on you. That’s the kind of help you need. Not the once a week for eighty bucks, no. You need a team, a team of psychiatrists working around the clock, thinking about you, having conferences, observing you, like the way they did with the Elephant Man. That’s what I’m talkin about, ’cause that’s the only way you’re gonna get better.

Newman: Yes, I admit I was speeding, but it was to save a man’s life. A close friend. An innocent person who wanted nothing more out of life than to love, to be loved, and to be a banker.
Kramer: Yo-Yo Ma!
Newman: (telling the suicide banker story) I wanted to see how he was doing. Well, Your Honor, he was barely audible, but I-I distinctly recall him saying-Kramer: (involuntarily) Hey, Yo-Yo Ma.
George: The story is the foundation of all entertainment. You must have a good story otherwise it’s just masturbation.
Newman: Would you please tell the court, in your own words, what happened on the afternoon of September 10th.Kramer: What do you mean in my own words? Who’s words are they gonna be?
(Kramer answers Jerry’s phone and begins speaking Italian)Jerry: What are you doing? What’s wrong with you, what are you doing? Give me that phone. Go to your apartment and lie down, I’ll make an appointment for a doctor today.(Kramer mutters and leaves)Jerry: Hello? Oh, hi, I’m sorry. No, that’s my next door neighbor, he’s not quite himself, he got kicked in the head.
(Jerry and George are inside the coffee shop, hiding from Joe Davola)Jerry: Is he out there? Do you see him?George: I’m not sure.Jerry: Well, either you see him or you don’t.George: All right, I don’t.
Newman: (outside Kramer’s door) Come on, are you ready? Let’s go.Kramer: (opens the door, still has shaving cream on his face) For what?Newman: What’s the matter with you? I just spoke to you fifteen minutes ago.Kramer: About what?Newman: The courthouse, you gotta go with me too the court house, I’m contesting a ticket today.Kramer: I can’t, I’m going to the doctor’s later.Newman: You gotta go with me, you-you’re my alibi, you have to take the stand.Kramer: Well, I can’t!Newman: Well, let me remind you of something. You wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for me and my helmet. I saved your life! You would be dead! Dead! You would cease to exist! You would be gone for the rest of eternity! YOU WOULDN’T EVEN BEGIN TO COMPREHEND WHAT THAT MEANS!Kramer: Shut up! I’ll get my coat.
Jerry: (to George) You know, you really need some help. But a regular psychiatrist couldn’t even help you. You need to go to like, Vienna, or something. You know what I mean? You need to get involved at the university level. Like where Freud studied, and have all those people looking at you and checking up on you. That’s the kind of help you need. Not the once a week for eighty bucks. No, you need a team. A team of psychiatrists working round the clock, thinking about you, having conferences, observing you. Like the way they did with the Elephant Man.
Jerry: You know, a muffin can be very filling!

