Quote from George

George: I didn't even know Fulton was in the hospital.
Jerry: Could use a good laugh. You know what kind of pressure that is? Come on, come with me.
George: Nah, no. I'm not good in these situations. I can't hide my pity. I.. I make 'em feel worse.
Jerry: Oh, stop it.
George: Yeah. And also, I'm afraid that people in that state are finally going to tell me what they really think of me. You know, they got nothing to lose. What do they care?

Quote from Jerry

[stand-up:]
Jerry: The bus is the single stupidest, fattest, slowest, most despised vehicle on the road. Isn't it? You ever notice when you get behind the bus, people in your car go, "What are you doing? Get away, come on." The back of the bus is like an eclipse, isn't it? People are just like, "The sun! Where's the sun?" It's like this huge metal ass taking up the whole wind shield of your car. When it pulls out, it even sounds like a fat uncle trying to get out of a sofa.

Jerry: It's not good.

George: No. Lunch we read. Dinner we read.
Jerry: You read during lunch?
George: Yeah.
Jerry: Oh, well.
George: There's nothing to talk about.
Jerry: Yeah, what's there to talk about.
George: Well, at least you and I are talking about how there's nothing to talk about.
Jerry: Why don't you talk to her about how there's nothing to talk about?
George: She knows there is nothing to talk about.
Jerry: At least you'll be talking.
George: Oh, shut up.

Quote from George

George: I was just about to break up with her when she told me.

Elaine: So now you're going to keep going out with her, for spite?
George: Yes, I am.
Jerry: Yeah, I could see that.
George: I don't see any way around it.
Jerry: No, me either.
George: What choice do I have?

Quote from Kramer

Jerry: Fulton's wife told me it's all my fault. She said since my visit, he's taken a turn for the worse.
Kramer: Did you tell him the Pachyderm story?
Jerry: Yes, I told him the Pachyderm story!
Kramer: Maybe I outta go over there.
Jerry: Towards what end?

Quote from Kramer

Kramer: Hey, how was your date with Phil Titola?
Elaine: He took it out.
[Kramer reacts instantaneously with a powerful shudder]
Kramer: Well, maybe, uh, it needed some air. You know, sometimes they need air, they can't breathe in there. It's inhuman.
