TV Quote of the Day (‘Seinfeld,’ In Which George and Jerry Debate a Marked-Down Xmas Gift for Elaine)

George [played by Jason Alexander]: “You think she would care about the red dot?”

Jerry [played by Jerry Seinfeld]: “It's hard to say.”

George: “I don't even think she'd notice it. Can you see it?”

Jerry: “Well, I can see it.”

George: “Yeah, but you know where it is.”

Jerry: “Well, what do you want me to do? Not look at it?”

George: “Pretend you didn't know it was there. Can you see it?”

Jerry: “It's hard to pretend because I know where it is.”

George: “Well, just take an overview. Can't you just take an overview?”

Jerry: “You want me to take an overview?”

George: “Please.”

Jerry: “I see a very cheap man holding a sweater trying to get away with something. That's my overview.”—Seinfeld, Season 3, Episode 12, “The Red Dot,” original air date Dec. 11, 1991, teleplay by Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld, directed by Tom Cherones
