Jerry is standing by the sink, preparing to brush his teeth.
Jenna (his latest ladyfriend) enters.
She hands him a tube of toothpaste.
Hope you don't mind baking soda flavour.
(applying paste to brush) Ah, baking
soda. Annoying little product. 'I
can do this. I can do that.' Why doesn't this stuff just shut
I'm gonna grab you a towel.
Jenna leaves the bathroom. Jerry brushes his teeth. He clearly
doesn't like the
taste of the baking soda, and leans over the sink to spit. He
puts his hand on
the counter and knocks Jenna's toothbrush off the edge. The brush
falls into the
There is a shot from beneath the water in the toilet, looking
up. Jerry's face
looking down into the bowl, with an expression of shock and horror.
Jerry looks behind him, to see if Jenna has spotted him. He rolls
up the sleeve
of his dressing gown, grimaces, and plunges his hand into the
toilet. He grabs
the brush out, drops it on a shelf beside the mirror and immediately
frantically washing his hands. As he completes this task, he
raises his head and
finds Jenna has returned. She is standing behind him, smiling
as she brushes her
teeth with the brush he just retrieved from the toilet.
Jerry and George in a booth, as per usual.
So? She used the toothbrush!
You said you grabbed it outta there
real fast, right?
So I'm sure whatever germs it landed
on were knocked out, and by the
time the rest of them realised what was going on, you had already
How many years of med school did you
Was she mad?
Jerry says nothing, but pulls a face.
You didn't tell her.
Jenna's like me. She's very... (searches
Finicky? Prissy? Fastidious?
I'll take fastidious.
George puts his keys on the table. On the ring is a miniature
head, clearly a
caricature of someone.
What is that?
Ahh, Steinbrenner gave 'em to us, in
honour of Phil Rizzuto being
inducted into the Hall of Fame.
He squeezes the miniature head.
They don't actually have to squeeze
his head to get him to say 'holy
cow', do they?
Just the last few innings of a double-header.
Kramer enters. He is carrying a battered sewing machine. He comes
Hey. Look at this. I'm in the passing
lane of the Arthur Berkhardt
expressway, going seventy and (makes impact sound - pckergh!)
Dragged this thing
for five exits.
He dumps the machine on the table and sits beside Jerry.
Why didn't you pull over?
Well I was draughting behind a semi.
I didn't wanna lose him. The
infrastructure, Jerry, it's crumbling.
George squeezes the miniature head.
Well, look at that. A talking Nixon.
(Elaine's Apartment/Chinese Restaurant)
Elaine is calling for Chinese food. The scene flicks from her
at home with the
phone and a menu, to the restaurant owner taking the order.
Yeah, I'd like to place an order.
Ah yes, what you like?
This Supreme Flounder, it says first
time served in America. Is that
Yeah, first time. What else?
Uh, that's it.
Seventy-eight, West Eighty-sixth Street.
Apartment three E.
That's southside. Sorry, we don't deliver
I'm not below.
Yes you are. Street itself is boundary.
Your guy can't cross to my side?
If we deliver to you, then what? Eighty-fifth
Street, Wall Street,
Mexico, Eighty-fourth Street.
Alright, fine. I'll just cross and meet
Sorry, food only for those who live
within boundary. (slams down phone)
Elaine listens to the dial tone for a second. Then she pushes
(picks up phone) China Panda.
(using silly voice) Uh, yeah yeah. I'd
like to place an order.
Ah, what you like?
Kramer enters. He's smoking a substantial cigar.
Well, I'm a poppa.
Bring it on. Nothing's throwing me at
(handing Jerry a cigar) Well, as of
today I am a proud parent of a
one-mile stretch of the Arthur Berkhardt Expressway.
Oh, that adopt-a-highway thing.
Yeah, I'm part of the solution now Jerry.
Yeah, I went down there and I
checked it out this morning. Here, take a look. Mile one-fourteen.
He gets his wallet from his back pocket and shows Jerry a Polaroid
Aw, looks just like you.
Aw, I'm beaming Jerry.
So what d'you have to do? Pay to keep
They try to push you into using their
cleaning crew, with all their
so-called maintenance equipment.
That old scam.
Yeah, well that's why I'm doing it all
myself. This parenting isn't
about delegating responsibility, it's about being there.
At the side of the road, with a pile
George enters looking anxious, maybe borderline panicky. He stalks
place, looking for something, frustratedly.
Keys. I can't find my keys.
You lost Phil Rizzuto's head?!
Have you seen 'em?
C'mon, retrace your steps. What d'you
I got up, I was supposed to go to work,
I came here instead.
Well, they're not here. You'll have
to dig up your spare set.
I don't have a spare set. All my keys
say 'do not duplicate'.
So you can't duplicate 'em.
At this, Jerry and Kramer exchange a look, and laugh.
Sure you can. (to Jerry) Such a sweet
Elaine stands on the sidewalk, waiting for someone. She looks
up the street and
sees a Chinese delivery boy approaching with a bag of food. She
ducks into the
entranceway to the apartment building behind her, and then effects
to be coming
out of the building as the delivery boy gets there.
Oh. Oh, hi. China Panda?
(suspicious) Why you waiting on the
street and not in your

