Elaine, newly minted as a volunteer for senior citizens, recruits Jerry and George to volunteer as well. Sid and Ben are later shown in the gang’s usual booth, having a similar nonsensical conversation about women.

FLORIDA (map)
Jerry mentions Florida in his opening monologue, joking that Spring Break was started thousands of years ago, when life expectancy was only 30, and people would thus move to Florida in their late teenage years.
