While sitting in the coffee shop, Jerry and George resolve to grow up and take life more seriously. Jerry decides to call the woman he recently broke up with - because she shushed him. For his part, George has been thinking a lot about his former girlfriend Susan. After imagining the ideal life they could have together, he goes to her apartment and proposes. She accepts and George almost immediately begins to have second thoughts, especially after Jerry breaks up with his girlfriend a second time. Elaine meanwhile is having trouble with a neighbor's barking dog and enlists the help of two professionals to get rid of the problem: Kramer and Newman. Written by

Newman is often referenced in relation to infamous New York serial killer David Berkowitz, the 'Son of Sam'. He claims to have taken over his postal route and inherited his mailbag which he offers as collateral for Kramer's gambling debts. Berkowitz claimed that his actions were forced upon him by his neighbours dog and Newman states the same when he helps Elaine kidnap her neighbour's dog. When the police turn up to arrest him Newman asks 'How come it took you so long?' which is exactly what Berkowitz said when he was arrested. See more
