Jerry dates the ultra-sensitive understudy for Bette Midler in Rochelle, Rochelle: The Musical. When the Improv is scheduled to play Rochelle Rochelle in a softball game, George plows into catcher Bette Midler to score the winning run. Bette is injured because of the incident and is unable to perform in the Broadway premiere. Jerry, George, and the understudy are vilified for the incident, and Kramer goes out of his way to help Bette. Meanwhile, Elaine suspects that a local nail shop is making fun of her in Korean. She learns that George's dad Frank speaks Korean and brings him along to spy on them. Frank recalls his time in the Korean war and how he had an affair with a young Korean woman. Elaine gets kicked out of the nail shop and wanders around aimlessly, and has a chance encounter with catalog magnate J. Peterman, who hires Elaine to work for the catalog. Written by

In the Asian salon, there's a lovely piece of calligraphic art on the wall. It translates: "A flower blooms in the snow". See more
As George runs into Bette Midler and knocks her out, you can clearly see a person wearing a blue/black shirt who catches her. In the next shot though, she is lying against the fence (which was not anywhere near where she would have landed) by herself. See more
So, my dear, you think you can get to Broadway? Well, let me tell you something, Broadway has no room for people like you. Not the Broadway I know. My Broadway takes people like you and eats them up and spits them out. My Broadway's the Broadway of Merman and Martin and Fontaine, and if you think you can build yourself up by knocking other people down, well good luck!
