The Seinfeld Chronicles (Pilot) [1.1]
- Jerry: If you've got a t-shirt with blood stains all over it maybe laundry isn't your biggest problem right now.
- Jerry: Women know what men want, men know what men want. What do we want? We want women!
The Stakeout [1.2]
- Jerry: [opening bit] I think to a man, a check is like a note from your mother that says "I don't have any money, but if you'll contact these people, I'm sure they'll stick up for me... If you just trust me this one time I don't have any money but I have these... I wrote on these... is this of any value at all?
- Jerry: So, do you date immature men?
- Vanessa: Almost exclusively.
The Robbery [1.3]
- Jerry: [realizing his answering machine was taken] I hate the thought of someone out there returning my calls.
- Kramer: How can you not have insurance?
- Jerry: Because I spent my money on the Clapco D29. It's the most impenetrable lock on the market today. It has only one design flaw...the door...MUST BE CLOSED!!
Male Unbonding [1.4]
- George: She calls me up at my office, she says, 'We have to talk.'
- Jerry: Ugh, the four worst words in the English language.
- George: That, or 'Whose bra is this?'
- Jerry: That's worse.
The Stock Tip [1.5]
- Vanessa: I said the market fluctuates. Remember?
- Jerry: Look, Vanessa, of course the market fluctuates. Everybody knows that. I just got fluctuated out of four thousand dollars!
- Elaine: What do you think a hit man would charge to rub out a couple of cats?
- Jerry: Well, it couldn't be too expensive. $13, $14 a cat?
- Elaine: Whadaya say, Jerry, you want to make $28?
- Jerry: Hey, I'm no cat-killer.
The Ex-Girlfriend [2.1]

