The Nap

The Butter Shave
Elaine requests a cab to 86th and Broadway from the airport, but is forced to share…with both Puddy and “Vegetable Lasagna.”

The Bookstore

The Face Painter
Jerry, Kramer, Elaine and Puddy go to a Rangers vs. Devils playoff game, which the Devils win. While the Rangers did not play the Devils in the 1995 NHL Playoffs, they did have an epic 7 game series in the 1994 Playoffs, where the Devils won Game 1 4-3 in overtime on a goal by Stephane Richer (as heard on George’s radio when listening to the game). With Kramer saying that there are still three games left in the series, this implies the gang saw Game 1, and that Jerry and Kramer went again with Puddy (having to paint “DEVILS” on their chest) to Game 2.
