The New Friend
Seinfeld The New Friend is the 18th episode of the Seinfeld season 3 and the 35th overall the Seinfeld series and it was aired on February 12, 1992 together with the 1st part of the episode The Boyfriend.
In the Seinfeld episode The New Friend, having been busted by his unemployment officer after Kramer unknowingly answers Jerry’s phone (which we can see int the previous part), George tries to curb losing his benefits by taking the officer’s daughter out for a date, which goes terribly wrong for him and causes him to express to Jerry his desire to date a tall woman. Meanwhile, Jerry becomes jealous that Keith is spending more of his time dating Elaine until Elaine ends the relationship because he smokes. When Keith asks Jerry to help him move his furniture, Jerry finally has enough and ends their friendship. Right then, Kramer and Newman confront Keith on the alleged “spitting incident”. Keith provides them with the truth that, he in fact saw the real spitter, and names Phillies relief pitcher Roger McDowell. Kramer and Newman then remember they had taunted McDowell throughout the game and the pair apologize to Keith, also offering to help move his furniture. George rushes in with one last desperate attempt to win over his unemployment officer by getting Keith to meet her, but he is too late. As he mopes, a tall woman suddenly appears with George’s wallet, which he had dropped on the sidewalk outside, causing George to give a happy smile.
On June 23, 2010, Jerry Seinfeld called four innings of a Mets game at Citi Field against the Detroit Tigers on SportsNet New York, reuniting him with Hernandez, now an analyst for SNY.
During that time, he revealed that if Hernandez had turned them down they would have asked Gary Carter to take his place.
