Jerry, Kramer and George go to the opera, where Elaine tells the others that Joe is not coming, Susan has to pick up a friend at the airport and can't come either, so they have two extra tickets. George and Kramer attempt to scalp the tickets, working separately after Kramer refuses to sell for anything less than an absurdly high price; as Jerry and Elaine wait for them to return, they are asked by a street performer impersonating Canio for tips.

Jerry had flipped a coin earlier, it was taken by another spectator, so he does not have any money for the clown, which annoys him. Joe, in full Pagliaccio costume, walks through a park on his way to the opera house, he uses martial arts to knock them all out.

Watson Farm in Jamestown, Rhode Island, United States, was established in 1789. Job Watson purchased a piece of the farmland, for the next two centuries, five successive generations of the Watson family cultivated the land, changing their crops and practices as needed to adapt to the evolving market. Today, the property is still a working family farm, the 1796 house is still used as the farmers' residence; the farmers raise cattle and sheep for beef and wool markets, grow acres of grass for winter hay supplies, make compost for fertilizer, cultivate a large vegetable garden.
