Kramer is walking down a street and sees a man littering. He calls the guy a "pig" but doing so offends a cop who is standing a few feet away. Of course, the cop isn't paying attention and the scofflaw gets away. Kramer decides that he needs a new look and goes with an eye patch. George runs into Gary Fogel, a man who was having cancer and decided not to tell him. But he did tell Jerry, who reveals that he made himself nearly sick being nice to the guy. The next day, George meets with Gary, who drops a bombshell that he never actually had cancer and that the operation revealed that it was benign. Kramer decides to go apologize to the cop on his way to get a book signed by Elaine's ex-boyfriend Jake Jarmel (see episode "The Sniffing Accountant"). The cop reveals a story about a brown Dodge sedan that has become his "white whale" - the scofflaw has racked up more parking tickets than anyone in New York and that he almost nailed him until Kramer made his remark. Kramer goes to the book ...

When Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld
) tells Kramer (Michael Richards
) he looks like a pirate, Kramer's response, "I want to be a pirate" is a reference to episode 5.2, Seinfeld: The Puffy Shirt
(1993), where he tells Jerry he'll be the first pirate in the new trend if he wears the puffy shirt, and Jerry says, "I don't wanna be a pirate." See more
