Jerry: I cannot believe Lindsay's still seeing you after that "Breakfast at Tiffany's" thing.
George: I think she finds my stupidity charming
Jerry: As we all do.
George: Yeah, anyway, she's uh, having some kind of a family lunch, I'll swing by after.
Jerry: Oh, so you're gonna meet the mother?
George: Yeah, I'll zip in, "How do you do?" Zip out. She'll love me.
Jerry: You're good with the mothers.
George: Y'know, I'm better with the mothers than I am with the daughters.
Mrs. E: Oh, George, it is so nice to finally meet you. And I'm sorry we've kept Lindsay so long.
George: Oh, no, no, not at all. No, I have always felt that the most important thing in the world is spending time with family.
Mrs. E: Oh? Are you and your family close?
George: Very close, yes. Almost painfully close.
Lindsay: Mother, I'm going to walk Nana and Aunt Phyllis to the elevator. George, do you mind waiting just one more minute?
George: Mind? Why would I mind? I would love to wait! Nana, nice to see you. Ni-ni-ni-ni-NANA! Aunt Phyllis, always a pleasure. What a pleasure! Hey, let's do this again real soon. I had fun, huh?
Mrs. E: Can I offer you something to eat?
George: Oh, no no no, I'm fine. Let me help you with these dishes, huh?
Mrs. E: Oh no, George, you don't have to...
George: No, I know I don't have to, I want to.
Mrs. E: George, you are such a gentleman.
George: I would argue if I could, Mrs. Enright. Here we go, all right.
Mrs. E: Oh...
George: Mrs. Enright! Mrs. Enright!
Jerry: So let me get this straight. You find yourself in the kitchen. You see an éclair in the receptacle, and you think to yourself, "What the hell, I'll just eat some trash."
George: No, no, no, no, no. It was not trash!
Jerry: Was it in the trash?
Jerry: Then it was trash.
George: It wasn't down in, it was sort of on top.
Jerry: But it was in the cylinder!
George: Above the rim.
Jerry: Adjacent to refuse, is refuse.
George: It was on a magazine! And it still had the doyly on.
Jerry: Was it eaten?
George: One little bite.
Jerry: Well, that's garbage.
George: But I know who took the bite. It was her aunt!
Jerry: Well, you, my friend, have crossed the line that divides man and bum. You are now a bum.
George: You call this coffee?
Man: Hey! What the hell was that?!
George: I'm sorry! I'm terribly sorry! I- I-
Man: Clean that up!
George: Oh, sure. Of course. Um, uh, could you hold these? For just a second, just a second. Here you go, now don't worry about a thing. It's gonna be fine. Here we go. Look at this shine.
George: Look at this sparkle.
Mrs. E! Mrs. Enright! Mrs. Enright!
George: No, Lindsay, I had accidentally spilled coffee on the gentleman's windshield. Why would I do that? I have a job! Well, did she see a squeegee? Well, you're not going to make a dime without a squeegee. That's right, that's right. Just tell your mother it was all a big misunderstanding. You won't regret it. Okay, I'll see you later. Buh-bye.
Jerry: Strike two!
George: You think I'm going down?
Jerry: You're behind in the count.
George: I know.