She takes the bag of food.
You really live here?
Oh yeah. (handing over money) There
you go, keep the change. Bye now.
I'll see you.
Elaine walks back towards the door to the building. She expects
the boy to
leave, but he's still suspicious, and waits. Elaine tries the
door, but it's
locked. She looks, and the boy still waits. Elaine tries the
door harder, but it
won't yield. She admits defeat and hands the food back, and receives
The delivery boy walks off.
(at the boy's back) This isn't fair.
This is address discrimination!

emerges from the
store with a carrier bag full of stuff.

like a piece of cake, you know? But then I thought, it's morning,

I figured, well,
they're really both cake. So I, uh, I sat on that bench for a
twenty minutes or an hour, and then I figured, check and see
what you were up
to. (a thought occurs to him) Wait a minute, wait a minute. The
broad jump! The
broad jump over the pothole on Eighty-sixth Street!
George dashes off excitedly. Jerry follows, with somewhat less

Poor son of a bitch.
Jenna is at the sink in her bathroom, using an electric toothbrush
has bought her. It's loud.
It's a hundred thousand revolutions
a second. It's the most powerful one
It's like I'm holding a blender.
The engine's made by McDonnell-Douglas.
Jerry begins to wander into the living room. Jenna switches off
Oh no, you keep going. It shuts off
(restarting and reapplying the brush)
Really, it does?
(unheard by Jenna) When the battery
(shouting to Jerry) I was really happy
with my old toothbrush.
In the living room, Jerry is carefully putting the old brush
into a plastic bag,
being very careful not to touch it with his bare skin. He then
seals the bag.
No, trust me, that one was doing more
harm than good. Don't forget to use
the Plax too.
Jenna takes a sip from a glass as if to gargle.
That stuff tastes like bleach!
Jerry is looking for a place to put the soiled brush.
I don't know anything about that.
Just before Jenna emerges from the bathroom, Jerry throws the
bag with the brush
out of the window.
Mmm. My mouth feels so clean.
That's the idea.
Jenna approaches Jerry, clearly intending to kiss him. As Jenna
him, Jerry gets a flashback of the toothbrush plunging into the
toilet bowl, in
black and white, with portentous music. From his viewpoint, we
see Jenna's lips
looming toward him. He looks nauseated by the prospect of the
kiss, and pulls
You know, maybe we better not. I, I
think I'm getting a little cold. I
don't wanna give you any of my germs.
Aww. Okay. Thanks, I guess.
Jerry driving with Elaine in the passenger seat.
You still couldn't kiss her?
She has a taint. I can't see it, but
I know it's there.
Oh, so now you're finding fault on a
Maybe if I could shrink myself down,
like in Fantastic Voyage, and get
inside a microscopic submarine, I could be sure. Although if
there was something
there, it might be pretty scary. Course, I would have that laser.
Jer, do you see where this is going?
Being really clean and happy?
Jerry, you have tendencies. They're
always annoying, but they were just
tendencies. But now, if you can't kiss this girl, I'm afraid
And from disorder, you're a quirk or
two away from full-on dementia.

