    "How do you oversleep at the Olympics?"
    "Oh, I know. I know."
    "I mean, it's like the biggest event of your life! You'd think you'd have, like, six alarm clocks, paying off little kids in the village to come banging on your door."
    - Jerry and Elaine, in "The Hot Tub"
     
    "Imagine your whole life riding on an alarm clock."
    - Jerry, in "The Hot Tub"
     
    "I can't come up with anything for this thing."
    "Ah... catalog writer's block?"
    - Elaine and Jerry, in "The Hot Tub"
     
    "Hey, you bastards."
    "Hey, how was the meeting?"
    "I really like those sons of bitches."
    "Sons of bitches?"
    "Yeah! That's how they talk. You know, everyone's either a bastard or a son of a bitch."
    - George and Jerry, in "The Hot Tub"
     
    "Jerry, look how tense you are. You need to take a soak."
    "I'm not taking a soak in that human bacteria vat you got goin' there."
    "Come on, I'm telling you, it's great. I opened up all the windows. The air is cold, the tub is boiling hot. It's like Sweden, man. Sweden!"
    - Kramer and Jerry, in "The Hot Tub"
     
    "What happened to your mental alarm?"
    "I guess I hit the snooze."
    - Jerry and Kramer, in "The Hot Tub"
     
    "We all get a little cuckoo sometimes, George. I used to be like you. Berating personnel until they cried, calling managers on the field during a game, threatening to move the team to New Jersey, just to upset people. Then I found a way to relax. I've got two words to say to you, George... Hot Tub!"
    - George Steinbrenner, in "The Hot Tub"
  • The Boyfriend
    "I have to dribble. If I give it to you, you just shoot. You're a chucker."
    "Oh, I'm a chucker."
    "That's right, everytime you get the ball you shoot."
    "I can't believe you called me a chucker. No way I'm a chucker. I do not chuck, never chucked, never have chucked, never will chuck, no chuck!"
    - Jerry, in "The Boyfriend"
     
    "I snuck a peak."
    - Kramer, to Jerry and George, after they showered at the gym, in "The Boyfriend"

    - Jerry, in "The Boyfriend"
     
    "I'd love to be a Civil War buff. What do you have to do to be a buff?"
    "So Biff wants to be a buff? Well, sleeping less than eighteen hours a day would be a start."
    - George and Jerry, in "The Boyfriend"
     
    "Jerry, he's a guy."

    "Something happened that changed us in a deep and profound way from that day forward."

    Newman, in "The Boyfriend"
     
    "I'm Vandelay Industries?"
    "Right."
    "And what is that?"

    "Latex? And what do I do with latex?"
    "You manufacture it."
    - Jerry and George, in "The Boyfriend"
     
    "What kind of a shake does he have?"
    "Good shake. Perfect shake. Single pump, not too hard. You know, doesn't
    have to prove anything, but, you know, firm enough to know he was there."
    - George and Jerry, talking about Keith Hernandez, in "The Boyfriend"
     
    "Vandelay Industries, Kel Varnsen speaking. May we help you?"

    - Jerry, to George, in "The Boyfriend"
    "Elaine, you don't know the first thing about first base."
    "Well, I know something about getting to first base. And I know you'll never be there."
    "The way I figure it I've already been there, and I plan on rounding second tonight at around eleven o'clock."
    "Well, uh, I'd watch the third base coach if I were you because I don't think he's waving you in."
    - Keith and Elaine, in "The Boyfriend"

    "Discovered the Mississippi."
    "Oh, like they wouldn't have found that anyway."

    "He yells and you don't get your soup."
    - Jerry and Elaine, in "The Soup Nazi"
     
    "It's very important not to embellish on your order. No extraneous comments. No questions. No compliments."
    - Jerry, in "The Soup Nazi"
     
    "He gave you the nice face discount."
    - Jerry, to Elaine, in "The Soup Nazi"
     
    "Um, excuse me, I - I think you forgot my bread."
    "Bread, two dollars extra."
    "Two dollars? But everyone in front of me got free bread."
    "You want bread?"
    "Yes, please."
    "Three dollars!"
    "What?"
    "No soup for you!"
    - George and the Soup Nazi, in "The Soup Nazi"
     
    "Why can't we share?"
    "I told you not to say anything. You can't go in there, brazenly flaunt the rules and then think I'm gonna share with you."
    "Do you hear yourself?"
    "I'm sorry. This is what comes from living under a Nazi regime."
    - George and Jerry, in "The Soup Nazi"
     
    "He's not a Nazi. He just happens to be a little eccentric. Most geniuses are."
    - Kramer, in "The Soup Nazi"
     
    "Shhh! I gotta focus. I'm shifting into soup mode."
    - George, in "The Soup Nazi"

    "Hmmm?"

    - Elaine and the Soup Nazi, in "The Soup Nazi"
     
    "Street toughs took my armoire?"
    - Elaine, in "The Soup Nazi"
     
    "So, essentially, you chose soup over a woman?"
    "It was a bisque."
    "Yeah. You know what I just realized? Suddenly, George has become much more normal than you."
    - Elaine and Jerry, in "The Soup Nazi"
     
    "I don't think George has ever thought he's better than anybody."
    - Elaine, in "The Soup Nazi"
     
    "You are the only one who understands me."
    "You suffer for your soup."
    - The Soup Nazi and Kramer, in "The Soup Nazi"
     
    "Well, behind every joke there's some truth."
    "What about that Bavarian cream pie joke I told you? There's no truth to that. Nobody with a terminal illness goes from the United States to Europe for a piece of Bavarian cream pie and then when they get there and they don't have it he says, 'Ah, I'll just have some coffee.' There's no truth to that."
    - Sheila and Jerry, in "The Soup Nazi"
     
    "You're through, Soup Nazi. Pack it up. No more soup for you. Next!"

