Thanks to Susan’s friend Sally’s cheapness, Jerry’s gift for Charles Grodin (a bottle of barbeque sauce) breaks in his suitcase. Jerry later finds out she is coming to New York, so arranges for her to bring a large, inconvenient gift for him. An exhausted and terrified George shows Jerry and Elaine the doll that looks exactly like Estelle.

Monk’s Café
Frank tells George that he is turning his old bedroom into a billiards parlor. George and Elaine are told the story of Frank’s long-lost cousin Carlo, who Elaine thinks she spotted while vacationing in Tuscany. George tries to have a meal with his mother’s doppelganger doll.

Elaine reveals the trip was cut short when she spilled red wine on a poster of Maestro’s favorite composer, Jose Carreras (“that other guy”) from the Three Tenors. Frank flies to Tuscany to Costanza Import & Export, where he finds a man named Giuseppe, not Carlo.
