David Puddy: Well, let's see, I've got a ten kroner, a five kroner, a twenty kroner. No wait, that's another ten kroner. A "femti" kroner? How much is that?
Elaine: We have to break up.
David Puddy: What?
Elaine: I can't take this anymore! I don't want to hear how interesting the change with the hole in it is. And if you tell me what time it is in New York again, you are going home in a body bag!

Elaine: Did you read the whole thing?
Kramer: Oh, yeah.
Elaine: Yeah? So, what's it about?

Elaine: Unbridled enthusiasm?
Kramer: That's what led to Billy Mumphrey's downfall.
Elaine: Oh, boy.

Elaine: Oh, my God.

Kramer: What did I just say?

Quote from Kramer in The Letter

[A wealthy, elderly couple admire Nina's painting of Kramer:]
Mrs. Armstrong: I sense great vulnerability. A man-child crying out for love. An innocent orphan in the post-modern world.
Mr. Armstrong: I see a parasite. A sexually-depraved miscreant, who is seeking to gratify basest and most immediate urges.
Mrs. Armstrong: His struggle is man's struggle. He lifts my spirit.
Mr. Armstrong: He is a loathsome, offensive brute. Yet I can't look away.
Mrs. Armstrong: He transcends time and space.
Mr. Armstrong: He sickens me.
Mrs. Armstrong: I love it.
Mr. Armstrong: Me too.

Quote from Kramer in The Visa

Jerry: What happened?
Kramer: I punched Mickey Mantle in the mouth.
Jerry: What?

Elaine: You punched who in the mouth?
Kramer: Mickey Mantle.
Jerry: What happened?
Kramer: Well, you know, we were playing a game and, you know, I was pitching, and I was really throwing some smoke. And Joe Pepitone, he was up, and man that guy, you know, he was crowding the plate.
Jerry: Wow! Joe Pepitone!
Kramer: Yeah, well, Joe Pepitone or not, I own the inside of that plate. So I throw one, you know, inside, you know, a little chin music, put him right on his pants. 'cause I gotta intimidate when I'm on the mound. Well, the next pitch, he's right back in the same place. So, I had to plunk him.
Jerry: You plunked him.
Kramer: Oh yeah. Well, he throws down his bat, he comes racing up to the mound. Next thing, both benches are cleared, you know? A brouhaha breaks out between the guys in the camp, you know, and the old Yankee players. And as I'm trying to get Moose Skowron off of one of my teammates, you know, somebody pulls
me from behind, you know, and I turned around and I popped him. I looked down, and whoa man, it's Mickey. I punched his lights out.
Jerry: Wow, this is incredible!

Quote from Jerry in The Dinner Party

Elaine: What's this one?
Clerk: That's Cinnamon babka.
Jerry: Another babka?
Clerk: There's chocolate and there's cinnamon.
Jerry: Well, we've got to get the cinnamon.
Elaine: No, but they got the chocolate. We'll be going in with lesser babka.
Jerry: I beg your pardon? Cinnamon takes a back seat to no babka. People love cinnamon. It should be on tables at restaurants along with salt and pepper. Anytime anyone says, "Oh, this is so good. What's in it?" The answer invariably comes back, cinnamon. Cinnamon, again and again. Lesser babka? I think not.

Quote from Elaine in The Chaperone

Mr. Pitt: The resemblance is uncanny. [Elaine has a sour expression on her face as she drinks through a straw] Even the brown eyes.

Mr. Pitt: Grace, yes.
Elaine: You think I have grace?

Elaine: Just some?
Mr. Pitt: Well, you don't want too much grace or you won't be able to stand.
Elaine: [laughs] Oh, Mr. Pitt.

Jerry: Kramer, this is awful. We don't want to hear about this.
Kramer: Damn!
Jerry: What?

George: Of course I'm not Cartwright!

Quote from Jerry in The Mom & Pop Store

Jerry: Car names are so stupid, aren't they? Like, no baron has ever owned a LeBaron. Or the Ford LTD. "LTD." Limited. It's a "limited" edition. What did they make, fifty million of those? "Yes, it's 'limited' to the number we can sell." Or when they try and mangle a positive word into a car name, you know how they'll do that? The "Integra." Oh, integrity? No, Integra. The "Supra." Or the "Impreza." Yeah? Well, I hope it's not a "lemona"... or you'll be hearing from my "lawya."

Quote from Mr. Steinbrenner in The Wink

George: Oh, no, not just me, the whole organization, you know. Especially Mr. Morgan.
Mr. Steinbrenner: Morgan. Morgan. You know, his name is conspicuously absent from this card. Almost like he went out of his way not to sign it.
George: Oh no, Morgan is a good man sir.
Mr. Steinbrenner: You can stop kowtowing to Morgan. Congratulations, you've got his job.
George: Well- Uh, thank you, sir. You know, I'm not quite sure I'm right for it.
Mr. Steinbrenner: Oh, it's done, George. He's out, you're in. A lot more work you know.
George: I know.
Mr. Steinbrenner: A lot more responsibility. Long, long hours.
George: I know.
Mr. Steinbrenner: Not much more money. But you'll finally get the recognition you deserve.
George: That's what I'm afraid of. You know, Mr. Steinbrenner-0
Mr. Steinbrenner: You know, George, as painful as it is, I've had to let a few people go over the years. Yogi Berra, Lou Piniella, Bucky Dent, Billy Martin, Dallas Green, Dick Hauser, Bill Virdon, Billy Martin, Stump Merrill, Billy Martin, Bob Lemon, Billy Martin, Gene Michael, Buck Showalter... Uh, tut! George, you didn't hear that from me. [George exits] George!

Quote from Kramer in The Nose Job

Elaine: Daddy certainly does have an extensive wardrobe.
Landlord: He is a fine dresser and I'm sure I don't have to tell you he's quite popular with the ladies.
Elaine: My father, really? I had no idea.
Landlord: Yes, they're crazy about him. There was one in particular, came around about two years ago, looked a lot like you, Professor. Could have been your mother. What was her name again? Carter? Kramer! That's it, Babs Kramer. Nasty woman, many a night I had to throw her out on the street, drunken stumblebum.
Kramer: You don't say?
Elaine: I found it!
Landlord: The woman used to walk around here half naked, sucking Colt 45 from a can. Her big fat stomach hanging out, orthopedic hose up to her knees, screaming down the hall, "Come back to bed, Albert, you big hairy ape, and bring back that box of Danish!"
Kramer: So I grabbed the guy by the collar.
Elaine: Yeah, and I yelled out, "Kramer, Kramer, you're killing him!"
Jerry: So I assume the jig was up.
Elaine: Yeah, pretty much.

Quote from Elaine in The Stranded

Woman: I wonder what happened to my fiance. I know he's here somewhere. Ellen? Have you seen my fiance?
Ellen: He's upstairs.
Woman: Are you going upstairs? Tell my fiance I'm looking for him. I have lost my fiance, the poor baby.
Elaine: [Australian accent] Maybe the dingo ate your baby.
Woman: What?
Elaine: The dingo ate your baby!
