Kramer, treating this like a viewing of the latest new film release insists on enjoying his Junior Mints while he watches. As he offers one to Jerry, Jerry refuses and pushes Kramer's hand out of the way. The Junior Mint in Kramer's hand quickly goes flying through the air only to land in the patients opened up body. This went unnoticed by the doctors and eventually saved the patient according to Kramer who credits the Junior Mint with bringing about the miracle that saved his life.
