When Elaine reluctantly allows George to attend her company party, he hits on one of Elaine’s employees, Anna, but she doesn’t seem interested. When Elaine dances at the party, her staff loses all respect for her, and Elaine mistakenly believes that this lack of respect is due to George’s presence at the party, so she advises Anna to stay away from George. This causes Anna to think of George as a “bad boy”, making him more desirable to her.
George: Oh yeah. These are fantastic, fantastic. (To server) You know, I’d love to get a jump on the next batch, where do you come out? (To Anna) She’s been ignoring this section all night. Quesadilla?
Anna: No thanks.
George: My name is George.
Anna : Anna. I don’t recall seeing you around the office. Do you work in the mail room?
George: No, I’m a friend of Elaine Benes.
Anna: Oh. Excuse me.
Anna: You have a minute to approve some copy?
Elaine: Oh yeah, sure, sure. So, did ya have a good time at the party last night?
Anna: It was a real… kick.
Elaine: Hey, did you happen to speak to my friend George?
Anna: As a matter of fact I did.
Elaine: Ah hah. Well, listen. You would be wise to keep your distance from him.
Anna: Why? He seems harmless.
Elaine: Oh he’s not. He’s very harmful.
Elaine: Oh trust me. He’s a bad seed. He’s a horrible seed. He’s one of the worst seeds I’ve ever seen.
Anna: And you two are friends?
Elaine: Yeah, we’re good friends.
Anna: You know I’m not supposed to be talking to you.
George: No one’s putting a gun to your head. Do I, uh, scare you?
Anna: No… a little. Nice car.
George: Yeah, she’s a sweet ride.
Anna: Is that your orthopedic back pillow?
Anna: Well is it or isn’t it?
George: Guess not.
Elaine: George, hi. I have Anna here. There’s something I wanna say to both of you.
George: Yo, Anna.
Anna: Hi, George. What’re you up to?
George: (Ironing) You don’t wanna know.
Elaine: Uh, well, listen. I feel really horrible about trying to keep you two apart and I just wanted to apologize.
George: What’re you talkin’ about?
Elaine: Well, George, I just want you to hear me say to Anna that you’re a good and decent person.
George: Pick up the phone, Elaine. Pick it up!
Elaine: I never should have given Anna the impression–
George: Pick it up, pick it up!
Elaine: –that you’re a bad seed, I mean, you’re a fine seed.
George: Elaine, get off the speaker!
George: You are ruinin’ everything.
Elaine: I’m trying to help. Why are you being so difficult?
George: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. That’s it. More of that, difficult. I’m a difficult seed.
Elaine: George, I don’t have time for this. Uh, Anna, do you wanna talk to George?
Anna: Um, no, I don’t think so.
Elaine: No, she doesn’t want to. Okay, bye, George. We’ll see ya.
George: I’m a bootlegger.
Anna: You’re a what?
George: I’m bootleggin’ a movie, baby!
Anna: Isn’t that illegal?
George: I can do hard time for this one. And community service!
Anna: (George is crying) It’s all right, George. You’ll just pay a fine and that’ll be it.
George: Why did the policeman have to yell at me like that?
