George’s wink causes issues for the gang, particularly Kramer, who he inadvertently lets take Mr. Steinbrenner’s signed birthday card.

Holly later comes over to cook Jerry dinner, where she (along with Elaine and James) discover what’s really happening to the meat.

Monk’s Café
Jerry, George and Elaine argue about whether a blind or deaf date is better. Jerry accidentally squirts a piece of grapefruit pulp into George’s eye, leading to chaos in George’s life. The gang discovers that Elaine’s “head-to-toe” visit at James’ cost Mr. Morgan his job, and got George an unwanted promotion.

Elaine’s Apartment
Elaine meets her wake-up guy, James, over the phone, and makes a date in-person.

George inadvertently gets Mr. Morgan in trouble, and eventually fired, due to the “wink.” George inadvertently has Kramer get a card for Mr. Steinbrenner framed before Mr. Morgan can sign, again due to the “wink.” George also inadvertently gets Mr. Morgan in trouble with his wife, again thanks to the “wink.” Kramer later begs Paul O’Neill to hit two home runs for Bobby in the Yankees locker room.
