gs: John O'Hurley (Mr. Peterman) Richard Herd (Mr. Wilhelm) Lee Arenberg (Mike Moffit) Shannon Kenny (Allison) Megan Cole (Peggy) Jane Edith Wilson (Woman)

Kramer decides that daylight saving time isn't coming fast enough, so he sets his watch ahead an hour. Mike, the guy who once referred to Jerry as "a phony," has become a bookie. Peggy, a co-worker of Elaine's calls her "Susie." George is excited about Steinbrenner's ball. He hopes to show off his tall blonde girlfriend with a grand entrance. Instead, she says she wants to talk. He runs away. "If she can't find me, she can't break up with me." He really wants to make that big entrance at the ball. She gets stuck listening to George's "Believe it or not, George isn't at home" answering message. Kramer tells Jerry that he owes Mike $100 for a bet he made on that night's Knicks game. Only Jerry never made the bet; Kramer did it for him. In fact, Kramer attends the game and gets into a fight with a key player that causes Jerry to win his bet. Peggy starts talking to "Susie" about Elaine's memo. Peterman hearing about the complaints demands to see Elaine, Peggy and "Susie" in his office; first thing in the morning. Mike can't pay Jerry, so he offers to help him with his trunk problem, but instead gets his thumbs broken for the trouble. Kramer breaks up with George on behalf of Allison. Elaine makes it through the morning meeting. Mike gets trapped in Jerry's trunk. Elaine and Jerry, in his car, decide it would be best to eliminate "Susie." George reconciles with Kramer. Elaine delivers the eulogy at "Susie's" wake, much to the confusion of Peggy. Kramer, with George, makes a spectacular entrance at the ball. Mike escapes from Jerry's trunk and accuses him of murder. The same fate befalls Elaine that befell George; Peterman puts her in charge of a foundation in "Susie's" honor.

NOTE: The lyrics to George's singing phone message:
Believe it or not,
George isn't at home,
Please leave a message at the beep.
I must be out, or I'd pick up the phone,
Where could I be?
Believe it or not, I'm not home.

It was the theme from Greatest American Hero/Believe It or Not, sung by Joey Scarbury. It was a TV show in the 70s with a guy who becomes a superhero that isn't very good (no training). It was a catchy tune, and is better remembered than the show was.

Long live the greatest sitcom of all time!

That answering machine message was awesome!

Believe it or not, George isn't at home,
Just leave a message at the beep,
I must be out or I'd pick up the phone,
Where could I be?
Believe it or not, I'm not home!

Well I've posted this on another thread, but I'll cross-post since I've got a few emails lately. The music that has been edited to fit the machine message as closely as possible is available at http://www.jamesdarr.com . Enjoy!

In this episode, Kramer sets his watch forward for daylight savings time, but in "The Engagement", Kramer states that he doesn't wear a watch, and tells time by the sun.

In Episode 117 "The Hot Tub" Kramer also mentions he doesn't use an alarm clock, since he relies on his "mental alarm". That could explain why he doesn't wear a watch, but it still doesn't explain why he has one in this episode a year later.

If anyone is interested, the "real," original lyrics to George's message, correctly identified as Joey Scarbury above, are:
Believe it or not I'm walking on air
I never thought I could be so free
Flying away on a wing and a prayer
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me.

I absolutely love this message. I'm trying to find a way to download the song without the words so i can use the message myself. If anyone knows a way, let me know...

P.S. Seinfeld is the best show on earth! Very Happy
