While Elaine is apartment sitting for Jerry who's off to Minneapolis to work, the place is burglarized. Jerry returns to find his TV, VCR, computer and answering machine missing. Turns out Kramer left the door open but got distracted leaving the place wide open. Jerry begins to think that George's suggestion that he move to a newer and bigger place may have merit. Elaine would very much to get her hands on his apartment and away from her singing roommate. Turns out George decides he wants the place as well. Written by

I Hope I Get It
