Seinfeld - George Quote #144
Jerry: Elaine is having a... "houseguest." She's picking him up at the airport tonight.
George: A guy?
Elaine: Yes, a guy.
Jerry: He's from Yakima, right?
Jerry: Everybody's moving to Seattle.
George: It's the pesto of cities.
Quote from Jerry
Jerry: I'm not a foodie. I don't... "Oh, this is too rare. Oh, it's too salty." Just eat it and shut up. I'll eat anywhere, whatever they're having. I have eaten rotten rolls off of room service trays in hotel hallways. I have. It's not a joke. This is my life. I don't know, somebody left it. Why would someone poison a roll, and leave it in a hallway for some comic coming down at two o' clock in the morning? Why would they do that? Sometimes you go to a nice restaurant, they put the check in a little book. What is this? The story of the bill? "Once upon a time, there were some very hungry people..." What is this? A little gold tassle hanging down? Am I graduating from the restaurant? What is this about?
Quote from George
Jerry: Anywhere in the city?
George: Anywhere in the city, I'll tell you the best public toilet.
Jerry: Okay. Fifty-fourth and Sixth?
George: Sperry-Rand Building. 14th floor, Morgan Apparel. Mention my name. She'll give you the key.
Jerry: All right. Sixty-fifth and Tenth.
George: [scoffs] Are you kidding? Lincoln Center. Alice Tully Hall, the Met. Magnificent facilities.
Quote from Jerry
Jerry: Flying doesn't make me nervous. Driving to the airport can make you very nervous because when you're flying, when you're getting on the plane, if you miss that plane, there's no alternative. On the ground, you have options. You have buses, you have taxis, you have trains. But, when you're taking a flight, if you miss it, that's it. No airline goes, "Well, you missed the flight, we do have a cannon leaving in about ten minutes. Would you be interested in that? It's not a direct cannon, you have to change cannons after you land." "I'm sorry, where you goin'? Chicago? [turns the cannon] Oh, Dallas? All right, wait a second... [turns the cannon] Dallas. That's about Dallas. Texas, anyway. You should hit Texas. Are you ready? Make sure you get out of the net immediately, because we shoot the luggage in right after you."
Quote from The Kiss Hello
George: I still don't see why I can't ask her about my arm.
Elaine: She's a physical therapist. She doesn't want to have to deal with that outside of the office.
George: Why not?
Elaine: Because it is what she does.
George: I love these people! You can't ask them questions. They're so mentally gifted that we mustn't disturb the delicate genius unless it's in the confines of an office! When huge sums of money are involved, then the delicate genius can be disturbed!
Elaine: George, you got a little something, right here.
George: [wiping face] These people think they're so important!
Quote from The Susie
[George is eating popcorn as he watches TV. He doesn't break his concentration as his phone rings and his answering machine picks up]
George: [on answer phone, to tune of "The Greatest American Hero"] Believe it or not George isn't at home Please leave a message At the beep I must be out Or I'd pick up the phone Where could I be? Believe it or not, I'm not home.
Quote from The Bubble Boy
Donald: [o.s.] Okay, history. This is for the game. How you doing over there? Not too good.
George: All right, bubble boy. Let's just play. "Who invaded Spain in the 8th century?"
Donald: That's a joke. The Moors.
George: Oh, no. I'm so sorry. It's the "Moops". The correct answer is, the "Moops".
Donald: Moops? Let me see that. [takes card with gloved hand] That's not Moops, you jerk. That's Moors. It's a misprint.
George: I'm sorry. The card says Moops.
Donald: It doesn't matter. It's Moors. There's no Moops.
George: It's Moops.
