Quote from George

Doctor: Mr. Costanza, your legs have sustained extensive trauma. Apparently, your body was in the state of advanced atrophy, due to a period of extreme inactivity. But with a lot of hard work and a little bit of luck, I think there's a good chance you may, one day, walk again. [leaves]

Kramer: Yeah, that's weird.
Elaine: All right. Well... Do you want to grab some coffee?
Jerry: Yeah.

George: Decompressing.

George: I'm gonna play Frolf.
Jerry: You mean golf?

Elaine: You're going to the Tony's too?
Kramer: Roger that.
Jerry: Where are you sitting?
Kramer: Well, all over the place. Yeah, I'm a seat filler. They don't like to see empty seats on TV so when somebody gets up I just park my caboose on their spot until they get back.
Elaine: How did you get that job?
Kramer: Mickey. Mickey, he hooked me up. He's a member of the academy.
Jerry: What academy?
Kramer: Well, he didn't say.

Quote from Elaine

Sam: Elaine, am I crazy? I just get the feeling that Dugan and the others are making fun of me all the time.
Elaine: Well, You might wanna think about... maybe, uh... moving your arms a little when you walk.
Sam: My arms?
Elaine: You know, sort of swing them, so you're not lurching around like a caveman. [laughs]
Sam: I'm a caveman?
Elaine: No, no, no, no, it's just...
Sam: Everybody told what a catty shrew you are. Your horrible! [runs out with her arms firmly by her side]
