George and Elaine make up George's alibi for when he meets Marisa Tomei, that George is helping Elaine with a problem with her boyfriend. George suggests the name 'Art Vandelay', and suggests that he should be an 'importer'. At Elaine's urging, George concedes that he can be an 'importer/exporter'. This discussion is very similar to one in Season 1's "The Stakeout." In that episode, trying to create an excuse for waiting in the lobby of a woman's office building, George suggests that he and Jerry are meeting their friend, Art Vandelay, an importer. In that episode it is Jerry's urging that makes George agree to that Art Vandelay should be importer/exporter.
