George wants to breakup with his girlfriend Daphne when he becomes bored because he has nothing to talk about. Daphne tells George that Al Netchi encouraged her to end the relationship because George can’t commit and may end up hurting her. So George decides to postpone the break-up and sustain the relationship just to spite Al Netchi, even telling Jerry that he would go as far as to marry her just to prove he can commit.
Daphne Bowers Quotes:
George: So how were the eggs?
Daphne: Eggs are eggs.
George: Eggs are eggs. That is very profound. By the same token you could say fish is fish. Ha ha ha, I don’t think so. Listen Daphne
George: Daphne. I have to tell you something, this is very difficult…
Daphne: Oh, I forgot to tell you. Al Netchie called me today.
George: Ya, ya. I bumped into him on the bus. What did he have to say?
Daphne: He told me not to get involved with you.
Daphne: Ya, he said you could never make a commitment to any one and you’d just wind up hurting me.
George: He said that? What a nerve. How dare he say something like that.
Daphne: Is it true?
George: Of course not. I mean sure, there may have been one or two occasions in the past, when I may have reacted in uh impulsive or somewhat immature manner, but those days are well behind me.
Daphne: George, tomorrow’s Sunday. We could sleep late, and get the paper and half breakfast and spend the morning together, go for a long walk, maybe do a little shopping, have lunch…
George: You know what. I don’t think I’m going to be able to stay over tonight.
Daphne: Why not?

Daphne: Maybe Al Netchie was right, maybe I shouldn’t have gotten involved with you.
George: No he’s not right. Al Netchie is not right! all right I’m canceling the father-son picnic. I don’t know what he’s gonna do with all that potato salad.
Daphne: George, first let me just say I’ve never been with a guy who was so committed to commit. I mean it’s so rare in men these days an, that’s what makes this all the more difficult.
Daphne: The other day, after work, some girlfriends and I went to a bar for some drinks and there was this crazy mishap and I wound up meeting someone as a result. George…
George: Oh, please don’t.
Daphne: Uh, I’m sorry. I’m afraid the worst of it is it’s someone you know. Jerry Persheck.
Daphne: Heh, he was carrying these two pieces of pizza…
