INT. JERRY'S APARTMENT
Now do we eat? I’m starving.
Sort of. Next up is the Karpas. Who wants to do the Karpas? Yael?
George's love interest Yael replies:
I’d be honored. For the Karpas, we dip fresh green vegetables into bitter, salty water. It symbolizes the celebration of a painful moment in Jewish history, by combining a metaphor of tears and slavery, the salt water, with one of spring and rebirth, the green vegetable, in this case, the big salad Elaine brought.
YAEL DIPS SOME OF THE BIG SALAD INTO THE SALT WATER. SHE BITES THE VEGETABLE.
YAEL PASSES THE KARPAS TO GEORGE. HE TAKES THE BIG SALAD AND SALT WATER NEXT, DIPS, AND BITES.
YAEL SMILES. HOWEVER, GEORGE THEN RE-DIPS THE BITTEN VEGETABLE INTO THE SALT WATER AND TAKES ANOTHER BITE.
YAEL LOOKS AT GEORGE. SHE’S DISGUSTED.
What are you doing?
You just double dipped the Karpas?
You dipped the Karpas. Bit it. And dipped it again.
George's Father, Frank, yells at him:
It’s like putting your whole mouth in the Karpas, George!
I didn’t get enough salt water the first time. I like to really feel the tears of our people. Is that so bad?
There’s no double dipping. In general. Of anything.
George's mother criticizes him:
Who raised you to double dip? We didn’t raise him to double dip. I can tell you that.
I’m sorry you had to see that, Yael.
Can we just say the prayer already?!
Baruch atah Adonai Eloheinu Melech ha`olam, bo'rei p'ri ha'adama.
Praised Are You, Our G-d, who creates the fruit of the earth.
