|I've always been dissatisfied with the Finale, so I wrote my shot at how I would have ended it. I will now officially recognize this as the final episode of the series, and those of you watching at home, feel free to do so as well. I'm particularly proud of the final scene. You may notice a few references to other famous finales.
SEINFELD- THE FINALE
BY: SCOTT SCHMITT
JERRY: It‚s always depressing when a once great TV show is on well past its prime. Take "Happy Days‰ for example. Do you realize that when the show ended, Fonzie was on Medicare? He went from saying "Ayyyyyyyyyyyy!‰ to "Ayyyyyyyyyyyyy, my back!‰ You know how he would hit the jukebox, you know, to get it to play? Well they had to end the show because he broke his hip doing that. "Cheers‰ is another show that was on a long, long time. By the time they were wrapping that up, Norm‚s liver was roughly the size of an ottoman. Not to mention the stool rash. Why don‚t these people know when to call it quits? Just once I‚d like to see a show go out on top.
JERRY AND GEORGE SIT IN A BOOTH AT MONK‚S
GEORGE: I love croutons. I could eat my weight in croutons.
JERRY: Yeah croutons, you gotta love croutons.
GEORGE: I wish you could order croutons as a meal, or at least an appetizer.
JERRY: Yeah, At least an appetizer.
GEORGE: What‚s wrong with you today, you seem so disinterested and bored.
JERRY: Look at us! We‚re talking about croutons!
GEORGE: Well, what do you want to talk about?
JERRY: All we ever do is talk. I don‚t think there‚s anything left to talk about. I mean look at this pathetic little world of ours. We get up, you come over to my place, we come here, we eat crappy tuna, and soup with rubber bands in it, and yap about nothing. Frankly, I‚m getting tired of it. There‚s got to be something more to life than this.
GEORGE: Hey bucko! Need I remind you that we‚ve been down this road before. We were gonna mature. We were gonna grow up, become men, get engaged. We shook hands, WE HAD A PACT! And you reneged.
JERRY: I did not renege. I got engaged to what‚s her face. The female me.
GEORGE: You were engaged for a cup of coffee for God‚s sake.
JERRY: Yeah, well you didn‚t exactly make it to the altar either.
GEORGE: Susan died from licking toxic envelopes! I can‚t be held responsible!
JERRY: Yeah, I‚m sure you had nothing to do with it.
GEORGE: Are you implying that I killed Susan?
JERRY: No, that‚s not what I said.
GEORGE: Well you said it in a very accusational manner.
JERRY: "Accusational‰ is not a word.
GEORGE: Sure it is.
JERRY: No it‚s not.
GEORGE: It‚s a perfectly cromulent word.
JERRY: "Cromulent‰ isn‚t a word, either.
GEORGE: Care to make it interesting?
JERRY: No, no I don‚t. Let‚s just drop it!
GEORGE: Why are you so agitated? Did you take a shower today?
JERRY: Yeah I took a shower. It‚s just that I have this feeling.
GEORGE: Feeling? You have a feeling?
JERRY: It‚s difficult to explain. I just get a sense like this chapter of our lives is about to end, and another is gonna begin.
GEORGE: That‚s a little ominous, don‚t you think?
JERRY: Is it?
GEORGE: I‚m scared now. WATER! I need WATER!
JERRY: It doesn‚t have to end badly.
GEORGE: Yes, yes it does! If there‚s one thing that I‚ve learned, it‚s that EVERYTHING ends badly!
JERRY: Well, perhaps things just end badly because you think they‚re gonna end badly.
GEORGE: I don‚t follow.
JERRY: If we‚re determined to end it well, maybe we can pull it off.
GEORGE: So how the hell are you gonna end this "chapter‰ well?
JERRY: I don‚t know. Maybe I‚ll get engaged again.
GEORGE: Yeah? To who?
JERRY: I don‚t know. Elaine.
GEORGE: That‚s great! All these years, I‚ve always wanted to see you two get back together. You‚re perfect for each other. You‚re soul mates. You‚re like Superman and Lois Lane!
JERRY: Jeez, Georgie, I was kidding.
GEORGE: Yeah well, you should. I mean think about it. You think you‚re gonna have a better relationship with another woman than the one you have with her? You‚re not friends with any of your other ex-girlfriends. You date a different girl every week, but Elaine‚s always been there. For the last nine years, you‚ve been looking for the perfect relationship, and what do you have to show for it? Face it, Elaine is it!
JERRY: She seems like an it.
GEORGE: She's at it as you get. Imagine bumping into her on the street in five years with a husband. And she tells us he's a sculptor, they live in Vermont... We'd have to kill him.
JERRY: Haven‚t we had this conversation before?
GEORGE: You think?
JERRY: I think we have.
George: Yeah, maybe we have. Anyway, I think you two should get married.
JERRY: I tell ya, I don't see it happening. Besides, she‚s with Puddy, again.
GEORGE: Is she? I thought they broke up?
JERRY: Oh, who the hell knows?
GEORGE: Well, tell you what. If you don‚t propose to her, I‚m going to!
