Jerry’s apartment is robbed after Kramer fails to close the door after stopping by. George tries to convince Jerry to move (as well as Elaine, so she can take the apartment), but a fight between Jerry and George over the new apartment prevents anyone from moving. This is the first instance of Kramer’s signature “slide” into the apartment.
Monk’s Café’s first appearance of the series. George compliments the coffee shop’s bathroom mirrors, saying how he looks like Robert Wagner when he looks in it.
