Gregg Kavet & Andy Robin
(Yankee Stadium, Conference Room)
A group of staff, including George, are gathered round the table.
There's a bunch of food on the table. Most people have a small plate with
a few salad leaves on it in front of them. George is picking shrimp off a
platter, dipping them in some sort of sauce, and stuffing his face with
them, about as fast as he can manage.
Well, if the big man wants a new scoreboard,
I don't wanna be the one to tell him no.
No-one in the park is gonna be able
to see it from there.
(through a mouthful of shrimp) Well,
why don't we just put a monitor in his skybox?
Hey George, the ocean called. They're
running outta shrimp.
Everyone at the table starts laughing uproariously at Reilly's
joke. George looks upset, and barely forces half a sick smile past his mouthful
George drives along. He's fuming at Reilly's dig.
(angry, to himself) The ocean called.
Running outta shrimp. Outta shrimp! (a thought occurs)
Oh! Yes! That's what I shoulda said!
(frustrated shout) Dammit!
(New York Health & Racquet Club)
George and Jerry come along a corridor. They're carrying bags
and paraphernalia indicating they've been playing tennis.
'The ocean called, They're running outta
Yeah, yeah, yeah. But then, I said to
him, 'Oh yeah? Well, the jerk
store called, and they're running outta you.'
Jerry and George halt at a bench by the entrance to the pro shop.
Jerry rummages in his bag, producing an old-fashioned wooden framed
(smiling) Really? That's great. You
said that to him?
(confessing) Well, actually, I thought
it up on the way over here.
Oh. That's not quite the same.
No. No it's not. You don't know this
guy. It woulda been so sweet.
I'm gonna grab a can of balls.
George heads on down the corridor. Jerry walks into the pro shop,
his gear. There are a few customers browsing. Milos (East European,
wearing, slicked back hair with pony tail) comes over to Jerry.
Hello. My name is Milos. How can I help
I need a can of balls.
Jerry stands before the counter, holding the old-fashioned racquet.
reaches under the counter and pulls out a can of tennis balls.
Can of balls for the nice guy, alri...
Milos stops and stares disapprovingly at Jerry's racquet.
...Ahh. You don't plan to hit these
balls with that racquet, do you?
Jerry looks surprised.
Inside a typical small video rental store, Elaine stands before
a rack marked
'Staff Picks'. Individual shelves are labelled 'Elizabeth', 'Gene',
'Vincent', amongst others. Elaine is reading the back of a video
Kramer comes up behind her.
Checking out the staff picks, Miss Benes?
Oh. (laughs) Ha-ha. Hey. Yeah, yeah.
(indicating shelf) This Vincent
guy, he is the best. He and I have the exact same taste in movies.
Oh, Vincent is an art-house goon. I
stick to the Gene rack.
Gene? Oh, it's so stupid and mainstream.
(indicates 'Gene' shelf) I've seen all
these, so I went with a Kramer
Kramer holds up a video for Elaine's inspection.
(reading) 'The Other Side Of Darkness'.
Huh, I never heard of that
Yeah, went straight to video.
Elaine looks upon this as a negative.
(positive) That makes me the premiere.
Kramer takes his cassette toward the counter.
(gets Kramer's point) Hah.
Kramer is talking seriously to Jerry, whilst holding a piece
Jerry, have you ever seen the movie
The Other Side Of Darkness?
No. (img src="http://tinyurl.com/2rau")
It's about this woman, in a coma. Well,
I couldn't finish watching
it, so I want you to read this.
Kramer hands the piece of paper to Jerry.
(reading) 'I, Cosmo Kramer, having just
seen the movie The Other Side
Of Darkness, and not wanting to be in a coma like that lady in
hereby want Jerry Seinfeld to remove my life support, feeding
lung-blower, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.'
Can you do that for me, buddy?
Well, I don't if what you have here
constitutes a legally binding
Well, I'm gonna type it up.
Yes, well, of course, but, even so,
you may wanna talk to a lawyer.
Yeah, but, Jackie Chiles, he put a restraining
order on me.
(frustrated) I'm not allowed within two hundred feet of his office.
couldn't even give him his Christmas present.
Jerry nods sympathetically. Kramer spots something on the table.
Oh, hey, new racquet, huh?
Yeah. (hands racquet to Kramer) I wasn't
gonna get it, but this guy
Milos, who runs the pro shop, he really recommended it.
Kramer takes a few practice strokes with the racquet.
In fact, it's the only racquet he plays
(picking up Jerry's old racquet) Well,
you're not gonna need this any
Kramer deposits the old wooden racquet in Jerry's trash. Jerry
something about the piece of paper Kramer gave him.
(accusingly) Hey, this is the zee page
of my address book.
(explaining) Oh yeah, I put all your
zees on the weights and measures
Kramer swings the new racquet again, making ball-smashing sound
Elaine sits up in bed, watching her video rental. She dabs a
