Jerry takes his mother's fur coat and his jacket to be dry cleaned. Jerry, Elaine and Kramer go to the movies. Kramer meets Uma Thurman and writes her phone number on Jerry's dry cleaning ticket. Jerry spots Willie, the dry cleaner, wearing his jacket. He confronts Willie about this and demands his clothes back. Because Willie's wife Donna is out with the fur coat, he demands Jerry show him the ticket, which Kramer still has.
George is authorized to hire a secretary; he passes over attractive women so he can concentrate on his work, and hires Ada, a very efficient and plain-looking secretary. However, he becomes smitten with her efficiency and has sex with her at work. During sex, George screams, "I'm giving you a raise!" George talks George Steinbrenner into giving Ada the raise he promised. He is upset when he learns the raise was so much that her salary is greater than his. He tries to talk Steinbrenner into giving him a raise as well, but walks out when Steinbrenner goes off on a tangent.
Elaine buys a dress at Barneys because it looked great in there, but later it looks awful. She realizes they are using mirrors which make people look thinner. Kramer is in need of moisturizer, so she brings him along when she goes to return the dress. Kramer buys the moisturizer. Elaine tries on another dress, then goes outside the store looking for an unbiased mirror. At Barneys Kenny Bania is looking for a new suit; instead, he purchases Kramer's vintage suit for $300. Kramer is left in his underwear in the women's dressing room. Jerry arrives and asks Kramer for the ticket; however, it was left in Kramer's trousers which are now in Bania's possession. Bania wants his money back because the suit was stained by the moisturizer. Kramer refuses to trade back, so Jerry agrees to pay Bania two meals in exchange for the ticket. However, both the dry cleaning number and Uma Thurman's phone number are washed out. Jerry spots Donna wearing his mother's fur coat, and wrestles it away from her. He lets Kramer wear the coat over his underwear to leave the store. Elaine is forced to buy the dress because the clerk notices road salt on it and realizes she wore it outside the store.
Jerry and Bania have a meal at Mendy's restaurant again. Bania orders soup, then tells Jerry that he wrote down the telephone number from the ticket before it was washed out and got a date with Uma.
