"The Pilot, Part 1" - Season 4 Episode 23 of Seinfeld Premiers

"The Pilot" is the two-part season finale episode from fourth season of Seinfeld.

It is the sixty-third and sixty-fourth episode and aired on May 20, 1993.

This two-part episode aired at an earlier time. 8:00 P.M, to make room for the two-hour finale of Cheers, whose timeslot would be claimed by Seinfeld at the start of the new fall season. Approximately 32 million watched this episode (both parts) when it initially aired, and the show became a major ratings grab for its next five seasons.

Plot Summary:

Jerry and George get the green light to produce Jerry, the pilot for the series based on their "nothing" lives. Russell Dalrymple, the president at NBC behind the pilot, is obsessed with Elaine. George is obsessed with a potentially cancerous white spot on his lip and a box of raisins taken by an actor playing Kramer. The real Kramer has intestinal problems and, on his way to find a bathroom, he gets delayed by being mugged and "misses his chance" to resolve the problem. Jerry has an audition with the new "Elaine", a method actress interested in being Elaine in every way. The real Elaine has a problem with Monk's coffee shop, as they appear to be only hiring buxom waitresses, so she tries to get hired and files a report.
