Jerry frets over leaving his incompetent barber. Elaine enlists Kramer to participate in a bachelor auction.
The gang criticizes Jerry’s terrible haircut, and Newman comes in on a stealth mission to steal one of Jerry’s hairs. Enzo comes to confront Jerry and Gino, but ends up bonding with his nephew over “Edward Scissorhands.” George gets the idea to show up at SanaLac regardless if he has been hired or not.
