In this two-part episode, Kramer and Newman scheme to make money on recycling by taking a mail truck to Michigan full of bottles and cans. But their road trip takes a turn for the worst (literally) when Jerry's car is stolen by a psychotic auto mechanic and they track Jerry's car out in the Midwest. Elaine outbids Sue Ellen Mischkie by double her budget for JFK's golf clubs and leaves them in Jerry's car. George gets a project from his boss Wilhelm but doesn't hear the other end of what he's supposed to do. Steinbrenner sees the results of George's project and has him committed to a mental hospital.

Wayne Knight credits this episode with prompting him to become healthier. After filming several takes of the last scene, in which Newman and Kramer dash through a corn field, Knight began experiencing heart palpitations from running so animatedly. After visiting his doctor, he was told that his blood pressure was very high and that he was close to developing diabetes. He thus began an active attempt to get into better shape. Knight has since shed much of his formerly trademark girth and is a much slimmer and healthier man. See more
Jerry claims that when Kramer and Newman put their groceries under the hood of his car, that "The Triple A guy said I was this close to sucking a muffin down the carburetor". However, Saab 900s are fuel injected. See more
