Man Hands Question

I love this episode. I was looking at the script (Bizarro Jerry) on this site and was viewing the scene when Jerry and Gillian were at the restaurant. The script has this quote:

Well, then at least drink your beer.. [she's opening the bottle--brief closeup on hands]


[to self] Oh. Twist off..

My question is this: Are these scripts 100% accurate? My wife and I always thought Jerry replied with..

"[to self] not a twist off"

therefore humorously telling us that she is twisting off a top that is meant for a bottle opener.

Any thoughts?

The scripts were written by non-English speaking people, who've never even seen the show.

No, the scripts are not 100% accurate. I believe many of the scripts are purely written by fans. A PERFECT example of this, is in "The Deal" when Jerry is trying to buy something for Elaine's birthday and George suggests the bust of Nelson Rockerfeller, Jerry says "Too gubernatorial" where on the script the person wrote "Jerry: Too Goobenatonal (?)" where gubernatorial isn't a part of the fan's vocabulary.

Then on that same script, where they were wondering about the kiss goodnight it says

Jerry: Tough one. You're call.
Elaine: It's brug-wa (?)

Heh, the person who wrote the "script" had no idea what Elaine said either. Heck, I don't know what she said.

The word is "bourgeois," you dumb ignoramus.

Uh-oh, listen to this. This is not good. Listen to these symptoms for rabies: anxiety, irritability. I got those! I'm irritable!