You know what I paid for these Jerry?Helen: So why did you say anything?Jerry: It was a mistake.Morty: They’re good around the house and they’re good for outside!
Elaine: (referring to Dr. Reston) He’s like a Svenjolly.Jerry: Svengali.Elaine: What did I say?Jerry: Svenjolly.Elaine: Svenjolly? I did not say Svenjolly.Jerry: George?George: Svenjolly. (licking some peanut butter off his finger)Elaine: I don’t see how I could’ve said Svenjolly.Jerry: Well, maybe he’s got, like, a cheerful mental hold on you.
Jerry: Let me explain to you what you just did. There are literally hundreds of people trying to get pilot deals with them this year. They go with maybe five. Okay, if we pass, that’s it. They go to the next show.George: Ooooo, I’m scared…Ohooo, they’re not gonna do the show.Jerry: We’re lucky they’re even interested in the show in the first place. We got a show about nothing. With no story. What do you think, they’re up there going, “Hey, maybe we should give those two guys, who have no experience and no ideas, more money”?George: Ohooo, what are we gonna do? I’m shaking. I’m shaking.
Jerry: What are you repeating everything I say?George: What are you repeating everything I say?Jerry: Well George is an idiot.George: Well G…
Dr Reston: Elaine, do you remember your dream where you had a sexual encounter with a Chinese woman?
Helen: How could anyone not like you?
Morty: (reading the form) ‘Have you ever had a sexually transmitted disease?’
Uncle Leo: I just talked to Dr. Dembrow’s son. He said they almost had to call the police.Morty: What are you talking about? I’m the one who should’ve called the police. They stole my wallet.Uncle Leo: You know how hard it was for me to get that appointment for you? You can’t just walk in on this guy. He did me a personal favor.Morty: All right, Leo.Uncle Leo: And you walked out without paying.Morty: How was I supposed to pay? I didn’t have my wallet.Uncle Leo: Well, I hope you send him a check.Morty: What for?Uncle Leo: What for? This man was nice enough to see you. He did me a personal favor.Morty: That’s the second time you said “personal favor.” Why do you keep saying that?Uncle Leo: I said it once.Morty: Twice! And Dembrow doesn’t even know you. His son happens to live on your floor.
Jerry: (monologue) Don’t you hate “to be continued” on TV? It’s horrible when you sense the “to be continued” coming. You know, you’re watching the show… You’re into the story. There’s like five minutes left and suddenly you realize, “Hey, they can’t make it! Timmy’s still stuck in the cave! There’s no way they’re gonna wrap this up in five minutes!” I mean, the whole reason you watch a TV show is because it ends. If I want a long, boring story with no point to it, I have my life. A comedian can’t do that, see. I can’t go, “A man walks into a bar with a pig under his arm – Can you come back next week?”
S04E06 – The Watch (Quotes)
Kramer: Have we been intimate?Elaine: Yeah, yeah we’ve been intimate.Kramer: And how often do we do it?Elaine: Kramer! How is that important?

Okay?Kramer: Ooooh baby!
Jerry: (on paperweights) Where are these people working that papers are blowing right off of desks? Are the desks screwed to the back of a flatbed truck going down the highway? Are they typing in the crow’s-nest of a clipper ship? What do you need a paperweight for?
Jerry: (to George) Let me see if I understand this – in other words, you held out for LESS money?!
Doorman: There is a George Bonanza to see you.George: Costanza, Costanza.Doorman: George Costanza.

Kramer: Do you have a decaf cappuccino? Dr. Reston: I don’t think we have that. Kramer: Well, that’s a little strange. Dr. Reston: Why does that surprise you? Kramer: Well, it’s a very popular drink. Dr. Reston: This is an office. Kramer: That’s true.

Jerry: He’s a bubble boy.George: A bubble boy?Jerry: Yes, a bubble boy.Susan: What’s a bubble boy?Jerry: He lives in a bubble.George: Boy.
(George is driving too fast as Jerry is following him)Jerry: What’s he doing? What is his hurry?Elaine: Well, you know George. It’s not good enough to get there. You gotta make good timing.Jerry: I know he once went from West 81st Street to Kennedy Airport in 25 minutes. I never heard the end of it.(Elaine laughs quietly)Jerry: Look at him.
Susan: So what kind of a bubble, like an igloo?Jerry: No, that’s what I thought. But apparently it’s just a big piece of plastic, dividing the room.George: What kind of plastic do you think it is? Like that dry cleaning plastic?Jerry: That’s no good. He wouldn’t last 10 minutes in there!

Bubble Boy: What’s your story?Susan: I-I-I have no story.George: She works for NBC.Bubble Boy: How ’bout takin your top off.Mrs. Sanger: Donald, behave yourself.
Jerry: I can’t date a girl with that kind of laugh…it’s like CoCo Chanel goin’ out with a Fishmonger!
Kramer: My Cubans!(He runs off to the burning cabin)
(Jerry has lost track of George’s car)Jerry: What is he doing? Is he out of his mind? Do you see him? I don’t even think I see him anymore. Where is he?Elaine: Isn’t that blue car him?Jerry: No, no that’s not him. What happened to him. I can’t believe it. I lost him. That stupid idiot. Now what are we gonna do?Elaine: It’s no big deal, Jerry. We’ll just meet him at the bubble boy’s house.Jerry: I don’t even know where the bubble boy lives. I don’t even remember the name of the town.Elaine: You don’t have the directions?Jerry: No, I was following him.Elaine: How could you not take the directions?Jerry: Because HE’S my directions.
S04E08 – The Cheever Letters (Quotes)
Elaine: (apologizing for Jerry) It’s very hard being a stand-up comedian. Sometimes they don’t laugh!