- Jerry: You know, when you read "Moby Dick" the second time Ahab and the whale become good friends.
The Pony Remark [2.2]
- Elaine: And what about the pony huh? What kind of abnormal animal is that? They're like big riding dogs.
- Jerry: If I have to sit next to Uncle Leo, I am leaving, He's always grabbin' my arm when he talks to me. That's probably because so many people have left in the middle of his conversation.
The Jacket [2.3]
- Jerry: This jacket has completely changed my life.
- George: Can I say one thing to you? And I say this with an unblemished record of staunch heterosexuality. It’s fabulous.
- Elaine: My Dad thinks George is gay.
- Jerry: Oh, because of all the singing?
- Elaine: No, he pretty much thinks everyone is gay.
The Phone Message [2.4]
- Donna: I asked some friends of mine this week, and all of them liked the Dockers commercial.
- Jerry: Boy, I bet you got a regular Algonquin round table there.
- George: The light is blinking: "Come and listen to the idiot!... The idiot's on!!"
The Apartment [2.5]
- Jerry: [about the marathon] Ah, what's to see? A woman from Norway, a guy from Kenya and 20,000 losers.
- Roxanne: The marathon is great, isn't it?
- Jerry: Yes, particularly if you're not in it.
The Statue [2.6]
- Kramer: Yeah, I'm a cop, I'm a good cop, I'm a DAMN GOOD COP!
- George: [The statue] slipped out of my hand and it broke. My parents looked at me like I smashed the ten commandments. To this day, they bring it up. It was the single most damaging experience in my life, aside from seeing my father naked.
The Revenge [2.7]
- Newman: [about to commit suicide] Kramer! I'm on the roof!
- Kramer: Well, what are you waiting for?
- George: Maybe I could be like, an announcer. Like a color man. You know how I always make those interesting comments during the game.
- Jerry: Yeah. Yeah. You make good comments.
- George: What about that?
- Jerry: Well, they tend to give those jobs to ex-ballplayers and people that are, you know, in broadcasting.
- George: Well, that's really not fair.
The Heart Attack [2.8]
- Tor: Your tea is ready now. This should solve your so-called tonsil problem. It's a special concoction. It contains crampbark.
- Jerry: I love crampbark.
- Tor: Cleavers.
- Jerry: Cleaver, I once had cleaver as a kid. I was able to lift a car!
- Tor: And some couchgrass.
- Jerry: Couchgrass and crampbark? You know, I think that's what killed Curly.
- Tor: Do you use hot water in the shower?
- George: Yes.
- Tor: Stop using it.
The Deal [2.9]
- Jerry: So how's the job situation going?
- George: Still lookin'. It's pretty bad out there. What about you?
- Jerry: Nothin' much. I slept with Elaine last night.
- George: You ask me to have lunch, tell me you slept with Elaine, and then say you're not in the mood for details. Now you listen to me. I want details and I want them right now. I don't have a job, I have no place to go. You're not in the mood? Well you get in the mood!
The Baby Shower [2.10]
- Jerry: Explain to me how this baby shower thing works.
- Elaine: What do you wanna know?
- Jerry: Well, I mean, does it ever erupt into a drunken orgy of violence?
- Elaine: Rarely.
- Jerry: Sometimes the road less travelled is less travelled for a reason.
The Chinese Restaurant [2.11]
- Elaine: Ya know, its not fair people are seated first-come-first-served. It should be based on who's hungriest.
- Elaine: 50 bucks, you'll give me 50 bucks?
- Jerry: 50 bucks. That table over there, the three couples.
- Elaine: OK, I don't wanna go over there and do it, and then come back here and find out there was some little loophole, like I didn't put mustard on it or something...
- Jerry: No, no tricks.
- Elaine: Should I do it, George?
- George: For 50 bucks? I'd put my face in the soup and blow.
The Busboy [2.12]
- [sees the manager chewing the busboy out from the dining room doorway]
- Jerry: I think the busboy's in trouble.
- George: Did I get him in trouble? Because of what I said?! I just told him what happened. He didn't do it on purpose!
- [manager and busboy are arguing, The busboy points in the direction of George]
- He pointed at me. Why did he point at me?!
- Elaine: I said I would never eat here again. But, I, I.. he had to know I was kidding.
- Jerry: [casually] I didn't say anything.
- Kramer: ¿Como se dice.. waterbed?
The Note [3.1]
- [Jerry comes to apologize to Julianna who has her son with her]
- Julianna: I treated you, so please, just get out of the office!
- Jerry: Can't you just listen to me?
- Julianna: Run Billy! Run to the office and close the door!
- George: This is terrible. What is this, ginger? I hate ginger! I can't understand how anyone can eat ginger.
The Truth [3.2]
- Jerry: What did you tell her?
- George: I told her that she was pretentious.
- Jerry: Pretentious!? The woman has my tax papers. You told her she was pretentious? The IRS. They're like the mafia. They can take anything they want.
- Elaine: You see, that's karma.
- Jerry: No, that's Kramer.
The Pen [3.3]
- [referring to Jerry's eyes]
- Jack: What happened to you?
- Jerry: I got in a fist fight with one of the ladies at the pool.
