He tells her not to go over 10,000 dollars, but once Sue Ellen keeps bidding higher than Elaine, Elaine goes over the amount. Once she wins the clubs, she leaves them in Jerry's car. This turns out to be a problem when Jerry takes his car to a fanatical mechanic who takes the car, and the clubs, because Jerry has been mistreating the car.