What does that mean?Jerry: I don’t know! It just popped out.George: Well, how did she react?Jerry: She flipped out! Just left.George: Well, that’s not offensive. It’s abnormal, but it’s not offensive.
Elaine: Maybe I’ll go visit my mother. She just bought me some new panties and they’re all…laid out for me.
George: Time is what he’s indicating here.
George: I’m gonna need some water here!
S04E09 – The Opera (Quotes)
Jerry: The hardest part about being a clown, it seems to me, would be that you’re constantly referred to as a clown. “Who was that clown?”, “I’m not working with that clown, did you hire that clown?”, “The guy’s a clown!”. How do you even start into being a clown, how do you know that you want to be a clown, I guess you get to a point where your pants look so bad, it’s actually easier to become a clown than having the proper alterations done. Because if you think about it, a clown, if there isn’t a circus around them, is really just a very annoying person. You’re in the back seat of this guy’s Volkswagen, “What, you’re picking somebody else up? Oh man!”
Joe Davola: Hello, Jerry. It’s Joe Davola. (spits) Sorry, I had a hair on my tongue. But, of course, you should know; you put it there. I know what you said about me, Seinfeld. I know you bad-mouthed me to the execs at NBC; put the kibosh on my deal. Now I’m gonna put the kibosh on you. You know I’ve kiboshed before, and I will kibosh again.

You were like a Redd Foxx record. I mean, at the end of the toast nobody even drank. They were just standing there, they were just frozen! That might have been one of the worst all time toasts.George: Alright, still her father didn’t have to throw me out like that, he could have just asked me to leave. The guy had me in a headlock!
Elaine:You know, it’s so sad that all you know about high culture comes from Bugs Bunny cartoons.
Jerry: The idea behind the tuxedo is the woman’s point of view that men are all the same, so we might as well dress them that way. That’s why a wedding is like the joining together of a beautiful glowing bride, and some guy. The tuxedo is a wedding safety device created by women because they know that men are undependable. So in case the groom chickens out, everybody just takes one step over and she marries the next guy. That
Elaine: Are you alright? You don’t seem like yourselfJoe: Who am I?Elaine: Good question..very existential. Who am I?..well obviously (looking at wall of photos of her)

Ticket Taker: A crazy clown is after you? Oh, that’s rich!
(Loud thump is heard from the door)Jerry: Who is it?Kramer: It’s me!Kramer: Why are you locking the door now?
Elaine: Oh, dammit, you know I just remembered I gotta go. I left something on, the gas, the lights, the water in the tub. Something is on somewhere so I
Elaine: You left your door open.Joe Davola: I know, I like to encourage intruders.
Joe: Are you still afraid of clowns?Kramer: Uh-huh…
Jerry: But officer, he threatened me. I don’t understand, that’s not right. What if it was the President of the United States, I bet you’d investigate. Well, so what? What’s the difference? I’m a comedian of the United States. And I’ll tell you, I’m under just as much pressure.
Jerry: I don’t like the opera. What are they singing for? Who sings? You got something to say, say it.
Jerry: I like this opera crowd; I feel tough.
S04E10 – The Virgin (Quotes)
George: She’s got a big crush on David Letterman, I mean a big crush. She talks about him all the time. Suppose I go up to David Letterman. He works at NBC, I work at NBC. I explain my situation. He agrees to meet her. They go out. They fall madly in love. And she dumps me for David Letterman!
George: I don’t think I could do it. You know, they always remember the first time. I don’t want to be remembered. I wanna be forgotten.
Jerry: you know, it’s a very interesting situation. Here you have a job that can get you girls. But, you also have a relationship. But if you try and get rid of the relationship so you can get the girls, you lose the job. You see the irony?
Jerry: Let me ask you something. When’s the last time you went skiing?George: About six years ago.Jerry: I think you can take the lift ticket off your jacket now.George: Women like skiers.
Elaine: This whole sex thing is totally overrated. Now, the one thing you gotta be ready for is how the man changes into a completely different person five seconds after it’s over. I mean, something happens to their personality. It’s really quite astounding. It’s like they committed a crime and they want to flee the scene before the police get there.
George: Hey, what about this? I’m in a car accident. The motorist is uninsured, you with me?Jerry: Yeah.George: My car’s totaled. It’s all his fault and now, he has absolutely no money. There is no way that he can pay me. So the judge decrees that he becomes my butler.
Jerry: This is your plan?George: No, no. I’m just thinking.Jerry: I don’t think you are.
George: Every time I think I’m out, they pull me back in!
(George just found out that Susan was fired)George: This is great! He fired her! This is incredible, he fired her. I’m out, baby! I’m out!Jerry: Why did he fire her?George: Because I kissed her in the meeting. Russell found out, he fired her over the phone. Finally, my stupidity pays off!
Elaine: Marla and I went out for coffee and afterwards I was crossing the street and he was biking right towards me. So I got out of the way just in time, but then he ran into a parked car. He hit his head and everything went flying.George: Something happened to the food?!!
Jerry: She’s a virgin. She just told me.Elaine: I didn’t know.Jerry: Well, it’s not like spotting a toupee!Elaine: Do you think I should say something? Should I apologize? Was I being anti-virgin?
Jerry: Let me ask you this: is there any Tampax in your house?George: Yeah…Jerry: Well, I’ll tell you what you got here. You got yourself a girlfriend.George: Oh no!

