Jerry's new girlfriend, Nina, is an artist and while he likes her a lot he's a little concerned that she is overly possessive and jealous. It clearly bothers her that he and Elaine have remained such good friends even after they stopped dating. When Jerry obviously begins to waver, she writes him a wildly romantic letter. Only later does he realize it's a piece of dialog given by Marsha Mason in Chapter Two (1979). Sitting in the owner's box at a Yankees game, Elaine insists on wearing her Orioles cap and refuses to remove it when asked to. Written by
Did You Know?
The Elaine story was inspired by a real-life experience of Larry David
's. David asked executive producer Howard West
if he knew anyone who could get him tickets for a Yankees-Angels game at Anaheim Stadium. West knew the accountant of Angels owner Gene Autry
and was able to get David tickets to seats in Autry's box behind the dugout. David, a New York native, wore a Yankees cap to game. An Angels executive came down to the box and asked David to remove the cap because it might offend Mr. Autry. David could be seen wearing the hat on the front page of the Los Angeles Times sports section the following day. See more
