Jerry has a box of stuff his grandfather left him. Inside is an interesting looking statue that could replace one Georges parents had years ago, but he broke. George plans to pick the statue up later but in the meantime he tells his parents about the replacement statue. Meanwhile the boyfriend of a bitter Finnish author (whose latest work Elaine is going to edit) is going to clean Jerrys apartment. When Jerry returns to his apartment it is cleaned beyond reason. Later when Jerry and Elaine are at the authors apartment, they see the statue on her mantelpiece. Getting it back may jeopardize Elaines chance at being an editor, but save George from his parents wrath.