Jerry: Alright, Costanza. It’s just you and me.George: And then, (smacks the money) there were two.Elaine: Elaine Benes Kennedy Junior…
(George is hypnotized by a sponge bath with a female patient)Estelle: George, you’re cousin, Shelly, is talking to you! (George is still focused)
George: I stopped by the house to drop the car off, and I went inside for a few minutes. Nobody was there. They’re supposed to be working. My mother had a Glamour magazine; I started leafing through it…Jerry: Glamour? (Kramer and Elaine laugh slightly)George: So, one thing lead to another…Jerry: So, what did she do?George: First she screams, “George, what are you doing?! My God!”

George: (from outside the plane, we don’t hear him but he is saying…) KRAMER!!!!
Elaine: Oh, look at this. He’s sleeping and I have to go to the bathroom. Maybe he’ll wake up soon. What if my kidneys burst? Is it worth it not to wake this man up to damage a major organ?

Kramer: Listen to the bell, Grossbard…it tolls for thee.
Jerry: I got my bags. I’m ready to go.Elaine: Yeah, you got your bags!(scene goes to Honolulu International Airport where we see Elaine’s luggage going around the baggage terminal)

George: But you are, blanche. You are in the shackles!Prisoner: You son of a… (gets taken away)George: (happily) Oh, I can’t wait to read my Time magazine. Last copy too.

