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.
Did You Know?
When Elaine is talking to Mr. Costanza in the coffee shop, he mentions the name "Sun Yung Moon." The person referred to is "Sun Myung Moon." This is possibly a deliberate error consistent with the character. (Although it's also possible that "Yung" is the correct pronunciation, it isn't likely, because the written Korean language is ideographic, not phonetic, so silent consonants probably wouldn't occur in English transliterations.)
