Elaine strains her neck trying to get a bike down from the wall in an antiques store. Jerry, who'd been admiring a beautiful woman in the store, had been oblivious to Elaine's struggles. Elaine impulsively vows to give up the bike to whoever fixes her neck. Kramer claims to be skilled in shiatsu technique and relieves her aching neck. While Elaine marvels at his skill, Kramer demands the bike despite it being a girl's model. After some haranguing from Kramer, Elaine reluctantly gives it to him, but the next day, her neck pain returns worse than ever, so she demands the bike back. Kramer tells her she was supposed to sleep on a wooden plank for a week and refuses to give the bike back. They appeal to Jerry, who recuses himself because he's friends with them both but suggests they have a neutral third party, Newman, decide who should keep the bike. He declares that they should cut the bike in half, so Elaine and Kramer can both have it. Elaine scoffs at the proposal, whereas Kramer tells Newman to give the bike to Elaine, saying he would rather it belong to her than be destroyed. Elaine eagerly agrees to Kramer's decision, prompting Newman to change his opinion, stating that the bike's true owner wouldn't want to see it destroyed, leaving Elaine furious.
