Germaphobe Jerry accidentally knocks his girlfriend's toothbrush into her toilet, and after retrieving it, she uses it before he can stop her.

When a Chinese restaurant won't deliver to her address, Elaine tries to get the food delivered by using a janitor's closet in a different building. George drops his keys in a pothole, which gets filled and he tries to dig it out. Written by Jim
