||I love these nature shows, Ill watch and kind of nature show, and its amazing how you can always relate, to whatever theyre talking about. You know like youre watching the African Dung Beetle and youre going Boy, his life is a lot like mine. And you always root for whichever animal is the star of the show that week -- like if its the antelope, and theres a lion chasing the antelope you go, Run antelope Run! Use your Speed, Get away! But the next week its the lion, and then you go Get the antelope, eat him, bite his head! -- Trap him, dont let him use his speed!
||(to the phone) Well did he bring it up in the meeting?
||Elaine, see this T-shirt, six years I've had this T-shirt. It's my best one, I call him Golden Boy.
||Yeah, I'm on the phone here.
||Golden Boys always the first shirt I wear out of the laundry. Here... touch Golden Boy!
||No thanks. (to the phone) Yeah, Yeah I'll hold.
||But see look at the collar, it's fraying. Golden Boy is slowly dying. Each wash brings him one step closer, that's what makes the T-shirt such a tragic figure.
||Why don't you just let Golden Boy soak in the sink with some Woolight?
||No!!! The reason he's the iron man is because he goes out there and plays every game. Wash!!! Spin!!! Rinse!!! Spin!!! You take that away from him, you break his spirit!
||(to the phone)Yeah. Oh! What? He is! Oh! thats fantastic! I'm so excited! Yes I'm excited, OK, OK I'll be in soon! yeah, yeah, I'm coming, I'm coming! OK bye. (Elaine jumps up and dances around) Yuri Testikov, the Russian writer!
||The guy whos in the gulag?!
||Yeah! Pendant's publishing his new book, and I'm working on it! Lippman and I are gonna go to the airport on Thursday and pick him up in a limousine!
||You wanna barrow Golden Boy!
||Oh! (pushing Jerry) Do you know what this means, it's like working with Tolstoy!
||Hey ya know I read an unbelievable thing about Tolstoy the other day, did you know the original title for "War and Peace" was "War--What Is It Good For?"!
||... (looking at Jerry for a second then, mockingly nods her head back and forth) ....Ha ha ha ha.
||No, no I'm not kidding Elaine it's true, his mistress didn't like the title and insisted that he change it to "War and Peace"!
||But it's a line from that song!
||That's were they got it from!
||I'm not joking!
||You can't handle the truth! (he salutes) (imitating Jack Nicholson [a.k.a. Col. Nathan R. Jessep], from the 1992 movie A Few Good Men)
||(still in Jacks voice) I'm working on my Jack Nicholson, You can't handle the truth! (he salutes)
||What is this your mail? (She takes a magazine and starts flipping through it)
||Yeah, I grabbed it on the way out, I don't want my mother reading it.
||Oh! Your Alumni Magazine.
||Your mother reads your mail?
||What do you mean like post-cards an...?
||She doesn't open...?
||You've caught your mother opening envelopes!
||What did she say?
||I was curious! (imitating his moms voice)
||Isn't that against the law?
||Maybe I can get her locked up.
||(gasp) Hey Jerry, you're in the Alumni magazine! Listen to this Jerry Seinfeld has appeared on "David Letterman" and the "Tonight Show" and he did a pilot for NBC called "Jerry" ...that was not picked up. Georgie, how come theres not anything about you in here?
||He can't handle the truth!
||All right (slaps the magazine down on the counter) this is too much fun, I gotta get back to work. (heads for the door)
||(singing) Johnny Yuma was a rebel, Yeah! ...
||Are you all right?
||Its OK. (starts walking down the hallway)
||Yeah. Oh, here, wait wait (walks a few steps to catch up to her as she stops) Ah, maybe you could ah, use this (he searches through his jacket) Ah, here, it's a electronic organizer...
||Ah, Yeah. uh...
||Yeah, here it is... yeah.
||You know, for phone numbers, addresses, keep appointments, everything.
||It's got an alarm that beeps!
||Oh! I can't believe this, Kramer!
||I've been wanting to get one of these things! Are you sure that...
||...Are you sure you can't use this thing?
||No no no. I got all my appointments up here. (he points to his head)
||Where'd you get this?
||Well, the bank, I opened up a new account.
||Hey, did you see that whale thing on TV last night?
||I am such a Huge whale fan. These marine biologists were showin' how they communicate with each other with these squeaks and squeals, what a fish!
||It's a mammal.
||Whatever. (George looks to the table) Hey new tape recorder?
||Yeah, got it from the bank.
||(overly excited) Hey (Claps hands one time)
||(still overly excited) Who wants to have some fun!
||(once again, overly excited) Now are you just sayin' you want to have fun or do you reallllly want to have fun?!