Kramer: (on Penthouse Forum) Hey, did you ever read one of these?George: It’s not real. They’re all made up.Kramer: Oh, it’s real.George: (sarcastic) You know there is an unusual number of people in this country having sex with AMPUTEES!!Jerry: We’ve got to get the cinnamon.Elaine: No, but they got the chocolate. We’ll be going in with a lesser babka.Jerry: I beg your pardon? Cinnamon takes a back seat to no babka. People love cinnamon. It should be on tables at restaurants along with salt and pepper. Anytime anyone says, “Oh, this is so good. What’s in it?,” the answer invariably comes back, cinnamon. Cinnamon, again and again. Lesser babka? I think not.Jerry: What are we going to do now? If we can’t get the babka the whole thing’s useless.Elaine: Well, how about a carrot cake?Jerry: Carrot cake? Now why is that a cake? You don’t make carrots into a cake. I’m sorry.Elaine: Black Forest?Jerry: Black Forest? Too scary. You’re in the forest, oohh. How about a Napoleon?Elaine: Napoleon? Who’s he to have a cake? He was a ruthless war monger. Might as well get Mengele.
Jerry: The key to eating a black and white cookie is you want to get some black and some white in each bite. Nothing mixes better than vanilla and chocolate. And yet, still, somehow racial harmony eludes us. If people would only look to the cookie. All our problems would be solved.
Jerry: (to George) You’re pretty comfortable up there, huh Bubble Boy?
(A man and woman walk toward the double parked car)George: Oh, hey, hey, hey! That’s great! That’s very nice! You know, we’ve been waiting twenty minutes for you people! What do you think, you’re Mussolini?!Man: Back off, Puff Ball, it’s not my car!(Shoving George’s shoulder, the man turns and walks away)George: I wasn’t talking to you.
George: All right we got the wine. Aren’t we lucky? We got wine. Whoop dee Whoop! Imagine if we didn’t bring the wine… We’d be shunned by society. Outcasts! “WHERE’S YOUR WINE? GET OUT!”
Clerk: Can I get you anything else?Jerry: Oh, no thanks.Clerk: How about a nice box of “scram”?
George: I show up with Ring Dings and Pepsi, I become the biggest hit of the party. People would be coming up to me, “Just between you and me, I’m really excited about the Ring Dings and the Pepsi.” What are we, Europeans with the Beaujolais and Chardonnay…
George: It’s Gore-tex. You know about Gore-tex?Jerry: You like saying ‘Gore-tex’, don’t you?
Liquor Store Clerk: (sounding annoyed) Can I help you guys with anything?George: Oh, no, no, no. We bought the wine here before, but now, you know, we’re blocked in by some guy double parked and we’re just waiting for the guy to pull out.Liquor Store Clerk: Well, wait outside. This isn’t a hangout.George: But my friend here has hypothermia.Kramer: (shivering) Hypothermia.Liquor Store Clerk: All right, guys. Take it outside.(George turns and knocks into a wine display, breaking several bottles)Liquor Store Clerk: You’re paying for these.(Kramer slips on the wine and falls)
Kramer: All right, look, I’m gonna have to pay you back later. I don’t have my wallet.(George swaggers over to Kramer)George: Why not?Kramer: Because I don’t like to carry my wallet. My osteopath says that it’s bad for my spine. It throws my hips off kilter.(He makes a motion with his hips)George: “Throws your hips off kilter.” So where’s your money?Kramer: I never take it.George: So what do you do?Kramer: Oh, I get by.
Elaine: You sold us a hair with a cake around it.
George: You’re telling me wine’s better than Pepsi? Huh! (snort) No way wine’s better than Pepsi!
Elaine: These people invited us for dinner. We have to bring something.George: Why?Elaine: Because it’s rude otherwise.George: You mean just going there because I’m invited, that’s rude.Elaine: Yes.George: So, you’re telling me, instead of them being happy to see me, they’re gonna be upset because I didn’t bring anything. You see what I’m saying?Jerry: The fabric of society’s very complex, George.
Kramer: (Searching for a parking space) Well, I’m not finding a spot here. What do you want to do?George: Ah, just double park.Kramer: No, no.George: Why not?Kramer: I’ll get a ticket! Besides, what if somebody wants to get out of here?George: Are you kidding? People get spaces this good, they never give ’em up.Kramer: That’s a fallacy.George: All right, I’ll tell you what…Why don’t you go into the store and I’ll wait in the car?Kramer: Why don’t you go into the store and I’ll wait in the car?George: Because, I’ve got the coat. I can sit in the car and not get cold.Kramer: So what? I’m going to leave the car running and the heat’ll be on.George: Does the heater even work in the car?Kramer: No.
(after Jerry throws up)Elaine: How was it?Jerry: Good as it gets.
George: You think chickens have individual personalities?Kramer: I don’t know.George: If you had five chickens, could you tell them apart just by the way they acted? Or would they all just be walking around “bak bak baak bak?” Because if they have individual personalities, I’m not sure we should be eating them.

Jerry: (trying to make George look good) He’s working on lowering the cholesterol level in whales. All that blubber, it’s quite unhealthy. You know, it’s the largest mammal on earth. But as George says, they don’t have to be.
George: It was at that moment I decided to tell her that I was not a marine biologist.Jerry: Wow! What did she say?George: She told me to go to hell and I took the bus home.
George: The sea was angry that day, my friends – like an old man trying to send back soup in a deli. I got about fifty feet out and suddenly the great beast appeared before me. I tell you he was ten stories high if he was a foot. As if sensing my presence, he let out a great bellow. I said, “Easy, big fella!” And then, as I watched him struggling, I realized that something was obstructing its breathing. From where I was standing, I could see directly into the eye of the great fish.Jerry: Mammal.George: Whatever.Kramer: Well, what did you do next?George: Well then, from out of nowhere, a huge tidal wave lifted me, tossed me like a cork, and I found myself right on top of him – face to face with the blowhole. I could barely see from the waves crashing down upon me but I knew something was there. So I reached my hand in, felt around, and pulled out the obstruction.(George reveals the obstruction to be a golf ball)Kramer: What is that, a Titleist?(George nods)Kramer: Hole in one, huh?
George: (to Jerry) It’s one thing if I make it up. I know what I’m doing; I know my alleys. You got me in the Galapagos Islands living with the turtles. I don’t know where the hell I am!
Diane: What’s going on over here?Woman: There’s a beached whale, she’s dying.Man: (yelling) Is anyone here a marine biologist?
Jerry: Did you know that the original title for ‘War and Peace’ was ‘War, What Is It Good For?’

