Elaine’s co-worker calls her Susie by mistake but Elaine pretends to be Susie to protect her reputation. Kramer sets his watch an hour ahead. George avoids his girlfriend because he suspects she’s about to break up with him and he wants her to help him make a great entrance at the Yankee Ball. Kramer places bets on Jerry’s behalf with Mike Moffitt, who thinks Jerry is a murderer.