    "It's like having a circus in my mouth."
    - Kramer, eating Mackinaw peaches, in "The Doodle"

    "What did you do about them?"
    "What do you mean?"
    - Kramer and Jerry, in "The Doodle"
     
    "When he's dead he'll be relieved."
    - Jerry, about George, in "The Doodle"
     
    "She said looks aren't that important to her."
    - Elaine, to George, in "The Doodle"
     
    "See, the thing of it is, there's a lot of ugly people out there walking around but they don't know they're ugly because nobody actually tells them."
    - Jerry, in "The Doodle"
     
    "The point, George, is she likes you."
    "Oh, so what. I'd rather she hate me and thought I was good looking."
    - Elaine and George, in "The Doodle"
     
    "I know the chunky that left these Chunkies! Newman!"
    - Jerry, in "The Doodle"

    - Newman, to Jerry, in "The Doodle"
     
    "You could drape yourself in velvet for all I care."
    - Paula, to George, in "The Doodle"
     
    "Well, it's a story of love, deception, greed, lust, and unbridled enthusiasm."
    - Kramer, describing the book he read, in "The Doodle"

    - Jerry, to Kramer, in "The Doorman"
     
    "You want me to wear a bra?"
    "No, no, a bra is for ladies. Meet the Bro!"
    - Frank and Kramer, in "The Doorman"
     
    "Bro's no good. Too ethnic."
    "You got something better?"
    "How about the Mansiere?"
    "Mansiere."
    "That's right. A brassiere for a man."
    - Frank and Kramer, in "The Doorman"
     
    "He's a comedian, Mrs. Payton. They don't know how to do anything."
    - Elaine, about Jerry, in "The Doorman"
     
    "I'm sure he's having a good laugh over this with his doorman buddies."
    - Jerry, in "The Doorman"
     
    "Say you're getting intimate with a woman, you don't want her fumbling and struggling back there. I think we've all experienced that."
    - Kramer, in "The Doorman"
     
    "You had me sleeping on a pee-stained couch?!"
    "No no no, the cushion was turned over."
    "But the very idea. You had me lying in urine."
    - Frank and George, in "The Doorman"
     
    "I lived with him for forty years, I never saw him trying on my underwear. As soon as he leaves the house he turns into J. Edgar Hoover!"
    - Estelle, after seeing Frank trying on the Bro, in "The Doorman"
     
    "You're not having dinner with a bra salesman!"
    "He only sells them, he doesn't wear them."
    - Frank and Estelle, in "The Doorman"
  • The Maid
    "Well, Jerry, I've been thinking. I've gone as far as I can go with George Costanza."
    "Is this the suicide talk or the nickname talk?"
    "The nickname... George, what is that? It's nothing. It's got no snap, no zip. I need a nickname that makes people light up."
    "You mean like Liza!"
    "I was thinking T-Bone."
    "But there's no T in your name. What about G-Bone?"
    "There's no G-Bone."
    "There's a G-Spot."
    "That's a myth."
    - George and Jerry, in "The Maid"
     
    "Are you sure you don't have one, because there's a lot of stuff in my apartment I've never seen."
    "Then maybe you have a fax machine."

    - Kramer and Elaine, in "The Maid"
     
    "There's nothing more sophisticated than diddling the maid and then chewing some gum."
    - Elaine, to Jerry, in "The Maid"
     
    "Look, I work for the phone company. I've had a lot of experience with semantics, so don't try to lure me into some maze of circular logic."
    "You know, I could've killed you and no one would've known."
    "I could've killed you and no one would've known."
    - Phone repairman and Elaine, in "The Maid"
     
    "You're sleeping with the maid?"
    "Yes."

    "Okay everybody, I have an announcement to make. From now on, I will be known as..."
    "Koko the monkey."

    - Jerry and Kramer, in "The Maid"
     
    "What a nightmare it must be to have a real family."
    - Elaine, in "The Maid"
     
    "What street are you on?"
    "I'm on First and First. How can the same street intersect with itself? I must be at the nexus of the universe!"

    - Jerry, to Farfel the dog, in "The Dog"

    "Oh yeah! The sooner the better. I can't wait to do it. You know how there's some people you worry about whether or not you're gonna hurt their feelings? With her, I'm looking forward to it. Boy, I'd like to get it on video. Watch it in slow motion and freeze frame it!"
    - Kramer, in "The Dog"
     
    "I relate to George through you. We're more like friends-in-law."
    - Elaine, to Jerry, in "The Dog"
     
    "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."
    - Kramer, to Ellen, in "The Dog"
     
    "That's it Farfel. Party's over! Start packing up your little squeeze toys, buddy boy. You're checking out!"
    - Jerry, in "The Dog"
     
    "Jerry, do you know what they do to dogs at the pound? They keep them for a week and then if no one claims them, they kill 'em."
    "Really? How late are they open?"
    - Elaine and Jerry, in "The Dog"
     
    "I believe I referred to her personality as a potential science exhibit."

    "I wanted to talk about how we had nothing to talk about."
    - Elaine, about George, in "The Dog"
  • The Fusilli Jerry
    "Elaine, you always care who an ex-girlfriend dates. You don't want it to be someone you know, and you don't want it to be someone better than you. Now, even though the latter's obviously impossible, the former still applies."
    - Jerry, in "The Fusilli Jerry"
     
    "All those mechanics do is work all day with their hands and their big muscular arms on machines and then they come home dripping with animal sexuality like Stanley Kowalski. What a huge turn-off that is."
    - Elaine, being sarcastic to Jerry, in "The Fusilli Jerry"
     
    "I think we really need to be in front of the television set. You take TV out of this relationship, it is just torture."
    - George, to his mother Estelle, in "The Fusilli Jerry"
     
    "I'm out there, George."
    "You're not out there."

    - George and Estelle, who is dating again, in "The Fusilli Jerry"
     
    "We were in the garage. You know how garages are. They're conducive to sex talk. It's a high testosterone area."
    - Jerry, in "The Fusilli Jerry"
     
    "Give me a moan, something. I'd settle for a belch, for God's sake."
    - George, about pleasuring his girlfriend, in "The Fusilli Jerry"
     
    "It's Fusilli Jerry! It's made from fusilli pasta. See the microphone?"
    "When did you do this?"
    "In my spare time. You know, I'm working on one of you George. I'm using ravioli. See, the hard part is to find a pasta that captures the individual."
    "Why fusilli?"
    "Because you're silly. Get it?"
    - Kramer and Jerry, in "The Fusilli Jerry"
     
    "I'm Cosmo Kramer, the Assman!"
    - Kramer, in "The Fusilli Jerry"
     
    "Have you ever met a proctologist? They usually have a very good sense of humor. You meet a proctologist at a party, don't walk away. Plant yourself there because you will hear the funniest stories you've ever heard. See, no one wants to admit to them that they stuck something up there. Never. It's always an accident. Every proctologist story ends in the same way... 'It was a million to one shot, doc, million to one.' "
    - Kramer, in "The Fusilli Jerry"
     
    "You know what a good mechanic is worth? You can't compare that to sex."
    - Jerry, in "The Fusilli Jerry"

    - George and Jerry, in "The Merv Griffin Show"
     
    "There's this creepy new guy at work. He just comes out of nowhere and he's right next to you."