tear from her
eye, and sniffs.
(emotional) Oh. Oh, bravo, Vincent.
The phone rings. Elaine reaches over and picks up, not happy
Did you enjoy the movie?
Who is it?
Of Vincent's picks?
Elaine smiles excitedly.
Elaine and Jerry have been playing tennis at a different club
from the one we
saw earlier. They're packing away their stuff. At another court,
a guy in baseball cap and dark glasses is playing truly awful
missing the ball, falling over, flailing wildly with his racquet.
He called you?
He musta got my number off the computer.
We ended up talking for,
like, two hours.
To a guy you've never met? (mild sarcasm)
Your screening process is
getting ever more rigorous.
Elaine sticks out her tongue at Jerry.
Trying to meet him. He's never at the
video store. They said he sets
his own hours.
A tennis ball bounces by Elaine, and she grabs it. The terrible
the other court shouts over.
Little help, hey!
(tossing the ball back) Yeah.
The ball Elaine tossed back eludes the player's grasp, misses
his racquet and
bounces away past him.
(laughing to Jerry) Oh god, that guy's
(pulling on a jacket) Mmm-hmm.
The terrible player continues to swing ineffectually at easy
balls in the
Hey, how come we played at this crummy
place instead of your club?
George used up all my guest passes already.
A ball bounces past Elaine, and Jerry grabs it.
The awful player comes over to get the ball back. As he approaches,
removes his sunglasses and wipes his brow with his forearm.
(tossing the ball) Here you go.
The player catches the ball and raises his head, so we can see
his face. It's
Milos, the guy who sold Jerry his new racquet.
(shock) Oh, hey. (puts sunglasses back
on) How you doing?
Milos looks guilty, and shouts across to his playing partner
as he walks away
Okay, we should uh, wrap it up here.
Milos bounces the ball on the court and tries to hit it over
the net. He
fails, despite being no more than four feet from the net. Jerry
looks down at
his new racquet, thoughtfully.
Elaine and Jerry have just arrived from the tennis club, and
their stuff on the table. Elaine is removing her coat.
So he was bad. What d'you care?
Elaine, I paid two hundred dollars for
this racquet, because he said
it's the only one he plays with. He could've played just as well
with a log.
The door opens and Kramer enters, smartly dressed, with a suit
Hey. Right, I talked to this lawyer
guy, Shellbach. Now, he's gonna
set me up, but you gotta come with me and be the executor.
The executor? Of what?
Kramer wants to die with dignity.
There's a feather in your cap.
I don't wanna be a vegetable, Elaine.
I just want out. (snaps
The door opens and George wanders in, looking pleased with himself.
Sometimes in life, the gods smile upon
you, my friends.
D'you get someone to take that Canadian
I got another meeting with Reilly. A
whole new audience, and I bet I
can get him to try that line again.
George was scarfing shrimp at this meeting,
and this guy says 'Hey,
George, the ocean called. They're running outta shrimp.'
Elaine laughs, loud and long, causing Jerry and Kramer to smile
Listen to the comeback. (pleased) 'Oh
yeah? Well the jerk store
called. They're running outta you.'
George smiles and looks expectant. The other three just stare
at him, with
varying levels of confusion in their expressions.
(worked up) Wha...You gotta be kidding
How 'bout this one? How 'bout, 'Your
cranium called. It's got some
space to rent.'?
Elaine laughs, and Jerry smiles.
(confused) What does that mean?
(taps George's chest) Hey, here you
go. 'Hey, Reilly. The zoo called.
You're due back by six.'
(frustrated) No. No, no, no. You're
not helping me.
Look, just tell him you had sex with
his wife. That'll kill him.
(shouting) I'm not looking for another
line. I got the line.
Look, George, just think about it. You
know, you're married, how
would you feel if somebody says to you that they just had se...
(really animated) Alright, alright.
You see? This is why I hate
writing with a large group. Everybody has their own little opinions,
all gets homogenised, and you lose the whole edge of it. I'm
going with jerk
store! Jerk store is the line! Jerk store! Yess!
George walks out the door. The other three watch him go. Kramer
and looks out the door after George, then returns and spots Jerry's
racquet on a stool.
(picking the racquet up) Did you take
this out of the garbage?
Yeah, it's still got some spring in
Oh, Jerry, this is a piece of junk.
(drops racquet in the trash) How
are you gonna be the executor of my living will?
Jerry retrieves the racquet from the trash.
(indicating) You see? You can't let
Trust me, Kramer. Given the legal opportunity,
I will kill you.
I wish I could believe you. Hey, Elaine,
do you have some free time
Yeah, because you're perfect. You're
a calculating, cold-hearted
businesswoman. And when there's dirty work to be done, you don't