JERRY: Yeah, okay, and I‚ll propose to Kramer.
GEORGE: I‚m serious. I could see the two of us married.
JERRY: And what, are you gonna make a spin-off out of it.
GEORGE: A spin-off? Of what?
JERRY: Of our current series.of events.
GEORGE: What an odd thing to say.
THEY SIT SILENT FOR A MOMENT
JERRY: You ready to go?
GEORGE: Yeah. Hey Kenny Bania‚s new show debuts tonight on NBC. Are you gonna watch it?
JERRY: I can‚t believe they gave that clown his own show. And in such a cushy time slot.
GEORGE: Well I‚m looking forward to it.
[THEY GET UP AND LEAVE]
JERRY: Hey, do you really think you have the guts to ask Elaine to marry you?
GEORGE: I wish.
JERRY AND GEORGE IN JERRY‚S APARTMENT
GEORGE: Why do you say you have this feeling? I mean it might just be something you ate.
JERRY: Forget it, I‚m sorry I mentioned it.
GEORGE: What do you think she would say?
JERRY: Who? Elaine?
JERRY: I think she would fear for her life. Why put her through that?
ELAINE: It‚s me
JERRY: Come on up. Well, Biff, here‚s your shot.
GEORGE: You know, I just said that to try and motivate you to ask her.
JERRY: Yeah well, that‚s like bluffing with a six high.
GEORGE: Just trying to be a good friend.
JERRY: Why would you start now?
GEORGE: Well, I better get going. I wanna get home in time to catch the debut of "Bania‰. So.
JERRY: Wait a second, George, don‚t you have a question to pop?
ELAINE: What do you mean?
JERRY: Don‚t you have something to ask Elaine?
GEORGE: Uh, yeah. Uh, how are things with Puddy?
ELAINE: Ugh. It‚s over. For good this time.
GEORGE: Hey that‚s great. Well, onward, and upward.
JERRY: So what was the deal breaker this time.
ELAINE: He ate nothing but French onion dip for a week.
[KRAMER MAKES HIS TRADEMARK ENTRANCE WEARING A TUXEDO. AUDIENCE APPLAUDS WILDLY.]
Kramer: Hey buddy. Hello, my love.
ELAINE: Hey Kramer, what‚s up with the tux?
KRAMER: Ah darling, don‚t you remember our arrangement.
ELAINE: What the hell are you talking about?
KRAMER: We made a pact that if neither of us were married in four years, the two of us would get married. Well here we are, four years later, both single.Let‚s get hitched!
ELAINE: It was fifty years you jackass. FIFTY! Not four.
Kramer: I‚m really hurt that you‚re trying to back out of this. We had a verbal contract. If we can't take each other at our word, all is lost.
ELAINE: I‚m not backing out, the deal was fifty years!
KRAMER: Hey, Jerry. Were you here when we made the deal?
JERRY: Yeah, it‚s my apartment.
KRAMER: Was it four years or fifty years?
JERRY: Oh, I don‚t remember. Fifty-four maybe? Why don‚t you split the difference?
ELAINE: Face it, Kramer. We‚re not getting married.
KRAMER: HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO ME??!?!? I THOUGHT WE HAD SOMETHING SPECIAL?!?!?
[KRAMER EXITS CRYING]
JERRY: That‚s a shame. I think it would be interesting if you two got married.
ELAINE: Oh yeah?
JERRY: Yeah it would make a funny spin-off.
ELAINE: Spin-off? Of what
Elaine: Maybe I should just get married.
Jerry: Dating is really starting to get embarrassing isn't it?
Elaine: I know. You know, whenever I'm on a date I feel people can tell.
Jerry: People on dates shouldn't even be allowed out in public.
Elaine: You can say that again.
JERRY: Haven‚t we had this conversation before?
ELAINE You think?
JERRY: I think we have.
ELAINE: Yeah, maybe we have.
[KRAMER ENTERS, GRABS A JAR OF PICKLES FROM JERRY‚S REFRIGERATOR, THEN EXITS AVOIDING ELAINE.]
JERRY: Maybe you should marry Kramer. I mean, he‚s willing to marry you, you‚re not getting any younger, you pick fights with all your boyfriends.
ELAINE: Enough! I do want to get married soon. I‚m getting out. I can‚t keep this up much longer. But, I don‚t wanna marry some hipster doofus.
JERRY: I think I‚d like to give marriage another shot.
ELAINE: Another shot? When were you married?
JERRY: Well, we weren‚t "officially‰ married.
ELAINE: You‚re the most shallow man on the planet. You think you‚re gonna make some woman feel special.
JERRY: Yes! Yes I do. It‚s really a matter of who.
ELAINE: Well, You always find yourself finding your way back to your one true love,
JERRY: But who is it?
ELAINE: You figure it out. Maybe it‚s George
JERRY: We‚re not gay! Not that there‚s anything wrong with that!
ELAINE: No, not at all. So what are you doing tonight? You wanna go see a movie?
JERRY: Nah - what for?
ELAINE: To see a movie.
JERRY: I've been to the movies.
ELAINE: Not this movie.
JERRY: They're all the same. You go, you sit, you eat popcorn, you watch. I'm sick of it.
ELAINE: What‚s with you today?
JERRY: I don‚t know. Do you ever get the feeling that change is eminent?
ELAINE: It usually winds up being gas.
ELAINE: So are we on for the movies tonight
JERRY: Nah, I think I‚ll just stay home and watch TV.
ELAINE: Alright, see ya.

