Storyline

Elaine drags Jerry to a birthday dinner for one of her friends where he meets an attractive woman. He promptly forgets her name and refuses to ask Elaine who she is but remembers where she works. Jerry's parents are in town to go to a family wedding and his Dad suggests he stake-out the lobby around lunchtime. George tags along but they can't quite seem to get their stories straight. Elaine hears about it making them both uncomfortable. Written by garykmcd

JERRY's monologue: There's something about a cheque that, to a man, is not masculine. I don't know exactly what it is... I think to a man, a cheque is like a note from your mother that says ''I don't have any money, but if you'll contact these people, I'm sure they'll stick up for me... If you just trust me this one time I don't have any money but I have these... I wrote on these; is this of any value at all?'' _______________________

JERRY: (To Vanessa) So, you're a lawyer... VANESSA: Sagman, Bennet, Robbins, Oppenheim and Taft. JERRY: (To himself, quickly) Sagman, Bennet, Robbins, Oppenheim and Taft. Sagman, Bennet, Robbins, Oppenheim and Taft...

_______________________

JERRY: "Quone"? No, I'm afraid that I'm going to have to challenge that. HELEN: ...32... KRAMER: No, you don't have to challenge that. That's a word. That's a *definite* word. JERRY: I am challenging... KRAMER: Quone: to quone something.

_______________________

ELAINE: Couldn't agree more. JERRY: Good. ELAINE: Good. JERRY: Good. ELAINE: Great! JERRY: Great? Where do you get "great"?
