Plot Summary:

George picks up the habit of swearing from some visiting Houston Astros representatives, specifically "bastard" and "son of a bitch". During the time of the New York City Marathon, Elaine has a Trinidadian & Tobogan runner named Jean-Paul Jean-Paul as her house guest. Jean-Paul had overslept and missed the big race at the last Olympic Games, and Jerry obsesses with ensuring that it doesn't happen again. Jean-Paul hears George swearing, and he thinks that's how all Americans talk. He notices that Elaine has difficulty setting clocks. He calls a baby in Elaine's building a bastard, and the baby turns out to actually be illegitimate. Jean-Paul calls Elaine's superintendent a son of a bitch, and he throws Jean-Paul out of the building. Jean-paul agrees to stay with Jerry Seinfeld, who gets him a hotel room. Jerry fears that he will offend the wake-up call guy, and he brings Jean-Paul to his apartment. Cosmo Kramer installs a hot tub in his apartment. The hot tub heater breaks while Kramer is asleep in it, causing the temperature to plummet. To fix it, Kramer gets an industrial strength heater, which shorts out the electricity in the building, shutting off the alarm clocks and causing Jean-Paul and Jerry to oversleep. Jean-Paul manages to get into the race but is burned when he grabs Kramer's cup of hot tea (which he mistakes for a cup of water) at the finish line. This was not intentional, Kramer was struggling to reheat his core temperature and Jean-Paul took his hot tea by mistake.
