The Dealership

When Elaine's on again/off again boyfriend David Puddy gives up being a mechanic to sell cars, Jerry goes to see him about buying a new Saab. While Jerry is certain of getting the best possible deal, George recalls his own family's disastrous history with buying new cars and warns against relying on anything David says. Meanwhile, as George struggles to get a candy bar that's stuck inside the car dealership's stubborn vending machine, Kramer persuades a salesman named Rick to give him a test drive.

After Elaine complains about David's persistent use of the "high five" handshake, they break up again and leave Jerry with little hope of getting the deal he was promised. To make matters worse, George is convinced that the dealership has it out for him after the vending machine gives the candy bar he bought to one of the mechanics. Meanwhile, after using the test drive to run his errands, Kramer convinces Rick to see just how far they can go on a tank of gas.

When Jerry begs her to make up with David so he can get a good deal, Elaine extracts some concessions before she'll agree. Faced with David's reluctance to make up, Jerry must find a compromise that will allow for the resumption of the relationship. Meanwhile, once George assembles his case for the candy bar, he's undercut when both staff and customers help themselves to his carefully prepared evidence. Finally, as Kramer and Rick press the car's gas tank to the limit, Jerry finds common ground to reunite David and Elaine... until his refusal to acknowledge a high five ruins the deal.