||I really wanna have fun.
||I'm just sayin' I wanna have some fun.
||Right now there six-hundred Titleists that I got from the driving range in the trunk of my car. Why don't we drive out to Rock-a-Way and hit `em-----------(very over excited) into the ocean! Now picture this.... we find a nice sweet spot between the dunes, we take out our drivers, we tee up and (he makes a golf stroke), that ball goes sailing up into the sky holds there for a moment and then....... ..... gulp!
||Come on. Ya wanna go get some lunch?
||Yeah, let me just stop by the cash machine and I'll meet you over at the coffee shop.
||Yeah, I'm gonna get a paper.
||Keep your head down.
||Yeah! (Kramer takes a huge imaginary swing)
||(he hits a few keys and looks over at her) Cash advance... yes (hits a key) no (he looks over again) balance inquiry... no (he looks again) receipt.... no (he looks again) processing... processing... (He opens the box, pulls out his money and then looks at the woman and says) I won!
||Its Diane, Diane DeConn, from Queens college.
||(laughing a little) How are you?
||(sighs) How long has it been?
||Huh. I've been seeing you on TV you're doin' great.
||Yeah pluggin' along.
||You know I got the Alumni magazine. What ever happened to your friend George? I notice I never see his name in there.
||Well he's kind of modest.
||He was always such a goof-off. I mean did he ever get anywhere?
||Yeah? What field?
||George is a marine biologist?!
||Yeah, pretty damn good one, too!
||I can't believe it. I-I would never had thought
||Yeah... hes specializing in whales. He's working on lowering the cholesterol level, in whales all that blubber -- quite unhealthy. You know its the largest mammal on earth but as George says "they don't have to be."
||Diane DeConn? You saw Diane DeConn!
||Ahh! How'd she look?
||She looked great.
||Ahh! (closes his eyes and rolling his head back) Umh!
||She asked about you.
||She asked about me? What did- What did she say?
||George! She said George? She remembered my name. (loudly -- to a passing waitress and the rest of the restaurant) Diane DeConn remembered my name. She was the "it" girl!
||Yeah she asked for your number, I think she's gonna get in touch with you.
||(pauses for a few seconds) OK, I'm tellin' you right now - if your kiddin' around I'm not gonna be able to be your friend anymore. I'm serious about that. You got that.
||I got no problem with that.
||Good. Cause if this is a lie, if this is a joke, if this is your idea of some cute little game we're finished!
||Expect a call.
||Oh my god he's not kidding. (exhale gasp)
||Now, I should tell you that, at this point, she's under the impression that youre - a - ah
||A marine biologist.
||(pauses) A marine biologist?
||Why am I a marine biologist?
||I may have mentioned it.
||But I'm not a marine biologist!
||Yes I know that.
||Why, you don't think it's a good job?
||I didn't even know it was a job.
||Oh it's a fascinating field!
||Well what if she calls me? What am I supposed to say?! (hand hits the table)
||Algae, obviously plankton, hmhm. I don't know what else I could tell ya, ah, Oh I-I just got back from a trip to the Galapagos Islands, I was living with the turtles.
||Elaine, Lippman, and Testikov are talkin']
||We have got you in a very nice hotel, I-I don't know how you like to work, but ah, I can arrange for an office if you like.
||(Russian accent) I work in hotel.
||Away from all your little petty bickerings and interference.
||You know, Tolstoy use to write in the village square. The faces inspired him.
||(proudly) He did not need inspiration God spoke through his pen. Hu Hu Hu (pounds his fist lightly on his heart)
||Ohh, That is so true! (clutches her hands to her chest)
||Although one wonders if "War and Peace" would has been as highly acclaimed as it was, had it was published under it's original title "War---What Is It Good For?"
||Yeah. Mr. Lippman. It was *his mistress* who insisted that he call it
||"War and Peace."
||"War--What Is It Good For." (sings) Absolutely nothin' HUH! Say it Again! ahehehehe
||(spoken to Testikov) that's a song
||It (frustrated and trying to keep her from saying more)
||they-they took it from Tolstoy.
||War--What Is It Good For?
||It-no- it's just her sense of humor.
||No its not. That really is true.
||What is that noise!
||Yes it is
||No Its Not!!
||it-it-its her purse.
||Where is that noise? Its traveling up my spine! Into my Brain!
||It's coming from your purse.
||Oh It must be my new organizer.
||YesTurn it off.
||Right, I think its this
||No its the Button. Elaine
||I can not stand it!
||It's the button at the top, the top.
||OK. I dont quite know
||Will you Turn it off!
||The one at the top.
