Cosmo Kramer: [to Newman] See, we should've gotten some collateral from him... Like his bag of cans, or... his other bag of cans.
Newman: We gotta find that rickshaw. You check the sewers and dumpsters. I'll hit the soup kitchens, bakeries, and smorgasbords.
[Newman and Kramer both go to leave]
Jerry Seinfeld: To the Idiotmobile!
