A Clip from "The Checks" Episode 141 from Season 8 of Seinfeld. I created this using Bulent's Screen Recorder 5.
Kramer tucks his Japanese guests into "bed" into some Karl Farbman drawers which were a gift from Elaine's boyfriend, Brett (played by James Patrick Stuart)
dialog / script:
JERRY: Hey. How was the Rainbow Room?
KRAMER: Uh, well, we, uh, we had to leave early. There was a, uh, slight
monetary discrepancy regarding the bill.
KRAMER: Uh, listen, uh, can I borrow some pillows?
JERRY: What for?
Kramer wanders into Jerry's bedroom.
KRAMER (O.C.): Yeah, well, uh, my Japanese friends're gonna stay with me.
JERRY: I thought they all had suites at the Plaza?
Kramer reenters, carrying three pillows.
KRAMER: Well, I'm sorry, Jerry, we all don't have checks rolling in like you
JERRY: Well, what about all that money from the kimonos I wear?
KRAMER: Well, they ran out of it. Manhattan can be quite pricey. Even with
fifty thousand yen.
Elaine is in the kitchen, eating cereal from the box.
ELAINE: Fifty thousand yen? Isn't that only a few hundred dollars?
KRAMER: Evidently. (To Elaine) Oh, by the way, tell Brett that his chest of
drawers are a big hit. My guests are very comfortable in them.
ELAINE: In them?!
JERRY: You have them sleeping in drawers?!
KRAMER: Jerry, have you ever seen the business hotels in Tokyo? They sleep in
tiny stacked cubicles all the time. They feel right at home.
JERRY: This has 'international incident' written all over it.
KRAMER: (smiling) Oh yeah, yeah.
Up against one wall of the apartment stands a very large chest of three
drawers. It's about six feet long and each drawers is maybe a foot and a half
deep. Kramer walks over to it and looks into the open top drawer.
KRAMER: Goodnight, Mr Tanaka.
One of the Japanese tourists sits up in the drawer.
MR TANAKA: Goodnight.
Mr Tanaka lies down again, and Kramer slides the drawer shut. He then speaks
to the occupant of the next drawer.
KRAMER: Goodnight, Mr Oh.
MR OH: (sits up) Goodnight.
Mr Oh lies back down and Kramer slides the drawers shut, and speaks to the
final drawer's occupant.
KRAMER: Goodnight, Mr Yamaguchi.
MR YAMAGUCHI: (sits up) Oh, yes. Goodnight.
Mr Yamaguchi lies down. Kramer shuts the final drawer, switches off the lamp
and, yawning, walks off toward his own bed
