[The New York Health Club. Jerry, Kramer and George are getting dressed]
GEORGE: " That guy was amazing, he could dunk and he was my height...What was his name again?"
GEORGE: "Jimmy, right."
JERRY: "I dunno how you could forget . He kept reffering to himself in the third person. "Jimmy's under the boards. Jimmy's in the open. Jimmy makes the shot."
GEORGE: "Ah! your just mad 'cause we beat ya."
KRAMER: "Jerry it's my fault .I couldn't make a shot. These losses they stay with me. They (?) Jerry. Now this is gonna plague me."( Puts on aftershave and cries out) OH! Mother!!!"
(Jimmy walks in)
GEORGE: "HEY! JIMMY!!! ha ha ha........Great game."
JIMMY: "OH yeah.......Jimmy played pretty good."
GEORGE: "Hey you know , I felt we had like a synergy out there,you know, like we were really helping each other."
KRAMER: "What d'you got there?"
JIMMY: "These are Jimmy's training shoes."
GEORGE: "Yeah,yeah yeah yeah! I've seen these.....they sorta ..they make your legs..stronger."
JIMMY: "Oh yeah! Jimmy couldn't jump at all before he got these. Jimmy was like you (looks at George)
KRAMER: "They're Plyometric.(sp?)"
KRAMER: "Yeah! They isolate the muscles. The muscle has to grow....or die."
GEORGE: (to Jimmy) Wh...Where d'you get'em?"
JIMMY: "Jimmy sells'em."
GEORGE: "You sell them?"
JIMMY: "Oh yeah! But Jimmy's all out right now. Moving to Manhattan set Jimmy back a bit."
GEORGE: "Hey listen, let me give you my card. It's got my home number on it. I want to buy the first pair when the next shipment comes in."
JIMMY: "All right"
GEORGE: "All right Jimmy Good talking to ya."
JIMMY: "Jimmy'll see you around."
GEORGE: "What day is today?....Aw. ..Tuesday! Damn it. I shouldn't have worked out today. Mr Wilhem has called a big meeting and now I'm gonna be sweating through the whole thing."
JERRY: "Why. You took a shower?"
GEORGE: "Aahhrgh...it wouldn't take...... long pause, audience laughter) ten minutes from now, I'll be sweating all over again ,I can feel it. I'm a human heat pump!"
KRAMER: "You should take cold showers."
GEORGE: "Cold showers? They're for psychotics."
KRAMER: "Well I take 'em........They give me a Whooooosh."
GEORGE: "All right, I'll see you guys later."
JERRY: "Aw right."
KRAMER: "So, you're heading home?"
JERRY: "No...Got dental appointment."
KRAMER: "Ah! what.. Tim Whatley?
KRAMER: "Oh yeah.! I got a check up on Thursday."
JERRY: "Oh! How d'you like that?"
KRAMER: "You know.. You really shouldn't brush 24 hours before seeing the dentist."
JERRY: "I think that's eat 24 hours before surgery."
KRAMER: "Oh no, you got to eat before surgery, you need your strength."
(Kramer leaves. Jerry is speechless.)
[Meeting at Yankee Stadium.]
WILHELM: "I called this meeting because we......have........a problem. For the last few months someone has been stealing equipment from the club. Until recently it's been little things, y'know; bases, batting helmets, donuts, but two nights ago they pulled the big one. "
(The camera goes back and forth from Wilhem to George who keeps pulling on his collar he's sweating.)
WILHELM: "They took a pitching machine, a batting cage ,the in-field tarp and all of Mr Steinbrenner's vitamins.. Now , we have reasons to believe it's an inside job."
GEORGE: (still puffing)" Whoa!!"
WILHELM: "If anybody here knows anything about it I recommend strongly that...you come forward."
(Wilhem looks at George who's sweating so much it seems he's hiding something.)
[Scene cuts to Tim Whatley's dental office.]
RECEPTIONIST: "Dr Whatley's running a little late. If you'd like to take a seat, I'll call you when he's ready."
JERRY: "All right."
(Jerry sits down and browses through the magazine on the table and discovers Tim has Penthouse magazines for patients to read.)
[Scene then switches to Jerry's apartment. Elaine is on the phone.]
ELAINE: "Oh! Okay. Right. Thanks Mr Pitt....'kay. ..goodbye."
ELAINE: (to Jerry) "Hey ! You want to go see "The Velvet Fog".
JERRY: "The Velvet fog?"
ELAINE: "Yeah! Mel Tormé, That's his nickname."
JERRY: "What the hell his a velvet fog."
ELAINE: "Do you wanna go or not?"
JERRY: "Well , where is it?."
ELAINE: "He's performing at this AMCA benefit."
ELAINE: "Able Mentally Challenged Adults"
JERRY: "Naaaaaa...I can't watch a man sing a song."
ELAINE: "What are you..crazy?"
JERRY: "They get all emotional , they sway. It's embarrassing."
ELAINE: "Well, what am I gonna do for a date.?...Oh! do you know that ..hemmm! blond guy who's always at the exercycle at the health club?"
JERRY: "I don't think so."
ELAINE: "Yeah yeah! He's really handsome with those..."
JERRY: (interrupting) "Elaine , I really don't...............pay much attention to men`s faces."
ELAINE: "You can't find beauty in a man?"
JERRY: "No... I find them repugnant and unappealing."
(Kramer bursts in)
JERRY: (pointing Kramer) "To wit"
JERRY: "No ,Elaine and I we're just discussing whether I could admit a man is attractive."
KRAMER: " Hmm! Oh! Yeah. I'll tell you who is an attractive man; Gorge Will."
KRAMER: "Yeah! He has clean looks, scrubbed and shampooed and...."
ELAINE: "He's smart...."
KRAMER: "No, no I don't find him all that bright."
KRAMER: "So you got any cavities?"
JERRY: "Just one....gotta go back.....Oh but get this. Elaine, you will appreciate this. I'm sitting in Tim Whatley's waiting room...He's got a Penthouse right out on the table."
JERRY: "Yeah!!! What is that? I mean isn't that sick. I mean , I'd be embarrassed to have that in my apartment."
KRAMER: "So what's wrong with that?
JERRY: (outraged) He's a doctor!.I mean it's supposed to be like a sterile environment."
KRAMER: "So... Did you take a look?"
JERRY: "Of course.... But that's got nothing to do with it."
KRAMER: "Well I'll tell you I'm looking forward to my appointment on Thursday. I might even get there a few minutes early."
(George comes in. Kramer walks out.)
ELAINE: "Hey! Hey! listen ... Do one of you guys know that ..that blond guy who's always on the exercycle at the health club. You know he's just really handsome?.."
GEORGE: (head down low) I...I wouldn't know"
ELAINE: "You know that just admitting a man is handsome doesn't necessarily make you a homosexual."
GEORGE: "It doesn't help"
ELAINE: "All right, I'm gone"
GEORGE: "I'll see you."
GEORGE: (to Jerry) "You know those shoes that Jimmy had? I cut a deal with him. We're gonna import a case of them together."
JERRY: "What are you doing that for, you got a job"
GEORGE: "There's a lot of money in this.. He's got a proven sales method"
JERRY: " Yeah! What's that."
GEORGE: "He jumps!"
JERRY: "Jimmy's got a record. Jimmy's jumping for dollars. Jimmt and George are gonna get rich."
GEORGE: "Will you stop with the Jimmies"
Kramer takes something out of the fridge
KRAMER: "Hey! What's this?"
JERRY: "Kom Pau(sp?"
(Kramer tastes the chicken but realizes too late how hot and spicy it is)
KRAMER: "(gasp_)......Kom Pau........"
[Elaine at the health club trying to attract the handsome blond guy's attention.]
ELAINE: (We hear what she thinks) Look at me....Look at Mee!. Come on. I'm stretching right in front of you. Heeeey!! ...a smile. Aah! we made contact, all right one more stretch and then go talk to him.
(Hank leaves as she's ready to make her move. Elaine turns to try to find out where he could be and stops when she takes notice of Jimmy.)
JIMMY: "You know...Jimmy is pretty sweet on you."
ELAINE: "Aaaaaahhh! He is?!"
JIMMY: "Oh yeah!. Jimmy's been watching you....you're just Jimmy's type."
ELAINE: "AAaaaaahhh! Really?"(giggles)
JIMMY: "Jimmy's new in town. Jimmy hem ..doesn't really know anyone."
ELAINE: "Oh! well I'd like, like to get to know him."
JIMMY: "Jimmy would like to get to know you."