    - Elaine and Jerry, in "The Merv Griffin Show"
     
    "It's the Merv Griffin set."
    "How did you get this in here?"
    "You just bring it in sideways and hook it."
    "So where are you gonna sleep?"
    "Backstage."
    - Kramer and Jerry, in "The Merv Griffin Show"
     
    "I am going to sidle the sidler."
    "You sidle? You stomp around like a Clydesdale."
    - Elaine and Jerry, in "The Merv Griffin Show"

    "So they're like everyone else."
    - George and Jerry, in "The Merv Griffin Show"
     
    "Wait a minute. You mean to say that you drugged a woman so you could take advantage of her toys?"
    - Kramer, to Jerry, in "The Merv Griffin Show"
     
    "Jerry, now what you do with your personal life is your business. But when you're on my set, you clean it up mister!"
    - Kramer, in "The Merv Griffin Show"

    - Kramer and Newman, in "The Merv Griffin Show"
     
    "Maybe it'll be fun having a pet?"
    "It's not a pet. It's a wild invalid. And it knows that I tried to kill it. As soon as it gets better, it's gonna gnaw my brain out in my sleep."
    - George, about the squirrel he has to care for, in "The Merv Griffin Show"
     
    "Where are the cameras?"
    - Jim Fowler, appearing on Kramer's set, in "The Merv Griffin Show"

    "I don't remember, but it certainly wasn't this."
    - Elaine and Jerry, in "The Cartoon"
     
    "Hey Kramer."
    "Hey, you got some messages. Yeah, uh... George, George, Elaine, George again, Elaine... Newman, but that was a crank call."
    - Kramer, to Jerry, in "The Cartoon"
     
    "She does stink. And she should quit. But I don't want it to be because of me. It should be the traditional route. Years of rejection and failure until she's spit out the bottom of the porn industry."
    - Jerry, in "The Cartoon"
     
    "You know what woman I always thought you looked like? Lena Horne."
    - Kramer, to Jerry, in "The Cartoon"
     
    "And you must... look exactly like Jerry."
    - Kramer, to George's new girlfriend Janet, in "The Cartoon"

    - Kramer, in "The Cartoon"
     
    "What do I need to talk for, huh? What, to blab to the neighbors about how George has a new femme Jerry friend? To tell everybody at the coffee shop how George is all mixed up in a perverse sexual amalgam of some girl and his best friend? See now, I've done all that. Now it's time for silence."
    "Silence, yes!"
    - Kramer and George, in "The Cartoon"
     
    "He said I could submit some of my own cartoons."
    "Wow, that's incredible. But you don't draw."
    "I do too."
    "What, your sad little horsies? The house with the little curl of smoke? The sunflower with the smiley face. The transparent cube."
    "It's better than your drawings of naked Lois Lane."
    "Where did you see that?" Those are private!"

    "Hey Elaine, have you noticed your boyfriend has developed an annoying little habit?"
    "The squinting?"
    "No."

    "I thought all guys do that."
    "Slapping hands is the lowest form of primate ritual."
    - Jerry and Elaine, in "The Dealership"
     
    "What do you think the Nazis were doing? That was the Heil-five."
    "Isn't that from your act, like ten years ago?"

    "I said 'God bless you.' Was that so wrong?"
    "The question is, did you allow a space for the husband to come in with his 'God bless you,' because as the husband he has the right to first refusal."
    "Yes, yes, I definitely waited. But let me say this. Once he passes on that option, that 'God bless you' is up for grabs."
    "No argument. Unless she's one of these multiple sneezers and he's holding his 'God bless you' in abeyance until she completes the series."

    - Elaine and Joe Davola, in "The Opera"

    "Everything with you comes down to toilet paper."
    "What?"
    "That's always the first question with you. Why is that always your focus?"
    "Alright, then what did they do?"
    "I don't know. Maybe they gave out big loose clumps to all the soldiers."
    "I think it would be nice if there was some sort of historical record of it."
    "Maybe they should have a toilet paper museum. Would you like that? So we could see all the toilet paper advancements down through the ages. Toilet paper during the Crusades, the development of the perforation, the first six-pack."
    - George and Jerry, in "The Pitch"
     
    "They want you to do a TV show?"

    "You really need some help. 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 talking about, because that's the only way you're going to get better."
    - Jerry, to George, in "The Pitch"

    "Kramer, I've been reviewing your work. Quite frankly, it stinks."
    "Well, I've been having trouble at home and, uh, I'll work harder. Nights, weekends, whatever it takes."
    "No, no, I don't think that's going to do it. These reports you handed in, it's almost as if you have no business training at all. I don't know what this is supposed to be."
    "Well, I'm just trying to get ahead."
    "I'm sorry, there's just no way that we can keep you on."

    - George and Jerry, in "The Foundation"

    "Now here's the lowdown. Through a certain connection, I've been able to locate some black market shower heads. They're all made in the former Yugoslavia. And from what I hear, the Serbs are fanatic about their showers."
    "Not from the footage I've seen."
    - Newman and Jerry, in "The Shower Head"
     
    "This is Frank Costanza. You think you can keep us out of Florida? We're moving in lock, stock and barrel. We're gonna be in the pool. We're gonna be in the clubhouse. We're gonna be all over that shuffleboard court. And I dare you to keep me out!"
    - Frank Costanza, to Jerry's dad, in "The Shower Head"
     
    "Look at you, you're disgusting. You're bald, you're paunchy. All kinds of sounds are emanating from your body twenty-four hours a day. If there's a woman that can take your presence for more than ten consecutive seconds, you should hang on to her like grim death... which is not far off by the way."
    - Jerry, to Uncle Leo, in "The Shower Head"
  • Good News, Bad News Good News, Bad News

