Storyline

Kenny Rogers' Roasters sets up shop across the street from Jerry and Kramer's apartment. Unfortunately, their unusually large chicken sign causes problems for everybody. Kramer and Jerry wind up switching apartments because of it - and personalities. Jerry is freaked out by a wooden doll in Kramer's apartment and Newman gets Kramer hooked on Kenny Roger's chicken. Elaine gets comfortable in her position as president of the catalog but is quickly accused of abusing her company credit card benefits. Especially when Elaine buys George an expensive hat and George purposefully leaves it at his girlfriend's apartment in hopes that it will score another date. Meanwhile, Jerry's old college friend has lunch with him and winds up getting fired, and takes a new job at the Chicken Roaster's. Written by halo1k

Trivia

Due to Elaine's getting caught over her misuse of the corporate account, she says she's "going down like Nixon". She later asks if she can fire the accountant who is pursuing her case. This act parallels Nixon's firing of Archibald Cox, the prosecutor who was pursuing Nixon over Watergate. See more »

Goofs

The clock George steals from Heather early on is just a clock, with no alarm function. When he meets up with Heather later on, an alarm goes off, letting Heather know George had her clock. The clock Goerge takes out of the bag has a mechanical alarm and is not the same clock he stole. See more »
