gs: James Patrick Stuart (Brett) Gedde Watanabe (Mr. Oh) Sab Shimono (Executive #1) John Bowman (Teddy) Jock Plotnick (Crew Leader) George Wallace (Doctor) Toshi Toda (Mr. Tanaka) Goh Misawa (Mr. Yamaguchi) Tony V. (Clicky) Akane Nelson (Executive #2) Cherie Hankal (Nurse) Richard Herd (Wilhelm)

Elaine's new boyfriend, Brett, is obsessed with designer furniture and the song "Desperado." Jerry spots an umbrella salesman using the sales technique he invented. The salesman says it was someone else. Hundreds of twelve-cent royalty checks keep arriving from Jerry's brief appearance on a Japanese television. Kramer warns George that the carpet cleaners he hired are actually a front for a religious cult. Intrigued, George tries to be converted, but they're not interested. Kramer meets some Japanese businessman and he takes them on the town and to the cleaners. He is a little confused about the exchange rate. Brett delivers a large chest of drawers to Kramer and thinks that Jerry might be jealous. Kramer thinks the TV pilot that Jerry and George did would be perfect for Japanese television. They pitch it to a couple of Japanese TV executives. Elaine tries to find a song that she and Brett can share. Kramer puts his Japanese friends up at his place. They're sleeping in the chest of drawers. Jerry caught in the rain meets the man in the street that claims credit for the twirl. He also meets Brett who is convinced Jerry is down on his luck. George gets the cleaners to do the offices at Yankee Stadium where they find a new recruit. Because of the humidity from the hot tub, Kramer's guests get stuck in the chest. Jerry, with writer's cramp from check signing, uses a fire ax to open the chest. That scares the Japanese guests and injures Brett who passes out.

b: 07-Nov-96 pc: 807 w: Steve O'Donnell and Tom Gammill & Max Pross d: Andy Ackerman

NOTE: Viewer Tony Antoniou notes that the person playing Carl Farbman shown in the red Ferrari was the Transportation Coordinator for the show, Dave Pierce.
The furniture designer with whom Elaine's boyfriend is so obsessed is Carl Farbman. Farbman was also the name of the architecht who designed the house in "The Hamptons".

As previously stated, Carl Farbman was not the architecht of the house in "The Hamptons". Ben, the doctor, was named Mike Farman.

I would like to thank Tony Antoniou for mentioning that I was cast in the part of Carl Farbman. I actually had a line that read: "There must be something you can do for that young man" , but it hit the cutting room floor Sad Oh well, best laid plans Smile Best regards to all you Seinfeld Fans! Respectfully, Dave Pierce (aka: Carl Farbman)

GEORGE:Who buys an umbrella anyway? get 'em for free in the coffee shop in the metal cans.

JERRY: (as if speaking to a moron) Those belong to people.

That's gold.

But in English (which we gave to you), we spell it cheques (from the French, which English is partially based on, thanks to the Norman invasion post-Roman Empire - but that's all probably double dutch to a country that can't even admit its own history, let alone learn any others...). Twisted Evil

Does anyone know if there is a connection between the song Desperado and the Snakebite poster in the liquor store window? If so, who is behind it?