    "Jerry, I have to tell you something. This is the dullest moment I've ever experienced."
    - George, watching laundry, in "Good News, Bad News"
     
    "Don't interrupt the cycle. The machine is working. It knows what it's doing. Just let it finish."
    "You're going to overdry it."
    "You can't overdry."
    "Why not?"
    "The same reason you can't overwet."
    - Jerry and George, in "Good News, Bad News"
     
    "I can't believe you're bringing in an extra bed for a woman that wants to sleep with you. Why don't you bring in an extra guy too."
    - George, to Jerry, in "Good News, Bad News"
     
    "I'm aware of you."
    - George, to Kramer, in "Good News, Bad News"
     
    "Wouldn't it be great if you could ask a woman what she's thinking?"
    "What a world that would be if you could just ask a woman what she's thinking."
    "You know, instead I'm like a detective. I gotta pick up clues. The whole thing's a murder investigation."
    - Jerry and George, in "Good News, Bad News"
  • The Burning
    "I had 'em Jerry. They loved me."
    "And then?"
    "I lost 'em. I can usually come up with one good comment during a meeting, but by the end it's buried under a pile of gaffes and bad puns."
    "Showmanship, George. When you hit that high note, say goodnight and walk off."
    - George and Jerry, in "The Burning"
     
    "You prefer dumb and lazy to religious?"
    "Dumb and lazy I understand."
    - Jerry and Elaine, in "The Burning"

    - Mickey and Kramer, in "The Burning"
     
    "I'm against all 'It's me's'. It's so self-absorbed and egotistical, like those hip musicians with their complicated shoes."
    - George, in "The Burning"
     
    "Alright, that's it for me! Be good everybody!"
    - George, going out on a high note, in "The Burning"

    "Pull the old switcheroo."
    "I think that's 'What's good for the goose is good for the gander.'"
    "What the hell is a gander anyway?"
    "It's a goose that's had the old switcheroo pulled on her."
    - George and Jerry, in "The Burning"

    - Sophie, in "The Burning"
     
    "Don't you even care? This is your company. It's your name on the outside of the building. Speaking of which, the R fell off and all it says now is K-UGER."
    "K-UGER. That sounds like one of those old time car horns, huh? K-UGER! K-UGER!"
    "You are too much, Mr. Kruger. Too much!"
    "Thank you George, you've been great. That's it for me!"

    "Serenity now! Serenity now!"
    "What is that?"
    "The doctor gave me a relaxation cassette. When my blood pressure gets too high, the man on the tape tells me to say 'serenity now!'"
    "Are you supposed to yell it?"
    "The man on the tape wasn't specific."
    - Frank and George, in "The Serenity Now"

    "Irked."
    "I would like to see you get really mad."
    - Patty and Jerry, in "The Serenity Now"

    "I'm open. There's just nothing in there."
    - Jerry, in "The Serenity Now"

    - Frank, in "The Serenity Now"
     
    "What's the matter?"
    "It's Patty."
    "Jerry, you break up with a girl every week."
    "What is this salty discharge?"
    "Oh my God, you're crying."
    "This is horrible. I care."
    - Elaine and Jerry, in "The Serenity Now"
     
    "I don't know what's happening to me."
    "Simple. You let out one emotion, all the rest will come. It's like Endora's Box."
    "That was the mother on Bewitched. You mean Pandora."
    "Yeah, well, she had one too."
    - Jerry and Kramer, in "The Serenity Now"
     
    "Serenity now, insanity later."
    - Lloyd Braun, in "The Serenity Now"
    "George, letting my emotions out was the best thing I've ever done. Sure, I'm not funny anymore, but there's more to life than making shallow, fairly obvious observations."
    - Jerry, in "The Serenity Now"
  • The Voice
    "Breaking up is like knocking over a Coke machine. You can't do it in one push. You gotta rock it back and forth a few times, and then it goes over."
    - Jerry, in "The Voice"
     
    "I come up with these things, I know they're gold but nothing happens. You know why?"
    "No resources, no skill, no talent, no ability, no brains, no..."
    "No, no time! It's all these menial tasks. Laundry, grocery shopping, coming in here and talking to you. You have any idea how much time I waste in this apartment?"
    "I could ballpark it."
    - Kramer and Jerry, in "The Voice"
    "You remember my corporation, Kramerica Industries?"
    "Alright."
    "Well, apparently NYU is very enthusiastic about their students getting some real world corporate experience."

    - Kramer, in "The Reverse Peephole"
     
    "Why are we in Jerry's apartment?"
    "Well, I like to think of this as my conference room. It has a more formal atmosphere, you know, with the shelves... and the furniture."
    - Silvio and Kramer, in "The Reverse Peephole"
     
    "So now Joe Mayo wants me to buy him a new coat."
    "Because you threw it out."
    "No, because I was in charge of the coats. It's insane!"
    "But you did actually throw his coat out the window?"
    "But he doesn't know that. As far as he knows someone stole it, and that's the person who should be held responsible."
    "But that's you."
    "So I guess I'll have to buy him a new coat, even though I don't think I should be held responsible, which I am anyway."
    - Elaine and Jerry, in "The Reverse Peephole"
     
    "My back is killing me."

    - George and Jerry, in "The Reverse Peephole"

    "You know, sometimes I get the feeling George isn't being completely honest with me."
    - Jerry, in "The Reverse Peephole"

    - Newman, entering Elaine's apartment for the first time, in "The Reverse Peephole"
     
    "Hey Silvio. Just out for a little stroll in my favorite fur coat."
    "That is your coat?"
    "It sure is."
    "Kramer says you need it because you're an entertainer and you're desperate for attention."
    "That's true."
    - Jerry and Silvio, in "The Reverse Peephole"
     
    "Hey Silvio, look at Jerry here, prancing around in his coat with his purse. Yup, he's a dandy. He's a real fancy boy!"

    "You know, old friend, sometimes I ponder this silly gulf between us, and I say 'why?'. Are we really so different..."

    "Damn you Seinfeld. You're a useless pustule."
    - Newman and Jerry, in "The Butter Shave"
     
    "Oh man, I think I cooked myself."
    - Kramer, in "The Butter Shave"
     
    "I'm fried."
    "Technically, you're sauteed. So what are you doing for that?"
    "I just gotta keep my skin moist so I don't dry out."
    "Is that what the doctor said?"
    "I read an article in Bon Apetit Magazine."

