[Music from the movie “Beaches” playing on TV in the background)… “You’ll never know ….]

Gennice: [Crying] (sob sob)

Jerry: [To himself] Now what am I supposed to do here? Shall I go over there? It’s not like somebody died. It’s “Beaches” for god’s sake. If she was sitting next to me I’d put my arm around her. I can’t be making a big move like going all the way over there. I can’t. I won’t.

[Next day, Jerry and George enter Jerry’s apartment]

Jerry: She calls me this morning and tells me she’s upset I didn’t console her. I mean it was “Beaches” for god’s sake. What, what do you do in a situation like that?

George: Where were you?

Jerry: I was sitting on the chair. She was over here on the couch.

George: Well you know, if you were sitting right next to her you’d have to console her no matter what.

Jerry: Of course.

George: When you’re talking about a movie like “Beaches”, moving from the chair to the couch , . . . that’s quite a voyage.

Jerry: yeah,

the star of the show.

Kramer: Bette Midler is going to be in the park today? Yeeee. Jerry, don’t tease me.

George: I didn’t know you were such a Bette Midler fan.

Kramer: So maybe I’ll go down there and watch, uh? She’ll be there, ,maybe.

George: Gennice palying today?

Jerry: Yeah, maybe.

Kramer: Who’s Gennice?

Jerry: That’s the understudy. I’m dating her.

Kramer: Oh, uh, is this uh, Bette Midler’s understudy?

Jerry: Yeah.

Kramer: Oh, understudies are a very shifty bunch. The substitute teachers of the theater world.

Jerry: I’m glad she’s an understudy. I don’t have to avoid going back stage and having to think of something to say.

George: Going backstage is the worst. Especially when they stink. You know that’s a real problem.

Jerry: Just once I would like to tell someone they stink. You know what? I doidn’t like the show. I didn’t like you. It just really stunk. The whole thing…real bad. Stinkaroo. Thanks for the tickets though.

[Ruby’s Nail Parlor  – Korean language in quotes ]

Ruby: You late.

Elaine: I know I know. I didn’t have change for the bus and they don’t give change in this city. So they threw me off the bus

Ruby: “That’s a shame”. You’ll have to wait for Lotus now.

Elaine: How long do you think this will take. I have a millllioooon things to do.

Ruby: “Mustn’t keep the princess waiting. Princess in a big hurry.” “No change for bus” “Poor princess.”

Elaine: What?, uh?

Ruby: Nothing, won’t be long.

Lotus: “Princess wants a manicure.”

Sunny: “Oh lucky me.”

Lotus: “Oh, you got the princess.”

Elaine: What is so funny?

Ruby: …tell knock-knock joke.

[Baseball diamond in the park]

Elaine: The Korean women were talking about me. I think they were calling me a dog.

Jerry: How would you know? You don’t speak Korean.

Elaine: Because this woman came in with a dog and Ruby called the dog the same word they used when they were pointing at me…ge ge ge

Kramer: You know, maybe in Korean “dog” isn’t an insult. Could be like the word “fox” to us. Oh, she’s a DOG!

Jerry: Why don’t you go to another nail shop?

Elaine: Because they’re the best Jerry, the best. Look. Maybe I’m just being paranoid.

Jerry: What you need is a translator to go in the shop with you and tell you what they’re saying.

Elaine: Yeah, who speaks Korean?

Jerry: You know who speaks Korean?

Elaine: No, who?

Jerry: George’s father.

Elaine: You gotta’ be kidding me. How does he speak Korean?

Jerry: He used to go there a lot on business.

Elaine: What did he do?

Jerry: He sold religious articles the statues of Jesus, the virgin Mary, that were manufactured in Korea.

Elaine: Uh,

Jerry: George, does your father speak Korean?

George: Yeah, he once bumped into reverend Yung Sun Moon.

Jerry: Oh, hi Gennice.

Gennice: Hi Jerry.

Jerry: This is George, this is Kramer.

Gennice: Nice to meet you.

Jerry: Playing today?

Gennice: No. I’m on the bench today.

Jerry: They really stick to that understudy rule.

Kramer: So she’s coming?

Gennice: Oh, yeah, she’ll be here. . . .(DROPS HOT DOG) Oh no, my frankfurter, my frankfurter fell (sob sob sob sob) . It was really good. I can’t believe that I dropped it. (sob sob sob sob)

Jerry: It’s okay…it’s just a hot dog, (still sobbing) everything is going to be okay.

Gennice: No it (sob) was really good.

[Crowd yelling – Bette arrives]

Kramer: Look it’s Bette It’s Bette! Ah, Ah, AH, . . . Bette, psst, hi.

Bette: Hi.

Kramer: Uh, I just want to say I think you’re wonderful.

Bette: Uh, thank you.

Kramer: Yeah, I’ve seen you in everything you’ve done.

Bette: Really?

Kramer: Anything I can get you? Water? They got ice over here.

Bette: What flavours do they have?

Kramer: Chocolate, Lemon, and uh, Cherry.

Bette: How about Pineapple?

Kramer: Pineapple, sure, alright, I’ll be right back.

[First Italian ice cream seller]

Ice Cream Vendor #1: No pineapple. Just Cherry, Lemon and Tutti-Frutti

Kramer: Oh, uh, uh. [Leaves]

[Monk’s]

Elaine: Anyway, Mr. Costanza, what I want you to do is to come to the shop with me and tell me what they are saying. You do speak Korean?

Frank: I once talked to the reverend Yung Son Moon. He bought two Jesus statues from me. He’s a hell of a nice guy.

Elaine: uh, ha.

Frank: Ever see that face on him? Like a Biiig apple pie.

Elaine: Yeah, yeah. Uh, uh listen Mr. Costanza, if uh, if you do this for me I’ll get you a manicure, I’ll pay for it. Or you can get a pedicure if you want.

Frank: No one is touching my feet. Between you and me, Elaine, I think I’ve got a foot odour problem.

[Baseball diamond- Bette at bat]

George: I watched “Beaches” on cable last night. …(wings?) … Give me a break.

Bette: Get some talent then you can mouth off.

Umpire: Strike three.

Bette: What? Are you blind?

Umpire: What?

Bette: Nothing, nothing.

[Monk’s]

Frank: I had an affair with a Korean woman.

Elaine: Uh, Mr. Costanza, I …

Frank: No, I feel I need to unburden myself. I loved her very deeply. But the clash of cultures was too much. Her family would not accept me.

Elaine: Mr. Costanza, I, …

Frank: Maybe it was because I refused to take off my shoes. Again, the foot odour problem. Her father would look at me and say, ” eno enoa juang “. Which means, “this guy – this is not my kind of guy”.

[On Stree]

Ice Cream Vendor #2: Sure I got Pineapple.

[Kramer runs back with it]

Bette: Move it in. Move in everybody. Get your shrimp here. Shrimp on special today!

Jerry: Come on George, just loosen up.

[George hits one ]

Jerry: Come on George.

Kramer: I GOT THE PINEAPPLE. : I GOT THE PINEAPPLE.

Jerry: [to George] Keep going.

George: Aaaaaah

[George runs into Bette (trivia- but misses home plate)]
