suffocate in there . Your lucky you have any doors at all . You know when I

was in the army ...... Hey Costanza . What's that your eating over there ? It

looks pretty tasty .

at it . I want a little taste . Come on , come on . Pass it down here . That's

a good boy . Okay . What's in this thing ?

dripping . The pita pocket . (phone rings)What is it Watson ? A lost and found

something that's there tough luck . You got a drip on your mouth by the way .

George : You know a lost and found could be a good idea .

. We're not running a pawn shop here .

tribute all this to the calzone .

George : Yeah . I am like a drug dealer . I got the guy hooked . I am having

lunch at his desk everyday this week . He doesn't make a move without me .

It's very exciting .

Jerry : With you two guys at the helm . The last piece of the puzzle is in

place.

George : So let me ask you a question about the tip jar . I had a little

thing with the calzone guy this week . I go to drop a buck in the tip jar and

just as I am about to drop it in he looks the other way . And then when I am

leaving he gives me this look think thanks for nothing . I mean if they don't

notice it what's the point .

Jerry : So you don't make it a habit of giving to the blind .

George : Not bills .

Jerry : So George . Remember when I told you Nikki gets whatever she wants .

We are at the movies last night . It's sold out . Nikki goes and talks to the

manager . Right in .

George : Beautiful women . You know they could get away with murder . You

never she any of them lift anything over three pounds . They get whatever they

want whenever they want it . You can't stop them .

Jerry : She's like a beautiful Godzilla .

George : Without thousands of fleeing Japanese .

Jerry and Kramer at his apartment

Kramer : Hey buddy .

Jerry : What the hell is all this ?

Kramer : I am looking for quarters for the dryer .

Jerry : Why can't you do this on your table ?

Kramer : Because I don't have a table .

Elaine walks in

Elaine : Hey .

Jerry : Hey . So how was "Blame it on the Rain ?"

Elaine : Huh . Yeah thanks for getting us tickets too .

Jerry : Oh !! Let me ask you a question . Was the movie part of the bet ?

Kramer leaves

Elaine : No . We were both in the mood for one .

Jerry : You know Elaine , It is not my way to intrude on the personal lives of

close fiends ....

Elaine : Oh is that so .

Jerry : Absolutely . But I feel I must inform you that what happened last

night was more than a simple bet .

Elaine : What are you talking about ?

Jerry : Come on . Dustin Hoffman in Star Wars . He made a bet he knew he was

going to lose just to take you to dinner

Elaine : If he wanted to ask me out why didn't he just ask me.

Jerry : Because if he doesn't ask you out he doesn't get rejected . He has

found a dating loop hole .

Elaine : I don't buy it.

Kramer walks in with more change

Jerry : So what happened after the movie ?

Elaine : Nothing . He walked me home .

Jerry : To the door ?

Elaine : Yeah .

Jerry : That's a date .

Elaine : No it's not .

Elaine : That's just because your a jackass .

Kramer : Ah !! I found a quarter . Anybody want there clothes heated up ?

Jerry : No , no .

Elaine : No , no .

Jerry : So how did you leave it with him ?

Elaine : I am supposed to meet him to pick up your cigars .

Jerry : That's another loop hole . That's two dates without asking you out .

Elaine : Your crazy !

Jerry : Crazy like a man .

George : And I always take care of my Pisano's . So here is a little

something.

( drop in tip and worker looks the other way , so George decides to take it

out and try again only to get caught )

Worker : Hey ! You steal my money !!

George : No no . That's not what I was trying to do .

Worker : I know what you try to do . Get out . Don't ever come back ever .

George and Mr. Steinbrenner at Yankee Stadium

George : I got your calzones Mr. Steinbrenner .

Mr. Steinbrenner : Beautiful . I am starving George .

George : I thought tomorrow maybe we'd try a little corn beef .

Mr. Steinbrenner : Corn beef . I don't think so . It is a little fatty .

George : How about Chinese ?

Mr. Steinbrenner : Uhhhhh . No . Too many containers . Big mess , big mess .

Too sloppy .I want to stick with the calzones from Pisano's . That's the

ticket .

George : I just thought it would be nice . A little variety .

Mr. Steinbrenner : No , no , no . George let me tell you something . When I

find something I like I stick with it . From 1973 to 1982 I ate the exact same

lunch everyday . Turkey chili in a bowl made out of bread . Bread bowl George

. First you eat the chili then you eat the bowl . There's nothing more

satisfying than looking down after lunch and seeing nothing but a table .

Todd walking Elaine to her apartment

Elaine : Thanks for the dinner .

Todd : Well I had to give these cigars and we were both hungry .

Elaine : Hey Todd . Let me ask you a question . Um . Was this whole date thing

Elaine : Oh all right . Okay well , goodnight .

Todd : Hey , if your not doing anything Saturday do you want to meet somewhere

on ) Hey George hey .

Kramer leaves

George : Well this is bad . I am really in a bad situation now .

Jerry : so what is Steinbrenner going to do if he doesn't get his calzones ?

George : What's he going to do ? That's exactly the point . Nobody knows what

this guy is capable of ! He fires people like it is a bodily function .

Jerry : Why don't you get someone else from the office to go get Pisano's for

you ?

George : All right .

Newman : And a slice of pepperoni pizza and a large soda and three times a

week I will require a canolie .

George : That's a little steep don't you think ?

to see him when he's hungry .

George : All right , all right .

meals .