    "Can you believe she expected me to squire her around town while the dude sits at home in swaddling clothes?"
    "Do they make swaddling clothes for adults?"
    "It's like she's split the job of boyfriend into two jobs. Except the dude's playing the showroom and I'm stuck doing food and beverage."
    - Jerry and George, in "The Summer of George"
     
    "Listen to me. We're always sitting here. I'm always helping you with your girl problems, you're always helping me with my girl problems. Where do we end up?"
    "Here."
    "Exactly. Because neither one of us can handle a woman all by ourselves."
    "I'm trying."
    "I've tried. We don't have it. But maybe the two of us, working together, at full capacity, could do the job of one normal man."
    "Then each of us would only have to be like a half-man. That sounds about right."
    - George and Jerry, in "The Summer of George"
     
    "What is so appealing to men about a catfight?"
    "Because men think if women are grabbing and clawing at each other, there's a chance they might somehow kiss."

  • The Muffin Tops

    - Jerry and Kramer, in "The Muffin Tops"
     
    "So you're pretending to be a tourist?"
    "It's beautiful. She makes all the plans. I'm not from around here, so it's okay if I'm stupid. And she knows I'm only in town visiting, so there's no messy breakups."

    - George, in "The Muffin Tops"
     
    "We have a bonus ultra-reality stop today. We're going to be hauling muffin stumps to the local repository."
    "We're going to a garbage dump?"
    "And we're off!"
    "You know, I never thought he'd be able to recreate the experience of actually knowing him, but this is pretty close."

    "You are looking at the next director of Mets scouting. Only thing is I have to get fired from the Yankees first."
    "You can do that."
    "Of course, but I really want to leave my mark this time. You know, I want to walk away from the Yankees with people saying, 'Wow, now that guy got canned.'"
    "So you want to go out in a final blaze of incompetence."
    "Yeah, remember that summer at Dairy Queen where I cooled my feet in the soft syrup machine?"
    - George and Jerry, in "The Millennium"
    "You think people will still be using napkins in the year 2000? Or is this mouth vacuum thing for real?"

    "What is a barometer exactly?"
    "It's pronounced 'thermometer'."

    "You really think so?"

    - Kramer, telling Elaine about her lookalike mannequin, in "The Pie"
     
    "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."

    "Wrong side?"
    "Yes, she was on his right side. He can't make a move with his left hand. Can't go left."
    "He can't go left?"

    "No, we just play defense."
    - Jerry and Elaine, in "The Implant"

    - George, in "The Implant"

    "Double-dipped? What are you talking about?"
    "You dipped the chip, you took a bite, and you dipped again."
    "So?"
    "That's like putting your whole mouth right in the dip. Look, from now on when you take a chip, just take one dip and end it."
    "Well, I'm sorry Timmy, but I don't dip that way."
    "Oh, you don't, huh?"
    "No. You dip the way you want to dip, I'll dip the way I want to dip."

    - George, waiting to use the phone, in "The Chinese Restaurant"
     
    "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."

    - George, still waiting for the phone, and Jerry, in "The Chinese Restaurant"
     
    "It's not fair that people are seated first-come, first-serve. It should be based on who's hungriest. I feel like just walking over there and taking some food off somebody's plate.
    "I'll tell you what, there's fifty bucks in it for you if you do it."
    "What do you mean?"
    "You walk over to that table, you pick up an eggroll, you don't say anything. You eat it, say thank you very much, wipe your mouth, walk away, I give you fifty bucks."
    "What are they gonna do?"
    "They won't do anything. In fact, you'll be giving them a story to tell for the rest of their lives."
    "Fifty bucks? You'll give me fifty bucks?"
    "Fifty bucks. That table over there. The three couples."
    "Okay, I don't want to go over there and do it and then come back here and find out there was some little loophole, like I didn't put mustard on it."
    "No, no tricks."

    "Remember when you first went out to eat with your parents? Remember, it was such a treat. You go and they serve you this different food that you never saw before.

    "You know, I've been issued a public urination pass by the city because of my condition. Unfortunately, my little brother ran out of the house with it this morning. Him and his friends are probably peeing all over the place."
    - Jerry, in "The Parking Garage"
     
    "What's the difference? We'll all be dead eventually."
    "Does that bother you?"
    "Yeah, it bothers me. Doesn't it bother you?"
    "Not at all."
    "You see, now that bothers me even more than dying bothers me, because it's people like you who live to be 120 because you're not bothered by it. How can it not bother you?"
    "Well, I once saw this thing on TV with people who are terminally ill. Everyone of them believed that the secret of life is just to live every moment."

One whole helluva lot. Sure, go ahead, laugh if you want to. I've seen your type before -- flashy, making the scene, flaunting convention. Yeah, I know what you're thinking... Why's this guy making such a big stink about old library books? Let me give you a hint, junior. Maybe we can live without libraries, people like you and me.... Maybe. Sure, we're too old to change the world. What about that kid, sitting down, opening a book right now in a branch of the local library and finding pictures of pee-pees and wee-wees in The Cat in the Hat and The Five Chinese Brothers. Doesn't he deserve better? Look, if you think this is about overdue fines and missing books, you'd better think again. This is about that kid's right to read a book without getting his mind warped. Or maybe that turns you on, Seinfeld... Maybe that's how you get your kicks... You and your goodtime buddies... I've got a flash for you, joy boy. Partytime is over."

    "So then you asked yourselves, 'Isn't there something more to life?'"
    "Yes, we did."
    "Yeah, well let me clue you in on something... There isn't."
    "There isn't?"
    "Absolutely not. I mean, what are you thinking about, Jerry, marriage? Family? They're prisons! Man-made prisons. You're doing time. You get up in the morning, she's there. You go to sleep at night, she's there. It's like you gotta ask permission to use the bathroom. 'Is it alright if I use the bathroom now?!' And you can forget about watching TV while you're eating."
    "I can?"
    "Oh yeah. You know why? Because it's dinnertime, and you know what you do at dinner?"
    "What?"
    "You talk about your day. 'How was your day today? Did you have a good day today or a bad day today? Well, what kind of day was it? Well, I don't know, how about you, how was your day?'"

