‘The Caddy’

Season 7, Episode 12 -  Aired January 25, 1996

George gives the impression he's working 'round the clock when he locks his car keys in his car at the stadium. Meanwhile, Elaine is disturbed by her friend, Sue Ellen (Brenda Strong), who doesn't wear a bra.

Quote from Jackie Chiles

Kramer: Well, the we saw this woman, and she was wearing a bra with no top.
Jackie Chiles: No top? She didn't have a top on?
Kramer: No. So I got distracted and I crashed the car.
Jackie Chiles: Well, how would you describe this woman? Would you say she was an attractive woman?
Kramer: Oh, yeah.
Jackie Chiles: So we got an attractive woman, wearing a bra, no top, walking around in broad daylight. She's flouting society's conventions!
Kramer: She was flouting.
Jackie Chiles: That's totally inappropriate. It's lewd, lascivious, salacious, outrageous!
Kramer: It was outrageous.


Quote from Jackie Chiles

Kramer: And she's the heir to the O'Henry candy bar fortune.
Jackie Chiles: Could you repeat that?
Kramer: I said she's the heir to the O'Henry candy bar fortune.
Jackie Chiles: O'Henry? That's one of our top-selling candy bars. It's got chocolate, peanuts, nougat. It's delicious, scrumptious, outstanding! Have you been to a doctor?
Kramer: No.
Jackie Chiles: [over intercom] Susie, call Dr. Bison, set up an appointment for Mr. Kramer. Tell him it's for me.
Kramer: So what do you think, Jackie? I mean we got a case?
Jackie Chiles: Like taking candy from a baby.

Quote from George

George: Assistant to the General Manager! You know what means? He'd could be asking my advice on trades. Trades, Jerry. I'm a heartbeat away!
Jerry: That's a hell of an organization they're running up there. I can't understand why they haven't won a pennant in 15 years.
George: And it is all because of that car. You see, Steinbrenner is like the first guy in, at the crack of dawn. He sees my car, he figures I'm the first guy in. Then, the last person to leave is Wilhelm. He see my car, he figures I'm burning the midnight oil. Between the two of them, they think I'm working an 18 hour day!
Jerry: Locking your keys in your car is the best career move you ever made.

Quote from Mr. Steinbrenner

George: Anyway, as I was lying in the puddle, I think I may have found a way for us to get Bonds and Griffey, and we wouldn't have to give up that much.
Mr. Steinbrenner: Well, don't tell it to me George, tell it to the new Assistant to the General Manager.
George: I didn't get the job?
Mr. Steinbrenner: Well, once you were dead, we couldn't just sit on our hands. We had to make a move...
[A dejected George turns to leave, no longer walking with the aid of the crutches. He takes the bandage off his head and closes the door.]
Mr. Steinbrenner: But, you still have your old job. Of course, we'll have to dock you for the time you missed. We're running a ball club here. If I give special treatment to you, everyone will want it. Next thing you know its chaos! And I can tell you this, chaos does not work for the New York Yankees! Not as long as I'm running the show!

Quote from Jackie Chiles

Jackie Chiles: Your honor, we request at this time, that Miss Mishke try on the bra.
Judge: This court will come to order. Go ahead, Miss Mishke, try it on.
[Sue Ellen attempts to put the bra on over her top, but it's too small]
Sue Ellen: It doesn't fit. I can't put it on.
Jackie Chiles: [to Kramer and Stan] Damn fools! Look at that! We got nothing now! Nothing! I've been practicing law for 25 years, you're listening to a caddy! This is a public humiliation! You can't let the defendant have control of the key piece of evidence. Plus, she's trying it on over a leotard. Of course a bra's not gonna fit on over a leotard. A bra gotta fit right up a person's skin. Like a glove!

Quote from Estelle Costanza

Mr. Steinbrenner: [knocks] Mrs. Costanza?
Estelle Costanza: Yes?
Mr. Steinbrenner: My name is George Steinbrenner, I'm afraid I have some very sad new about your son.
[cut to the Costanza's living room:]
Estelle Costanza: I can't believe it, he was so young. How could this have happened?
Mr. Steinbrenner: Well, he'd been logging some pretty heavy hours, first one in in the morning, last one to leave at night. That kid was a human dynamo.
Estelle Costanza: Are you sure you're talking about George?
Mr. Steinbrenner: You are Mr. and Mrs. Costanza?

Quote from Frank Costanza

Frank Costanza: [on Jerry's answering machine] Jerry, it's Frank Costanza. Mr. Steinbrenner is here, George is dead, call me back!

Quote from Elaine

Elaine: Was it a tall woman, in a black blazer?
Jerry: Yeah!
Elaine: [gasps] That's Sue Ellen Mishke!
Jerry: Sue Ellen Mishke?
Elaine: That's the bra I gave here. She's wearing it as a top! A woman is walking around in broad daylight with nothing but a bra on. She's a menace to society.

Quote from Mr. Steinbrenner

Mr. Steinbrenner: Come in! [Wilhelm enters] Ah, Wilhelm.
Wilhelm: Mr. Steinbrenner, I am very concerned about George Costanza.
Mr. Steinbrenner: How about a "good morning"?
Wilhelm: Yes, sir. Good morning. Good morning, sir.
Mr. Steinbrenner: Good morning to you, Wilhelm.
Wilhelm: Anyway, his car's in the parking lot. The front end is bashed in, and there's blood in the car, and we can't find him anywhere. Obviously, he was in some sort of terrible car accident, and, trooper
that he is, he tried to make it into work, sir.
Mr. Steinbrenner: All right, Wilhelm, listen to me. I want the stadium scoured. He could be bleeding to death in the bullpen. Put everyone on alert. Check all the area hospitals, clinics, shelters. We've gotta find that kid.
Wilhelm: Yes, sir. Yes, sir.
Mr. Steinbrenner: We must find George. Find him, Wilhelm!

Quote from Mr. Steinbrenner

Mr. Steinbrenner: What is with these people, all day long. Come in, come in.
Wilhelm: Mr. Steinbrenner, you know, we've searched everywhere. There's no sign of him. Not even anyone who remotely fits his description, sir.
Mr. Steinbrenner: Oh my God, do you know what this means, Wilhelm?
Wilhelm: What, sir?
Mr. Steinbrenner: He's dead! Costanza's dead!
Wilhelm: Well, no, no, sir. You see, I don't think-
Mr. Steinbrenner: Oh, as quickly as he came here, he's gone. The poor little guy! Easy. Easy, big Stein, get it together. Okay, Wilhelm.
Wilhelm: Yes, sir?
Mr. Steinbrenner: Find out where his parents live.
Wilhelm: Parents.
Mr. Steinbrenner: I'm gonna personally notify them. And, uh, line up some candidates to fill that assistant to the General Manager position. We can't grieve forever! We gotta get back to business! Back to business, Wilhelm!
