Please download the latest Flash plugin
While shopping for a new crested blazer, Jerry gets out of buying one he doesn't like by claiming he wants to bring a friend to see it. But he's forced to buy the jacket anyway when Elaine takes a liking to both the jacket and Craig, the store's salesman. Meanwhile, George is less than thrilled with a new house guest, a friend of Susan's who is the Wig Master for "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. "
When Kramer accidentally leaves his apartment keys at the garage they keep their cars, George is more than happy to give him a ride to retrieve them, if only to escape the Wig Master. But used condoms and lipstick stains in his own car cause George to suspect it's been used by prostitutes working near the garage. When George tries offering one of the hookers money to respond to his inquiries, he's spotted by Susan. And though she questions her trust in him, George is unsuccessful in using it to undermine their relationship. Meanwhile, locked out of his apartment, Kramer moves in with Jerry.
Upset with Craig for asking Elaine out when he brought her to the store, Jerry suspects an ulterior motive behind his offer of a discount on an expensive dress. But Elaine is just as certain that he's just being generous, especially after she overhears him offer another friend a discount, too. However, when the dress he promised isn't forthcoming, she learns Craig was lying all along. Finally, Kramer is arrested after being mistaken for a pimp while wearing one of the "Dreamcoat" costumes, forcing the show to close.
In this episode, we learn that Bob Saccamanno stayed with Kramer for a year and a half.
Kramer's mug shot number is NYPD 331781-0404.
Larry David voices the cop who orders Kramer to turn to his right while having his mug shot photo taken in the final scene in "The Wig Master."
Though not acknowledged as such in the episode, the Jiffy Park Guy played by Chaim Jeraffi was the pimp for the parking lot hookers.
"The guy's workin ya."
"Ah, Jerry, I've been around long enough to know when I'm being worked."
"Have you slept with him yet?"
"I just met him this morning."
"It's been known to happen. I'm telling you right now, Elaine, this guy's gonna dangle that dress in front of you like a dirt farmer dangles a carrot in front of a mule."
"Well, this is all very flattering."