    "Do you ever yearn?"
    - Kramer, in "The Keys"
     
    "Having the keys to Jerry's apartment - that kept me in a fantasy world. Every time I went over to his house it was like a vacation: better food, better view, better TV, cleaner, oh, *much* cleaner. That became my reality. I ignored the squalor in my own life because I'm looking at life, you see, through Jerry's eyes. I was living in the twilight, living in the shadows, living in the darkness... like you."

    - Punk dude and Kramer, in "The Keys"
     
    "Don't you see? You're just avoiding the middleman. You were gonna give her her spare keys and she was gonna give 'em to me. So all that's happening is that instead of giving them to her you're giving them to me. It's just unfortunate that when she gave you yours you didn't give her hers because then she would've given them to me. So then I would never have had to ask you for hers so I could get mine."
    "You're right. How did I miss that? (mumbling) Maybe cuz' it's a crock o' sh...."

    "I got news for you. Golda Meir could make 'em all run up a tree."
    - Elaine, Jerry and George, in "The Outing"

    - Jerry to George, in "The Outing"

    - Jerry and George, in "The Contest"

    "Wait, wait wait... Whoa, whoa whoa-- what did you just say?"
    "I can't take it any more! She's drivin' me crazy. I can't sleep, I can't leave the house. When I'm here I'm climbin' the walls. Meanwhile I'm datin' a virgin, I'm in this contest... something's gotta give!"
    "Do you hear what you're saying? Can you hear it? This is a beautiful woman walking around naked, and you want to tell her to stop!? That's the *dumbest* thing I ever heard. I mean, it's incomprehens-- I'm not gonna let you do it!"
    "Well, I'm doin' it. Get out of my way..."
    "No, you can't! This is something that comes about once in a lifetime. When we were boys looking through our bedroom windows we would think, 'Why can't there be a woman out there taking her clothes off?' And now that wish has come true and you want to... pfffft... throw it away?!"
    - Kramer and Jerry, fighting over the woman across the street, in "The Contest"

  • The Trip
    "My personal acting technique is working with color. Imagining, then finding the emotional vibrational mood connected to the color. See, if you look through my scripts, you see that all my lines have a special color. So, I don't memorize language, I memorize colors. This way I can go through red, yellow, green, blue, and you have a full palette of emotions."
    - Kramer gives a lecture, in "The Trip"
     
    "I happen to dress based on mood."
    "But you essentially wear the same thing all the time."

    - Jerry, while he and George ride around in a "black & white", in "The Trip"
     
    "You know what I've never understood? Why did they change the siren noise? When I was a kid, it was always 'WAAAAAH WAAAAAH' and now it's 'WOO WOO WOO WOO WOO'. Why'd they do that? I mean, did they do some research? Did they find out that WOO-WOO was a more effective siren than WAAAH?"
    "Hey, and what about those English sirens? 'EEE YAAAH, EEE YAAAH, EEE YAAAH, EEE YAAAH'..."
    - George and Jerry, in "The Trip"
     
    "Hey, how'd you know about the guy in the park?"

    - George, in "The Subway"
     
    "What am I, made of money? You bunch of deadbeats!"

    "No, I mean, what does `ironic' mean?"
    - Elaine and woman on subway, in "The Subway"

    "Naked, dressed, I don't see any difference."
    "You ought to sit *here*. There's a difference."
    "You got something against a naked body?"
    "I got something against yours. How about a couple deep knee bends, maybe some squat thrusts."
    "Who's got time for squat thrusts?"
    "All right, how 'bout skippin' breakfast? I'm guessing you're not a half-grapefruit and black coffee man."
    "I like a good breakfast."
    "I understand, I like a good breakfast. As long as you don't wind up trapped in a room in bib overalls and pigtails being counseled by Dick Gregory."
    "I'm not ashamed of my body."

    "Aren't those the guys that always go crazy and come back with a gun and shoot everybody?"
    "Sometimes..."
    "Why is that?"
    "Because the mail never stops. It just keeps coming and coming and coming, there's never a let-up. It's relentless. Every day it piles up more and more and more! And you gotta get it out but the more you get it out the more it keeps coming in. And then the bar code reader breaks and it's Publisher's Clearing House day!"

    "What am I... hard of smelling?"
    - Elaine to Jerry, in "The Smelly Car"

    "I *loooove* horse manure."
    - Elaine, who would rather smell anything other than Jerry's car, in "The Smelly Car"

    - Jerry, in "The Smelly Car"

    - George, finding out that his former girlfriend is a lesbian, in "The Smelly Car"

    - George, in "The Kiss Hello"
     
    "I'm going on record right now, that was my last kiss hello. I am getting off the kiss program with her."

    - Jerry and Elaine, in "The Kiss Hello"
     
    "This is going to be my first opportunity to not kiss her hello."
    "What is the big deal about putting your lips on somebody's face?"

    "How about an intercourse hello? How would that be?"
    - Jerry and Elaine, in "The Kiss Hello"

    "Every time we go out to eat, the minute we're done she's running for the bathroom."

    - Kramer, in "The Switch"

    "How do you know?"

    "Are you even vaguely familiar with the concept of giving? There's no grace period."

    "Possibly."
    "Well, if he can re-gift, why can't you de-gift?"
    - Jerry and George, in "The Label Maker"
     
    "It's Risk. It's a game of world domination being played by two guys who can barely run their own lives."
    - Jerry, in "The Label Maker"
     
    "Jerry, I'm a little insulted."
    "You're not a little anything, Newman."
    - Newman and Jerry, in "The Label Maker"

    - Kramer and Elaine, in "The Scofflaw"

    "How come?"
    "Chicks, man. Too many chicks know my number."
    - Kramer and Jerry, in "The Pool Guy"
     
    "What else did you two do?"
    "Oh, you know, girly stuff."
    "So, uh, flower shows, shopping for pretty bows, then back to her place, strip down to bra and panties for a tickle fight."
    "That's really what you think girls do, isn't it?"
    "Yes, I do."
    - Jerry and Elaine, in "The Pool Guy"
     
    "You have no idea of the magnitude of this thing. If she is allowed to infiltrate this world then George Costanza as you know him ceases to exist. You see, right now I have Relationship George. But there is also Independent George. That's the George you know, the George you grew up with... Movie George, Coffee Shop George, Liar George, Bawdy George."
    "I love that George."
    "Me too, and he's dying. If Relationship George walks through this door, he will kill Independent George. A George divided against itself cannot stand!"

