Vandelay, Varnsen & Pennypacker

You can't see this on TV. I refer to the canonical exchange between wealthy industrialists Art Vandelay, Kel Varnsen, and H.E. Pennypacker. But somebody doesn't want you to see it...

SALES WOMAN: Mr. Pennypacker, this is Mr. Vandelay, And you know Mr. Varnsen

KRAMER: Uh, Varnsen.

JERRY: Pennypacker.

KRAMER: Vandelay.

GEORGE: Pennypacker. Varnsen.

JERRY: Vandelay. Wait a second. Mr. Pennypacker, if you're here, and Mr. Vandelay is also here, then who's watching the factory?

You can't see it, but you can read more here. Who's watching the factory, who indeed?
