Elaine Quote #548
Rabbi: You know, Elaine, very often we cannot see the forest for the trees.
Elaine: Yeah, I don't know what that means.
Rabbi: Well, for example, say there's a forest, . . .
Elaine: Yeah, see the thing is, Rabbi. It should have been me. You know, I'm smart. I'm attractive.
Rabbi: You know my temple has many single functions.
Elaine: Oh, no, that's okay.
Rabbi: My nephew Alex is someone who is also looking perhaps...
Elaine: I don't think so.
Rabbi: He owns a flower store. Very successful.
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 Glasses
Elaine: I've got such a headache. Oh, that's another symptom!
Kramer: Of what?
Kramer: Oh, that's fatal. You don't want that!
Elaine: [grabs Kramer] I know I don't want it! I don't need you to tell me what I don't want, you stupid hipster dufus!
Quote from The Andrea Doria
George: The tenant association made me give it to this guy because he was an Andrea Doria survivor.
Elaine: Andrea Doria? Isn't that the one they did the song about?
Jerry: Edmund Fitzgerald.
Elaine: I love Edmund Fitzgerald's voice.
Jerry: No, Gordon Lightfoot was the singer. Edmund Fitzgerald was the ship.
George: You could fit 15 people in that bathroom..
Elaine: I think Gordon Lightfoot was the boat.
Jerry: Yeah, and it was rammed by the Cat Stevens.
Quote from George
George: I will never understand the bathrooms in this country. Why is it that the doors on the stalls do not come all the way down to the floor?
Susan Ross: Well, maybe it's so you can see if there's someone in there.
George: Isn't that why we have locks on the doors?
Susan Ross: Well, as a backup system, in case the lock is broken, you can see if it's taken.
George: A backup system? We're designing bathroom doors with our legs exposed in anticipation of the locks not working? [snorts] That's not a system. That's a complete breakdown of the system.
Quote from Kramer
Jerry: Another caffe latte?
Kramer: Hey, you better believe it.
Jerry: Since when are you so trendy?
Jerry: Hey, baby. I set the trends. Who do you think started this whole caffe latte?
Jerry: I don't recall you drinking caffe lattes.
Kramer: I've been drinking caffe latte since the fifth grade and I haven't looked back.
Quote from George
Susan Ross: Can we change the subject, please?
George: Why? What's wrong with the subject? This is a bad subject?
Susan Ross: No, fine. If you wanna keep talking about it, we'll talk about it.
George: It's not that I want to keep talking about it? I just think that the subject should resolve itself based on its own momentum.
Susan Ross: Well, I didn't think that it had any momentum.
George: [inner monologue] How am I gonna do this? I'm engaged to this woman? She doesn't even like me. Change the subject? Toilets were the subject. We don't even share the same interests.