George: Then of course with evolution, the octopus lost the nostrils and took on the more familiar look that we know today.
George: As I made my way past the breakers, a sudden calm came over me. I don’t know if it was divine intervention, or the kinship of all living things. But I tell you Jerry, at that moment, I was a marine biologist.
Kramer: Hey… Who wants to have some fun?Jerry/George: I do!Kramer: Now are you just saying you want to have fun, or do you really want to have fun?Jerry: I really want to have fun!George: I’m just saying I want to have some fun.Kramer: I’ve got five hundred Titleists that I got from the driving range in the trunk of my car. Why don’t we drive out to Rockaway, and hit ’em…. into the ocean! Picture this: we find a nice sweet spot between the dunes, take out our drivers, we tee up, and poof! The ball goes sailing up into the sky, holds there for a moment, and then: uggh!

Jerry: Well, Poppy’s a little sloppy.
Kramer: You guys ought to see the way she works her nails across my back. Ooooo! She’s a maestro. The criss-cross, the figure-eight, strummin’ on the old banjo. And this wild savage free-for-all where anything can happen!
Jerry: Boy, the resemblance is uncanny.
George: Oh, I’ll pay…half-price.
Elaine: (to a rude store clerk) Did you just roll your eyes at him? Because let me tell you something. If anybody should be rolling their eyes, it is me, at him, about you.

Elaine: He took, hah hah… it out.
Kramer: Hey. Hey how was your date with Phil Tatola?Elaine: He took it out.(Kramer acts shocked)Kramer: Maybe uh, it needed some air. You know sometimes they need air, they can’t breathe in there. It’s inhuman.
Elaine: If you were a woman, would you go out with him?Jerry: If I was a woman, I’d be down at the dock waiting for the fleet to come in.
Fulton: I haven’t cracked a smile in months.Jerry: Oh, don’t worry, you’ll crack. Cracking’s inevitable. First you crack, then you chuckle.

George: A guy leaves a puddle of sweat, that’s a signal?Elaine: Yeah, it’s a social thing.

Marty: (to Meryl) Sure, you get the discount, too.Jerry: You might regret that, because the money my wife spends on clothes…Meryl: I’m taking him to the cleaners!Jerry: Ah – see the sense of humor? C’mere, I’m so nuts about you… (hugs Meryl) I tell ya, it was fun being single, but when you meet a woman like this, you don’t walk to get married – you run!
Jerry: Of all the places that you go all the time, the dry-cleaning relationship is one of the most bizarre. Because, you keep giving each other the same thing, back and forth, over and over again. He gives it to you, you give it to him, he gives it back to you. It’s like it’s half his shirt, in a way. He has it as much as you do…you ought to go shopping with him. “What do you think of this shirt?” “That would look good with a light starch.” The only warning label people really respect is “dry-clean only.” Y’know what I mean? Speed limits, lung cancer, cigarette warnings – your very life is at stake! People go, “Ah, the hell with it!” But dry-clean only? “Oh, don’t put that in the wash! It’s dry-clean only! Are you crazy?!”
Jerry: I guess I just wasn’t ready for the responsibilities of a pretend-marriage.

George: (to Joey) Where the hell is your FATHER?!
Helen: Hello, Newman!

S05E20 – The Fire (Quotes)
Toby: Look, I have goose bumps. Touch! Touch them!

George: Go fold your little balloon animals, Eric. Eric… What kind of name is that for a clown?
Kramer: Then, everybody is screaming because the bus driver is passed out from all the commotion. The bus is out of control! So I grab him by the collar, take him out of the seat. I get behind the wheel and now I’m driving the bus!George: You’re Batman.Kramer: Yeah, yeah I am Batman. Then the mugger, he comes to and he starts choking me. So I’m fighting him off with one hand, and I kept driving the bus with the other, you know. Then, I managed to open up the door and I kicked him out the door, you know.

