Elaine Marie Benes (not in pilot)
George Louis Costanza
At the end of the previous episode, Elaine and Jerry were still together; now, they're not.
CFH notes: The opening stand up bit in this episode by Jerry about "Men hunt and women nest" is used again in the actual show in an episode during Season 5 called "The Fire".
Kramer: Man, it's the nineties…it's Hammer time!
George: Someday, before I die, mark my words… I'm gonna tell that woman exactly what I think of her. I'll never be able to forgive myself until I do.
Jerry: And if you do?
George: I still won't be able to forgive myself, but at least it won't be about this.
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?
George: Every woman on the face of the Earth has complete control of my life and yet, I want them all. Is that irony?
Jerry: Sometimes the road less travelled is less travelled for a reason.
Kramer: Yeah, I eat the whole apple. The core, stem, seeds, everything.
Jerry: (to George) You're wearing the chocolate shirt!
George: She doesn't deserve a baby shower. She deserves a baby monsoon. She deserves Rosemary's Baby.
Leslie: Elaine, who catered this, Sears?
Bill: My name is Bill. I might be the last person you ever see.
Jerry: Oh, fire engines, ambulances all along the runway. And then, when we landed safely, they all seemed so...disappointed.
Jerry: What you're suggesting is illegal.
Kramer: It's not illegal!
Jerry: It's against the law.
Kramer: Well, yeah.
Kramer: Look, will you at least let me bring the guy over? He's an amazing man. He's a Russian immigrant. He escaped the Gulag! He's like the Sakharov of cable guys.
Jerry: Red shirt! Red shirt! That's the red shirt!
Kramer: (to Jerry) I'm offering you 53 channels, movies, sports, nudity, and it's free for life!
Jerry: Excuse me. Can I get something to drink?
Flight Attendant: I'm afraid not.
Jerry: What's with this airline? What, are you cutting out the drinks now?
Kramer: Cable boy. Cable boy. What have you done to my little cable boy?
Elaine: My roommate has Lyme disease.
Jerry: I thought she had Epstein-Barr syndrome?
Elaine: She has this in addition to Epstein-Barr. It's like Epstein-Barr with a twist of Lyme disease.
Christine Dunford (Leslie), who is the woman for whom the baby shower is given and "unequivocally the worst date of [George's] life", later plays the acerbic saleswoman in "The Pie"
Bosco, the chocolate that stained George's sweater, is his ATM password in a later episode.
Leslie: We just bought an apartment on Riverside Drive. Bernard Goetz's mother used to live there.
Bernard Goetz was a radical American citizen who shot four muggers in self defence when they attempted to rob him.
Kramer: He's like the Sakharov of cable guys.
Andrei Sakharov was an unsurpassed genius Russian scientist who spent his life researching and designing nuclear weapons for the USSR.
George: She deserves Rosemary's Baby.
Rosemary's Baby was a Roman Polanski film made in 1968 about a woman who is raped by Satan and gives birth to his son.
