yes, I agree Ronda, I never saw this "bumper" part. Hmmm. Also, when jerry badgers his mother about the message she wrote elaine, it ws very similar to the conversation elaine and boyfriend jake jarmel about the exclamation point. I think jerrry says something about "how did she sound?" "what was the tone in her voice?"
Much like jake stating, " I just took down the message, i didnt know I had to capture the mood of each caller.
