Quotes

George: You know the odds of me being anyone's type? I have never been anyone's type, but apparently, this Marisa Tomei loves funny, quirky, bald men.

Morty: My seat's got a memory, in case somebody moves it. I could be in prison for five years. I come out, my seat goes right back to where I like it.
Jerry: That's what I was thinking.

Kramer: You're gonna score some big points with the man upstairs on this one.
Jerry: (nodding) oh, isn't that what it's all about?

Jerry: You know, you could put a fence around these condos and call it an insane asylum. Nobody would know the difference!

Jack: Your son could never afford that car. We all saw his act, last year, at the playhouse.

Evelyn: I'll see you at the Lichtenberg's, tonight.
Helen: The Lichtenberg's?
Evelyn: Yes, they're having a party.
Helen: We weren't invited.
Evelyn: Oh. Probably they think you're too good for them. You know, because of the car.

Jerry: (after Kramer asks him what he plans to do with all the money) Actually I was thinking of donating a large portion to charity.
Kramer: Really?
Jerry: No.
