"The Handicap Spot" - Season 4 Episode 22 of Seinfeld Premiers

"The Handicap Spot" is the 22nd episode of the fourth season and the 62nd overall episode of Seinfeld.

It aired on May 13, 1993.

Plot Summary:

The group travels to buy an engagement gift for their friend "the Drake", a big-screen television. George parks his father's car in a handicapped parking space, since they figured they will only be a few minutes. However, they are mistaken and are in the store for much longer, and in the time that they were gone, an angry mob trashes the vehicle when a disabled woman gets injured because of the illegal parking.

While George is contemplating the punishment that he will get for the vehicle's damage, the rest decide not to go to The Drake's engagement party. While visiting Lola, the injured handicapped woman at the hospital, Kramer falls in love and feels compelled to replace her wheelchair. George and Kramer go on to buy a used wheelchair which is much cheaper than a brand-new one. Jerry and Elaine go to have lunch with The Drake after missing his party and discover that he and his fiancée have broken off their engagement.

George's father Frank Costanza receives an award for outstanding service in helping the handicapped. In the middle of receiving the award, he is arrested for George's parking in the handicap spot, as Frank is the registered owner of the vehicle. As a result of the accusation, Frank's award is taken away from him. Amusingly, George's father forces him to become his butler as punishment, which was initially an idea for the pilot episode that George is writing with Jerry.

Lola breaks up with Kramer and is later seen screaming and rolling down a hill in her wheelchair, which she can not stop due to bad brakes. George's first job as his father's butler is to retrieve the wide-screen TV at The Drake's house so that it can be donated to charity. George and Kramer retrieve the TV from the ex-fiancée's apartment, then re-unite with Jerry and Elaine to return it for a refund. In the final scene, the gang is once again looking for a parking space at the mall, and Kramer tries to talk George into parking next to a fire hydrant, using near-identical rationales as he had at the handicapped spot.