- Photographer: Say "astronaut".
- [Elaine, laughing, walks right up to the lens of the camera]
- Elaine: Heh heh, say what? Haha heh! say what?
- Jerry: [pulls her back] You took too many of those pills
The Dog [3.4]
- Jerry: Two hundred seats on a plane, I gotta wind up next to Yukon Jack and his dog Cujo.
- Kramer: I must have been out of my mind. Look at you. Why don't you do something with your life? Sit around here all day, you contribute nothing to society. You're just taking up space. How could I be with someone like you? Couldn't respect myself.
The Library [3.5]
- George: He purposely mispronounced my name. Instead of saying "Costanza", he'd say "Can't-stand-ya, can't stand ya!". He made me smell my own gym socks once.
- Kramer: Bookman? The library investigator's name is actually Bookman?
- Librarian: It's true.
- Kramer: That's amazing. That's like an ice cream man named "Cohn".
The Parking Garage [3.6]
- Jerry: You know I have been issued a public urination pass by the city because of my condition. Unfortunately, my little brother ran out of the house with it this morning. Him and his friends are probably peeing all over the city.
- Elaine: Why can't you do it?
- Man: I can't.
- Elaine: No, see that's not a reason you can't. You just don't want to.
- Man: That's right.
- Elaine: But why? Why don't you want to?
- Man: I don't know.
- Elaine: But wouldn't you get any satisfaction out of helping someone out?
- Man: No, I wouldn't.
The Cafe [3.7]
- Jerry: I don't know. I'm obsessed with it. It's like a spider in the toilet struggling for a survival. And even if you know it's not going to make it, you kind of root it for awhile.
- Elaine: And then you flush.
- Jerry: Well, it's a spider.
- Jerry: Casus belli.
- Elaine: Casus..belli.
The Tape [3.8]
- Elaine: (jokingly) Jerry, I want to slide my tongue around you like a snake.....Ooooooooooha ,oooooohaaaa.....
The Nose Job [3.9]
- Kramer: Oh, you're as pretty as them. You just need a nose job.
- George: [referring to a nose job] Peter Jennings had one.
- Audrey: Really?
- George: Probably. They all do. In my high school, half my graduating class had them. Of course, I'm from Long Island, so...
The Stranded [3.10]
- Ava: Are you a vegetarian?
- Jerry: Here we go..
- Elaine: Yeah, I eat fish occasionally.
- Ava: So you're a hypocrite.
- George: Hey, I've eaten frogs, so nobody's perfect.
- Elaine: Oh yeah, that's right. Go ahead, go ahead, maybe you can run over a squirrel!
- George: That's why we're here in America.
The Alternate Side [3.11]
- Agent: Unfortunately we ran out of cars.
- Jerry: But the reservation keeps the car here. That's why you have the reservation.
- Agent: I know why we have reservations.
- Jerry: I don't think you do. If you did, I'd have a car. See, you know how to take the reservation, you just don't know how to *hold* the reservation and that's really the most important part of the reservation, the holding. Anybody can just take them.
- Sid: Moving cars from one side of the street to the other don't take no more sense than putting on a pair of pants. My question to you is who's putting your pants on?
The Red Dot [3.12]
- Mr. Lippman: It has come to my attention that you and the cleaning woman have engaged in sexual intercourse on the desk in your office. Is that correct?
- George: (pause) Who said that?
- Mr. Lippman: She did.
- George: (long pause, obviously thinking of something to say) Was that wrong? Should I not have done that?
- Elaine: George, this is one of the nicest things anyone has ever given me!
- George: Well good, good. Take it off you're going to wear it out already. It's for special occasions this thing.
- Kramer: What's that red dot on your sweater?
The Subway [3.13]
- Kramer: All right, Coney Island. Ok, you can take the B or the F and switch for the N at Broadway Lafayette, or you can go over the bridge to DeKalb and catch the Q to Atlantic Avenue, then switch to the IRT 2, 3, 4 or 5, but don't get on the G. See that's very tempting, but you wind up on Smith and 9th street, then you got to get on the R.
- Elaine: Couldn't he just take the D straight to Coney Island?
- Kramer: Well, yeah...
- Jerry: Remember, don't whistle on the elevator.
- George: Why not?
- Jerry: That's what Willie Loman told Biff before his interview, in "Death of a Salesman".
- George: What, you are comparing me to Biff Loman? Very encouraging; The biggest loser in history of American literature.
The Pez Dispenser [3.14]
- Jerry: Anyone who would laugh at a recital is probably some sort of lunatic anyway. I mean, only a sick, twisted mind could be that rude and ignorant.
- Elaine: Well, maybe some mental defective put something stupid on her leg.
- Jerry: Even if this so-called mental defective did put something on her leg, she's still the one who laughed.
- Jerry: By the way, how do you warm up before you play?
- Noel: I just crack my knuckles and go.
The Suicide [3.15]
- Elaine: But here it was, mountains of duck. And not fatty duck, either, but juicy tender breasts of duck.
- George: Are there terrorists on the plane? A hotel fire -- is that it? Typhus? Malaria? Yellow fever? Lupus? Is it lupus?!
