Storyline

Kramer tries to get a "refund" for Jerry's broken stereo. Jerry is against the idea until he gets a mysterious package in the mail. Newman accuses Jerry of mail fraud when Uncle Leo signs for the package and an explosion is heard while he is talking to Jerry. George, meanwhile, gets involved with "Photo Store Shelia" when she accidentally slips an enticing photo in George's pictures. George decides to send one back, but the plan backfires. And Elaine gets a rash and is barred from every doctor in New York when she takes a peek at her medical chart. Written by halo1k

Trivia

In a July 2012 NYTimes interview, Seinfeld talked about his love for the legendary 'Who's On First?' comedy routine performed by Bud Abbott and Lou Costello. He said he experienced a 'Who's on First?'-like moment in this episode when he and Kramer shared the following bit of dialogue: Jerry: "You don't even know what a write-off is." Kramer: "Do you?" Jerry: "No, I don't." Kramer: "But they do, and they are the ones writing it off." See more »

Goofs

When Jerry is talking to Uncle Leo on the phone and telling him to open the package (containing Jerry's broken stereo), the stereo is clearly visible in the background, intact and in Jerry's apartment. See more »
