Storyline

While Elaine is apartment sitting for Jerry who's off to Minneapolis to work, the place is burglarized. Jerry returns to find his TV, VCR, computer and answering machine missing. Turns out Kramer got distracted leaving the place wide open. Jerry begins to think that George's suggestion that he move to a newer and bigger place may have merit. Elaine would very much like to get her hands on his apartment and away from her singing roommate. Turns out George decides he wants the place as well. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

[a police officer at Jerry's apartment, taking notes of articles stolen]
Cop: Let's see, that's one tv, a stereo, one leather jacket, a VCR, and a computer. Is that about it?
Elaine: Answering machine.
Jerry: *Answering machine*. Boy, I hate the idea of somebody out there returning my calls.
Cop: What do you mean?
Jerry: It's a joke.
Cop: I see. Well, Mr Seinfeld, we'll look into it and we'll let you know if we, you know, if we find anything.
Jerry: Do you ever find anything?
Cop: No.

Everyone is either a Jerry or a George. Kramer is 80% George 20% Jerry. Larry David is 65% Jerry 35% George. Tom Cruise is 95% Jerry. Elaine is 140% Jerry. George is 10% Jerry but Jerry is 0% George. My dad was a George but my mom was a Jerry. That was tough