I don't see how.
Ach, I don't like the sound of this
Huhh, yeah, let's pull the cord.
Yank it like (pops open soda can) you're
starting a mower.
Moving on. You have liver, kidneys and
gall bladder, but no

Kramer looks at Elaine, who gives a double thumbs-down.
Well, I gotta have a central nervous

through a tube.
Naw, that's not my style.
Alright, you can eat. But machines do

Yeah, yeah. Stick. (to Elaine) 'Cos

A grim-looking Jerry stalks into the pro shop and over to the
counter to be
met by a nervous and apologetic Milos.
Jerry, thank god you got my message.
Thank you so much for coming down
here. Uhm, listen...
(animated) You know, I spent two hundred
dollars on a racquet because
I thought you knew what you were talking about.
You can't even play.
Believe me, it is Milos great shame.
But Jerry, I could lose my
business if anybody find out. How would you like extra year membership

You could do that?
Jerry, for you, anything.
Jerry looks happier. Milos walks away behind the scenes somewhere.

trying on a visor. After a few moments, Milos returns, looking

they can do it. (meek) Is there anything else I can do for you?

even care about the money. I
just feel like I was taken by the worst tennis player I...

Oh, this is the one Vincent told me
about. The Pain And The Yearning.

That's a lotta yearning, huh?

they're just so emotionally

down a cassette) Oh, here, look at that. Weekend At Bernies Two.

(laughs) Huh. (looks from tape to tape)
Yeah. (taps the Weekend At Bernie's
Yeah, I could use a chuckle.
Elaine returns the 'Vincent' pick to the shelf and walks toward
with the Bernie's tape.
What're you getting?
Nothing, I'm gonna finish watching The
Other Side Of Darkness.
Oh. How much you got left?
Yeah, about two hours.
Elaine does a double-take at this.
Yeah, she shot in that coma pretty quick.
Elaine sits up in bed, watching her video. She's not enjoying

he's wearing sunglasses he looks alive?! (picks up video box)

seats. One more guy (Fred) enters, and moves to sit at the table.
Alright, let's get to it.

Reilly doesn't work here any more.
(surprise) What? I..I didn't hear about

Everyone at the table collapses into laughter at George's expense.
George do nothing but look upset at the turn of events.
Jerry is walking along the street, when he encounters the beautiful
from the pro shop, who appears to have been waiting from him.
Hello. Didn't I see you at the pro shop
I think so. I'm Patty. Milos gave me
your address. I hope you don't
mind me waiting for you here.
(to himself) Hoh, that Milos. (to Patty)
Well uh, what shall we do,
uhm, care for a cup of coffee?
Why don't we just go up to your apartment?
Patty strolls past Jerry, and indicates he should follow.
(to himself) Gotta be an easier way.
Jerry turns to follow Patty.

the couch to
watch the movie, and lifts a big forkful into his mouth.

and refreshed. Get
me a toothbrush.
Kramer continues to stare at the screen, stunned by the outcome
of the movie.
Jerry hands a drink to Patty as she stands by the kitchen counter.
So, you play tennis?
(putting the glass down on the counter)
Enough talk, Jerry.
Patty advances on Jerry, sexily. Jerry looks somewhat surprised.
Not for me, I love chatting.
(putting her hand to Jerry's face) Shh.
Patty leans toward Jerry, as though to kiss him. Just as she's
about to kiss,
she breaks away.
(anguished) No! No, I can't do this.
(moving away) I can't go through
with it. (sitting on the couch) Not even for him!

hands up in
the air, in a gesture of total disbelief.

Elaine walks over the 'Vincent' rack, where she finds nothing
but copies of a
video called Betrayed.
What? Betrayed? Oh, Vincent, I'm so
Kramer enters the store and hurries over to Elaine.
Yeah, listen, uh, Elaine, I've changed
my mind about the whole coma

A subdued Milos is behind the counter, before which stands Jerry.
Milos, I can assure you, I had no intention
of telling anyone about
your unbelievably bad tennis playing.
(not cheered) Thank you, but, unfortunately,
I have much larger
problems to fry. My wife, she has no respect for Milos anymore.
I guess that's a risk you run when you
dabble in the flesh trade.
Patty, she, she loves tennis, as much
like I do. (hopeful) Wou..would

way I can show
her I am still a man.

at him, and

is it's The

Oh, brittle bones. How I long to be

The phone rings and Elaine picks up.
Elaine? It's Vincent.

No. I can't bear to have anyone see

off doors until she spots the one she wants. She gives a smile,
hair a little, and knocks at the door.
The door cracks open a few inches, but it's completely dark inside,
