gs: Jon Gries (Rusty) Jonathan Penner (Zach) Ted Rooney (Crichton) Sonya Eddy (Rebecca DeMornay) Merrin Dungey (Cashier) Kevin Ruf (Security Guard) Heather Morgan (Server) Lauren Bowles (Waitress) Mark Daniel Cade (Walter) Sloppy Joe (Hobo Joe) Wayne Knight (Newman) Barney Martin (Morty) Liz Sheridan (Helen) John O'Hurley (Peterman) Len Lesser (Uncle Leo)

Kramer "hangs-out" more than usual at Jerry's place. Jerry and George are at a bookstore where George hopes to meet women and Jerry spots Uncle Leo shoplifting. George takes a large book into the bathroom with him. Elaine is at the annual Peterman party, where everyone is anxious to know if she is going to dance again and when. The bookstore makes George buy the book that he took into the bathroom. Elaine didn't dance at the party instead she and a man named Zach got drunk and made out at their table. George suggests that she tell everyone that she and Zach are dating, that way she won't be known as the "office skank." Kramer and Newman plan to implement Kramer's idea for running a rickshaw service in the city. They are getting a rickshaw from Hong Kong, now they need to find someone to pull it. Jerry confronts Uncle Leo about the stolen book. Uncle Leo claims it is a right as a senior citizen. Elaine catches her man with another woman. Kramer and Newman attempt to interview potential rickshaw pullers from a collection of homeless men; however, their first candidate takes off with the rickshaw. George tries to return his book, but is told the book has been flagged as having been in the bathroom. Jerry rats out Uncle Leo at the bookstore.

Jerry talks with his parents about Uncle Leo's theft and finds out about his prior, the crime of passion of which his mother will not tell him the details. His parents also inform him of the senior approach; it is not stealing if you need it. Elaine plans to use the cheating angle to protect her reputation. Jerry tries to talk with Uncle Leo, but the only thing Uncle Leo tells him is that he never forgets when he's been betrayed. George discovers his book has been flagged in all the databases as a bathroom book. Elaine's plan goes awry when Peterman demands that she help Zach get off the "yam yam" by helping him to quit cold turkey. Jerry has a nightmare about Uncle Leo. Newman and Kramer discover where the rickshaw is and Kramer loses the contest to determine who will pull the other. George tries to donate his book to charity, but even they won't take the marked book. When Kramer gets tired pulling Newman in the rickshaw up a hill and lets it go, the results are disastrous for Elaine's recovered "boyfriend" Zach. George plans to steal a good copy of the book, so he can return it to get his money back. Just as Jerry finds out from the manager that the manager has been told that the store needs to make a good example out of a shoplifter, any shoplifter, as long as they catch him in the act.

While interviewing the homeless, Kramer says to Rusty, "I once knew a horse named Rusty, no offense." Is he referring to Rusty, the horse from the handsome cab ride in 'The Rye'?

Someone told me before that Jerry's bike is the only thing in the apartment that is not used in the whole seriese. Well in this episode you can see that Kramer uses the bike.

I love it when, after Leo is busted, Jerry says "Helllllo?" and Leo nods and still gives a pathetic "Hello" - like he is bound by some code to do so.

There's a fantastic exchange of words between Jerry and Kramer in the bookstore when they see Leo:

JERRY: (Pointing) Hey, there's Leo.
KRAMER: Oh? Who's Leo?
JERRY: Uncle Leo.
KRAMER: Oh, yeah. Right. Uncle, Leo. Forgot his first name..

Haha..."forgot his first name"! Hilarious.

is there a script to this episode where it shows the monologue of Kramer doing the stand up in Jerry's apartment? "What's the deal with politics, I don't get it?"

JERRY: (Pointing) He's over there in the overcoat. If you could just kind of put a scare into him.. You know, set him straight..

GAURD: (Into his walkie-talkie) We have a 51-50 in paperbacks. All units respond.

JERRY: '51-50'? That - that's just a scare, right?

I love how Rebecca DeMornay ties two plots together.
"Mister, we're trying to help the homeless heare-it's bad enough that we have some nut out
there trying to strap 'em to a rickshaw!" Laughing

There is a scene where Kramer and Newman are making sausage, and while this organ music is playing in a sort of jumpy, samba rhythm. Anybody remember that one? I don't remember the main plots, but I always loved that one scene especially.
