George: (to Jerry) I got a feeling I'm going to be much smarter than you pretty soon.

George: If it's not about sports, I find it very hard to concentrate.
Jerry: You're not very bright, are you?
George: No I'm not. I would like to be, but I'm not.

Jerry: Poppie peed on my sofa!

George: You know what I love? How there's two nuts named after people: Hazel and Filbert.

Jerry: (on Elaine's boyfriend) What is his stand...on abortion?
Elaine: Well, I'm sure he's pro-choice.
Jerry: How do you know?
Elaine: Because he, well...he's just so good-looking.

Jerry: (admiring his new sofa) What do you think Lainey?
Elaine: Well, I don't know. I'll have to sit on it.
Jerry: Oh no. I don't want anyone sitting on it.

Notes and Trivia

The "wet spot" that Poppie leaves behind on Jerry's new couch, is actually there (hidden by newspapers) before actor Reni Santoni sits down. As he sits, you'' notice that he moves the newspapers aside at the last moment.
