Seinfeld (season 7)
Seinfeld was an American sitcom that aired on NBC from 1989 to 1998. It revolved around neurotic comedian Jerry Seinfeld and his three equally neurotic friends. A self-described "show about nothing", it is generally considered one of the most popular, influential sitcoms of all time.
The Engagement [7.1]
- Susan: I just want you to know that I love your son very much.
- Estelle: You do?
- Susan: Yes.
- Estelle: Really?
- Susan: Yes.
- Estelle: May I ask why?
- Jerry: Well, you know, we were having dinner the other night, and she's got this strangest habit: she eats her peas one at a time. You've never seen anything like it. It takes her an hour to finish them. I mean, we've had dinner other times. I've seen her eat corn niblets, but she scooped them.
- George: She scooped the niblets?
- Jerry: Yes. That's what was so vexing.
The Postponement [7.2]

- George: Still marry. Still marry.

- George: No, no, no. No mistake, no mistake!
The Maestro [7.3]
- Kramer: You know you hurt the Maestro's feelings.
- Jerry: Oh what, because I didn't call him "Maestro"?
- Kramer: That's right.
- Jerry: Ya know, I feel a little funny calling somebody "Maestro."
- Kramer: Why?
- Jerry: Because it's a stupid thing to be called.
- Kramer: Jerry, he's a conductor.
- Jerry: Oh, conductor. He conducts the Policeman's Benevolent Association Orchestra.
- Jerry: New shirt?
- George: Yeah. You like it?

- Jerry: How do you pull that off?
- George: I always look annoyed. Yeah, when you look annoyed all the time, people think that you're busy. Think about it... [puts on an annoyed face]
- Elaine: Yeah, you do! He looks very busy!
- Jerry: Yeah, he looks busy! Yeah!
- George: I know what I'm doin.' In fact Mr. Wilhelm gave me one of those little stress dolls. All right, back to work. [puts on the annoyed face]
- George: Hey, you bastards.
- Jerry: Hey, how was the meeting?
- George: I really like those sons of bitches.
- Jerry: Sons of bitches?
- George: Yeah! That's how they talk. You know, everyone's either a bastard or a son of a bitch. Yeah, it's like, uh... "Boy, that son of a bitch Boggs can really hit, huh?"

- Soup Nazi: You want bread?
- George: Yes, please.

- Soup Nazi: Yes.
- Elaine: Never been a big fan. [imitates gagging] Um... Y'know what has anyone ever told you look exactly like Al Pacino? [the Soup Nazi looks at her in confusion] Y'know, Scent of a Woman? Hoo-ah! Hoo-ah! [chuckles]
- Soup Nazi: Very good. Very good. You know something? NO SOUP FOR YOU!
- Elaine: What?!
- Soup Nazi: Come back one year! Next!
- Jerry: What are ya gonna get?
- Sheila: I'll just decide at the last minute.
- Jerry: You better decide, sister! You're on deck! [Sheila kisses him] Sheila!
- Soup Nazi: [bangs on the counter] Hey!
- Jerry: Uh-oh.
- Soup Nazi: What is this?! You're kissing in my line! Nobody kisses in my line!
- Sheila: I can kiss anywhere I want to!
- Soup Nazi: You just cost yourself a soup!
- Sheila: How dare you! C'mon, Jerry, we're leaving! Jerry!
- Jerry: [looks at the Soup Nazi and then back at Sheila] Do I know you? [Sheila gasps in shock]
- Elaine: Hello.
- Soup Nazi: You. You think you can get soup? Please. You're wasting everyone's time.

The Secret Code [7.7]
- Jerry: Oh, come on, just tell me your code already. What is it?
- George: I am not giving you my code.
- Kramer: I bet I can guess it.
- George: Yeah, right.
- Kramer: Oh, alright. Let's see... Well, we can throw out birthdays immediately. That's too obvious. And no numbers for you, you're a word man. Alright, let's go deeper. What kind of man are you? Well, you're weak, spineless, a man of temptations, but what tempts you?
- George: Huh?
- Kramer: You're a portly fellow, a bit long in the waistband. So what's your pleasure? Is it the salty snacks you crave? No, no, no, no, yours is a sweet tooth.
- George: [getting nervous] Get out of here.
- Kramer: Oh, you may stray, but you'll always return to your dark master: the cocoa bean.
- George: [gets up] I'm leaving.
- Kramer: No, and only the purest syrup nectar can satisfy you!
- George: I gotta go.
- Kramer: [chasing after George] If you could, you'd guzzle it by the gallon! Ovaltine! Hershey's!