You’re livin’ in the past, man! You’re hung up on some clown from the ’60s, man!
Jerry: Bozo the Clown. I mean, does he really need “the Clown” in his title, as clown? Are we gonna confuse him with Bozo the District Attorney? Bozo the Pope? There’s no other Bozo.
Kramer: (talking about Toby) Oooh, she’s a package full of energy.Elaine: Yeah, she’s a package full of something.
Robin’s Mother: (at George) That’s the coward that left us to die!
George: You did all this for a pinkie toe?Kramer: Well, it’s a valuable appendage.
George: She should be commending me for treating everyone like equals.Jerry: Well, perhaps when she’s released from the burnt center she’ll see things differently.
Jerry: So you feel women and children first, in this day and age, is somewhat of an antiquated notion?George: To some degree.Jerry: So basically, it’s every man, woman, child, and invalid for themselves…George: In a manner of speaking.
Jerry: Men don’t care what’s on TV, men only care what else is on TV.
Kramer: (about Jerry) After he heckled Toby, she got so upset she ran out of the building. And a street sweeper ran over her foot, and severed her pinkie toe.George: That’s unbelievable!Kramer: Yeah, then after the ambulance left I found the toe. So I put it in a Cracker Jack box filled it with ice, and took off for the hospital.George: You ran?Kramer: No, I jumped on the bus. I told the bus driver ‘I’ve got a toe here buddy, step on it!’

Significant shrinkage.Jerry: So you feel you were shortchanged.George: Yes. I mean, if she thinks that’s me, she’s under a complete misapprehension. That was not me, Jerry. That was not me.
George: I think that you think that a certain something is not all that it could be, when, in fact, it is all that it should be… And more!Jane: I’m sure it is.George: Look, you don’t understand. There was shrinkage.

George: A job with the New York Yankees! This has been the dream of my life ever since I was a child, and it’s all happening because I’m completely ignoring every urge towards common sense and good judgment I’ve ever had. This is no longer just some crazy notion, Elaine, Jerry. This is my religion.Jerry: So I guess your messiah would be the Anti-Christ.
Kramer: (to Jerry) You know who you are? Even Steven.
Yankees exec: This is Mr. Costanza. He’s one of the applicants.Steinbrenner: Nice to meet you.George: Well, I wish I could say the same. But I must say, with all due respect, I find it very hard to see the logic behind some of the moves you have made with this fine organization. In the past twenty years you have caused myself, and the city of New York, a good deal of distress, as we have watched you take our beloved Yankees and reduce them to a laughing stock, all for the glorification of your massive ego!Steinbrenner: Hire this man!
George: My name is George. I’m unemployed and I live with my parents.Woman: I’m Victoria. Hi.
George: Bald men with no jobs and no money who live with their parents don’t approach strange women.
George: Why did it all turn out like this for me? I had so much promise. I was personable. I was bright. Oh, maybe not academically speaking, but I was perceptive. I always know when someone’s uncomfortable at a party. It all became very clear to me sitting out there today, that every decision I’ve ever made in my entire life has been wrong. My life is the complete opposite of everything I want it to be. Every instinct I have in every aspect of life, be it something to wear, something to eat… It’s often wrong.
Mr. Cushman: Why don’t you tell me about some of your previous job experiences?George: Alrighty. My last job was in publishing. I got fired for having sex in my office with the cleaning woman.
Victoria: Who are you George Costanza?George: I’m the opposite of every guy you’ve ever met.
George: ( to his parents ) I want you to know how much you mean to me. I love you both very very much.Jerry: (whispering to Kramer) Opposite….
Kramer: I’m starting the book tour! First stop – Regis and Kathie Lee!Jerry: You’re going on Regis and Kathie Lee?Kramer: Oh, you better believe it.Jerry: I’ll loan you my puffy shirt.
George: Shut your traps and stop kicking the seats! We’re trying to watch the movie! And if I have to tell you again, we’re gonna take it outside and I’m gonna show you what it’s like! You understand me!? Now, shut your mouths or I’ll shut ’em for ya, and if you think I’m kidding, just try me! Try me, because I would love it!
Jerry: The New York Yankees?George: The New York Yankees!Jerry: Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Mantle… Costanza?!
Jerry: You’re going on Regis and Kathy Lee? I’ll loan you my puffy shirt.
Jerry: (to George) If every instinct you have is wrong, then the opposite would have to be right.
Elaine: (after realizing she and George have switched fates) I’m George. I’M GEORGE!
Regis Philbin: (introducing Kramer) This guy could be a little bonkos.
Jerry: Chicken salad’s not the opposite of tuna. Salmon is the opposite of tuna, because salmon swim against the current, while the tuna swim with it.George: Good for the tuna.

