Brilliant. Just brilliant. I'll tell you the story and you tell me what you think. The four plan to go an engagement so they go to buy the gift and George parks in a handicap spot because they thought it will only take them few minutes to get the gift. However, and as usual, it takes them long and when they're back a handicapped woman is injured because of the illegal parking and some angry bunch of people smash George's car which is registered under his father's name. Frank was supposed to receive an award for the outstanding service he gives to handicapped people but it's later taken from him because the car is registered under his name. As a punishment, George had to work as a butler for his father which was once George's idea for the pilot. You want more? Well, there is more of course because this is Seinfeld we're talking about here and not just any regular sitcom. George and Kramer go to visit the injured lady and Kramer falls in love with her and they buy her an old wheelchair which later in the episode we see the lady in it going down some hill and not capable of stopping it because the wheelchair was too old. The friend who was supposedly getting engaged, decides to leave his fiancée and the four go back to return the gift for refund and when they search for a parking space, they find one next to a fire hydrant! I guess you need to watch it.
