In the Seinfeld episode The Chinese Woman, Jerry and Elaine see George‘s father, Frank Costanza, with a man in a cape, but don’t say hello. Jerry talks to a woman, Donna Chang, on George’s phone line after the wires get crossed and he gets a date with her, thinking she’s Chinese because of her surname. Kramer goes to a fertility clinic. Elaine ruins her friend Noreen’s latest romance with a “long talker.” George’s life is made miserable when the man in the cape is revealed to be Frank’s lawyer and his parents are separating. Kramer discovers he has a low sperm count and must stop wearing jockey shorts. Boxer shorts make him feel uncomfortable, so he decides to go commando. Later, Jerry meets Donna, who is not Chinese, but actually shortened her last name Changstein to Chang while taking on Chinese stereotypes, such as displaying interest in acupuncture or on one occasion pronouncing a word with a Chinese accent.
