Jerry: I love when you're in the middle of a dream and your alarm goes off, you incorporate the sound into the dream so you can keep sleeping. And you'll make any adjustment in the dream to do it. I was with Marie Antoinette in a dream last night. She was on the guillotine, the blade came down her head fell in the basket, rolled over and she started singing Neil Diamond's "Solitary Man."
George: I'm telling you, I can coach in the NFL. It's not that hard.
Jerry: That might be the stupidest thing you've ever said.
George: Get out of here.
Jerry: Come on. No, the stupidest thing was when you said Steve Kroft from 60 Minutes is the guy from Seals & Croft.
Jerry: This da Vinci sleep is working?
Kramer: I'm percolating, Jerry. I tell you, I have never felt so fertile. I'm mossy, Jerry. My brain is mossy. Listen to this idea... a restaurant that serves only peanut butter and jelly.
Jerry: What do you call it?
Kramer: PB and J's.
Jerry: So how'd your date work out with Connie?
Krameer: I am telling you, this woman is strange. She never wants to leave the apartment. It's like she doesn't wanna be seen with me.
Jerry: Now you're being ridiculous.
Kramer: So are you sure you don't wanna go to the movies?
Connie: No, Cosmo. I like just being here with you.
Kramer: Well, it's It's a bold adventure, huh? This is risky business, huh? I'm all atwitter.
Notes and Trivia
This is a rare episode where Elaine doesn't share a scene or talk to either George or Kramer.
There really is a restaurant that serves only variations of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and it is called "PBJ's".
When George comes in to tell Jerry the wedding date, a roll of paper towels on the counter changes position between shots.
When Jerry and Elaine talk in her office, he picks up a sandwich and starts to eat. Around the time Bob walks in, a napkin appears in Jerry's hand from nowhere.
When Jerry goes to the Santos Brothers' dressing room, the brother who answers the door says that two of his brothers had left already, and we then see that there were only two more brothers inside the dressing room. That makes a total of five brothers. However, when they were performing on stage, there were only four brothers.