Kramer: Let’s try a few more questions, alright? If you were Miss America, and the U.S. was on the brink of a nuclear war, and the only way the conflict could be averted was if you agreed to sleep with the enemy’s leader, what would you do?
(after Kramer has just shouted at Jerry for killing Karen’s doves)George: What was that all about?Jerry: Oh, it was just Kramer. Apparently I killed Miss Rhode Island’s doves with the bucket of water last night.George: (with apathy and insensitivity) Huh.
Jerry: Hot dog?Miss Rhode Island: No thanks. I’m watching my weight.Jerry: Oh. I’m watching my height. My doctor doesn’t want me to get any taller.
Announcer: Mattingly just split his pants!Jerry: Ah, that’s a shame.
Kramer: These doves were murdered.
Jerry: I’m going out with one of the Miss America contestants. You want to go?Kramer: What state?Jerry: Rhode Island.Kramer: They’re never in contention.
Kramer: (singing) There she is…Miss Amer-Jerry: Oh, shut the f*** up.
Jerry: So you’re Miss Rhode Island? I was almost named Mr. Coffee, they felt I was a little too relaxed.
Elaine: All right, all right. Look. I don’t have grace. I don’t want grace. I don’t even say grace. Okay?!
(watching Miss Rhode Island sing)Jerry: It’s like watching an animal get tortured.
Announcer #1: And the Yankees take the field!Announcer #2: What is with the Yankees? They look like they’re having trouble running, they can’t move!Announcer #1: It’s their uniforms, they’re too tight, they’ve shrunk! They’re running like penguins! Forget this game!

Danielle: George, I can’t move in with you.George: What?Danielle: I’m sorry, but I’m taking Neil to a clinic in England.George: No. You can’t leave me. Marry me! I’ll burn myself! I’LL BURN MY PARENTS!!
Izzy Jr.: (to Jerry) Hey, who are you?Izzy: This is Seinfeld’s kid.Izzy Jr.: Oh, you think you’re tough, picking on an old man? Maybe you’d like to try taking on somebody your own age.Jerry: (chuckling) You got any kids?
Mr. Peterman: Elaine, why didn’t you tell me you saw “The English Patient” and hated it?………You’re fired.

Kramer: Well, I had been swimming for 3 hours and I was in a real groove so I decided to keep going, but at 10 they start the aquasize. 35 geriatrics throwing elbows. It’s like a flabby arm spanking machine.
Jerry: How could you swim in that water!?Kramer: I saw a couple of other guys out there.Jerry: Swimming?Kramer: Well, floating. They weren’t moving much…but they were out there!
Jerry: What is that smell?Kramer: That’s East River.Jerry: You’re swimming in the East River? The most heavily trafficked, overly contaminated waterway on the eastern seaboard?Kramer: Technically, Norfolk has more gross tonnage.
Jerry: The walking date is a good date. You don’t have to look right at the person.Elaine: Hey, it’s the next best thing to being alone.George: I love a good nap. Sometimes it’s the only thing getting me out of bed in the morning.Elaine: So Kramer completely funked up my mattress.Jerry: Does it smell like the East River?Elaine: How did you know?Jerry: Because Kramer has been swimming laps between the Queensborough bridge and the Brooklyn bridge.Elaine: (a la Kramer) Oh, GREAT!Son: Hey, there’s a man swimming in the water.Father: No, that’s probably just a dead body, son. You see, when the mob kills someone they throw the body in the river.

Elaine: It’ll be years before they find another place to hide more cheese on a pizza.
George: Jerry, look at my eyes.Jerry: Hmmm… they’re a little less beady today.George: Because I’m refreshed! I finally found a way to sleep in my office. Under the desk! I lie on my back, I tuck in the chair. I’m invisible!Jerry: Sounds like a real cool fort.

Huh?Jerry: Hey.Tim: Those aren’t matzo balls.Jerry: Tim, do you think you should be making jokes like that?Tim: Why not?