The Sponge [7.9]
- Jerry: She's too good.
- George: Too good?
- Jerry: I mean, she's giving and caring and genuinely concerned about the welfare of others. I can't be with someone like that.
- George: I see what you mean.
- Jerry: I admire the hell out of her. You can't have sex with someone you admire.
- Elaine: I just couldn't decide if he was really sponge worthy.
The Gum [7.10]
- George: Speaking of crazy, did you hear about Lloyd Braun?
The Rye [7.11]
- Frank: What is this thing, anyway?
- Mrs. Ross: It's Cornish game hen.
- Frank: What is that? Like a little chicken?
- George: It's, uh, it's not a little chicken. [laughs] "Little chicken." It's a game bird.
- Frank: Game bird?
- George: Yeah.
- Frank: What do you mean? Like, you hunt it?
- Mr. Ross: Yes...
- Frank: How hard could it be to kill this thing?
- Frank: Let me understand. You got the hen, the chicken and the rooster. The rooster goes with the chicken. So, who's having sex with the hen?
- George: Why don't we talk about it another time?
- Frank: But you see my point here? You only hear of a hen, a rooster and a chicken. Something's missing!
- Mrs. Ross: Something's missing all right.
- Mr. Ross: They're all chickens. The rooster has sex with all of them.
- Frank: That's perverse!

The Seven [7.13]

- Jerry: Well, let me know when you get something in there.
- George: All right, I tell you what. You look like nice people. I'm gonna help you out. You want a beautiful name? Soda.
- Ken: What?
- George: Soda. S-O-D-A. Soda.
- Carrie: I don't know, it sounds a little strange.

The Cadillac(1) [7.14]
- Jack: I don't feel like taking a ride. Do I have to take a ride?

- Morty: Thousands?
- Jack: What? D'you think you're such a big shot now because you got a Cadillac?

Through a certain connection, I've been able to locate some black market shower heads. They're all made in the former Yugoslavia. And from what I hear, the Serbs are fanatic about their showers.
- Jerry: Not from the footage I've seen.
- Peterman: Elaine, you've tested positive for opium.
- Elaine: What?
- Peterman: That's right, Elaine. White lotus. Yam-yam. Shanghai Sally!
- Peterman: I know what you're going through. I too once fell under the spell of opium. It was 1979. I was traveling the Yangtzee in search of a Mongolian horsehair vest. I had got to the market after sundown. All of the clothing traders had gone, but a different sort of trader still lurked about. "Just a taste" he said. That was all it took.
- Elaine: Mr. Peterman, I don't know what's going on here. I am not addicted to anything.
- Peterman: Oh, Elaine, the toll road of denial is a long and dangerous one. The price? Your soul. Oh, and by the way, you have till 5:00 to clear out your desk. You're fired.
- Kramer: [claps his hands together] All right, what have we got here?
- Showerhead Dealer: [explaining professionally] I got everything here. I got the Cyclone F series Hydra Jet Flow, Stockholm Superstream, you name it.
- Newman: They're too many. What do you recommend?
- Showerhead Dealer: [with an inquiring look] - What are you looking for?
- Kramer: [with an asserting tone] - Power, man, power. [day drinking] Like Silkwood. [points at the van] Now, what is this?
- Showerhead Dealer: That's the Commando 450. I don't sell that one.
- Kramer: No, that's what we want man. The Commando 450.
- Showerhead Dealer: [inhales his cigarette, throws it away, and turns to close the van] No, believe me. That's only used in the circus for elephants. I think we're done here.
- Kramer: [disparately] - Just give it to us. - We'll pay anything. - We've got the...
- Newman: - What about Jerry?
- Kramer: [while counting the money] What about him? - He couldn't handle that. He's delicate.

