The Real Investigator
George and Kramer take a long car ride together. Kramer tries to educate George on some very important topics — the nature of time, the finality of death, allowing one’s own crucifixion — but it doesn’t seem to resonate. Trying to break the awkward tension, George rapidly changes topics: “So, uh, I heard this car used to be owned by Jon Voight!”
Elaine is in several scenes, but seems to only exist as a means to show just how degenerate and despicable George can be.
Seventeen years later, in a moment of high tension, Kramer throws up his hands and says, “Thanks for the beer.” Before leaving, he gathers all the cans in a bag, planning on taking them to Michigan for the ten-cent deposit.
