Coming from an outing to a flea market in New Jersey, Elaine and George damage Jerry's car when George drives over a large pothole. When they get to his apartment they conveniently find a parking space right in front of Jerry's building. As George tries to back in however, someone tries to take the spot by driving in nose first. With neither car able to park, it leads to an all day argument. Elaine meanwhile has to come up with a story about the damage to the car.

The scenes that take place on the street were really filmed outdoors. The studio audience was seated in a large set of bleachers behind the camera crew. As the day wore on, the darker lighting of the later scenes is a result of the filming taking place much later in the day. See more
Right before George was about to park a car, it was shown that they were in a wide street, with (at least) 3 lanes in their direction. So, later when George and Mike were arguing about the parking space, it doesn't make any sense that a truck driver wouldn't be able to pass around them. See more
Man, that Michael Jordan is so phony.