We see Jerry and Elaine's view of the road signs. 'Mile 114'
and 'Litter removal next 1 Mile KRAMER'.
Shall we stop and say hi?
Nah, we've seen it.
Kramer is standing on the verge beside a large pile of plastic
bags full of
trash, a couple of brooms lean against the crash barrier. He
has an armful of
assorted garbage. Jerry's car passes in the traffic, and a brief
beep of the
horn is heard.
(shouting after car) Hey Jerry! Yeah,
I'll see you back at the house!
He drops the last handful of trash into a bag.
Mile one-fourteen, clean as a whistle.
He claps his hands in satisfaction, and looks out at 'his' road.

His progress to the can is accompanied by the squeal of brakes
and the blare of
horns as the traffic passes him. As he reaches the can, one car
has to come to a
complete stop. Kramer grabs the can and hurries back to the side
of the road,
where he leans on the barrier.
Elaine is in the hallway of a building, outside Apartment 1A.
She knocks at the
door and a guy opens it.
Hi. I'm your neighbour, uh, fr... from
across the street. And uh,
(coughs nervously) I was wondering, if it wouldn't be too much
trouble, if I
could use your apartment to order some food?
Wha? What d'you want?
You see, there's this certain flounder
and they won't deliver it to my
side of the street.
Wh, when is that?
No, I just need them to deliver it here
and I have to be kinda inside is
Who are you with?
No, actually I'm... I'm just kind of
Who let you in?
Well, the lock was broken. You just
have to jiggle it, actually. But, I
just need like a half an hour to an hour.
The man shuts the door in her face.
Elaine turns to leave, and as she does she sees an unmarked door
stands open. She crosses over for a closer look. It's clearly
closet, with the usual fixings. A thought occurs to Elaine, and
a smile comes to
Jerry has just entered and is removing his coat. Kramer is in
cleaning highway signs in the sink.
What's with the signs?
Hey, you should see the Berkhardt, Jerry.
My mile is spotless. I mean

Yeah, that stuff's all natural anyway.

with the spray

Hey. So, keys?
No keys. And I been calling the city
all day. Course there's not really
a number to call if you wanna make a pothole.
I guess they leave that up to the general

The buzzer buzzes.
Jerry buzzes Jenna in, opens the door and indicates to George
and Kramer that
their presence is no longer required.
If you guys wouldn't mind, I would like
to ward off dementia.
George and Kramer leave, still discussing the maintenance guys.
You think you could hook me up with
Oh yeah, yeah. Give me a ring tomorrow.
I'm gonna be at emergency
How you feeling?
Good. My cold's gone, and I've been
looking forwards to kissing you,
which I'm ready to do now, if you are ready.
Jenna moves in for the kiss. As she leans towards Jerry, he gets

Nothing. I just, I uh, I bruised my
lip. I was drinking a Celray, and I
brought it up too fast and I banged it into my lip, (lower voice
and then I knocked your toothbrush into the toilet and I wasn't
able to tell you
before you could use it.
When were you gonna tell me this?!
The door opens and Kramer enters.
I need the yield sign.
Kramer goes and begins to gather the signs from the kitchen.
Kramer, I'm kind of in the middle of
something. Would you get these signs
out of here, please?
Kramer brings his signs from the kitchen and Jerry picks up those
which were on
his table. Together they carry them across the hall to Kramer's
You could've introduced me.
I wouldn't know where to start.
As Jerry is about to return to his apartment, the door is slammed
shut. He tries
to open it, but it has been locked.
(knocking) Hey, Jenna. Hey!
Jenna opens the door, she has her jacket in her hand and is ready
There. Now something of yours has been
in the toilet.
What?! Wha... what'd you put in there?
Jenna departs, leaving Jerry looking around him. He's wide-eyed,
Jerry is on the phone. His table is covered with bottles of cleaning
disinfectants, etc.. He is wearing a rubber glove to hold a spatula.
eating an apple and watching him.
(into phone) Hello, Jenna, did you dunk
the spatula? Was it the spatula?
Frustrated, he throws the spatula into the waste bin.
She won't even give you a hint?
No. Could be anything. The whole apartment's
You know what I bet it is? (points)
Yes, that is a definite possibility.
He picks up the remote control and drops it into a waste bin.
(walking to the couch) Or, could be
your walkman there.
Jerry picks up the walkman and begins to deposit it in the trash,
then a thought
occurs to him. Elaine sits on the couch and picks up the phone.
Are you just screwing with me?
Yeah, I am.
Jerry thinks for a second, then he throws the walkman in the
Kramer enters carrying a box.
Hey, how's life on the road?
Oh, I'm making a difference Jerry.
I don't doubt it.
Kramer puts his box on the kitchen counter.
You should see the smiles on the drivers'
faces. I mean, you gotta look
quick, but they're there.
From the box, Kramer picks up square orange reflective objects.
Well, you know, those annoying little
bumps on the lane-lines? (makes
noise - bum, bum, bum, bum, bump)
Isn't that some kind of safety thing?
Well, I had to pull 'em up if I'm gonna
widen the lanes.
What the hell are you talking about?
Ah, you know how in planes they got
first class? More leg room, better
ride? Well, I'm bringing that concept to mile one-fourteen.
Elaine has the receiver from the phone held to her ear.
How are you gonna widen the lanes?
Well you black out lane-lines one and
three, and a four-lane highway
becomes a two-lane comfort cruise. (to Jerry) So, you got any
(sarcasm) Yeah, in my toolshed, next
to the riding mower.
(into phone) Yuh, I'd like an order

