In The Bris Read the script of The Bris Download the full epiosde video of The Bris Discuss The Bris episode script, the author writes:

KRAMER

Don't believe them when they tell you it doesn't hurt. It hurts
bad. It hurts really bad. Imagine, this will be his first memory.
Of someone yanking the hat off his little man. I know you love
your baby, but what kind of perverts would stand idly by while a
stranger rips the cover off his 9-iron and then serve a catered
lunch?

This is one of my favorite episodes and I have watched it many times in syndication however this is definitely not what Kramer says in that scene. Does anyone know if they changed it for syndication? (if that's even possible???) Because this transcription is nowhere near correct. I am going off memory and will post when I see the episode what the exact line is but here's how I'm pretty sure it goes:

Imagine this will be his firt memory of his parents just standing there, while some butcher cuts off a piece of his manhood and then serves a catered lunch.

I disagree with you, Joe. I definitely recall the "rips the cover off his 9-iron" remark.

After looking into this further, Joe and slcstevo32 are correct. The correct line is:

We're not talking about a manicure. Imagine, this is going to be his first memory. Of his parents just standing there while some stranger cutting off a piece of his manhood and then serves a catered lunch.

Whoever transcribed the episode either took some editing liberties, or was making it up along the way. I have updated the script. Thanks for pointing this out.

Well, there a NUMBER of mistakes in the scripts - too many to count. There are typos, misquotes and outright omissions. Try finding a script of The Old Man Read the script of  The Old Man Download the full epiosde video of  The Old Man Discuss  The Old Man that has the dialogue between Sid Fields and Ben Cantwell where they discuss Goiter Woman (Mrs. Oliver) and how serving tea with cream without asking is a turnoff to Sid!
