Kramer: The check comes down as long as little jerry wins his cock fight.
Jerry: Great... what?!
Kramer: Yea Marcelino has cock fights in the back of his store.
Jerry: Kramer, cock fighting is illegal.
Kramer: (with food in his mouth) Yea, but only in the United States!
Jerry: Kramer, cockfighting is illegal.
Kramer: Only in the United States.
Jerry: It's inhumane.
Kramer: Jerry, it's not what you think.
Jerry: It's two roosters pecking at each other!
Kramer: What? I thought they had gloves and helmets. You know, like American Gladiators.
Kramer: But You should've seen 'Little Jerry' Jerry. Flapping his wings and strutting his stuff. His pecking, and weaving, and bobbin, and talking trash! He didn't even have to touch him. The other rooster ran out of the ring. The whole fight lasted 2 seconds.
Jerry: How long do they usually last?
Kramer: 5 seconds.
Jerry:(Explaining to Kramer that he does not have a hen, with a clarity belying his drowsiness at having been awakened by daybreak crowing) That is a rooster.
Kramer: Well, that would explain Little Jerry's poor egg production.
