George is Dead

From the archives:

"Jerry this is Frank Costanza. Mr. Steinbrenner's here. George is dead. Call me back. BEEEEEP."

Source: This is from the The Caddy episode of Seinfeld.

Explanation: As always, there is a simple explanation. George gets locked out of his car, but is waiting for his new auto club membership to kick in before he seeks help. His car is in the parking lot at Yankee Stadium, where he works, and has been in the spot for several days. George Steinbrenner, the team owner, sees his car every morning when he comes in bright and early. Mr. Wilhelm, George's boss, sees the car late every night when he leaves. The two of them think George is working 18 hour days. George goes on vacation without telling his coworkers, but then remembers that there is a Chinese restaurant that leaves flyers on his windshield, so he recruits Jerry to go take them off. Jerry brings Kramer and the two of them discover a car covered with bird poop, so they take the car to the car wash. On the way back from the car wash, they see Elaine's friend Sue Ellen Mishke walking down the street with only a bra on. They are distracted and crash the car, but manage to get it back to George's parking spot in the Yankee Stadium lot. George Steinbrenner sees the car and thinks his devoted employee has been in an accident, but has still managed to fight his way into work. After a thorough search of the stadium, Steinbrenner cannot find George and proclaims him dead, at which point he pays a call to George's parents. Frank Costanza calls Jerry to tell him the bad news, but Jerry is not home, so he leaves the above message. See? Quite simple.
