Elaine thinks that boyfriend David Puddy may be religious after finding Christian stations set on his rental car radio. At the coffee shop, George laments to Jerry about losing respect at a project meeting led by Mr. Kruger after following a good suggestion with a lame joke. Jerry suggests that George use the Vegas showmanship trick of “walking off” after a high note. Elaine tells George and Jerry about her suspicions with Puddy. George tells her to alter his radio presets as a test. Kramer and Mickey Abbott get an acting gig playing sick for some medical students. Jerry’s girlfriend Sophie calls him with the “it’s me” greeting, but he does not recognize her voice. At the next Kruger meeting, George takes Jerry’s suggestion and actually leaves the room after a well-received joke. For their acting job, Mickey and Kramer are assigned bacterial meningitis and gonorrhea, respectively. Elaine confirms that Puddy is religious. Kramer picks up on the showmanship idea and gives an impressive theatrical performance of gonorrhea for the med students. When Sophie uses the unwelcome “it’s me” greeting on Jerry’s answering machine, George suggests he return the favor when he calls back. Sophie does not recognize Jerry’s voice. Thinking that Jerry is a friend named “Ralph” (using the traditional British pronunciation “Rafe”), she reveals that she has not told Jerry about an incident she calls the “tractor story.” Puddy confirms that he is religious and is not concerned that Elaine is not, because he is “not the one going to Hell.”
Jerry buys his dad a $200 Wizard organizer for a birthday present. Jerry and George debate about the race of Elaine’s new boyfriend and that intrigues her - is he black?. Kramer announces his retirement, a Hollywood big shot has optioned his coffee table book about coffee tables. Elaine finds evidence that leads her to believe her boyfriend is black. Susan’s parents see George on the street in the city, during the time he told them he would be at the Hampton’s so as to avoid a Foundation function.
Jerry is woken up early in the morning at his parents’ house and gives his father the Wizard, which apparently Jerry got from a deal at only $50. Morty is only impressed by it being a “tip calculator”, although Jerry claims it does other things. Later he discovers that Kramer has moved to Florida, to join the other retirees. Elaine laughs when Susan’s parents ask her about George’s house in the Hamptons, revealing the lies. Morty, who can’t run for president of the condo association because he was impeached from their previous condo, decides that Kramer should be elected condo board president of Del Boca Vista phase III, so Morty will run things from behind the scenes, like a “puppet regime”. Elaine schemes to try to determine her boyfriend’s race. As George finds out the Rosses knew that he lied, and they allowed him to continue lying, he keeps building on his lie and picks up the Rosses to take them to the Hamptons, to “see who’ll blink first”.
Kramer begins his campaign and the Boca Breeze has good things to say about him. When Elaine’s boyfriend says they are an interracial couple, she is convinced he is black. Kramer receives some bad press from the Boca Breeze; it’s damage control time. Kramer suggests buying each member of the board one of those Wizard “tip calculators”. Jerry knows he can’t get the deal he told his father he’d received, but Kramer says not to worry, Bob Sacamano’s father lives down there and can help them out. Elaine discovers her boyfriend is not black, and that he referred to them as an interracial couple because he thought she was Hispanic. Sacamano’s father comes through with knock-off “tip calculators” called “the Willard”, which are defective, costing Morty and Kramer the election. George and the Rosses reach the Hamptons, where he blinks first and the truth is revealed. The Rosses confirm that they dislike George, and blame him for Susan’s death.
George’s employer wants to get rid of him, since they now know he isn’t really handicapped and they don’t like him. He has a one-year contract with Play Now, which he will exploit by meeting only the most basic requirement of showing up for work every day.
Jerry and George mock the sounds that Jerry’s girlfriend Claire’s stomach makes during the night chiefly by saying “helloooo” in a loud, booming voice. Jerry envisions the belly button as the mouth and the sound the stomach makes its voice. Because of the “bump-into,” Jerry tells Elaine that she is destined to backslide into her relationship with David Puddy. She bets him $50 that she won’t. The next day Jerry discovers that Elaine didn’t go home last night. He accuses her of seeing Puddy. She says the sex they had was an isolated incident. Jerry agrees, but since the dinner they also had was more of a commitment, he demands that she pay up.
Kramer is tired of seeing all his ideas implemented before he has a chance to implement them himself. He contends that all the little day to day incidental things keep getting in his way and prevent him from realizing his ideas. He gets an intern from New York University, Darin, to help him out with Kramerica Industries, the corporation he had previously set up to develop some of his ideas. With this help he’ll be freed from those day to day activities and be able to develop his ideas, such as the oil tanker bladder.
Over the summer both George and Jerry grow mustaches as a way of taking a vacation from themselves after George’s suggestion. They both admit it was a bad idea and Jerry suggests they should have taken real vacations. George quickly thinks a different style of facial hair might be the answer but Jerry tells George that he has to get a job. Elaine is on vacation for a month in Europe with David Puddy. If he is lucky, he will not “come back in a body bag.” Kramer finds butter is better than shaving cream. George is hired for the job at Play Now because of his use of the cane. Jerry is informed that Bania is going to follow him on the NBC showcase. George sprains his good leg and begins favoring the other leg to which Play Now buys him a motorized cart.
George tries to break up with his girlfriend, Maura, only she doesn’t agree. Jerry has purchased cuff links worn by Jerry Lewis in Cinderfella. He plans to use them as a conversation starter with Lewis when he goes to an upcoming roast at the Friar’s Club. George insists that all he needs as a conversation starter is the fact that they share the same name “…Jerry”. Elaine’s new boyfriend puzzles and intrigues her with his secretive behavior. Jerry suggests that perhaps he is a super-hero concealing his secret identity. With robberies occurring in the building, Kramer has obtained a strongbox to hold his valuables. He needs to find a place to hide his key. A place that no one knows, except him.
George applies for an interview with Kruger Industrial Smoothing and gets the job, but notices in Kruger’s office a picture of Kruger and his family at the beach with a not-so-bald George in the background. He recounts a story at the beach when he threw some kids’ boombox in the ocean only to be later confronted by their father-his new boss. Now, George is worried that he may get fired once Kruger recognizes him from the picture. So, he decides to steal the picture and have himself airbrushed out. Elaine can’t sleep because her neighbor forgot to turn off the alarm clock before leaving for Paris. She blows the circuit to turn it off and inadvertently starves the neighbors cat. Jerry dates a dermatologist and is put off by her holier than thou attitude.
