With Jerry shocked to find that the pecans he's been eating off Shelly's plate have already been in her mouth, George is stunned by Paula's doodle -- an unflattering caricature of him. Knowing they take a drawing class together, George turns to Elaine and finds out that Paula likes him, regardless of his looks. Meanwhile, when she's called for a big job interview, Elaine is offered use of the company's luxury suite at the Plaza Hotel after claiming she's from out of town and using Jerry's parent's Florida address as her own. After discovering that it's infested with fleas, Jerry must vacate his apartment just as his mom and dad arrive to visit his grandmother, Nana. So he persuades Elaine to let them use her suite at the Plaza while he stays with Shelly. At the opulent hotel, Helen and Morty quickly take advantage of the situation and invite Uncle Leo and Nana to join them. Meanwhile, told that a package sent to her at the Seinfeld's address in Florida was a manuscript she's to read before the interview, Elaine discovers she'll have to retrieve it from Jerry's. But there, she and Jerry find Kramer has been inside the poison-filled apartment eating peaches and reading the manuscript for over an hour. And while Elaine cannot find it, when she races in to look, she does find old candy wrappers which point to Newman as the source of Jerry's fleas. While Newman breaks down and admits he infested the apartment, Jerry's family runs up a huge bill at the hotel. After giving Elaine his synopsis of the missing novel, Kramer finds that the insecticide has caused him to lose his sense of taste, while Jerry is suddenly without a place to stay after refusing to use Shelly's toothbrush. Although her recitation of Kramer's review lands her the job, the hotel bill causes the offer to be withdrawn when Elaine is blamed for the damage caused by Jerry's family. Finally, having found someone to indulge his passion for draping his body in velvet, George announces that his search for the perfect woman is over.

While on a date with car mechanic David Puddy, Elaine is surprised to find he uses a "Move" in bed which Jerry invented. Although Elaine enjoys it, Jerry insists that his mechanic stop using the Move at once.

Meanwhile, when he goes to pick up his new license plates, Kramer discovers an embarrassing mix-up.

Accused of stealing the Move, David ends his relationship with Jerry and his car, telling Elaine that he's going to come up with something all his own. After constructing a statue of Jerry out of fusilli pasta, Kramer picks up Estelle while sporting the new license plates...ones which read "Assman." As a sudden turn causes her to lurch forward, Estelle gets the wrong impression when Kramer tries to steady her and accidentally grabs her breast. Meanwhile, worried about being taken advantage of by a new mechanic, Jerry asks Elaine to get an estimate from David, without him knowing who it's for. Though unimpressed with his wife's new eye job, Frank is furious when Estelle claims that Kramer stopped short in order to fondle her breast -- a move Mr. Costanza claims he invented years ago. Meanwhile, after he successfully uses Jerry's Move, Nancy is upset to find that George had notes written on his hand. Convinced that a new mechanic is ripping him off, Jerry then lets David have the Move back in order to get his damaged car repaired. When Frank arrives to settle his score with Kramer, the shoving match that follows ends with him falling directly on top of the fusilli sculpture. And while they are at the proctologist's office to have it removed, Kramer finally finds the owner of the license plates he has been using.
