Storyline

Jerry gets a date with a woman, Donna Chang, who due to a technical fault with the telephone lines is getting all of George's calls. He thinks she's Chinese but soon realizes that's not the case. Elaine and Jerry see George's father talking to a strange looking man wearing a cape but it's Donna who gets the scoop when she speaks to George's mother. Elaine is having trouble talking to her friend Noreen because Noreen's friend Paul won't stop chatting when she calls so she's taken to just hanging up, something that has a effect on Elaine and Paul's relationship. Kramer meanwhile is worried about his fertility, wondering if he's the last of the Kramer line. He goes to a clinic but is unnerved when the doctor tells him to stop wearing jockey shorts.

Crazy Credits

The character "Man" listed in the credits as Jack Tracy refers to the man smoking in the Chinese restaurant who has one small line - "You mind?" The man in the cape is indeed Larry David, however none of his parts in Seinfeld (various voices, man in cape, newsstand cashier, Steinbrenner, etc.) are ever credited to him or anyone else.

"I don't trust men in capes"

Season 6, Episode 4, "The Chinese Woman"

Season 6 was finally hitting its stride with "The Chinese Woman" which remains one of the season's strongest episodes. Kramer is more hilarious than he's been in a long time, and he has some of his finest moments here. More importantly - The Costanzas make their first appearance in season 6, and they're both brilliant - as is Larry David in his most memorable cameo of the show's run.

The season 6 scripts weren't as tight and precise as the ones in seasons 4 and 5, but this is one of the episodes in which the new writing found its footing and the new season found its voice.
