  • Quotes

    • Elaine: I'm not buying a computer from you.
      George: There's porn.
      Elaine (thinks about it for a second): Even so.

    • Jerry: George, letting my emotions out was the best thing I've ever done. Sure, I'm not funny anymore, but there's more to life than making shallow, fairly obvious observations.

    • Frank: Starting tonight we're having a little sales contest. The loser gets fired. The winner gets a Water Pik.

    • Jerry: You've heard me yell.
      George: Not really. Your voice kind of raises to this comedic pitch.

    • Patty: I've never seen you mad.
      Jerry: I get peeved.
      Patty: Mad.
      Jerry: Miffed.
      Patty: Mad.
      Jerry: Irked.
      Patty:I would like to see you get really mad.

    • George: (referring to Jerry and Elaine) You know, all these years, I've always wanted to see the two of you get back together.
      Elaine: Well, that's because you're an idiot.

    • George: (Walking in as Jerry is kneeling in order to propose to Elaine) Something wrong with your leg?

    • Elaine: If you weren't Jewish, you wouldn't be interested in me.
      Mr. Lippman: You are wrong. I'll prove it.
      Elaine: Oh, no. Don't!
      Mr. Lippman: I renounce Judaism!
      Elaine: Oy, vey!

      George: "Serenity now?" What's that?
      Frank: I got a tape on how to lower my blood pressure. Whenever it starts to get too high, the man on the tape said to say, "SERENITY NOW!"
      George: Are you supposed to shout it?
      Frank: The man on the tape wasn't specific.

    • Jerry: 1%? They can kiss 1% of my ass!

    • Lloyd: Serenity now. Insanity later.

    • Jerry:I don't know what's happening to me.
      Kramer: Simple. You let out one emotion, all the rest will come
      with it. It's like Endora's box.
      Jerry: That was the mother on Bewitched. You mean Pandora.
      Kramer: Yeah, well, she... had one, too.

    • Kramer: Y'all come back reeeeal –
      (Jerry slams door)

    • Jerry: Oh, you think I'm lying about this?
      Patty: I think you are.
      Jerry: Well, I'm not.
      Patty: Yes, you are, liar.
      Jerry: Oh, stop it.
      Patty: OK, liar.
      Jerry: That's enough!
      Patty: Ooh that was good.
      Jerry: Really? It felt good.

    • Elaine: What's the matter?
      Jerry: It's Patty.
      Elaine: Jerry, you break up with a girl every week.
      Jerry: What is this salty discharge?
      Elaine: Oh my God, you're crying.
      Jerry: This is horrible. I care.

    • Jerry: I love you Kramer.
      Kramer: Yeah I love you too buddy.

    • Elaine: What happened to the new Jerry?
      Jerry: He doesn't work here anymore.

    • Frank: Hoochie mamma! Hoochie mamma!

    • Frank: Serenity now!

    • Kramer: Serenity now!

    • George: Serenity now!

    • Kramer: Hoochie mamma.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • When Frank tells George about how he became interested in computers, he mentions he saw a movie called ""The Net", with the girl from the bus". He is referring to the movie The Net, starring Sandra Bullock, who also starred in Speed, about a city bus armed with bombs by a terrorist.

    • The sales contest Frank Costanza institutes (where the highest seller is rewarded and the lowest is fired) is a parody of the 1991 movie Glengarry Glen Ross.

    • : When George says his mother always said "Why can't you be more like Lloyd Braun".
      Lloyd Braun is the Entertainment Chairman@ABC. George's quote and the stories of George and Lloyd growing up together and competing is a reference to ABC being NBC's chief ratings rival.