    - George and Jerry, in "The Gum"

    - George and Kramer, in "The Gum"
     
    "I think I finally figured out what the flavor is in this gum. It's a little lo-meiny."

    "Oh... and another piece of the puzzle falls into place."
    - Jerry and Elaine, in "The Strike"
    "H&H wouldn't let us use their bathroom while we were picketing. It put a cramp in our solidarity."
    - Kramer, in "The Strike"
     
    "Why didn't you ever mention this?"
    "Jerry, I didn't want you to know I was out of work. It's embarrassing."
    - Jerry and Kramer, in "The Strike"
     
    "So, attractive one day, not attractive the next."
    "Have you come across this?"
    "Yes, I am familiar with this syndrome. She's a two-face."

    - Frank Costanza and Kramer, in "The Strike"
    "At the Festivus dinner, you gather your family around and tell them all the ways they have disappointed you over the past year."
    "And is there a tree?"
    "No. Instead, there's a pole. Requires no decoration. I find tinsel distracting."

    - George and Jerry, in "The Secret Code"

The funny thing is, I would really love to tell someone because it's killing me. You want to know what it is? It's Bosco. You know, the chocolate syrup. I love that stuff. I pour it in milk. It's my favorite drink."
    - George, talking to Peterman's unconscious mother, in "The Secret Code"
     
    "I am not giving you my code."
    "I'll bet I can guess it."

Well, you're weak, spineless, a man of temptations. But what tempts you? You're a portly fellow. A bit long in the waistband. So what's your pleasure? Is it the salty snacks you crave? No no no no... Yours is a sweet tooth. Oh, you may stray, but you'll always return to your dark master... The cocoa bean! And only the purest syrup nectar can satisfy you. If you could, you'd guzzle it by the gallon... Ovaltine!? Hershey's!? Nestle's Quick!?"

    - Elaine, in "The Caddy"
     
    "It is all because of that car. See, Steinbrenner is like the first guy in at the crack of dawn. He sees my car, he figures I'm the first guy in. Then, the last person to leave is Wilhelm. He sees my car, he figures I'm burning the midnight oil. Between the two of them, they think I'm working an eighteen-hour day!"

    "Not as many as there used to be."
    - Kramer and Jerry, in "The Frogger"

    - Jerry, in "The Seven"
     
    "I defy you to come up with a better name than Seven."
    "Alright, let's see... How about Mug? Mug Costanza. That's original. Or Ketchup. Pretty name for a girl."

    "Wow... Joe Pepitone!"
    "Yeah, well, Joe Pepitone or not, I own the inside of that plate! So I throw one inside, a little chin music... put him right on his pants, because I got to intimidate when I'm on the mound. Well, the next pitch, he's right back in the same place! So.... I had to plunk him."
    "You plunked him?"
    "Oh yeah. Well, he throws down his bat, he comes racing up to the mound, next thing both benches are cleared, a brouhaha breaks out between the guys in camp and the old Yankee players, and as I'm trying to get Moose Skowron off one of my teammates, somebody pulls me from behind and I turned around and I *popped* him! I look down and, whoa man! It's Mickey! I punched his lights out! Then Hank Bauer's screaming 'Mickey! Mickey! What have you have done with Mickey?! You killed Mickey!'"
    "So what did you do?"
    "I got the hell outta there!"

    - Elaine and Babu's brother, in "The Visa"
     
    "It's mostly bills, magazines and junk mail, anyway."
    "Elaine, that's what mail *is*. Without bills, magazines
    and junk mail, there *is* no mail."
    - Elaine and Jerry, in "The Visa"
     
    "Toasting makes me uncomfortable. But toast I love. Never start the day without a good piece of toast. In fact, let's toast to toast."
    - George, trying to be witty, in "The Visa"
     
    "The turbo quadramatic transmission offers you the power and prestige to propel you well into the twenty-first century."
    - Elaine, imitating a snooty spokesmodel, in "The Visa"
     
    "Do you ever laugh?"
    "Not really. Sometimes when I'm in the tub..."

    "I'm a comedian."
    - Cheryl and Jerry, in "The Visa"
     
    "Nobody is sicker than me."
    - George, in "The Visa"
     
    "I am going to save up every rupee. For someday, I will get back to America, and when I do, I will exact vengeance on this man. I cannot forget it. He haunts me. He is a very bad man. Very, very bad man."
    - Babu, blaming Jerry for his deportation to Pakistan, in "The Visa"

    - Jerry and George, in "The Pothole"

    "As of today I am a proud parent of a one-mile stretch of the Arthur Berkhardt Expressway."
    - Kramer, in "The Pothole"

    - Kramer and Jerry, in "The Pothole"
     
    "You lost Phil Rizzuto's head?!"

    - Elaine, to the delivery boy, in "The Pothole"

    "By the time I'm through with her mouth, she'll be able to eat off it."
    - George and Jerry, in "The Pothole"
     
    "So now you're finding fault on a sub-atomic level."
    - Elaine, to Jerry, in "The Pothole"
     
    "Jerry, you have tendencies. They're always annoying, but they were just tendencies. But now, if you can't kiss this girl, I'm afraid we're talking disorder."
    "Disorder?"
    "And from disorder, you're a quirk or two away from full-on dementia."
    - Elaine and Jerry, in "The Pothole"

    "That stuff is unbelievable. I'd eat it out of a dumpster."

    "Hi. Jerry, can I borrow your car?"
    "For what?"

    "Dirt? That's alright, because there's nothing wrong with dirt."
    "Well, actually it's pretty grimy."
    "Grime, grease, filth, funk, ooze. Whatever it is, you take that stuff and put it right on my leather upholstery."
    "Well, I don't know who you are, but thanks for the car."
    - Elaine and Jerry, in "The Pothole"
  • The Wink
    "I'd rather be dating the blind. You know, you could let the house go. You could let yourself go. A good looking blind woman doesn't even know you're not good enough for her."

    - George and Elaine, in "The Wink"
     
    "Veggie sandwich and a grapefruit? What are you turning into?"