The Fix-Up [3.16]
- George: Is there a pinkish hue?
- Jerry: A pinkish hue?
- George: Yeah, a rosy glow.
- Jerry: There's a hue. She's got great eyebrows; women kill to have her eyebrows.
- George: Who cares about eyebrows?
- George: What kind of hair?
- Jerry: You know, long dark hair.
- George: Flowing?
- Jerry: Flowing?
- George: Is it flowing? I like flowing, cascading hair. Thick, lustrous hair is very important to me.
- Jerry: 'Thick lustrous hair is very important to me,' is that what you said?
- George: Yeah, that's right.
- Jerry: Just clarifying.
The Boyfriend, Part 1 [3.17]
- Jerry: According to your story, Hernandez passes you and starts walking up the ramp. Then you say you were struck on the right temple. The spit then proceeds to ricochet off the temple striking Newman between the third and fourth rib. The spit then came off the rib turned and hit Newman in the right wrist causing him to drop his baseball cap. The spit then splashed off the wrist, pauses --in mid air, mind you-- makes a left turn and lands on Newman's left thigh. That is one magic loogie.
- Jerry: I'm saying that the spit could not have come from behind, that there had to have been a second spitter, behind the bushes on the gravelly road. If the spitter was behind you as you claim, that would've caused your head to pitch forward.
- Elaine: So the spit could've only come from the front and to the right.
- Jerry: But that's not what they would have you believe.
- Newman: I'm leavin'. Jerry's a nut!
- Kramer: (to Newman) Wait, wait, wait.
- Jerry: The sad thing is that we may never know the real truth.
The Boyfriend, Part 2 [3.18]
- Keith Hernandez: [thinking] Come on, I won the MVP in '79. I can do whatever I want to.
The Limo [3.19]
- Eva: What was that you said about the myth of the Holocaust?
- George: Oh, I said so many things. I- (a loud blast is heard) They're shooting! They're shooting!
The Good Samaritan [3.20]
- George: No, no, I don't think I'm special. My mother always said I'm not special.
- Elaine: I'm speechless! I am without speech!
The Letter [3.21]
- Art patron: [describing his view of "The Kramer" portrait] He is a loathsome, offensive brute. Yet I can't look away.
- George: I don't get art.
- Jerry: There's nothing to get.
- George: No, it always has to be explained to me, and then I have to have someone explain the explanation
The Parking Space [3.22]
- George: All bald people look good in hats.
- Elaine: You should have lived in the twenties and thirties, you know men wore hats all the time then.
- George: What a bald paradise that must have been. Nobody knew.
- Jerry: Like you didn't call me a phony?
- Mike: What? (to Kramer) Thanks! Real good! Jerry! First of all, I think you completely misunderstood what I said. I meant it in a complementary way. I mean, you know when people say, 'He's bad', it really means he's good, sort of thing? You know, slang.
- Jerry: Use it in a sentence.
- Mike: Man, that Michael Jordan is so phony. (to Kramer) Why'd you tell him?!?
The Keys [3.23]
- Kramer: Do you ever yearn?
- George: Yearn? Do I yearn?
- Kramer: I yearn.
- George: You yearn?
- Kramer: Oh, yes. Yes, I yearn. Often I sit...and yearn. Have you yearned?
- George: Well not recently. I craved.
- Jerry: You scared me!
- Kramer: It’s just me.
- Jerry: That’s enough!
The Trip, Part 1 [4.1]
- Voice: Murphy Brown.
- Kramer: Uh, yeah, uh, Candace Bergen please.
- Voice: Who's calling please?
- Kramer: Well, just tell her that it's Kramer.
- [dial tone]
- George: This is Morning Mist.
The Trip, Part 2 [4.2]
- George: I hate asking for change. They always make a face. Like I'm asking them to donate a kidney.
- Jerry: Hello 911? How are you?
The Pitch [4.3]
- Telemarketer: Hi, would you be interested in switching over to TMI long distance service.
- Jerry: Oh, gee, I can't talk right now. Why don't you give me your home number and I'll call you later.
- Telemarketer: Uh, I'm sorry we're not allowed to do that.
- Jerry: Oh, I guess you don't want people calling you at home.
- Telemarketer: No.
- Jerry: Well now you know how I feel.
- Kramer: No. We had a deal. There are no guarantees in life.
- Newman: No, but there's karma, Kramer.
- Jerry: "Karma Kramer"?
The Ticket [4.4]
- Newman: So I sped home to save my friend's life and I was stopped for speeding. Yes, I admit I was speeding but it was to save a man's life! A close friend. An innocent person who wanted nothing more out of life than to love, to be loved and to be a banker.
- Jerry: You know a muffin can be very filling.
The Wallet [4.5]
- George: Is Ted Danson's deal standard?
- Susan: Ted Danson?
- George: You know, the guy from Cheers.
- Susan: Yeah, I know who he is. (laughs) You're not Ted Danson.
- Morty: My wallet's gone! My wallet's gone!
The Watch [4.6]
- Elaine: Just tell him that you're my boyfriend and that we're in love, okay. Can you do that?
- Kramer:Yeah, yeah, okay. I'm your boyfriend...How often do we do it?
- Elaine: Kramer, how is that important? Honestly, do you really think he's gonna ask you that?

