Seinfeld: The Postponement

702. The Postponement

Aired September 28, 1995

George gets cold feet and wants to postpone his wedding to Susan. Elaine resents the fact George is getting married before her.

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.

Quote from Kramer

Jerry: Sorry about that movie-thing. I was joking around.
Kramer: Sorry? Are you kidding? You did me the biggest favor of my life. I spoke to a lawyer, we're suing for millions.
Jerry: Suing? What for?
Kramer: The coffee was too hot.
Jerry: It's supposed to be hot.
Kramer: Not that hot.

Quote from Kramer

Jerry: Hey, Kramer if I killed somebody would you turn me in?
Kramer: Definitely.
Jerry: You're kidding?
Kramer: No, no, I would turn you in.
Jerry: You would turn me in?
Kramer: I wouldn't even think about it.
Jerry: I can't believe your a friend of mine.
Kramer: What kind of person are you going around killing people?
Jerry: Well, I am sure I had a good reason.
Kramer: Well, if you'll kill this person, who's to say I wouldn't be next?
Jerry: But you know me!
Kramer: I thought I did!

Quote from Kramer

Kramer: Hey, Elaine, listen, I was talking to a friend about this dog business. Do you realize this is gonna be on our permanent records? Are you aware of this?
Elaine: Oh, dear.
Kramer: It can never be erased. It'll follow us wherever we go for the rest of our lives. I'll never be able to get a job. I mean, doesn't that concern you? Everything I've worked for, down the drain because of one stupid mistake. I mean, aren't we entitled to make one mistake in our lives, Jerry?
Jerry: We gotta change the system.
Kramer: Yes!
Elaine: Well, I could care less. I hope it is on our record. I'm just sorry they didn't lock me up.

Quote from George

George: I want your honest opinion about something.
Jerry: Have I ever been less than forthright?
George: No, you haven't. Well, maybe you have. What do I know.
Jerry: Yeah, I probably have. Yeah, of course I have. What am I talking about?
George: All right. Okay, tell me what you think about this idea. Extend the doors on the toilet stalls at Yankee Stadium all the way to the floor.
Jerry: Extend the doors on the toilet stalls at Yankee Stadium to the floor? Door comes down, hides your feet. Yes. I like it. I like it a lot.
George: It's good, right?
Jerry: I think it's fantastic. I think it's a fantastic idea.

Quote from Kramer

Jerry: Look at this, Jerry. Dropping paper on the ground. That's littering.
Jerry: Maybe you better call the cops and turn me in.
Kramer: Maybe I will.

Quote from George

George: Oh! Oh, I had an unbelievable idea today.
Susan Ross: Oh, yeah, the toilets. You told me.
George: Yeah, no, it's not the toilets. It's not the toilets. It's something else. Are you ready for this?
Susan Ross: Yeah.
George: Okay, how about this? All right, we get married March 21st, the first day of Spring.
Susan Ross: What do you mean? You want to postpone the wedding?
George: No, no, no. It's nothing to do with postponing. I just think the first day of Spring is the perfect day to get married. You know, Spring! Rejuvenation! Rebirth! Everything is blooming all the …

Quote from Elaine

Elaine: Oh, hello, Rabbi Krischma.
Rabbi: [stilted] Elaine. Always a pleasure to see you.
Elaine: Thanks again for taking care of that dog for us.
Rabbi: Elaine, often times in life there are problems, and just as often there are solutions.
Elaine: Yeah, I suppose.
Rabbi: Elaine, you don't seem yourself today. You seem, if I may say, troubled.
Elaine: No, Rabbi, I'm not myself.
Rabbi: Come upstairs. We'll have a talk.
