OSGOOD: I called mama. She was so happy, she cried. She wants you to have her wedding gown. It’s white lace.

JERRY: Osgood, I can’t get married in your mother’s dress... she and I, we’re not built the same way.

OSGOOD: We can have it altered.

JERRY: Oh no you don’t. Osgood, I’m gonna level with you: we can’t get married at all.

OSGOOD: Why not?

JERRY: Well, in the first place, I’m not a natural blonde.

OSGOOD: Doesn’t matter!

JERRY: I smoke. I smoke all the time.

OSGOOD: I don’t care.

JERRY: I have a terrible past. For three years now I’ve been living with a saxophone player.

OSGOOD: I forgive you.

JERRY: I can never have children.

OSGOOD: We can adopt some.

JERRY: (exasperated) But you don’t understand, Osgood! I’m a man!

OSGOOD: (Entirely unfazed) Well... nobody’s perfect.
