Note: The Phone Message replaced the controversial unaired episode “The Bet” in which Kramer encouraged Elaine to buy a gun.
George is concerned when his girlfriend doesn’t return his calls. He begins leaving angry, almost hostile messages on her machine. Later, he discovers that she was out of town at the time and unable to check her messages. Before she can hear the messages and break up with George, he and Jerry create a plan to get into her apartment and switch the tape.