KRAMER: "Well you know its.. great. You know, no kids ..allowed. you don't have to watch your language."
JERRY: "You find you need to use a lot of obscenities at the dentist.
KRAMER: "He..he... When they pull that needle out I let the expletives fly."
(Kramer reaches for a glass of water and drinks but manages to have it spill out on to the floor)
JERRY: "Hey! Hey! Watch it.!... You're drooling all over the floor. How much Novocaine did that guy give you."
KRAMER: "Well.. Aye can't hold the water."

GEORGE: (angrily)"WHY WEREN'T YOU MORE CAREFUL WITH YOUR DROOL!"
KRAMER: "HEY I'M DOING THE BEST I CAN!!!"
JERRY: "Why are you taking this so personally?"
GEORGE: "BECAUSE IF HE CAN'T JUMP. THERE GOES MY SNEAKER BUSINESS!!"
KRAMER: (cries out) WELL I SAID I'M SORRY."
JIMMY: (as he gets taken out) "JIM....JIMMY WONT FORGET YOU KRAMER... JIMMY HOLDS GRUDGES. LET JIMMY GO......"
KRAMER: "BUT I CAN'T FEEL ANYTHING."
[Kramer is seen running down the street with his vertical lift shoes. He's trying to hail a cab.]
KRAMER: "HEY TAXI!!!.....TAXI!!"
(An elderly gentleman is after the same taxi.)
KRAMER: "Go ahead, go ahead you got it......(to the driver) He's got it."

[In a sporting goods store, George tries to make a sale. He is putting on the shoes.]
GEORGE: "Argh!!..Anyway...Jimmy couldn't be here today so he asked me to fill in for him, and I'm sure that you'll be impressed at what can be accomplished after only a few short days of training.....yeah!"
(George tries three times to jump but barely lifts a couple of inches off the ground. The store personnel gets uninterested quickly and leave.)

As an avid reader I've always wondered if the letters (with Jerry) are I'm a dentist and one afternoon my hygienist and I decided to have a little fun with one of our patients. Of course none of our patients had any idea exactly of what we were up to. I was still wondering what if ......... (Jerry stops and seems bewildered)
