Plot Summary:

George and Susan go shopping for wedding invitations and George decides to buy a cheap brand. Meanwhile, Kramer tells Jerry that the bank will offer anyone $100 if they are not greeted with a "hello" by a teller when they enter the building. Jerry and Elaine realize that once George gets married it will be just the three of them, however Elaine reveals that she plans to leave the group, leaving just Jerry and Kramer. Elaine suggests that George try to smoke, but George says that Susan strongly disliked cigarettes. At night while imagining that he and Kramer were arguing about stupid things, Jerry is saved by Janeane Steinman (Janeane Garofalo).

Meanwhile, George says to Susan that Elaine wants to be a part of the wedding apart from being in the audience, but Susan will not allow a female usher in the wedding despite previously referring to it in The Pool Guy. She also says that Kramer was not an usher anymore because he had called her "Lily" when he bumped into them on the street. George tries the cigarettes, but it doesn't work because it makes him sick and fails to convince Susan. Then Jerry and Janeane go to the coffee shop for a date. The next day, George tells Elaine and Kramer about the past night and Jerry says he met Janeane. Kramer suggests George ask Susan for a pre-nup, but when George tries this, Susan laughs off because she earns a lot more money than George.

Kramer goes to the bank and upon being greeted with the word "hey" instead of "hello," he asks to see the manager (Stephen Root). Meanwhile, George and Susan receive a box of letters. After George leaves the house, Susan starts to lick the letters and finds that they have a funny taste. She continues licking them, until she finally passes out (off-screen). After George comes home but and finds her collapsed on the couch, he and his friends meet up at the hospital to wait for Susan. The doctor tells George that Susan is dead and the rest of the group offers their condolences in their own ways. George then tells his parents that he is no longer engaged. Ultimately, George immediately returns to dating, and we are left with him being hung up on after trying to get a date with actress Marisa Tomei right after the funeral.