One-Q? Whose apartment is that?
That's the janitor closet, across the
You're pretending to live in a janitor's
closet, just to get this
It's better than eating it alone in
the restaurant, like some loser.
Kramer is applying something from Jerry's table of cleaning fluids,
etc, to his
neck, like a cologne.
That stuff is unbelievable. I'd eat
it out of a dumpster.
(heading to door) How do you know about
it? You're not in the delivery
Well, Newman uses his mail truck to
run fish for China Panda on the
Well, mine's coming in ten, so... see
Now, where's that tool shed of yours?
The delivery boy from China Panda in the hallway. He knocks at
the door to the
janitor's closet. He looks at the label on the door, which is
a piece of tape
with '1Q' crudely written in magic marker. He waits for a couple
of seconds then
knocks again. Elaine opens the door, with a towel wrapped around
her head, as if
her hair is wet.
Hi. Sorry, I didn't hear you. I was
in the shower.
She takes the bag with her order and hands over some money. The
delivery boy is
trying to see past her into the 'apartment'.
I'll see you.
She shuts the door, leaving the delivery boy looking a tad bemused.
George stands by the filled pothole. A highway maintenance truck
is parked next
to it. A trio of workers approach George, and the senior man
Yeah. Thanks for, thanks for coming
by fellas. Eh, got a set of keys,
buried in the pothole.
What're the keys doing in there?
Just need to uh, to dig 'em up.
You put 'em in there?
Nah, nah, it's uh, it's a long story.
Just uh, try to get it up.
Bad place to put your keys.
Yeah, I know that. (clears throat) Could
you start, working?
Difficult job. You want those keys,
we're gonna have to dig this up.
(penny drops) Oh, uh, wait a minute,
wait a minute. (snorts) Is this
Yeah. (snorts) It's about money.
Kramer is driving his car slowly along the Expressway. On either
side of his
boot is balanced an orange road cone. The traffic is passing
him, and the blare
of horns is regularly heard.
Kramer opens the driver side door. He picks up a paint roller,
and loads it with
black paint from a tray on the passenger seat. Then he leans
out of the door and
rolls the paint over the lane markers, still steering the car
with his other
Elaine emerges from the janitor's closet. She's wiping her lips,
flounder repast. As she does so, a woman walking along the hall
'Scuse me, what are you doing in there?
Uhm, nothing. I was just uhm... I wasn't
You were hanging around in there, lazing
on the job. When you

