About this Seinfeld episodes:
Seinfeld – “The Boyfriend” (part 1) is the 17th episode of season 3 and number 34 overall the series.
Jerry meets his idol, former New York Mets baseball player Keith Hernandez (appearing as himself) and wants to make a good impression. Meanwhile, George is out of time on his unemployment and he works harder than ever on his scheme to get a 13-week extension. He tells the unemployment office he was close to a job with Vandelay Industries, a company that makes latex products and whose main office is Jerry’s apartment. The plan backfires when Kramer, unaware of George’s scheme, answers Jerry’s phone. Kramer and Newman accuse Hernandez of spitting on them during a Mets game at Shea Stadium; however, Jerry supports the “second-spitter theory” that Hernandez was not involved. Keith asks Jerry about Elaine’s status. Keith makes a date with her and breaks a date with Jerry.
Having been busted by his unemployment officer, 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 with Elaine on dates until Elaine breaks up with Keith because he smokes. When Keith asks Jerry to help him move his furniture, Jerry finally has enough and breaks up their friendship. Right then, Kramer and Newman confront Keith on the alleged “spitting incident.” Keith provides them with the truth that, in fact, he saw the real spitter, Mets relief pitcher Roger McDowell. Kramer and Newman then remember that they had taunted McDowell throughout the game and they apologize to Keith and offer to help move his furniture. George rushes in, with one last desperate attempt to win over his unemployment officer by acquiring a baseball autographed by Keith, 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.