||Yeah, Im gonna work on that
||I did it for you.
||I dont know whatcha had to tell her that for. You put me in a very difficult position, Marine Biologist! I'm very uncomfortable with this whole thing.
||You know with all do respect I would think it's right up your alley.
||Well it's not up my alley! It's one thing if I make it up. I know what I'm doin, I know my alleys! You got me in the Galapagos Islands livin' with the turtles, I don't know where the hell I am.
||Well you came in the other day with all that whale stuff, the squeaking and the squealing and
||Look, why couldn't you make me an architect? You know I always wanted to pretend that I was an architect. Well I-I'm supposed to see her tomorrow, I-I-I'm gonna tell her what's goin on. I mean maybe she just likes me for me.
||Hey ya want these (He throws down the golf clubs -- kicks the bag hard) I don't want em!
||I stink! I can't play! The ball is just sitting there, Jerry, and I can't hit it! I only hit one really good ball that went way out there!
||Well what happened?
||I have no concentration!
||What, what, what's wrong with you?
||Sand, I can get rid of the sand. (he sits at the table, looking down his shirt) Look theres still some in here, it won't go away! Look I even got sand in the pockets!
||Hey come on, you're getting it all over the floor!
||(to the phone) Hello yeah yes it is really ah, ah Could you hold on a second? (to George and Kramer) Hey listen to this, some woman found an electronic organizer, my name was in it, she wants me to help her track down the owner.
||How'd she find it?
||Shes waking down the street and it hit her in the head!
||So I am walkin' along, minding my own business when all off the sudden this thing comes flying out of nowhere and clonks me right on the head.
||Yeah, So they took me to the hospital
||and they put me in this thing, that feels like a coffin, for forty-five minutes. Have you ever been in one of those things? You could go berserk in there!
||Well you have insurance...
||What is with this thing.
||(hits the organizer) I don't know, it never shuts up. So anyway, you could see why I would be interested in finding this person.
||Absolutely. You should not have to pay for that.
||(hits the organizer, picks it up and hits it on to the table -- shouting) Stop it! Stop it!
||Let me have a look at this thing.
||Ya know it was somebody told me they thought they saw that thing come out of a limousine.
||Typical rich people, using the world for their personal garbage can.
||Boy am I lucky your name came up. I just pushed a button.
||I would like to know what my names doin in this creep's organizer to begin with.
||Who do I know who would have even been in a limousine yesterday anyway. Uhh-O h-owow!
||Wha-- Oh, hey.
||Hey, "great" organizer you gave me.
||Oh, you liked it huh.
||It wouldn't stop beeping, in the car so Testikov, through it out the window.
||Oh. (continuing to itch and scratch from the sand)
||I transferred everything in there. I threw out my old book. I'm lost now, Kramer.
||What, what is it?
||The sand, it's everywhere! (blows on his arm)
||OK I'll see you later.
||Oh, there you are!
||There you are!
||So what do you have to say for yourself?
||So what do you have to say for yourself?
||Why should I have anything for say for myself?
||"War-- What is it good for?"!
||A-Ahahahahah. Who told you?
||A-hu hu hu hu. Yuri Testikov, the Russian writer! Hellooo!
||You told Testikov, (Elaine nods) that Tolstoy wanted to name his book "War-- What Is IT Good For?"?
||Uh-hu. And do you know what happened?
||Can I take a guess?
||Oh I don't know, he threw your organizer out the window?
||What, how did you know that?
||Because I know who has it.
||(gasps) How did you find it?
||Because the woman who got hit in the head with it found my name, called me up, and we met!
||(gasps) Where is it, give it to me!
||I don't have it!
||Because she's not returning it until she gets the money back for the hospital bill.
||But I didn't do it. Testikov did it, he should pay for it!
||How much is Testikov getting from Pendant for this book?
||Well that's a start.
||Then of course with evolution, the octopus lost the nostrils and took on the more familiar look that we know today.
||Yeah, but if you still look closely you can see ah, a little bump where the nose use to be. huhuhuhu.
||But enough about fish, huhuhu. I can discuss other things you know, ah architecture. Huhu. (makes a wide gesture with his arms)
||You know what room Testikov's in?
||Yeah, 308. Oh, I'm crazy for doing this!
||Well, you want your organizer back don't you?
||Why are you so interested -- you want to take her out?
||Hey you know when Superman saves someone no one asks if he's trying to hit on her!
||Well, you're not Superman.
||Well you're not Lois Lane.
||Oh. Listen, you got the tape-recorder.
||Yeah I got it. You sure you want to do this? (hands Elaine the tape recorder.)