- George: Felt like it. I tell you, this doll is pretty spooky. It's freakin' me out, man.
- Kramer: Frank here, he's got his own billiard room.
- Frank: Yes, It's, uh, it's... uh, uh... What do you call it, Kramer?
- Kramer: A billiard room.
- Frank: No, not billiard. Not billiards. It was... come on, already. Come on...
- Kramer: What?
- Frank: We call it... the, uh...
- Kramer: [snaps fingers] "The Place To Be!"
- Frank: "The Place To Be!" Yes! It's the place to be.
The Friars Club [7.18]
The Wig Master [7.19]
- Jerry: Excuse me. Excuse me. Are you asking him out?
- Jessie: Yeah... I guess you could say that..
- Jerry: Right in front of me! How do you know we're not together? Two guys sitting, laughing, drinking "Champagne Coolies."
- Jerry: I'm telling you right now, Elaine, this guy's gonna dangle that dress in front of you like a dirt farmer dangles a carrot in front of a mule.
The Calzone [7.20]
- Steinbrenner: [after smelling the calzones] Constanza is in the building! And he's not in his office! Constanza! He's got the calzone! I've got you! [runs out of his office]
- Kramer: Hey, buddy. I am waiting for my shirt.
- Jerry: You got your shirt in my oven?
- Kramer: I didn't have any quarters for the dryer. Anyway, this is better. And it's more convenient.
- Jerry: [ironically] For both of us.
- Kramer: And I have a lot more control. I have one shirt going for ten minutes at 325 degrees.
- Jerry: What's wrong with your oven?
- Kramer: I'm baking a pie!
The Bottle Deposit(1) [7.21]
- Newman: It's the truck, Kramer. The truck!
- Kramer: Look, Newman, I told you to let this thing go.
- Newman: No, no, no, no no. Listen to me. Most days, the post office sends one truckload of mail to the second domestic regional sorting facility in Saginaw, Michigan.
- Kramer: (interested) Uh-huh.
- Newman: But, on the week before holidays, we see a surge. On Valentine's Day, we send two trucks. On Christmas, four, packed to the brim. And tomorrow, if history is any guide, will see some spillover into a fifth truck.
- Kramer: (realization) Mother's Day.
- Newman: The mother of all mail days. And guess who signed up for the truck.
- Kramer: A free truck? Oh boy, that completely changes our cost structure. Our G and A goes down fifty percent.
- Newman: (excited) We carry a couple of bags of mail, and the rest is ours!
- Kramer: Newman, you magnificent bastard, you did it!
- Newman: (triumph) Let the collecting begin!
The Bottle Deposit(2) [7.22]
- Farmer's daughter: No, Daddy, don't hurt him! I love him! Goodbye, Norman! Goodbye!
The Wait Out [7.23]
- Kramer: [fixing up his pants] Yeah... Look at this, Mickey. These pants are fallin' apart, huh?
- Jerry: You know, when I first met you, Kramer, you used to wear jeans all the time.
- Kramer: Yeah, well, I was a different man then.
- Jerry: With a different body.
- Kramer: Hey, I got the body of a... taut, preteen Swedish boy.
The Invitations [7.24]
[After George pretends to be an addicted smoker to make Susan cancel the wedding]
- Susan: Since when do you smoke?
- George: [coughs] I've always smoked.
- Susan: I've never seen you smoke.
- George: Oh, yeah? Well, I quit smokin.' I [coughs] gave it up for a w- [cough] while, but it was too tough. Y' know, [cough] I haven't got the will power.
- Susan: I don't like this one bit.
- George: Well[coughs] I can't stop now [coughs] I'm addicted... [coughing, wretching] they got a hold of me.
- Susan: Well, you are gonna have to quit.
- George: Oh, God! [runs to the bathroom]
- George: I put a lot of thought into this, and I think I would like you to sign a prenuptial agreement.
- Susan: A pre-nup?
- George: Yeah. [Susan laughs] What's so funny?
- Susan: Hahahaha... You don't have any money. I make more money than you do. Haha. Yeah, give me the papers. I'll sign 'em.