- Jerry: No, nah. I'm not happy and I'm not lucky, and I don't go. If anything I'm sad stop unlucky.
- Naomi: Hahahaha.
- Jerry: That's not funny, Naomi. I didn't mean to be funny there. Why don't you check the TV guide. I think uh, Holocaust is on.

The Virgin [4.10]
- Elaine: I was talking to this guy, you know, and I just happened to throw my purse on the sofa and my diaphragm goes flying out. So I just froze, you know, "ahh!", staring at my diaphragm. You know, it's just lying there. So then, this woman, the one who sold me this hair thing, she grabbed it before the guy noticed, so, I mean, big deal, right? So I carry around my diaphragm, who doesn't? Yeah, like it's a big, big secret that women carry around their diaphragms. You never know when you're gonna need it, right?

- Kramer: I don't wanna get a movie hot dog! I want a Papaya King hot dog!
The Visa [4.15]
- Jerry: Well, I mean birthdays are merely symbolic of how another year's gone by and how little we've grown. No matter how desperate we are that someday a better self will emerge, with each flicker of the candles on the cake we know it's not to be. That for the rest of our sad, wretched, pathetic lives, this is who we are to the bitter end. Inevitably, irrevocably. Happy birthday? No such thing.
- George: I'm disturbed, I'm depressed, I'm inadequate, I've got it all!
The Shoes [4.16]
- Jerry: Looking at a cleavage is like looking at the sun. You don't stare at it. It's too risky. You get a sense of it and then you look away.
The Outing [4.17]
- Jerry: I've been outed, I wasn't even in!
- George: (jokingly) So, whaddya say? You know, you'll always be the only man I'll ever love.
- Jerry: What's the matter with you?
- George: (quietly) C'mon, go along...

The Old Man [4.18]
- Sid: Oh her. She steals from me. Steals my money. She says she doesn't speak English. My ass she doesn't speak English. Plays that freakin' "voo-doo" music and tries to hypnotize me.

- Jerry: They *eat* them, they don't put them next to vital organs in their abdominal cavity!
The Smelly Car [4.21]
George: This is beyond B.O. This is B.B.O.
Jerry: Usually the O stays with the B. Once the B is gone the O leaves with it.
The Handicap Spot [4.22]
- Kramer: I got news for you: handicapped people, they don't even want to park there! They wanna be treated just like anybody else! That's why, those spaces are always empty.
- George: He's right! It's the same thing with the feminists. You know, they want everything to be equal, everything! But when the check comes, where are they?
- Elaine: What's that suppose to mean?
- Salesman: This is our best model: The Cougar 9000. It's the Rolls Royce of wheelchairs. This is like...you're almost glad to be handicapped.
The Pilot, Part 1 [4.23]
- Jerry: Again with the sweat pants?
- George: What? I'm comfortable.
- Jerry: You know the message you're sending out to the world with these sweat pants? You're telling the world: "I give up. I can't compete in normal society. I'm miserable, so I might as well be comfortable."
The Pilot, Part 2 [4.24]
- Sandi: You're breaking up with me, aren't you?
- Jerry: Do you want me to break up with you?
- Sandi: If that's what you want.
- Jerry: I don't even know what you're talking about.
- Sandi: Fine. Break up with me.
- Jerry: All right. We're broken up.
- Sandi: Can we still be friends?
The Mango [5.1]
- George: You faked?
- Elaine: On occasion.
- Jerry: And the guy never knows?
- Elaine: No.
- Jerry: How can he not know that?
- Elaine: Because I was gooood.
- Elaine: Jerry, we have to have sex to save the friendship.
- Jerry: Sex to save the friendship. [starts to take off his shirt] Well if we have to we have to.
The Puffy Shirt [5.2]
- Kramer: This is going to be a new look for the 90s. You're going to be the first pirate!
- Jerry: But I don't want to be a pirate!
- Jerry: I have to wear it [the puffy shirt]! The people at the factory are making these based on me wearing it on TV! They're producing them as we speak!

