Rick is George’s boss at Rick Barr Properties. He is a womanizer and he does not recycle.
Rick Levitan appears in:
George quits his job at Rick Barr Properties when he is banned from the executive toilet, but immediately regrets the decision. After discussing potential job opportunities with Jerry, Jerry suggests that he try to go back to work and pretend he never quit.
So when George tries to go back to work on Monday, Rick refuses to let him stay. As revenge, George decides to slip a Mickey into his drink during an office party, and enlists the help of Elaine to help him. At the party, Elaine distracts Rick while George puts the mickey in his drink.
Rick Levitan Quotes:
Rick: Remind me to tell you what we did in Lake George. Get this…I got it all on video.
George: That’s it. This is it. I’m done. Through. It’s over. I’m gone. Finished. Over. I will never work for you again. Look at you. You think you’re an important man? Is that what you think? You are a laughingstock. You are a joke. These people are laughing at you. You’re nothing! You have no brains, no ability, nothing! I quit!
Rick: Ava, what happened to you Friday afternoon?
Ava: I got a little tied up.
Rick: I’ll bet you did. [laughter] I wanna remind everyone that the tenth anniversary party for Rick
Barr Properties is gonna be Wednesday afternoon at four o’clock in Lasky’s Bar, Madison 48th. I want all of you to be there. This really means a lot to me. Is that Costanza over there? What are you doing here?
Rick: Am I crazy, or didn’t you quit?
George: Oh, what? What? That? Are you kidding? I didn’t quit. What? You took that seriously?
Rick: You mean, laughingstock? All that stuff?
George: Come on. Will you stop it.
Rick: No brains? No ability?
Rick: Okay. I want you outta here.
George: I don’t know where you’re getting this from. I….you’re serious aren’t you? Oh, [laughing] you see?
Rick: You can’t win. You can’t beat me. That’s why I’m here and you’re there. Because I’m a winner. I’ll always be a winner and you’ll always be a loser.
Elaine: [sneezes] Rick: God bless you.
Elaine: Oh! Thank you. Thank you very much. [blowing nose] Really. I mean that. I am not one of those people who give insincere thank you’s. No sir. No sir. When I thank someone I really thank them. So, thank…yoooou!
Rick: You’re welcome.
Elaine: People don’t say ” God bless you ” as much as they used to. Have you noticed that?
Elaine: So, I’m going to a nudist colony next week.
Rick: Nudist colony?
Elaine: Oh, yeah. Yeah. I love nudist colonies. They help me..unwind. Aah!
Rick: I’d never been to a nudist colony.
Elaine: Oh, really? Oh, you should go. They’re great. They’re great. Of course, when it’s over, it’s – it’s hard to get used to all this clothing, you know. So, a lot of times, I’ll just lock the door to my office and I’ll just sit there naked.
Elaine: Oh, yeah. I usually work naked a…couple hours a day.
George: [whispering] Glenda, can I ask you a favor? Can I have this seat?
Glenda: What do you have to sit here for? There are plenty of other seats.
George: [whispering] I can’t explain. It’s very important that I sit here.
Glenda: What are you doing here anyway? I thought you were fired.
George: [whispering] Okay. Okay. Fine.
Elaine: I cook naked, I clean….I clean naked, I drive naked. Naked.
Rick: Who are you?
Elaine: Oh, you don’t wanna know, mistah. I’m trouble. Big trouble.
George: Hello, Rick.
Rick: Heh heh heh hey! Look who’s here!
George: That’s right, Ricky Boy, it’s me!
Rick: You know something, Costanza? I’m a very lucky man.
Rick: I’ve always been lucky. Things just seem to fall right in my lap.
[all laughing] Rick: You wouldn’t believe it if I told you. In fact, uh, I’m glad you’re here. You know, maybe I’ve been a little rough on ya, huh?
Rick: Why should we let petty, personal differences get in the way of business? I, uh, I want you to come back. You can use my bathroom anytime you want.
George: You want me to come back? Uh…
Rick: Hey! How about a toast, huh? Everybody, a toast!
Rick: Everyone, I wanna propose a toast to ten great years at Rick Barr Properties.
George: Uh, Rick..
Rick: And all the people in this room, [clears throat] that made that possible..
Rick: I’d also like to welcome back into the fold our..our little shrimpy friend, George Costanza who, although he didn’t really have a very good year — how you blew that McConnell deal, I’ll never know. But, hey, what the hell, huh? We’ve always enjoyed his antics around the office. Heh heh. Anything you wanna add to this?
George: Drink up.
