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 ...

[George's answering machine greeting]
George Costanza: [singing to the tune of the theme from "The Greatest American Hero"] # Believe it or not, George isn't at home, / Please leave a message at the beep. / I must be out, or I'd pick up the phone, / Where could I be? / Believe it or not, I'm not home. #

My favorite Episode
14 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is my favorite episode of Seinfeld. It has all the necessary elements of comedy; a farcical plot, a moral, and lots of people acting stupid. I love Elaine's whole story that was a misunderstanding, Jerry's "beef" with the bookie, and George's need for a great entrance. I was also very happy that George finally got a happy ending, and didn't end up looking like a fool, although he should have.

Favorite Quotes:

Peggy: "Susie?!"

Elaine: "I'm not Susie. I'm Elaine."

Peggy: "I've been calling you Susie."

Elaine: Oh, I hadn't noticed."