    - Jerry and Elaine, in "The Wink"

    "What kind of look?"
    "I know that look."
    "Then what was it?"

    "Trust me, I know the look."
    - Elaine and Jerry, in "The Deal"
     
    "I mean, really, what is the big deal? We go in there. We're in there for a while. We come right back out here. It's not complicated."

    "It's moronic."
    "Absurd!"
    - Jerry and Elaine, contemplating a new sexual relationship, in "The Deal"
     
    "Sometimes when people get involved with that, they feel pressure to sleep over. When that is not really sleep. Sleep is separate from that. And I don't see why sleep got all tied up and connected with that."
    - Jerry, in "The Deal"
     
    "I slept with Elaine last night."
    "Oxygen! I need some oxygen! This is major!"
    - Jerry and George, in "The Deal"
     
    "You ask me to have lunch, tell me you slept with Elaine, and then say you're not in the mood for details. Now you listen to me. I want details and I want them right now. I don't have a job, I have no place to go. You're not in the mood? Well you get in the mood!"
    - George, to Jerry, in "The Deal"
     
    "That's why I don't have cable in my house. Because of that naked station. If I had that in my house, I would never turn it off. I wouldn't sleep, I wouldn't eat. Eventually, firemen would have to break through the door. They'd find me sitting there in my pajamas with drool coming down my face."
    - George, in "The Deal"
     
    "It pains me to say this, but I may be getting too mature for details."
    - Jerry, in "The Deal"
     
    "Where are you living? Are you here? Are you on this planet? It's impossible. It can't be done. Thousands of years people have been trying to have their cake and eat it too. So all of a sudden the two of you are going to come along and do it. Where do you get the ego? No one can do it. It can't be done."
    - George, to Jerry, in "The Deal"
     
    "I know less about women than anyone in the world. But one thing I do know is they're not happy if you don't spend the night. It could be a hot, sweaty room with no air conditioning and all they have is a little army cot this wide... You're not going anywhere."
    - George, in "The Deal"
     
    "I'm in a very delicate position. Whatever I give her, she's going to be bringing in experts from all over the country to interpret the meaning behind it."

    "What about candle holders?"
    "Too romantic."

    - Elaine, to Jerry after he gives her cash for her birthday, in "The Deal"
     
    "No this. No that. No this or that. Oh boy, what do you want?"
    "This, that, and the other."
    "Oh, sure. Of course, you're entitled. Who doesn't want this, that, and the other?"
    "You."
    - Jerry and Elaine, in "The Deal"
     
    "What is it about sex that just disrupts everything? Is it the touching? Is it the nudity?"
    "It can't be the nudity. I never got into these terrible fights and misunderstandings when I was changing before gym class."
    - George and Jerry, in "The Deal"
  • The Ticket
    "Yo-Yo Ma!"
    - Kramer, suffering the ill effects of a kick to the head, in "The Ticket"

    "It's not the money."
    "Well, what is it you object to? The comfort? The speed? The convenience?"
    - George and Jerry, in "The Ticket"
    "You wouldn't be here 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!"
    - Newman, to Kramer, in "The Ticket"
     
    "Why didn't you shave this morning?"
    "Because I shaved yesterday in the afternoon."
    "Why?"
    "Because of the day before. It's a long story."
    - Jerry and George, in "The Ticket"
     
    "I was never able to become a banker."
    - Kramer, inventing a story with Newman, in "The Ticket"
     
    "The story is the foundation of all entertainment. You must have a good story otherwise it's just masturbation."
    - George, in "The Ticket"
     
    "That's good judgment. That's a pile of judgment there."
    - George, in "The Ticket"
     
    "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."
    - Newman, in "The Ticket"
     
    "I can't live knowing Ted Danson makes that much more than me. Who is he?"
    "He's somebody."
    "What about me?"
    "You're nobody."
    "Why him? Why not me?"
    "He's good, you're not."
    "I'm better than him."
    "You're worse, much much worse."
    - George and Jerry, in "The Ticket"

    - Jerry, in "The Ticket"
  • The Ex Girlfriend
    "Look, do I have to break up with her in person? Can't I do it over the phone? I have no stomach for these things."
    "You should just do it like a Band-Aid. One motion, right off!"
    - George and Jerry, in "The Ex-Girlfriend"
     
    "A relationship is an organism. You created this thing and then you starved it, so it turned against you. Same thing happened to the Blob."
    - Jerry, in "The Ex-Girlfriend"
     
    "I only eat cantaloupe at certain times."
    - Jerry, in "The Ex-Girlfriend"
     
    "I don't return fruit. Fruit is a gamble. I know that going in."
    - Jerry, in "The Ex-Girlfriend"
     
    "It's like I was making a prison break, you know. And I'm heading for the wall, and I trip and I twist my ankle, and they throw the light on you, you know. So, somehow I get through the crying and I keep running. Then the cursing started. She's firing at me from the guard tower: 'Son of a bang! Son of a boom!' I get to the top of the wall, the front door. I opened it up, I'm one foot away. I took one last look around the penitentiary, and I jumped!"
    - George, describing his break-up to Jerry, in "The Ex-Girlfriend"
     
    "What is this obsession people have with books? They put them in their houses like they're trophies. What do you need it for after you read it?"
    - Jerry, in "The Ex-Girlfriend"
     
    "I hate the little room."
    - George, at the doctor's office, in "The Ex-Girlfriend"

    - Jerry, in "The Ex-Girlfriend"
     
    "I think I swallowed a fly! I swallowed a fly! What do I do? What can happen?"
    - George, in "The Ex-Girlfriend"
     
    "I guess things changed for me on Tuesday night."
    "Tuesday night? What happened Tuesday night?"
    "I saw your act."
    "My act? What does that have to do with anything?"
    "Well, to be honest, it just didn't make it for me. It's just so much fluff."
    "I can't believe this. So what are you saying? You didn't like my act, so that's it?"
    "I can't be with someone if I don't respect what they do."
    "You're a cashier!"
    "Look, Jerry, it's just not my kind of humor."
    "You can't go by the audience that night. It was late. They were terrible."
    "I heard the material."
    "I have other stuff. You should come see me on the weekend."
    - Marlene and Jerry, in "The Ex-Girlfriend"
