ELAINE: Thank you very much.
GEORGE: [walks in and closes the door] Hey, what's goin' on?
ELAINE: I just bought Jerry's couch for $50 dollars.
JERRY: [to George] So did you bring the lease? [George takes
the lease from his inside pocket and hands it to Jerry] All
right, ghee, three years, that kinda seems like a long time.
GEORGE: Oh, Jerry Jerry Jerry Jerry Jerry [said very quickly],
listen, if, if you are feeling uncomfortable about this at
all, at all: do not feel like you have to take it.
GEORGE: If you're having second thoughts, if you didn't want
don't worry about it because uh, ya know, I, I...I could take
it, ya know. [said with a "for-instance-look" on his face]
JERRY: You could take it? You want it?
GEORGE: No, I don't want it. I want it, if you don't want it.
JERRY: So you do want it.
GEORGE: No I, I want it if you don't want it!
JERRY: You just said, you wanted it!
GEORGE: No, I'm saying, if a situation arose in which you
didn't want it, I might take it.
JERRY: [picks up the lease and hands it to George] So take it.
GEORGE: [refuses to take the lease from Jerry; Elaine looks
worried] How can I take it?!
JERRY: How can I take it?
GEORGE: It's your apartment!
JERRY: How can I want it now, if you want it?
ELAINE: Excuse me, uuhh, I don't mean to cause any trouble
here, but George, if you take it, can I take your place?
GEORGE: Yes, but I am not taking it.
JERRY: I...am not taking it. [drops the lease demonstratively]
ELAINE: Well, one of you better damn well take it!
