Elaine is having nightmares and sleepless nights due to her neighbor's inconsideracy. The neighbor is out of the country and has left her alarm clock set for 3:30 a.m.. George gets a dream job at a very badly run company, his new boss seems familiar to him, then a photo in the boss's office reminds him of "the boom box incident." Fearing that he might lose his new position, George listens to Kramer's advice and plots to get hold of the photograph and get it retouched. Kramer's dissatisfied with the meat he is getting with his sandwiches, so he obtains a meat slicer. Kramer suggests Elaine that she short circuit her neighbor's apartment and blow the circuit breaker. Jerry is going to go out on a date with a doctor that Elaine recommended, but the date is annoying when the doctor can only talk about saving lives. The photo lab screws up the retouching by eliminating the boss from the photograph and not George. Jerry discovers the doctor is dermatologist. George recommends a carefully orchestrated revenge date. Kramer uses the meat slicer to help Elaine feed the neighbor's cat; the power outage shut off the automatic feeder. Jerry's revenge date goes well, until he is reminded of the phrase "skin cancer." Elaine is still using the slicer and finds it very handy, until she tries to even her high heels. George goes back to the photo shop to find they put the boss back in the photograph as a cartoon. He now needs to obtain a new bare-chested photo of his boss or find a new job, perhaps the Coast Guard. Jerry's doctor date would provide the perfect opportunity for him as she does skin cancer screenings. Elaine keeps the slicer problem from Kramer by threatening him with seeing some circus clowns. Later, Kramer goes to her apartment to pick up the slicer; she fixes it and quickly shoves it out the door. Kramer sees the dinged up blade and tries to get back into her apartment, but he takes the knob of the door. Jerry has developed an allergic reaction to something as hives have broken out on his neck. Elaine discovers she is trapped inside her apartment. Jerry goes down to George's workplace and confronts the doctor about his hives. She leaves and Kramer, in his white meat slicing coat, steps in as the skin cancer doctor and spots a growth on George's boss. George gets his bare-chested photo. Kramer wants to come clean about the growth; George tells him he will tell his boss to see another doctor. George's boss doesn't think it is a problem, a ten-year-old photo of him shows the mole, it hasn't changed. He also relates to George the story about the dumb guy on the beach with the boom box. He mentions to George (as others have) that he sure has lost a lot of hair in the past ten years. Despite all of that, he gets to keep the job. Later, the guys keep Elaine company as they wait for the locksmith to come and open her apartment.

NOTE: Viewer Kyle Westphal was the first to note that George says the incident took place in 1989 and Kruger said the picture was from 10 years ago. A difference of two years.
Jeff Holland notes that Kramer again uses the name of Von Nostrand again. He also used it in "The Nose Job" and "The Pilot (1)". Chris Peterson adds that Kramer also used the name again when trying to obtain Elaine's medical records in "The Package".
John "Snapman!!!" Thorpe notes that at the end of the episode, George still appears in the picture if you look closely.
When Kruger comes to the Festivus dinner at the end of "The Strike", he mentions Von Nostrand when he sees Kramer, who agrees silently.....

Kramer's first line is WRONG - he says "Rugby scrum" as in the football game originated in Rugby England !

Kramer: You'll get used to it. It's like a grubby scrub.

Kramer: You'll get used to it. It's like a Rugby scrum.
Very Happy

At the start of the episode Elaine says, "hurry or we'll miss the previews." But they are going to the Drake's ingagement party; not the movies.

Elaine: Can it cut that thin?

Kramer: Oh, I've cut slices so thin, I couldn't even see them.

Elaine: How did you know you cut it?

Kramer: Well, I guess I just assumed.

Sara: I enjoy the challenge of medicine. Naturally you have no idea what it's like to have someone's life depending on you.

Jerry: Well, I have this neighbor...

Sara: A joke. Do you have any idea how it feels like to save someone's life?

Jerry: Is it anything like hitting a home run in softball?

Sara: No.

Jerry: Cause I hit a whopper last week!

This is one of the best episodes I think, buying a slicer! I just wonder where they came up with the idea.

Kramer - "I've cut slices so thin I couldn't even see them!"
Elaine - "Then how'd you know you cut it?"
Kramer - "Well... I guess I just assumed."

it's actually "fibre from shirt on left shoulder"

George: Wait a second, she did a skin cancer screening at Peterman

Elaine: Uh huh

George: Could she do that at Krueger?

Elaine: I don't know, I guess

George: So i set up a screening, everyone takes their shirt off, and click i snap me a picture of a bare chested Krueger!

Elaine: You got a little thing for this fella'?

this along with The Marine Biologist, and The Opposite are in my top 5 if not my top 3 favorite episodes

Elaine: You remember that next door neighbor of mine, the apartment that always smells like potatoes?

Jerry: Your whole building smells like potatoes.

Elaine: This jackass goes to Paris, leaves the alarm on. It's been beeping since 3:30 this morning.

Kramer: You know, that happened to Lomez, so he blew his neighbor's circuit.


Elaine: Kramer, my neighbor has a cat. When you blew the power, we must've shut off the automatic feeder.

Kramer: See, that's the same thing that happened to Lomez.

Elaine: What did he do about it?

Kramer: Well, he moved to a hotel and the cat eventually died.

I love this episode. One of my top 10.

George: I know. The only way to fix it now, is to get a whole new photo of Kruger.

Jerry: You can do that.

George: Without his shirt on.

Jerry: You can't do that. Well, maybe Kruger wasn't the place for you.

George: It seemed so disorganized.

Jerry: I understand.

George: What about the Coast Guard? Seems like a lot of pride there, a lot of tradition.

Jerry: True. You mean, for you?

George: I think.

Jerry: What about your sea sickness?

George: Maybe I could be a land guy.

Jerry: I don't know if they have land guys.

George: Someone's have to unhook the boat before it leaves..... the place!

I hate to nit-pick (OK, I love to nit-pick).

Van Nostrin, (it's actually Van Nostrand), it's actually Kruger, not Krueger.

I simply type dialogue based on my memory, as opposed to the "copy and paste" method.

well the spelling of names of sitcom characters is difficult when you don't have a copy of the script

But the exact recitation of a script line IS easy. (?)

My nit-pick was meant to be a sarcastic rebuttal to the not so subtle poke that I said "lint" instead of "fiber" when recalling Kramer's hysterical "medical" assessment of Kruger. It is pretty much accepted here that people don't get too worked up over every minor slipped vowel or that’s all we’d get done.

BTW, if you want access to the script (error-filled as they are), they are only click away on this very site.

Jerry: How did you get that slicer?
Kramer: If you buy enough meat they'll give you anything.

Isn't the "If you buy enough meat they'll give you anything" in response to "How did you get that (white) coat"?

Kramer is just CLASSIC as Dr. Van Nostrand in this episode. Notice when George wants to rush Kramer into the room to "examine" Kruger, how Kramer holds up his hand to slow things down while he assumes the Van Nostrand character (especially his facial expression). Then, when Kramer comes out of the room to speak with George, he holds the character for a few seconds until the door is closed and then reassumes the Kramer posture. Never fails to crack me up!

Jorg and Cramer are funny. Jimmy reads thousands of lines from Jorg and Cramer in the scripts everyday. Gerry and Alayne are funny too.