The Glasses [5.3]

- George: I know about the cups.
- Frank: You got the A, B, C the D. That's the biggest.
- George: I know the D is the biggest. I've based my whole life on knowing that the D is the biggest.
The Bris [5.5]
- George: [showing off his perfect parking spot to Elaine and Jerry] Maybe the baby would like to see the spot.
- Kramer: I'm tellin' ya! The pigman is alive. The government's been experimenting with pigmen since the fifties.
- Jerry: Will you stop it. Just because a hospital gets a grant to study DNA doesn't mean they are creating a race of mutant pigmen.
- Kramer: Oh, Jerry. Would you wake up to reality! It's a military thing. They're probably creating a whole army of pig warriors.
The Lip Reader [5.6]
- Newman: When you control the mail, you control information!
- Driver: I'm so sorry, you'll have to forgive me. I can't hear a damn thing. I went to that rock concert last night at the garden. My seats were right up against the speaker. It's a heavy metal group. "Metalli"-something.

- Newman: That job sounds like it might be worth a year of free haircuts. And a comb.
- Gino: So I love the Edward Scissorhands. That's the best movie I've ever seen.
- Enzo: Ah, again with the Edward Scissorhands. How can you have hand like scissors, huh? Show me one person who's got hand like scissors!
- Gino: Hey, it's a beautiful dream. I'd love to be this man.

The Marine Biologist [5.14]
- [using the ATM at the same time as the person next to him]
- Jerry: "Cash advance"? Yes..no. "Balance inquiry"? No. "Receipt"? No. Processing...processing...processing. [to person next to him] I win!
- George: Then of course with evolution the octopus lost the nostrils and took on the more familiar look that we know today. But if you look really closely you can still see a bump where the nose use to be.

The Fire [5.20]
- Jerry: [during stand-up] To me, the thing about birthday parties is that the first birthday party you have and the last birthday party you have are actually quite similar. You know, you just kinda sit there...you're the least excited person at the party. You don't even really realize that there is a party. You don't know what's goin' on. Both birthday parties, people have to kinda help you blow out the candles, you can't do it...you don't even know why you're doing it. What is this ritual?
- George: What looked like pushing...what looked like knocking down...was a safety precaution! In a fire, you stay close to the ground, am I right? And when I ran out that door, I was not leaving anyone behind! Oh, quite the contrary! I risked my life making sure that exit was clear. Any other questions?

- Waitress: We don't have big bowls.
The Secretary [6.9]

- George: And your arms look like something in a kosher deli.
The Switch [6.10]
- George: Do you ever just get down on your knees and thank god that you know me and have access to my dementia?

I'd have to grow a moustache and get all kinds of robes and lotions and I'd need a new bedspread and new curtains I'd have to get thick carpeting and weirdo lighting. I'd have to get new friends.

The Beard [6.16]
- George: Jerry, just remember, it's not a lie if you believe it.
(Talking about George's toupee)
The Kiss Hello [6.17]

The Doorman [6.18]
- Jerry: How 'bout those Knicks?
- Doorman: Oh, I see. On the sports page..
