"George Costanza ""The Jerk Store"" T-Shirt. This shirt is based on the episode call ""The Comeback"" The 147th episode, or the 13th episode of the 8th season. George Costanza uses the term ?jerk store? as a part of a comeback to one of his coworkers at the New York Yankees named Reilly (Joel Polis). When Reilly catches George stuffing himself with shrimp cocktail at a meeting, Reilly remarks: ""Hey George, the ocean called; they're running out of shrimp."" Slow-witted George cannot think of a comeback until later, while driving to the tennis club to meet Jerry. His comeback is: ""Oh yeah, Reilly? Well, the Jerk Store called, and they're running out of you."" George suffers from l'esprit de l'escalier and becomes obsessed with recreating the encounter so that he can make use of his comeback. Jerry, Elaine and Kramer disapprove of ""jerk store"" as a comeback mainly because ""there are no jerk stores."" Elaine suggests, ""Your cranium called. It's got some space to rent."" Jerry offers, ""The zoo called. You're due back by six."" Kramer finally suggests that George simply tell Reilly that he slept with his wife. After discovering that Reilly was let go from the Yankees and now works for Firestone, George flies to Akron, Ohio, sets up a meeting, and brings a tray of shrimp just to try out the jerk store line. When he says it, however, Reilly shoots back with ""What's the difference? You're their all-time best seller."" George, unprepared for this ends up using Kramer's line ""Oh yeah? Well I had sex with your wife!"" He is then told that Reilly 's wife is in a coma."
