Elaine asks a fellow coworker if she’s ever faked “it.”

Aaron picks up Elaine from work to go to My Fair Lady…with Helen and Morty. Morty mentions that Harry Fleming used to have an office in the building…and a deli on the first floor (“you don’t get corned beef like that anymore”).
Where Jerry boos, hisses and heckles Toby out of the building, where she runs into oncoming traffic and loses her pinky toe.
Elaine gets promoted due to Pendant’s takeover by Matsushimi, a Japanese conglomerate. However, Elaine is later released, as the company is collapsed after Elaine fails to tell Lippman he forgot his handkerchief (thanks to a mouthful of Jujyfruits), setting off a chain reaction that spelled the end of Pendant Publishing (and Kramer’s coffee table book). As a result, Elaine “becomes” George, unemployed and defeated.