||Yeah I gotta get Testikov on tape. If this woman ends up in the "New England Journal Of Medicine" I'm not gonna pay for it.
||Oh, here she comes.
||Elaine, this is Corinne.
||Hi, (sighs) you got the organizer?
||All right lets go. We'll meet you back down here in ten minutes, hopefully with the money.
||Your parents must be so proud of you, George.
||Oh, they're busting!
||What are those people doing over there?
||(In a loud and cranky voice) What, Come in - come in - Come in Miss Benes! That is if you can spare a minute from your busy schedule! And you bring guest for my entertainment?
||Um, yes this is my friend Jerry. Um, he accompanied me, ya know (clears throat), single women in a big city can be dangerous, so
||Yeah. Th-That's why I where these sneakers, in case of any trouble -- Zip, I'm gone. (makes a running motion with both arms and his right foot)
||Yeah, Yeah. The sneakers. All the Americans with the sneakers. Always running from something. Ya ya, well Sit, stop running, Ehh. two minutes, I give you latest manuscript!
||Oh! Rimsky -- great great book if I may say so sir. I almost read the whole thing.
||Hmm. (she nods in agreement)
||If you can't thing off, I'll have to ask you to leave.
||I'm waitin for two people! (takes a drag on the cigarette)
||Well you can wait for them outside.
||Yeah, (she blows smoke out as she speaks -- it rises as in front of her) I guess I'd better. I wouldn't want to take any attention away from the hookers!
||All right, All right. Out, Out.
||Whatever you say, Cro..w-well!
||What's going on over here?
||There is a beached whale, she's dying.
||Is anyone here a marine biologist?
||Here is latest draft. I see you next week. Same time, same day. (smacks the manuscript into Elaines hand) On time please.
||It was nice meeting you
||youre a real pleasure. (Jerry is being sarcastic)
||Ya ya. (wipes his nose with a handkerchief)
||Uh-Oh-ah, by the way Mr. Testikov um, do you remember the other day when we were in the limo and ah, my organizer started making noise and you threw it out the window?
||(quietly) yes. How could I forget? heehe.
||( laughs) Well um, would you believe that it actually, hit somebody in the head.
||Right in the head! (leans in and points at Testikov)
||Boing! Hehe hehe. (makes a hand gesture to her forehead and away)
||(Shouting) What is that noise!
||Oh thats nothing. Um and anyway um
||Whats going on Huh! (he grabs Elaines purse) That Noise!
||No, No that's my purse!
||No, get-get off my purse!
||Agh, its recorder!
||No that's Radio!
||Ha! (he clicks the player off) You are spying on me!
||Come on! Save the whale! You gotta do it!
||Save the whale George... for me.
||So I started to walk into the water. I won't lie to you boys, I was terrified! But I pressed on -- and as I made my way passed the breakers a strange calm came over me. I-I don't know if it was divine intervention or the kinship of all living things but I tell you Jerry at that moment I was a Marine Biologist!
||George Ive just reading this thing in the paper, it's unbelievable!
||I know I was just telling them the story.
||Well come on George, finish the story.
||The sea was angry that day my friends like an old man trying to send back soup in a deli!
||I got about fifty-feet out and suddenly, the great beast appeared before me. I tell ya he was ten stories high if he was a foot. As if sensing my presence he let out a great bellow. I said, "Easy big fella!" And then, as I watched him struggling I realized, that something was obstructing its breathing. From where I was standing I could see directly into the eye of the great fish!
||Well then, what did you do next?
||Well then, from out of nowhere, a huge tidal wave lifted me, tossed like a cork and I found myself right on top of him, (ELAINE gasps quietly Ahhhh) face to face with the blow-hole. I-I, I could barely see from the waves crashing down upon me but, I knew something was there so I reached my hand in, felt around and pulled out the obstruction!
||What is that a Titleist?
||(Silently squinches his mouth and nods at Kramer)
||A hole in one eh.
||Well the-the crowd must have gone wild!
||Ohh yes, yes. Yes Jerry they were all over me. It was like Rocky 1, Hm. Diane came up to me, threw her arms around me
||kissed me. We both had tears streaming down our faces. I never saw anyone so beautiful. It was at that moment that I decided to tell her that, I was not a marine biologist.
||Wow! What'd she say?
||Told me to "Go to hell!" and I took the bus home.
||All right lets go.
||What, are you in a bad mood?
||Ahhh got my laundry back.
||Ohhh! Golden Boy?
||He didn't make it.
||I'm sorry. (pats him on the arm)
||Yea. (pulls at the t-shirt) This is Golden Boy's son Baby Blue.
||(to George) What's with you?
||Sand. It's everywhere
