George and Jerry's television pilot gets canceled after they look at an NBC executive's daughter's cleavage; Elaine tries top stop Jerry's ex-girlfriend to stop talking to everyone about their new shoes.
(George, Jerry and Elaine are sitting at a table. Jerry and George are wearing baseball uniforms.) George: Who gets picked off in softball? It's unheard of. Jerry: It's never happened to me before. Elaine: I remember saying to myself, "Why is Jerry so far off the base?" Jerry: I'll have to live with this shame for the rest of my life. (George consults his stat sheet of the game) George: And then in the fifth inning, why did you take off on the pop fly? Jerry: I thought there were two outs. Elaine: I couldn't believe it when I saw you running. (laughing) I thought maybe they had changed the rules or something. Jerry: It was the single worst moment of my life. George: What about Sharon Besser? Jerry: Oh, well, of course. Nineteen seventy three. Elaine: Makes you wonder, though, doesn't it? Jerry: Wonder about what? Elaine: You know (looking up) the spirit world. Jerry: You think Manya showed up during the game and put a hex on me? Elaine: I never saw anyone play like that. Jerry: But I went to the funeral. Elaine: Yeah, but that doesn't make up for killing her. George: Maybe Manya missed the funeral because she was off visiting another galaxy that day. Jerry: Don't you think she would've heard I was there? George: Not necessarily. (pause) Jerry: Who figures an immigrant's gonna have a pony? (Elaine laughs)
George: I like sports. I could do something in sports. Jerry: Uh-huh. Uh-huh. In what capacity? George: You know, like the general manager of a baseball team or something. Jerry: Yeah. Well, that - that could be tough to get. George: Well, it doesn't even have to be the general manager. Maybe I could be like, an announcer. Like a colour man. You know how I always make those interesting comments during the game. Jerry: Yeah. Yeah. You make good comments. George: What about that? Jerry: Well, they tend to give those jobs to ex-ballplayers and people that are, you know, in broadcasting. George: Well, that's really not fair. Jerry: I know. Well, okay. Okay. What else do you like? George: Movies. I like to watch movies. Jerry: Yeah. Yeah. George: Do they pay people to watch movies? Jerry: Projectionists. George: That's true. Jerry: But you gotta know how to work the projector. George: Right. Jerry: And it's probably a union thing. George: (scoffs) Those unions. (sighs) Okay. Sports, movies what about a talk show host? Jerry: Talk show host. That's good. George: I think I'd be good at that. I talk to people all the time. Someone even told me once they thought I'd be a good talk show host. Jerry: Really? George: Yeah. A couple of people. I don't get that, though. Where do you start? Jerry: Well, that's where it gets tricky. George: You can't just walk into a building and say "I wanna be a talk show host". Jerry: I wouldn't think so. George: It's all politics. Jerry: All right, okay. Sports, movies, talk show host. What else? George: This could have been a huge mistake. Jerry: Well, it doesn't sound like you completely thought this through.
