Jerry: Speaking of having it all ... Where were you?
George: I went to the beach. (Jerry and Elaine exchange looks)
Jerry: Oh, the beach.
George: It's not working, Jerry. It's just not working.
Jerry: What is it that isn't working?
George: Why did it all turn out like this for me? I had so much promise. I was personable, I was bright. Oh, maybe not academically speaking, but ... I was perceptive. I always know when someone's uncomfortable at a party.
Jerry: Gotta napkin over there?
George: It became very clear to me sitting out there today, that every decision I've ever made, in my entire life, has been wrong. My life is the complete opposite of everything I wanted to be. Every instinct I have, in every aspect, be it something to wear, something to eat ... It's all been wrong.
Waitress: Tuna on toast, coleslaw, cup of coffee.
George: Yeah. No, no, no, wait a minute, I always have tuna on toast. Nothing's ever worked out for me with tuna on toast. I want the complete opposite of tuna on toast – chicken salad on rye, untoasted with a side of potato salad and a cup of tea.
Elaine: Well, there's no telling what can happen from this.
Jerry: You know chicken salad is not the opposite of tuna. Salmon is the opposite of tuna, 'cos salmon swim against the current, and the tuna swim with it.
George: Good for the tuna.
Elaine: Ah, George, you know, that woman just looked at you.
George: So what? What am I supposed to do?
Elaine: Go talk to her.
George: Elaine, bald men with no jobs, and no money, who live with their parents don't approach strange women.
Jerry: Well here's your chance to try the opposite. Instead of tuna salad and being intimidated by women, chicken salad and going right up to them.
George: Yeah, I should do the opposite, I should.
Jerry: If every instinct you have is wrong, then the opposite would have to be right.
George: Yes, I will do the opposite. I used to sit here and do nothing, and regret it for the rest of the day, so now I will do the opposite, and I will do something!
George: Excuse me, I couldn't help but notice that you were looking in my direction.
Victoria: Oh, yes I was. You just ordered the same exact lunch as me.
George: My name is George. I'm unemployed and I live with my parents.
Victoria: I'm Victoria. Hi.
Victoria: Are you growing a beard?
George: Why shave every day? It just grows right back.
Victoria: I guess ...
George: I'm afraid I'm just not interested in how I present myself. If those kind of superficialities are important to you, this probably isn't gonna work.
Victoria: Hey watch it, he just cut you off! Did you see that?!
George: Take it easy. Take it easy. It's not the end of the world.
Man 1: Hey baby, how about a little tongue action, huh?
Man 2: Yeah, stick your tongue down his throat!
Victoria: What are we gonna do? Shall we just move?
George: That won't be necessary. Shut your traps and stop kicking the seats! We're trying to watch the movie! And if I have to tell you again, we're gonna take it outside and I'm gonna show you what it's like! You understand me? Now, shut your mouths or I'll shut'em for ya, and if you think I'm kidding, just try me. Try me. Because I would love it!
Victoria: Are you sure you don't wanna come up, I mean, it's only nine thirty.
George: I don't think we should. We really don't know each other very well.
Victoria: Who are you, George Costanza?
George: I'm the opposite of every guy you've ever met.
