Storyline

A co-worker of Elaine's thinks Elaine is called Susie, and Elaine doesn't bother to correct her, when she badmouths Elaine to "Susie." Elaine complains of this to Jerry, who commiserates with her. Later, Peggy gets "Susie" called in front of Peterman, who demands that Elaine be there also. Elaine finds a way to wriggle out of the situation so that neither realizes Susie doesn't exist. Meanwhile, Kramer puts 100 dollars on a basketball game in Jerry's name with Mike, the guy Jerry called a phony in "The Parking Space." When Kramer attends the game, he gets in a fight with the players, causing Jerry to win his bet. Mike doesn't have enough money to pay Jerry, however, so he tells him that he'll fix his trunk. As he's looking at it, Jerry doesn't notice him and closes the trunk on Mike's hands. Mike thinks this is a classic case of having his thumbs broken because he can't pay, so he promises he'll get the money. Later, as he's trying to fix it again, Mike falls into the trunk, which ...

Goofs

Mike should've been able to get out of Jerry's trunk easily - sedan trunks are equipped with release handles and/or levers to operate the split-folding seats. Mike should've been able to either pull the handle (even with broken thumbs) or open the folding seats and get out of the car through Jerry's backseat area. See more »

One of their zaniest
22 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The zaniness of this episode makes it one of the series best. George's ploy of wandering off when his girlfriend says "We have to talk" and then just not returning all night and avoiding her for days, trying desperately to prevent a breakup before the big Yankee Ball was most loopy.

When Elaine is called "Suze" she flies off the handle, explaining that any other version of the name "Susie" is fine, but NEVER "Suze." Only Elaine would get so worked up over a nickname that is based on a mistake about what her name is.

A third wild plot involves Kramer, unable to bet because of his old gambling problem, having no problem placing a bet for Jerry with his new bookie friend. I loved the way Mike the bookie is terrified of Jerry while locked inside his trunk, hearing Jerry and Elaine laugh about "doing away with Susie." The capper for me was near the end when Peterman recalled all sorts of things about Susie, oblivious to the fact that she never existed.
