Elaine Quote #275

Quote from Elaine in The Pilot

Elaine: Look, Russell, you're a very sweet guy. But I got to be honest with you. I don't like television. And that's your world. That's your life. I mean maybe if you were in... I don't know... Greenpeace or something, that would be different, but network television... Come on, Russell, you're part of the problem.
Russell: Oh Elaine, we're doing some really very interesting things right now. We've got some very exciting pilots for next season. We have one with a bright young comedian, Jerry Seinfeld.
Elaine: Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. I've heard of him. He's that "Did you ever notice this? Did you ever notice that?" guy.

Quote from George

George: [on the phone] This is George Costanza, I'm calling for my test results. Negative? Oh, my God. Why?! Why?! Why?! What? What? Negative is good? [cheers up] Oh, yes of course! How stupid of me. Thank you. Thank you very much. [hangs up]

Quote from Jerry

Jerry: To me, the whole concept of fear of success is proof that we are definitely scraping the bottom of the fear barrel. Are we gonna have to have AA-type meetings for these people? They'll go: "Hi, my name is Bill, and the one thing I'm worried about is having a stereo and a cream-colored couch." According to most studies, people's number-one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two! Now, this means to the average person, if you have to go to a funeral, you're better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.

Quote from The Muffin Tops

Woman: I can't believe somebody pulled the top off of this muffin.
Elaine: That was me. I'm sorry. I don't like the stumps.
Mr. Lippman: So you just eat the tops?
Elaine: Oh, yeah. It's the best part. It's crunchy. It's explosive. It's where the muffin breaks free of the pan and sort of does its own thing. I'll tell you. That's a million dollar idea right there. Just sell the tops.

Quote from The Andrea Doria

George: The tenant association made me give it to this guy because he was an Andrea Doria survivor.