Kramer: Yeah, well, let me clue you in on something. There isn't.
Jerry: There isn't?
Kramer: Absolutely not. I mean, what are you thinking about, Jerry:? Marriage? Family?
Kramer: They're prisons. Man made prisons. You're doing time. You get up in the morning. She's there. You go to sleep at night. She's there. It's like you gotta ask permission to use the bathroom. Is it all right if I use the bathroom now?

KRAMER: Look, I know how tough it is for you to say goodbye, so I'll say it. Maybe you're right, maybe we will see each other again, but just in case we don't, I want you to know how much you've meant to me. I'll never be able to shake you; whenever I hear a humorous observation or see a cheesy mullet, I'll think of you.
JERRY: Whenever I see somebody shave with butter, I'll think of you.
KRAMER: Or the next time somebody shaves his chest
JERRY: ...or when somebody burns down a cabin, or sets up a talk-show set inside his apartment.
KRAMER: I'll miss you.

ELAINE: It‚s not Puddy!
Jerry: I've been thinking about what it means to be complete.
Elaine: Do you have an apple or anything?

JERRY: Clearly, no one else can stand to be with either one of us.
ELAINE: I suppose.
JERRY: Come on, we‚ll have a wedding, there‚ll be a lot of people to mock.
JERRY: Will you marry me?
ELAINE: Alright, Jerome, what the hell.

GEORGE: Well Mel Brooks played an Indian in Blazing Saddles.
KRAMER: Blazing Saddles, now there‚s a movie with a great ending.
GEORGE: It was a great movie, but it had a bad ending.
JERRY: What‚s wrong with the ending?
GEORGE: It's stupid.
JERRY: It‚s supposed to be stupid. The whole movie‚s stupid.
GEORGE: Yeah, but the ending was STUPID stupid.
ELAINE: You know what‚s stupid? This conversation.
KRAMER: The ending was classic.
ELAINE: Hey, Kramer, what happened on your CIA mission?
KRAMER: Uh, there was some.unpleasantness, I can never go back.
JERRY: That‚s a shame.
KRAMER: Tell me about it, now I have to try and find a job. I tell ya, it‚s embarrassing to be out of work.
GEORGE: You‚re telling me, I‚m gonna have to move back in with my parents. I can‚t believe it was invitations..AGAIN!
KRAMER: So, uh, what're you guys gonna do today?
ELAINE: Oh, this and that
JERRY: And the other.
KRAMER: What? Are you a couple again?
ELAINE: We‚re getting married!
KRAMER: Giddy up! Let‚s hear about it. How did you propose?
JERRY: What‚s the big deal? We‚re not blazing any trails here. People get married all the time. Have you ever picked up a newspaper and the headline was "COUPLE GETS MARRIED"
GEORGE: I can‚t believe it took you guys this long. You‚re perfect for each other. I mean how could you be so stupid? It‚s been staring you in the face this whole time. I can‚t believe.
ELAINE: Why don‚t you just shut the hell up.
Jerry: See now, to me, that button is in the worst possible spot.
Jerry: Oh yeah. The second button is the key button. It literally makes or breaks the shirt. Look at it, it's too high, it's in no-man's land.
George: Haven't we had this conversation before?
Jerry: You think?
George: I think we have.
Jerry: Yeah, maybe we have.
CLOSING MONOLOGUE-JERRY: You know, why we're here? To be out, this is out...and out is one of the single most enjoyable experiences of life. People...did you ever hear people talking about "We should go out"? This is what they're talking about...this whole thing, we're all out now, no one is home. Not one person here is home, we're all out! There are people tryin' to find us, they don't know where we are. [imitates one of these people pretends his hand is a phone] "Did you ring?, I can't find him." [imitates other person on phone] "Where did he go?" [the first person again] "He didn't tell me where he was going". He must have gone out. You wanna go out: you get ready, you pick out the clothes, right? You take the shower, you get all ready, get the cash, get your friends, the car, the spot, the reservation...There you're staring around, whatta you do? You go: "We gotta be getting back". Once you're out, you wanna get back! You wanna go to sleep, you wanna get up, you wanna go out again tomorrow, right? Where ever you are in life, it's my feeling, you've gotta go. Alright, that's it for me. You've been great. Goodnight everybody.