Right, because... I'm the janitor. (picks
teeth with fingernail)
Don't get smart with me.
(meek) Yes ma'am.
Kramer is in bed. His alarm goes off, and the radio comes on
in the middle of
the traffic report. Kramer wakes up and listens.
Hey, and if you're heading north on
the Arthur Berkhardt, whoah Nelly,
for some reason four lanes are converging into two, instantaneously
mile-marker one-fourteen. I don't know what that is, but the
A-B's a parking lot
out there. Somebody screwed up on that one.
By the end of the report, Kramer looks slightly worried.
Elaine stands waiting in the closet. There's the usual paraphernalia
brooms, cleaning materials, stepladder, boxes, etc.. There's
a knock at the
door. Elaine opens it to find Jerry.
Oh it's you.
Is the flounder here yet?
No, it's not here yet. You want the
Jerry enters, and Elaine closes the door.
(gesturing) There's this.
Nice. French doors'd really open this
place up. Oh, but you have a
There's another knock at the door.
(gleeful) The fish!
She opens the door to find George. He's wearing a tartan workshirt.
Ah, what're you doing here?
George joins Jerry and Elaine in the closet. It's getting a bit
Oh, I was uh, I was waiting downstairs
for the jackhammer, thought I'd
Yeah. I got 'em down to fifty bucks.
I just have to do all the
Oh that's nice, kind of a hard-labour
The door is pushed open from the outside. It thumps into George
who is pushed
into Elaine, who stumbles into Jerry.
Kramer enters the now crowded closet.
Huh, yeah. (looks round) Oh, sweet setup.
Elaine, d'you have any paint
thinner? I need like uh, forty gallons.
I'm plumb out.
Oh man, if I don't get that black paint
off the City's gonna go ape. I
don't wanna lose my baby!
There's yet another knock at the door. More strident.
(to the guys) Uh, Mrs Allister. (louder)
Yeah, uh, just coming Mrs
Allister. (to guys) Okay, I've gotta get out.
Elaine struggle to squeeze past George, and then Kramer to reach
the door. The
she has to make room to swing the door inwards.
Here, can you move, you gotta move from
She succeeds in squeezing out, and stumbles into the hallway.
The crush behind
her slams the door shut.
Hi, I uhm... What can I do for you?
I told you yesterday to haul that trash
outta the basement.
Yeah, I am so sorry.
Some of the children have been playing
near it and putting it in
Well, a lot of it is vegetable...
In the closet, the guys are struggling together with equipment
and supplies in
the cramped space. The thumps of their movements can be heard
in the hallway.
Get that stuff outta there today, or
you'll be outta here.
(meekly) Yes ma'am.
The janitor's closet door opens and the guys stumble out.
...stop pushing. (to Elaine) Kramer
I don't feel like eating.
(holding up a set of heavy chains) I'm
gonna borrow this, huh?
(to Mrs Allister) Janitor's meeting.
Jenna enters and sits, Jerry closes the door behind her. It is
clear that Jerry
has gone overboard in his efforts to dispose of whatever was
contaminated - his
kitchen shelves are bare, and most other surfaces are free of
So Jerry, why'd you call me?
Well, I thought it's about time we put
aside all this silliness. I know
now you didn't put anything in my toilet bowl. (pause) Did you?
Yes, I did.
Well, whatever. So, how've you been?
Good. (pause) Steak knife?
Just eating away at you isn't it?
The door opens and Elaine enters.
Hi. Jerry, can I borrow your car?
I have to haul some dirty garbage to
Dirt? That's alright, (for Jenna's benefit)
because there's nothing wrong
Well, actually it's pretty grimy.
Grime, grease, filth, funk, ooze. Whatever
it is, you take that stuff and
put it right on my leather upholstery.
He hands the keys to Elaine.
Well, I don't know who you are, but
thanks for the car.
There, you see? I just leant her my
car, and she's gonna fill it with all
sorts of... (he cracks) Alright! You win! That car was my last
sanctuary. I slept there last night! Now, for the love of God,
please, what is
it? What is it?!
Toilet brush, oh (he pulls a 'Damn,
shoulda guessed!' face). Alright, I
can replace that.
You wanna order dinner?
Yeah. Let's uh, go to your place. Because
I, threw out all my dishes.
Elaine strides along the sidewalk looking very blue-collar in
overalls and cap,
grimy face, etc. She has some old carpet slung over one shoulder
and some paint
cans in her hand. A jackhammer can be heard. As she walks along,
George who is holding the jackhammer. She nods acknowledgment
and he touches the
peak of his hardhat. George gives the pothole a burst from the

