Jerry Quote #149

Quote from Jerry in The Revenge

[stand-up:]
Jerry: Whenever I see the news and they're hauling in some criminal, terrorist, psycho, maniac, mass-murder guy. You ever notice he's always covering up his face with the newspaper, with the jacket, with the hat? What is he worried about? I mean, what is this man's reputation that he has to worry about this kind of exposure damaging his good name? I mean, what, what is he up for a big job promotion down at the office or something? Afraid the boss is going to catch this on TV and go, "Isn't that Johnson from sales? He's up in the clock tower, picking people off one by one. I don't know if that's the kind of man we want heading up that new branch office. He should be in bill collection. I think he's got aptitude."

Quote from Jerry

[stand-up:]
Jerry: People like the idea of revenge. You ever hear the expression, "The best revenge is living well"? I've said this.

Quote from Jerry

[stand-up:]
Jerry: To me, the most annoying thing about the couple of times that I did work in an office, is that when you go in on a morning, you say "hi" to everyone, and then, for some reason, throughout the day, you have to continue to greet these people all day, every time you see them. I mean, you walk in on the morning, "Morning, BIll." "Morning, Bob." "How you doing?" "Fine." Ten minutes later, you see them in the hall, "Hey. How you doing?" Every time you pass, you got to come up with a little greeting. You know, you start racking your brains. You know, you do the little eyebrow. You start coming up with nicknames for them, you know, "Jimbo."

George: Come on. Will you stop it.
Levitan: No brains? No ability?
George: Teasing.
Levitan: Okay. I want you outta here.
George: I don't know where you're getting this from. I... You're serious aren't you? Oh, [laughing] you see? You just don't know my sense of humor. I mean, Dan, don't I joke around all the time?
Dan: I wouldn't say all the time.
Levitan: You can't win. You can't beat me. That's why I'm here and you're there. Because I'm a winner. I'll always be a winner and you'll always be a loser.
