The Pilot (part 2)
Seinfeld The Pilot (part 2) is the 24th episode of the Seinfeld season 4 and the 63rd overall the Seinfeld series and it was aired on May 20, 1993.
In the Seinfeld episode The Pilot (part 2), Rehearsals for the pilot begin. NBC executive Russell Dalrymple’s obsession with Elaine begins to affect his work; she tries to let him down easy by saying she can’t be in a relationship with a high-powered man and would prefer to be with someone selfless, such as a member of Greenpeace. Kramer resolves his constipation by administering himself an enema.
George mistakenly thinks that his white spot has been diagnosed as cancer and goes on a tirade at NBC, only to discover that he misunderstood the diagnosis. At the taping of the pilot, “Crazy” Joe Davola leaps out of the audience and onto the set while yelling “Sic semper tyrannis!” He’s removed and the taping goes well. The pilot airs and numerous characters from past episodes comment.
Also, Newman is shown to have falling asleep watching baseball.
In order to prove himself worthy of Elaine, Russell joins Greenpeace and is lost at sea during a botched assault on a whaling ship. His replacement at NBC named Rita Kearson, who disagreed with Russell on certain issues, dislikes the show and cancels it only two minutes after the episode finished and not knowing, let alone caring, about the ratings or reception. George and Jerry blame Elaine for driving Russell crazy in love and not returning his feelings; she tries to defend herself by saying it’s not her fault, but George says it is because she’s “very charming.” Elaine then demands to know where Russell is, but according to Jerry, nobody knows.
In the end, Jerry, George, Kramer, and Elaine convalesce at Monk’s, where it turns out many people have arrived due to the waitresses. Elaine spots the men from the Equal Employment Opportunity office eating there and scolds the owner of the cafe for only hiring large breasted women; the owner explains that they are all his daughters, and everything goes back to normal, with George muttering about getting a job the next day; Kramer recommends he join Greenpeace, to which George declines due to the risks.