his car. He
eventually heaves it in.
Jerry and Jenna, sitting on the couch, eating and conversing
(looks like Chinese
But, I'll tell you this much. I am never
going to let some silly hygienic
mishap get in the way of, what could be, a meaningful, long-lasting
George is giving the street a long burst from the jackhammer.
Suddenly, there is
a clang. George stops hammering, and listens. There is a deep
from beneath his feet, which seems to be getting louder. He looks
around for the
source of the noise.
Jenna and Jerry are still eating on the couch. The rumbling noise
can be heard,
though not so loud as outside. Then, in the bathroom, the toilet
Do you hear something?
They both listen intently. The rumble continues and, in the bathroom,
rattles again, the cistern shaking.
I don't know what that could be.
Jenna gets up and goes to the bathroom door.
There is a rending sound, and a huge jet of water erupts from
the ground right
in front of George, where he was hammering. There is a shot from
rising column of water. On the top rises George's keyring.
The plume of water rises high above George, who can be seen looking
up at the
height of it.
In the bathroom, Jenna is peering curiously at her rattling toilet,
what's wrong. She leans toward the bowl. Jerry is in the living
talking to her.
Anyway, I'm a new man, and I'm looking
towards the future. Clean, dirty,
There is the sound of a wet explosion and splashing water, followed
screaming in the bathroom. Jerry leaps to his feet and rushes
to see what has
Jerry enters the bathroom and sees Jenna. Only her forearm is
visible to us, but
it's enough for us to know that she is wringing wet as the result
of a violent
eruption from the toilet bowl.
Jerry's face registers his obvious distaste. He shrugs, sorry.
Holy cow! Have a nice life.
He closes the bathroom door as he leaves.
Elaine driving. The passenger seats are piled with the garbage
from the basement
- old carpets, bits of timber, boxes, etc. An external shot of
the car reveals
she is driving on Kramer's section of road, as the black-painted
can be seen.
Hey, look at this. Wide lanes. This
is so luxurious. Woo, yeah.
We see the Saab weave across the extra wide lanes. From the boot
battered sewing machine. It sits in the middle of the carriageway.
(Arthur Berkhardt Expressway)
Kramer is manhandling the forty gallon drum out of his boot.
He struggles to
heave it clear, and then he drops it. The drum falls onto its
side, and the lid
comes off, spilling the contents across the road.
Newman is singing as he drives. Beside him are a stack of boxes,

There's a loud crash as the truck runs over the sewing machine.
Tyres squeal as
Newman regains control.
What the hell was that?
The truck is travelling along with the sewing machine caught
on the front axle.
As it scrapes along the road, it leaves a huge trail of sparks
(Arthur Berkhardt Expressway)
Kramer rights the empty drum and does a double-take as he notices
labels on the side - 'Paint Thinner' 'Highly Flammable'.
Newman still singing, although the grinding sound of the sewing
almost drowning out his voice. The sewing machine is still producing
a shower of
sparks under the truck.
(sings) Yes, you're once. Twice. Three
Suddenly, the truck clearly reaches the pool of thinner and the

Aaah! Aaagh! Aah-aah. Oh, oh the humanity!
(Arthur Berkhardt Expressway)
Kramer finally manages to get the drum back into his boot and
slams the lid
down. Then he sees Newman staggering along the road. Newman is
and is singed all over, with blackened patches on his hair and
staring ahead, clearly in such a state of shock that he's uncomprehending
Hey buddy. What're you doing out here?
Newman continues to walk, oblivious of Kramer.
Man, did you see that fireball? Woo-hoo-hoo,
Newman still doesn't respond. In the distance the sound of sirens
can be heard.
Kramer hears them, looks worried, and moves toward the car.
Hey, I gotta skedaddle. You wanna lift?
Kramer has the driver's door open and is impatient to be off.
Kramer gets in the car and leans out of the window to call to
Well, I'll meet you at the coffee shop.
He starts the car, and leaves with a squeal of protesting tyres.

As the Castle Rock logo comes up, Newman can be heard screaming
