George buys himself and Mr. Steinbrenner daily calzones, but is banned from the store after being caught emptying the tip jar (so he could refill it). George hires Newman to pick up the calzones on his route, but that plan backfires as well due to Newman’s refusal to follow the USPS creed. Kramer is eventually hired, but starts a fight with the owner after they refuse to take pennies for payment, and after they burn his jacket and shirt in their pizza oven. The store was named after a real restaurant in Hermosa Beach, CA, and filmed with a changed sign in Greenwich Village, despite supposed to having been in the Bronx. Thanks to Robert Egan for pointing that out!

PERU (map)
The cigars Todd Gack gets for Jerry from Montreal are actually a “Producto de Peru,” not from Cuba. Jerry’s reaction: “I paid 300 bucks for these! I could’ve got a house in Peru for 300 bucks!”
