My Dialogue 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. JERRY: Why? GEORGE: If you’re having second thoughts, if you didn’t want it, 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! Philosophy Essays.
