Seinfeld Quotes...

"THE ENGAGEMENT"


"I'll tell you what your problem is... You brought your queen out too fast. What do you think, she's one of these feminists looking to get out of the house? Nah, the queen is old-fashioned, likes to stay home, cook, take care of her man, make sure he feels good."
- George, playing chess, in "The Engagement"

"No we're not. We're not men."
"We come up with all these stupid little reasons to break up with these women."
"I know, I know! That's what I do. That's what I do!"
"Are we going to be sitting here when we're sixty like two idiots?"
"We should be having dinner with our sons when we're sixty."

"Yeah, like I don't know that I'm pathetic."
"Why can't I be normal?"

"I had a very interesting lunch with George Costanza today."
"Really?"
"We were talking about our lives, and we both kind of realized we're kids. We're not men."
"So then you asked yourselves, 'Isn't there something more to life?'"
"Yes, we did."
"Yeah, well let me clue you in on something... There isn't."
"There isn't?"
"Absolutely not. I mean, what are you thinking about, Jerry, marriage? Family? They're prisons! Man-made prisons. You're doing time. You get up in the morning, she's there. You go to sleep at night, she's there. It's like you gotta ask permission to use the bathroom. 'Is it alright if I use the bathroom now?!' And you can forget about watching TV while you're eating."
"I can?"
"Oh yeah. You know why? Because it's dinnertime, and you know what you do at dinner?"
"What?"
"You talk about your day. 'How was your day today? Did you have a good day today or a bad day today? Well, what kind of day was it? Well, I don't know, how about you, how was your day?'"
"Boy."
"It's sad, Jerry. It's a sad state of affairs."
"I'm glad we had this talk."
"Oh, you have no idea."

"Get the hell outta here. He's getting married?"
"Yes."
"To a woman?"
- Estelle and Frank Costanza, in "The Engagement"
 
"And she said yes?"
