|Episode no.||Season 7

|Original air date||January 25, 1996|
Kramer befriends a caddy, Stan, who helps him improve his golf game and offers him other advice. George leaves his car at work, and Mr. Wilhelm and George Steinbrenner think he's been working extra hard. Elaine encounters Sue Ellen Mischke (played by Brenda Strong), an old high school friend-turned-nemesis who is now an heiress to the Oh Henry! candy bar fortune and a "braless wonder". After Elaine gives Sue Ellen a bra as a gift, Sue Ellen starts wearing it only without a top.
Having to take George's car to a car wash since it was covered by bird droppings, which would indicate that George is not working, Kramer and Jerry get into an accident when they are both distracted by bra-clad Sue Ellen; Jerry still manages to return the destroyed car. Finding the car in this state, with blood from the accident, all of George's coworkers think that George got into a bad accident. Mr. Wilhelm tells Steinbrenner, and they begin an immediate search for George. When they can't find him, Steinbrenner declares him dead. He then goes to George's parents and tells them the news, which makes them distraught. Jerry gets a call from them and he immediately gets a call from George; he tells him what happened to the car. George decides to do something about situation, but not tell his parents that he is alive ("They could use a break"). When George later returns to work, with fake injuries, he finds out he didn't get the position of assistant manager, which he was trying to achieve since he left his car in the parking lot.
Kramer, under Elaine's advice, takes Sue Ellen to court for damages after the accident with Jackie Chiles representing them both, and only Jerry may stand in the way, for he earlier took a fancy at Sue Ellen following the accident. At the trial, he nevertheless admits (albeit reluctantly) that it was indeed Sue Ellen the cause of the accident. Just as the trial is about to end, with Kramer and Elaine as apparent victors, Stan tells Kramer to get Sue Ellen to try on the bra. Chiles refuses this idea, but Kramer insists that he (Chiles) ask the judge for her to wear the bra to see if it fits. She tries, but the bra doesn't fit, thus costing Kramer and Elaine the trial and greatly upsetting Chiles', who insists (and compares) that it was futile for Sue Ellen to wear a bra over her clothes ("A bra's gotta fit right up against a person's skin, like a glove!")
Following the trial, Elaine's female coworkers are starting to wear their bras with no tops, making Elaine all the more miserable.
