gs: Wayne Knight (Newman) Linda Cash (Gwen) Linda Kash (Gwen) Christopher Darga (Driver) Jerry Sroka (Todd) Marlee Matlin (Laura) Veralyn Jones (Renee) Dylan Haggerty (Young Man) Bret Anthony (Teen)

Jerry is smitten with a line judge at the US Open, but after he gets her attention, he finds out she is deaf. Elaine has a problem not communicating with a limo driver. George wants to use Jerry's girlfriend to read the lips of his ex-girlfriend to find out what she is saying about him. While she is reading the lips, Kramer does the translation, that gets George in more trouble. Kramer becomes a ball man at the Open, when Monica Seles returns to tennis.

There is a spelling error in this script. It's "Dag Hammarskjold Plaza".

If there were a thread noting spelling errors in the scripts, it would be the longest on this site - by far! Smile Not to mention outright dialogue errors and dialogue credited to the wrong character.

That said, DON'T blame Stan. Notice that these scripts were "transcribed" by various and sundry sources.....

I always thought they missed a great opportunity for a classic "That's a shame". When Kramer knocks over Monica Seles at the end of the episode, Jerry Says something like "And thus ends the great ball man expirement". I think it would have been perfect for George to say "...that's a shame".

Probably my second favorite episode, so many great scenes.

"Holy cow it's a scorcher. Boy I bet you that guy can cover a lot of court. Hey buddy, they got a new invention. It's called a napkin."

Gwen: It's not you, it's me.
George: You're giving me the "it's not you, it's me" routine? I invented "it's not you, it's me". Nobody tells me it's them not me, if it's anybody it's me.
Gwen: All right, George, it's you.
George: You're *damn* right it's me.
Gwen: I was just trying to...
George: I know what you were trying to do. Nobody does it better than me.
Gwen: I'm sure you do it very well.
George: Yes well unfortunately you'll never get the chance to find out.

George: (Holding his drink up to his mouth) Oh my gosh, I just had a great idea. She could come to the party tomorrow and read Gwen's lips for me.
Jerry: (Puts his hand over his mouth) What?
George: (Puts nuts into his mouth, and in the process covers his mouth) We bring her to the party, and she can tell me what Gwen is saying about me.
Jerry: (Holds his drink up to his mouth) She's not a novelty act, George. Where you hire her out for weddings and bar mitzvas.
George: (Puts his hands on his face, rubbing his eyes) Look. It's a skill, just like juggling. She probably enjoys showing it off.
Jerry: (Puts his napkin over his mouth) I don't know George. I'm not sure about this.
George: (Puts his arms in the air, stretching, and covers his mouth with an arm) Could you ask her, just ask her. If she says no, case closed.
Jerry: (Puts his hand on his chin over his mouth) All right.
Jerry: Uh Laura, George was wondering if...
Laura: Sure. I'll do it.

Then of course the lip reading thing with "sleep together" instead of "sweep together". Laughing

Puffy Shirt, no one but you cares about your favorite quotes and parts. Keep it to yourself. I'm looking to read interesting notes, not a recap of your favorite parts, stop wasting yours and everyone's time.

Alright we've solved the mystery of where Dick Cheney hides - on this board under the name "Democrat".

Nah, I think you're giving FemoScat too much credit. Dick Cheney's pure evil, but he's not stupid. HemmoroidFat is so stupid that he doesn't realise the only way the quotes would be soooo annoying is if he wasted his time reading them, thus negating his last attempt at an insult. In fact, I bet he doesn't even get what i just said. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

"So what time are you gonna pick me up Jerry?" (deaf girl)
"Six, six is good" (Jerry)
What deaf girl hears:
Sex, Sex is good.

When they are doing the lip reading at the party, its absolutely 3 stooges, abbott and costello and pure slapstick all in one.

I love when George is yelling at Gwen and Kramer is still interpreting the lip reading.

"cut it"
