Elaine Quote #367

Quote from Elaine in The Pie

Elaine: Excuse me. Where did this come from?
Saleswoman: I don't know.
George: You really think this looks okay on me?
Saleswoman: Fabulous. Perfect fit. And it's the last one we have.
Elaine: I'm sorry. You can't tell me where the mannequin came from?
Saleswoman: I told you, I don't know.
Elaine: Well, um, is there somebody around here I could talk to who would know?
Saleswoman: Why?
Elaine: Isn't it obvious? This mannequin looks exactly like me.
[The saleswoman rolls her eyes at George about Elaine]
Elaine: 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.
Saleswoman: I think maybe you're flattering yourself. That mannequin is wearing a $1,200 Gaultier dress.
Elaine: What are you saying, that I'm not good enough for this hideous dress? Listen, Natasha... I wouldn't be caught dead wearing your crummy little euro-trash rags.

Quote from Elaine

Quote from Jerry

Jerry: Aren't mannequins kind of an insult to your imagination? You couldn't possibly visualize a sweater, so we'll show you on this life-size, snotty puppet. I guess when they're finished with them, they become crash-test dummies. That's the end of the line for a mannequin. "Whatever happened to Bob?" "Have you seen that new Volvo commercial? He's got a bullseye right on his face." Mannequins are only used for car accidents and fashion. I guess these are the two situations that it's impossible for us to imagine ourselves: Well-dressed or getting killed. I'm sure there's some pro-mannequin organization that doesn't even like you to use the term mannequin. "Hey, they're not mannequins. They're the life-deprived."

Quote from Jerry

George: Maybe you said something that offended her.
Jerry: The only thing I can think of is I told her we should have those moving walkways all over the city.
George: Like at the airport?
Jerry: Yeah.
George: That's a great idea!
Jerry: Tell me about it!
George: We could be zipping all over the place.
Jerry: They could at least try it.
George: They never try anything.
Jerry: What's the harm?
George: No harm!
