gs: Daniel Hagen (Rick) Joel McCrary (Don) Michael Kagan (Willie) Dee Freeman (Service Assistant) Rif Hutton (Salesman) Howard Mann (Willie Sr.) Steve Susskind (Customer #1) Loretta Fox (Customer #2) Catherine Schreiber (Saleswoman) Unknown (Cab Driver (uncredited)) Patrick Warburton (Puddy)

Jerry plans to buy a car with an insider deal from Puddy, who's been promoted to a car salesman. George warns Jerry to watch out for car dealers. Kramer takes the car Jerry is planning to buy for a test drive with another salesman. Elaine returns from a lunch with Puddy at Arby's. Puddy offers Jerry a "high five." Kramer misses the turn to go back to the dealership; instead, he plans to give the car a full test of a Kramer daily routine. Hungry, George seeks out something to eat and must settle for a vending machine candy bar. Only he can't get one from the machine with a crinkled dollar so he asks a mechanic (who he knows has a crisp dollar) for assistance and is refused service. Finally, when he gets the correct change, the Twix bar hangs. With his errands run, Kramer's next test is to take the car to the limits of its fuel tank. Irritated (when isn't he), George seeks assistance from a salesman. When they return to the machine, the Twix bar George had hanging and the one behind it are gone. George suspects the mechanic. Elaine and Puddy have a fight and break up. Jerry's insider deal is off. George confronts the mechanic. Jerry wants George to help him get a good deal; however, George is only interested in getting back at the mechanic. The car salesman riding with Kramer really gets into driving below empty. George tries to complain about the mechanic, but gets into a debate about candy bars. In an attempt to get a great deal on his car, Jerry tries to put Elaine and Puddy "in a relationship today." George sets up a candy bar lineup, to implicate the mechanic, only to find his lineup being eaten. Elaine and Puddy get back together and Jerry is going to get his deal, until Puddy says "high five me" to Jerry, one time too many. Kramer and the salesman, with the dealership in sight, decide instead to go for it.

NOTE: Jerry Balsam notes this is one of those rare episodes where Jerry's apartment isn't seen. Jeremy DeMai notes that this is the second one for this season.
The role of the cab driver was played by someone who seems familiar to me, but I'm not sure where from. Since the role was uncredited, I'm not quite sure who it was. Can anyone offer a theory as to the identity? I have a guess, but I want to hear other opinions first. I know he is involved with the production, because I saw him in the crowd with Jerry accepting The People's Choice Award, that were given out the Sunday after this episode aired. Seinfeld of course, got the favorite comedy award. I wonder how they fare at the following week's Golden Globe Awards?
On that same Sunday, a new American Express commercial debuted featuring Jerry and his hero, Superman. The voice of Superman is that of Patrick (David Puddy) Warburton and Lois Lane is played by George's girlfriend, Tara, in "The Blood". Too bad Teri Hatcher couldn't have played Lois in that commercial! Also seen in the commercial is Jack Larson, who played Jimmy Olsen in The Adventures of Superman.

Kramer refers to the dealer in the car with him as Stan, his name was rick, when he suggested that they leave the gas station and keep going.

In the last message, the "Arby's" in the message header is a link, but the URL should have been linked also: http://www.users.cloud9.net/~dab/arbys/

There's a small error in the script for this episode. In the opening scene, George says "suddenly your on your back like a turtle, not a turnip as indicated

Classic George:

'One step nearer and we're walkin!'

'You don't know what I'm doing!'

"Kip , Lem , Sol... shortname ! Is not gonna get away with this !"

Comedy genius delivered by Jason Alexander who went on to marry Britany Spears I believe.

No, i believe it was Ashley Simpson. She lip-synced her wedding vows.

The finest George episode and my choice as #1 overall. Ironically, the Kramer activities get in the way and aren't all that funny.

Funny, I feel just the opposite. I thought the George scenes were a decent premise but he was shrill and too over the top and I found Kramer's bit hilarious. Femininas!

I agree J. I thought Kramer's story and acting in this are great. George doesn't let it build, he's way too over the top from the beginning.

I'm with J. Chiles and Gendison on this one, too. Kramer's stuff is about the only thing funny about this episode.

Kramer's and George's performance were both terrific. But does anyone realize that they're at the dealership for approximately four to five hours? They enter as Puddy and Elaine come back from lunch (12:30-1:00) and leave when it's completely dark. Plus George doesn't have enough money to buy one Twix, let alone seven for a "cookie line-up." This is not a complaint, just an observation. The only downfall that I have found is they never did show the Christmas card. High Five. On The Flip Side

That's the deal at dealerships. Though Puddy doesn't seem to do it knowingly, salesman are trained that the longer a person stays in the dealrship, the better the chance that they will buy a car.

If you have a day to kill, want to learn more about buying a new car, and want to see one pissed off dude, go into a dealership and act very interested in a car or two or three. Talk about and ask about everything under the sun about each - drive each - talk financing on each - buying v. leasing - talk maintenance on each. Then, after about three hours, get up and say, Well, I'll c'ya!
