George Quote #906

Quote from George in The Mom & Pop Store

Jerry: I thought Consumer said Volvo was the car.
George: What Consumer? I'm the consumer.
Jerry: All right. Seems like a strange choice.
George: Well, maybe so. But it was good enough for Mr. Jon Voight.
Elaine: Jon Voight? The actor?
George: That's right. He just happened to be the previous owner of the vehicle.
Jerry: You bought a car because it belonged to Jon Voight?
George: No, no...
Jerry: I think yes, yes. You like the idea of telling people you're driving Jon Voight's car.
George: All right, maybe I do. So what.
Elaine: I've never even seen him in a car. I mean, look at his movies. No cars. Deliverance, canoe. Midnight Cowboy, boots. Runaway Train, runaway train.

Quote from Kramer

Kramer: Jerry, you know that shoe repair place at the end of the block? Well, if they don't get some business, they're gonna have to shut down and make way for one of those gourmet coffee or cookie stores.
Elaine: I like coffee.
George: I like [imitates Kramer] "cookies."
Kramer: Yeah, of course you do. And do you know why? Because you're a bunch of yuppies. It's your go-go corporate takeover lifestyles that are driving out these Mom and Pop stores and destroying the fabric of this neighborhood.
George: Well, what's so great about a Mom and Pop store? Let me tell you something. If my Mom and Pop ran a store, I wouldn't shop there.
Kramer: Hey, Bogambo. They've been in the neighborhood for 48 years.

Quote from Kramer

Jerry: Hey, so where's my sneakers?
Kramer: That's what I wanna know.
Jerry: What do you mean?
Kramer: Well, I saw Mom and Pop this morning, but when I went by the store on my way home? The place was empty. Everything is gone. Mom and Pop... vanished.
Jerry: So all my sneakers are gone?
Kramer: I'm afraid so. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. I've been asking around. They didn't even have any kids.
Jerry: Mom and Pop aren't even a Mom and Pop?!
Kramer: It was all an act, Jerry. They conned us, and they scored, big time.
Elaine: So. Mom and Pop's plan was to move into the neighborhood, establish trust for 48 years. And then, run off with Jerry's sneakers.
Kramer: Apparently.

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 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.
